In this pause between cycles, breathe. You have told yourself that you are going to get it right, this time. You are sure that you have learned from all your mistakes and there won’t be any, this time. But as the new cycle begins, it is imperative that you remember that you are still under the same obligations that pressed you into service here. Before you can change the outcome, you have to change what feeds it, and that was set before you ever approached the wheel. It’s not too late to walk away.


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.
