So busy trying to be everything you possibly can be, you wind up being nothing useful to yourself. Stop chasing the wind, be it the currents of trends, gales of shame, or breezes of vanity. Stand still for a moment and regard not what you think you are capable of doing, but what you are actually capable of doing right now. Start there, with what is in your hand, and build on that until you create what you want to make of yourself.


The Bosch Tarot is a series of collages based on the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch. Using a unique set of meanings that doesn’t always aligns with Waite, it will sometimes read direct, and sometimes read like a koan. It is a good deck for introspection and examination of internal motives. The Bosch Tarot is presented by Atanas A. Atanassov and ©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.
