Old souls have seen many lifetimes.

And have lived on land and sea,

Old souls understand Life more

the sadness, the anger  the grief

Fancy cars, Designer Labels, Tech trends

And the Ladder

Isn’t of much importance

Old souls want just one thing

And that’s never to be reborn

Human existence just tires them

From being here too long

Their souls cry to mingle with a myriad of  lights

Sprinkling sparkling coloured beams

Somewhere beyond the night.

So how do you tell an old soul?

Just look into their eyes.

If you see the deep deep ocean

Or a teardrop that stays

You know you’ve met an old gold soul

Who’s waiting for a flight.

JULY TAROT FORECAST by Mita Bhan

Tags

,

 

The following forecast is based on the Sun signs.

ARIES

 

The faster you learn to get along with some difficult people in your team the better things get. Not everyone thinks the way you do. And not everyone is as straight and to the point either. Be patient and you will be rewarded. Professionally this is a great time to reach out to new markets, business partnerships. Networks are opening their doors in front of you. Long term gains are possible but only if you are patient. A chance conversation with a coworker may lead to a short office romance. Take care of your skin if outdoors a lot.

 

TAURUS

 

The more you give, the more you get. And you have never held back in your relationships nor your life. The Universe showers blessings your way for all the times you helped someone in need selflessly.  Communication issues are highlighted be it in the communications industry or a meaningful conversation with a loved one. People notice you more now and if single, this is a great month to meet new people. Married couples strengthen their bonds.  Just remember to not splurge too much on unnecessary things

 

GEMINI.

 

Memories from the past are suddenly reawakened. Someone from a long time ago reconnects. Or you are suddenly reminded of a time in your life when things were simpler and sweeter.  You may find yourself drawn to creative pursuits like singing or dancing or listening to music from the past. A good month to sort out any differences, misunderstandings with people or clear the papers that are piling on your desk., you will find the energies quite liberating. Travel plans go smoothly. And financially things appear sorted and stable. Don’t ignore your mission to lead a healthy lifestyle.

 

CANCER

 

Step outside your comfort zone. Dare to do something different. Be a little bold. Tell the person you admire what you feel for them. Take up a new hobby. Go on an adventure. The cards urge you to tap into your potential and realise you are greater than you think you are. Don’t let self doubt destroy your dreams. At the workplace be a little more assertive and take back control. In relationships if you feel you’ve been taken for granted, speak out or step back. This is the month for initiating change in your life. And the faster you do it, the better the month will be. Watch out for too many late nights.

 

 

 

LEO

 

Your month may see you preoccupied with domestic chores or dealing with all kinds of repairs and renovations. Prepare for sudden expenses that may suddenly throw you off gear. Avoid lending money if you are not sure of the borrower’s intentions to return it.  At work, an alternative option may need to be carved out as an existing plan falls through. A sudden change in partnerships could leave you looking at your future differently. Any form of alternative therapy or meditation will bring positive results.  Steer clear of people who judge and criticise, you don’t need them in your life.

 

 

 

VIRGO

 

Temper temper dear Virgo. People will come to test your control and calm. If you find yourself stressing a little too much, take a break. Work matters need a detached and professional attitude. Holding on to the old ways will only  lead to resistance. Things are changing around you and the more you resist, the more annoyed you will be.  Family members could wear you out so do set boundaries. Watch out for a skin rash or ailment that could point to an allergy. Money matters continue smoothly and you may think of investing in property. Remember to give attention to a charitable cause.

 

 

LIBRA

 

The reason you are stuck where you are is because Life is asking you to take a risk. You may be at the crossroads or may be holding back on making an important decision out of fear. Face whatever scares you and take the big leap. You won’t regret it. Long term gains are indicated. A lucky period for self employed Librans, your ideas will be appreciated and people you met months ago will suddenly reappear. Don’t promise more than you can deliver. Singles can find themselves choosing between two or more attractive options. One tip, listen to your heart.

 

Scorpio

 

Teamwork is highlighted this month.  Greater success is assured if you work in a group . Share credit where it’s due. Focus on long term goals. Tolerate different viewpoints. And then, look forward to a long period of reward of recognition. Family matters run smoothly and a reunion promises a lot of shared laughter. Remember you can not undo the past, you can only make the most of the present moment. Enjoy good health and happiness.

 

Saggitarius

 

Balance and harmony will be restored but only after a short phase of delays, a sudden change of plans and unexpected expenses. Stay calm and this phase will pass. Money matters get resolved and negotiations run smoothly and in your favour. Your mind is at its sharpest and nothing escapes your notice. A great time for those appearing for interviews, your confidence will make you stand out. One note of caution, in your quest to be right all the time, be careful you don’t hurt people’s feelings.

 

Capricorn

 

You may not feel like being your normal sociable self this month. And you would prefer to seek some quiet time to recharge and renew. Keep away from petty politics, drama and gossip and concentrate only on the positive. A misunderstanding could turn into a cold war if you’re not careful with your words. And an old friend shows their true colours.  Money that was owed to you will be returned and an investment begins to show promise. Be generous but don’t allow yourself to get used.

 

Aquarius

 

Never say never dear Aquarian. Time to open up your mind and look at things from another person’s point of view. A short trip could be just the kind of change you need. Wedding bells begin to ring for many and you may find yourself wondering whether you too will tie the knot soon. A good month for making favourable impressions on your bosses and your clients. Going that extra mile for someone brings good luck. Try not to overspend on things you really don’t need. And do take care of your health if you’re prone to seasonal allergies.

 

Pisces

 

Don’t be in such a hurry to get things done. Slow down, smell the coffee, learn to be mindful of the simple and beautiful blessings in your life. In personal and professional interactions, speak out more and let your voice and opinion be heard. You have a lot to share with the world and this is the month to start. Those in the entertainment business or media will receive public attention.  Begin a blog, share your views or take up a cause.  One word of caution – Organise your paperwork, an important document go missing due to carelessness.

Staying Positive in Negative Times

It’s so easy to get swept up by other people’s negativity. Watching the news on TV only worsens it. You end up feeling bitter and helpless at what’s happening in this world. In moments like this, make it a point to to try to stay positive. It’s hard but it’s do-able. And if you find yourself slipping into a mode of complaints, anger, sadness, get up and try again. Positive energy is worth fighting for and hanging on to.

Q : My daughter doesn’t listen to me.

I’ve been telling her what to do and now she’s got herself a job in another city

And all she’s done since she’s reached there is complain about the people and then shout at me.

Why is she suffering?

3ofwands

 

A :  She’s learning the lesson of Tolerance and Patience.  What you’ve been telling her for the past 25 years to learn, Life will teach her in minutes.

Q : I always tell her to get along with all kinds of people , to overlook differences, to be respectful of another’s culture or religion, to just hang in there and understand the way they communicate before jumping to conclusions. Still, all she does is criticise and complain and sulk around people.

A : It’s her lesson. Not yours. You’ve done your best.  Just let go.

(one second later)

Q: I was wondering now that the kids are grown up, if I should go on that cruise I was reading about. A few of my friends are planning to travel in a couple of months…..

Feeling Overwhelmed?

 

You’re doing too many things at once and everything is important. What happens? You’re putting your mind and body under stress and if you’re not feeling it in your body (rapid heartbeat, shoulder pain) you’re expressing it (irritability, fears of not being able to complete things on time) Whatever is happening is happening and you cannot take your mind off the discomfort. Being overwhelmed is part of anxiety and can be easily controlled before it gets too much to handle.

Here how:-

1. Accept that you have tons to do. Make a list. Calmly tell yourself to focus on the priority items.

2. Take deep breaths, knowing that you are capable of handling whatever comes your way, calmly and efficiently. Meditate with self belief.

3. Exercise.  The best way to release endorphins and declutter your brain.

4. Distract yourself temporarily, do something to relax yourself – listen to music, talk to a friend, have a long bath.

5. Healing crystals like Blue Lace Agate, Rose Quartz, Aquamarine and even Black tourmaline help soothe and ground you – they can be worn as jewellery or held in your palm while meditating or breathing deeply. Remember to wash your healing crystals after every use.

6. Say no to the time wasters and unecessary demands put on you. Setting boundaries allows you to focus on yourself and bringing back that calm.

Remember feeling overwhelmed is only a temporary state. It will pass.

Are you migrating?

six of swords

Images of 6 of Swords from the Fountain Tarot and the River Styx Tarot.

Many souls do not feel at home in their country of origin. And yearn constantly to be  to be somewhere else. By the sea. On a mountain. Near a river. In a different city. The locations may vary but the feeling stays the same. These are the souls who ask the Tarot if they were destined to migrate.

Another set of souls have begun to feel disenchanted by their country of origin. The struggle gets too much. And there is a constant wanting for a more organised life, more spending power, better climate and more advanced systems.  Of these, I find there are souls who act upon their yearning and take the necessary steps towards the realisation of their dream. They would have met immigration lawyers or begun the process of application. And their questions to the Tarot usually revolve around possible time frames, future job prospects and financial security. And the second set who don’t like their current life, want to leave the country but take no steps in this direction  or have had their applications rejected and ask questions related to “Will I ever leave this country?”

And finally there are a few souls who end up in another country due to circumstances they never envisaged. A marriage proposal. The transfer of a spouse. Grown up children who have settled in other countries. Before they even realise it, they’ve moved to another home far away. And they learn to adapt and accept the changes that surround them. Their hearts and warmest connections remain rooted to their homeland and their questions revolve around the wellbeing of their family far away.

If there is one card in the deck of Tarot which answers the question of migration it’s the 6 of Swords.  The card of voyages, passages, moving to a new set of circumstances and leaving the past behind. And if it doesn’t appear it doesn’t mean the querent is not relocating, it just means there are karmic lessons to be learnt and business that remains unfinished. Or the energies aren’t quite right for you to know the answer at the time of the reading.

Find out if there’s migration in your cards, get in touch with an exclusive reading. Write to me at mita.bhan@gmail.com for details.

Protect Your Energy. Say No.

Tags

Some people are just consumed by their own negativity. They seek help but then start to argue, berate, belittle the person trying to help them. They refuse to acknowledge there could be a problem in their attitude or their way of looking at things and end up draining others with their refusal to see the positive in anything. It could be their anxiety, their fear or their bitterness that blocks them from receiving help, love and advice. And they end up frustrated and leaving loved ones and even those who try to help them drained. Recognise such people and protect your energy. It’s okay to say No to them. Block them from calling. And ignore their provocations. Saying No to someone who doesn’t want to be helped is simply an act of self preservation. Your first priority is to yourself regardless of what you do for a living or how they may be related to you. If someone disturbs your levels of inner peace, just say No.

Intoxicating Incense

IMG_7020.jpg

Sleep deprived and cranky? Just light a few sticks of lavender incense in your bedroom in the evening and feel your troubles literally float away with the heady smoke. Want to create a romantic mood for a special meal at home – reach out for some rose incense to infuse the environment with pure and positive thoughts. And if you just want to clear your mind of the clutter and the confusion get yourself some sticks of Lemon or Orange to uplift and energise you.

That’s just a few examples of how incense works. The  study of incense is the basis of Aromatherapy, a popular form of alternative healing and beauty treatment today.

Incense has been universally accepted as the purifier and is used across the world as part of religious ceremonies as well as medical healing.

In India, incense was and is used daily in all temples and rituals at home to sanctify devotions, where as in China incense is burned to purify and rid the environment of all negative spirits. Mexicans used incense to induce trance like states during rituals, Native Americans and Wiccans cleanse environments and human auras by smudging with bundles of aromatic herbs like white sage. the Greeks and Romans also used essential oils and fragrant herbs in all aspects of their daily lives, and many of their practices were learned from the Egyptians and Mesopotamians who were without doubt, the absolute masters in the Art of “Aromatherapy”.

Incense is believed to cleanse the environment of negative vibrations, and also has an extraordinary effect of soothing the mind. Just like a candle brings light to a dark room, the aromatic effect of incense offers tranquility to our senses. If used during meditation, incense is said to dissipate the negative energy. Burning of incense helps to create a positive state of mind and helps condition the mind to associate the typical fragrance with a positive and calm mind.

According to Dr. K. L. Sheshagiri Rao, Chief Editor of the Encyclopedia of Hinduism and Professor Emeritus at the University of Virginia, incense is supposed to have a calming effect on the mind. In particular, jasmine and sandalwood scents are supposed to bring out a peaceful mindset

Call it a feel good fix, incense works. Some fragrances like sandalwood have properties calm and purify, while citrus based ones are generally thought to be uplifting and clarifying. While trying out some home fragrances, you can burn 2-3 different kinds of incense together, or even opt for essential oil blends to burn to help you.

Here are a few favourites for use in the following purposes/conditions

Meditation

To aid in meditation, nothing beats the sweet aromatic smoke of sandalwood. However, if you prefer the aroma of frankincense, rose, jasmine, bergamot and geranium

Stress Relief

Tension and stress are major problems in today’s society and you can use a combination of incense and even blend the fragrances as essential oils. Good choices would include Lavender (I recommend my clients not only burn incense sticks of this delightfully soothing floral fragrance, but also opt for all personal care products in this smell to help with stress relief), Sandalwood for those who prefer a heavier aroma, Lemon, Mandarin, Lemon grass, clarysage and patchouli.

Love & Harmony

Harmony is essential to life and if you feel there have been too many disagreements lately or simply an accumulation of negative thoughts, and what could be better than burning a few sticks of the following incense to bring a harmony? Choose Rose, Peppermint, Strawberry, Gardenia, Frankincense, Myrhh  and Jasmine.

Cleansing and Purifying

During the rainy season, citronella and pine works well to ward away the mosquitoes and bugs. Pine is a popular disinfectant in essential oils and is known to dissipate the germs in the air.

Easily available and highly affordable, incense can be used for a variety of things, and can be stored for long durations without any risk of losing their fragrance.

So the next time you just want a soothing fix – reach out for an incense stick and allow its smoke to uplift you.

Clearing Karma Brings Peace

, , , ,

Father parked the car, put his hand in his wallet and handed the young girl some coins.

“Go, give it to the shopkeeper and tell him it’s from me”

The young girl looked at him quizzically.

“I owed him the change from last week”, he explained.

As she took the coins she asked.

“But it’s only change Father, you don’t need to return it”

A solemn expression came over her father and for a second, he looked like someone from the black and white photographs she had seen in the family albums.

“Return whatever you owe others. Even if it’s a few coins or a few hundred thousand notes. If you can’t return all of it, start returning what you can, regularly, until the debt is cleared”

His voice sounded different, a hundred years old.

She shrugged her shoulders playfully, “What if I forget to return the money?”

“Then don’t ever be in a position where you need to borrow money.

The only person who can forget is the one who lends you the money, and that too, if he chooses”

The girl stepped out of the car and walked into the shop. There were sweets and stickers  hanging from shelves at the entrance, she knew this shop well, her parents bought a lot of their daily essentials from here.  The old shopkeeper smiled and she extended her hand carefully dropping the coins into his palm. He smiled and reached out for some strawberry candy, her favourite!

As she skipped back to the car, her father grabbed the candy and quickly popped some in his mouth. The shopkeeper heard their laughter and sighed happily.

June 2018 Tarot Forecast

Tags

Aries

You’re very enthusiastic about starting a new project, but somewhere half way through you may have a tendency to lose interest or give up. All the cards ask you is to complete whatever you’ve begun. This is a lesson in staying power. And the faster you learn it, the higher you rise. Relationships may be a bit testing this week as you learn to compromise. Patience will go a long way. Money matters may get frustrating mid month but do get sorted out eventually. Take a breath in and prepare yourself for a bit of a wait.

Taurus

Not everyone is as efficient as you. And not everyone is as committed. You may have to work a little harder, or help your team mates complete their tasks. Ignore your critics, they are only jealous of your abilities.  A good week for financial gains, if you’d been planning on getting a new car or home loan, things should run smoothly. On the personal front a young man demand too much of you. Decide in advance how much you can and cannot give.  Overindulgence in desserts and rich foods may take a temporary toll on your health. Be mindful.

Gemini

The routine is getting to you. And so are the same old faces and places. Time for a break. And if that’s not possible, make sure you get some quiet time for yourself. You’ve overextended yourself lately trying to do too many things for too many people. Slow down, recharge your batteries and remember the caregiver has to take care of him or herself. Family matters get resolved and you may find some of the recent tension ebbing. A good month for sorting out paper work and finishing jobs that are lingering on your list.

Cancer

You may not find the answers to the problem. Someone may act difficult or secretive with some important information. Think out of the box. And learn to handle people better. Your teamworking skills depends on how well you understand others and not how they understand you. Something lost may be found. And if you’ve been single and looking for a little too long, the period for finding the special someone has begun. Keep an open mind to all romantic possibilities. Financially expect a pleasant surprise.

Leo

Sitting on the fence again? An important decision needs to be made. And the longer you procastinate the worse the pressure will get. A good month for those looking for jobs or travelling for higher studies. A favour will be granted but you may need to return the favour almost immediately. Make it a point to catch up with friends you haven’t met in ages.  Happiness lies ahead even if it’s for a short while, it will be worth it.

Virgo 

Lessons keep repeating themselves until we learn. Are you falling for the same time of people everytime? Or do you find yourself in the same situation? Is there a pattern in your struggle? Take the advice of a third party and start making changes from within. Remember we cannot change anyone but ourselves. Inspiration will come from being in nature. And if it gets too confusing or overwhelming, remember there’s nothing like a long walk to clear your mind and energies.

Libra

Your gut feel has been telling you something, stop treating it as your imagination and pay attention to the message. You may discover someone’s been dishonest. Or you may discover you’ve been used. Time to set a few clear boundaries between yourself and others. Now’s not the time to blindly follow others, but to do what you feel is right for yourself. Personally a period of self assertiveness has begun. Stand up  and speak out for what is right and just to you. Relationships will see a change as you stop allowing others to take you for granted.

Scorpio 

Peace at last. One of your goals is reached. Or one of your dreams comes true. Celebrations are in store and if you arent getting invited, how about throwing a party.

A short holiday should boost your spirits even more. Go on and start packing your bags!

Something’s completed and now it’s time to start a new chapter in your life. How would you do things differently if you were given a whole new lease to life? You may join a new job or move into your new house. Make sure you learn from past mistakes. Things are going to get better and brighter, but first you need to believe that you deserve it. An old friend or family member may reach out to you out of the blue for a favour. Start looking after your body and health.

Capricon 

Time to multi-task. There may be a number of responsibilities and demands coming your way this week. And at one level you may feel like just running away. But the hardworking soul that you are, knows you cannot survive without being productive. Another source of income may lighten your worries. And if self employed expect to be reading and writing a lot of mails and documents. If you feel overwhelmed by the excessive demands being placed on you  just take a deep breaths and prioritise. Things should get back to normal towards the end of the month

Aquarius

If you’re not happy about a situation why arent you speaking out?  People may be taking you for granted. Or happilly assuming you’re with them when you’re not. Keeping silent is not always a good thing. At the workfront petty politics begins to disgust you and you begin to want a change. Alternative healing will be a beneficial way to de stress from the toxic people who are in your life at the moment. Relax, this is only temporary. Peace does return but only after you get a little stronger

Pisces 

It’s all about honesty this month. A part of you will face up to your past words or actions and another part of you will learn to recognise the liars from the crowd. Be transparent in your communications with others. A chance encounter with a stranger could lead to a sweet romance for singles. Married couples can look forward to some moments of happiness together. Tell your loved ones how you truly feel for them, even if you know they know it.
