It may not have been your doing that put you in the middle of this mess, but you have more control than you think regarding how long you stay here. Getting out of the tar pit will mean leaving behind many things that you had made tokens of yourself and it will feel like you are cutting off an arm and a leg to do it. Do it anyway. Those that benefit from you remaining in place will do everything to help you stay there, even if it means watching you destroy yourself. If something is going to break, let it be the chains that are keeping you from moving on. So that when you do escape, you leave behind the burdens that were never yours to bear in the first place.


Cosma Visions Oracle is a 78-card oracle deck that explores the idea of reconnecting with past lives. Structured similarly to a tarot deck, the major arcana takes the reader through the passage between death and rebirth while the minor arcana attempts to grapple with life on earth.

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.
