Astrologers, tarot readers, and feng shui masters in Metro Manila
Astrology and tarot, for us young adults, offer a comforting explanation of the world around us and what’s to come. They help us become more understanding of a particular quirk of a friend or act as a guide to answering some of our biggest questions in life, for example, why is our Scorpio friend so intense at times, or what’s in store for our careers.
Whenever life takes an unexpected turn, we sometimes turn to our zodiac readings or decks with a list of questions we want answered. But if you can’t quite trust your amateur divination skills, here are 8 astrologers, tarot readers and feng shui masters in Metro Manila offering readings from P999, to help you better #adult this year.
1. Practical Magic’s Chinggay Labrador – quirky tarot cards

For quirky, tarot readings with a deck that appeals to the millennial aesthetic, book a slot with Chinggay Labrador and her Practical Magic tarot cards. The cards are designed with quirky, modern imagery, while retaining traditional tarot themes of the classic Rider-Waite Smith Tarot cards, considered the most widely used deck among tarot readers.

Chinggay offers online or in-person readings. Heavy Lifting (P2,500), conducted in person, is a 75-minute session perfect for those who want a comprehensive 2020 forecast. Heads up for peeps who live in the north and south edges of Metro Manila though, as Chinggay only meets clients in the Greenhills area.
For those who like surprises or are not sure what to ask, we recommend the No Questions Asked (P2,000) online consultation – Chinggay will pull 12 cards out for you without any questions asked or being given any context, and interpret the readings as she sees fit. Be ready for her interpretations!

You’ve probably heard of Feng Shui Master Hanz Cua by now – the beaming, familiar figure who appears on our TV screens or radio to dispense feng shui wisdom, especially during Chinese New Year. Known for his expertise on several aspects of fortune telling, Master Cua’s can do everything from providing a general reading of horoscopes to conducting a space-cleansing ritual.
Master Cua also provides Ba Zi astrology (P10,000) readings, the Chinese version of astrology reading and Purple Star astrology (P28,000). These readings don’t come easy on the wallet, but they are one of the most comprehensive ones around. The former uses your birth information – date and time – to tell your fortune, while the latter consults the “12 palaces” in the practice of Purple Star to divinate different aspects of your life = life, sibling, spouse, children, wealth, health, travel, friends, profession, property, enjoyment, and parents.
