Oracle de Belline: Card 16: The Home


French Name: Les Pénates.

Number: 16.

Planet: Moon.

Appearance: A tower-shaped house.

Keywords: Security, Protection, Intimacy.

Personal Notes: The French title is hard to translate exactly. Literally, Les Pénates were the Dii Penates, the ancient Roman gods who protected the household. This is the home defined as "where the heart is". Although the card shows a tower and is number 16, The Home certainly carries different connotations from The Tower in Tarot. Rather, it seems to be much closer to the positive meaning of The Tower in Lenormand.
