Tarot Readings for Self-Empowerment

nice to meet you.

Hi! I'm Chinggay Labrador and I live in Manila, Philippines. I'm a freelance writer and yoga + meditation teacher. I read tarot for people too.

Practical Magic is born out of a mix of all my interests. I started reading the tarot when I was 18 and used it mostly as a way to tell the future (it didn’t work!).

I came back to the cards later on in life, as I got into yoga and meditation. First, because the illustrations were cool. Second, because I learned that the tarot’s visual symbols could help me connect to my intuition and develop self-awareness.

As I got to know myself better through my tarot practice, I discovered that I’d become better equipped to tackle my issues more mindfully. At the same time, reading helped me find deep, soul level healing too.

MAGIC DOESN'T HAVE TO BE OUT OF OUR GRASP. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE WOOWOO TO GET IT.

When used in a structured and smart way, tarot cards can help us get the answers we need so we can start living better and more meaningfully everyday.

Practical Magic helps you cut through your cobwebs so you understand yourself better and open yourself up to a world of opportunity.

I hope Practical Magic inspires you to spark all sorts of magic in your life!
