Welcome to the courts! the most complex, enigmatic, and at times maddening cards in tarot.  But here at Fortune's Wheelhouse we love the court cards in all their hard-to-grasp humanity, and we hope our discussion will help you in your own quest to come to terms with them.  In this episode we discuss the esoteric structure of the court card system and its relationship to the face cards of the familiar poker deck. We talk about the ever-so-unfortunate divergence in nomenclature between RWS courts and Thoth courts, and about all the fourfold systems represented in the courts.

For the King of Wands (RWS) or Knight of Wands (Thoth) we come within scorching distance of the fiery part of fire! We consider his relationship to the 7 of Cups and the 8 and 9 of Wands, as well as to the majors Death and Temperance/Art.  We talk of thunder and lightning, Hercules and Caesar, the mysteries of salamanders and black stallions and how His Speedy Swiftness makes us "Click to Buy"!

To learn more about the suit of Wands, the world of Atziluth, the ripe transformation of the number Ten, the color schemes of the cards, and so much else, be sure to visit us at www.patreon.com/fortuneswheelhouse. You can also shop for Fortune's Wheelhouse T-shirts, mugs, backpacks, stickers, and more! at our RedBubble shop.
