Today’s cards: Queen of Disks, Five of Disks, & Two of Swords.

For all that you prepared for yesterday, it still went to shit, and here you are today with the aftermath shattered at your feet. This is not the time to be mired in despair. Clingy as it may be, this is the time to show yourself as the adult in the room and take care of business. Restoring your peace may mean sitting with the person that broke everything, it may mean walking away from them once and for all. But regardless of how you restore peace to yourself, do it on your terms so that despite what happened yesterday, you can sleep well tonight.


Bryan Lahr’s Wyzard of Odd tarot deck is a work of art featuring carefully crafted images of literal smoke and mirrors. The deck is based on the Thoth and the margins are lined with correspondences from various esoteric practices. The slightly oversize deck works well for contemplation as the images fold onto themselves and unfolds upon the viewer. In following with the tradition set by the Thoth deck, Wyzard Princes are equivalent to Waite’s Knights, and Wyzard Knights are equivalent to Waite’s Kings.

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.
