We want the good old ways, or the good old days. But deep down we know it’s not going to happen. It’s either accept, adapt, suffer or struggle.
When 4 fives come out in a single spread, you know it’s no small matter. In the Tarot, fives represent change, challenge, fluctuations of energy and a certain unpredictablity with it. And when reflected in the 4 suits you can be sure the changes are taking place at all levels, globally and personally – at all levels – Professionally, Personally, Mentally, Emotionally, Spiritually.
The key to change is to not panic or fear. Not all changes are bad. Some serve us wake up calls. And some get us ready for who we were meant to be and what we were meant to become. Take time out to meditate regularly and operate from a place of stillness. Maintain an open mind and go with the flow. And while you’re at it, think of ways to adapt with changing times.
As the great Greek philospher once said “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new”

The more we learn to tune inwards to our own inner self the more we realise we knew somethings all along. In that space of absolute tranquility is where the answers come. Going from reader to astrologer to psychic to numerologist to regressionist to face reader for an answer will give you wide and varied responses, but will never resonate as well as what we know to be true deep down inside us.

If any of these statements rings a bell, you know you’re in a toxic work environment and you need to take immediate steps before it robs you of happiness totally.
A Few Tips
Start an exit strategy.
You can wait till things get better but at what cost? Update your resume and start looking for options.
2. Practice Self Care Daily
Do something that’s positive and beneficial for your mental and physical health. Walking Meditations. Swimming. Regular Ayurvedic Massages. Dance. Something that shakes away the toxic energies that you may be absorbing in your work environment.
3.Connect with Nature
Even if it’s walking barefoot in a nearby park, or tending to a flowerpot allow Nature to heal you while you disconnect from the office
4. Be with your Loved Ones
Sometimes all it takes is a hug from a child. Or a cup of tea made by a friend to remind you that you’re special.
Peace of mind is precious. Physical health even more precious. Never be with someone or some place that’s making you sick. For more insights on toxic workplaces get in touch and we’ll see what the Tarot has to say about a way forward for you.
Q “There’s a weird low level anxiety in the bottom of my stomach that’s constant. I’m unhappy because somewhere I feel I’m missing the mark. I should be doing something with my Life. I mean why was I born. I’m only doing this freelance project to make my parents happy but this is not me. They don’t understand what’s happening to me. They’ve both worked hard to reach where they have. When I graduated a few years ago, I started a business to do something for the environment but it failed. I want to start another business around recycling plastic items but I’m scared of failing again. What clues can you give me about my Life Purpose?”
The low level anxiety you feel is your own inner self telling you not to hide behind the screen but to go out to Nature, where you feel happiest, where you are most inspired to make a difference. One failure doesn’t define who you are and what you could be born to do. And clearly it is to do something for our planet….
No one can tell you exactly why you were born. And not every Life Purpose is a vocation. You’ve been given clues all your life. And your biggest clue is happiness.

One of the reasons why I love my work so much is the opportunity it gives me to get a glimpse of your soul. I’m not impressed by the car you drive, the money you make, how famous your are, the clothes you wear or your looks. I’m only impressed by your soul.
Your truest essence. Your spark of Divinity which you bring to this world. Which sometimes you cannot see but sometimes I can – an experience which can only be described as awe inspiring and humbling as I learn more about the Creative Source that created all our souls. And express to you in my own words what I see, sense, hear or feel about your soul and it’s potential.
If you’d like to know more about your soul get in touch for an exclusive soul report that will take you through the essence of your soul, your current lesson and your ultimate potential in this lifetime as a human being.

“I’m so scared. What if I ask my boss for a promotion and he refuses me.”
“If I ask her out I’m afraid she’ll say no.”
“What if I fail my exams?”
“Will my father be angry with me if I tell him ?”
“I fear I will never get another job if I quit.”
Who doesn’t have fears. Fears are part and parcel of being human. And whenever the 8 of Swords appears as an answer to a question related to something that’s making you anxious, you can be pretty sure that the fears are not coming true.
A minor card from the suit of swords, this card talks about feeling trapped in our state of fear, of reliving the horror, and being unable to move to a space of freedom and courage. And that’s exactly what the card wants you to do. To not stay stuck, to move, even if it’s one step at a time.
A long time ago a wise old man told me “on the other side of fear is courage, be brave enought to walk through this emotion” At first I couldn’t. The ‘what ifs’ and ‘oh no’s’ swirled through my head like a never ending chorus, but with effort and self exploration I realised the fears that held me back were temporary blocks to getting what I wanted.
Whenever I see the 8 of Swords I always convey the message “Don’t let your fear of what could happen make nothing happen” Walk through the fears with logic and the help of a friend or a counsellor if you must. The fears you feel are false and on the other side could be the liberation you need.
A string of bad relationships and you’re suddenly confused.
“Why cant I find a stable man?” is a question most Tarot readers are asked. And the answer is almost always the same.
Because you’re trying in the wrong direction. Stability doesn’t come from another source. It comes from within us. And when we realise that we have no choice but to be responsible and accountable for our own selves, whether it’s pleasant or not we reach that space of stability and security.
A better question to ask the Tarot is;
“What do I need to learn if I want to attract a long term relationship into my life?”
Learn from your mistakes. Did you feel uncomfortable when he was out of sight? Did you always send many many more messages than you received? Did he get irritated when you asked him too many questions, especially about his friends. Did you stop meeting your friends because he became your priority. Did your plans revolve around his availability. Did he begin to avoid you when you acted needy? These were just a few of the signs.
Start going inwards. Become your own best friend. Find a space of peace that belongs to you and only you. Don’t expect it to happen in a day. But dont give up on trying either. Sooner or later you will begin to radiate a sense of self assuredness and stability that will not only draw the right men to you, it will show you that before we love another we have to love ourselves.
The wise ones have told us that no phase of life lasts. Even
the toughest of times have to be replaced by a period of pure good energy. A slow and dull time is always replaced by a
hectic phase that sometimes catches us off guard. A good time does appear. A
time when the unemployed find jobs, the lonely find love , the broke get money and
the disappointed receive pleasant surprises. These phases can be a brief
incident or a series of positive experiences that gradually unfolds in our
lives and it can also be described as a feeling of unexplained optimisim.
Something good is about to happen and it will. It may not last very long but it
will be a welcome relief.
In Tarot this phase of the soul’s journey is perfectly
described by the appearance of the upright Wheel of Fortune, a truly special
card. The tenth card in the Major Arcana it describes the path of the Sun
across the sky, revealing how Life is constantly in motion. Some readers call
it fate, others call it destiny while many just say it’s a time when Lady Luck
is smiling down at you and only you. Something good has been put in motion in your
life and it’s time to grab the opportunities taking full advantage of its
breath of pure, positive energy.
Visually most Tarot decks depict the wheel with human and
mythical symbols attached to it revealing that no being spared the wheels of
time and karma. Some cards depict people with different emotions like joy,
sorrow, anger etc on the 8 spokes of the wheel.
Not a very common card to receive in a Tarot session, most
readers will smile upon seeing it in an upright position and proceed to answer
in affirmatives with the most positive outcomes. If it does come reversed,
slowdowns or disappointments may be seen depending on the question asked. Special
attention is always given to the Wheel of Fortune, a card that is indeed
significant and memorable and many Tarot readers have expressed a shift of
energies during a session, describing how the advent of the card made the
reading lighter and happier.
However since a Tarot session is dependent on your question
and based on the time of a reading, the meaning of the upright Wheel of Fortune
alters with the kind of question you ask.
Here are a few general examples of differing meanings with
If it’s a general forecast for the next 3 months, 6 months,
12 months or even few years the Wheel of Fortune appears as a good omen. Things
are moving in your favour and luck favours you.
If the question is related to a new love interest, this
Major Arcana card reveals destiny is at play, the both of you were meant to
fall in love and an energy as strong as love can never be resisted or controlled.
We must fall in love.
Job seekers find an affirmative to their queries of finding
employment. Energies start moving in your favour. If you’ve applied for
multiple jobs and haven’t heard from the company you can be sure they will wake
up and call you.
If the reading is about potential business ideas the Wheel
of Fortune foretells profitability and a lucky start.
In spiritual questions the appearance of this card reveals
blessings from the Universe and a nudge towards what you were born to do in this
And if the question about health related matters, the card
comes as a welcome relief indicating recuperation and recovery. Good health is
restored but with a lesson to be more conscious of your health.
Whatever be the question or situation, the upright Wheel of
Fortune reminds us that opportunity never knocks twice. Don’t get too
complacent, thinking the good times will always last. Make sure you maximise
the potential of this whiff of positivity while it’s around. Remember, the
wheels of time are in constant motion and the wise ones were correct when they
told us never to take the good times for granted. Even good luck comes with an
