No time to explain, only time to act. When you realize what is wrong about the situation, taking the time to sway the bystanders to your side will take up time that you won’t get back. Instead, move with the grace that your understanding gives you and take up a defensible position from which you can explain yourself later. Be prepared for others to complain that you are moving against expectations and the status quo. But if that is what it takes to do the right thing, then do the right thing and be proven correct in time.


TrueBlack is the brainchild of Arthur Wang, designer and illustrator. All 22 Major Arcana cards feature an individual and distinctive additional gloss design, specifically illustrated to complement the card, which is difficult to capture in an image but a delight to view in person. All designs, illustrations, logistics, photography, and production is handled by Arthur. The TrueBlack Tarot is ©TrueBlack, LLC.

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.
