With good comes right

Golden Tarot (Visconti-Sforza)
This week I will be drawing from the oldest decks in my collection: Visconti-Sforza, Tarot de Marseilles, Soprafino, and Rider-Waite Smith.

Today I've drawn the 3 of Coins from the Visconti-Sforza. It's the oldest almost-complete tarot known, painted for the Vistconti-Sforza family. Their family motto, 'A bon droyt' (With good, right), appears on many of the cards, particularly in the coins suit. The coins themselves are the sun from the Visconti-Sforza family crest.

The 3 of Coins often means team work to me, which makes perfect sense for today, because I will be working with two colleagues to  shortlist for two new members of staff. We will need to work quickly, efficiently and with a spirit of cooperation in order to get this task done in the allotted time, and of course the outcome of our work is very important. It's always vital to recruit the right people, even if the job is just a part time of very few hours a week doing relatively mundane tasks (which this is). You still need someone who can do the job and is reliable!

I quite like the Visconti-Sforza deck, and the Golden Tarot is a nice kit, but be warned. Some of them are printed crooked. Mine is one of the crooked ones. (This card is slightly crooked, some of them in my deck are very off-centre indeed!) Instead of an exchange, I settled on a refund, because I didn't want the hassle of possibly getting a second poorly printed one and having to go through the returns process again. The good folk at Book Depository let me keep the flawed copy, so I use it anyway. Though the crooked cards are quite off-putting I must admit, it is a nice deck to have in my collection, however flawed. :)


  1. "the good Folk" They sure are. Their customer service is great. When necessary I usually ask for another deck so I can put the best cards of both decks together.

    1. Too bad I didn't think of that! :)
