Loteria of the Day 06 30 2022
This is my first post about Mexican Loteria divination. I am committed to providing as much information as I can about the subject, however, I am not a scholar. Please visit the links below for more information.
39 El Nopal “The Cactus”
Succulents are plants which thrive in dry conditions. This mirrors a resourceful person who has discovered their own self-reliance throughout the course of their life. When we think of a cactus, we may think of the hidden water trapped inside of the flesh. It lives beneath the thorny exterior of the plant and is protected from easy predation.
When we see El Nopal this can also mean we are going to be receiving an unexpected blessing from the universe. This quenches your thirst in the desert of your journey! Keep up the good work, the ancestors are watching you!

The deck, consisting of 54 cards generally depicts art and symbolism present in Mexican culture. These cards are usually aimed at children or for general entertainment, but modern divination researchers, such as Garth Tardy, contributed to their development. Most of my information comes from this website:
I use the Loteria cards as a way of understanding how I can face hurdles in my life. I feel that they compliment the tarot, oracle, and affirmation decks well because they provide a different perspective on the theme of the day.
