Today’s cards: Queen of Wands, Ace of Swords, & Queen of Cups.

The day will be marked by a lack of stability, so do your best not to get involved in the public pissing match between those two “strong-minded” people. Each one will claim to be absolutely in the right and therefore deserving of lording over the other one, but the truth of it is that this is a minor issue. “Winning” this challenge will not involve proof of strength, but proof of restraint.


The Universal Waite is Mary Hanson-Roberts’s recolored rendition of the Waite-Smith deck. Nearly identical lining is softened by gentle coloring. Some faces have been reworked to be more pleasing to the eye. The Universal Waite Tarot is ©US Games Systems, Inc.

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.
