The Princess are rather more unwieldy, but can still be broken down.
I was reading Liber Theta on the court cards the other day, and noticed that it refers to the first ("cross-sign") decan for each card as the "shadow decan." I've already used the idea in my own way before, but this will help to codify it in my thinking. It works kind of like "cross-sign" aspects in astrology, seems to me.
