Tarot Readings by Archna Shukla

July – September 2010

Aries - March 21 to April 20

Big changes should have already taken place now that the cupboard is empty to receive new energies. Be alert to new opportunities and be careful of being let down or betrayed by someone close. New sources of income and home roots are emphasized. A lot must have changed between May – June.

Taurus - April 21 to May 21

Upheaval times ahead. There could be hospitalisation or surgery or a parting of ways or an ending of some legal kind. Betrayal or sabotage has to be watched out for. The good news is some women will be very supportive and romance will soothe you. You need to be strong and brave.

Gemini - May 22 to June 21

A time when destiny has the reins of time in its hands. You may be socially very active now and quite involved with your neighbourhood. You may feel a little low on confidence or health but sudden unexpected windfall of good luck will see you through.

Cancer - June 22 to July 22

A good time for relationships at all levels. Especially relationships of the heart. Also a good time for partnerships. Some uncertainties in decision-making, but slow and steady will win the race now. You will turn inwards for spiritual sustenance and inner strength will guide you in decisions.

Leo - July 23 to August 21

Cannot rule out a surgery or a clinical check-up even as I write it should be happening. You may feel listless and uncertain and also distracted from work, unable to concentrate but you will be fine. Just go with the flow. You feel more home centric than usual which is quire alright. Enjoy your space and silence and heal.

Virgo - August 22 to September 23

What a combination of cards! Affairs of the heart, passion and extra marital affairs galore. Any three-way relationship is very possible now. Also a period of deception and secrets and confidences but you will also have a lot of fun. Most important is the fact that through it all you retain your grip on the circumstances and you keep the vantage point.

Libra - September 24 to October 23

Sometimes our destiny haunts us in the form of patterns – I see a pattern from the past repeating itself now causing you to feel helpless or stuck or trapped. So you may therefore feel overwhelmed or sad but since this is karmic – grin and bear. It too shall pass. New sources of income will keep the hope alive.

Scorpio - October 24 to November 22

A dilemma will keep you in two minds and the conflict may give you sleepless nights. I see you worrying and agonizing. It could be over a child or a parent’s poor health. You may get gripped by in security and go through emotional mood swings but eventually you will find peace of mind.

Sagittarius - November 23 to December 22

The sun is shining on your head and you have hope and healing being bestowed upon you. Big changes in your life this year and they should be manifesting just about now. You will add a new dimension to your work and new skills and techniques will be used by you. There may be some health issues to reckon with but great fun in partnerships.

Capricorn - December 23 to January 20

You will be in the eye of the storm – there may be hospitalization for you or a loved one. There could also be a betrayal of office politics or sabotage. Any of the above will lead to a major collapse of a situation and you could get very overwhelmed by the surrounding circumstances. Still if you keep your head you will emerge stronger and find yourself in a new direction.

Aquarius - January 21 to February 19

A great time for introspection and solitary confinement. Nothing new for your brilliance dear Aquarians – your genius often requires for you to retire into your shell to regenerate your energies and so you will. Disappointments and failures will have to b dealt with and conflicts will be sorted out and when the dust settles clarity will shine through.

Pisces - February 20 to March 20

Celebrations and happiness will fill the next few weeks. I see travel and shuttling between two bases quite frequently. Overseas may play significant role. There may be a few disappointments to contend with but they wont mar your happy state of being. A good period of life has begun.
