Tarot Readings by Archna Shukla

April – June 2010

Aries - March 21 to April 20

It is momentum time now. Life will pick up speed over next three months. There will be many opportunities and leads thrown at you, I see you in confusion over which option to choose. Ultimately, I see you satisfied. There may be a vice to contend with or a control issue which may bother you, but gradually you prevail.


Taurus - April 21 to May 21

You may hit a rough patch over the next three months. You may feel overwhelmed and dissatisfied with a situation. There may be rumours around you and incompatibility with people close to you. There could be a collapse of a situation and you may feel stuck or trapped, unable to get off the merry-go-round, but the good news is you will!


Gemini - May 22 to June 21

This is a period of finances. The good news is there will be money to invest and finances to stabilise and plan the future. The not so good news will be that there may be a cash crunch or expenditure to contend with and that may cause some delays and instability. However the larger canvas for the year is immense wealth. This phase is temporary.


Cancer - June 22 to July 22

Decision making time. I see you standing in a door, unable to decide whether to go in or out. Some projects / relationships will collapse and end and new doors will open. I see you restless and craving to be on the move. There will be travel for sure or momentum of some kind. By June end there will be much more clarity of direction and the fun will begin.


Leo - July 23 to August 21

The sun shines very bright on Leos this quarter. I see great healing and balance being restored for you spiritually. I see hope taking shape and possibly the start of a new cycle of life. There may be some delays but there will be celebrations and happiness. An old pattern of life may repeat itself causing some helplessness but that too is temporary. Enjoy!

Virgo - August 22 to September 23

A good phase lies ahead. Tremendous socializing and networking with new contacts and contracts. Also expansion at the work front – I see you very busy with both people and work. There will also be a lot of travel. You may feel a little low sometimes, withdrawn in a shell but the upbeat momentum will keep you going. People from the past can also come back into your life.


Libra - September 24 to October 23

There is a lot of change coming up on the curve for the better. This change will herald in a phase of better finances and new sources of income for you. The trick is to be able to recognise an opportunity when it is before you. There will be doubts and mood swings. Some old situations will be replayed but luck will steer you in the right direction.


Scorpio - October 24 to November 22

A great second quarter Scorpios – I see honey and money. New sources of income, new projects, and new ideas. I see you very busy on the work front. There may be doubts and conflicts but the financial path is clear. Then there is a very fertile period for all kinds of partnerships both professionally and personally. I foresee a possible engagement or even a marriage ceremony. For some, a young energetic person will play an important role.


Sagittarius - November 23 to December 22


A good period for finance, overseas could play a significant role. I feel there will be a dilemma or a conflict of interest but you will resolve it comfortably. Also a time for Medicare, some elderly person may need medical care or you could be concerned with a child’s problem. That may give you some sleepless nights. Take care.


Capricorn - December 23 to January 20

Time to turn inwards and introspect your deepest thoughts – you could be withdrawing into a shell or feeling a bit reclusive. Not to fear Capricornians – this is proof that you are shedding old skin. You may feel insecure in your space and may feel a conflict about wanting to return to your roots – just follow your heart and not your mind for a change.


Aquarius - January 21 to February 19

Intelligent as you may be, this is a time of some self-doubt and feeling a disconnection from surrounding people and space. Being a loner, you look inwards for solace but now the cosmos asks for a balance between outer world and you. You will have to learn to sacrifice and adjust with the world around you. This effort will take time – so hang in there!


Pisces - February 20 to March 20

Occasional mood swings and low grade depression could plague you but actually they are the barometer of your emotional health. Take heed. There is travel and resolution of pending problems. You may feel betrayed or let down by some persons but your very astute and practical side deals with this and moves on without any serious damage to you.
