Today’s cards: Seven of Blades, Mama Gourd, & Seven of Gourds.

It is a dangerous game you are playing, even though it is one you thought you have mastered. Coaxing your target into giving you what you want is one thing, getting away with it without deleterious consequences is another. Eventually, you are going to be found out. Your motives will matter very little if you have left unnecessary destruction in your wake. Take care that your little game doesn’t become something neither little nor inconsequential.


The Dust II Onyx tarot deck is Courtney Alexander’s homage to her Black heritage and to the Black matriarchs and leaders of her communities. The deck is also a love offering to the LGBTQIA+ community and is presented as a tool for every person within the African diaspora to feel a connection to without prejudice.

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.
