Today’s cards: 4 of Cups, The Moon – XVIII, & The Tower – XVI.

You’re tired of the same old thing, so much so, that you’re too tired and defeated to do anything about it. Or at least, that’s the excuse you have been telling yourself. The truth of the matter is that there is something you can do about it, but it means facing the lies and illusions you have been comforting yourself with. Cut through them sooner than later, because they are disguising a terrible consequence that will be made all the worse for your apathy.


The Sweeney Tarot was designed to read with reversals. Having the expected 78 cards, one could use any system of meanings with it. However creator and artist Lee Bradford has put deep thought into the meanings of the Sweeney Tarot, making sure it is approachable by all and without occult or religious concerns that would restrict its audience or use.

What Does The Deck Say” is a weekday series of 3 card pulls from a cartomancy deck. No context or query is given to frame what the cards say as the posts are reading samples and not personal instruction. The result is sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, and usually surprising. All readers are invited to leave a comment about what they perceive in the random spread as each person will interact with the cards in their own way.

Personalized, direct, and private cartomancy readings are available via Ko-Fi: Noxporium.
