Giving space


, , ,

Sometimes in relationships, one partner wants a little time for himself or herself. Time to introspect, process their emotions, or focus on studies or work. Most often enough the other partner panics a little, fearing the loss of the relationship and starts to frantically message the person, and if ignored they turn to readers, to find out why he or she is not responding to their texts, or if they are leaving them for good.

With the Tarot in cases like the these, the message is always the same. Leave them be. If someone truly loves you they won’t forget you and your importance in their life. Just like fields are left fallow for a while to nourish and strengthen the soil, souls too need a little ‘time out” to recharge their batteries and gain perspective. Understand and respect their need for space. Trust that things will work out. By messaging them repeatedly we only end up creating tension in the space and sometimes it drives the person further away.

Just let go, give them the space. Make them miss you.

They’ll come back when the time is right.

The Empress and the Queen of Swords



The Empress met the Queen of Swords

over a cup of tea,

And when the two did meet

they laughed so happily,

The Empress spoke of her kids

of Nature and  of Love

While the Queen sat down

and copied it all

with a red pen and a  frown

Two women so different

yet as powerful as could be

One lived by her heart

The other


In every woman lives the Empress

and all the four Queens

If only we could balance them all

and get along,

what a force we’d be.

Happy Women Shakti Day



womens day


A short story  about the birth of Shakti in every little baby girl.

Who’s the special little blood cell then? Cooed mama as she cradled the little red blob in her arms. Baby gurgled, and reached out chubby little hands trying to grab mommy’s smile. “you’re not like the other bloodcells darling, no, no, no always remember that okay”

Baby stopped gurgling and looked deep into her mother’s eyes questioningly. Mama laughed softly. Mama had been a little baby too when her mother had whispered the magic words into her ears, while she crawled around the corners of the veins, where it was safer, and less slippery. Putting the baby down on the side of the vein she spoke to the vein about taking care of her for a second while she popped around to check on the oxygen supplies. Vein was an old hand at this, millions of little ones she had baby sat, waiting and watching them as they grew older and stronger, ready to carry the load. But there was something unique about this babooshka. She glowed happilly in the corner, kicking at the vein’s walls while chattering to herself. Then it struck her, of course, this is not the ordinary bloodcell. This is a bloodcell with a mission. This is the strength giving bloodcell who’ll wait around in the corners till she is needed one day, and then she will burn and race through the veins like a bullet of fire, strengthening every nerve and fibre. The vein smiled softly to herself as she allowed the baby to chew on her walls curiously. But of course!

Mama bloodcell flowed back, thanked the vein and picked up the baby on her back, and while doing so, she whispered “come now, my little shakti, come I shall show you your passage, so you will never need a road map when you’re suddenly called upon” Baby laughed out loud and blew a bubbly kiss at the vein who shed a tear of pride.


Happy Women’s Day!

March 2018 Tarot Forecast by Mita Bhan



Step back a little. Take a softer approach. Things won’t always work out the way you want them to if you display even an ounce of impatience or aggression.  Women will play a prominent role in your life, question is, what are you doing to acknowledge their presence and power in your life?  Singles may meet a brand new love who could sweep them off their feet. And if married, make sure lines of communication are open between you two. Keep talking and sharing. A lovely month for letting go – of unnecessary possessions, irrelevant relationships and attitudes that you have outgrown. Just remember to go gentle with yourself and others.


Life seems to be like one big yawn at the moment. And the cards urge you to break out of the boring routine by doing something totally different and adventurous. Step out of your comfort zone, you won’t regret it! Some paperwork may need extra attention so do stay organised and prepare yourself for sudden changes, especially in written matters. In relationships remember not to judge others by how you are with them. Be flexible. Everybody has their own set of battles. Make peace with a relationship by learning to accept the present situation.


Lady Luck shines on you but only for a while so make full use of the positive energy coming your way. It could be busy month workwise so be prepared for extra work while you work your way towards long-term rewards.  Money that was owed to you will be returned. And you may decide to invest or make a significant purchase in the weeks ahead. Just control your temper with people who aren’t as quick as you. Too much nervous energy could lead to a minor ailment, so do not forget to meditate or consciously relax, to get the stress out.


A time of deep transformation has begun.  Changes will soon be visible to you and you will find your responses going through a shift as well. People and situations you thought you could count on, may no longer be available. Just go with the flow. And learn to let go. A great month for starting something new,  be it a new diet or a new project. The cards foretell great success. Stop living in the past so much. Enjoy the present and work towards a wonderful future.


The more you move into the present moment the more harmony you experience. Things that used to irritate you, no longer do. Are you getting wiser or just being you? The family will be a source of joy and comfort. And you notice the blessings in your life with renewed awareness. Workwise, things progress smoothly and you may even start planning your next vacation. Just be careful not to overdo things and overindulge. Someone may seek you out for guidance or you may find playing the peacemaker for others. Enjoy this role. Good things are coming your way.


Little by little, things start coming into place. Changes you incorporated a few months ago start delivering results. Problems get sorted out and there’s a general ease in the way your life functions in the weeks ahead. Don’t get complacent though as this phase is just preparing you for the next stage of growth. Financially a promising month. Increments, promotions, profits are favoured over the next few months and it would be wise to stay organised. Interpersonally you may clear the air with someone, or choose to forgive them and move on with Life. High time isn’t it?


The more you vacillate between two choices the more you make things harder for yourself. Take a stand. Choose a path. Make a decision and stick to it. And suddenly you feel liberated by your own self-created pressure. A good time to set goals and even write out your bucket list. Something you want is coming your way but there will be a small price to pay when you do get it. Healthwise you may need to get an expert opinion about a small, nagging ailment. Knowledge will bring peace and a sense of confidence. Be wary of someone who promises much much more than they deliver.


You’re at the top of your game and now it’s time to plan for your long-term success. Don’t settle for second best. Dare to dream and live your dream. People will sense your ambition and try to block you. Not everyone sees things the way you do. Don’t force your opinion on them, just keep doing what you do. A child may need extra attention and your sensitivity will help deepen the bonds between you two. Financially a month of consolidation and long-term planning. Your health could go to extremes, so don’t take things too much for granted.


Temper, temper dear Sagittarian! You may find yourself more irritable and impatient and if someone doesn’t watch it, a few explosions will take place. Find out what is truly angering you instead of taking out on the innocent.  Reflection, meditation and exercise will bring clarity. Even at work, you may find things getting too predictable and boring and begin to crave some change and adventure. Don’t be too impulsive. Something said in the heat of the moment could have long-term consequences to face. A new relationship that begins in this period could open your mind to a new way of approaching things.  One tip, before you react, look at things from another’s perspective.


Just because you stick to deadlines doesn’t mean others do. Expect quite a few waits and delays where others are concerned. If you’ve done your homework, things will move in your favour. Otherwise just use this time to double check and stay informed. Practice moderation in your spending, and if you’re thinking of growing your income take the necessary steps. A friend could show his or her true colours when the mask falls off. Believe what you see and reconsider your equation with them. A good month to learn a new skill or pick up on a hobby you love. Peace will come through productivity.


You may have a tendency to over give, to the point of exhaustion. And this month may just appear to teach you the lesson of setting boundaries and saying No to those who use you or just waste your time. Make sure you get some me-time in the days ahead especially if you find yourself tired all the time.  Expect delays when it comes to payments. A reunion or celebration could be a great time to unwind and catch up with people from your past. Singles could find themselves reaching out to their former loves. Before you dial their number ask yourself if you truly miss them or is something else missing from your life?


You do have the power to make a difference, in your own life and in the world around you. It’s time to start believing and taking the necessary steps in the direction of your future success. Only you can motivate you. Stop expecting so much from others. The clearer your goals, the higher you will go. On the personal front a special someone from a long time ago may want to reconnect. A reunion could make you nostalgic. Abundance surrounds you, simply tap into the energy and prepare for greater gains in the months ahead. One warning, watch out for a recurring allergy.

Don’t Look for Love.



Don’t search for the perfect one.

Don’t ask when, or who, or where.

Don’t look for love.

Let Love find you.

Let it’s mysterious energy knock you off your feet.

And that IS going to happen the day you stop looking and enjoy your present state.

Understand that the reason you are alone right now is because you’re meant to focus on other things, learn other lessons of Life and to tap into your inner self. And find the love within you.  Anyone else would merely be a distraction. Yes it feels like forever till they come, but it’s not. Forever is letting Love grow inside you and someday, suddenly, appear in front of you.

As you sow so shall you reap


A successful business man was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the business.

Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children, he decided to do something different. He called all the young executives in his company together.

He said, “It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO. I have decided to choose one of you..”

The young executives were Shocked, but the boss continued. “I am going to give each one of you a SEED today – one very special SEED… I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO.”

One man, named Jim, was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went home and excitedly, told his wife the story. She helped him get a pot, soil and compost and he planted the seed. Everyday, he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some of the other executives began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.

Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew.

Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing.

By now, others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn’t have a plant and he felt like a failure.

Six months went by — still nothing in Jim’s pot. He just knew he had killed his seed. Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing. Jim didn’t say anything to his colleagues, however.

He just kept watering and fertilizing the soil – He so wanted the seed to grow.

A year finally went by and all the young executives of the company brought their plants to the CEO for inspection.

Jim told his wife that he wasn’t going to take an empty pot. But she asked him to be honest about what happened. Jim felt sick to his stomach, it was going to be the most embarrassing moment of his life, but he knew his wife was right. He took his empty pot to the board room. When Jim arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other executives. They were beautiful — in all shapes and sizes. Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!

When the CEO arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted his young executives.

Jim just tried to hide in the back. “My, what great plants, trees, and flowers you have grown,” said the CEO. “Today one of you will be appointed the next CEO!”

All of a sudden, the CEO spotted Jim at the back of the room with his empty pot. He ordered the Financial Director to bring him to the front. Jim was terrified. He thought, “The CEO knows I’m a failure! Maybe he will have me fired!”

When Jim got to the front, the CEO asked him what had happened to his seed – Jim told him the story.

The CEO asked everyone to sit down except Jim. He looked at Jim, and then announced to the young executives, “Behold your next Chief Executive Officer!

His name is Jim!” Jim couldn’t believe it. Jim couldn’t even grow his seed.

“How could he be the new CEO?” the others said.

Then the CEO said, “One year ago today, I gave everyone in this room a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today. But I gave you all boiled seeds; they were dead – it was not possible for them to grow.

All of you, except Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers. When you found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you. Jim was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who will be the new Chief Executive Officer!”

* If you plant honesty, you will reap trust
* If you plant goodness, you will reap friends
* If you plant humility, you will reap greatness
* If you plant perseverance, you will reap contentment
* If you plant consideration, you will reap perspective
* If you plant hard work, you will reap success
* If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation
* If you plant faith in God, you will reap a harvest

So, be careful what you plant now; it will determine what you will reap later.

Singing with my Himalayan Singing Bowl




Meet my Himalayan Singing Bowl. Gifted to me by a visiting Regressionist from New Zealand over 10 years ago, this ancient healing tool is one of my prized tools  for balancing and healing, cleansing and purifying not just me and my family and clients, but also my home and office. I love playing it walking from room to room or simply meditating with it. It is not uncommon to find people owning 3-4 of these, playing each one alternatively. Me, I’m happy with just one.

According to the Tibetans, these bowls have been around since Buddha’s times and are the quintessential aid for meditation, healing and cleansing practices. They produce a sound that immediately balances our brains, our chakras and deeply relaxes those who hear it. Meditating on the sound helps tune one into the universal sounds of  Universe. Easily available at alternative healing stores and Tibetan antique/handicraft shops, Himalayan Tibetan bowls should always be tested before purchase.

For an idea of what it sounds like, do listen to this video here. And if you’d like a live demonstration after a Tarot/Healing session, I’d be more than happy to play it for you :):)

Boost your Energy with Healing Crystals




We’ve all had times in our lives when we felt devoid of energy, listless and completely disinterested with life. Thankfully, it is a temporary condition for most of us. But, for those who feel tired often or are simply fatigued, here are some crystals which help uplift the energy and spirits.

Easily available with jewellers, feng shui and crystal healing stores, these crystals are affordable, have no side effects but must be cleansed under running water at least once after buying them. They may be worn as jewellery in the form of bracelets, pendants or rings or placed in strategic corners of your home and office.

Clear Quartz (Sphatika)
Available in cut or polished form and in raw clusters, clear quartz has been hailed as ‘battery of the soul’ by healers over centuries. It not only helps dispel toxins but helps restore our body’s energy balance. The quartz is beneficial for the mind, body and the spirit. A clear quartz works at all levels, bringing in a sense of calm, clarity and harmony.

Green Tourmaline (Turmali)
Deep leaf green in hue, this semi precious stone is found in most jewellery shops. Also known as verdalite, it is best worn as a pendant or a bracelet in silver. It works as an all round healer, restoring the balance and bringing back positive energy. It not just dispels toxins and fears but aids in restful sleep and raising energy levels too.


A powerful combination of both amethyst and citrine, this purple and yellow stone helps you get clarity. It thus improves our focus and brings in harmony, making us optimistic. This stone will help you find a solution to any problem.

Citrine (Sunehla)

Ranging in shades from yellow to brown, citrine is hailed as the carrier of the sun’s rays. It is a powerful cleanser and regenerator of body cells. It works as an effective chakra activator and energizer; especially the solar plexus chakra (at the stomach). It also brings in joy and improves your physical energy too.

Healing crystals work in restoring energy, vitality and harmony into a person’s life. Slow and sure, these gifts of mother nature have helped millions of people through time. They can be used as effective complementary healing aids to reduce stress, anxiety and tiredness.



February 2018 Tarot Forecast


Don’t look back. You’re advancing in the right direction. And all the decisions you’ve taken are the right ones. This is not a time for going back on your word or rethinking things. Just keep moving. If you were planning to go solo or start your own business or consultancy, things may work out sooner than you think. Singles may get engaged during this period. All partnerships and new ventures are favourable right now. Just make sure you don’t splurge or spend your savings recklessly.


Someone may be trying to control you or force you to change your opinions. It could be a family member or a boss. Before you cave in, speak out and stand up for yourself. A situation at home may get tense and may need to be talked about. Sweeping things under the carpet doesn’t mean a solution has been found. Take issues head on and resolve to clear them up once and for all. A good month for research and getting to the bottom of things. Don’t waste time on unnecessary activities.


Wow. You can make magic by just being who you are. Believe in your talents and get out and show them. You may dazzle your audience at a presentation, or win the favours of an influential person by the wealth of your mind. A new partnership or alliance could be in the offing. If you were planning to tie the knot soon, how does tomorrow sound! Just prepare yourself for the sudden turn of events, all favourable of course!


Worrying needlessly about money matters doesn’t help. Sort out your paperwork and get organized instead. If you’ve overspent, find ways to save in the months ahead. And if you’re worrying about whether you will get that job or not, don’t give up hope. Friends and family will come forward and support you with inspiring advice. Do listen to their words of wisdom. Things will get better, but first, you will need to get organized.


There’s something you need to remember. It could be the key to the situation you’re in. Trust your gut feeling about someone or something. Take time out for meditation and introspection. A vital truth is about to be revealed that could change your life in many ways. Someone who appeared to be interesting may turn out to be quite a bore, or worse, a pain in the neck. Don’t give too much of yourself before understanding who you are giving to. Disconnect from relationships that have turned toxic.


You may have had enough of socializing and partying. Go on and take out time for yourself. Recharge your batteries. Reformulate your plans. And rethink your life. A relationship that was giving problems may improve if you take time away from each other. Even giving your spouse space may bring in some fresh energies into your life. If you’re feeling bored and stifled, ask yourself why and do something about it. A good month for learning a new hobby or skill.


Watch your health. Stress levels may go up this month especially in the workplace. Tempers may run high and an innocent remark could escalate into a full-blown argument. Walk away before you explode. Someone you thought you could trust turns out to be completely fake. Avoid borrowing or lending money in this period. And if you were planning to take a holiday, you may have to postpone your plans. Seek advice from a trusted source if you’ve been struggling too long with a recurring issue.


If you’re normally impatient then expect a testing period.  Count to 10 and expect delays. People may annoy you with their tardiness. And family may just get your goat with their quirks. While you’re brewing inside do remember to do something about the stress levels. Go for a walk or a jog. Or just head to the spa. The world needs your talents now and you cant afford to let anyone down. Financially things begin to look brighter and you may consider investing in something new.


Arent, you tired of doing things for everyone but yourself?. You may find people are taking advantage of your generosity and niceness this month and decide to hold back. Do that, especially if you know they’re using you consciously. A good time to detach yourself from people and situations that just aren’t worth it. Use this time to recuperate and pamper yourself. Children will be a source of joy. And someone in the family may bring some wonderful news.


Things begin to get better ever so gradually. Learn to not get carried away with emotions. Energies are slowly transforming and soon you can expect some positive changes around you. Something you’ve been struggling for a while with does get resolved. A misunderstanding gets sorted. And an old friend from the past reconnects with you. Charitable work will bring hidden blessings from the Universe in your direction.


The cards urge you to open your mind and take a risk. Even if it means giving up something realize that in the long run, you will benefit from this leap. It could be accepting a job in a totally different industry. Or committing yourself to someone who’s your opposite. Don’t hold back. Speak out your doubts and go and take that leap of faith. A great phase is about to begin that will see you at your most magnetic and adventurous. Don’t let your fears of failure hold you back.


Your dreamy side gets activated in the days ahead. And you may find yourself in some sort of fantasy land as well. Don’t get carried away and remember to keep yourself grounded as well. A chance encounter with an attractive stranger could lead to a crush of a lifetime or a romance. You decide. The health of a family member could cause some concern, don’t worry, they will recuperate. Students will need to put in extra effort to get the marks they want. And if seeking a promotion at the workplace, find out what is expected of you and deliver.

Handling an Eclipse


Tonight’s Lunar Eclipse is a rare event. And though it may throw a few of us off gear for a bit,remember it’s temporary and we all have the necessary skills within our souls to cope with energy shifts and gigantic changes taking place astrologically.

After receiving  5 calls this morning for readings I decided to do some research  and here’s what I found :

We usually go about our lives, unmindful of our world, let alone our universe. Now and then, the universe steps into our life with an eclipse and makes us aware not just of the sheer vastness of space, but also of how the seemingly unchanging sky is actually a place of constant motion. Such occasions, to be a part of something larger than ourselves, even as large as the entire solar system, come but rarely. Let us not waste it by cowering in our houses, scared of, literally, our own shadow!

India Science Wire

Eclipses are the drama queens of astrology but rightly so. Things come in hot and heavy during these times with big sweeping changes or the moments that happen instantaneously, yet end up shaping the next twenty years of our lives

This means that things have a way of falling apart around eclipses. We unexpectedly have to transfer jobs, move somewhere else, or a relationship seems to have hit a dead-end. Sometimes one of the most difficult things we can do is let something go that is trying to leave.

Not everything or even everyone is meant to stay in our lives long-term. We are not meant to stay in the same place forever in our lives; instead, we are meant to grow, to open up, and to let ourselves be transformed by what we experience.

Kate Rose, YourTango astrology.

Two extreme and interesting points of view. Our best way forward is to stay on the middle path, retaining our sense of balance and hope. All will be well if not better.
