The Sweeney Tarot was designed to read with reversals. Having the expected 78 cards, one could use any system of meanings with it.

The Fey Tarot is the work of Mara Aghem. While the card names mostly track conventional tarot naming, the scenes differ from Pamela Coleman Smith’s renditions.

Today’s cards: The Tower, Queen of Wands, & 5 of Pentacles. Continue reading What Does The Deck Say? October 16, 2017

One of many Baraja Española decks, the “Baraja Azteca – As de Oro” is a 48 card deck of playing cards used for such games as Brisca, Tute, and Mus. This 48-card variant of the deck contains four suits; Oros (Coins), Bastos (Clubs), Espadas (Swords), and Copas (Cups).

A Vacation In Name Only

Due to a series of flipped tables, the Etsy portion of Noxporium will be on Vacation Status for the remainder of the year. The daily What Does The Deck Say posts will continue, and I may open the free one-card drawing as time allows. I will still be available for technical questions, however until circumstances have been settled out, I will not be performing paid readings until after January 1st, 2018.

Should circumstances be settled out sooner than expected, I will reopen the shop then and make an announcement here.
