You can’t force this. Not the timing, not the environment, and none of the details. You can’t bring this into being by your will alone. You can put yourself in position for it to happen. You can make yourself available for something novel to come your way. You can place yourself where you are comfortable but still be available for something new to happen. It doesn’t have to be a relationship. It just has to remind your heart that it is a reflection of the sun, and that it too, needs to shine.


The Sweeney Tarot was designed to read with reversals. Having the expected 78 cards, one could use any system of meanings with it. However creator and artist Lee Bradford has put deep thought into the meanings of the Sweeney Tarot, making sure it is approachable by all and without occult or religious concerns that would restrict its audience or use.

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.
