I’m Back From My (Sort Of) Partial Break

That didn’t go so well, did it?

While I mentioned that I would try my best to get back to blogging, I did the opposite and never wrote anything. Not only was I not making my blog alive, I was non-responsive to most (not all!) of the requests for tarot readings.

And for that, I would like to apologize to those who have been waiting for my responses to their requests. I would also like to share with you my side on why I fell off the radar.

I took a partial break due to burnout, and from pressures from people eager to meet me for their tarot readings.

Due to my work exhaustion, and to the tarot requests on top of the ones I was already giving, I decided to slow things down. I lessened some of my usual activities. It included taking less requests I received on my website. I also limited myself to giving tarot readings to my friends and their referrals.

I’ll do my best to be visible again, even if it means doing it little by little. So please, bear with me as I reach out to your requests. I’ll also get back to updating this blog with our usual “Messages from the Universe” and “Card in Focus” posts.

Another small update: I’m using my Prisma Visions by default now. I’ve also welcomed back Osho Zen as my secondary deck (and that’s another story altogether).

I thus welcome myself back!

My Tarot Reading Anniversary Post: Seven Years in the Craft

(Originally written on March 31st, 2017.)

I’ll try to be as active with blogging again, most especially because I’m really starting to get increasing numbers in online inquiries due to this:

My website appears in the first result for the search term “tarot reading manila”.

It appears that my website ranks in the first position for a handful of “valuable” tarot-related local search terms.

Start Looking At Your Year with the 2017 Calendar Tarot Reading (and An Announcement from Me)

Alright, how’s it going? I haven’t done anything to my website/blog as of late because I’ve been either mostly busy, or mostly exhausted, or both, for the past few weeks.  Rest assured though that I’m still here, knocking about, and trying as much as I can to catch up with the pending requests.

December is a popular month for tarot readings for a variety of reasons.  Mostly, it’s because it’s a month to wrap up 2016 and to start having perspectives about the upcoming year.  And that is why I would like to introduce a tarot spread which I only use on December and January.

Messages from the Universe: Have You Been Overthinking?

Messages of The Universe: I imagine myself having a conversation with the Universe.  If She could speak, she would say these three messages.  These could apply to me, or to you, or to any of my readers here.

It’s never too easy to calm down and have a relaxed outlook towards the biggest influences and dilemmas that are engulfing our lives.  Personally, one of the most common underlying emotional states that I’ve noticed whenever I read for people in tarot reading sessions is overthinking.  We will always have this tendency to over-analyze and always try to think too much when it comes to our situations.  And we cannot be blamed for it.  In fact, at least 8 in 10 people that I’ve asked the question “Are you a natural over-thinker?” have said yes.

Universe, what have you got to say about this? Continue reading “Messages from the Universe: Have You Been Overthinking?”

Messages from the Universe: Emotional Abundance

Hello, everyone!  How did your weekend go?

Mine was just okay.  I decided to stay home all weekend.  Well, almost.  I only had one tarot reading appointment last Saturday afternoon.  The rest, I spent just staying at home, switching between sleeping and watching a lot of House of Cards. Ruthless pragmatism.

Last weekend’s weather pretty much described what sort of emotions I’ve been going through for the past few months: occasional bouts of glum and coldness  But at the same time, I found a bit of comfort in it.  The coldness acted as a blanket to feel cozy.  And then, the Universe told me another thing.  It said:

What’s Inside My Bag?

Just like with many other things, like the bedroom, food, music, fashion, color, and bubblegum flavor, a bag and its contents can tell a lot of interesting things about its owner.  So, as another way of introducing myself, I’d let you in on the stuff inside my everyday bag.

For the nth time, my calendar saved my life.  Again.

Calendar 08072016

Today, I thought I only had one tarot appointment at 6pm.  I woke up at 2.30pm and when I checked my calendar, I forgot that I had a Continue reading “Waking Dream”
