FATE & FORTUNE
Tarot card reader Sangeeta Krishnan steers you through these two months with predictions and advice
In the next two months, you will be bursting with new ideas in an outpouring of the muse. This is a great time to start new ventures and solve obstacles. You will have renewed energy and enthusiasm to tackle tricky circumstances and new challenges and do something completely different. You will surprise people by making an unexpected life-changing decision. Some may discourage you, but you will have courage of conviction to continue regardless. The weather is wonderful where you are so make the most of it by spending time in nature. Tarot tip: Time to pen your thoughts—a great way to crystallize ideas and express yourself. Gemstone: Emerald Colour: Green
Old friendships may fade and you will naturally part ways with old allies. You will find plenty of opportunities to socialise. Family and friends will get together often this month and in the next, and there will be several celebrations of life. At work, be careful of people who make promises and do not deliver. People will talk behind your back. Always be upfront, but avoid needless confrontations, and do not indulge in gossip at any cost. Be the bigger person by steering clear of slander.
Tarot tip: This is a good time to invest in property and go for other long-term investments. Gemstone: Amethyst Colour: Violet
Work will keep you occupied for a bit longer. You may be too busy to take time off during the festive season. It is important to strike a balance between work and family. You may be neglecting the needs of someone close to you. Subtle and unspoken thoughts may create tension in the home. Try to remain present and mindful of everyone at home. To do this, try disengaging from all electronic gadgets and keep your eyes and ears open.
Tarot tip: You are what you eat. Watching your diet is as important to your health as exercise. Try not to go overboard during the festive season. Gemstone: Ruby Colour: Red
The next two months will be a roller-coaster of emotions, with a lot of unexpected turns and sudden changes that will test your patience, resolve and faith. In a few weeks, this will eventually settle down and you will be relieved and have some stability in life. Legal issues will progress slowly. There will be chance to travel for leisure; exercise caution when you travel by road or air. New relationships will blossom and you will reconnect with old contacts.
Tarot tip: It is now time to let go of your inhibitions and pursue your dream regardless of what other people think. Gemstone: Diamond Colour: Rainbow
You will be inundated with family issues. Overseas travel—for work or leisure—is on the cards. You are advised to avoid unnecessary confrontations. You will be put in an awkward situation that would be best to resolve peacefully. You will play the role of a mediator in an important situation at work. Play by your strengths and you will succeed. You will deal with home repairs or renovation-related work. On the health front, you will recover from a long-winded illness.
Tarot tip: While your career is promising, you need to map your long-term goals so that you know which direction to head. Gemstone: Moonstone Colour: Cream and white
You are bursting with energy, enthusiasm and drive. You will achieve much in the next two months. Many of your efforts will reap rewards, but frustrations also run high. You will be tempted to drop one project for another because it is not yet successful; but remember, waiting is a part of the process. Some relationships will feel complicated and rough. Take a step back to see beyond your own perspective—you are neither victim nor perpetrator. You are the creator of your own destiny and relationships.
Tarot tip: Clear the clutter from your home, desk and personal spaces. Release what you don’t need by repurposing, recycling, or donating. Gemstone: Tourmaline Colour: Blue-black
The law of attraction is seemingly working for you, as you will find! Anything you put your mind to will start to manifest within moments or days. This is a good time to cleanse your mental space and instil a positive mental outlook. Socially you will meet and greet many. Attention will be focused on you so a great time to pitch your ideas to your work associates and see how things go. Tarot tip: Spend some time in the sunlight and soak in the positive, uplifting energies of nature. The outdoors will have a positive effect on your mood, reflecting every aspect of your life. Gemstone: Obsidian Colour: Black
New projects and job opportunities are on the horizon. Expect an interesting job offer, or a monetary increase of some kind. Tricky situations will manifest at work, but you will manage to navigate through them with aplomb. The next two months are not ideal for major decisions regarding investments. Keep up with your doctor's appointments and do not neglect the needs of your body. Take regular walks and set some time apart for a physically demanding hobby, perhaps a martial art or yoga. Tarot tip: Now is the time to make a serious commitment. If you continue to avoid this, the opportunity will pass you by. Gemstone: Turquoise Colour: sky blue
The last few weeks’ social activity has frazzled you. It’s time for some quiet time to yourself. Set up a space/sanctuary where you can retreat at times like these. Find your spiritual “centre” where you can recharge and be ready to roll when it’s time. A major change is upon you, which will bring major personal transformation that will spread into every area of your life. Though your initial instinct may be to resist this, it is an inevitable part of the karmic wheel of life. Tarot tip: Meditate on your life’s tough situations to gain objectivity and know how to better deal with it. Gemstone: Clear Quartz Colour: White
You may feel unhappy in your present relationship due to an inability to effectively communicate your needs and expectations. This month, however, you will be able to and as a result see major improvement. Business owners will profit in the next two months. Some of you will have a windfall. In the coming two months, you will receive a karmic reward, seen in the form of helping hands and generous acts by acquaintances and strangers. Tarot tip: It’s time to do the right thing wherever possible. Think about the promises you made to yourself, your personal goals, and see if you are working in line with them! Gemstone: Agate Colour: Orange
Your business will receive tremendous help and support from secret unseen helpers, both on the physical and energetic planes. There will be money in abundance during this phase. Someone close to you will be in a difficult phase of life right now—the cards ask you to show patience and compassion. At work, be very cautious as there is jealousy. Someone may try to take credit for the work you have done. Resist the urge to engage in petty arguments. Tarot tip: Take time off to rejuvenate, recuperate and re-energize yourself. Use this time to plan ahead and evaluate your future goals. Gemstone: Citrine Colour: Yellow
Hard work will be rewarded. Business ventures will bring success and you will feel fulfilled and gratified. Your efforts will be recognised by your superiors, and you can finally take a breather. You will be tempted to go on working, but be cautious about pushing yourself too hard. Legal battles will remain unresolved. No big business decisions should be taken during this time. In urgent cases, seek advice from a trusted friend or family member. There will be an illness in the family that will lead you to take time off to help out. Tarot tip: Always look for the silver lining in every cloud. Gemstone: Aquamarine Colour: Blue
