You won’t be able to lessen the visibility of what happened. The harder you try to hide it, the more details are scattered in the public eye. Instead of attempting to control the damage to your reputation, control the damage itself. Use what happened to your advantage and defy the public expectations by not falling. What happened is very embarrassing, but you still have your foundations under you. Don’t abdicate them for the sake of a pity post. Show those who would see you crumble that blemishes are temporary but you still endure.


Tavaglione’s Stairs of Gold Tarot is a richly decorated esoteric book in the form of 78 tarot cards. Sometimes wildly diverging from Waite’s road, the deck can read as slim as necessary and as deep as the reader is willing to focus. Tavaglione’s Stairs of Gold Tarot is ©US Games Systems.

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.
