About the Deck

The oldest complete tarot deck we possess, and one of the only early decks to be fully illustrated.

It is by no means certain, but it has been alleged that the Sola Busca tarot deck was commissioned to honor Alfonso d'Este on the occasion of his wedding to Anna Sforza, granddaughter of Bianca Maria Visconti.

Provenance

Italy, c.1491.

Meaning of Nerone from the Sola Busca Tarot Deck Deck

Malicious neglect.

Reversed

Mistreatment of the weak.

According to Many Schools of Thought

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Fortitude. This is one of the cardinal virtues, of which I shall speak later. The female figure is usually represented as closing the mouth of a lion. In the earlier form which is printed by Court de Gebelin, she is obviously opening it. The first alternative is better symbolically, but either is an instance of strength in its conventional understanding, and conveys the idea of mastery. It has been said that the figure represents organic force, moral force and the principle of all force.

S. L. MacGregor Mathers's Divinatory Meanings

Reversed

Papus's Divinatory Meanings

Justice.
