About The “What Does The Deck Say” Posts

Each weekday you can find a post titled “What Does The Deck Say” followed by the calendar day of posting. The post features three cards from a cartomancy deck followed by an interpretation of those cards. Many subscribers use the post as a general forecast for their day even though the cards are not being thrown for them specifically.

The “WDTDS” series evolved as a way to show my reading style and how card interpretations can vary not just from card placement but from deck to deck. It is for this reason that the posts are tagged with the cards used so that inquiring persons such as yourself can view other posts using that card(s) and gain context for my reading style.

Sometimes the three cards grant an aphorism. Sometimes they tell a story. Sometimes they leave a plot point for some enterprising writer to pick up and run with. But ultimately, at the beginning and end of the day, the series is nothing more than a broken clock.

It is said that a broken clock is right twice a day, that time being when the time of the moment aligns with the position of the hands on the frozen clock face. So it is with the WDTDS posts. The contextless pulls may occasionally speak to your personal circumstances at the moment you read it. It may appear to give you hope. It may appear to give you advice. It may appear to give you a laugh. It may appear to give you resolve.

It does nothing but provide to you a surface to reflect upon and ponder.

What you take away from the post is what you have already been considering but did not acknowledge until that aligning moment in time.

It tells you nothing new.

Those wanting a personalized reading are welcome to commission such through Ko-Fi: Noxporium. All readings can be customized and if none meet your needs, a dialogue can be opened to create a reading that would fit your concerns.

Those wanting to know more about my reading style and decks are also welcome to open dialogue with me. A single deck of cards can be read so many different ways, after all. How much more then can multiple decks or even the same card across decks.

Make of that, what you may.

Commissions Temporarily Closed

As there is shopkeeping to be done, Noxporium will be closed for free and commissioned readings starting July 4, 2021. Commissions will be available starting July 12, 2021.

The “Contact Nox” will continue to be available for conversation and general questions, however requests for readings will not be honored there.

The “What Does The Deck Say” posts will continue, and you may use your favorite RSS reader to follow along or check the website daily.

Thank you,

Due to circumstances that I saw coming but thought I could manage anyway, there will be no What Does The Deck Say post for July 2, 2021.

Be kind to yourself. Drink water. Take five minutes today to write a note to yourself about something you like and what it means to you. Take that note and put it someplace safe so when those who would burn your joy try to do just that, you can remind yourself why you loved the thing in the first place.

Instead, sometime today a phrase, word, or sound from the background noise you usually ignore will catch your attention. Chase the idea it gives you.

Unfortunately, there will be no What Does The Deck Say post for Monday, October 19, 2020 as complications became obstacles that took priority.

If you would like something to read, may we present A Light In The Darkness, a work of fiction written by Kerian Nox telling the story of a young woman walking out and through the twenty-two cards of the tarot Major Arcana as she removes herself from other people’s games and discovers who she has always been.

The weekday What Does The Deck Say posts will resume on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.
