Not only do you know what you want, you are so sure that you’re going to get what you want that you don’t think about the consequences of following through. This time, it’s not the target of your desire that will land you in hot water, but the methods you use to obtain it. If you are lucky, you will only destroy the very thing that you want. But you are rarely that lucky, and the unintended consequences of blindly chasing that thing is going to push other more beneficial targets far away from your reach. How about you take the day to sit still and appreciate what you already have instead?


Tavaglione’s Stairs of Gold Tarot is a richly decorated esoteric book in the form of 78 tarot cards. Sometimes wildly diverging from Waite’s road, the deck can read as slim as necessary and as deep as the reader is willing to focus. Tavaglione’s Stairs of Gold Tarot is ©US Games Systems.

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.
