Laurel has several meanings (the plant), one is victory because the ancient Greeks would crown the person with victory leaves, but the other meaning is prophesy, which is why (i think) it is used so heavily in Tarot.

If you decide to go with the 7 original planets then the Moon is associated with the HP and the veiled woman, so it couldn't be the chariot because the chariot also rules the moon.

I like the idea of the 7 deadly sins though because the 7 of Cups tends more towards being slightly negative because we get so caught up with all the choices and desires.

Lust: veiled woman
Greed: Jeweled Cup
Gluttony: Castle
Sloth/Sadness: Woman with the closed eyes who is all "blue"
Wrath: Dragon
Envy:Snake
Pride: Wreath

Of course, I'm going to have to think about this some more as I just came up with that right now. What do you think of the list?

I went to wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_deadly_sins

One artist put Pride down as the tower of babel, so that might even be the castle.
I guess what I am getting at here....and trying to say......is that since all the imagery is a figment of the imagination, ie.....no basis in reality........how can the images have any meaning at all since they are just an array of fantasies in a cloud of fog?
