What Does The Deck Say? January 25 2015

One of many Baraja Española type decks, The “Baraja Azteca – As de Oro” is a 48 card deck of playing cards used for such games as Brisca, Tute, and Mus. This 48-card variant of the deck contains four suits; Oros (Gold), Bastos (Clubs), Espadas (Swords), and Copas (Cups). While the deck is made primarily for play, it functions well as a divinatory tool. Each reader uses their own personal understanding and intuition to interpret the cards.

Today’s cards: 8 Oros, 11 Oros, 12 Espadas.

“Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” Right? Most people who actually work for a living know how that phrase is used to put them down and demean them on a daily basis. Truth is, homilies such as those are used to justify discrimination and abuses. After all, “If you wanted it bad enough, you would have gotten it.” You don’t need any false advisers in your life. Set yourself up as Dictator Of Self For Life and make your own happiness from what you have at hand. It might not be as pretty as the photoshopped cover of America’s 1% (Tagline: We don’t care what you think.), but it is yours. And that’s all that matters.
