What Does The Deck Say? December 19, 2022

Today’s cards: Two of Wands, Four of Cups, & The Hermit – IX.

You’re determined as hell but you’re also tired as hell. It feels like an endless loop of failed attempts that would make Sisyphus have pity on you. Break the loop by stop trying so damn hard. Hold still and examine what you have been doing and why. The premise you have been building your reasoning upon is flawed. Create a better start for yourself and try a different way.


Bryan Lahr’s Wyzard of Odd tarot deck is a work of art featuring carefully crafted images of literal smoke and mirrors. The deck is based on the Thoth and the margins are lined with correspondences from various esoteric practices. The slightly oversize deck works well for contemplation as the images fold onto themselves and unfolds upon the viewer. In following with the tradition set by the Thoth deck, Wyzard Princes are equivalent to Waite’s Knights, and Wyzard Knights are equivalent to Waite’s Kings.

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.
