Nonsensical or Insightful? How About Both?
At 105 cards, this deck is not really a tarot deck, but don't let that discourage you. There are many different types of divination decks available for those who use cartomancy. Playing cards, Lenormand, oracle decks and even old postcards can help you visualize and analyze an issue in a helpful way. I like to use a variety of tools so I don’t see one as better than another. It’s a collaboration between reader and tool and you may find you are more effectively able to use one kind of tool over another.
What Is Arcane Bullshit?
Evan Doherty’s deck deserves a more thorough review, but I am not going to do that now, That is going to take some time. I want to, yes seriously, work with it a while AND I also need to figure out how to shuffle this monstrosity. One of the things Doherty did to add to the ridiculousness and possible frustration was number the cards in the guidebook, but there is no number on any of the cards so you get to hunt through for his funny definitions each time.
THE SHIT SANDWICH!
1. Past: 101 Holy Shit! Stop Asking.
ME: This is actually a valid point. I have known what I’m dealing with for a long time. It’s not a bad idea to go inward and reflect. I do know a Cheryl who has always given good advice. Coincidence? I think not. I’m aligned with the bullshit here. In the past, I often wasted too much time trying to figure out things I already knew the answer to. Also, people often bombard me with questions they can easily look up the answers to. I know how this guy feels.
2. Present: 49 It’s Probably Nothing.
ME: Ouch. Okay. Thanks. Good to know that the passing thought that someone hated me enough to try to curse me is just my own ego. Things have been really nebulous, chaotic and weird lately, but rather than worry, I’m just going to decide it’s not worth worrying about. The picture will come into focus on its own.
3. Future: 71 A Skeleton Eating A Banana.
ME: Well, an important male mentor in my life did just pass away and I can already see that is going to affect a number of tangible things in my life. However, I think this is about trying to find a way to feel nourished, to find spiritual food and put more focus on self care.
Also, now I’m thinking about sex. Thanks.
BULLSHIT: You’re welcome.
