Listed by Forbes as one of the most influential male recording artists in the world, with more than 100million in sales worldwide and four Grammys, Bruno Mars is a global superstar.
So it’s hardly surprising the Locked Out Of Heaven singer’s 24K Magic World Tour, currently rocking out at The O2 , is sold out. We’re huge fans of the talented Hawaiian-born performer and songwriter, having watched him dance to his own beat over the years.
So it was with a funky side step that we cast his runes and looked into the crystal ball to see what’s behind the megawatt smile, uber-cool style (there are not many who can rock a pink suit) and consummate showmanship.…

Peter Gene Hernandez aka Bruno Mars was always destined to perform. Having a professional musician as a father and a mother who could both sing and dance, it was in his genes to entertain. At four he took to the stage, performing as his idol Elvis, and basked in the attention and applause.
Our guides say from that point on there was only one career for Bruno. It’s no coincidence that the Uptown Funk star is one of the best-selling artists of all time, attaining his first five Billboard No.1s faster than any male artist since, yes, you’ve guessed The King himself, Mr Presley.
The cards reveal the spotlight is his comfort zone, it’s where he’s happiest and feels most alive. Our Witch Twitch says a perfectionist and workaholic by nature, Bruno needs to cut himself a little slack now and then otherwise he is in danger of burning out.

Friends & Relationships
A rarity in the entertainment world Bruno is both a considerate and compassionate person who, the crystals show, always finds the time to help people who frequently come to him for comfort and support.
The cards suggest Bruno enjoys being in the hustle and bustle of a crowd but equally likes to spend time alone with his nearest and dearest. Despite the trappings of superstardom, Bruno is down-to-earth and knows what truly matters in life: Friends and Family.
Our guides say Bruno is serious when it comes to love and romance which is highlighted by his relationship with model and swimwear designer Jessica Caban, with whom he has been dating for six years. When this guy loves, he does it big, bold and long-lasting.
The tarot shows that unlike many of his contemporaries this boy doesn’t feel the need to chase skirts, confident both in his self and appeal, knowing that if he wanted to, he could. Our Witch Twitch says Bruno needs to tap into his intuition more and go with his gut feeling when it comes to opening up to new people. There’s likely to be some big news later on in the year connected to his relationship, too!

Thirty-one-year-old Bruno is under the guidance of Native American Totem Turtle. This magical totem teaches those it mentors about walking one’s own path in peace and sticking to it with determination and sincerity. Turtle carries his home on his back which helps Bruno to feel at ease wherever he is and in whichever company he keeps. The ancient animal spirit travels at its own pace, on land slowly, in water fast and agile. Turtle reminds Bruno that regular breaks from his busy life need to be scheduled to ensure long-lasting health and vitality. Our Witch Twitch says cutting out the cigarettes and cigars would also help!
The tarot shows the award-winning artist needs to find some mechanism to cope with stress. It is his Achilles heel and, if not managed correctly, will lead to long-term problems. Our guides say over-eating and indulging in the wrong things is not the answer as this will see the performer struggling with digestive problems as well as sleep issues. The crystals show the performer needs to look into meditation and natural remedies as a way to combat stress and to achieve the balance that so often is out of kilter.
It’s in the stars that Bruno is to be dad – and that could come quicker than he plans. Despite coming as a surprise, he’ll take to the role with aplomb and will be happy to add a couple more to the Mars orbit in quick succession. The cards show the new responsibility will add another dimension to the star and will see him increasingly adopting a more relaxed approach to life. Our Witch Twitch says it will be a gift from the heavens to go some way to replacing a missing piece in his heart.
Think movie big hitters and Scarlett Johansson probably wouldn’t feature in most people’s Top 10. But the Avengers Assembly actress is one of the highest paid stars in Hollywood, thanks in part to her role as Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe series and her brand ambassador deals with Dolce and Gabbana and SodaStream, with a reported £64.4million already tucked away in the bank.
With her new film Ghost In the Shell , in which she plays a cyborg policewoman, hitting the big screens on March 31 and her relationship status making recent headlines, our Witch Twitch was intrigued enough to ask the oracles more about the mysterious Manhattanite.
Scratch The Surface
This is one deep individual who the cards reveal has multiple layers, each masking a different characteristic and personality type. She is all things to all people; a chameleon, a shapeshifter, a muse. It’s what makes her so magnetic and why so many directors from auteurs like Woody Allen, Robert Redford and Sophia Coppola to blockbuster heavyweights like Jon Favreau and Joss Whedon choose to work with her.
Alfred Hitchcock's favourite ice cool blonde Tippi Hedren
Don’t be seduced by her ethereal beauty, though. Our guides say the 32-year-old is no push over. She likes to make her own rules. If you play your part as directed by her then all is well but if you start to go off script, the cracks will begin to show. That carefully crafted cool veneer, the cards suggest modelled so artfully on Hitchcock’s famous “blondes”, will start to turn a little ugly and may reveal a more demanding, overbearing and egotistical side. But, our guides say, she will be quick to check herself. Her distinct husky voice will drop to a breathy whisper forcing those around to lock their eyes back on that sensual pout – and, like a Jedi mind trick, all will be instantly forgotten. Our Witch Twitch says the little Horse Whisperer is well aware she has the face of an angel and a body made for sin and is not afraid to use it.
The cards suggest that ScarJo loves the idea of being in love. She falls fast and heavy always believing that the partner du jour is “The One”. She conjures up an image of the perfect love affair and casts herself as the fluttering-heart romantic. Our guides say what she seeks, she always finds – but it won’t be long until her boredom threshold is tipped. Her relationship history suggests a couple of years max. As soon as life becomes a little too conventional, a little to rote, the Lost In Translation star will simply call it quits and move on to the next Barbara Cartland tableau.
Watch out Miss Head. Billionaire Tesla founder Elon Musk may be just the right guy for Scarlett
Like a moth to a flame there are no shortages of admirers. Her childlike enthusiasm for life coupled with a wild nature prove irresistible to most but, our guides say, it will take a highly evolved and unconventional type to survive the star’s Two-Year Itch. Husband Number One Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds couldn’t cut it. Hubbie number two journalist Roman Dauriac, with whom the actress shares a two-year-old daughter, Rose, has been served divorce papers. This is not what happens in fairytales. Our Witch Twitch says Scarlett needs a sexy and adventurous entrepreneur or mad scientist type in her life – we’re scrying recently divorced Tesla founder Elon Musk - who can keep her on her toes, stretch her mind and, quite literally, take her to the moon and back. Millionaire Matchmaker get cracking.
Scarlett is under the guidance of The Fool. Unorthodox, experimental, eccentric just some of the traits that those who walk with this Tarot master share. A free-spirit who seeks and needs adventure, The Fool will act without thinking, is unafraid of the unknown and is ready to leap into the deep end. The Fool suggests that Scarlett can be prone to infatuation (her short-lived relationship with Sean Penn back in 2011 a classic example) and often blind to the truth, preferring her own version of a situation, her own alternative facts. The Fool drives Scarlett to be spontaneous and carefree, which does not always make for a positive end result. However, the Tony Award winner will always dust herself off, bounce back and impulsively set off on the next quest. Our Witch Twitch says that Scarlett needs to be a little mindful at times and remember that only Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.
Our guides say the Hollywood star is going to have some tough times ahead of her, especially with the looming custody battle with her French ex over daughter Rose. The cards suggest it’s going to be challenging, with back and forth trips across the Atlantic, which may have an impact on her physical and mental wellbeing. She is being urged to watch her diet and look into taking Mulungu Bark in a warm brew daily. Further into the future, the cards suggest the actress will step behind the camera and direct a small independent movie, maybe with a black comedy edge, penned by a friend. Our Witch Twitch says whatever ScarJo chooses to take on in her life will always be a success – even if to the outside world it appears to be a failure.
