After all that has happened, it is no surprise to you that you are overwhelmed to the point of distress. So it is also no surprise to you that you are effectively on your own to deal with this. Again. However, you have more resources available than you are able to see, you just have to ask for them. Don’t ask with the expectation of being turned away. Ask for them as if you were asking for a friend, and with the confidence that your “friend” will receive what they need. Because in times like these, there is no better friend than yourself.


This deck of 78 small tarot cards illustrated by Julie Paschkis and published by Running Press is part of a modest and portable set titled “Tarot: The Complete Kit”.

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.
