Whether known as Fathers, Kings or Knights* in your own Tarot deck, this final group of the Tarot Court will almost always be a senior male to yourself, in rank and/or age. They will represent your father, your uncle, your bank manager – the mature males, and generally the ones we look up to in life. Being a King instantly reminds us of hierarchies, be that at home, at school or university, or in the workplace, and as such he will always be seen as ‘patriarchal’.
Ranging from adolescents to young adults (and often a little older), Knights and Princes within the Tarot Court cards will almost certainly be male. As people they can be seen to be active, even the elementally passive Knights and Princes are the most active of their suit and element (Cups and Disks).
