Today’s cards: Knight of Staves, 8 of Staves, & 6 of Coins.

You have been ambivalent about taking that leave of absence for some time. So busy waiting for the right time to appear that you don’t realize that the right time has always been right now. The matter is about to be forced and when the question is posed to you, think only about what is the best thing for you to do for yourself. If that means you walk away for a while, well, they should have taken the opportunity to learn how to fend for themselves while you were offering it because it is not your duty to rescue them from their ineptitudes.


Tavaglione’s Stairs of Gold Tarot is a richly decorated esoteric book in the form of 78 tarot cards. Sometimes wildly diverging from Waite’s road, the deck can read as slim as necessary and as deep as the reader is willing to focus. Tavaglione’s Stairs of Gold Tarot is ©US Games Systems.

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.
