IT’S written in the cards. Fervent prayers will be needed for what lies ahead, says fortune teller Gloria Yasay, better known as Ate Glo.
We are in for tumultuous times — nothing new perhaps. If Ate Glo’s predictions come true, elections will push through next year, but only if a majority of people will demand so.
As divined from the tarot cards, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will finish her term in 2010. A man will succeed her as the country’s next president. Ate Glo warns though that the presence of a card bearing the likeness of the Grim Reaper signifies that he will experience great pain, illness, or maybe even death. (The Death Card though does not always portend a literal death as it can be a sign of cleansing, a promise to begin again on a clean slate.)
