It has been a long time since I have written a Tarot-themed blog post, and I felt that this would be a perfect time for me to do so.

Between the fact that I AM a professional Psychic that uses Tarot Decks (as well as Divination and Oracle Card Decks); the fact that clients come to me for Readings with the Sacred Tarot, more than any other Psychic Service I offer; my primary Email address being thetarotman@excite.com; my use of “thetarotman” as the screen name of virtually every Website of which I AM a member; as well as a rather large collection of Tarot Decks (as well as Divination and Oracle Card Decks), the Tarot is a constant in my life.

However, just like there are men that do not think about sex every second of every day (yes, they do exist, and I happen to be one of them), I do not think about the Tarot every second of every day, either.  However, the Tarot has a unique way of Re-Minding me of its presence.

Those of you that also follow or read my other blog, “This Gay Man’s Life…” may recall my post about meeting “Mommy Man,” specifically Jerry Mahoney, author of Mommy Man: How I Went from Mild-Mannered Geek to Gay Superdad.”

Aside from the fact that I was excited to purchase yet another autographed copy of a book, but I was also excited to meet, in person, a WordPress blogger turned published author.

That week was an especially Prosperous week for me, and when I had learned that it was a strong possibility that Barnes & Noble Booksellers would be closing its doors, sooner than later, I splurged and purchased four books, which is rare for me, especially without a coupon.

Shortly before making my way downstairs to the registers I found 365 Tarot Spreads: Revealing the Magic in Each Day, by Sasha Graham (Copyright 2014, Llewellyn Publications, Woodbury, Minnesota).  Or, rather, it found me.

Those of you that have had Readings with me, you know that I rarely use Tarot Spreads in my professional Readings.  I simply lay the Cards out as I AM Divinely Guided.

However, from time to time, it makes a difference to use a specific arrangement of Cards to help guide the way.

During my Summer Solstice “Divine Prosperity Event,” on Friday, June 20, 2014, 7-10PM, I used the “Litha Midsummer Solstice Spread,” which happens (not-at-all coincidentally) to be dated on June 20 in the book.  For the Spread, I used the Mystical Cats Tarot,” by Lunaea Weatherstone, illustrated by Mickie Mueller (Copyright 2014, Llewellyn Publications, Woodbury, Minnesota).

Some of you have been waiting VERY patiently for that video.  I just sent a text message to my tech person, and Goddess Willing, it shall be on my YouTube page, as well as part of a future blog post, before the conclusion of Summer, and the beginning of Autumn.

Interestingly enough, my favorite part of the book is the index of Spreads.

Now, I shall list the categories, from the “Index of Spreads” as well as a Spread from that particular category, and its corresponding date.  Here we go…

 

Animals–“Feline Mystery Spread” (October 29)

Cinema–“Ghost-Hunting Spread” (in honor of the motion picture Ghostbusters, June 8)

Creativity–“T. S. Eliot’s Poets & Writers Spread” (May 9)

Fairy Tales–“Sleeping Beauty’s Peaceful Night’s Sleep Spread” (February 7)

Finance and Legal Matters–“Get Out of Debt Spread” (January 8; perfect for Mr. Prosperity’s Birthday!)

General Advice–“Gratitude Spread” (January 11)

Goddess and God–“Hecate’s Shamanic Spread” (November 16)

Grief, Sadness, and Moving Forward–“Forgiveness Spread” (September 11)

Health and Well-Being–“Weight Loss/Gain Spread (January 16)

Holidays–“Bastille Day Start a Revolution Spread” (July 14, of course)

Home and Family–“Honor Your Ancestors Spread” (August 18; why, that is tomorrow!)

Literacy–“Alice Hoffman’s Practical Magic Spread” (March 16)

Love and Romance–“Four Chambers of the Heart Spread” (July 9)

Mythical Creatures–“Mermaid Magic Spread” (January 9)

Nature–“Collision of the Elements Spread (February 9)

Occult and Esoteric–“Marie Laveau’s Voodoo Spread” (September 10)

Out of this World–“Qualities of Leo” (July 23; and yes, Ms. Graham has a “Qualities” Spread for all the Signs of the Western Zodiac, and all the Planets, excluding the Sun.  Go figure!)

Self-Knowledge and Personal Growth–“Chartres Sacred Labyrinth/Higher Self Spread” (October 17)

Sensual–“Tantric Kundalini Spread” (January 18)

Spiritual–“The Noble Eightfold Path Spread” (April 13)

Tarot–“A. E. Waite’s Boaz & Jachin Spread” (October 2)

Work and Career–“Grow Your Business Spread” (April 21)

 

If you purchase a copy of 365 Tarot Spreads: Revealing the Magic in Each Day, by Sasha Graham, I would love to hear which Spread is your favorite, as well as your experiences with the book.  I would especially love to hear from professional Psychics who use the Sacred Tarot, as well as people learning the Sacred Tarot, regarding this book, and your use of it.

Thank you, one and all, for honoring who I AM and what I do.  In Ms. Graham’s honor, I wish all of you “Happy Casting!”9780738740386_p0_v2_s260x420

Approximately two months ago, I reblogged for the second time a blog post by Peaches, entitled “Dear Fellow Bloggers.”

What she wrote about “likes” is exactly how I have felt about “Likes” on Facebook, and on other social media networks, too.

In case you were unable to read it previously, here it is again:

http://alateralplunge.wordpress.com/2012/07/21/dear-fellow-bloggers/

Reading and rereading this blog post, was very illuminating for me.

I have nothing against “Likes.”  And I have noticed a few things about the people who click “Like.”

For example, on my Facebook page, the ones that honor me and my WordPress blogs the most, are the ones that click “Like” when they do not have the time to properly comment, and/or not sure how to comment at that moment.

Holly Troy is a perfect example of this.  Since the very beginning, more than two years ago, every time she clicks “Like” on my blog, it is because she does not have the time, at that moment, to properly comment.

Also, I have seen this with other followers of “This Is Who I AM” over the years, too.  So far, my other WordPress blog, “This Gay Man’s Life…” is still too new, and has not experienced this, at the present time.

By the way, please visit Holly Troy’s WordPress blog.  It is http://holly-troy.com

Do I hate “likes?”  No.  However, I find that clicking “Like” is an exercise in mindlessness.  This world has become so very abbreviated, with people taking “vacays,” having “mani-pedis,” and texting “thx,” or “how r u.”

Clicking “Like” has become an acceptable form of saying “thank you,” or “you are wonderful,” or “this gives me a lot to think about.”

I do not require that anyone who comments on my blog, or in my life, for that matter, be an orator, or a  writer, or have ever been published or have any degree of eloquence.

My Divinely Orchestrated stroke has opened up many Psychic Centers in my Mind, and I often “hear” something behind a compliment.  I receive many compliments for my writing, and sometimes, someone gives me a compliment and I “hear” something like, “I wish I could write like that.”

Ladies and gentlemen, blog followers and blog readers, there is a book that has helped me emotionally heal, and I often reread it.  In fact, I AM currently rereading it now.  It is The Goddess’ Guide to Love: Timeless Secrets to Divine Romance, by Margie Lapanja (Copyright 1999, Conari Press (now Red Wheel/Weiser), Newburyport, Massachusetts).

When I first read this book, I thought, “I wish I had written this.”  However, I AM clear that it was a part of Ms. Lapanja’s Divine Life Purpose to write this book.

So, please, know that when someone comments on my blog, it is NOT a requirement that one be incredibly eloquent.  Some of you may find this difficult to believe, but there are moments when I AM far from eloquent.

Nonetheless, if you click “Like” on my Facebook pages, my WordPress blog posts, etc., thank you.  And, I may not take it seriously.

I remember, last year, I published a post about my experience being stuck in an elevator in my apartment building.  A fellow professional Lightworker clicked “Like” on Facebook, and I was confused as to why she did that.

As a result, I asked her if she was clicking “Like” because it was my blog post, because she loved the photo of an elevator I found on the Internet, or because I was stuck in an elevator?  She never answered my question.

And frankly, one of my mottoes in life is “assume nothing,” hence my question.  I really had no idea why she clicked “Like.”

Another example of the mindlessness of clicking “Like,” is the following: Recently, someone on a private Facebook page to which I belong clicked “Like” in response to the announcement that the mother of one of the other members had Transitioned.  I, of course, asked this member why he clicked “Like.”

His response was that it was his way of showing support.

My Primary Psychic Guide, David, immediately said, “Robert, shut up,” while my other Primary Psychic Guide, Anthony, immediately said–at the same time–, “Robert, calm down.”  Oh, my GODDESS!  The mindlessness that I encountered with that one statement was amazing!

Now, let me tell you about this person.  He is a good guy, very intelligent and very creative.  However, I was astounded at the sheer idiocy of his statement.  That people would click “Like” as a way of expressing compassion for another’s bereavement, was amazing to me.

And yes, this is an extreme example, but, again, it shows me the sheer mindlessness I have observed on numerous occasions on Facebook, and on other social media networks.  It astounds me how mindless people can be, especially regarding “Like.”

Think for a moment.  How long does it take, really, to click “Like.”  Can you imagine someone investing so little time and energy in having a relationship with you, be it romantic, platonic, or professional?  I do not know about you, but this bitch (yeah, me, Robert Alvarez, King Bitch) deserves a whole lot more than that!

Yes, some would think that is because I wrote the comment, but then they click “Like” on EVERY comment EVERYONE writes on their Facebook page.

I think I have written more than enough about this topic.

On a lighter note, and something that I AM very happy about (and NO, I AM not going to “Like’ it, especially since I have disabled “Likes” on this blog post), let me acknowledge my newest blog followers to “This Is Who I AM.”  They are: “earth scientist,” “MuseBoxx,” “erniekeep,” “diplomatebidemi,” “moonblossomcrys,” “ahoychrispineda,” and “meadowfaery13.”  Thank you for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May your f0llowing “This Is Who I AM” bring you Divine Joy, Divine Riches and Divine Success.

And for those of you already following and reading “This Is Who I AM,” thank you so much for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May we continue to live lives Divinely Abundant with Prosperity, Protection and Peace.

Yes, this is how I feel about "Likes."

Yes, this is how I feel about “Likes.”

Once more, I have the honor and pleasure of being back at the META Center New York, for their “July Psychic & Healing Day Event.”  At this point, I have lost count of how many times I have been at META Center New York, giving Readings, as well as conducting Goddess Energy Healing Treatments.

Once again, I shall be available for Consultations and Goddess Energy Healing Treatments, for those of you that speak English, and for those who speak Spanish.

Before I go any further, let me give all of you the logistical information about this wonderful “Psychic & Healing Day Event.”

Also, this is the last Psychic and Healing Fair is having at this physical location.  META Center New York is now being Divinely Guided to create and manifest a new physical location.

I do not recall if the staff of META Center have publicly stated the reason, and if not, I do not wish to do so.  Nonetheless, it is time for a new physical location for the META Center.  Where it shall be, no news, yet.

At this Psychic and Healing Event, I shall be available for the following:

 

Goddess Readings (with Cards)

Goddess Readings (without Cards)

Thank you, one and all, for honoring who I AM and what I do.  Have a wondrous weekend.July-2014-Psychic-Fair-Flyer-4

Last night, was one of those nights, that I felt so happy with my level of Prosperity, with how much of a difference I made in others’ lives, with my connection to the Goddesses and Angels, that if, Goddess Forbid, I had died, I would have left the Physical Realm quite complete.

This past Wednesday, July 16, 2014, I had the honor and pleasure of giving Readings at Ugly Kitchen in the East Village section of Manhattan, NYC, to raise funds for Maya’s Hope (SEEhttp://thetarotman.wordpress.com/2014/07/12/fun-in-the-village-with-robert-alvarez-the-psychic-witch-and-mayas-hope/) and the cutie pies it serves.

First, I AM most thankful for my personal Goddess, Auset, Who Is more commonly known as Isis, for instilling within me that ability to Divine, for Being the Queen of Healers, for Being the Mistress of Magick, for Being the Lady of Words of Power.

I AM most thankful for Ms. Maya Rowencak, Founder and President of Maya’s Hope, for having a wonderful “Fun in the Village” event to raise funds for all the cutie pies that Maya’s Hope serves, as well as giving me the opportunity to meet new clients and make a difference in the lives of all the people who came to me for Readings.

I AM most thankful for all of my clients, students, and friends, who spread the word, and all the ways they did so, be it a forward, share, retweet, etc.  Also, I AM most thankful for my first client of the night, who has been using my Psychic Services for more than five years now.

I AM most thankful for Jasmine, one of the many wonderful Maya’s Hope volunteers, who was my assistant for the night, and make sure I had plenty of beverages (those of you who have had Readings with me know I do a lot of talking during my Readings, but I digress).

I AM especially thankful for the staff of Ugly Kitchen, who were genuinely nice, considerate and more than happy to be of service to all of us who were in attendance.  As well as for the multi-orgasmic beef brisket I had for dinner.  Oh, my God!  (And you know when I say [or, in this case, write] “Oh, my God!” instead of “Oh, my Goddess!” it is a big deal!)

I AM most thankful for all the clients who had Readings with me last night, and I AM especially thankful for the (if my memory serves me correct), four clients who had their very first Readings with me.

It has always been a HUGE honor for me, when someone not only trusts me enough, but has so much faith in his or her Divine Guidance to take the plunge, as it were, and have his or her first Reading experience with me.

There is so much more that I could share about that truly wondrous night, but I shall keep it short and sweet.  Although I shall share that some of you could have won a free one-hour Reading with me, which was one of the raffle prizes, but I digress.

Before I close, I wish to thank my newest blog followers.  They are: “Raluca Stoica,” “Chasing23,” and THE “Flossie Benton Rogers.”  Which means I have officially lost count of how many published authors are following “This Is Who I AM.”  To all three of you, thank you so much fo honoring who I AM and what I do.  May you receive “nothing but the best” for following this blog.

And for those of you already following or reading my blog, may the Divine Great Mystery continue to Bless all of us with Divine Protection, Divine Prosperity and Divine Peace.

For those of you that were unable to make it this past Wednesday, July 16, 2014, and wish to make a donation to thecutie pies that Maya’s Hope serves, please visit http://mayashope.org.

The Lotus, one of the most Sacred Symbols, and for Maya's Hope, a Re-Minder of the Power of Hope.

The Lotus, one of the most Sacred Symbols, and for Maya’s Hope, a Re-Minder of the Healing and Prospering Power of Hope.

Ladies and gentlemen, today is Tuesday, July 15, 2014, and the time is approximately 6:09PM.  There are some updates and revisions to this blog post, which is why I AM re-publishing it.  If you have any questions, please submit a comment, or Email me at thetarotman@excite.com.  Thank you, and Goddess Bless.

 

As Mr. Prosperity, I AM crystal clear that Mother Moon (or, rather, Goddess) Is the one and only real Source of my Divine Prosperity, of my Divine Financial Supply.

For some of you it may be God, the Universe, Spirit, Higher Power, the Divine Great Mystery, Universal Life Source Energy, etc.  For me, it is the Goddess, and given that today is the date of the Full Moon in Capricorn, today for me, Mother Moon Is it!

I have noticed over the years, that every time I looked for an opportunity to receive Money and Prosperity, via my Psychic Services, I never found one.  However, when I was open and receptive to Divine Providence, and lived my life well, and ongoingly practiced what I teach in my “Divine Prosperity Events,” as well as in my private Prosperity Classes, new avenues, channels, doors and points of income would manifest in my life.

This post is about one of those opportunities, and it also gives me the opportunity to help other people, too.

Recently, a fellow professional Lightworker, asked me if I was available on a specific date.  I told her that I was, and then she put me in touch with the person organizing the event.

And all this, via Twitter.  I think this was the first time that Twitter led me to a new avenue of Prosperity, and can help me help others, too.

Next Wednesday, July 16, 2014, 6-9PM, at a place called Ugly Kitchen, I shall have the honor and pleasure of conducting Readings as a way of making a difference to an organization called Maya’s Hope.

Ugly Kitchen is located at 103 1st Avenue, between East 6th and East 7th Streets, in the East Village area of Manhattan, NYC.  One receives two free drinks with each $15 ticket, and aside from Psychic Readers, the event shall have a raffle, prizes and magical surprises.  I have a feeling a portion of my Magick shall be a part of these magical surprises.

Maya’s Hope is an organization whose mission is to help “disadvantaged children living in poverty and helps provide hope by instilling value and purpose in each child.”

At this special event, I AM giving short Readings for a donation of any amount.  The Readings shall be $10 for ten minutes.  As per my Divine Guidance, I shall be available for Goddess Readings, Angel Readings, and Readings with the Sacred Tarot. Those of you that have Readings with me

Those of you that have Readings tomorrow night, you shall have the option of paying for your Readings with cash, credit cards or debit cards.

For more info, you can visit http://mayashope.org or call 347-699-6292.

If you want to buy tickets, there is a limited quantity remaining.  You can do so by visiting http://mayashope.org/event/funinthevillage/

Those of you that have had private Readings with me know all too well that these occurrences happen rarely in my professional world.  In fact, I doubt those of you that have had private Readings with me recall the last time that I had the opportunity to offer such a low, Divinely Discounted fee for my Readings.  Frankly, neither do I.

So, if you happen to be in the Lower East Side area of Manhattan, NYC next Wednesday, July 16, 2014, 6-9PM, and you want to have a short, but Divinely Discounted Reading with me, Robert Alvarez, the Psychic Witch, and help other people at the same time (for those of you who want to score brownie points for getting into Heaven, this is an EXCELLENT opportunity to do so!), then I cannot over-recommend you come to Ugly Kitchen and have a Reading with me, or any of the other Psychics who shall be there.

Before I close, I wish to acknowledge Mr. Maya Rowencak, Founder and President of Maya’s Hope, for giving me the honor and pleasure of following my Bliss, and helping others in the process.

To all of you who follow and read my blog, thank you for honoring who I AM and what I do.funinvite-1

I began working with The Angelic Realms in January, 2004.

Although I knew about Angels and Archangels before then, I did not officially begin working with these Celestial Beings until January, 2004, a month before I led my very first “Angelic Realms Course.”

The primary purpose of that Course was to teach the participants how to give accurate, effective, and insightful Readings using the Healing with the Angels Oracle Cards, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D.  The secondary purpose was to help the participants deepen their connection with their respective Angels.

I enjoyed leading this Course, as did the participants (well, all but one of them, but I digress), and it was refreshing for me to teach a System of Divination other than Tarot.

In the more than a decade since, I have worked with many Angelic Beings, and several Archangels, but I do not recall if I ever worked with Archangel Asrael.

Archangel Azrael Is also known as the “Angel of Death.”  When someone dies, Archangel Azrael helps him or her understand what he or she is experiencing.  He Is also the “Grief Counselor of the Archangels,” helping the people who are alive understand and heal, as well as move from grief to Joy, quickly, powerfully, peacefully.

Recently, I learned that a dear friend, who was also a professional Psychic and a published author, died.  I found out that she died between two to three weeks after her Transition.

Am I sad that she is dead?  No.  I know that she is no longer in pain.

However, I AM angry that she did not life her life more fully.  I AM angry that she did not use everything she knew to help her heal.  And I AM especially angry that she gave up on life.

The day after I learned of this friend’s Transition, I saw the faces of Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston float into my Mind.  I knew in that moment, that the Metaphysical cause for their Transition also applied to my friend.

I know that I was always harder on her when she participated in my Metaphysical Classes and Courses, because I knew that she was playing small in her life, and I knew that she could play and BE so much bigger.  And for a time, she was.

And then things started happening in her life.  She forgot her Power, she forgot her Strength.  And she returned to a life of pain.

And so, with that, I share with all of you this letter, because I need to do this.  And perhaps some of you need that this, too.

As I teach the participants of my Metaphysical Classes, especially my “Divine Prosperity Events,” if working with a Celestial Being for the first time, introduce yourself to Him or Her.  Let Him or Her know why you are reaching out to Him or Her.

Here we go…

 

Dear Archangel Azrael:

My name is Robert Alvarez, and I AM writing you this letter because I wish to work with You today.

Recently, a dear friend died.  Well, not too recently, as it was two to three weeks ago, but I only found out this past Monday, as in the day-before-yesterday. 

I AM angry that she died, and I AM angry that no one in her life informed me, as well as the three mutual friends that she and I shared.

Also, I AM angry that she gave up on life, and allowed herself to replay the tapes that left her in financial hardship, physical pain, and emotional turmoil.

Nonetheless, I cannot be of Spiritual Service if I allow myself to remain angry.  I ask You, Angel of Death, to help me heal.  To help me understand what happened and why, and to extend compassion and forgiveness to those involved with my friend’s estate that need to receive compassion and forgiveness.

I also ask that you assist my friends, the ones that are alive and with whom my friend and I shared Birthday and Holiday Celebrations, to heal, and also move from grief to Joy, quickly, powerfully, peacefully.

Thank You, Archangel Azrael, for reading my letter, understanding my Mind and Loving my Heart.

Sincerely yours,

Robert Alvarez.

 

And yes, ladies and gentlemen, I do feel lighter.  And certainly more at Peace.

Before I close, I wish to acknowledge my newest blog followers.  They are: “affiliatedmindset” and “christinesnowdon.”  Thank you, both, very much for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May you receive Divine Inspiration and Divine Insight from following “This Is Who I AM.”

And for those of you who already follow or read my blog, thank you, so much, for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May you continue to receive Divine Love, Divine Light, Divine Prosperity, Divine Protection and Divine Peace from following and reading “This Is Who I AM.”Evelyn_De_Morgan_-_Angel_of_Death

This year, 2014, “The Year of Powerful, Transformative Change,” I have been Divinely Guided to lead my “Divine Prosperity Events,” which are my group Prosperity Classes, around the times of the Solstices and Equinoxes.

The first “Divine Prosperity Event” that I led this year was on Thursday, March 20, 2014, which was the date of the Vernal Equinox (as well as the date the Sun entered Aries, Sign of New Beginnings).

Last night, Friday, June 20, 2014, was the night before the Summer Solstice, which occurred today, Saturday, June 21, 2014, at approximately 6:51AM.  In Western Astrological terms, this is the date when the Sun enters Cancer, Sign of the Home, the Family and the Mother (human and Divine).

My next one shall be around Monday, September 22, 2014, which is the date the Sun shall enter Libra.  I rarely lead “Divine Prosperity Events” on Monday nights, so I need to look at which date is most Astrologically and Numerologically Auspicious, but I already have an idea.

In the meantime, here is a video showing a portion of what I discussed on the evening of Thursday, March 20, 2014, between 7-10PM, during my first “Divine Prosperity Event” of “The Year of Powerful, Transformative Change.”

It is a bit raw, but the Energy and the taste of Prosperity is most certainly there!

Here is the link http://youtu.be/aQmu20tnC6w

Now, I AM aware that the video quality is a bit raw, but I have already seen and listened to a portion of the video from last night’s “Divine Prosperity Event,” and the audio and video quality is much better.

Before I close, I wish to acknowledge my newest blog follower, “affiliatedmindset.”  Thank you for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May you receive Divine Love, Divine Light, Divine Prosperity and Divine Peace from following “This Is Who I AM.”

And for those of you already following and reading my blog, thank you for honoring who I AM and what I do.  May we continue to live lives rich in Divine Joy, Divine Riches, and Divine Success.goldeneggs
