The good news is that there is a neat and clean solution to that problem that’s been keeping you up at night. The bad news is putting that neat and clean solution to use will make a terrible mess of everything else as what appears to be a simple problem has complex sources and interactions within it. Sit back instead, and take a hard look at what you think you want to accomplish and what you are capable of accomplishing right now without having to call in any favors. Do the latter instead of chasing the former so you can keep yourself out of harm’s way.


Tavaglione’s Stairs of Gold Tarot is a richly decorated esoteric book in the form of 78 tarot cards. Sometimes wildly diverging from Waite’s road, the deck can read as slim as necessary and as deep as the reader is willing to focus. Tavaglione’s Stairs of Gold Tarot is ©US Games Systems.

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.
