reading that the tarot suit known as pentacles/coins/discs was also sometimes called "specchi"—mirrors—in 15th century italy, which is seriously making me reconsider my relationship with the cards in that suit

@aparrish
Is this the explanation for the famous "monkey looking into a mirror" card in the Venetian deck?

(Immortalized in the PD with "this book is a mirror: when a monkey looks in, no sage looks out!")

@aparrish ooooo, a literal shiny! *grabs a shiny coin and admires xer face in it*
