"A "Grand Tableau" highlights where clusters of color can be found, and allows the reader to find storylines at first glance, using the red Stop cards as punctuation. Clusters of color emphasize troublesome or stale areas within seconds, and movement is clear to the naked eye."
The guidebook gives an overview of the color-coding of the cards, such as many red cards in a spread show a stalled situation. The main characters are the most important cards in the deck. The author gives explanations on how to use them to get the best readings. The rest of the book is devoted to the separated color-codes and the cards included in each division.
For example, the Green cards are People in your reading. The people can represent a person in your life, but they can also bring their aura into the reading. The Rich Gent's presence in your reading can go from good guy to rival depending on where he lays next to the main character. His aura brings a sense of finances, investments, and ambition.
Red cards represent stop signs, the end of a sentence in the reading, or a slow-moving situation. Blue cards show change and movement. The Pink cards are connectors to the situation of the reading. Yellow cards show cause and effect. These are the cards that show challenges.
Each card is given a two-page description, including: Card image and title, a short phrase, an overview, Imagery, Placement, Daily Advice, Positive and Negative Meanings.
