It is bad enough that your efforts are not being recognized, did they have to go so far as to ruin any solace you could have gained for yourself? It will be very tempting to throw your self-respect into the same gutter that they threw your work and go for their throat, but today is only today and even they can only do so much. Now that you know them for what they are, pull back your offerings and do only what you need to do to get through today. Tomorrow, you can salve the wounds on your heart and on your hands. Tomorrow, you can start again for yourself. Today, you just need to come through.

The Universal Waite is Mary Hanson-Roberts’s recolored rendition of the Waite-Smith deck. Nearly identical lining is softened by gentle coloring. Some faces have been reworked to be more pleasing to the eye. The Universal Waite Tarot is ©US Games Systems, Inc.

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.
