Today’s cards: The Moon – XVIII, Ace of Coins, & Temptation – XV.

You already knew you were telling yourself a story, but today you will see the kernel of truth in the core of it. You will be tempted to discard the truth with the wrapping it came in, but doing so will only lead to repeating the lesson. Accept the truth, sharp and bitter as it is, so you can create a better enclosure for yourself later.


The Dust II Onyx tarot deck is Courtney Alexander’s homage to her Black heritage and to the Black matriarchs and leaders of her communities. The deck is also a love offering to the LGBTQIA+ community and is presented as a tool for every person within the African diaspora to feel a connection to without prejudice.

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.
