What Does The Deck Say? September 25 2016

One of many Baraja EspaƱola decks, 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 divinatory tool. Each reader uses their own personal understanding and intuition to interpret the cards.

Today’s cards: 4 Oros, 9 Espadas, & 9 Bastos.

As long as you have money, you potentially have everything you could want. Food. Lodging. Entertainment. Everything else will flow to you naturally, right? Are you using your net worth as the measure of your happiness? At what point does retail therapy stop working to bolster you and start working to crush you? You’re going to find out when the pendulum swings the other way and you are confronted with circumstances your money can not buy your way out of. It is going to feel like a catastrophe at the time. If you make it through, you will be better off for the experience. (But first, it’s going to hurt.)
