Lastly, there are the kings in the court. Here each king will speak in its own voice.
The King of cups
“I am elegantly draped, a graceful man with good taste. I speak from the heart and I charm all my listeners. On occasions, I’m haughty, and love beautiful things. I’m a man that loves, sometimes a father, and the potential to love. Like cupid I point my arrow and nail my target.”
The Kind of swords
“My sword is unsheathed and I’m ready for whatever may come my way, poised for combat. I’m a young king, alert and unscrupulous. I’m also self-righteous, and seek to prove my might. Some consider me dark, but in truth I’m the power of might and cunning. I am war, I am swift action, quick movement, a magician, and on occasions the dead.”
The King of batons
“I am young and wily, strong and hardworking. I have a clear vision, and a determination that always shapes that vision into fruition. With my mighty scepter in hand and confident stance, I am virility personified. Self-assured, direct, a man of brawn. I’m the power to act, willingness, the determination to construct, to create, to form.
The King of coins
“A wise king I am. A measured man. I stare intently at my treasure as I have amassed substantial wealth. My robes are costly, my throne is grand. I know the machinations of the mind and how to use them to my advantage. The land at my feet is fertile because I am acquired abundance. I am often a learned man, astute, with the power to spend, also the potential for financial freedom, and the best business partner. I am sovereignty.”
I hope you like what I’ve done with the courts, specifically with The Spanish Tarot. This can be done with any tarot deck, just look and observe what is unfolding in the card. Now to finish these surveys with the suit of batons…
