What Does The Deck Say? August 07 2016

One of many Baraja Española decks, The Baraja Azteca 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 (Coins), 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: 9 Copas.

In the set of meanings I use for the Baraja Española, 9 Copas (lit: 9 Cups) signifies “Mystery” and “The Unknowable”. Because of this, I have designated it to be the Stop Card for this particular playing card deck. As it is the first card on the table of a three card spread, I am going to take my own advice, put the cards up for the day, and go make the best of how the day unfolds.
