The Cards of Nostradamus

03 Aug

Images in this deck are taken from the Iconologia, a Renaissance symbol treatise by Cesare Ripa, allegorical representations of feelings, moods, habits, virtues, states of mind, etc.

I would use this deck not for fortune telling but its accurate and good if you want to know the attitude, behavior, habits etc of someone or the attitude, behavior, habits etc between 2 people, how they react to each other or even how the attitude, behavior, habits etc of someone regarding a situation.

So this is not a tarot deck per se. There is no major arcana, no minor arcana, no suits, no court cards. There are 78 numbered cards, each with a figure and motto.

Here are all 78, in order:

Ambition, Maturity, Will, Power, Tradition, Understanding, Progress, Equilibrium, Spirituality, Opportinities, Virtue, Knowledge, Metamorphosis, Rebirth, Materialism, Vanity, Fantasy, Fears, Ostentation, Merits, Notoriety, Truth, Perfection, Ties, Invention, Economy, Friendship, Stagnation, Learning, Completion, Helpfulness, Conversation, Submission, Conquest, Generosity, Reverence, Glory, Exchange, Concreteness, Trust, Sincerity, Wait, Vagueness, Integrity, Humility, Order, Goodness, Independence, Hospitality, Moderation, Superiority, Conflicts, Hard Work, Tenacity, Vigor, Waste, Prudence, Art, Success, Wisdom, Diligence, Constancy, Kindliness, Consideration, Rule, Agreements, Contradictions, Regrets, Obligations, Precaution, Experience, Teaching, Mortification, Yearning, Altruism, Defense, Loyalty, Duties.

For the meanings you can get it here. There are over 300 allegorical representations of feelings, moods, habits, virtues, states of mind, etc but only 78 was chosen for the deck.
