Today’s cards: 6 of Chalices, Knight of Wands, & Death – XIII.

Good game you got there. Not judging you, just noting what is in plain sight for those who want to see. The skill of nudging others into agreeing with you is neither a boon nor a curse, is neither divine nor nefarious. It is merely a tool that is subtly wielded. However, like all tools, it can be relied upon too much. Remember why you are using this tool and what your end goal is. Forgetting either will leave you stranded when the tool inevitably fails and you have to get by using only the raw merits, and the raw reputation, you have accumulated.


The Bosch Tarot is a series of collages based on the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch. Using a unique set of meanings that doesn’t always aligns with Waite, it will sometimes read direct, and sometimes read like a koan. It is a good deck for introspection and examination of internal motives. The Bosch Tarot is presented by Atanas A. Atanassov and ©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.
