You showed up and took what you wanted to take. Grats. Have you considered that what you gained can be lost with the same swiftness? Working alone may get you to the top of the hill, but if you are going to keep your position, you are going to need some help. Put your pride in the bucket so you can give and receive help. Those you partner with can assist you in ways you have yet to realize.


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.
