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.
Jack of All Trades. One who can provide himself with anything he needs.
One who knows how to best use the talents of others. A maven.
The Star, Dog-Star, or Sirius, also called fantastically the Star of the Magi. Grouped about it are seven minor luminaries, and beneath it is a naked female figure, with her left knee upon the earth and her right foot upon the water. She is in the act of pouring fluids from two vessels. A bird is perched on a tree near her; for this a butterfly on a rose has been substituted in some later cards. So also the Star has been called that of Hope. This is one of the cards which Court de Gebelin describes as wholly Egyptian-that is to say, in his own reverie.
Hope, Expectation, Bright promises
Hopes not fulfilled, Expectations disappointed or fulfilled in a minor degree.
