Sola Busca Revisited 3.0
In this deck, I’ve manipulated every image to some degree – some of them I’ve completely reworked, with the hope of making it easier to read for those of us who are used to reading with Rider Waite (RW / RWS) images.
The major arcana should be easily recognizable as variations of the RWS. They’re pretty standard & there are dozens of references out there for RW major arcana.
The major arcana has been completely changed to conform to definitions of RWS.
All the court cards, I left alone for the most part (minor changes) – and most of the definitions for SB work well enough with the RW. I’ve listed everything below for you to reference & hopefully this will make it easier to read with them.
The rest of the minor arcana was a little different.
Many of the pips we recognize in the Rider Waite, but they’re not the same card. For example – the Sun card in the Sola Busca is what we would easily recognize as the Tower in Rider Waite. And the 6 of Coins in the Sola Busca, by imagery and definition – is what we know as the 8 of Coins. And it wasn’t just a few cards – it was a LOT of them. So that’s the main thing I set out to descramble, and then, there were still a few that I actually preferred the Sola Busca to the Rider Waite, so I left them & prefer the new interpretation of the image.
