When it comes to you, it will be via a process you did not expect and you will judge unduly harshly at first. When you receive it, you will suspect it to be bait for a worse condition and question the impetus behind it. Stop. The hand that sent it to you is not the cleanest, for sure, but how you receive the gift matters more than who sent it to you and why. Whatever sin they are trying to atone for is their matter to consider. What are you going to do with the gift now that it is yours?


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.
