Oracle de Belline: Card 17: Sickness


https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-9...h577-no/17.jpg

French Name: Maladie.

Number: 17.

Planet: Moon.

Appearance: An eagle stands on the back of a toad.

Keywords: Trouble, Ill health, Depression.

Personal Notes: This is one of those cards that confuses the heck out of me. I can figure out that the toad is a lunar symbol with connotations of sickness and poison, but I don't see the connection with the eagle. There might be a connection to the Emblem of Avicenna, which shows an eagle connected to a toad with a golden chain, but my understanding of alchemical symbols is pretty rusty. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
