What Does The Deck Say? October 5, 2022

Baraja Azteca: 10 Copas, 3 Copas, & 8 Espadas.

Today’s cards: 10 Copas, 3 Copas, & 8 Espadas.

So sure that it’s going to happen the way you always wanted it to happen that when it is revealed that it will never happen that way, much less happen at all, you are going to feel it like a physical wound. It’s okay to cry about dashed hopes and broken dreams. Mourn what you wished for but do not lose yourself so much to the fading dream that you make yourself unable to work with what would up in your hands.


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.
