They tell you that you don’t know what you’re doing, that your way is too simple and naive, that you should stop being so frustratingly independent and let them direct your path for you. They are telling you this because being obedient to them makes you easier for them to live with. But, as you already know, it will make your life harder for you to live with. However, there is some truth and value to what they say so don’t reject it all outright. Take the time to consider their advice and apply what is good for you while politely declining to put yourself back under their thumb.

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.
