Today’s cards: Ace of Staffs, The Sun – XIX, & Seven of Staffs.

If you do nothing, then nothing will change. But what if you don’t know what to do? Then do anything. The only way you will be able to break the cycle is by doing something that the cycle cannot bend into form. Even choosing a different place to sit can be the spark placing the fire of change into the field.


The Dust II Onyx tarot deck is Courtney Alexander’s homage to her Black heritage and to the Black matriarchs and leaders of her communities. The deck is also a love offering to the LGBTQIA+ community and is presented as a tool for every person within the African diaspora to feel a connection to without prejudice.

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.
