The Old Guard yells at the cliff to stop crumbling out from under them and demands that you stand still in homage to the way things have always been done. You see clearly the signs that this is the beginning of a Big Change™ and that standing still is the last thing that should be done. You have a choice to make: Do you preserve their pride to the very end? Or do you move to preserve yourself as the world changes around you? Choose well.


The Universal Waite is Mary Hanson-Roberts’s recolored rendition of the Waite-Smith deck. Nearly identical lining is softened by gentle coloring. Some faces have been reworked to be more pleasing to the eye. The Universal Waite Tarot is ©US Games Systems, Inc.

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.
