Today’s cards: Queen of Swords, King of Swords, & Knight of Chalices.

For all your desire to be comfortable, that which needs to be done has neither room nor grace for that comfort to happen. If anything, you will have to leave comfort behind today if you are going to do those things that need to be done. It will be grating and you will question why you agreed to do these things. Nonetheless, the task is set and must be accomplished. The philosophical ponderings will have to wait.


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.
