It does seem as if women in the moment of need turn to every possible means to try and gain a bigger understanding of what is happening.
I have tried just about everything over the years. My first trip to a medium was as I was leaving college. She predicted two marriages and a move abroad. I returned to various other psychics, tarot readers and mediums over the years especially when I was feeling most insecure.
I also started to read tarot cards myself, teaching myself from a book. I had a few ladies ask me if I could read the cards for them and they seemed to think I had ‘talent’ that I ‘knew’ what was going to happen to them. My confidence grew and I discovered I was good at something. The trouble is I was so insecure that after making a cup of tea my first task of the day would be to read my cards.
One day I decided enough was enough and I threw them away, book, cards and semi precious stones kept with them to keep them ‘energised’!
But how many people run their lives with the assistance of these means?
I’m sure Cheryl would love to know what’s going to happen, where she’ll be in a year’s time and is she doing the right thing. But I think you have to take a decision and follow it through as hard as that may be.
I will admit though to having a sneaky read of my stars each month and to getting cross with Mystic Meg should she fail to get it right.
Sometimes I have cut out a certain prediction, kept it in my purse, for courage, inspiration or just a keepsake and re read it later saying ‘Wow, it came true!’
Maybe I made it come true myself, maybe it was the stars, planets and various astrological persuasions? Who knows?
Just to prove my point I’m going to copy a bit from a prediction I’ve been carrying around since 2003. I cut it out of an Elle (British) magazine and it was a 15 year cycle.
In 2003, I found myself alone, single and scared about my future. I ‘needed’ to have some certainties and this is what I found
2003 – 2008
This period of wonderful upheaval is all about trusting….a new life direction…your life will fill with new people, major career advancement, exciting family events…an intense love bond.
I left Italy, started up in the UK, brand new job, new man (the best ever) and the birth of our twins in July 08.
2008 – 2013
….a dynamic period for love, esp between 2010 – 2013 when marriage is accented. You and your partner will design a home, travel and expand a social world. You’ll nurture a family, build up a business and donate generously
Well! We have spoken about marriage but there’s always something else that needs the money so it slips down the priority list. New home (tick) just bought, not too sure about the business aspect though or the donations! We’ll have to wait and see.
Note: 3/7/2014 – we got married 9/3/2013
2013 – 2018
A supercharged era, you are freed from managing other people’s lives and a demanding career. Around 2015-2016 you’ll take a risk and end up winning.
And there you have it. I don’t live by this piece of paper but it’s nice to look back on every now and then and check to see. I only wish I knew the name of the astrologer so I could Google her.
How about you? Do you use tarot or astrology in your daily life? would you be tempted to consult a medium? I’d love to hear.
