You’re not ready. Yea, sure, you could get up and do the beginning part of the thing, but you do not have the resources available to follow through and complete it in one shot. And trying to prove yourself will only result in the project taking longer than planned for with an increase in spending as well. Stay seated. Finish your preparations. You want to prove yourself to the project lead? Show you are willing to follow instructions as given by doing just that.


The Dust II Onyx tarot deck is Courtney Alexander’s homage to her Black heritage and to the Black matriarchs and leaders of her communities. The deck is also a love offering to the LGBTQIA+ community and is presented as a tool for every person within the African diaspora to feel a connection to without prejudice.

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.
