Today’s cards: 5 Espadas, 2 Copas, & 6 Copas.

“Take it or leave it,” is often thrown in your face as justification to force you to take it regardless of your thoughts on the matter. Regardless of their posturing, you still have a decision to make. Do not believe them when they say your contribution is irrelevant. If it wasn’t, they wouldn’t be trying to hard to force you to comply. Do not permit your emotions to smother the hard reasoning you will need to see through their deception. The truth will be painful but giving up will hurt more.


A Baraja EspaƱola deck, 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 divination tool. Each reader uses their own personal understanding and intuition to interpret the cards.

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.
