Reading Court Cards In a Tarot Spread
Hi, I'm new to tarot interpretation and I recently got a number of Court Cards in a spread I did for myself...
I had asked about a friends visit.
The cards I drew were: Love & Me - The King of Swords
Higher Power - The King of Wands
Foundation - The Queen of Pentacles
The Love Situation: The Fool
Love Challenges: The Ace of Swords
Recent Past: The Lovers
Near Future: The 8 of Cups
Blocks/Inhibitions: The Hanged Man
Significant Other: The Star
Advice: 2 of Cups
Long term Potential: 4 of Pentacles
I'm confused about how the cards fit together. Is it possible for one person to be represented by more than 1 Court Card in a reading?
I'm not familiar with the 8 of cups...what impact does it have on the cards around it?
I'd really appreciate if someone could talk me through the reading from their point of view. Combining the cards is where I've been struggling lately.

I think the two Kings are representing the man in question. The Queen of Pentacles in foundation with The Fool as situation and Ace of Swords as Challenges suggests that you may need to ground yourself a bit and engage your head with your heart. The 8 of Cups and 2 of Cups tell me that there is one person doing all of the giving in this situation and a balance of give and take is required -- if the other person does not step up to the plate to even things out, then the other must exercise enough self-respect to walk away. Boundaries!!!
Hope this helps a bit,
