Daily Draw: Tarocco Piemontese Tarot ~ Pips
If you were playing a hard-nose game of Tarocco in 1517 would you know which pip was sword and which wand? Is it consistent across all pip decks, straight and curved?
I'm reminded by these cards, while sorting the deck by suit, because I didn't remember, I've forgotten which card was my draw. Does it matter? Don't know. Why are three aces elegant and the Wand the dolt in the corner?
Wands are carried, Swords are wielded. Swords are brains and Wands brawn, like right click and left click on a computer mouse. My card must have been an eight, understanding and undertaking.
I think...curved is Sword, straight is Wand. Insight welcome. As an aside it has only taken me eighty minutes to write/erase/write this post. Definitely was an eight of something.
