You can’t protect other people from the consequences of their actions. Trying to do so will only lead to your sharing their comeuppance unnecessarily. Instead, focus on taking care of your own business and making sure that your business stays yours. Other people may have opinions about how you are going about that business, but those opinions are optional and should not be the driver of your actions.


This deck of 78 small tarot cards illustrated by Julie Paschkis and published by Running Press is part of a modest and portable set titled “Tarot: The Complete Kit”. The palm size cards feature vignettes that summarize individual card meanings yet also offer points for inspiration for other interpretations.. The Running Press Tarot is ©Running Press.

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.
