Sometimes you have to take a step back before you can move forward again. Sometimes it hurts to much to sit with what happened even though everyone else is willing to sit with you. Sometimes you have to sit down, breathe, and be in the now before you can deal with the past and how it will affect the future. Just keep in mind that you can only pause dealing with this matter for so long. You are going to have to face it eventually.


The Universal Waite is Mary Hanson-Roberts’s recolored rendition of the Waite-Smith deck. Nearly identical lining is softened by gentle coloring. Some faces have been reworked to be more pleasing to the eye. The Universal Waite Tarot is ©US Games Systems, Inc.

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.
