What Does The Deck Say? February 14, 2024

Baraja Azteca: 8 Bastos, 2 Espadas, & 3 Oros.

Today’s cards: 8 Bastos, 2 Espadas, & 3 Oros.

The knowledge of the thing has always been in front of you, but you won’t understand the wisdom of it until you stop taking what you think you know for granted. Sit still and rotate the matter in your mind, letting go of everything you have been taught about the thing and everything you have assumed as a result of that knowledge. The realization will take you by surprise and you may even feel embarrassed for not seeing it in this way before. Get over your embarrassment quickly, because this is only the beginning of everything else.

A Baraja Española deck, the Baraja Azteca is a 48 card deck of playing cards used for such games as Brisca, Tute, and Mus. This 48-card variant of the deck contains four suits; Oros (Coins), Bastos (Clubs), Espadas (Swords), and Copas (Cups). While the deck is made primarily for play, it functions well as a divination tool. Each reader uses their own personal understanding and intuition to interpret the cards.

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.
