Today’s cards: Knight of Wands, Queen of Disks, & The Fool – 0.

You can’t avoid being part of the situation. You can choose what part you are going to play in the drama. Will you be the person that knows with complete certainty that they are in the right no matter what? Or will you be the person who tries to enact a mutually acceptable solution even if the others aren’t ready to accept it yet? Or will you go off and do your own thing, which was the right thing to do from the start, but everyone else is too busy in their egos to realize it yet? No matter what you choose, someone is going to be upset with your decision, and sometimes that upset person will be you. What matters is doing the right thing as soon as possible as that is what will bring this drama to its end.


Bryan Lahr’s Wyzard of Odd tarot deck is a work of art featuring carefully crafted images of literal smoke and mirrors. The deck is based on the Thoth and the margins are lined with correspondences from various esoteric practices. The slightly oversize deck works well for contemplation as the images fold onto themselves and unfolds upon the viewer. In following with the tradition set by the Thoth deck, Wyzard Princes are equivalent to Waite’s Knights, and Wyzard Knights are equivalent to Waite’s Kings.

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.
