The problem with being very good at what you do is that it becomes quite impossible to do anything else. You become known as That Person That Can Do That Thing and the very skills you honed to free you becomes the bars that constrain you. Very well, then, let them lead. Permit your skills and your art to lead you to a different path that will take you away from other people’s expectations and towards something new that will renew and fulfill you. Don’t fight yourself, be yourself.


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.
