And this card,
Which is blank, is something he carries on his back
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The blank card is “The Fool”; he carries a purse over his back (he doesn’t see it) at the end of a stick. The Fool card in Tarot is un-numbered (blank).
Alternately, the connotation here may be that since Madame Sosostris cannot read the blank card, or find The Hanged Man, s/he is a fraud and a phony. Keep in mind that Eliot’s model here, Madame Sesostris in Crome Yellow, was a man pretending to be a woman.
