I use tarot and oracle cards as tools for reflection and contemplation. Rather than divining the future, they are a way for me to look more deeply at the "now."

How's Your Luck?

This week I'll be using the Neuzeit Tarot, created by Walter Wegmüller and published by AGMüller. The oracle I'll be using is a combination of Rory's Story Cubes (Original set and Voyages set), created by Rory O'Connor and published by Gamewright. Today's draws are the Page of Pentacles and the cubes "Moon/Magnifying Glass:"
Would this Page's dad be proud of him for being such an entrepreneur? Probably not if he gets busted by the gambling commission for running an illegal game. Yet there are always people looking to make an easy, fast buck. When I go get gas at the curb store, people are constantly lined up waiting for lotto tickets. Yet this Page's jester hat should be a clue that the odds of winning is slim and none. I imagine the only real winner is the Page who is raking in money from the players. The Moon cube suggests that there's not a lot of clarity here, and the Magnifying Glass suggests reading the fine print and taking a closer look at things. In this case, if the deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.


  1. Ha ha, This is not a page I like to count as a friend! Usually I love the Page of Pentacles: His enthusiasm to learn new skills.
    I don't know this deck so I will be looking forward to see more from it.:)

    1. The Neuzeit is so un-RWS that it is both challenging and fun. :) He's learning some new skills alright!
