Who are the peoples portrayed on the Star card? It's too small and I may not be familiar with thoses faces (not living in US).

I'm gonna get myself a copy!

The Wheel of Fortune card seems very apt, with France's Marine Le Pen on the ascendant and Germany's Angela Merkel on her way down on next year's elections in both countries. I wonder who is the (presumably French because of the flag) person on the bottom rung of the wheel though? Is it Francois Fillon?

Regarding the 14 portraits on the Star card I guess it might be what they describe here "we include a special section featuring forecasts from 14 globally-minded millennials, ranging from a Syrian refugee-turned-photographer, an iconoclastic Chilean reggaeton artist, one of ballet’s biggest emerging names and leading online voices for young Africans and Muslim American women."

And we can see Hope meaning of the Star Card attributed to theses young peoples as future generations.
