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.

Chinese Wedding Customs

Chinese wedding preparations

Customary Chinese wedding preparations
In the last decade, following traditions of the customary Chinese wedding seems to have become more popular. The history of Chinese wedding customs dates back to 221BC to 402BC, when – very much like the marriage registration and certification of today – the Chinese practised what is known as San Shu, Liu Li – three certifications and six etiquettes. Today, San Shi and Liu are no longer in practice but some of the customs are still considered mandatory to Chinese families. While many young couples choose to simplify these customs, there is an increased interest in many who try to find out and follow as closely to the original customary wedding as possible.

The Bride price

This is a token sum that is agreed by the couple’s families and is given by the groom’s family to the bride’s family as a gift.

Wedding ceremony Auspicious dates and hours are needed for the following rituals:
• Wedding date.
• Gift exchange.
• Hairdressing ritual.
• The groom leaving his home to fetch his bride.
• The bride leaving her home with her groom.
• Tea ceremony at the groom’s home.

Dos and don’ts
1) At the proposal meeting, avoid asking for an unreasonable bride price.
2) Bridesmaids and friends of the bride are invited to play the “door game” where they playfully try to block the groom from entering the bride’s room on the morning of the wedding day. Always be mindful of the time, so the bride can depart her home at the most auspicious time
3) Although not a common rule, the bride should only change into her new shoes just before entering the wedding car to indicate she’s not taking away good luck from her parents.
4) The groom’s immediate family – parents and siblings – should avoid facing the door as the bride enters her new home for the first time. This will avoid any confrontational clashes likely to bring disputes into the marriage.
5) Pregnant ladies and those in mourning should not participate in any of the pre-wedding or wedding rituals, nor touch any items belonging to the bride and groom.
6) Six and ten are the magical numbers for weddings as they represent happiness and perfection. So it is always best to pack Hong Baos with these amounts, for example $60, $100, $120, $160, $200 and so on. Ironically using the number eight is a taboo at Chinese weddings as the Chinese character of eight is made up of two separate strokes and symbolically this means the couple will end up going their separate ways.

White Tiger Festival

Lunar New Year is over but part of the Spring Festival includes the White Tiger Festival.  Read on to find out why and how this festival came about:

Almost immediately after Lunar New Year is the season of Qin Zhe, one of the 24 seasons mentioned in the Chinese Almanac or the Farmers’ Calendar. Qin Zhe marks the awakening of all animals in hibernation and the main festival during this season is the White Tiger Festival.

Legend has it that the White Tiger festival evolves from the time when villages in ancient China were being attacked by wild tigers which, after long harsh winters, were known to prowl the villages for food.  It was customary to perform prayer ceremonies for protection of their village against these potential attacks. Offerings of food, especially pork and duck eggs, were most welcome: the idea was to feed the hungry wild tigers to prevent them from attacking the villages.

As time passed, this tradition became a festival in which one could gain protection against vile and ferocious people in your lives and surroundings. The twist in this legend is that the Tiger somehow became the object of worship in this festival, known as the Tiger Deity.

Today, similarly to the original tradition, pork and eggs are used in offerings by those seeking blessings and protection from ferocious people, known as “little people” in the Chinese language. This lunar year, the festival falls on March 5 and the season begins at 12:21pm.

 

Lunar zodiacs requiring the blessings of the White Tiger:
Rat
Dragon
Snake
Goat
Horse
Monkey

All other zodiacs can also make offering to the White Tiger Deity on March 5 with the exception of the Tiger Zodiac as their zodiac is clashing with the day’s representing zodiac, the Monkey.

Ching Ming or Tomb Sweeping Festival

Ching Ming Festival

Origins of Ching Ming
This year’s Ching Ming or Tomb Sweeping day falls on April 6. Generally, a week before and two weeks after Ching Ming is acceptable to honor the ancestors at the temples, grave site or crematoriums. This is also a practical measure as these places will be utterly packed during Ching Ming and to spread the prayer days out makes a lot of practical sense.

Honoring Ancestors

Honoring ancestors begins with proper positioning of a gravesite and coffin. Rich families will believe in the concept of “Feng Shui”, or geomancy and as far as possible, will choose an area that faces south, with groves of pine trees to create the best flow of cosmic energy required to keep ancestors happy.

A “happy ancestor” will in turn, bless the living family! Family members will visit the gravesite of their ancestors at least once a year to tend to the tombs, especially on Qing Ming. The Chinese will cook up good food to their ancestors at altar tables on Ching Ming in their homes. The food usually consists of chicken, eggs, or other dishes a deceased ancestor was fond of. Accompanied by rice, the dishes and eating utensils are carefully arranged according to a certain position so as to bring good luck.
