Interior work this, shadow work that, all these calls for you to inspect yourself and the only thing you know for sure is that you’re sick of it. How many times can you gaze into the mirror or try to catch a reflection of insight in your cup? No more, you say? Okay. Stop trying to think your way through. Start working your way through instead. Pick up that hobby you put down because you felt it wasn’t “serious” enough. Get silly again. Have fun. Yes, you might catch an understanding about yourself and what you’re going through, but you might also have a bit of joy along the way, and that’s a worthy risk to take.


The Fey Tarot is the work of Mara Aghem. While the card names mostly track conventional tarot naming, the scenes differ from Pamela Coleman Smith’s renditions. Not all minors display the full pip count of their number. Rather, the scenes are meant to evoke the intuition of the reader rather than depend on long lists of regurgitated meanings.

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.
