Marwar - - Contents -

ARIES

Al­though your fu­ture may seem dread­ful and bleak, do not worry. There’s light at the end of the tun­nel. A new be­gin­ning will take you out of the dead end. A heart-to­heart with your part­ner will help you eval­u­ate your re­la­tion­ship and step forth from the cross­roads into a new di­rec­tion. A ma­jor ca­reer change is on the cards next month. There’s a high pos­si­bil­ity of an in­ter­est­ing of­fer from an un­ex­pected source. At home, you will bal­ance mul­ti­ple re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and play nu­mer­ous roles to fam­ily and friends.

Tarot tip: Give your­self the power to say ‘No’ to com­mit­ments you are not ready for. By say­ing ‘yes’ while mean­ing ‘no’, you will only end up dis­ap­point­ing your­self and oth­ers. Gem­stone: Blue sap­phire Colour: Blue

TAURUS

At work, a cross­roads presents it­self. Each of the choices will take your ca­reer in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion, so weigh all your op­tions be­fore you take an­other step. There will be some petty gos­sip go­ing around about you; it is im­por­tant at this time not to get in­volved and take the moral high road. Iden­tify the peo­ple in­volved and dis­tance your­self from them. Travel is a pos­si­bil­ity in the near fu­ture. The com­ple­tion of a project is on the hori­zon. You may find your­self close to achiev­ing an aca­demic de­gree or cer­ti­fi­ca­tion.

Tarot tip: This is a good time to pur­sue a course or a skill to ex­pand your ca­reer prospects. Gem­stone: Cat’s eye Colour: White

GEMINI

Those of you who are sin­gle, there is wed­ding on the cards. Some of you will pur­chase a new home, while for oth­ers this is a time for a com­plete makeover of the home. There will be a good op­por­tu­nity for you to move to a new city for work or stud­ies. On the per­sonal front, there will be tur­bu­lence—dif­fer­ences of opin­ion may cause rifts be­tween you and some­one close. Stress lev­els will run high and take their toll on your body: mi­graines, high blood pres­sure and other com­plaints will emerge.

Tarot tip: Al­lot some time to self-care: spend time at a spa, prac­tise yoga, or take a walk in na­ture—what­ever suits you best. Gem­stone: Amethyst Colour: Vi­o­let

CAN­CER

New ideas will strike and in­spire you in the new year. It is as if the fog has sud­denly cleared around you. Those em­broiled in le­gal con­flicts will see swift res­o­lu­tion. This is a won­der­ful time to en­ter into new con­tracts and in­vest in prop­erty and stocks and shares. The turn of the year marks the end of old pat­terns and the be­gin­ning of new ones. Those of you whose jobs in­volve com­mu­ni­ca­tion will see in­cred­i­ble progress. Close friend­ships will blos­som. Cre­ative part­ner­ships will prove to be fruit­ful. Cre­ative en­deav­our will yield won­der­ful re­sults.

Tarot tip: Of­ten, the sum is greater than the parts. Team­work will be sat­is­fy­ing and pro­duc­tive. Gem­stone: Aqua­ma­rine Colour: Green

LEO

The be­gin­ning of this year will be marked by ma­te­rial hard­ships and fi­nan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties. Also, there will be a mind­set of ‘lack’ rather than ‘abun­dance’. De­spite the hard­ships, try to fo­cus on the big­ger pic­ture. It is im­por­tant to hold on to your con­fi­dence and be­lieve that vic­tory will come even­tu­ally, and that this is only a tem­po­rary sit­u­a­tion. On the per­sonal level, you will en­counter dif­fi­cult con­fronta­tions with some­one close. It is im­por­tant to be ob­jec­tive and not let any­one trig­ger your self-sen­si­tiv­ity in such sit­u­a­tions.

Tarot tip: Pick up a new skill or hobby— some­thing you have con­sid­ered but never ven­tured into be­fore. Push be­yond your com­fort zone and sur­prise your­self. Gem­stone: Car­nelian Colour: Or­ange

VIRGO

The year 2018 will bring a surge of en­ergy, spurring you into start­ing new projects and com­plet­ing them suc­cess­fully. Your com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion are ad­mirable and will serve you well. You will ex­pe­ri­ence many new things in the next two months. Fam­ily events will be at the fore­front. Hold off on ma­jor in­vest­ments and le­gal de­ci­sions un­til March. You will likely travel for plea­sure next month. A deep per­sonal rev­e­la­tion or epiphany will cause you to change your per­cep­tion in a life-chang­ing way.

Tarot tip: Ask your­self th­ese ques­tions and med­i­tate: What do you truly want? What/who in­flu­ences your thoughts and ac­tions? The an­swers will bring you great in­sights. Gem­stone: Gar­net Colour: Ma­roon

LIBRA

You have a num­ber of in­ter­est­ing av­enues to ex­plore, but all of them may not be suc­cess­ful. In your mind, you may ap­pre­ci­ate the beauty of dif­fer­ent op­tions, but try to keep one foot on the ground. Con­sult a prac­ti­cal, older fam­ily friend. He/she will guide and help you iden­tify the di­rec­tion you must take and how to man­i­fest your dreams into re­al­ity. On the health front, al­though there will be no ma­jor phys­i­cal con­cern, you will feel de­pleted of en­ergy and be un­able to achieve as much as you would like to.

Tarot tip: Spend time close to na­ture, prefer­ably near a lush for­est; or in­dulge in some hobby like gar­den­ing. Th­ese will up­lift your soul and bring your en­ergy lev­els up. Gem­stone: Emer­ald Colour: Emer­ald green

SCORPIO

Work part­ner­ships will lead to suc­cess. There will be an au­dit or ap­praisal at the work­place that will earn you recog­ni­tion and ac­co­lades. Fi­nan­cially, there will be an in­flux of money from ei­ther a raise at work, or a re­turn on a prior in­vest­ment. You have im­mense room for growth and will be given the op­por­tu­nity to take charge of a new project or a larger team. Be per­sis­tent in your ef­forts and you will be re­warded. On the per­sonal front, you will find that you have more time for your­self than be­fore. In­stead of mop­ing around and feel­ing lonely, seize this chance and make the most of it.

Tarot tip: Cre­ate a sanc­tu­ary in your home, bal­cony or gar­den to which you can re­treat on a daily ba­sis to med­i­tate, read and rest. Gem­stone: Citrine Colour: Yel­low

SAGIT­TAR­IUS

An un­ex­pected change of plan is likely to cause your well-planned projects to come to a halt. Re-eval­u­ate your mo­tives for the project—you will find your­self at a cross­roads, un­sure of the next steps. Al­low your­self to feel in­ner still­ness and con­tem­plate on your next steps. You will come up with a cre­ative so­lu­tion when you least ex­pect it. You will be called upon to play the role of me­di­a­tor for a small con­flict at home. Be calm and ob­jec­tive and re­frain from tak­ing sides. You have all the tools you need to re­solve con­flicts with­out hurt­ing feel­ings.

Tarot tip: Prac­tise for­give­ness and re­sist the urge to judge peo­ple. This will lighten your men­tal bag­gage and free you of ha­tred. Gem­stone: Rose quartz Colour: Pink

CAPRI­CORN

In the next few months, things will be laid­back at work and you will have plenty of time to so­cialise. Many net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties will arise and you will make fruit­ful con­nec­tions, as well as re­con­nect with old ac­quain­tances, which will prove to be ben­e­fi­cial to your work in the fu­ture. You will dis­cover some­thing about a close fam­ily mem­ber that will be dif­fi­cult for you to ac­cept. The cards ad­vise you not to project your per­sonal lim­i­ta­tions on other peo­ple and to be re­spect­ful of the in­di­vid­ual right to choose; this will help you han­dle this sit­u­a­tion bet­ter.

Tarot tip: Seek out peo­ple with sim­i­lar in­ter­ests through a hobby, or a ‘meet up’ group. You will make mean­ing­ful con­nec­tions this way. Gem­stone: Agate Colour: In­digo

AQUAR­IUS

Those of you who work in cre­ative fields or are in­volved in cre­ative work will feel in­spired to cre­ate with ease and joy. Those who travel, es­pe­cially by road, must be care­ful. It could be the be­gin­ning of a cre­ative project or ven­ture. Your in­tu­ition will also guide you at this time, par­tic­u­larly when you meet new peo­ple. Hon­our your gut feel­ing be­fore mak­ing any ma­jor de­ci­sion. A fi­nan­cial wind­fall through a lot­tery or from an ex­ceed­ingly good in­vest­ment is on the cards.

Tarot tip: Your chaotic ways of work­ing will not serve you for too long. It is time to put your thoughts in or­der. Clear un­wanted clut­ter from your per­sonal spa­ces by do­nat­ing or re­cy­cling. Then chart your in­ten­tions and plans clearly and ex­e­cute them. Gem­stone: Turquoise Colour: Blue-green

PISCES

You will be over­sched­uled and over­worked. Soon you will start to avoid so­cial en­gage­ments and shirk your du­ties towards friends and fam­ily. It’s time to bal­ance your work and per­sonal life. Put your phone away and do not check e-mails, or work af­ter you step out of your work­place. Al­lot time in your cal­en­dar for fam­ily and friends ev­ery week. On the health front, en­sure that you stay hy­drated and avoid overindulging in junk food and sugar.

Tarot tip: It’s time to get rid of un­wanted en­er­gies. This means let­ting go of things you no longer need or have not used in over three months. Peo­ple who are toxic and petty should also be moved out of your trusted in­ner cir­cle. Gem­stone: Yel­low sap­phire Colour: Yel­low
