Today’s cards: 4 of Chalices, Knave of Chalices, & Ace of Wands.

Everyone has told you that too much of a good thing makes it a bad thing. And everyone is wrong, because it will take too much of a good thing for you to realize there is something better to do. One person’s pinnacle achievement is another person’s starting point and you are both people. There is more after this, but it will require you to study yourself and realize not only what you want to do going forward but how to recreate yourself to do it. It will be fun. You’ll see. Get to it.


The Fey Tarot is the work of Mara Aghem. While the card names mostly track conventional tarot naming, the scenes differ from Pamela Coleman Smith’s renditions. Not all minors display the full pip count of their number. Rather, the scenes are meant to evoke the intuition of the reader rather than depend on long lists of regurgitated meanings. The Fey Tarot is ©Lo Scarabeo.

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.
