It’s not happening under anyone’s noses, it’s happening in plain and open sight. But the person most affected is too busy paying attention to the entertainment to notice. If you step up and get their attention, you might be able to alert them before they lose too much, but then you risk being blamed for the situation happening in the first place even though they are the ones who chose to look away. Sometimes the right thing is allowing other people to experience the consequences of their actions.


The Universal Tarot of Marseille is primarily based on a Swiss deck created in 1751 by by Claude Burdel. The pips have color backgrounds to assist readers with distinguishing suite and the majors have had the lines refined and color backgrounds added to soften the overall look.

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.
