Sovereignty in the Courts
|Rohrig – Princess of Cups|
This is a very special day – the Leap Year Day where women can ask their beloved to marry them without having to go through the pantomime of sighing and dragging their feet as they go past every jeweller’s window on the High Street.
I myself open the door of wedding dress shops and shout ‘Don’t Do It!’ Cynical, moi?
Flamboyant playwright Oscar Wilde once said that it was the tragedy of every woman to turn into her mother and that it was the tragedy of every man that he didn’t.
Or something like that.
This got me thinking: How do you think that sovereignty is transferred in your Tarot deck? Do the Kings marry into the Queen’s suit or do the Queens marry in to the King’s suit?
That might all sound a bit confusing……I’ll try to clarify and hope that I don’t tie myself in knots as I do so!
Think of our own Dear Queen Elizabeth. OK, she was of the House of Windsor (or Saxe-Coburg and Gotha as they are REALLY called) and Prince Philip married IN to the Windsors from the equally confusing and non-Greek sounding House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg.
The Tarot’s Court Cards are my specialist area. They talk to me.
Not LITERALLY though ….
