Do whatever you have to do to come through, but come through. Those in better circumstances will judge you for your temerity to survive. Don’t permit their ignorance to push you back into what you escaped from. Do permit the same determination that brought you this far to continue enabling you to seek something better for yourself. When you do, you do not have to drag those who tried to step on you with you. Set the table with the fruits of your labor and eat well.


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.
