This is how the cards are laid out for the year according to “The Mystic Test Book” by Olney H. Richmond, Grand Master of the Order of the Magi. Since this month/Court Card connection is based on the astrological year, the monthly Court Cards change when the zodiac signs (in Western Astrology) change. The astrological year varies from year to year but usually starts March 20 or March 21.

For example, on August 16th, when we are in still Virgo, we are under the rule of the Jack of Clubs♣ (August). When we move into Libra, then we will be governed by the King of Diamonds♦ (September).
