There is comfort in doing what is expected of you, in complying with the request just as you always have been. But that sense of safety may be numbing you to the warning pricks of approaching danger. Just because it has always been done this way doesn’t mean that it will save you from what is to come. Look past the fence to see what is coming over the hill before it arrives.


TrueBlack is the brainchild of Arthur Wang, designer and illustrator. All 22 Major Arcana cards feature an individual and distinctive additional gloss design, specifically illustrated to complement the card, which is difficult to capture in an image but a delight to view in person. All designs, illustrations, logistics, photography, and production is handled by Arthur. The TrueBlack 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.
