The four categories of the Court Cards are essentially the royal court of Tarot: Pages, Knights, Queens and Kings. The Knights and Kings represent the archetypal masculine energies that are innate to most men. The suit or element of each Knight or King (earth/pentacles, water/cups, fire/wands and swords/air), bring this nature even more into focus, giving important clues about how your man expresses his inner self out into the world. Sensitive, internal, quiet male energy is described by the suits of Pentacles and Cups, while extroverted, outgoing and gregarious personalities falls under the suits of Swords and Wands.

So how do you use these cards to explain your introverted man’s behavior?
First assess which stage of life your guy is in. Is he a Knight, (usually aged 18-40), striving to create his place in the world, make his mark and searching for adventures and new possibilities? Or is he a King, (usually aged 40-80+), mature, experienced, settled and secure in his life?
Then determine if your introverted guy falls into the “Pentacles” or “Cups” category. Pentacles men are sensual, grounded and hardworking. They may be slow to get going, but once they rouse themselves, they can commit for the long-haul. The Pentacles man needs routines, stability and structure to feel good and thrives on home cooking, traditional relationship structures and patience. Help your man grow and expand by gently and slowly introducing him to new experiences, people and situations. The more you “show” rather than “tell”, the better this man responds.
Cups men are emotional, intuitive and compassionate. They usually have some type of creative talent or interest and are skilled at exploring the watery terrain of dreams and emotions. A Cups man needs space to let his feelings flow and allow his imagination to take center stage. They love nature, alone time and shared creative endeavors. Help your relationship with this guy grow by joining them at art shows, poetry readings and concerts. Cups men love to support you emotionally, so don’t be afraid to let your hair down and show them your inner world, since they will appreciate your vulnerability and trust.
