Q — What do you read and what happens in a reading?
A reading is a 90-minute consultation between the querent (you) and the reader (me). I lay out possible life themes and changes by interpreting the tarot (the 78-card system of arcana which originated in 15th-century Italy) and astrology (the pattern analysis of cosmic symbols determined by one’s birth data; I work with humanistic and Jungian approaches). I draw tarot cards in response to the questions and stories you bring to the table, weaving in my interpretation of your natal chart and transits. We then use that as a basis to explore issues and options on your mind from a different, and hopefully helpful, angle.
Q — How do I prepare for a reading?
Once your booking is confirmed, feel free to email me the things you’d like to talk about in our session—any pressing themes, questions, or concerns (and backstories to any of those). It can be as brief or detailed as you like. using themes or questions to prompt our thinking process.
In general, it’s much better to ask open-ended ‘how’-type advice questions that expand your perspective on a matter (e.g. if you’re trying to choose between two options, or figure out a next step). I find that readings are most useful when they refresh your faith in your own ongoing process rather than give hard, specific predictions of ‘when’ / ‘who’ / ‘why’. For instance, what is the best way to create stuff I will be proud of seems like a more fruitful question than when will I make it big.
You’re encouraged to take notes and record our conversation as some messages won’t make sense until later. While we will pick up clues in the form of general time-frames, it’s more important for me to get you to a clearer place of honesty about yourself and how you see your situation, in the present. Aside from whatever I lay out in the reading, I will also provide informational resources on how to strengthen your own practices of interpretation after the reading.
Q — How do I book and pay for a reading?
The reading fee is PHP 3000 / USD 57, inclusive of reading notes and a list of recommended resources for further study. To book your slot, please email me one week before your desired date. In your message, please include your birth info (date, time, location), preferred reading date, and questions. After we agree on a common date and time, please pay the reading fee via PayPal to lock in your schedule.
