One of them at any rate, the symbolism is so multivalent I have no particular problem in considering attributions as so many local variables. My squaring the circle method matched the bateleur card with the sun card, and popesse with the moon card; thus suggesting a planetary day correspondence:

bateleur - sun
popesse - moon
empress - mars
wheel of fortune - mercury
house of god - jupiter
sun - venus
world - saturn

I am quite happy working with spanish, the english or french school variations or my own attributions with letter, numerological and astrological attributions as so many local as opposed to global variables; all perfectly workable within their own sub-set.
