Today’s cards: Hermit – IX, Seven of Pentacles, & Judgment – XX.

All that hard work you did by yourself, for yourself, has paid off and you have achieved your goal. Your next task is to stop. Take a bit. Look back on what you have done and judge if it was worth the trouble. Look forward at what you think remains to be done and judge if it is actually worth pursuing. Look down at where you are and find something comforting to take with you when you go. But the going is for tomorrow, today, take a seat in the peace you have created for yourself.

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.
