Here you are, nice and cozy between the irresistible force and the unmovable object. The logical response is to stop struggling and just accept the circumstances as is. Yea, right. It is time for a game of What If. It is time to try your luck even though the odds are firmly set against you. It is time to see if you can pull off that one sick trick that will cause these obstacles to roll away onto someone else’s feet. You already know what will happen if you fail as it is the same cost as if you do nothing. Are you ready to find out what will happen if you succeed?


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.
