The Court Cards – Pages
These cards depict people and personalities, not the whole personality but a part of it or a characteristic. The card almost always represents the querent unless the card shows up in the “situation” position or the “external influences” position. If the Court Card is in the “situation” position it may represent the personality of the situation, in the “external” position it maybe someone close to the querent who is influencing the current issue. Otherwise, when a court card shows up in a reading presume it is a character trait of the querent’s personality that is of prime concern in their situation/question.
The Court Cards may correlate to the 16 personality types in the Myers-Briggs Personality Trait Indicator (MBTI) and here are some links if anyone wants to check it out.. Myers-Briggs Personality Pathways
