You took what was presented as a low risk opportunity and was rewarded deep pain for the effort. Now you are being asked to take another risk with a greater investment and you are well justified to refuse. But, before you do, take another look. Though it will hurt to replay the memory, take another look at what happened before. Why were you hurt? Who took advantage of your good faith actions? What did you leave to chance and what did you hold down? Now look at the opportunity that is being presented to you today. How can you take those lessons and apply that understanding to this new challenge? While it will be tempting to refuse the matter altogether and burrow back into comforting routines, you will run the greater risk of stagnating there and never moving on.

A luxurious white and gold deck of 80 hand painted and foil stamped cards that represents the stories, traditions, and heritages that humans create and pass forth in their journey to conquer the most eternal and timeless of enemies; the ephemerality and temporality of life. Inspired by odysseys and epics of old, the major arcana cards have been reimagined as a “hero’s journey” in place of the classic “fool’s journey”. The majority of the major arcana cards retain strong parallels to traditional Rider Waite-Smith counterparts, though a small number are completely new. Cards painted by Arthur Wang. Card meanings co-written by Arthur Wang and Mat Auryn. The Ephemere Tarot is ©TrueBlack, LLC.

What Does The Deck Say” is a weekday series of 3 card pulls from a cartomancy deck.
