Valentine Matching of Tarot Court - Final Reveal

12:23 PM 0 Comments
Tara... !!

Now I finally present you which of the Court Cards are dating, attracted to each other or just envious of the other Tarot Court Cards.

Please note my findings are based and inspired by the Tom Little's and Mary K Greer's Understanding the Tarot Cards book.

The dating results are as follows:

#1. King of Coins, Colonel Brandon and Queen of Swords, Anne Elliot are in a relationship. Why not? Colonel Brandon is ready to come in and rescue any young lady in financial trouble, and Anne Elliot is a well accomplished lady in need of such assistance.  They are also close in age and I truly believe they make a nice couple.

#2 Queen of Wands, Elizabeth Bennett and the Knight of Wands, Mr Henry Tilney are flirting with each other, but the Knight of Wands (Mr Tilney) is also having an affair with the Page of Swords, Emma Woodhouse.
Lets just say that the Queen of Wands is Aries who is naturally attracted to the Knight of Wands, a Leo. Astrologically speaking those two are a good match. As far as the love affair of the Knight of Wands with the Page of Swords I will leave it for you to comment on this below.

#3 The King of Wands, Captain Wentworth is seeing the young and vulnerable Page of Cups, Marianne Dashwood, who is just starting dating.

#4 The King of Swords, Fitzwilliam Darcy and the Queen of Cups, Jane Bennett are attracted to each other. And this is true, because we already know from Pride & Prejudice story that Mr Darcy is considering Jane Bennett more attractive than Elizabeth Bennett at first, and the only reason he is not pursuing her is because his friend, Mr Bingly already showed an interest in her.

#5 The Knight of Cups, Mr. John Willoughby longs after the Queen of Cups, Jane Bennett but she has no interest in him. Mr Willoughby is an incurable charmer and he is especially pursing the sensitive cups lady, but she is mature enough to see through him, and beyond his shallow charms.

#6 Page of Wands, Lydia Bennett and the Knight of Coins, Mr Edward Ferrars are having a platonic relationship. Lydia Bennett is a born flirt but Mr. Edward Ferrars is rather reserved, and very shy, completely unable to pursue a relationship with the daring Lydia. Therefore, their relationship stays platonic.

#7 However, the Page of Coins, Charlotte Lucas is jealous at the Knight of Coins, Mr Ferrars.

#8 King of Cups, Mr Charles Bingley and the Queen of Coins, Elinor Dashwood have a marriage of convenience. Elinor Dashwood is calculated and unfeeling enough to settle for a man of fortune, such as Mr. Bingley.

#9 The Knight of Swords, Frank Churchill is single and jealous at all the other couples.

This concludes the Valentine Court Card Matching, if you want to leave comments below you are welcome to do so... and please feel free to express who you see as a couple or not.

All Pages embody the element of earth. Pages or Maidens how are called in the Jane Austen Tarot  do NOT own zodiacal property, but they serve other court cards.
