You have come this way before, but it doesn’t look anything like how you remember it. You have never been here before, but your life experiences have prepared you for today and you don’t realize it yet. Don’t be in a rush to prove yourself to those around you. Pace yourself and always keep a little something in reserve. When you realize what is it about today that you always knew, you will be glad you kept enough of yourself back to come through to tomorrow.


The Universal Tarot of Marseille is primarily based on a Swiss deck created in 1751 by by Claude Burdel. The pips have color backgrounds to assist readers with distinguishing suite and the majors have had the lines refined and color backgrounds added to soften the overall look. The Universal Tarot of Marseille is ©Lo Scarabeo.

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.
