It’s not as bad as it feels but when things are feeling this bad, that’s bad enough. Examine what burdens you, not from the viewpoint that others are telling you to see, but from how it is actually affecting you. This burden can be thrown off and broken into manageable pieces, but you will have to do the hard work of standing up for yourself and refusing to bear other people’s burdens any more. Choosing yourself over others will feel more painful than the burdens they forces on you, at first. But as you start to walk free, the walking gets easier.


The Legacy of the Divine is a tarot deck designed by Ciro Marchetti. Warm images tell a fantastic story across rural, urban, and fantasy settings. A visually inviting deck, it has hints of esotericism for those that are seeking such things, but those hints do not interfere with those that do not.

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.
