What Does The Deck Say? January 25, 2022

Today’s cards: 10 Bastos, 8 Copas, & 7 Copas.

So it sucks right now. And it looks like it’s going to suck for quite a while longer. Making lemonade out of lemons makes sense if things were going to return to the way they were, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen this time. Find new ways to experience joy. Find new ways to share that joy with others. Those who decry you for finding a new way to survive in new times can be left in the fading pages of history. Make your joy and let it be a beacon forward.


A Baraja EspaƱola deck, the Baraja Azteca 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 (Coins), Bastos (Clubs), Espadas (Swords), and Copas (Cups). While the deck is made primarily for play, it functions well as a divination tool. Each reader uses their own personal understanding and intuition to interpret the cards.

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.
