This week, we talk about presidents and we’re pretty hard on the querant.

I was at what was ostensibly a party, but tired of all of the karaoke. So I ghosted. I feel bad about it. Will this decision have a negative affect on my future? What do the cards portend?


We answered her question using the Mystical Tarot Deck by Giuliano Costa. The symbolism is pretty standard on this deck, but the artwork is somehow both Renaissance and Aztec.

This Week’s 3-Card Tarot Reading

The Past: SIX OF SWORDS | The Present: FIVE OF CUPS | The Future: FOOL

Our advice: You’ve used your sociopathic mind to selfishly leave something behind (Six of Swords), and it’s easy to feel bad when you’ve done something horrible, but there is forgiveness and understanding present for you (Five of Cups). There is still time to pull yourself back from the edge and let your conscience guide you back to uphold the social contract (Fool).

The Card of the Week

This week’s Card of the Week comes from the Ostara Tarot by Molly Applejohn, Eden Cooke, Krista Gibbard, & Julia Iredale.
