What Does The Deck Say? March 29, 2023

Baraja Azteca: 3 Copas, 8 Copas, & 5 Bastos.

Today’s cards: 3 Copas, 8 Copas, & 5 Bastos.

You knew it was going to be rough. Today, you’ll get some warning of just how rough it is going to be. But the news won’t be all bad. It will just feel like it. Because if you pay attention, in the middle of all the reasons why you should just lie down and quit now is the very means by which you will come through better than how you started. But it means paying very close attention to what you do not want to hear and dissecting it to find the still viable seed of understanding.


A Baraja Española deck, the Baraja Azteca is a 48 card deck of playing cards used for such games as Brisca, Tute, and Mus. This 48-card variant of the deck contains four suits; Oros (Coins), Bastos (Clubs), Espadas (Swords), and Copas (Cups). While the deck is made primarily for play, it functions well as a divination tool. Each reader uses their own personal understanding and intuition to interpret the cards.

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.
