Be it a working day or a personal day, it’s a take it slow day. You may feel that this is the day to put all your new year plans into action and mark off as many resolutions as you can. No, today is the day to take things one step at a time and to do those things that make you feel yourself the most. You can always start that new initiative some other day. Today is for making sure that whatever you are doing, it is for placing and keeping you at ease.


The Sweeney Tarot was designed to read with reversals. Having the expected 78 cards, one could use any system of meanings with it. However creator and artist Lee Bradford has put deep thought into the meanings of the Sweeney Tarot, making sure it is approachable by all and without occult or religious concerns that would restrict its audience or use.

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.
