What Does The Deck Say? February 21, 2023

Today’s cards: Four of Blades, Two of Gourds, & Young Gourd.

Regardless of why you’re sitting in time out, it remains that you’re sitting in time out. And how you deal with this moment of isolation will be more important than the first actions you take once you are released back into the wild. So put the time to good use by resting and being at rest. At rest with yourself, at rest with your circumstances, at rest with the limits you are bound by, temporary or not. How you carry yourself in private will be evident the moment you are back in the public eye. Make your report a peaceful one.


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. The Dust II Onyx, A Melanated Tarot Deck, is ┬ęCourtney Alexander.

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.
