The tarot has its own system of personalities represented by the 16 court cards - the King, Queen, Knight and Page of each suit. In this lesson you will learned about the four suits and court card ranks. These are the keys to understanding the court cards because the personality of each one is a combination of its suit and rank.

Pages often represent the very beginning of the development of the personality, and have a child-like quality about them. The energy of the Pages is often very child-like, young, immature and feminine.
