Baraja Azteca: 12 Oros, 6 Oros, & 4 Bastos.

Today’s cards: 12 Oros, 6 Oros, & 4 Bastos.

You knew this could come and even took steps to prepare for its arrival and departure. And yet, with it now looming before you, you find yourself afeared to the risk of being completely undone. Remember why you started on this endeavor and the goal that is still yet to be within sight. If you turn away now, then you will surrender not only the day, but what you set out for in the first place. Hold your ground and remember your preparations. For all the bluster of the storm ahead, it too, has an end that is chasing it. Adjust your works as necessary and keep going.


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.
