Dear Noxporium: Stop Card

Anonymous” inquires: “How do you know what your ‘stop’ card is?

A Stop card, as I have understood it, is a particular card that has its usual meanings if dealt any place other than the first card of a spread containing a minimum of 3 cards. If it is the first card in the spread, or the first card turned face up if the spread is dealt face down, then the reading is to be brought to an immediate halt and all fees refunded (if any). My card of choice is the 7 of Pentacles. Continue reading Dear Noxporium: Stop Card

7 of Pentacles

A man assumed to be the farmer of the field he stands in is holding his hoe with the spade against the ground. Standing wide-footed, he lays both hands on the upright end and looks over them at a tall bush to the viewer’s left. Six large pentacles are placed on the vined and broadleaved bush, as if they are the fruit produced by this plant. A seventh pentacle lays on the ground between his feet, as if an errant fruit from a running vine.
