Today’s cards: Queen of Pentacles, Crescendo, & Counterpoint (M/M).

Whether you have a little or a lot, what you have, you have it well. Today is a good day to sit down and consider not only how you got it, but what you plan on doing with it. Consider carefully how the latter is shaped by the former. Before you know it, tomorrow will become yesterday, and your immediate plans will determine the boundaries of your long-term goals. Be good to your future self and plan not only for the joy of today but for the sustainability of tomorrow.


A luxurious white and gold deck of 80 hand painted and foil stamped cards that represents the stories, traditions, and heritages that humans create and pass forth in their journey to conquer the most eternal and timeless of enemies; the ephemerality and temporality of life. Inspired by odysseys and epics of old, the major arcana cards have been reimagined as a “hero’s journey” in place of the classic “fool’s journey”. The majority of the major arcana cards retain strong parallels to traditional Rider Waite-Smith counterparts, though a small number are completely new. Cards painted by Arthur Wang. Card meanings co-written by Arthur Wang and Mat Auryn. The Ephemere Tarot is ©TrueBlack, LLC.

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.
