What is written in your palm

Although palmistry is a skill that is developed but for some people they are gifted with an innate talent of seeing through the palm and feeling the pulse of the person. Long time ago in China the practice of determining the pulse is not only what western medicine does of counting the pulse rate but ancient doctors of the East and some would be able to sense your illness just by checking your palm.

Many books have been written and continue to be published about palmistry. But indeed only few are gifted to read the lines of the palm properly and to foretell the past, present and future of the person. But again I believe the future is yet to come and the person whether destiny or fate still has some influence of what she/he would want to happen to his/her life.

So what wikipedia tells about palmistry: (

Palmistry or chiromancy (also spelled cheiromancy, Greek kheir (χεῖρ, ός), “hand”; manteia(μαντεία, ας), “divination”), is the art of characterization and foretelling the future through the study of the palm, also known as palm reading, or chirology. The practice is found all over the world, with numerous cultural variations. Those who practice chiromancy are generally called palmistspalm readershand readershand analysts, or chirologists.

Palmistry is a practice originating in the Far East.[1] The practice of palmistry has been used in the cultures of India, Tibet, China, Persia, and some countries in Europe. Studies show that most ancient communities like the Hindus, Sumerians, Tibetans, Hebrews, Babylonians, and Persians were greatly interested in the study and practice of palmistry.

It is believed[2] that Palmistry originated in India with its roots in (Hindu) Astrology (known in Sanskrit as Jyotish), Chinese Yijing (I Ching), and Roma(Gypsy) fortune tellers.[2] The Hindu sage Valmiki is thought [3] to have written a book several thousand years ago, whose title translates in English as "The Teachings of Valmiki Maharshi on Male Palmistry", comprising 567 stanzas.[3][4] Renowned palmist Cheiro learnt palmistry in India where he is believed to have read ancient scriptures on palmistry. From India, the art of palmistry spread to China, TibetEgyptPersia and to other countries inEurope [2][5] From China, palmistry progressed to Greece where Anaxagoras practiced it.[2] Aristotle (384–322 B.C.E.) discovered a treatise on the subject of palmistry on an altar of Hermes, which he then presented to Alexander the Great (356–323 B.C.E.), who took great interest in examining the character of his officers by analyzing the lines on their hands.[6] Aristotle stated that "Lines are not written into the human hand without reason. They emanate from heavenly influences and man's own individuality." Accordingly, Aristotle, Hippocrates and Alexander the Great popularized the laws and practice of palmistry. Hippocrates sought to use palmistry to aid his clinical procedures. Modern palmists often combine traditional predictive techniques with psychologyholistic healing, as well as alternative methods of divination.

History of Tarot


The tarot (pron.: /ˈtær/; first known as trionfi and later as tarocchitarock, and others) is a pack ofplaying cards (most commonly numbering 78), used from the mid-15th century in various parts of Europe to play a group of card games such as Italian tarocchini and French tarot. From the late 18th century until the present time the tarot has also found use by mystics and occultists in efforts at divination or as a map of mental and spiritual pathways.
The tarot has four suits (which vary by region, being the French suits in Northern Europe, the Latin suits in Southern Europe, and the German suits in Central Europe). Each of these suits has pip cards numbering from ace to ten and four face cards for a total of 14 cards. In addition, the tarot is distinguished by a separate 21-card trump suit and a single card known as the Fool. Depending on the game, the Fool may act as the top trump or may be played to avoid following suit.[1]
François Rabelais gives tarau as the name of one of the games played by Gargantua in his Gargantua and Pantagruel;[2] this is likely the earliest attestation of the French form of the name.[citation needed] Tarot cards are used throughout much of Europe to play card games. In English-speaking countries, where these games are largely unplayed, tarot cards are now used primarily for divinatory purposes.[1][3] Occultists call the trump cards and the Fool "the major arcana" while the ten pip and four court cards in each suit are called minor arcana. The cards are traced by some occult writers to ancient Egypt or the Kabbalah but there is no documented evidence of such origins or of the usage of tarot for divination before the 18th century.[1]

Tagaytay My New Year Hideaway


Tagaytay will be my refuge to reflect and re-energize for the New Year. Although the Chinese New Year or the Year of the Water Snake will be on February 10, 2013, still, I will be celebrating the Gregorian Calendar's New Year which will be in the next few days.

Tagaytay is my alternative to Baguio City, a place that I also love because of its nice weather. I learned that these days the weather is very cool although at this time so many people goes up to the mountain city away from their homes especially the folks of Manila.

To know more about Tagaytay people can go and visit this site for information -

It would be really nice to just sit, experience the cool weather of Tagaytay and look at Taal Lake. As a resident of the city I would want to be away from the noise and pollution of toxic firecrackers during New Year.

What about you where are you spending your New Year?

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!

2013 Year of Water Snake

Another interesting read on the year of the Snake

While the Western world is still saying “hello” to calendar year 2013, in Eastern cultures, practitioners of Feng Shui are gearing up for the Year of the Water Snake.
The lunar new year begins on Feb. 10, 2013, when the Year of the Water Dragon yields to the Snake. Individuals born in the year of the Snake are often described as quick-witted, charming, successful and wise, but sometimes they are not trusted by their peers.

2013 Year of the Snake, Know thy fortune!

(Interested on tarot reading - please check my contact details 
and give me a call or email.)

 If you have not liked my Facebook page - please do so here -

The Snake () is one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac and related to the Chinese calendar, as well as in related East Asian zodiacal or calendrical systems. The Year of the Snake is associated with the earthly branch symbol .

It is the enigmatic,  intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animals Signs.  Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means that your family will not starve.  People born in the Year of the Snake are keen and cunning, quite intelligent and wise.  They are great mediators and good at doing business.  Therefore, you should have good luck if you were born in the  Year of the Snake. 

So for 2013 it would be the Year of the Water Snake starting from 10 February 2013 up to 30 January 2014. This year all things will be possible.  Saving money and being thrifty should be your top priorities.  Delusion and deception are common in the year of water Snake.  Stay alert!  To gain the greatest benefits from this year, you must control spending and use your talents wisely.  If you are planning to get married or to begin a business partnership, be sure to thoroughly investigate the other person's finances and background before you legalize the alliance.

The Sign of the Snake

People born in the Year of the Snake share certain characteristics:  Acute, aware, charming, cunning, elegant, mysterious, passionate, proud, serene, and vain. They are attractive people who take cries with ease and do not become flustered easily.  They are graceful people, exciting and dark at the same time.  They enjoy reading, listening to great music, tasting delicious food, and going to the theater.  They are fascinated with all beautiful things in life.  Many of the most beautiful ladies and men with strongest personalities were born in the Year of the Snake.

Contemplative and private, Snake people are not outwardly emotional.  They usually act according to their own judgment and do not follow the views of others. They can appear cunning and reticent and work very modestly in the business environment.  They will plot and scheme to make certain things turn out exactly as they want them to.  They are not great communicators and can become quite possessive when they set their minds on achieving the interest of a partner.

Snake people become easily stressed and have to avoid hectic schedules or noisy atmospheres.  They need calm and quiet to thrive and succeed.  They must have sleep, relaxation, and peace  to live a long, healthy life.

People born in the Year of the Snake are usually very sophisticated and cultured in their choices for home decoration.  They are elegant and graceful and place emphasis on their comfort when deciding what to decorate with.  They are materialistic and need to have as many of everything as possible.

They become bored easily and therefore change jobs quite frequently.  They are very conscientious and diligent at work.  They are organized and precise, cautious and alert when doing business.  They act confidently, calmly and have a strong sense of responsibility and clear goals. Sometimes, because they like to work alone, they can seem as though they are withholding information or being secretive about some important things.

Snake people are oversuspicious, which is their nature.  They hide their suspicion, and acting as if nothing is on their minds.  They like to think deeply, plan carefully and make a systematic and appropriate exposition of their views. They like to follow the fashion and be properly dressed. And, they usually speak with great care.

Snake people are passionate lovers and show a strong desire for control when associating with others.  They will never forgive anyone who breaks a promise.  They show their resentment with ice-cold hostility instead of bitter words.  Some of the people born in the Year of the Snake may strike their enemies with a deadly blow.

It seems not easy to deal with a person born in the Year of the Snake, especially when he thinks one way and behaves in another.  There always lies an alert heart behind his serene appearance.  He has a strong will and will try his best to hold fast to his position.  He is so cunning that when you think you may have seized him, he has already slipped away.

Snake people will face danger fearlessly and deal with unforeseen disasters. They are not annoyed by lack of money and are usually lucky enough to own everything they need.  They can be successful as long as they avoid excess spending.  Although they are intuitive, they should avoid dive right into decisions without weighing the consequences.

Famous Snake People:  Anne Rice, Ann-Margret,  Audrey Hepburn, Christie Brinkley, Elizabeth Hurley, Grace Kelly, Jacqueline Kennedy, Kim Basinger, Linda McCartney, Liv Tyler,  Oprah Winfrey, Queen Elizabeth I, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Tarot card reading vs Hula

I made a comment on this topic at a forum - Re tarot reading and hula for a person starting to do tarot:

I totally agree to Andalusia's sharing (she made a reply to the person who posted a query), in particular tarot reading as a form of entertainment.

Although as a beginner or doing it as a sideline you really need to practice a lot and develop the skills. Otherwise you will lose your clients and will not return back to you if you do not read the cards carefully.

I have sustain myself through my followers and through words of mouth from my regular patrons. Since I do not have a place of my own, unlike before I used to read with other folks at Edsa Shangrila, I read clients at coffeeshops and restaurants, of course all these readings are through appointment. Some clients have came across me through fliers/posters at UP Shopping center, through my blog and others read testimonials about me at different forum.

As to pricing - I am at high-end, for beginner I believe the common rate would be 300-500 pesos a reading.

Also I like to dispel the notion that tarot readers are manghuhula. Reading tarot is not a form of hula, as a reader whatever cards you pick I interpret it for you. For that reason I charge higher because my reading is more wholistic - I do birth chart, palmistry, and if clients are not satisfied I can also give them I Ching reading.

So enjoy your journey through tarot card reading and please do not mistaken hula for tarot reading, unless otherwise you really do not fully grasp what tarot reading is, or for some they make hula in their interpretation of the tarot since they are not attuned with the real essence of tarot reading.

Below is my posting to a Sulit  forum inspired by the topic above:

I like to dispel the notion of tarot readers as manghuhula. 

As a tarot reader I do not make hula but intepret what the cards says once drawn by the client. For a good tarot card reader the card never tells a lie about the condition and situation of a person wanting to be read. Uarenskilled tarot reader I believe would make hula if they are not adept at interpreting the meaning of the card. And for those who are not sincere in reading the cards properly to the clients will never become a good one if they have not lose the confidence of the people they read. For those who make tsamba - well it won't be for long that their schemes will be found out.

There's energy and connection between the reader and the tarot he/she uses, so for some readers would prefer a particulat deck of cards. Also a sincere person who wants to be read will definitely find answers to his/her questions since it is the energy of the person that chooses and picks the card for interpreation. Also, as a practitioner who have gone through several years of experience, tarot card reading is far from hula since I also help the client validate and seek answers to his/her questions by using other means like the use of the I Ching.

Aside from that, skills for drawing up an accurate birth chart and abilities to read palm helps me confirm my reading with clients.

So I hope that those who are wanting to learn tarot reading should never compare themselves with a manghuhula and also those who are not so familiar with tarot reading should never consider us as manghuhula. Tarot readers are of a different breed. Some of us become one by instinct, inspiration or purely gifted with psychic abilities and the rest became one through their effort of learning the art and skills of tarot reading. 

Anyway it is up to the client to believe or not what the card tells, otherwise the reading could be considered as a meaningful entertainment.

Tarot Reading and I ching appeal to figuring out and finding answers to both personal concerns and issues. Some uses birth chart to determine luck, prosperity as well as compatibility with their fiance, friends or spouse.

I hope through this forum post readers are now cleared that tarot readers are unique individuals and they are not into the craft of manghuhula or doing the tricks of hula.
