You know what to do. You know how to lead others and how to show the way through this trouble. All you have to do is start. All they have to do is follow. Stop. You have no idea what you’re about to get yourself into. Your assumption that this time is just like all the others will lead you to overlooking all the ways that this time is not. Go back and reevaluate the matter, but confront it as if this is the first time you have ever done so. You will lose the adoration of the crowd, but if that is what it takes to keep your integrity, you will lose nothing.

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.
