I did a reading last night and the Princess of Swords and the Queen of Swords both came up. The family resemblence got me thinking (I know, calm down )

When I think of court cards I usually think of them maturing in sequence:
Page / Princess
Knight / Prince
Queen
King

But with these court cards I'm thinking
Princess matures into Queen
Prince matures into King

I can look at a Princess, see her characteristics and see them again but older in the Queen.

This just makes the court cards easier to read (for me it does anyway)
