Court Cards - actual people?

Thread originally posted on the Aeclectic Tarot Forum on 07 Apr 2002, and now archived in the Forum Library.

I have been thinking about this issue for the past few days.

When the court cards appear in a reading do they mean the influence of another person or is it really about the querent themselves? Sometimes I feel like it is a person influencing the situation and other times I feel it is about the querent, is it okay to interpret differently? :confused:

How do you wise ones here at Aeclectic interpret them?

i interpret them differently, based on the question, position, surrounding cards and my gut feelings. sorry this probably doesn't make it much easier for you. trust your instincts!

For me, sometimes I feel court cards represent the querent, or someone linked to them, depending on the surrounding cards. Sometimes, even the characteristic(s) of the card rather than an actual person. All depends. Clear as mud, huh. ;)

Sounds like I have been doing what you two do: going with what I feel's right at the time, using my intuition.

Thanks :)

As I read them, court cards refer to specific personality traits, which may or may not be standing for specific people. If they do represent people, they're people who embody (or need to develop) those specific traits.

"As I read them, court cards refer to specific personality traits, which may or may not be standing for specific people. If they do represent people, they're people who embody (or need to develop) those specific traits."

I usually see the court cards as the important influencing people around me, and thats how i recognise who the court cards represent...by linking character type...

Sometimes, I just read the court cards in the same way as the other minors, but with more emphasis on their meaning...

I guess it just depends on the question, and the answer...coming up with a hard and fast rule might be a little difficult, but then, everyone reads differently...

Depending on the moment & the throw, I read court cards variously. They can refer to an aspect or aspects of the querent; people in the querent's life or their influence; situations (the stage of development indicated by the rank); concepts (similar to the Aces of the suits), but progressed. Sometimes, the court card refers to more than one of the above as I tend to see multi-faceted meanings.

I have to agree with the rest here; it heavily depends on so many factors.. Still, for whats it worth, I never had a situation in which I had the idea the card was referring to a person; I'm solely focussing on their meanings so far.

muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhahahahahaha
uhhhh

I interpret thecards as people..........queens older lady, pages young people ...kids to 34yearsold........knights as bad young people....trouble makers......or badadults ...........if they fall beside queens/ pages..............Like say for instance...you are a older lady whose birthday is in Latedecember......so your significator is queen of pentacles........buttttttttttttttttttt you want to know about your marriage especially your husband.....well, If a page comes up......and the knight falls into place too..............oh my gosh............Affair with a younger person....that person has the knight...troublemaker.................page means their young.......so anyway they represent people for me..... OH Flashh some insight
I just got someinsight.all of a sudden......


Okay, I uses Keltic cross method alot ..so the only time the court cards do not represent people but states of mind.................is if they fall in the hopes and the fears part of the Celtic cross spread...that is position 7 and 9.................... WOW!! hey does that make sense....I just guessed that guys....reallyi just did..........
