What do you do when everything is (un)done? When everything just… stops? First, you look around and see that everything hasn’t stopped, just that thing you care more about than yourself. Examine yourself and see you are still breathing, your heart is still pumping, that you are still here, and that as long as you are still here, you can do something. The hard part is finding what is that something that you can do right now. Here then is a start: Take another breath. Feel what remains with you. Then go with it into tomorrow.


The RM (Red Magician) Tarot is a limited edition deck created by artist Jay LeRoy. Being that it was originally meant to be the artist’s personal tarot, the artwork is a collage-based, subconsciously-driven interpretation of Hermetic and universal symbolism. The Red Magician Tarot is ©Jay LeRoy.

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.
