What Does The Deck Say? April 12 2015

One of many Baraja Española type 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 (Gold), Bastos (Clubs), Espadas (Swords), and Copas (Cups). While the deck is made primarily for play, it functions well as a divinatory tool. Each reader uses their own personal understanding and intuition to interpret the cards.

Today’s cards: 12 Espadas, 11 Copas, & 5 Espadas.

You have been groomed for a certain position in life, and you are going to be very good at the role assigned to you. But the mantle of that position weighs far too heavy on you, and you would find fulfillment doing something entirely different (and entirely disapproved). Here then is your challenge. Can you be both? Are you willing to walk away from the life (and possibly family) that you knew for the chance of becoming who you feel you are? You have to decide how much of your future are you going to allow others to shape for their motives, and how much are you going to seize for yourself.
