I Love Tokyo Tarot So Much

Look at us, aren’t we fab? Here we are doing Secret Santa in Royal Garden Cafe last Saturday. This is exactly the Tarot group I wanted to create.

If you want to join us our next dinner is in Ginza – lah-di-dah! – and we are having a swap event. Bring your pre-loved esoteric treasures, such as crystals, decks, books, new candles etc. to exchange. I’m coming with a Cathar Tarot deck (with book and original box) and a few more bits and pieces. Check out the details here:

Past Life Tarot Reading

Image: I’ve posted it before and I’ll post it again: Moon card from Light and Shadow Tarot. Isn’t it amazing?

I’ve heard that some Tarot readers offer past-life Tarot readings and I thought that would be really cool, so I was wondering if that would interest anyone? Just to get the party started, I’m offering 20% off your normal Tarot fee. Contact me at the email on the About Me page and we can sort something out. This offer is for one reading only, not for the 2-4-1 promo I’m running until the end of January – see previous post for details.

By the way, my reading fees are all going up in the New Year, so if you want to benefit from my incredibly low prices, now is the time! Hint hint…

Udemy Comprehensive Tarot Course – all set for January

So far, I’ve finished all the Major Arcana and Court Card lectures, and I’m just writing the Pip card lectures with a couple of extra cherries for the top of the cake: a short but sweet workshop on Marseille-style decks, and a video presentation on 3 ways to read Oracle cards.

This course will be totally FREE, as a way for me to showcase my amahzing talent, and of course to spread the Tarot love a little bit further.

Please watch the video of Lecture 1 (it’s only 6 minutes) and let me know what you think. And whilst you’re on my YouTube channel, don’t forget to subscribe, friends!

One for you, one for your friend – free

Maman Miyuki’s Tarot de Marseille

BUY ONE, GET ONE FOR YOUR FRIEND FOR FREE.

Until the 2nd of January, when you buy a Tarot reading from me, whether in person, via e-mail or Skype, I will give a free Tarot reading as a present to your friend. E-mail me at the address on the Readings page of this site for further information.

Tarot For Your Business

I heard a rumour recently, and although I’ve tried to research this so far I haven’t actually found any proof, that the new business trend is fortune-telling for business advantage. And why not, friends? Everyone deserves to be loved, and goodness knows I’ve given enough Tarot readings on that subject, so why not use Tarot for other aspects of your life?

In this video, I discuss giving a SWOT analysis in order to give yourself a business advantage. Watch and then comment on whether or not you think this gives people an unfair advantage.

Arakawa Street Fes

Today I’m at Arakawa Street Fes (or should that be ‘fesses’ pour les français dans la salle?) where I’ll be at the Tarot stall – where else? Rumour has it there are to be actual vegan toasted sandwiches on site… See? Kali answers even your most unlikely prayers, every time. Jai!

Festival website is HERE.

Google map code is HERE.

See you there.

Tarot Gives Financial Guidance

So, of course, disclaimer disclaimer, I am NOT saying that you should use the Tarot for your financial guidance. If you have a financial or money-related question, you should go to a licensed professional. However, I would just like to share a story about how that could actually work.

I went to a hot spring in Nagano, North Japan, with my cousins a few years ago. One of my cousins is what you could call an in-the-bone socialist, she has lived on a beach in Thailand in her bikini for 5 years, for example. So when I gave her a Tarot reading, I was shocked, yes shocked to see the 4 of Pentacles, Queen of Pentacles and King of Pentacles all there on the table. I told her that I thought her reading was wrong, but she said: Just go ahead and tell me what you see.

So, I said: “Turns out, you’re a money-grabbing whore after all!” No, that’s not what I said, nor even what I thought, but I just slipped that in the story, in case it gave you a bit of a laugh. What I actually said was: “Looks like you have some financial issues on your mind, you are thinking about saving and investing for the future, maybe budgeting and making financial plans of all sorts.” She agreed, and said that that was why she had asked me for a Tarot reading, because she was thinking of getting investments and a retirement plan, now her daughter was getting older and she was planning for the future.

Incredible, I thought, that the Tarot can be that pin-point accurate, that we can get answers to even our most worldly questions using the Tarot. And THAT’S when I decided to become a professional Tarot card reader, in case you were wondering.

Talking of which, yesterday this happened:

Thank you as ever to my super-sweet Tokyo Tarot Meetup Group. We completed Lesson 5 of 8 of our Tarot course yesterday. I asked my students for a reading about a rather scary letter from my local council in the UK, and what I should do about it. Should I call and confess all, or should I try to brush everything under the carpet?

What’s your interpretation?

Bauls of Bengal Video

Blown away, I was, by this delightful video of itinerant musical sages struggling with their practice. There was I imagining that I must be the world’s worst Shakta, so weak and flimflam is my practice. However, now I see that even these sainted people (not that I’m projecting or anything) have their spiritual struggles too. Fair gives you comfort, it does.

Sunday Street

Come and join me and a whole host of other local traders tomorrow, Sunday 04 November 2018, at Yokosuka’s one and only SUNDAY STREET!

I’ll be manning the Tarot stall – of course! – and if you’re early you might just snag a place on my timetable, however on the last two occasions I was fully-booked within the first 30 minutes. Start time for the event is 11.00 and closing time is 18:00.

This is our third event, a real grass-roots community bash, complete with all manner of food from locally-grown organic seasonal veggies to candy floss and pile-em-high U.S.-style burgers, second-hand stalls, accessories, workshops, a sake sommelier, and six whole hours of funky tunes played by an array of insanely-talented DJs. Sad and disappointed? You won’t be, unless you miss it. See you there!

Tokyo Tarot Rocks My World

It’s official: My Tarot students are the absolute BEST! They are funny, insightful, intelligent and supportive. Thank you to everyone who came to the second lesson yesterday, and see you soon I hope.

 

Greater Power Ritual

The Ritual for Greater Magick Power

Sometimes I feel like the Gallery of Magick reads my diary, but actually, that’s not true. What I really feel is that the Gallery of Magick reads my mind before I’ve even written anything in my diary. And then I realise that we live in a universe of synchronicity and so of COURSE the Gallery of Magick would publish a blog post on how to boost your magic ability. And of course I just have to do it.

You have to have the GoM’s 72 Angels of Magick book, but that’s  worth buying in any event. Also, it takes a long time to set up – it took me about 5 hours, but then I’m slow, because with magic (unlike pretty much anything else I do) I like to check, check and check again, cos just in case I accidentally manifest a horny-backed toad instead of a Lambo. Not that I’d really want either but hey, it’s just an example. Then, it takes 11 days of regular practice to complete this ritual, which means 20 minutes to half an hour of undisturbed time every day, something that quite a lot of people might struggle with, I imagine. Luckily my family are totally on board with my stranger-than-the-average hobbies.

If you want to have a go yourself then by all means. Just click the link above and, as if by magic, be taken to the blog post and accompanying PDF. I’ve done a LOT of GoM rituals and by George they work: if you only ever buy one book on magic or manifesting, let it be Zannia Blaise’s 72 Sigils of Power.
