If you’ve been feeling out of sorts, like life has been a trial of late, you can blame the planet Mercury. For the past month the planet nearest the sun has been in retrograde which according to stargazers means the areas of life it rules are hampered.
Mercury is the planet that governs communication so when it’s standing still all hell breaks loose. One only has to look at the recent posturing by North Korea and the destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey to see the mark of Mercury Retrograde.
After four long weeks of chaos, Tuesday finally saw the planet move out of retrograde and into prograde. Hopefully, we should all start to feel the effects of this transition. Life should move a little smoother, we should all sleep a little lighter, and start to feel a little easier with the world around us.
To see what the Universe has in store for you during this next planetary phase take 30 to 60 seconds to look over the six images. Then close your eyes and relax. One image will stand out for you, emerge in your mind’s eye. This is the one that has a special meaning for you, a message from Mercury prograde. Read and take note of what it has to say. It is written in the stars…
Top Row Left
You have a journey ahead of you. There is a path that you are meant to take. Don’t worry that you may miss it or that you may take the wrong turn. Your guides have great Sat-Nav so will ensure you are in the right place at the right time. The journey will take you much further away where you will encounter new people, enjoy new experiences. Your emotions will be mixed. At times along to way you may feel scared, excited, hopeful or uncertain but trust you are being watched over and protected. Your past life has come to an end, a new one is beginning. It is divinely blessed and brimming with success.
Top Row Middle
No matter how often you have been told no, been hampered by rules and regulations, denied your right to be, you have not withdrawn or withered. In fact, it’s the very opposite, you’ve grown stronger in purpose and conviction. Your spirit unbroken. Your guides want you to know they are with you through ever challenge, by your side, encouraging you to be rise above it all, to be free. Your perseverance has paid off. You are now at a stage where you have all the power, you hold all the cards. Don’t pick at the salad bar when you can feast on the grand buffet. Whether others judge or admire, find it shocking or inspiring, that is about them not you. It is your time to fly.
Top Row Right
Sometimes there is a need to focus on the new, seek out wild paths, develop untapped resources and explore fresh possibilities. The thrill of hope, inspiration and optimism can be an exciting draw. Being open to new possibilities can be healthy, keep us feeling young at heart. However, at this time you are being asked to question what is the motivation behind your current desire for a new adventure. If fear, boredom or lack of commitment is the real reason then you are being urged to stop and look clearly at what you already have in your life. Now is not the time to step away from what you are cultivating, even if it seems to have lost its sparkle or run out of energy. Success is just a breath away.
Bottom Row Left
Instinct can tell you when something is not as it seems, such as when a person’s words do not match their intentions. You don’t have to think about how you know, you just know. Instinct is a natural part of your body’s wisdom and when combined with the heart’s intuition can be a powerful driving force to living your life to its full potential. At this time, you are being advised to listen and to trust your instinct. Do not dismiss feelings or hunches as merely judgment rather than the truth presenting itself to you. Perhaps you are sensing that a relationship is not healthy for you, despite a long history and no particular change. You may have a gut feeling that a project at work is wrong for the business. Listen and respond to your instinct and life will flow more easily.
Bottom Row Middle
Now is the time to leap. Do not hesitate. Do not fear. You don’t need to have all the answers to know that everything is going to work out perfectly. You simply have to trust. This is not a time for small tentative steps. You need to be brave. Be bold. Be definite. A big gesture is required. Take a running leap, with your eyes wide open – you don’t want to miss anything! Don’t worry about whether or not you’ll seem foolish or if you are ready. Know that you are in harmony with the universe. It is your “I can” moment which your guides advise only come along a handful of times in a lifetime. You don’t want to miss this opportunity, to look back with regret. Take a deep breath – and go for it!
Bottom Row Right
Life can sometimes get a little overwhelming, especially when energy reserves are low. You are being given permission to step back from your outer world, to find retreat in your inner one. Your guides advise now is not a time to keep taking in more information, or to push yourself to have more experiences, meet new people or take new risks. That will all happen again soon. For now, create time and space. Tap into your inner world where you will find the peace and clarity you are currently seeking. The answers lie within the stillness. Do not worry about taking time out from the world. Do not fear you are turning your back on life. This inner work will reveal something special, something that needs to be drawn from the unconscious and brought to the surface. Silence is golden.
For thousands of years, crystals have been used as a source of healing, as amulets for protection, and as a tool to help connect to the vibrations of The Universe.
These minerals have been growing within the Earth, formed over millions of years, shaped by volcanic heat and waters, and charged with natural elemental powers.
In many cultures it is believed these natural wonders each contain a specific healing, personal empowerment or protection vibration that when tapped can have a profound effect on our physical and mental wellbeing; the crystal’s energy balancing and realigning atoms within our own bodily makeup.
It is said that whatever you need - whether you’re aware of the need or not - the right crystal guide will have a way of finding you.
Take 30 to 60 seconds to look over the six images of crystals. Then close your eyes and relax. One image will stand out for you, emerge in your mind’s eye. This is the one that has a special meaning for you, a message from your crystal guides. Read and take note of what they have to say.
Rose Quartz (Top row left)
If Rose Quartz has drawn you to its vibration today you are being reminded to be as kind to yourself as you are to others. Forgive yourself for past mistakes and let go of old hang-ups and feelings of anger, jealousy and resentment. Accept and love who you are and remember if others cannot embrace this it’s their own inadequacies, not yours. This crystal wants to empower you, to help you find your mojo. It magnifies creativity and imagination so if you’re wanting to write that book, start that new business venture, or even create that new life this vibration is saying this is a great time to do so. Step into this period of harmony and watch the magic happen.
Blue Lace Agate (Top row middle)
What are you not saying to someone that they need to hear? This is the question being asked of you by Blue Lace Agate. Your intuition, gut instinct, is telling you what you need to do and what you need to say, but something is stopping you. Is it a fear of being judged? Maybe, you’re frightened that you might upset someone dear? The gentle vibration of Blue Lace Agate urges you to express the feelings that are in your heart honestly. No matter how hard the situation may seem, this vibration is saying if you speak the truth with kindness, you will receive a favourable outcome. Peace can only come when you allow yourself to freely express what is within.
Carnelian (Top row right)
This is not a time to back down or to settle for second best. If Carnelian has spoken to you, drawn you to its vibration, life is about to get very interesting indeed. This bad boy means business. He’ll shake you up and kick in to touch any feelings of apathy or insecurities that may have recently crept into your world. He’s like your very own Mr Motivator, arming you with courage, drive, ambition, heaps of vitality, and a “get real and focused” attitude to push you to achieve not just what you need but what you want. With this highly-charged vibration driving you forward towards new opportunities that Porsche Spyder 218 you’ve been secretly Googling might just turn from a dream into a reality.
Amethyst (Bottom row left)
Are you partying a little too hard? Spending more with the turf accountant? Has the one glass of wine after work turned into a bottle? Another Krispy Kreme won’t hurt, will it? There is something that you are doing to excess that has drawn you to Amethyst’s soothing vibration. In Ancient Greek Amethystos means not to be intoxicated and Amethyst is in your world right now to help guide you away from any form of addiction or extreme behaviour. This purple crystal is here to remind you that you do not need to reward yourself with excesses of any kind to feel good. Embrace this beautiful vibration and you’ll start to find more physical, mental and emotional balance – and a newfound confidence to say “no”.
Tiger’s Eye (Bottom row middle)
If you have been challenged to look into Tiger’s Eye then you are being warned there is somebody in your orbit that is causing problems behind your back. To your face this person is your friend but Tiger’s Eye vibration is calling them out as false and untrue. They are not to be trusted and they mean to bring you down. Don’t worry though to be forewarned is to be forearmed. Tiger’s Eye is offering you protection from malice or unseen threats. To know whether a person is the real deal and is reliable Tiger’s Eye is asking you to tap into his protective vibration and trust your feelings. It will soon become clear just who or what is the unknown enemy.
Sunstone (Bottom row right)
You are being given permission to enjoy yourself, to do something for pleasure not business if Sunstone has caught your eye. This sparkling vibration is encouraging you to live in the present, to seize the day and to remind you that this life is no dress rehearsal. When is the last time you actually did something for yourself without feeling guilty? Sunstone wants to see you having a little more fun, add a dash more pizazz to your life. Book a random day off work and take yourself off to a spa or play a round of golf. Read that book you’ve been meaning to for the past six months, or visit that Tate Modern exhibition. You’ve always wanted to travel on the Orient Express so, Sunstone is saying, go on and treat yourself.
Mackenzie Crook shot to fame playing self-important paper salesman Gareth Keenan in the BBC comedy The Office alongside its creator Ricky Gervais.
Since then, the actor has gone on to star in several of the Pirates Of The Caribbean blockbusters in which he plays Ragetti, a pirate with an ill-fitting wooden eye, has performed in numerous theatre productions for which he has received critical success, written an award-nominated children’s book and has scripted, starred and directed in the Bafta-winning comedy Detectorists . Oh, and he’s also appeared in HBO’s mega hit Game of Thrones.
The actor’s latest venture sees him taking on the role of vampire hunter Larousse in the star-studded British comedy horror movie Eat Locals, directed by Jason Flemyng, which opens in cinemas September 1.
We love a man who can make us laugh so it was with a light heart we laid out the crystals to see find out more about the marvellous Mr Crook.
Scratch The Surface
He’s built up a sizeable bank balance by playing nerd-like and haphazard characters but Mackenzie is no fool. The Tarot suggests this is one smart cookie who when presented with an opportunity grasps it with both hands and makes it his own.
Our guides say the 45-year-old has never had a career plan but simply knew from an early age he wanted to be an entertainer. He feels comfortable in this world which at times can make him a little lazy; he’s of the belief “what’s for you won’t go by you”.
Our Witch Twitch says for the most part this is true but the star must be careful not to become too complacent or else this Crook will be robbed of his future success.
Our guides show Mackenzie is at one with Spirit animal totem Raccoon. Extremely courageous and remarkably ferocious for one so small, Raccoon will defend itself, rather than flee, when it feels threatened.
With this little chap as a guide, Mackenzie knows instinctively when to let things slide and when to stand up for himself. In Native American folklore, mask-wearing Raccoon is seen as a trickster, not a malicious one, but a light-hearted mischief maker which helps to shape Mackenzie’s character.
Running with Raccoon fills Mackenzie with a love of exploration. The actor has a natural curiosity. He’s interested in the wonders of the world and the marvels of minutia.
He’s keen to constantly explore new realms, and to take part in new pastimes. Our Witch Twitch says Raccoon reminds Mackenzie that he can always change who and what he is to what he wants to be.
Love & Relationships
The Tarot suggests despite having many acquaintances Mackenzie likes to keep his inner circle small that way he can spend quality time with those people who truly have meaning for him.
The crystals show family is extremely important to The Office star; he likes nothing better than getting the Crook Clan together for an afternoon shindig.
Our guides say he has a strong affection for his parents, which has grown since having his own children. The star will always choose his family over his wants and desires – even if they’re presented to him on a plate.
Where love is concerned, the Tarot suggests Mackenzie puts his heart and soul into relationships – and he expects it to be returned. He’s a great partner but he does need to be adored.
We’re guessing his wife of 16 years Lindsay knows how to handle these demands. It’s what keeps this relationship going strong. Our Witch Twitch warns Mackenzie to curb jealous tendencies that may rear from time to time; they will only push away those he loves.
Over the next couple of months, there may be some tricky times for the 45-year-old funnyman.
Our guides suggest it may be connected with some form of words, maybe on a contract or a new project like a script or manuscript. Mackenzie is advised to remain objective and to keep a clear head. As long as he has truth on his side all is well.
The Tarot indicates that a move into film directing is well starred. It will come after the star has created a couple more small screen outings, projects he writes as well as directs. He must remain confident. He has the ability to achieve great success. Why swim in a pond when you have an ocean in which to play?
He is advised to carry or wear a piece of carnelian. This will help raise the actor’s positive vibration as well as boosting his self-esteem. Our Witch Twitch says Mackenzie should have no regrets.
A$AP Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, is one of the most prominent rap artists to have emerged in the last decade, having exploded into the mainstream after the critical success of his debut mixtape Live.Love.A$AP.
In just six short years the Harlem artist has gone from the minor leagues to the majors, collaborating with a host of big names including Drake, Mariah Carey, Rod Stewart, and Justin Timberlake.
The multi-talented A$AP Mob front man is coming to The O2 on Bank Holiday Sunday (August 27) as part of the Boy Better Know Takeover , a one-day multi-discipline festival featuring music, Five-A-Side football tournaments, skateboarding, BMXing, roller disco, gaming events and cinema.
We’re rather intrigued by the US tabloid fodder favourite so it was with a keen mind and deft hand we cast the runes and flipped the tarot cards to see what fires the “braggodocious” young gun.
Scratch The Surface
There is no questioning that this brash young rapper has attitude. He burst onto the rap scene back in 2011, telling the world to wake up to his genius. He has an impulsive, devil-may-care attitude but underneath it all, the tarot suggests, this is a young spirit who has had to grow up fast. He’s seen death around him, rob him of loved ones. Too close for comfort, the 28-year-old has hot-footed it forward. The fear of knowing means this one is not going the way of the ghetto. Calling out the shadows, flirting with fate, he has a point to prove and the wizarding skills to shine. What you see is a carefully crafted veneer overlaying the real deal. He is you but in a totally different universe. Our Witch Twitch says for Rocky to stay ahead of the curve, to reach the dizzying as-yet unexplored heights he can reach, he needs to remain true – and to never forget there but for the grace of God go I.
Our guides show Rocky is at one with Spirit animal totem Woodpecker. With this magical spirit bird as his guide, the East Coast MC has the power of rhythm in his blood. He is tuned to the heartbeat of the Earth and the cycles that rule it. He instinctively knows the answer before the question. By drawing on the earth’s energies and vibrations, Woodpecker provides Rocky with the ability to grab every ones’ attention with the simplest of words. He understands the power of both the spoken and written word and ensures Rocky uses his language sparingly and precisely to get across his point. His power lies in being able to inform and raise awareness. Our Witch Twitch says Woodpecker reminds Rocky to listen more clearly to the subtle energies that surround him so that his intuition, which will never lead him wrong, can guide.
Love & Relationships
The Tarot suggests the Purple Swag rapper has a great sense of humour which makes him an attractive guy to be around. He’s never on the sidelines, always the centre of any party, the sun around whom everyone else orbits. He’s a generous individual with both his time and cash. Our guides say he needs to be a little bit more selective when it comes to those he bestows this generosity wealth upon. Women flock around him like wasps to liquorice. The crystals show he loves beauty in all its forms. He’s a romantic and loves to wine and dine anything fine. Anyone who catches this chap’s eye is in for a bling time. When it comes to girlfriends, he’s in the business of trading up. His current rumoured squeeze, supermodel Kendall Jenner (pictured above), is where it’s at now. We'd like to think Kendall’s a bit of a keeper though… But the boy’s still young, with plenty more along for the ride. Our Witch Twitch says there may be plenty of fillies but Rocky needs to remember there are very few thoroughbreds.
Life is fast and furious and it’s not about to slow down any time soon for Rocky. Despite all the negative press – and the occasional ill-thought-out remarks (Rita, he is sorry for those lyrics) - he’s actually one of the good guys who does give a hoot about people. The Tarot suggests in the next few months there could be a new property move. An ocean is calling and will help ease the insomnia. Our guides advise he should negotiate harder on the price because a better deal is to be had. The crystals show someone is trying to get script into Rocky’s hand. It’s important that it lands because it will bring Rocky to a new audience. However, there are people with loud voices and even louder opinions blocking the way because they don’t want the boy to grab the Golden Snitch. The genie needs to be released from the bottle because only then can the wishes be granted. Our Witch Twitch says Rocky is advised to listen to the one who whispers, never roars, in the room.
Ryan Reynolds is one of the most popular and likeable actors in Hollywood. The Canadian born star has carved his way from box office champion to critics’ darling, earning himself a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and being named by Time magazine as one of “The 100 Most Influential People” in the world in the process.
In his latest silver screen outing the 40-year-old actor stars as a haphazard gun for hire in The Hitman’s Bodyguard alongside acting giant Samuel L Jackson (in cinemas tomorrow, Friday, August 18).
Ever since we saw the handsome star in TV sitcom Two Guys And A Girl we’ve had a teensy weensy crushette on him so we were delighted to divine his hidden depths, to read his runes, to find out the man behind the mask.
Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool
Scratch The Surface
He comes across as super cool and confident but underneath it all the tarot suggests Ryan has moments of insecurity, especially where his acting skills are concerned. It’s as though he doubts his gifts and is just waiting for someone to rumble him, call him out on it. The Tarot shows that his laidback persona actually masks a person who is incredibly driven and disciplined, who has a desire to work hard and to prove to himself that his place in Hollywood is not a fluke. He’s a family man at heart and wants to be the provider. Our guides say this may at times cause conflict in his relationships because he may not always understand why the other person wants to work, too. He’s quick-witted and generous to a fault. He’s happiest when he’s surrounded by love ones, showering them with life’s luxuries. Our Witch Twitch says Ryan knows never to take for granted that which has been given because just as easy as it comes it can go.
Love & Relationships
The Tarot suggests family is incredibly important to the Deadpool star. It is his raison d’etre. He’s very close to family members especially when it comes to his siblings. The crystal ball shows he still enjoys playing around with them, sharing memories of when they were naughty and reckless children. Our guides say because of his close upbringing he makes for a great parent. His girls, James and Ines, are his world. In relationships, he is a hopeless romantic and, the Tarot suggests, he likes to be seduced – and do the seducing, too. Our guides say, he doesn’t set out to break hearts – that’s not his style – but unfortunately due to his mercurial nature it can be a by-product. Not every girl gets to keep this boy. Just ask former fiancée singer Alanis Morissette, who penned the ballad Torch about Reynolds when they split, and ex-wife actress Scarlett Johansson (our guides suggest a lack of family love played a part in this break up). Love is deep with his wife, Gossip Girl actress and his Green Lantern co-star Blake Lively. The Tarot suggests they share the same family values and relish being in their own little universe. Our Witch Twitch says, sorry girls, this one is for keeps.
Our guides show Ryan is at one with Spirit animal totem Goose. It may not be the sexiest of symbols but it is one of the most dynamic. With this magical spirit bird as his guide, the actor is likely to be ambitious to a fault. He sets goals for accomplishment, and always obtains them. The goose is determined to succeed at all cost - not for the approval of other - but those with this Native American animal symbol compete with their own internal foe. Goose can often make Ryan come across as domineering, he’s not he’s simply driven. Birds of a feather flock together; Ryan is best when he’s in a loving environment as it pushes him further to excel in all things he attempts. He’s passionate about those in his flock and will go to any lengths to protect them. Goose can also bring out a cheeky side to the actor which can have a people eating out of his hand. Our Witch Twitch says Goose reminds Ryan there are always new skies to fly.
If you think this guy is a star now you ain’t seen nothing yet. The Tarot shows this is only the beginning for the The Proposal star. His career is going to take a stellar leap after taking on a seriously successful movie role. It will bring him huge plaudits as well as a cabinet of gold. Our guides say a future onscreen partnership is likely to be testing, with advances made that are not reciprocated by Ryan. He needs to be careful this doesn’t get blown out of proportion, to brush it off and pretend that it’s all a bit of fun. This person has powerful friends. Our guides warn not to get on the wrong side of her! Although he’s at home in the city, a new house, with a view of the ocean, is going to bring much joy to Ryan and his family. It will be a retreat where he will relax with friends, the door always open, rooms always filled with laughter. The Tarot suggests within 18 months they’ll be another addition to the Reynolds’ family. Although there may be a slight complication surrounding this in the early stages. On a health note, the crystals advise Ryan to take up meditation, even if it’s a five-minute time out in his day. Our Witch Twitch says life is charmed but Ryan needs to watch out for those who wish to steal it.
Shaun Williamson is best known for playing hapless Barry Evans in popular BBC soap EastEnders. It’s a role that not only made him a household favourite but also pigeon hold him as an actor. Despite his character being killed off 13 years ago, to many he is and forever always will be ‘Barry from EastEnders’.
In a bid to shake off the memory, revive his career and prove to the viewing public there’s more in the repertoire than a balding, fat dodgy car dealer, the 51-year-old actor has signed up for this year’s Celebrity Big Brother, currently airing on Channel 5. In a bid to get some inside information on the actor and singer, we called on the crystals and cast the runes to find out if Shaun can ever lay Barry to rest.
Scratch The Surface
Although he is best known for playing a bumbling and naïve failure, our guides say Shaun is as sharp as a tack. He’s super smart – he did beat former Home Secretary David Blunkett and the BBC Middle East Editor and TV presenter Jeremy Bowen to lift the Celebrity Mastermind trophy – but he keeps this side of his personality under wraps. The tarot suggests he shouldn’t hide his light under bushel it’s partly because he does that he’s been typecast in the past. Shaun wants to be taken seriously as an actor, not simply remembered for his soap persona. There is a youngness about Shaun’s soul which helps him see the glass as half full rather than half empty. Despite not always getting the lucky break he’s optimistic about the future. He sets goals – always manageable ones – so as to ensure he is always moving forward. There’s nothing this chap likes better than to cross off the to-do-and-achieve list. Our Witch Twitch says luckily the actor will not have to live with the regret of not wearing slip on shoes.
Our guides show Shaun is at one with Spirit animal totem Snake. With this magical spirit animal as his guide, the actor is likely to be highly intuitive. He may not always know how he knows things but he instinctively does. This is not always easy to deal with, especially when it’s as though he can see right through people, see into their soul, see if they are being true or false. This is especially tough given the profession Sean’s chosen to work in! Snake makes it difficult for Shaun to hold his tongue or to show his displeasure at perceived injustice. Again this openness is not conducive to the world of acting where the egos of directors and producers are easily bruised. To ensure he always works in this town, he is advised to carry malachite in order to mask his true feelings. Snake shares enlightenment with Shaun. Our Witch Twitch says Snake reminds Shaun there is always another skin to be shed, a life cycle to live.
Love & Relationships
The Tarot suggests the actor enjoys his own company and is quite happy spending time in his head. He is advised not to get stuck in it! He is very selective when it comes to letting people into his life which is why his circle is limited. He has many acquaintances but few true friends. An independent soul, he often keeps to himself especially when going through turbulent times – which are far too often for the star’s liking. The dad of two is a great listener, always providing a shoulder to cry on. However, he’s not especially great when it comes to opening up to others. The tarot suggests Shaun needs to trust somebody with his feelings and emotions. It’s one way to gain wisdom and another perspective on things. It’s also a good way to win friends and influence others – and get more work! When it comes to romance, this guy plays for keeps (he’s been married to wife Melanie (pictured above) for 20 years). The tarot suggests he’s very romantic and, given the opportunity, incredibly passionate. Our Witch Twitch says be open to feel the force.
Appearing in Celebrity Big Brother is just what the cosmos ordered – or what Shaun put on his To-Do list to tick off. It’s his time to shine, a moment to remind people just why we love this self-effacing celeb. The tarot suggests he’ll go all the way but he must remember to keep his head while those around him lose theirs – which they will. Moving forward our guides say there is the potential to be part of a comedy duo or ensemble. The project will come to fruition through a woman, with red hair, who by chance meets Shaun in a green room. Someone with the initial ‘J’ is also going to prove a good contact for the star but it may mean a move to another part of the country or even further afield for a period of time. The theatre is well-starred but, our guides say, it doesn’t always need to be panto! On a health front, Shaun is urged to check his cholesterol. He may also need to look into taking some form of supplement such as iron or magnesium. However, don’t take our word for it. The message is coming through loud and clear: An all-over body check up is advised. It may be the answer to energy slumps. Our Witch Twitch says a new chapter of the story is ready to be written. However, the mind may be willing but the body may not be able if Shaun doesn’t play his part now…
With her elfin-like features and bushy brows, Cara Delevingne is one of the world’s most recognisable and sought-after models. She also happens to be one of the highest paid thanks to her campaigns with iconic fashion houses such as Chanel and Burberry.
But she’s not just a pretty face. Cara sings, plays drums and guitar, has designed collections for Mulberry and DKNY, and she is making a huge impression in the world of acting. Unlike most models who try to crossover into film Cara is proving she has a huge talent, with critics lapping up her performances.
Her latest big screen outing is in the Luc Besson-directed Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets , out in cinemas on August 4 in which she plays a 28th-century special ops officer. We’re fascinated by the captivating Cara so it was with relish we scried the crystal ball and laid out the cards to find out more about the model chameleon.
Scratch The Surface
Although she gives the impression of being a free spirit who goes with the flow, this girl likes to be in control of things. If a job’s worth doing it’s worth doing well.
The Tarot suggests despite being given the mantle of the Charlie Chaplin of the catwalk she has a fail-to-prepare-prepare-to-fail attitude. She is definitely no clown. Our guides say Cara needs to be kept busy, will do almost anything to stave off boredom which is why she throws herself into so many varied projects from modelling, acting and designing her own collections for Mulberry and DKNY to DJing, singing, and writing and releasing her own albums.
Don’t be fooled by the naughty-girl-breaks-the-rules persona; nothing is done by chance, everything is a calculated move.
The Tarot suggests Cara can be too easy-going at times and should avoid dwelling on trivial matters, especially gossip. Our Witch Twitch says Cara needs to be more selective about the company she keeps as not everyone who is drawn by her magnetic personality has a positive influence.

The beauty who has twice been awarded Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards gives the impression she’s super relaxed and laid-back when it comes to relationships. Boy or girl? She doesn’t want to be constrained by gender. An anything goes, kind of a gal.
However, the Tarot suggests, this is an act, a mask she wears to hide what she truly seeks. She’s so good at convincing the world of her ennui it’s almost like she’s morphed into a Vicomte de Valmont-type figure.
Our guides say this couldn’t be further from the truth. Cara craves to be in a loving and stable relationship. She wants an innocent love, the feeling of butterflies in the stomach, the safe haven of a loving union.
Beauty is important to the model-cum-actress. She likes to surround herself with exquisite things and people. The Tarot shows an older woman could enter Cara’s orbit in the next six months. This person will be chic, uber successful and act as a mentor to the muse in business and pleasure. Our Witch Twitch says the model needs to surrender to the one who wears the trousers.

Our guides show Cara is at one with Spirit animal totem Monkey. With this magical spirit animal as her guide, the aspiring actress has the ability to move through life in fluid and poetic fashion. Monkey spirit fills Cara with a penchant for practical jokes and good-hearted trickery.
However she is advised to choose the subjects of her tricks carefully. There’s a time and place for good humour. When this cheeky animal spirit encourages his charge to get up to mischief, make sure the humour is well-intended, and the brunt of the joke will take the meaning as it is intended.
Monkey shares with Cara the gift of compassion, understanding and bonding. Our Witch Twitch says Monkey reminds Cara that her journey on this planet is not a solitary one.

Wow! We’ve always been warned never to change our cross for another’s but if there’s one pair of sneakers we’d like to be slipping into it’s those of Cara.
The Tarot shows the next period of the beauty’s life is a glorious one. They’ll be times when the 24-year-old will want to pinch herself to see if it really is this good. Opportunities are flowing. However, it may be a case of “be careful of what you wish for”. Our guides warn Cara may become overwhelmed with the many choices with which she is presented.
She is advised to listen to the person with whom she shares a special heart secret – she knows who this is – as this will lead her to golden moments.
A role in an ensemble will bring her the accolades she craves, plus an exciting new relationship. We’re seeing a question mark. This could mean a decision needs to be made. Our Witch Twitch says the changeling needs to keep her focus.
Stockard Channing is a star of stage, film and TV best known for playing smart and sassy women from the wise-cracking Betty Rizzo in Grease to First Lady Abigail Bartlet in The West Wing . In a career that spans more than 50 years she’s won a number of awards including two Emmys and a Tony and has been nominated for an Oscar.
After an absence of more than 20 years, the 73-year-old actress returns to the West End stage in a new production of Alexi Kate Campbell’s Apologia , in which she plays a firebrand liberal matriarch, that will run at the Trafalgar Studios from July 29.
Despite her successes, we feel the New York-born actress has never truly reached the professional heights her talent warrants so it was with interest we cast the runes to find out more about the gorgeous Ms Channing.
Scratch The Surface
Although she is best-known for playing glamorous women who are always carefully coiffured and beautifully made up, our guides say Stockard prefers to keep it au natural. She dares to bare a make-up free face and feels more at home in a pair of hiking boots than a vertiginous heel.
The Tarot shows she loves being an actress, but doesn’t particular enjoy the role of a star. Glad-handing, networking, ladies’ lunches, glitzy parties are not for her although, like a pro, when called upon, she plays her part.
This gorgeous gal is impulsive and spontaneous. She has a restlessness about her that often leaves her feeling incomplete. It’s as though she is looking for a missing piece of the puzzle. The Tarot suggests she doesn’t ever like to get too comfortable, because she’s frightened of standing still. Our Witch Twitch says although she seeks she will never find.
Animal Totem - Deer
Our guides show Stockard is at one with the Native American Totem Deer. With this magical spirit animal as her guide, the actress is able to bring gentleness and grace to all aspects of her life, even in the most challenging moments.
Drawing inspiration from the deer’s qualities, Stockard can achieve ambitious goals and tackle difficult situation smoothly. The deer horns empower her; she can be strongly determined and gentle at the same time.
Those with the deer as animal totem are filled with wanderlust, constantly on the move, seeking new horizons.
However, leaping with this spirit animal, Stockard may often be wary of newcomers; it takes time for her to trust someone or feel safe in their company. Our Witch Twitch says Stockard is advised to take some time by herself in a quiet environment or in nature whenever she feels overwhelmed or at odds with the world.

Love & Relationships
The Tarot suggests the Tony Award-winning actress is in love with the idea of being in love. She’s a born romantic who believes in love at first sight. If she blinks and misses it doesn’t overly concern her because, our guides say, she’s of the belief there’s always another encounter around the corner.
The crystals show the four-time married actress has no shortage of admirers. Like Betty Rizzo, the character in the film Grease who brought her world-wide fame, she’s a man’s woman, enjoying the company of the opposite sex just as easily as she does the sisterhood.
Our guides suggest the actress is like honey, mysterious and alluring. She frequently attracts and sparks up new friendships. However, she is loyal to the one she loves. Her long-term relationship with cinematographer Daniel Gillham is strong.
The Tarot suggests this union has depth and soul. There is space to breathe within it, no limits; an endless boundary in which to explore and expand. Our Witch Twitch advises Stockard to shake things up a little now and then, a little sparkle and sass never grows tired.
It’s going to be an interesting period for Stockard over the next few months. A connection with a furry friend is going to have particular meaning for the Broadway star. We’re seeing a jewelled collar, with the letter “M”.
Our guides advise that after a meeting about a new project the actress writes down everything that is promised. She should refer to her notes when it comes to signing contracts because something will be missing.
The Tarot suggests a watch will be the sign that something has run its course. We’re seeing an Argentinian Tango. This could mean the start of a new passion or a well-starred trip. Our Witch Twitch says the actress needs to step out of her comfort zone and dance like no-one is watching.
Since getting his break on The X Factor, when Simon Cowell put him together with four other “failed” solo artists to form boy band One Direction, Harry Styles has become one of the world’s hottest properties.
The What Makes You Beautiful singer has amassed a £56million fortune, has been linked with a string of A-listers including Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner, has forged himself as a style icon and, while his band takes a one-year hiatus, has managed to launch a successful solo recording career, with the release of his debut album Sign Of The Times taking the number one spot both in the UK and in the US.
Friday (July 21) sees the rakish star make his accomplished screen debut in Christopher Nolan’s five-star action thriller Dunkirk opposite acting heavyweights Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy and Kenneth Branagh.
Is this the start of a new direction for the young buck? Our third eye predicts all…
Scratch The Surface
Despite being seen as a charmer and the life and soul of a party, our guides say Harry can be a little bit moody at times and maybe guilty of emotional outbursts.
He can also be prone to shyness, a little awkwardness, especially when he feels out of his depth. However, the tarot suggests he masks this by reverting to his comfort zone, by acting the clown. He knows this works for him, buys him time, until he regroups and finds his swagger again.
The tarot suggests the millionaire singer has a hunger for knowledge and is interested in everything and everyone. He loves meeting people from all walks of life, to learn about them and their culture. He dreams of casting the light of illumination; of being the true idealist.
The tarot suggests he secretly believes there is more to life than we can know or prove, and he would like to be the one who unravels the mysteries of the universe. Our Witch Twitch says there’s only one direction for Harry and it’s always pointing upwards.
Each of us has a special crystal guide whose vibrations work with us to navigate this earthly realm. Harry is in tune with Amethyst, the stunning purple stone that is famed for its power to stimulate and soothe the mind emotions.
The singer is advised to always carry or wear in jewellery form a piece of amethyst, especially when he is partying mode. The purple stone can prevent drunkenness and overindulgence and can ensure Harry always keeps his wits about him, whatever the situation.
By tapping into Amethyst vibration, Harry will also be able to find peace in noise. The stillness will lead him to make the right decisions. Our Witch Twitch says the colour purple will a prince make.

Love & Relationships
The tarot suggests that Master Styles is not adverse to a little danger. He likes living on the edge, playing with fire and often seeks the darker side of life in relationships. After all, a little fantasy role playing never did anyone any harm…
The 23-year-old singing will never be short of admirers but, our guides say, it will be some time before he settles down. He’s happy exploring and experimenting – he’s of the opinion, Why stick to Mars bars when you can sample the candy store. Our guides say there will be a few lovelies along the way who will tempt him to leave his hat a little longer.
These types will be fun and flirty, a little bit naughty, but just as importantly will have something to say. Harry likes a woman who has an opinion, who can introduce him to new thoughts and concepts which is why he’s just as likely to step out with an older filly than he is with a nubile Victoria’s Secret model.
Our Witch Twitch does however warn that although variety is the spice of life Harry needs to watch out his taste buds don’t get desensitised.
The tarot suggests music is going to run parallel with acting over the next few years for Harry. As he discovers his passion for drama, he will pursue as many opportunities as are presented.
He’ll be happy playing minor roles in order to hone his craft. However, our guides say he will not be long before producers and directors recognise his enthusiasm and talent and take a chance on him by casting him in meatier roles.
The tarot warns Harry has to guard against impatience. Good things are starred but if he becomes too demanding too exacting at a perceived lack of progress what is destined may be withheld. Our Witch Twitch says he’ll be one of those rare performers who can cross between music and film. Life is a cabaret.
With his trademark warrior-shaggy mane and proto-hipster facial hair –which he is contractually bound to keep intact - Kit Harington, aka Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow, is arguably one of the most recognizable actors on the planet. Earning a reported $1.1million per episode for his role in the phenomenally successful fantasy primetime show, he’s also fast becoming one of the richest.
The 30-year-old heartthrob is back on our screens on Monday (July 17) when the eagerly-awaited Season 7 of Game of Thrones will premiere on HBO. Sky Atlantic will simulcast the first episode at 2am (so it'll be July 18 to us), then show it again at 9pm.
We’re huge fans of George RR Martin’s fantasy epic TV adaptation and are rather partial to a little Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch so even though it may invoke the wrath of The Red Woman, we were delighted to spread our cards and scry the dark depths of the beautiful being that is Mr. Harington.

Scratch The Surface
Despite his dizzying fame and burgeoning bank account, Kit is extremely down to earth and not a bit flashy. The Tarot suggests he’s humble about his success and good fortune and would rather spend time with people he values like his closest pals and family than frequent glitzy Hollywood-style parties filled with wannabes, neverbes and hasbeens. He’s a theatre-trained thesp, darling, not a fame-hungry reality TV star! The tarot shows he’s quietly ambitious and, although, he may not always appear to want the spotlight, what lies beneath is a soul seeking to make a difference, to be remembered as a great. Our guides suggest Kit has a tendency to be a little too trusting at times and needs to work on this especially when it comes to endorsements and brand ambassador roles. Our Witch Twitch says the sharper the suit, the smarter the deal.
Our guides show that Kit flies with the Native American Totem Raven. It may not be the three-eyed kind like the one guiding his fictional GoT half-brother Bran Stark but nevertheless it brings with it a life filled with mystical adventures and spiritual surprises. An unknown actor, with barely any acting experience, being cast in a major HBO drama is an example of the magic surrounding the life of this chosen one. Raven totem is also the keeper of synchronicity. He is a master of bending and folding time and space so that Kit is exactly in the right moment at the right time. Kit is advised to take note when he sees this corvid on the lamp posts and buildings watching him. It’s a sign that things are falling into place. His guide may be there to help him on his journey, provide insight, knowledge and guidance. There is also an element of reflection with this bird. Raven reminds Kit that the people around him are mirroring back the things he most has to learn about himself.

Love & Relationships
The Tarot suggests that like his famous character Jon Snow he “knows nothing” when it comes to the relationships. Dating is not something the ### enjoys but rather finds mentally exhausting. The Tarot suggests he much prefers the idea of long-lasting friendships because in his mind these never get complicated. Our guides say the fact they do seems to escape him. The key to success with this beautiful boy is to keep it simple, and relaxed and to make him think you simply want to be friends. Be the best friend he’s looking for, the one he feels he can rely on, have fun with, joke around with and then never ever really leave – even if you break up in the process. The Tarot suggests this is how his relationship with former GOT co-star Rose Leslie blossomed and moved on to the next level: A friendship with added benefits. And boy does he love those benefits! The signs for this current relationship are good. However, our Witch Twitch warns Kit to reign in any feelings of insecurity and hide signs of jealousy even if he feels provoked. Remember, the Wildling chose you!
It’s going to be a giddy couple of years for Kit, both professionally and personally. Riding high on his GoT stardom, the young actor will have the pick of roles. The Tarot shows there will be many people in the industry trying to typecast him, however, the cards suggests Kit will not rush in to anything, preferring to envelop himself in the shadows, waiting for the right project to lead him into the light. He doesn’t need the money that’s for sure so he can take his time. Our guides suggest another small screen role may tickle his fancy – it may also take him down a more comedic route. He will need to convince the director that he can do funny – the crystals show he may do something quirky and unconventional to prove it – and if he pulls it off the performance will prove a winner. Our Witch Twitch advises Kit to avoid any hairdressers who go by the name of Delilah as keeping his locks long is the key to his super star power.
