Go try something new, they said. It would be fun, they said. Just another game, they said. What is fun to them is terrifying to you and it’s not just the novelty of it. No one knows what you came through but you and how afraid you are of being trapped back in it. Come forward, anyway. The only way you are going to make it through is by studying the matter until you know it completely. By then, you will be using it to your advantage, not theirs.


The Fey Tarot is the work of Mara Aghem. While the card names mostly track conventional tarot naming, the scenes differ from Pamela Coleman Smith’s renditions. Not all minors display the full pip count of their number. Rather, the scenes are meant to evoke the intuition of the reader rather than depend on long lists of regurgitated meanings. The Fey Tarot is ©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.
