Ever wondered what the future holds for you? Then take part in the centuries old tradition of tarot reading with Faye Alamango this Saturday Nov. 2 at Tigullio, and perhaps get some useful insights.
Tarot cards are used to gain insight into the future by asking questions, drawing cards and interpreting them. Their use in the occult goes back to 18th Century France and Italy where they would be used to make divine prophecies.
Today, tarot readings are used to give spiritual guidance and insight into potential future outcomes. Tarot reader and film producer Faye Alamango explains to Underground Sound how it works:
How can I get a reading?
It’s simple, anyone can come up to me and ask. I work on first come first serve.
What is your favorite type of client?
Ones that are open-minded and accept the truth.
What is the most surprising thing that came up in a reading?
The most surprising thing I cannot tell due to it’s graphic content. Basically the cops arrested their other half because of something the client refused to believe they did, but they found out that it was true.
Do you know things about the person before you read their cards?
Yes, there are times I already know what surrounds the client and what they have come to me for.
How did Tarot reading bring you to the film industry?
I came up with the idea of associating some of the major cards as characters that play a part as a character on film, but represent a lesson in life that we can all relate to.
Can anyone learn to read the cards?
Anyone can learn tarot, it’s like studying to be a doctor or a teacher, but it all boils down to how well you can implement it in the real world due to real life experience and not base it on studies through a book. Learning tarot through books and websites only gives you basic knowledge at the end of the day.
Faye will have a stand at Zombie Apocalypse from 9PM on Saturday.
This will be Faye’s final Tarot session before leaving the scene altogether. She will be offering readings at €10 a session, 50% off her usual rate.
