Oracle de Belline: Index


This is my first time starting a study group, so sorry if anything doesn't seem to make sense.

The Oracle de Belline was created sometime between 1845 and 1865 by the Magus Edmond. The cards were rediscovered in the 1950s by Marcel Belline, who made the oracle famous under his own name.

The deck has 53 cards: 7 cards for each of the 7 astrological planets, 3 significators, and an extra card used as a talisman.

The artwork is kind of simple, and I have some trouble with the symbols at times, but I'll try to share whatever knowledge I have.
