Since my previous post got lost in the security roll-back, I figured that, rather than retyping it all, I would post the link to my blog article which includes the text of my original post and more. To answer the second part of the question, I almost never use clarifiers. I just follow James Ricklef's advice.

Thank you! Your article helped a lot! I sometimes do put the burden of the court cards on the client, but I always wondered if that wouldn't be unadvisable. We always forget the client also has it's own intuition, and that it will probably kick in stronger than ever in a tarot reading ahahhaa

thanks, many blessings!
My thinking has always been that, at the subconscious level, my clients know their own personal reality far better than I do, but I wouldn't give them too much rope. I still have to read the cards as they lay. Client insights are mainly valuable when I'm scratching my head over alternative meanings. I consider a reading to be a dialogue, not a monologue, and a mutual voyage of discovery.

Maybe you will find some answers in our old thread about court cards? They're tricky cards, I know ;-)

I do, but you may get in trouble listening to me :icon_lol: .

On Court cards

I have been studying Tarot for over 3 years now, and the court cards still elude me. I believe that they're the card with most possible different interpretations in the tarot, and grasping the right one for the situation always seem such a hard task. I know that they always have been trouble for beginner and intermediary tarot readers, but I wonder if someone have some advice on how to take them?

When a reading shows many court cards, I sigh loudly :icon_cry:

It's very hard for me to differentiate between court cards of the same suit too, because they have some common qualities, and the thing that seem to set them apart is their degree of maturity and control over their element. Wich really seems unfortunate because I don't appreciate putting the queens under the kings in any "maturity/evolution" scale. I think the queens are like avatars to the elements. They emanate and embody their powers and characteristics, while the kings are more dominant with their elements, they control and use their powers and characteristics skillfully, but without being their own elements. So for me it's a question of approach, maybe. But I digress.

still, court cards my represent people, events, personality characteristics and much more. So they always seems cryptic to me in a reading.

If I ask "what I should avoid" and I receive a knight of cups, should I avoid a romantic person? Should I avoid a proposal? Or should I avoid being overly romantic, melodramatic?
Do I use clarifiers for every court card?

Sorry for the long post, but these rascals were always my biggest challenge in tarot
