Ran my Intuitive Tarot Workshop at Basic Essence today!

I started doing the Tarot since 1986, bought my first deck in Australia; since then it has become such a passion that in 2001 I started doing professional readings. At public events; like bazaars and shopping fairs I used to be such a novelty; I remember one time this child asked her daddy what was I doing, his reply was ” she thinks she is a Chinese gypsy!” Not that  it made any sense to the 5 year old child but I thought it was an interesting remark.

Throughout the past 12 years, there have been many requests for me to teach Tarot Workshops, somehow I didn’t get the calling to do so until this  year. In September 2013, I ran my very first Intuitive Tarot Workshop at the Reiki Centre in Joo Chiat. I had 5 participants, 4 ladies and 1 gentleman.  It was an intense yet fun afternoon enjoy by all.

On 30th November 2013, I ran my second Intuitive Tarot Workshop at Basic Essence located at Cluny Court; again I have 5 participants; 4 ladies and 1 gentleman.

Tarot Wisdom 15th Sept. 2012

The Star if upright is a wish card.

In this instance it is in reversed.
Does this mean you will not get your wish?
Well, the good news is no!

The message here indicates the state of returning to the womb.

If you have been going through a rough patch and feeling lost.
This card indicates that regardless the bad the situation has been, it will stop here.

Allow energy to recycle by detaching your emotions and wait for the resolution to appear.

Let go of the need to struggle.

Weekly Tarot Wisdom dated 1st sept. 2012

This message in this card is about our emotions and choices in life.

With a reversed card, it is about being emotionally closed.
You may feel the inability to set yourself free from negative emotions or trapped in negative relationships.

If you are facing any of the above mentioned issues it is time to reflect on the choices that you have made and look at how you can set yourself free.

About Tarot

In the last two decade, the use of tarot and interest in its history has become increasingly popular. The history of Tarot has many interesting facts and myths and are often confusing.  There are also much speculations on where and when the tarot first originated? Some say India, China, Egypt, Morocco and some have even suggested that it exits in the time of Moses. However, no modern historians have backed up the above these theories.

The original deck came from Northern Italy around 1420-1440 painted for the Duke of Milan by Bonificio Bembo and this deck is still in existence. It has been said that another deck was originally used in France in the 13 th century but it was later found to be the Card of Triumps or Trumps, a common game amongst the people during that era. Incidentally, that was why the Tarot was originally known as “Cards de trionfi” or Trumps. It only became to be known as Tarrochi or Tarrok in German about 100 years later. Although I suspect that the images and use was probably very different.

The traditional Tarot is a deck of 78 cards that is divided into two main sections: Major Arcana  and Minor Arcana cards. The Major Arcana is a set of 22 picture cards, these cards are symbolic representations of the different stages of our lives. Example of the are cards like the Death, Justice, Strength, Star and etc. The Fifty-six cards of the Minor Arcana are divided into 4 suits which are similar to our normal playing cards. They are the suits of the Minor Arcana are the Wands, Pentacles, Swords and the Cups. The Minor Arcana cards can represent people, relationships, finances, health, careers and etc.

When an individual consults the tarot, it describes the events and qualities of the present. Each card in the tarot has up-sides and down sides in meanings; essentially there are no bad cards just perhaps some bad interpretations. They reflect the inner quality and hidden information that are personal to the individual. It sheds inner wisdom that will them the freedom of choice to decide the path to take to reach desired goals and destinations.

A professional Tarot session therefore can be encouraging, inspiring and good for the self esteem simply because it focuses on *you* and your needs. Certainly, I claim no “one time fix all magical solution” to your life challenges. It is simply an effective way to give you insights and clarity that will help you in decision making by offering suggestions and possible outcome.
