Oracle de Belline: Card 8: Thought/Friendship


French Name: Pensée Amitié.

Number: 8.

Planet: Sun.

Appearance: A dog's head above a flower.

Keywords: Loyalty, Affection, True friends.

Personal Notes: Edmond made a pun in the artwork here: the French word "pensée" can mean either "thought" or "pansy". In the Language of Flowers, pansies not only symbolize thoughts, but intense love (remember A Midsummer Night's Dream?). The dog, of course, is man's best friend.
