Oracle de Belline: Card 40: Beauty


French Name: Beauté.

Number: 40.

Planet: Jupiter.

Appearance: A crown floats above a heart, which floats above a blooming yellow flower.

Keywords: Aesthetics, Art, Harmony.

Personal Notes: Each element of the composition harmonizes to create a picture of beauty. It appears that the flower is a yellow iris, which appears to radiate light in the brackish waters of a marsh. Legend has it that King Clovis used irises to find which parts of the Rhine were shallow enough to cross. This is said to be where the Fleur-de-Lys derived from.
