Today’s cards: Queen of Swords, 8 of Cups, & The World – XXI (reversed).

When you’re dealing with a pain so deep, that it removes the taste of food and the joy of being, it is very tempting to say there is nothing left to be for. This will not make sense to you today, so hold it for tomorrow: You have never been more ‘you’ than you are right now. Remember why you started, why you came through, why this loss is carving you out from the inside. Remember, honor that memory, and hold it so when you get back up (and you will), that you carry yourself forward into the day after tomorrow.

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.
