Sola Busca Tarot Deck

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.

According to Many Schools of Thought

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

The Tower struck by Lightning. Its alternative titles are: Castle of Plutus, God's House and the Tower of Babel. In the last case, the figures falling therefrom are held to be Nimrod and his minister. It is assuredly a card of confusion, and the design corresponds, broadly speaking, to any of the designations except Maison Dieu, unless we are to understand that the House of God has been abandoned and the veil of the temple rent. It is a little surprising that the device has not so far been allocated to the destruction Of Solomon's Temple, when the lightning would symbolize the fire and sword with which that edifice was visited by the King of the Chaldees.

S. L. MacGregor Mathers's Divinatory Meanings

Upright

Ruin, Disruption, Over-throw, Loss, Bankruptcy

Reversed

These in a more or less partial degree.

Papus's Divinatory Meanings

Ruin. Deception.
