The Power of the Pips: Courting Numbers in Cartomancy introduces the reader to the following method of reading the pip cards of the Marseille Tarot cards:
- Think about the essential properties that form the four suits in a pack of cards.
- Don’t think ‘meaning’.
As symbolic meaning is presented as situational, all the examples discussed highlight the importance of reading the cards in context, rather than seeing them as carriers of inherent signification.
The style follows the same tone as in the companion book: The Power of the Trumps: A Subtle Burst, whose premise is to deconstruct set cartomantic clichés.
