Today’s cards: The World – XXI, The Devil – XV, & 5 of Swords.

Nothing remains constant. What was perfectly under control yesterday is on the brink of breaking out all over the place today. But, unlike acne, you do have a say in how far to let yourself go. It will be a precarious balancing act, but with care you will be able to let go of those things that are beyond your ability to restrain while keeping a tight grip on those things that you are required to hold for yourself. When the day ends, don’t turn your back on what happened. Face the events squarely so you can not only learn from your mistakes, but acknowledge your successes.


The Fey Tarot is the work of Mara Aghem. While the card names mostly track conventional tarot naming, the scenes differ from Pamela Coleman Smith’s renditions. Not all minors display the full pip count of their number. Rather, the scenes are meant to evoke the intuition of the reader rather than depend on long lists of regurgitated meanings. The Fey Tarot is ©Lo Scarabeo.

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.
