Correspondence of symbols


We followed the original French suite. We have linked the pentacle and the club. The club represents prosperity in France since the 14th century because the pentacles were struck with a "tribole" or club.

For the wand and the diamond, when the sticks are crossed in the Tarot de Marseille they represent a "losange" or diamond. In France the diamond is called "carreau" it is crossbow's arrow that has no relationship with wealth.

Apparently it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced the correspondence (diamonds/pentacles - clubs/wands) with the translation « club » and « diamond ».


We wanted to follow our grandmother's way of reading :)
