Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Portable Magic: They form a family unit the sexual interaction of which gives rise to what Crowley termed the ‘formula of Tetragrammaton’ ( The Book of Thoth, 16). It was the Golden Dawn teaching that the court card types were not eternally fixed, but changed from one to another in an unceasing dynamic interaction that is like a dance of life. Mathers represented this dance by the curious names given to the court cards in the Golden Dawn Tarot. The Kings were also called Knights; the Knights were called Kings or Princes. The naming structure of the court cards in the Golden Dawn Tarot is based on the formula of Tetragrammaton. All human types are expressed by the court cards, and human beings do not remain at one age, or in one social position, but evolve and change. The Knight becomes the King. The Page becomes the Queen. The older generation gives way to the newer generation, and the wheel of life revolves.

Reversed Cards: Have you ever been stuck at the departure gate at the airport or worse, on the tarmac? If you have, you know exactly how this card feels when it is in the protection position. You are all set and ready to fly away, move on, and get going, but insteadnothing. You just sit there. No movement whatsoever. Complete bummer. Most of the time you find out why after the fact, which is more than likely the case with this card as well. Knowing why it is in the protection aspect wont serve you in any way. If anything, it will only aggravate you. But later, after you have arrived at your destination, hindsight will be a beautiful thing.
