Danke nochmal Eckhart Tolle for reminding me to return to the present moment:)
“As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love – even the most simple action.”
“Watch any plant or animal and let it teach you acceptance of what is, surrender to the Now. Let it teach you Being. Let it teach you integrity — which means to be one, to be yourself, to be real. Let it teach you how to live and how to die, and how not to make living and dying into a problem.” Eckhart Tolle
In all honesty, I could not bring myself to write my regular Monthly forecast. It would be so trite to write the things I’ve written about for the past 10 years while the world was experiencing such grief and loss. I do hope you understand my reasons and am grateful you choose to join me as I explore the Lessons we need to learn from this Pandemic that’s taken so much peace so suddenly from so many of us. Call it an act of God. Call it a conspiracy. Call it a Law of Nature. The Coronavirus has become a household word and it’s here to teach us all something.
Each day has become a gift. The present moment has become a gift Cherish it. Give something back to the planet.
And there is so much to be thankful for. Our list of blessings increases with our mindfulness doesn’t it?
But WHY is all this happening to you, me, the entire human race? To teach us valuable life lessons to help us evolve and get out of the bubble we’d been in? To remind us that Lessons will repeat themselves until we learn. To give us the choice. Of Evolve or Repeat?
What do the Tarot cards have to say?
and the Tarot assures me that there is HOPE there is RECOVERY there is a NEW ORDER but first we need to learn.
Have a look at your sunsign.
If you’ve found yourself at a fullstop in life, you may be denying something within. Time to take more charge of your life and depend on fewer people. They’ve shown you their true colours. Time to march on. And knowing you, you will do it.
For every shadow there’s a ray of light. For every tear drop shed there’s a smile. You’ve understood the cycles of highs and lows and learnt that nothing lasts. A part of you is ready for achieving something significant this year. Nobody can stop you but your own thoughts.
As you discover the lies you’ve been living with, a part of you may no longer wish to associate with those who’ve used you or deceived you. You may realise a larger purpose to your life and associate yourself with a cause. Just get your finances in order before you take a leap.
You’re stronger than you think and your deepest fear is only a figment of your imagination. You’ve learnt to express yourself instead of repressing your true feelings about someone or something. A creative side is waking up within you.
How much do you truly need? Reassess your life and your needs practically. All your answers are already inside you but don’t distract yourself from inner reflection and introspection.
Love is forever and even though your old flames have moved on with their lives, there’s still a flame that burns bright. Maybe that is the secret to getting through? Maybe it’s time to whisper out what you feel to the one you love the most.
Crossroads come for a reason. Choosing between a new career path or the tried and tested. Staying single or marrying the special someone. The answers will unfold. And you’ll be glad you to took the right path.
Solitude and instrospection has its advantages. You’re able to think of life from a broader angle now and understand relationships a little better. Honesty with self and others is the best policy to prevent a misunderstanding.
Staying busy brings a different kind of peace. Sorting, decluttering, reorganising and cleaning helps to make space for something better, something new.
Karma has a way of popping out just when we least expect it. The more you resist the changes in a relationship, the more it will hurt. Forgiveness does not mean what they did was okay, it means for peace of mind, you just have to let them go.
After the darkness will come the dawn. There is hope, there is relief, but only after processing the pain and the strife inside. A cycle ends and a new cycle begins. How will you make it different this time?
Don’t underestimate yourself or your abilities. The time has come to have greater self belief and greater focus. Your dreams can come true and more and more people will see your greatness. But first you need to believe in yourself. Listen to the voice that tells you can.
We’re all connected. We’re all in this together as human beings. And we’ll all emerge transformed in some way. It’s not easy, and it’s not smooth but we’ll do it.

This morning I heard a solitary conch blow in the distance.
Someone somewhere was evoking the Gods. Invoking blessings, peace, health and happiness. Purifying the atmosphere with its vibrations, ringing out the primordial sound “Om’ into the atmosphere. Removing the darkness bit by bit.
Someone somewhere was praying for all of us.
And to that someone somewhere, I will always be grateful. And I pray their prayers are heard.
Om Asato Maa Sad-Gamaya | Tamaso Maa Jyotir-Gamaya | Mrtyor-Maa Amrtam Gamaya | Om Shaantih Shaantih Shaantih ||
Meaning: 1: Om, (O Lord) Keep me not in (the Phenomenal World of) Unreality, but make me go towards the Reality (of Eternal Self), 2: Keep me not in (the Ignorant State of) Darkness, but make me go towards the Light (of Spiritual Knowledge), 3: Keep me not in (the World of) Mortality, but make me go towards the World of Immortality (of Self-Realization), 4: Om, Peace, Peace, Peace.
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”
With the rising anxiety levels around all of us, it’s hard not to get affected by the news, views and the forwards. Meditation, exercise and taking frequent breaks from social media and the News and drawing can help bring peace and clarity.
Art can be especially therapeutic in times like these. An effective way to release built up stress, alleviate depression and bring clarity and focus, a simple box of crayons and paints is a wonderful and peaceful way to release whatever it is that is bubbling inside all of us. And if you don’t have access to colour, just doodle the stress out.
As the panic spreads in irrational ways across the world, as newscasters scream out the headlines, as losses rise, it’s getting harder to stay unaffected
And when I turned to my deck this morning for further answers, the cards seemed to point at healing and renewal for everyone at every level.
At first glance the spread is pointing at Historical times. We are all living in a time where nothing’s been like this before and nothing will ever stay the same again. Megachanges – be it in the form of climate disruptions, destruction of forests, extinction of many species and losses economically over the past few years have been leading upto this. The Coronavirus of 2020 will go down in history as the turning point for the world at every level – mentally, emotionally, financially and spiritually.
Situation – Intuition Reversed.
When we stop listening to our instincts and allow ourselves to get drowned in the multiple voices of fear and alarm, we go into a state of paranoia. Fences go higher. And fear based behaviour takes over. People go irrational as they start fist fighting for the last bag of toilet roll, or they make claims of curing coronavirus with body fluids or start using sanitary napkins as masks. More cases of Anxiety and Depression and the effects of prolonged isolation will affect interpersonal behaviour across the world. Yes, yes we know all this.
But how do we fight this?
From inside, and here’s what has helped me deal with the info overload and I hope it helps you.
Deep breathing relieves anxiety. Try inhaling slowly to a count of 6, holding your breath and exhaling to a count of 6. Do it as an SOS or during
Limit your time watching the news and reading the forwards on social media. If it’s affecting you detox for a few days.
Spend more time with Nature. Have your coffee in the park. Tend to your houseplants. Eat more fruits with vitamin C. Keep washing your hands
Do something for a cause you believe in. Feed a hungry soul. Go beyond yourself , feel compassion.
Challenges over the next 6 months (March -September 2020) – Material and Spiritual Prosperity and Spiritual Union Reversed
Such a powerful card in a position of challenge points towards greater economic losses for industries across borders. Spending and saving habits will change. Currency rates will drop. And divisions will increase in terms of travel restrictions, trade restrictions, racism and acts of violence as multiple groups try to claim their power or assert their rights. Fear will incite extreme behaviour in individuals and communities. Again the answer is inside all of us. Identify your triggers. Take a reality check of your finances, plan expenditure wisely, detox regularly from social media and toxic people and find your space of calm. Metta meditations are beautiful and effective and involve sitting in a meditative space saying
“I am healthy. I am safe. I am at peace” then thinking of someone or some people and saying “We are healthy. We are safe. We are at peace.” help induce states of positive calm within. And raise the planetary vibrations from a space of darkness to light.
Outcome after 6 months (September 2020-September 2021) – Firm Foundation, Recognition and Renewal
Energies will reconsolidate and recalibrate. The turning point begins slowly on a positive note. More cases of Healing, Recovery. Significant advances in Medical Discoveries. New alliances between nations. More sale of weapons. renewed demands on oil. New Trade laws. Travel routes open up. Shift in School and University timings and modes of teaching. More Plant Based Diets. Establishment of new organisations in the field of health, mental health. New sources of income. Younger and younger leaders getting elected.

The Tarot gives an indication of your life as it exists in the present moment and how it is most likely to evolve based on your present patterns of belief. The insights are based on whatever energies are around you right now and if these energies change, so might the outcome. At the end of it, we as human beings do control our destiny and are responsible for our decisions. We possess supreme free will. And we must never take the pronouncements to be carved in stone.
