Court cards (I am who I am)

A couple of weeks ago I bought Mary K. Greer's and Tom Little's book, Understanding the tarot court. It's a shame it isn't published in Dutch, but that sure counts for a lot of tarot books.
Because of the two year tarot class I'm taking, I have a special interest in the court cards at the moment. And since I'm one of those people who want to have everything there is on the subject I'm interested in, I think this book is a great addition to my collection!

By the way, hope you understand my writings a little. English isn't my natural language of course.

One of the exercises in the book is picking out your significator. That's the court card you feel most connected with.
Today I picked the page of pentacles. I used the Universal Waite deck.

Why did I pick this card? I think it's because of the curiosity that this page is looking at the pentacle in his hands with. He sees the opportunities that lie in it and he kind of admires that. Of course he's also a young person and I am too, but I didn't look at the pages only. This card really stood out for me.
That curiosity is something that I can connect with. It's in my nature I guess. And when something pulls my attention (like tarot did), I can see a thousand of opportunities...........

What a great signifcator to have picked, he represents as you say all those fresh opportunities that you can approach with child like enthusiasm and just dive in there for the pure pleasure of doing it!

I too like the way he holds up the pentacle and is considering what his next step will be and even maybe where it could take him.

Helen :O)
