What Does The Deck Say? May 2, 2022

Today’s cards: The Tower – XVI, Ace of Swords, & The Empress – III (reversed).

The week starts off as weeks often do: With the revelation that the thing you had viewed as secure and stable is in absolute ruins and now it’s your job to clean up the mess. Ah, Mondays. The good news is that you have the tools to begin that process by cutting away the core of the rot and revealing what is still usable. The bad news is that the very person who ruled over the project is the cause of the decay and will make it very hard for you to do your job. Do it anyway and document as you go.


The Legacy of the Divine is a work of art by Ciro Marchetti. Warm images tell a fantastic story across rural, urban, and fantasy settings. A visually inviting deck, it has hints of esotericism for those that are seeking such things, but those hints do not interfere with those that do not. The Legacy of the Divine is ©Llewellyn Worldwide.

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.
