Why get an Astrology reading?


It's more than having your horoscopes read. Using your ASTROLOGICAL CHART as a soul map, you can discover what lessons your soul came to learn, provide deep insights into your personality, discover the gifts we were given and learn how can we use them to be of service in this world. By reading your chosen Astrology Chart, we can find out the ff: NATAL CHART - Your natal chart reveals everything you bring into this lifetime, including your belief systems and values. This chart shows the kind of family you were born into and your primary lesson (tikkun) in this life. Examining this chart is useful in helping you to better understand and accept yourself, your lessons, and your purpose for being here. PROGRESSIONS AND TRANSITS CHART - This is a modified natal chart that shows the opportunities, challenges, and growth cycles that you are currently experiencing. A progression reading is useful for helping you to see where your energy may best be spent; by aligning yourself with these cycles that are continuously changing, your life generally falls more smoothly into place. COMPARISON CHART - In this reading we compare your natal chart with that of another person(s). It is a blueprint of the relationship itself, showing what is created by the joining of the individuals and is very useful in understanding relationship dynamics. It can help you understand why you are a certain way with a particular person and can give you insight as to the value, struggles, nature, and purpose of the relationship, as well as how the relationship can support or detract you from your goals. SOLAR RETURN CHART - Every year of the Gregorian calendar, the Sun comes back to its original placement in the natal chart. It is then time to analyze the trends of the upcoming year and reinforce all the potential gifts it contains. This chart should be taking place on or near your birthday.




How do I book an astrology reading session?


You can book here.




There are no more available slots, can I book via Instagram DM / email?


No. When my booking system / website says there are no available slots that means there are NO available slots. Just because you can send a DM or email does not mean a slot will automatically be available for you. My website's booking system is linked to my calendar and makes it a lot easier for me to organize my schedule. Check in again after a few hours to see if a slot opens up.




Had a brain fart and provided an incorrect / incomplete place / time / date of birth upon booking. What do I do?


You may email me your CORRECT details at thewhimsicalarcane@gmail.com at least a day before your actual schedule. I will not be accepting on the spot changes as I need time to study your chart. Astrology relies heavily on the relative position of different planets, the moon and the sun at the time, place and date of your birth. It is crucial that you provide your correct details (check your birth certificates or medical records for reference) when you book your session so I can accurately read your chart.




How different is Kabbalistic Astrology with regular astrology?


In Kabbalistic Astrology, you'll discover the following: TIKKUN Aramaic word for correction. Kabbalah teaches that each of us comes into this world to correct something. It reveals the kind of choices we’ve made in past lives and, more important, which choices we should make this time around. FREEWILL People are not planets. The purpose of Kabbalistic Astrology is to rise above the influences of the cosmos and take control over our own lives. INTERNAL ENERGY FOR EACH SIGNS If you are into astrology, you learned that Fire signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius; Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces; Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn and lastly Air signs are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. In Kabbalistic Astrology, while Capricorn’s external energy is Earth, its internal energy is Water. Capricorn is Earth of Water - grounded and intuitive. By learning the internal energy of each sign, we can fully understand on a deeper level what our sign is truly is. HYBRID CALENDAR We follow the Kabbalistic Calendar - moon cycles and the Gregorian calendar - sun cycles. A sun cycle has 365.25 days and a moon cycle has 354 days. There are 11.25 days difference in a year.





TAROT

What is Tarot?


By definition, Tarot is made up of 78 cards each with its own unique Tarot card meaning. There are 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 Minor Arcana cards across four suits (Cups, Pentacles, Swords and Wands). The Major Arcana are the most important cards on the deck as it reflects significant life events. The Minor Arcana on the other hand, reflects on the day-to-day activities of the querents' lives. Learn more here.




What is the difference between Tarot and Oracle?


Oracle decks do not follow the traditional 78 card structure of the Tarot. Oracle cards are divinatory tools usually created and designed by an author or artist. Combined together, the Tarot & Oracle can bring about more details and personal spiritual messages.




What is the difference between Tarot and Lenormand?


Lenormand is another powerful cartomancy that has been around for decades. A Lenormand deck only has 36 cards unlike the Tarot which has 78 cards. Each cards have it's own unique meaning that when read altogether, the cards combined can form sentences layered with meanings - much like telling a story. To know more about Lenormand, click here.




What is Cartomancy?


Cartomancy, as defined by Wikipedia, is fortune-telling or divination using a deck of cards. I started my Tarot, Oracle & Lenormand journey years ago by self-studying, familiarising myself with each deck and naturally learning the cards' system basics by the book. Now, as a seasoned reader, I read and interpret the cards intuitively thus being called an intuitive reader or reading intuitively (using intuition).




Is Tarot devil worship?


No. I do not worship nor am I and my readings or any of the services I am offering associated with the devil. You will find my readings love and light centered and intentions are always set for the highest and greater good.




What is an intuitive reading like?


Hopefully, it's like sitting with a sister or friend who gives you lots of in-depth life advice and counseling. It is not at all scary however, there will be cases that a reading is not all sunshines, unicorns and rainbows especially when it brings up tough life issues that we need to address. Getting your reading is a very healing experience and that one must have courage, humility and self-acceptance.




How do I know which type of reading I should like to get?


That would depend on what guidance and healing you seek. You will find I have made certain Tarot spreads for you to choose from (love, career, birthday readings, etc).




What kind of questions can I ask in a Tarot reading?


Veer away from asking vague questions. To effectively receive the answers that you seek, formulate your questions in an open-ended manner. To ask open-ended questions, avoid starting the question with Will…, When… and Should…, and instead ask What…, How… and Why. For example, 'What do I do to find true love?' instead of asking 'When will I find true love?'




How do I book a Tarot reading with you?


You can book a reading with me here.




Do you do in-person Tarot readings?


No. All Tarot readings will be sent to your email.





REIKI & CRYSTAL REIKI

What is Reiki?


The word “Reiki” comes from the Japanese words “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy). Reiki is a form of holistic energy healing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress, relieves anxiety and enhances the quality of life by creating a positive mental state and awareness. This natural healing art was first created by Mikao Usui in Japan in the early 20th century, and has been continued to be passed through generations until now. Learn more here.




What is Crystal Reiki?


Since crystals were used for centuries as tools for healing and increasing levels of awareness, combined this knowledge with Traditional Reiki - Crystal Reiki utilizes the frequencies or healing properties that reside within the earth and amplifies them through the power of Reiki energy. In a Crystal Reiki session, a Crystal Reiki practitioner will use specifically selected crystals and place them in a specific layout around and on the recipient and then allow Reiki energy to flow through the Crystal Reiki practitioner into the crystals and then the recipient. Learn more here.




How does Reiki healing work?


Energy flows within the physical body though pathways called Chakras. Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel'. When this flow of energy is disrupted or has slowed down its spinning or got stuck, it causes diminished function of the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual state. There are 7 primary energy centers (Chakra) in the body which spin harmoniously together when balanced. However, Chakras can become imbalanced due to stressful circumstances (LIFE). Enter Reiki. Reiki is a beautiful energy healing art. With Reiki, a Reiki Practitioner or Master can make the Chakras spin and move harmoniously again. A balanced Chakra improves overall health and wellbeing.




How does a Distance Reiki session work?


Distance Reiki can be sent to anyone, anywhere and at any time by a Reiki Master using a Master Level Reiki symbol. This distance symbol is used to cross any distance in time or space. It allows me to clear blockages from someone's past, as well as perform Reiki on someone who is not physically present. This is especially efficient during this COVID-19 situation where we are all required to do social distancing. Your Reiki / Crystal Reiki healing session will be done remotely and I will connect with you energetically. The energy will be transmitted through my hands using various Reiki symbols and will send them to you during the session. I will send you instructions prior to your scheduled appointment to help you prepare for your session.




How do I book a Distance Reiki / Crystal Reiki session with you?
