    The Magician?

    :dance: wow, I thought it would take a little longer than that, Gail!

    The belt that the Magician wear is called an ouroboros.

    From Pictures from the Heart: a Tarot Dictionary:

    “An ancient symbol of a serpent or lizard bent in a circle to bite its own tail…it is another image of the resolution of opposites. It represents alchemical work as a circular, self-contained process of distillation and condensation.”

    The symbol of the “salamander” we talked about in our chats is actually considered an ouroboros and can be found on the King, Knight and Page of wands as well.

    Because the Magician wears this symbol as a belt, his ouroboros is separating the upper body (mind and heart) from the lower body (instinct and sexuality).

    You’re next Gail!:wave:

    Ok…first time for me…

    There are yellow butterflies on the horse in the Knight of Swords. I found other butterflies but they are not yellow.

    Ellen, you got it. :)

    The butterfly on her crown is a symbol of her emergence from a chrysalis: she transforms into the self-assured Queen depicted on the card.

    OK, I waited awhile for someone else to guess it since it’s getting very difficult to find new symbols.

    Seven of cups?

    This one should be easy. I think we have already covered most of the symbols on the cards.

    An inverted pentagram.

    Yes, Agnez, that means you get to choose another one, if you want to. It might be difficult to find anything that hasn’t already been chosen.
