It would be tempting to dismiss what happened as a consequence of the calendar, but turning your face away will only make things worse. Confront the reality of the situation, painful as it may be, and focus your will on making this better for yourself one way or the other. It will mean foregoing making everyone else happy, but when you think about it, isn’t the process of making everyone else happy that got you in this trouble in the first place?

Bryan Lahr’s Wyzard of Odd tarot deck is a work of art featuring carefully crafted images of literal smoke and mirrors. The deck is based on the Thoth and the margins are lined with correspondences from various esoteric practices. The slightly oversize deck works well for contemplation as the images fold onto themselves and unfolds upon the viewer. In following with the tradition set by the Thoth deck, Wyzard Princes are equivalent to Waite’s Knights, and Wyzard Knights are equivalent to Waite’s Kings.
