Today’s cards: A Red Hand holding a Glass with Green Swirling Liquid against a Blue background, A Glass with Blue Liquid against a Red Background with a Yellow Feather falling into it, and a Glass with Yellow Liquid containing a Blue Key against a Green Background.

Transforming this poison into medicine will take more than measured additives and ritualized procedures. It will take careful examination of why those additives are important to you and what your expectation of those procedures are. Doing things for the rote of it only works when you know and understand the reasoning behind them. Doing it because that’s what everyone expects you to do is drinking water and hoping it will taste different this time.

The Motif Deck is a unique cartomancy system designed and painted by Lee Bradford where the images have no inherent meaning, and so it’s up to the reader to assign significance. The cards consist of seven objects interacting with each other: hand, candle, rose, feather, key, string, and cup. Each image consists of one or two of these items on a plain colored background. These images were designed to be meaningless- they are just objects. What gives them meaning is the combination of color, frequency, placement, and interpretation from the querent and the reader.

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.
