Today’s cards: King of Cups, Strength – VIII, & Knight of Cups.

The same steadfastness that makes you a valued ally to those you care for makes you a bright target to those who care nothing for you. But holding the line means more to you than being held in high esteem. Make sure you are standing on the right line for the right reasons. Don’t permit the mythological ideal distract you from the physical reality. Make sure the line you are standing on is the layout for a better tomorrow and not the tripline of a ensnaring trap.

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.
