The problem with trying to prepare for every conceivable outcome is that you wind up preparing for every worst possible outcome, regardless of just how possible it could actually happen. So, while you are winding yourself into nearly permanent knots, here’s a threat you should prepare for: Succeeding. You are better at this than you give yourself credit for and once you get out of your own way, you’ll see why and how.


The RM (Red Magician) Tarot is a limited edition deck created by artist Jay LeRoy. Being that it was originally meant to be the artist’s personal tarot, the artwork is a collage-based, subconsciously-driven interpretation of Hermetic and universal symbolism. The Red Magician Tarot is ©Jay LeRoy.

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.
