To say that it didn’t go to plan is to say that water is a wee bit damp. The consequences have been fixed and there is no recourse but to suffer through them. But do no suffer them passively. There is still opportunity to place yourself in a better position but it will require tact, empathy, and humility to do so. Do not mock those who have heaver consequences to bear lest they alleviate their pain by making it yours.


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.
