PC was the the little boy in preschool who was happiest when he was drawing and coloring. He drew mountains. He drew the sun. He drew fishes, and flowers and rivers and waterfalls. He dreamt of shiny stars and swirling leaves. His teachers loved him.
“Oh he’s such a sensitive child, the other day I had a bandage around my finger and he came up and kissed it and told me I’d be fine” said one teacher.
Another laughed and remarked “Cheerful little creature. Always ready to lend a helping hand”
“And there’s wisdom too. Almost as if he’s divine, the things he says….” the Principal leaned forward to listen about the Page of Cups”
“The other day I was teaching the class about washing hands. They were standing in a queue waiting for their turn on the taps. When his turn came he soaped his hands, shut the tap and turned to me and said. “I am saving water for my children”

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You may be denying something that’s obvious to everyone else. Pay attention to your critics – something needs changing within you and it’s about time you paid attention to the signs and signals. Travel plans may get delayed but you are going for sure, just not now. A work opportunity may open your mind to a completely different way of doing things or a whole new philosophy. Even though you are a busy bee, don’t skip meals as there may be signs of exhaustion and stress that are building up.
Taurus (Apr 20- May 20)
You don’t believe in half way measures do you dear Taurean? If you’re working, you burn the midnight oil. And if you’re partying then it’s till the wee hours. The card of moderation reminds you to bring back the balance in your life especially in matters of work and leisure. Take time out to figure out what’s truly important in your life and quit doing so much for other people. Remember relationships are about give and take and not just give- give – give.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You’ve worked hard to get where you are. And very soon, you’re going to get the recognition for it. Prepare yourself for praise and accolades. And if you were planning to take a break, hold on a little. Push yourself a little more. Don’t settle for second best. The world is about to see the best of you. You may find yourself splurging a lot more than necessary on little luxuries for yourself. Go ahead, you deserve it. Just make sure your budgets don’t go haywire.!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Keep saying you’re confused and you’ll stay in this state. Ask for clarity, focus on getting solutions and you will find things get easier. Take a reality check, figure out what really matters and concentrate on the essentials. You may have to choose between 2 equally enticing job opportunities or 2 wonderful suitors. Who will you pick, listen to your heart and decide soon. A nagging health matter may see you taking the alternative path to healing, and seeing results.
Leo (July 23- Aug 22)
Unexpected expenses may take you by surprise. And if you were planning to revamp the house or your wardrobe, you may overspend. Avoid lending or borrowing during this period and do make sure your paperwork is organized. A colleague may see you as a threat and act suspiciously. Avoid confrontations during this period. Focus on your work and make sure you meet your deadlines. You may have to travel at a short notice or move house soon, so prepare for the unexpected.
Virgo (Aug 23- Sept 22)
The worst is over and it’s now time to brace yourself for what lies ahead. A relationship may end or a source of income may dry up. You knew it was coming, just get your Plan B in order. Even at work you may feel like the thrill is gone. Don’t quit regardless of the temptation, hang in there and figure out your options before you submit your resignation papers. Change is in the air, and now’s not the time for impulsive actions. An old friend may offer you an interesting lead or advice.
Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)
Office politics is at play again. Someone may treat you unfairly. Or you may discover a competitive side to a colleague which you never knew existed. Brace yourself for a phase of challenges, delays and unnecessary unpleasantness. If it gets to you, work it out at the gym. Or practice deep breathing. Even in relationships your better half may get under your skin with his or her nagging. Or you may feel like taking a break from everyone and everything. Hold on. This phase shall pass. Count to 10 and you’ll handle it.
Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov21)
There’s a side of you that’s exhausted and too tired to fight. And there may another side of you that’s given up on caring. Don’t let the passionate side of you die down. Take a break. Meet some old friends. Or do something you love doing just to bring the positive energy levels up again. You cant give up now. Allow yourself some time to wallow but get back to your old self again. There’s a world out there to conquer and only you know how to do it. A good month to get your finances and paperwork sorted, a pleasant surprise may await you.
Saggitarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
Changes at work may leave you confused and powerless for a bit. Someone else takes the reins and behaves erratically. An old colleague or employer may call you back to work for them again. And if you were planning to move to another industry this is the time for taking risks. You may have blocked your inner voice, how about seeking stillness and asking yourself what’s the best way forward.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan19)
Things run smoothly and it’s time to be a little more generous with your time and spirit. Acknowledge everyone and be grateful for their efforts. Do your bit for the underprivileged and realize at the end of the day all of us are interdependent and connected. If you’re rising up the ladder, pull up someone less fortunate than you. If you’re learning something new, share your knowledge. The card of giving reminds us just how important it is to share.
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
There may be a lot to do but if you’re going to get overwhelmed how will you do it? Approach work in a step by step manner and remember, one day at a time. Family pressures may increase and you may feel like running away. Just slow down and calm yourself. Remember obstacles are placed in front of you to test your mettle, and you will pass with flying colours. Don’t listen to anyone who says you cant do it. Just believe in yourself and keep going forward.
Pisces (Feb 19- Mar20)
You may feel like you’re too different for the rest. Or you may feel a sense of vacancy at work or in your personal life. A part of you yearns to belong, and another side of you is happy being unique. This phase shall pass dear Piscean. How about channeling the energy into something creative? Children are a source of joy and spending time with your own kids or even the kids in the neighbourhood may rejuvenate and uplift you. And if you’re beginning to wonder if it’s all so depressing, it isn’t. There may be some money coming your way. And an invitation to a social event.
The cards seemed to nod and assured her he still loved her.
“When will he return?”
The card of Patience loomed large. It could take several weeks or months for him to realise just how much she meant to him. And he would need some time and space to actually understand his own heart. Let him be. Let him explore his own heart and soul and realise that you are the one.
“Whatttt???? Why can’t he hurry up?????”
The cards chose to be silent, and in the background crooned Phil Collins.
“You can’t hurry love No, you’ll just have to wait She said “love don’t come easy But it’s a game of give and take” You can’t hurry love, no you’ll just have to wait“

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
It’s all about compromise this month- giving in is essential to any relationship, and though at times it may appear to be a difficult pill to swallow, it helps a relationship to grow. You may find that you need to open your mind to changes around you. Confront your own difficulties Steer clear of malicious gossip and power plays both at work and in your personal life. Watch your temper, before you attack others, consider the consequences of your actions. Someone may treat you unfairly but it would be pointless to speak up at this point. Lie low, listen to the others perspective and understand that this is only temporary.
Taurus(Apr 20- May 20)
Take a break the cards guide you. If you’ve been working too hard and have been neglecting your or your family’s needs, take a step back and take it easy for a short while. Worry is simply a waste of energy and it’s best to go with the flow and live in the present moment. Expect delays, procrastinations and non committal people in the work place. Put your daily concerns to one side and concentrate on calming your mind and restoring your energy levels. If you’re facing problems with a loved one, perhaps it would be wise to leave the subject of dispute for a while or take a break and focus on other things. Financially things get better (but only after you let go!)
Gemini(May 21 – June 20)
If Life has been chaotic of late, just remember the worst is over. Somewhere in the turbulence of the past few weeks, you’ve learnt to understand that nothing and no one can be taken for granted. Things gradually get better this month as you find your attitude changing towards people and circumstances that are truly beyond your control. Prepare yourself for minor upheavals in the work front but also be confident knowing that you can handle it. Financially a month of gains with the promise of more.
Cancer(June 21 – July 22)
Time to take stock. Pause and look back at your achievements and your goals. Re-evaluate your life and let go of relationships and situations that no longer help your growth. Rethink your plans and prioritise your life accordingly. A good time to ask yourself how much satisfaction are you getting out of your education, career and relationships and make the necessary changes required to improve things. Singles may find a friend disclosing feelings for you, and married couples may renew bonds of commitment and love. A time for positive, constructive change, realize that if you want happiness it may be time to modify and readapt, give up or walk away.
Leo(July 23- Aug 22)
A time of increased activity is in store for you this month, starting new projects, a new career, beginning new relationships. In your rush to do new things, don’t be hasty. Be sure to check things out carefully before proceeding, impulsiveness could cost you a lot more than you think. Travel is on the cards along with sudden plans, decisions and even sudden cancellations of plans. Expect the unexpected, expect speed and don’t forget to pause before you rush into things. Singles may discover a relationship suddenly taking a turn for the better or worse, and married couples may find a sudden disclosure changes the balance of things.
Virgo(Aug 23- Sept 22)
You may find that you’ve been doing too much for others, taking on more responsibilities than necessary and are simply wearing out. Set clear boundaries around yourself about what you can do and what you cannot do for loved ones and people at work. Are you giving more of yourself than is humanly possible? The cards guide you to take time out for yourself and set your priorities. Learn to say No to people who waste your time and energy and take out some quiet time for yourself. Single people may find themselves so bogged down at work that there’s no time for play. If married, you or your mate may be overworked and simply too tired. Relax, learn to meditate and remember it’s okay to say No.
Libra(Sept 23- Oct 22)
One moment you’re on top of the world in love with one and all, and in other moments you may wish to hide and not interact at all. Take a good hard look around you and do view things objectively. Not everything is as it seems, and before you rush off to plan or fantasize, assess your current options. Go beyond face value and promises and let actions speak for themselves. Don’t allow yourself to get lulled into a false sense of security. Expect results towards the end of February.
Scorpio(Oct 23- Nov21)
Nostalgia reigns supreme. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself reminiscing about an old flame or suddenly bumping into a familiar face again. Workwise, an old colleague or an acquaintance may propose an enticing idea. Or you may get a call from your old office. And personally, expect either a family reunion or a letter or phone call from a family member you haven’t met in years. Single Scorpios may have a last fling with an exflame and those married may be wishing for their old single days again or missing an old love. Watch your tendency to go overboard with expenses.
Saggitarius(Nov 22- Dec 21)
Too much of a good thing is not a good thing ! The card of balance appears reminding you not to go overboard with excess – be it in terms of work, food, drink, anything. Establish boundaries with those who take you for granted, and decide for yourself just how much is worth giving and how much is worth keeping. Remember, balance is your key. A recurring health ailment may flare up again so watch your lifestyle. At the workplace you may find yourself swinging between days of little or no work and days when you’ll be putting in 18 hours non stop. Strive for balance this month before it takes its toll on you.
Capricon (Dec 22-Jan19)
Things are changing, just when you thought they wouldn’t. Now’s the time to put all your ideas into action, and do all the things you’d dreamed about. Action, energy, dynamism and verve are keywords for you this month. Don’t be surprised if you find your magnetic energy and intensity attracting a few admirers either. Who can resist someone who’s definitely on their way upward and onward? Expect to receive a lot of messages, be prepared to pack your bags in a moments notice and have your Plan B ready. A hectic, haywire, exciting month for singles who may suddenly find themselves admiring a number of people or being the object of affection of many. You are loved for being the special soul that you are:)
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
Trust becomes the issue of the month for Aquarians. Be it trusting your gut, or learning to trust again in your relationships. With this card expect a number of incidents cropping up in your life based around the issue of trust. And remember while you’re trying to figure out who can you trust and how much, the Universe trusts that you will make the right choice and do the right thing. Believe in yourself, listen to your inner voice. If you feel someone doesn’t quite appear what they seem, or is promising a little too much, listen to your gut. Singles and couples may find differences of opinion with their loved ones getting too much to bear and the cards guide you to take a break and look at things objectively for a bit. Be careful in financial dealings, don’t let anyone sweet talk you with promises.
Pisces(Feb 19- Mar20)
The worst is over and things become a little better.. Hope and healing is in your hands. The more you cling to the negative memories, the more power you give them over you. Positive changes begin when you believe they will happen. A very productive month for start ups and students, your hard work will pay off in the long run. Burn off excess nervous energy with exercise. A love affair is about to begin if you allow it. It doesn’t guarantee forever but it may just be the adventure your soul needs.
Once in a deep blue moon I get the honour of reading the Ace of Cups as a response to the query if someone really loves them.
And this rare and powerful card says yes their love for you is real. The kind of love where they can feel their own heartbeat, but yours as well. Where they lie awake thinking if you are asleep or awake at 3am.
Yes your someone really loves you:)
And thank you for allowing me to be part of the beautiful energy shift this card ushered in.
He couldn’t help him himself. He didn’t choose to fall in love. It just happened, the only problem was she was married and leaving her spouse was simply out of the question. When I read his cards I could see the deep love he shared with her – the kind of love where happiness and sadness went hand in hand.
He was younger than her. Settled in a high paying job. Perfectly eligible for marriage himself. And his mother and aunts made sure they showed him pictures of various girls who they felt would be his Mrs Right. Most of the time he ignored them and sometimes would even shout at them for bothering him, his voice riddled in pain and frustration.
He had tried letting go. Multiple times. In multiple ways. But somehow she found her way back into his heart and once again they’d chat, or meet. And once again he’d return to his room lying awake through the night, wondering if this was his future.
His question was simple.
“Why has she come into my life if I cannot have her as my wife?”
For one second look at this question not as a human being. But as a soul.
Love is never limited to romantic love. Love is like an umbrella encapsulating the different shades of love. And if we as souls want to experience the true meaning of Love, we need to experience every aspect of love. The joy, the pain, the longing, the peace. In lifetime after lifetime. Be it unrequited love, sibling love, platonic love, romantic love, spiritual love. Each lifetime brings a different scenario, a different learning. Lessons would be repeated until the learning was complete. And the advanced lessons would get harder.
“So what is my Soul Learning?” he asked
To accept and not resist. Love is harmony. Love is being at peace. First with ourselves and then with the other. A part of you still struggles and suffers this way. Make peace with the side of you that cries in pain. Begin to fall in love with yourself. Which part of you brings you the greatest happiness, which part of you still struggles. Embrace the shadows, find completion in yourself. Accept yourself wholly.
When you accept your self, you accept the other unconditionally and the situation for what it is in reality, not the way you would like it to be, something we all do when we fall in love. We think of “what if” “why isn’t it? instead of appreciating the greatest lesson in life. Love.
“You mean love her unconditionally but ….wouldn’t it would hurt so much…”his voice broke for a second.
The feeling of love we all seek, does not lie in the receiving. It exists in the giving.
“I get it”
The deck was closed. The lesson learnt. For not just the young seeker in love, but also his old Tarot card reader.
The beauty of the Tarot is it tells you about your energies especially when you get a personalised session wherein the readers tap in and reads your energies and cards. Far more specific than just your Zodiac sign, a personalised reading looks at how the New Year can be for you professionally, romantically, financially and spiritually and throws lights on what your learnings could be this year.
