You want the happy ever after that you have been promised from as long as you understood what a promise was. You still haven’t realized that there is the responsibility of a new beginning that will come when this story ends. It is being withheld from you for a reason: Namely, that you have not done the work to understand what it is you are asking for. Once you do, once you realize that the ending is really a beginning, once you are willing to take on the responsibility of moving past the ending you have been hoping for, then you will be granted the ability to end what is happening now, and begin the next step of your journey in life.


The Universal Tarot of Marseille is primarily based on a Swiss deck created in 1751 by by Claude Burdel. The pips have color backgrounds to assist readers with distinguishing suite and the majors have had the lines refined and color backgrounds added to soften the overall look.

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.
