What Does The Deck Say? May 10, 2023

Baraja Azteca – 12 Bastos, 11 Copas, & 4 Copas.

Today’s cards: 12 Bastos, 11 Copas, & 4 Copas.

You want to believe them. You want to just take what they say at face value when they say they value you. You want to give them everything they are asking for because it makes them happy and making them happy makes you happy. You really want to. But your instinct is screaming at you to stand still and review the relationship in light of everything you have experienced thus far. The hardest question you will have to ask yourself is not if you love them, but if you are so in love with the ideal of them that you are willing to spend everything you have chasing that dream regardless of the reality. And that is something you will have to answer only to yourself for.


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.
