Ed Sheeran is arguably one of the most influential musicians on the planet. He boasts multi Brit and Grammy Awards, numerous accolades such as “the fastest-selling album by a male artist in history” and millions in record sales.
The A-Team singer really is part of the in-crowd, with a string of A-list celebrity pals including among others golden girl Taylor Swift, Elton John and Russell Crowe, and a host of artists queuing up to collaborate with him.
There appears to be no stopping the boy from Framlington. His star continues to be in the ascendant: His latest album ÷ ("divide") debuted at No 1 in both the UK and US and earlier this week he was honoured by the Queen for his services to music and charity (more about that later). Tonight (June 22) the world’s most famous redhead (okay that title may already be taken by Beaker from The Muppets) takes to the stage at The O2 as part of the Greenwich venue’s Tenth Birthday Shows, then he’s off to headline the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury on Sunday.
Having a penchant for strawberry blondes and a love of smoochy lyrics it was with gusto we whipped out our crystals and scried our Kau Cim to find out what drives the multi-millionaire singer.
Scratch The Surface
He may come across as laid-back and easy-going as a Bassett Hound, but our guides say don’t be fooled. Ed is as fierce and ferocious as a Rottweiler when it comes to the game of life. The tarot shows no one has more energy, drive, self-confidence and self-belief as the gifted singer-songwriter. He thinks not just big but super colossal. It’s this fierceness and unwavering belief in his own talent, that saw him rock up in Los Angeles when he was an unknown to try out his material at Open Mic nights across the city. The punt paid off: Jamie Foxx (pictured above) spotted him, handed him the keys to his personal recording studio, offered him a place to stay and, well, the rest, as they say, is history.
Our guides show Ed is guided by animal totem Wild Boar. A symbol of warriors for centuries, Wild Boar is one of the most fearless, aggressive and ferocious fighters of the Animal Kingdom and one of the most influential of all animal totems. The power Ed draws from this ancient totem imbues him with strength, leadership, courage and nobility (his MBE from the Queen this week is just the beginning). Trotting with Wild Boar suggests Ed likes to feel he is part of something, a group, a clan, but is often wary, distrustful even, of outsiders. He doesn’t appreciate anyone taking his limelight. Our Witch Twitch says he may look harmless with his rotund belly, little legs and coarse hair but, watch out, his tusks are lethal!
Friends & Relationships
The Tarot suggests Ed likes to surround himself with successful and talented people. He makes friends easily but he is only close and intimate with a handful of them. He’s a rather off-the-wall character making him great fun to be around, the person without whom there is no party. Our guides say he’s one of the good guys, a humanitarian at heart, ready to help others in a moment’s notice. As for love and romance, our guides say the way to this chap’s heart is to be playful (he enjoys a good pillow fight and bounce), attentive but not overly cloying. He values his freedom and the moment he feels trapped, it’ll be hasta la vista, baby. The tarot shows he likes to be in a partnership, but instead of two halves becoming one, he prefers the two halves to remain intact. He likes his gal to be smart, independent and confident which is why Cherry Seaborn, Ed’s girlfriend of two years, may just be Perfect for old Fire Crotch. Our Witch Twitch says a ring will spin on a significant date.
After you’ve been named by Debretts as one of the most influential people on the planet what else is left? Our guides say even Ed, who as we now know is not shy about his talents, is surprised at how stratospheric a rise his career has hit in such a relatively short time. The tarot shows there will be more awards, more record-breaking and firsts, more A-list collaborations – and heaps more cash to add to the coffers. For the foreseeable future there’s no stopping the 26-year-old. Due to his staggering success, our guides say, the Shape Of You singer will want to challenge himself further. They suggest he may make a crossover into film, starting with some unconventional roles in small independents before branching out into meatier roles. The tarot shows the next few years will see an entirely different side to Sheeran, with a number of different business ventures and family commitments to keep him occupied. He is, however, advised to not diversify too much and to stay true to his core. Our Witch Twitch says fate can be fickle so Ed needs to cherish things while they last.
Like Marmite, Grammy-Award winning singer-songwriter John Mayer seems to divide opinion. People either love him or loathe him. Find him brilliant or boring. After a lengthy time away recording in the studio, the sultry singer is back with his new album, The Search For Everything, and accompanying world tour that rocks up to The O2 tonight and tomorrow (May 11 and 12).
We’re not sure what we make of the Who You Love artiste but, as huge fans of Marmite, we thought it was worth a little spoonful of magic to find out more about the mysterious Mr Mayer. Our oracles did not disappoint…
Scratch The Surface
He’s had some controversial moments in his career, been known to be a tad loose-tongued when it comes to his bedroom antics and is considered by many to be an arrogant jerk but, the tarot suggests, the Connecticut-born singer is not all that bad. He’s done much of his growing up in the spotlight which, our guides say, has done wonders for his ego but not much for his emotional maturity. The cards show that like a fine wine he will improve with age which is why, with the Big 4-0 looming, he will begin to show a more mellow and considered face to the world. Our crystals suggest the penny has finally dropped for the star. Bedroom gymnastics will always be important to him but he will now find value in curling up with a good book, watching a movie and spending quiet time with that Forever Person by his side. Our Witch Twitch says the best is yet to come for him – and from him.
The Tower is John’s ruling tarot guide. This mystical major arcana card suggests that a change is always coming for the singer. There is no room for complacency. No sooner does John Boy get settled in a situation, then The Tower’s power rocks the foundations, throwing him up into the air to start again, often in a different direction. The Tower is there to test John, to make sure his roots are forever strong for only then can the artist reach his potential, find what he is truly looking for. Our Witch Twitch says he needs to take note: Anything or anyone that remains intact when these seismic shifts rip through his world should be treasured. These are his true Norths from which he will draw his strengths.
Love & Romance
A slew of failed romances with some serious high-profile chicks - Hollywood golden girl Jennifer Aniston and Princess of Pop Katy Perry (more about her later) to name a couple - is proof enough the path of true love does not run smoothly for the 39-year-old. Our guides say this may have something to do with him attracting the wrong type of gal. The tarot suggests the singer-songwriter has a tendency to attract high maintenance honies or emotional Eves (we’re not suggesting for one minute that either Jen or Katy fall into this category). A born romantic, he falls fast and heavy. However, what first begins as a supercharged – often highly sexual – drama-fueled relationship soon fizzles out when the drama in question becomes more EastEnders and less Versailles. Our Witch Twitch says John knows who he loves – he’s telling the world, too, with Still Feel Like Your Man - but whether or not his desire, the Princess, wants to climb back on the white charger again is being discussed at the heavenly high table even as we speak.
Words to the Wise
Our guides say the Your Body Is A Wonderland singer is facing a conundrum. He’s rediscovered a passion for making music, he loves the sounds he’s producing. Creatively, he’s the happiest he’s been in years, but… Emotionally, he’s yearning for someone with whom to share his life. The crystals show he’s troubled, questioning that maybe he can only have one without the other. Our guides warn if love remains elusive or if his Master Plan to woo back his Princess fails, the star’s mood may take a rapid nosedive. A change in diet will help lift it back again. He needs to learn that timing is everything. A missed opportunity may in fact be a blessing in disguise. And what we spend time focusing on may be the very thing we need to ignore. Our Witch Twitch says John needs to embrace the shadows as herein hide the gifts.
He made his name playing a chubby lovable dimwitted slacker in American political TV comedy Parks And Recreation before landing the part of a ripped star-crossing badass in the movie Guardians Of The Galaxy which catapulted his career into the stellar sphere. Chris Pratt is the Hollywood man of the moment, the wise-cracking actor who has made the leap from small screen to the silver effortlessly, with directors queuing up to work with him and multi-film contracts worth millions.
The heavy-hitter is back with the second instalment of Marvel Studios’ Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 in which he plays the role of Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, a half-human-half-alien leader of the Guardians.
Our Witch Twitch is always intrigued by the rise of supporting players into major players so we set to work casting the runes to discover more about the irresistible Mr Pratt.
Scratch The Surface
Family is at the heart of what drives forward The Jurassic World star. He wants to be able to provide for those nearest and dearest, give them the best of everything.
Our guides warn, in his quest for financial security, he may take on too many projects which could result in his Tigger-like enthusiasm and energy being replaced by Eeyore moments.
Carrying a small tumbled piece of agate could help protect this from happening.
The Tarot shows that money is very important to the charming star and could, at times, see him becoming a little miserly over its use.
That being said it’s only because he wants to safeguard the future, protect against a time when the film and TV roles aren’t there.
Our Witch Twitch says listen up, Chris, the cards show that ain’t going to happen any time soon. The Universe is permitting you to splash the cash. Go splurge.
The Four Of Wands has made an appearance in the tarot layout for the 37-year-old. This joyous card is a blessing and heralds a time for celebration.
It suggests the super sharp star is now at a point where he feels proud of his accomplishments and can accept that he has “made it”.
The Four Of Wands promises an exciting time ahead where parties and get-togethers are well favoured.
This merry-making minor arcana card also indicates that it is now time for Chris to break free from circumstances that no longer suit and be open to new possibilities.
Our Witch Twitch says cut the shackles from self-imposed bonds such as body image because the past is well and truly behind you.
On a romantic note, the Tarot reveals the star to be a one-woman man, with his wife, comedy actress Anna Faris, being The One.
Our guides say Chris functions best in a partnership and when coupled with the right person, Chris can achieve anything he chooses to pursue.
Since his marriage to The House Bunny star, he’s transformed from an overweight part player to a Hollywood hunk. Oh, and he’s a dad to four-year-old cutie Jack Daniels, too. It just goes to show what the power of love and persuasion can do.
The Tarot shows that Chris feels he struck gold when he met Faris and, in the words of UB40, believes she “saw then what they see now”. Our Witch Twitch predicts there could be some tricky times ahead for the golden couple, especially where leading ladies are concerned. However, the cards show, despite the relationship being tested, it can survive the temptations of time.
Our guides say, with the Guardians Of The Galaxy and Jurassic Park franchises in his armoury Chris is now considered a major Hollywood hitter.
The silver screen is his playground and, as such, he can have his pick of the peachy roles and the mega bucks that come with them.
The Tarot shows him being likened to the new Harrison Ford, with some great projects on the horizon.
However, the crystals suggest at times he will find the work/life balance difficult to manage. He’ll struggle at being away from his wife and son, frightened that he’s missing out on their lives.
He’ll battle against always having to be “on” and working hard at keeping super ripped. Muscled-up and buff Chris will yearn for a return to Mr Chubster.
The Tarot suggests he may even be tempted to pick a few movie roles which require him to pile on the pounds simply to let go and be able to indulge in his wife’s cooking.
Our Witch Twitch says this is your time, use it wisely – but don’t ever feel bad about chowing down and not using a spit bucket.
Britain’s Got Talent is back on our screens, with sassy Alesha Dixon once again taking her seat on the judging panel alongside Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Amanda Holden.
The down-to-earth celebrity is known for her trademark cackle and sizzling smile but what lies within? How did this little-known R’n’B girl group singer transform herself into one of the nation’s favourite TV golden girls?
Our Witch Twitch got to work with our crystals to find out.
Despite not being the most talented or often qualified individual in a room this Jill Of All Trades has a knack of being in the right place at the right time.
The Tarot suggests Alesha is not afraid to try something new. Opportunities knock and, even though they may take her out of her comfort zone, the vivacious BGT judge is happy to give them a bash.
Our guides say she has been gifted a “what’s-the-worst-that-can-happen?” attitude which is why success will always find her.
The Tarot shows that whatever route The Boy Does Nothing singer travels it may not lead her to the intended destination but will always result in a prosperous outcome.
Our Witch Twitch says keep the pedal to the metal.
Native American Totem
Alesha, 38, is under the guidance of Native American Totem Raven. Flying with Raven gifts Alesha with a positive outlook on life.
Her optimistic nature is highly contagious and draws people, especially power players, to her orbit.
Raven is a social spirit and prefers to fly with the flock than going solo which is why Alesha continually seeks out groups in which to work and socialise.
She’s just not that good or happy when she’s doing anything on her own and can often result in a downward shift in mood. Raven is idealistic and curious, which can often lead to trouble.
Our Witch Twitch says, as with Raven, Alesha should beware of shiny things – especially in the form of new encounters – as they are not always what they seem.
The infectious Alesha with her fellow BGT judges-cum-pals, David Walliams, Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden
Friends & Relationships
The Tarot shows Alesha is always on the lookout to expand her circle of friends.
She’s a mover and shaker happiest when she’s in a room full of people that she has brought together, circling from one to another, chit-chatting about everything from how to make the perfect slaw to the benefits of Spanx.
Our guides say she’s a fun gal to be around. On the romantic front, the Tarot suggests despite being in a six-year relationship with partner Azuka Ononye, with whom she shares three-year-old daughter Azura, Alesha is in no hurry to settle down.
Our guides say she still feels there may be someone else out there for her and, although content, always keeps an eye open to the possibility of being swept off her feet by an international man of mystery.
The crystals show an encounter with someone connected to a new professional project could seriously test her long-term relationship.
Our Witch Twitch warns the grass is not always greener but we sense that will not stop the celebrity from wanting to run barefoot through it. Our advice: Watch out for tics.
Alesha is the Princess of re-invention
Our guides say Alesha is the mother of re-invention. R’n’B girl band member, solo artist, model, Strictly glitterball winner turned panellist, yummy mummy, BGT judge, children’s author.
What you see is what you get until the next opportunity to try something new presents itself. Yet, our guides say, her strength lies in remaining true to her essence. The crystals show this may be challenged in her next venture.
Our guides say Alesha will need to dig deep and remain optimistic in a new, alien environment.
The Tarot shows she may be tested by a powerful industry player, very likely to be a woman, who holds the key to a fabulous new career move.
If Alesha can hold her nerve, remember her roots – maybe even rub a few crystals – she could find herself given a Golden Buzzer fastpass to a pinch-yourself Cinderella Fairytale experience.
Our Witch Twitch advises Alesha when you get the invitation to this glitter ball glide don’t sashay.
Britain’s Got Talent is on Saturdays on ITV from 8pm.
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.
Abel Tesfaye better known as The Weeknd, is one of the hottest R&B artists on the planet, with A-listers like Beyoncé and Bono queuing up to collaborate with him. Notoriously shy, he’s only recently stepped into the limelight as a result of his high-profile girlfriends (more about those later). The award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter brings his Starboy: Legend of the Fall World Tour to The O2 this week (March 7 and 8). Intrigued by the man of mystery, we happily cast his runes to find out what’s behind the façade.
Despite giving the impression he is shy, the Starboy hitmaker can be a real charmer using both words (you’ve heard his songs) and gestures (he likes to give gifts of dogs) to win over the ladies. The cards show the bedroom is an extension of his personality, where he enjoys the pursuit of excellence and can be surprisingly versatile and creative. Our guides say it’s no coincidence one of his tracks features on Fifty Shades of Grey!
The cards indicate that love comes fast but can leave even faster – just ask the beautiful Bella Hadid. Within weeks of breaking up with the teen supermodel whom he’d been dating for almost two years, the Grammy Award-winning artist was smooching with new squeeze Kill Em With Kindness songstress Selena Gomez.
To win Abel’s heart the cards show one needs to be more than just a pretty face. Our Abel likes his women to be interesting, with something to say, and often something to hide. Being able to deal with this chap’s foibles and eccentricities is also very much required if any relationship is to go the distance. Is SelAbel in for the long haul? Our Witch Twitch isn’t convinced, with the runes indicating in the long term Miss Gomez may be a little too clingy for the free-spirited Mr Tesfaye.
Scratch The Surface
Rarely giving interviews, preferring to let his music do the talking, there’s an air of mystery about The Weeknd. But, the cards suggest that’s exactly how he’s cultivated it. Our guides say he’s of the opinion less is more until the right time to reveal all. Abel is a true visionary who has the ability to grasp and action far-reaching concepts. A creative free thinker, the 27-year-old doesn’t allow others to manipulate or guide him. This boy has known where he was going – and how he was going to get there – from the moment he heard Michael Jackson’s Dirty Diana. Our Witch Twitch says there’s no more hiding now, though; the myth is about to become a legend - which is exactly in the Toronto Grand Master’s plan. Drake who?
The dizzying alternative R&B talent is under the influence of The Magician who as a guide creates the power to manifest dreams. Under this influence, the Ethiopian born has been transformed from a high school drop-out into a global star. The Magician helps those he mentors to enjoy all of the abundance life has to offer by empowering them with the ability to focus on their goals. He bestows them with charm, too, lots of it so that Abel will always get what he wants without it being too much of a challenge. However, our Witch Twitch warns the artist to not abuse these gifts as the shadow side of the Magician can lead to the misuse of power and the manipulation of those closest. Use your power wisely, young Padawan.
The Future Looks Bright
Already being compared to his inspirations Michael Jackson and Prince the high flying vocalist is in the ascendant. His music is no longer on the sidelines, crossing smoothly into the mainstream. The cards show he’s very much a brand now, with his own label, pop hits and even a designer clothing line for H&M (pictured above). It’s only the beginning. There’s a lot more to come, with collaborations across a number of eclectic platforms, with a diverse range of artists and performers.
However, there’s another much deeper layer to The Hills singer. Our guides say Abel has a social conscience, too. He’s a humanitarian, philanthropic and interested in making a difference. The cards suggest he knows he has a life purpose and it’s all part of the “deal”. The future shows him championing many causes and using his celebrity status to make a real impact. Our Witch Twitch says continue to believe, and the world will be a better place. The Weeknd starts here!
Widely considered to be one of the greatest boxers of all time, undefeated as a professional and a champion in five different weight classes, Floyd Mayweather Jr is a sporting legend. Now retired and heading the lucrative Mayweather Promotions, the 40-year-old lives the life of a playboy, with $695million in the bank, a fleet of fast cars, a private jet to fly him to exotic locales and the ubiquitous string of model girlfriends to keep him warm at night.
The superstar rolls into indigo at The O2 on Monday (March 6) with his Floyd Mayweather Undefeated Tour, an evening spent sharing insight into the boxer’s career. We thought we’d take our own unique look by casting the ringmeister’s runes…
Pretty Boy was always destined to fight. Dealt a tough hand of cards as a little one – his mother was a heroin addict, his father a drug dealer - our guides say Floyd understood very early on that he would have to literally fight his way out of his circumstances. Growing up, he could have chosen to walk the same path as many of those around him but once those gloves were on as a seven-year-old kid, there was no stopping him. Arguably the best defensive boxer the sport has ever known and the most accurate puncher, Floyd discovered his calling.
The cards reveal there’s a lot more to come from the champ but there are no more seconds out. Our Witch Twitch says the father-of-four deserves his rewards but needs to remember he is a role model and should use his celebrity platform wisely.
Scratch The Surface
Under the tough exterior, the pugilist prodigy has a heart of gold and will do anything to help those in need. The cards show he loves nothing better than to lavish gifts on those around him. He’s fuelled by his past. Life hasn’t always been easy for this kid so our guides say he’s going to make sure that those he loves will never endure such hardship.
Despite the hype and swagger, the tarot reveals Floyd often puts others first, neglecting his own needs and wellbeing. This can cause him to become mentally fatigued which very often results in poor decision making. Our Witch Twitch says the showman doesn’t always need to play the Big I Am and should look more closely at those who are givers, not takers.
Friends and Relationships
The outspoken superstar makes friends easily, from all backgrounds, including the likes of A-listers Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé and Jay Z. The Tarot shows that people gravitate to his orbit, drawn to it because of his warmth, infectious enthusiasm and lust for life – plus, of course, the trappings that come with hanging out with one of the world’s highest paid sportsman. “Money” as he’s known to his crew picks up the cheques, thinks nothing of jetting his pals around the world and likes to gift a few presents like, say, a $350,000 Hublot Laferrari.
There’s plenty of women, too. But, our guides say, this is where things for the five-weight world champion go a little awry. It’s all a bit hit and miss. He tends to express his emotions strongly at times resulting in a rather troubling history of domestic violence. The cards show this is a man who falls in love easily but its passions burn out quickly. Our Witch Twitch says Floyd needs to eschew surface types and seek what lies within. A relationship with a more mature, career woman is how and when Floyd will find the peace and true happiness he seeks.
The tarot shows the Las Vegas super fly guy fears being in a rut which may lead to him making rash decisions. He’s worked hard to be the best and doesn’t want to be forgotten or left behind. The runes show he would be well advised to channel his talents into a different arena, a career in politics or publishing is well starred.
Our Witch Twitch forsees a need to watch those around him because not all of them are the real deal or want what’s best for the undefeated champion. Floyd needs to safeguard his legacy, remember who he is and what he’s achieved. He's destined to come out of retirement. Could it be against Conor McGregor (pictured above)? It is in the glove-covered hands of the boxing god.

Honey G is one of the most controversial contestants that has appeared on ITV’s X Factor. Her rapping skills and “ghetto” persona divided a nation, with some labelling her fake, others, including Snoop Dogg and 50 Cents, calling her genius.
If you thought – or hoped - you’d seen the last of her you’d be wrong as the rapmeister is back bringing it large to the X Factor Live tour at The O2 on Saturday (February 25). Our Witch Twitch loves a conundrum so we were happy to cast the runes, to find out what’s really going on behind Honey G’s shades.
There must be something in the water at Dr Challoner’s High School in Little Chaffont, Buckinghamshire, for not only did it produce the supreme ambitionist Amal Clooney nee Alamuddin but also Anna Gilford aka Honey G. Anything you can do… Surprisingly, despite one being married to an Hollywood A-lister and the other, well, not, these middle-class ladies share more in common than one would think. The cards suggest a sense of destiny and an innate ability to put themselves in the right place at the right time. However, our guides say that regardless what the media would infer Honey G is the more genuine of the two. You make your own luck in this world and this is where the The Honey G Show singer has excelled. She wasn’t born to greatness, hasn’t married into it but is desperately trying to carve a way to it. Our Witch Twitch simply says go girl.
Scratch The Surface
Okay, so it’s pretty obvious that what you see is not what you get with the North Weezy resident who in a former incarnation was the boss of recruitment firm ARG Search Ltd and listed achievements as tennis champion, avid netball player and a flag bearer at the North American Maccabi Games in 1996. Far from the flamboyant, extrovert “gangsta” rapper that she portrays on stage, our guides say Honey G is one rather insecure individual, trying to prove to everyone that she is “flex”. The tarot shows she is living in the shadow of somebody and feels the only way she can break out is by going to extreme lengths. Hence the birth of Honey G. Our Witch Twitch says it’s all very good creating a persona a la Lady Gaga but to be convincing one needs to truly feel it from the heart and asks: Honey, is you really the realist chick in the game?
Native American Totem
Despite being likened to a bee our Honey G is being guided by the Native American totem Hawk. Who would have thought it? Flying with hawk means that you are only as powerful as your capacity in rap stylee to perceive and receive. Nothing escapes the attention of Honey G, she doesn’t miss a trick – or an opportunity. Hawk, though, is saying that the wannabe hip hop star needs to circle over her life, examine it from a higher perspective and ask herself whether this is the path she wishes to truly follow. Our Witch Twitch says fame does not always lead to fortune.
The tarot shows that Honey G dreams of artistic expression through music. Note, the cards say dream! It also reveals that the recruitment management-turned-rebel-rapper hankers after a conventional family life, with 2.2 children and a goldfish. Although she has a real likeability factor, ahem, not necessarily the X factor, the cards show Honey G dreams of being more popular and appreciated. Our Witch Twitch says Honey, you’re wonderful as you are. Stop hiding behind the shades, and the Smiffy shellsuit, and be true. You’ll find a lot more doors now opening for you but focus on behind the scenes not centre stage.

Emma Willis has crafted a career from fronting shows that feature wannabes like the hopeful on The Voice UK and the fame hungry on Big Brother. Her natural and relaxed presenting style has seen her being likened to the female equivalent of the uber slick X Factor host Dermot O’Leary.
On Wednesday (February 22), Emma will join her “twin” Dermot to co-host the Brit Awards at The O2 after Michael Bublé was forced to pull out. It’s a huge gig for the mum-of-three, one, if all goes well, will give her profile a stellar boost. Our Witch Twitch cast the runes to see how she will fare…
Scratch The Surface
The cards present an image of a hugely ambitious and goal-oriented individual kind of like a mini-me Davina but infinitely less irritating. She has the energy and self-belief to break down walls which has seen her metamorphose from an undistinguished teen model to the golden go-to-choice for TV presenting gigs. Don’t be fooled by her down-to-earth and relaxed persona. Our guides say the 40-year-old is fiercely competitive with a love of cash that could rival that of Kris Jenner’s. Couple this with her desire for status and power and you can see La Willis is no ordinary broad. But let’s not judge. The cards show this drive and ambition is in part fueled by a real desire to provide for her loved ones, to be able to give them the best of everything. However, our Witch Twitch warns the Gillette Venus razor ambassador (kerching!) needs to relax more where money is concerned and to enjoy what she has achieved in the here and now. Business should never get in the way of pleasure.
Love and Romance
The cards suggest the angelic faced Emma may come across as a lady in the street but she’s a freak in the… well, we’ll leave you to fill in the blank. She’s both cute and sexy – and she knows it. Our guides say this is one lady who likes to get physical. Hey, it helps keep that killer bod in shape. When this chick loves, she does it for life. Our guides say as Tammy put it: Stand By Your Man, And that’s exactly what she’s done with husband Busted band member Matt Willis (pictured below) and his well-documented battles with addiction. They share three beautiful children together and are celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary shortly so the Celebrity Big Brother host can rightly stand back and say to all those doubters: “I told you so”. However, our Witch Twitch says it’s not all a bed of roses. There may be some more trouble ahead, with an individual coming into Emma’s sphere, making it perfectly known that she is what he desires.
Native American Totem
The cards show that Emma is under the influence of the Native American Totem Wolf. She is a pathfinder who returns to the clan to share her knowledge and experiences. As someone who runs with wolves this little braveheart is fiercely loyal and protective to those she loves. The cards suggest she is happy to play her role within the clan, however, she does believe in extended family values when it comes to childcare. She loves her bambinos but she’s no stay-at-home mum. It takes a village to raise a child. Our Witch Twitch says the presenter would be advised to take herself off to an “alone” place from time to time. It’s where she will always find the answers to that which she seeks.
There is nothing the TV presenter cannot achieve especially as her tarot guide is the King of Pentacles. His presence in her orbit means she has “the Midas touch”. Like a magnet, she can attract anything to her, however, this can be both good and bad so, our guides say, she needs to be super careful for what she wishes. The King of Pentacles represents an enterprising and reliable personality. He shows the lucky few he chooses how to play the game of life and then reap its rewards. In the earthly realm he would be played by either Simon Cowell or Simon Fuller both of whom, the tarot shows, could work magic on Emma’s career. Our Witch Twitch says Emma needs to make the most of the King of Pentacles patronage for with it she can go for gold – and get it!
