I thought of a system using the court cards to describe different paths of alchemy.
I don't think this was intended by whoever named the cards. Anyway, It goes like this:

Ace - Acetone path
King - Regulus path
Queen (Reina) - kidney/urine path
Jack/Knave - kinaver; kinnaber; Cinnabar path
10 could represent the 10th sephiroth - the path of earth/clay/VITRIOL...


So it could work as a cabalistic way of speaking of the paths without revealing them to those who don't know the system.

if we want to continue, using the tree of life model:
9 = luna and could represent the path of Dew.
8 = mercury; the amalgam path...
