Today’s cards: The Hanged Man – XII, Ace of Cups, & Eight of Cups.

It would be so easy to just stay where they put you and let them make all the decisions. So easy to just do what you were told, even if you were told to do nothing at all. So easy to ignore the instinct crawling under your skin that is telling you that the easy thing to do is the wrong thing to do. That the right thing to do is to save yourself. That the right thing to do is to get mad, to get emotional, to get aroused at the thought of living your life for yourself. It would be so easy to remain where they put you until all worth has been extracted from you. After all, living your life on your terms is very hard. For them. How about you do something for yourself today and leave them behind where they should have been all this time.


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.
