Today’s cards: Rebirth – XX (reversed), 5 of Coins (reversed), & The Sun – XIX (reversed).

The backstepping you are taking today will appear to be a reversal of progress to everyone that doesn’t know what you are going through. Don’t bother to correct them. Finding out that what you thought was a way out was only digging the hole deeper always hurts. But now that you know, you can correct the matter and resume your exit without being inspected each step of the way.


The Sweeney Tarot was designed to read with reversals. Having the expected 78 cards, one could use any system of meanings with it. However creator and artist Lee Bradford has put deep thought into the meanings of the Sweeney Tarot, making sure it is approachable by all and without occult or religious concerns that would restrict its audience or use.

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.
