Decoding the energies of the Tarot Court

King of Pentacles
From The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

If you struggle with interpreting the court cards, not knowing when to see them as people, when to see them as ways of responding to a situation, or when to interpret them as events, this  class with professional Tarot teacher and astrologer, Sara Gilbert is for you!

Your layout is great and accurate…Very informative and insightful. These are a few of the positive comments from people who took part in the live recording of the class.

Astrology is central to Sara’s approach to interpreting the Tarot Court. In this class she looks at links between the court cards and astrology, including:

  • their connections to the planets, the zodiac signs and their characteristics
  • the elements that sit behind them and most esoteric systems
  • how to use them in timing
  • their creation and relationship to each other on the Kabbalistic Tree of Life.

For an overview of Sara’s astrological approach to interpreting the court cards, read her blog post Decoding the energies of the Tarot Court.
