Today’s cards: Ace of Wands, Death – XIII (reversed), & 7 of Cups.

Before you get started, remind yourself that you are only delaying the inevitable, that you are only buying yourself some time to take care of matters before things get locked into place. Having said that, try not to giggle too loud as you go forth and get away with the shenanigan of the day. But for all the fun and all the importance of what you are doing, keep in mind that none of this is going to last, but the consequences will keep on long after you have forgotten what started them.


The Sweeney Tarot was designed to read with reversals. Having the expected 78 cards, one could use any system of meanings with it. However creator and artist Lee Bradford has put deep thought into the meanings of the Sweeney Tarot, making sure it is approachable by all and without occult or religious concerns that would restrict its audience or use.

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.
