Today’s cards: Four of Cups, Six of Disks, & Prince of Swords.

Regardless if pleasurable, painful, or both, you’re done with it. Whatever gain you had made from tolerating it before has dissipated and there is only a sticky sensation remaining. Be careful. You will be tempted to make a bigger mess of the matter trying to distance yourself from it. Hold that impulse and take care of things one step at a time unless you want to be placed right back at the beginning to start over again.


Bryan Lahr’s Wyzard of Odd tarot deck is a work of art featuring carefully crafted images of literal smoke and mirrors. The deck is based on the Thoth and the margins are lined with correspondences from various esoteric practices. The slightly oversize deck works well for contemplation as the images fold onto themselves and unfolds upon the viewer. In following with the tradition set by the Thoth deck, Wyzard Princes are equivalent to Waite’s Knights, and Wyzard Knights are equivalent to Waite’s Kings.

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.
