form of divination
practiced by the Italian psychic Maria Rosa Donati-Evstigneeff. The practice
requires ten straight pins and three bent pins. They are shaken in cupped
hands and then dropped on a surface dusted with powder. The procedure seemed
to involved some sort of psychic faculty which is related to divinatory
forms such as geomancy and reading tea leaves. A.G.H.
