It’s all fun and games until the consequences arrive. it will be tempting to revel in the excitement of what happened, what is happening, and what people think is going to happen later, but hold yourself back. You don’t know everything, yet. When the other shoe drops you are going to have to consider if it is worth putting the soggy thing back on or if it’s better to walk on with the comfort of dry feet. Don’t let other people make this decision for you to save their face. It’s your path.


A Baraja Española deck, the Baraja Azteca is a 48 card deck of playing cards used for such games as Brisca, Tute, and Mus. This 48-card variant of the deck contains four suits; Oros (Coins), Bastos (Clubs), Espadas (Swords), and Copas (Cups). While the deck is made primarily for play, it functions well as a divination tool. Each reader uses their own personal understanding and intuition to interpret the cards.

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.
