– Is it money? – Oh my God! – I don’t know why she put this in! I have a dear friend to Pero Like, Andrea! – Hi.
– She’s going to be reading our tarot cards. So, I saw that she did this
exact thing for Lady Legs, so I was like, hey, you
should do this for Pero Like. – So the way that I like to do tarot, I really like to connect
with my ancestors. And when I do tarot with somebody else, I like to call on their
ancestors to come help, too. And so the way that I see it, it’s almost like a conversation between my ancestors and your
ancestors talking to us, through our instincts or
the cards that we choose. I don’t like to think of it as like you’re influencing the future, I like to think more of it as, you’re getting to understand
how you’re feeling in the present moment, so
that when a situation arises, or when the next thing
comes down the line, you’ll be able to respond
to it a lot better. I like to empower people and give people the guidance and the tools to be able to confront whatever they’re facing. So, what’s happening in your life, Maya? – The only place that I
don’t feel confident in, that I’m learning, is love. So, if love comes up, cool,
I’ll receive that message. – Besides rich and famous, what else is gonna happen
con Gadiel Del Orbe? – I wanna do mine about love, can we focus on my love? – Ooh, OK!
– I just feel like my love life is always
super, like, scattered. That’s my own energy,
’cause I’m so work-focused. Do you know what I mean? So, let me know, spirits. – [Andrea] First one is the past. – [Gadiel] Hmm…The past. Dos de lanza.
– I’m gonna say that when you were younger, or especially, I know that you were in the military, and I feel like you were
always this pillar of strength that people would come to and seek advice and solace and peace from. Maybe your life was a
little dramatic, chaotic, and it wasn’t always like you felt that you yourself had a strong
enough ground to stand on, so you had to find that
ground in other people. So maybe you had like a mentor
or like a father figure, or some type of masculine
energy in your life that really helped you stay strong and gave you a sense of self,
maybe it was your family, maybe it was like a community member. – Well, partly my stepdad, yeah, my stepdad was always like,
he was the masculine guy in the house, and I
always looked up to him. – Yeah.
– You know, I always wanted to be like him, you know what I mean? I was also the guy that
was out of the street, you know what I mean? In the block, there’s always problems. I feel bad, ’cause it was younger guys, that they looked up to me, and I didn’t do good thing in the hood. Things like, “Oh, when I
was gonna get initiated “I thought about you.” To get initiated to a gang, I thought, what would Gadiel do? That’s not the guy that I
wanna portray to everybody, you know? I was like a bad impression
to these younger guys that were coming on up, you know? Even though I saw myself as somebody that wanted to study, wanted
something great in life. But now, I make people
laugh, you know what I mean? – And that’s a part of your history, and I don’t think that’s something that you need to be
ashamed of or push away. – Yeah.
– Like you’re showing it now. It’s something that brought you to the point that you’re at today. Oh! – What’d that mean, why’d
you make that noise? – Well, I’m doing like a really basic, bare-bones past, present, future. – Yeah.
– And so, the past shows a lot of conflict.
– Mm. – If you look at the card, it’s literally somebody lying, deceased,
on a battlefield. – Yep, that’s me, that’s my love life. – The swords, they represent air, intellect, mentality. And so you can almost think of it as kind of like a prison
made of your own making. – Hmmm…
– Somebody who’s trying to walk
in-between a bunch of swords. So, what I wanna say, is that, it being inverted, both reflects the idea that, usually, this is more so internal, you have to acknowledge that there is an exchange of energies. Not that you’re, like,
the perpetrator per se, but like there is some accountability that needs to be taken on your half, on the relationship-like love spectrum. – Yeah, well I totally
know, I’m the cold person. I live like, in this, like, cage thing, I’m like, “You don’t wanna come in here.” I’m like, “What are you doing in here?” I mean, it’s fine, and I’m in my cage, and I’m like, “If you’re
in here, that’s fine, “that’s cool, you can totally stay.” But, you know, you also need to live out of the cage sometimes. – Hmmm…
So, seven of spears is a fire card, and it
represents a temple. Maybe growing up you
had this very pure idea of what a relationship looked like, maybe an idealized form
that became a safe place for you to either escape
or fantasize about. It was almost as if, when times got rough, there was this connection that you had with the idea of love,
whether it be for yourself or for another person, or for
somebody that didn’t exist. Helped keep you stay hopeful. Was that correct, Maya? – Yeah, yeah girl! (laughs) – You wanna talk about it a little? – This is about love. (laughs) There was a person who’s
definitely a safe spot for me, that I would come back to when things are kind of at a low with my love life. It’s never gonna work out with them, the time has passed, but I do find myself being comfortable in that space. – And it’s funny because
this is a time before war, so it’s almost like a rest stop, it’s a place that people would come to because they saw it as
a safe neutral ground. Ooh, speaking of today, ooh! – La muerte, trece la muerte. First of all, 13 is not a good number, yo. – 13 is a great number,
contrary to popular belief, it was actually like a female
empowerment kind of like, wiccan, feminine goddess number, that got tainted across masculinity and generations who were
like, “Screw women taking “power and medicine, and
we’re taking this number “and making it evil.” In the grand scheme of things, La Muerte isn’t that bad of a card. Because La Muerte represents– – Why are you saying
“that bad of a card”, yo? (Andrea laughs)
– So this– – Present, La Muerte, no! (laughs) This is done. (both laugh) – Take all that, what you just said, and apply it to what you’re doing today. La Muerte is about death,
it’s about rebirth, it’s about ending the circle. It’s about putting a dot
at the end of a sentence. – Mm-hmm.
– It’s about closure. So I feel like, you opening
up about these things, acknowledging them, you knowing
that it’s part of your past and not something that you wanna continue towards your future, is a very accurate representation of this card. It’s almost saying like,
“Thank you for giving me “the skills and tools that I have today. “But the practices and
actions are something “that I’m no longer gonna pick up “and necessarily do.” And so, maybe this is
something that’s taken a big presence in your
life, thinking about, “What am I doing with
the rest of my career? “What am I doing with the rest of my life? “What impression am I leaving on people? “So that I’m doing something good “for the world and the universe.” – So it’s just like this is
gonna be a defining moment, like the past is dead,
this is gonna be a new me. A rebirth, the renaissance man. I am the renaissance man. (Andrea clears throat) – She just cleared her throat. – You know like a desert?
– Aha! (laughs) Oh my God.
– I mentioned the story represented in this one is about somebody who has to make
a perilous track between two kingdoms, one that has kind of been forgotten and abandoned
and is falling apart, and having to walk through decay and– – Mm-hmm.
– Just, um… Barren wasteland.
– Sounds like my love life right there. And I’m, for some reason, I’m not mad at it, like–
– No. (laughs) And that’s like, what I
also want to get across with this card–
– Yep. – It’s that there’s almost
like a journey aspect to it. – Yeah.
– It’s not so much like, this is your final destination. This moment, too, shall pass. – So, basically, my current
situation is a desert. – Your current situation
is the consequence of childhood traumas, past relationships and internal misgivings, to the point that you
have almost been left with very little internal resources. And so I feel like that’s the moment that you’re in right now, that you just have to, like, clean house, and make sure that your own
side of the street is clean and that your own house is in order. – Can I tell you something so weird? That is the second time
that somebody has said to make sure your side of
the street is clean, to me. And I’ve never heard that expression. – Yeah.
– Until, like, literally, this weekend,
and that’s the second time. And that’s something that I am doing, that I have been working on, I think, for the past three years. Is like, working and trying to take care of the land inside of my spirit. – [Maya] What is it? – Um…
– Oh, no, what is it? – It’s the three of swords, and this specific story, poor little guy– – Is that me?
– Actually got rejected from somebody that he
was really in love with, but they’re going to marry somebody else. So, they run out into
the middle of the forest, where nobody can hear them crying. – Oh, hell yeah.
(Andrea laughs) – Um…Yeah, it also represents this kind of solitude, quiet moment. – Mm-hmm.
– It represents a time where, like, you’re not too preoccupied with what’s happening outside of yourself, and you’re really focusing on building up internal fortitude and
rebuilding that trust, and safety and solidarity with
yourself and your desires, in a way that doesn’t have you coming back to that person who’s already claimed for. – Yeah, I feel very… In like a quiet place right now. I am rebuilding things with myself, to make sure the next person isn’t… I guess that I’m strong enough, and that I realize that I am good enough, and they’re gonna be good enough for me. Back then, I had zero
knowledge of my power, of like, who I am, the
self-love that I have, and I would go back to this person. – I was waiting for the million dollars. When am I getting the million dollars? – A ver, let’s see. Future card…Money. Whoa!
– Is it money? – It is money, kind of! So, diez is always a
number of like, the finale, the ending, the kind of, like, culmination of all the hard work that you’ve been putting in throughout the year, and it represents
celebration, party, abundance. And so, cups represent water, emotions. And so, a ten of cups, I would say, is that you’re working
on path towards something that will make you feel really fulfilled, that will make you feel
like you’ve actually completed your mission in life. Maybe it’s like a project connected to helping kids from the hood. You’re on track towards something great. No matter what it is, when we’re thinking about how you’re feeling personally today, like, imagine that across,
like, over ten years. That same feeling of
being able to look back and have this feeling of, like, joy and fulfillment and peace, is what I feel like this
card is trying to get across. So this swords card is The Empress. So this can mean two things.
– Mm-hmm. – One, it can mean you’re
a strong, independent lady, who doesn’t need no man.
– Mm-hmm. – Who is really building her empire– – Mm-hmm!
– And working on… Really that internal garden–
– Mm-hmm! – Of wealth and resources. The other interpretation is that there is an empress and an emperor. What this is trying to tell you is that with having done the internal work and healing the past, and recognizing what it’s done to your present, you’ll start seeing plants bloom, you’ll start seeing things… This femininity and this fertility– – Mm-hmm.
– And this abundance of the Earth, kind of starting
to show its face to you, and hug you and embrace you. And it’s reminding you that, like, you have so much to offer. So, either way, you need to open up. – Basically, where he at? Is what I wanna know. – What the (beep) is that? What kind of disaster is this card? – It is not the worst thing
that could happen to you– – They’re dragons attacking a castle! (Andrea laughs) – It’ dragons attacking
each other on a castle. – Mm, OK.
– Slight difference. (laughs) I, personally, love this card. The card really closely
identifies with the idea of change is inevitable, and just because something crumbles, doesn’t necessarily mean
that you’re destroyed. It represents a blessing in disguise. – So does this mean
something bad’s gonna happen? – No…
Not necessarily. Uh…(laughs) No, what this means, is internal conflict. It means yin and yang battling it out. It means that you have a
pretty complex journey still, in the languages of love, for you to figure out
what you’re leaving behind and what you’re trying to find. – I just feel like, I’m
learning and I’m like, OK, I’m ready! And the universe is like, nope! – But I’m saying is that, like, maybe something that in the past you considered to be a terrible thing, will actually be happening,
and it might actually be something that’s really positive for you. You can’t have this doomsday mentality, is what this card tries to get across, because you can always
find the silver lining, no matter how tricky the situation. – That’s an intense card.
– It’s a little tense. – All of the other love
readings that I’ve gotten, like in the past, have just been like, “Just be patient!” Just be patient, this is like so specific. It’s confirming, too, that I have had these things in my past, that I have seen, like, it’s a cycle, like,
it just keeps going, and I just have been
putting off dealing with it, so, I don’t know, this is great! Thank you so much. – Of course, I’m happy too. – I thought it was dope, I feel like it’s therapeutic in a way. And Mares is such a person
that has this energy that you feel comfortable in sharing. And I shared something I never
shared before in my life, like the whole thing
happen in New York city. This is the first time I’ve
shared this with anybody. And I just, I just remembered this! But that was great, I feel like it was so dope and so fun. – The messages are really great, I love the cards, they really feel like, I don’t feel like I’m
walking away feeling like, “Aw, man!” I feel like there is hope. Thank you, I love you.
– I love you too. That’s great, that was beautiful. (gypsy style music)
