How bad do you want it? Bad enough to ignore the byproducts of your actions as long as it means you get what you wanted? Bad enough to consider the consequences of your actions? Bad enough that you are willing to sit down, work out possible plans for achieving what you want, and diligently work through what you have to do to get the thing? Or are you going to sit down and loudly wish for someone to bring it to you? Some of these ideas will work for you, some won’t, and it remains up to you to find out why.


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.
