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.
Perrie Edwards makes up one quarter of the hugely popular girl group Little Mix, with her bandmates Jessy Nelson, Jade Thirwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock. Formed in 2011 on The X-Factor, the feisty quartet is the only group to date to have won the ITV talent show.
South Shields-born Perrie is regarded as the best vocalist in the group, known for her Aguilera-esque tubes which belt out the hard-hitting and powerful vocals within the band’s harmonious pop tunes. Her love life has also made her the most prominent member of the group, having once been engaged to former One Direction star Zayn Malik and then unceremoniously dumped by him. She bit back with the song Shout Out To My Ex which won the group a Brit Award and cemented the girls’ popularity in the US.
Perrie and her Little Mix bandmates will light up Old Royal Naval College tomorrow night (July 7) when they perform in the Greenwich Music Times series of summer concerts.
We’re rather intrigued by the gorgeous singer so we cast the runes to find out more…
Scratch The Surface
Our guides say beneath Perrie’s fierce and fabulous veneer lies a little girl who, at times, can be quite timid. Even though she’s part of one of the world’s most popular and successful girl bands, the tarot shows she can lack confidence and finds casual conversations and social situations a little overwhelming, even awkward at times. It’s almost as though she feels she doesn’t belong in the glittering world of showbiz, that she’s a fake and she’s just waiting for a time when, like the naked emperor, someone calls her out on it. Our Witch Twitch says Perrie’s lucky she has her bandmates around because when she’s down, they provide the wind beneath her Wings.
What goes around, comes around is the mantra behind the Wheel of Fortune that is the guiding force in Perrie’s life. The 10th major arcana card reminds the pretty singer that for every positive there will be a negative and vice versa. To remain in balance, Perrie is encouraged to stay true to her core because only then can the cyclical lows be supplanted by highs. The Wheel of Fortune is about keeping optimistic and having faith in the Universe that it will take care of the situation in the best way possible. Perrie is reminded to think positively and keep as upbeat as possible no matter what she is faced with because only then can the wheel turn again in her favour. Our Witch Twitch advises Perrie to carry a piece of chalcedony to ensure self-doubts don’t thwart the natural twists and turns of fortune.
Love & Relationships
No-one signs up for getting their heart broken when they embark on a new love affair but the tarot shows Perrie has an irrational fear of this happening to her. So much so that it’s almost like a self-fulfilling prophesy, with the Black Magic hitmaker fixated and therefore manifesting the very thing she is so desperate to avoid. Our guides say it’s what triggered the whole Zayn split. For any relationship to flourish, the tarot suggests the singer needs to value herself and become more self-confident and self-assured. She is reminded that no-one has permission to take her power – unless, of course, she herself hands over that right to them. Our Witch Twitch says Perrie needs to remember she’s the star – and, despite what her current squeeze, Arsenal and England footballer Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, may believe, it is she who brings the street cred.
Over the coming months the crystals suggest 24-year-old Perrie needs to overhaul her diet and fitness routine otherwise she could start suffering with stress and anxiety. She is being urged to up her intake of protein, green foods and fruits and to find time in her hectic schedule to do some form of meditation, even if it’s 10-minutes of simply sitting still with her eyes shut. The tarot shows professionally Perrie and her bandmates will see their careers go from strength to strength, with more high profile collaborations catapulting them further into the major league. In particular, a song linked to an older female artist is going to be a winner. Bizarrely, golf may play an interesting role in Perrie’s future and could even be the path to a new romance. Our Witch Twitch says there’s a lot more to come from the young songstress, especially if she can find that fierce!
Sonu Nigam is one of the highest paid Indian singers in the world, his pure, unmistakable voice featuring on hundreds of Bollywood hits and, as a playback artist, lip-synced by some of the Indian movie world’s biggest actors.
The versatile performer started out at the age of four singing alongside his father and mother at weddings and parties, and has since gone on to achieve international success with a string of accolades and a global following. As well as collaborations with a host of Indian performers he has also worked with artists including Britney Spears and DJ Avicii, and has seen a number of his recordings top the US Billboard Uncharted.
If that wasn’t enough, he’s also a judge on reality show Indian Idol, the Indian version of Pop Idol, which is one of the most watched shows on Indian TV.
Forty-three-year-old Sonu brings his Klose To My Soul concert to The O2, Greenwich on Sunday (July 2), a Bollywood musical extravaganza featuring a 40-piece orchestra.
Excited to find out more about the popular Hindu singer, we cast the runes, and consulted with the crystals to see the man behind the artist.
Scratch The Surface
He may not flash the cash or be the king of bling but our guides say don’t be fooled by his understated veneer. Like a West Coast Rapper, Sonu is highly materialistic and also very desirous of status and power. The tarot shows he’s fiercely ambitious and ferociously bright, figuring out how to climb the greasy pole of success even when the ladder’s not available. However, often this can lead to the Playback singer taking on too many tasks, putting tremendous strain and demands on Sonu’s time – and, more worryingly, his health. Our Witch Twitch says Sonu needs to learn to slow down the pace a little, to trust that what’s for him won’t go by him and remember all you can take with you is the love of those around you.
Our guides show Sonu swims with the Native American totem Salmon. The Salmon’s aim is to overcome all obstacles that are put in its way and are determined to reach their chosen destination no matter what is thrown at them. Swimming with Salmon suggests Sonu is tough and focused, with an eye always firmly fixed on the prize. He has chosen a life filled with challenges (those who follow him on Twitter will be well aware of his controversial opinions!) knowing that within each test lies a positive experience and the opportunity for growth. Salmon power is electric, intuitive, and creative, making Sonu a real livewire. He is a natural motivator, generous and fun and, in the right environment, is stable, calm, sensuous and loving. However, our Witch Twitch says, watch this fish leap into hot water and you’ll find him an egotistical pain!
Friends & Relationships
The Tarot suggests Sonu is creative and impulsive, with an infectious youthful, fun-loving attitude. Like a magnet, he draws people easily into his orbit. Our guides say the problem is many of them are not always ideal companions, with far too many of them leeching off the good-natured star. This guy’s a sucker for flattery, and needs to be careful not to base decisions on the words of smooth-talkers. Our guides say the silken singer is highly sensual and is appreciative of beauty in all its forms. He can be mischievous where love is concerned but is always true. In a relationship, he needs to be the star of the show, to never feel like he’s being criticized and, most importantly, to be given a very long rein. After all, it’s not his fault he’s so charismatic that people, in particularly the ladies flock around him. His wife of 15-years Madhurima (pictured above) is the perfect mate, understanding how to handle her complex man. Our Witch Twitch says fantasies come and go while the tide turns to unearth a buried love.
Within the next 18-months the Kal Ho Naa Ho singer is going to be made an offer he can’t refuse. The Tarot shows it will come out of the blue and has the potential to take the star in a very different direction professionally and geographically. The problem is it may also take him away from his family which is something Sonu will have to think long and hard about before making the commitment. Our guides say if there is the option of including the family, factoring them in to any commercial decision, he should take it because, without the support of his wife and the joy of having his eight-year-old son Nevaan around, Sonu may find his spirit dies and, therefore, the project with it. Our Witch Twitch says precious moments do not come around again but opportunities do.
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.
Legendary singer Céline Dion is one of the best-selling female artists of all time, boasting more than 250 million album sales in a career spanning three decades. The 49-year-old has five Grammys, two Academy Awards and a bank vault that’s bulging with in excess of £500million.
Not bad for a little girl who grew up in a small town in Quebec, the youngest of 14 brothers and sisters, and whose first bed was a drawer because the family home was full to the brim with children!
It’s been a tough time of late for the star, losing both her husband and one of her brothers within two days of each other at the beginning of last year. But ever the professional, the show goes on for Céline. The megastar is currently on her Live 2017 Tour, which rocks up to The O2 in Greenwich on Tuesday and Wednesday (June 20 & 21) and then again on July 29 and 30.
Always fascinated by stars who rise from humble beginnings, we cast the runes and fanned out the Tarot to discover more about the Canadian chanteuse.
Born into a musically-gifted family it was never going to be long before the sweet songbird soared. At 12, she was picked up by manager René Angélil, who would later become her husband, who on hearing her demo tape broke down in tears overwhelmed by the purity of her voice. He was so convinced of her talent that he mortgaged his house to finance her first album. Nothing is ever by chance. Our guides say that first encounter between Céline and René was orchestrated in the heavens, a path created that would lead to magic being created on the earthly plain. A star was born. The tarot suggests Céline is fully aware of her role in this lifetime; she understand that she has a gift and that it needs to be shared. Hers is to bring light to lives. Our Witch Twitch says like Sirius A she will continue to reign supreme.
Our guides show Céline is guided by tarot card The Empress. A card of creativity and beauty, those who walk with The Empress represent all that is feminine. Under its guidance the multi-millionaire songstress is likely to show great compassion and may feel it is her role in life to nurture anyone who seeks to be in her orbit. The Empress is why Céline walks with such grace and elegance and why her legions of loyal fans see her as a modern-day goddess. She loves luxurious living and can at times be overly extravagant – something she is advised to keep a watchful eye on! The influence of this card suggests Céline is fearless, a woman who is comfortable taking chances and living life on the edge. Our Witch Twitch says greatness is measured by courage and heart – something La Dion has in bucketfuls.
The Tarot suggests Céline is a great gal to be around; full of energy, vitality and bursting with a contagious enthusiasm. She makes friends easily and, if you happen to be one of her inner circle, you should count yourself lucky because she’s loyal to the core and as generous with her time as she is with her money. Our guides say, despite her staggering number of professional achievements, motherhood is the role of which she is proudest. And since losing her husband René to throat cancer, her three sons, 16-year-old René-Charles and six-year-old twins Eddy and Nelson, have taken centre stage in her universe. The Tarot shows René was and will forever be the singer’s soulmate. Two lives entwined through time and space together on a journey that has no end. Our Witch Twitch says in this lifetime love can call again for the My Heart Will Go On singer but we’re not seeing the door be open to it anytime soon.
Over the next few years, our guides say Céline will be exceptionally busy, throwing herself with gusto into her work, creating new stage shows, albums and exploring business opportunities. However, the Tarot advises the star to be cautious with a couple of these ventures, especially in areas where she has little or no experience. The crystals suggest these projects may prove more beneficial to others than for the star. Céline is advised to watch out for someone whose eyes remain cold when they smile. Our guides say this person is not the real deal despite saying the right things and looking the part. Man (or woman) speak with fork tongue! The Tarot warns the Power of Love performer needs to keep a check on her health. She is advised to lay off coffee or similar caffeine-infused drinks and to get plenty of sleep. Our guides say leisurely baths should replace showers and placing a lavender bag under a pillow may help. Our Witch Twitch says the sound of rain will have meaning.
Tom Cruise is one of the most famous actors on the planet, having starred in more than 40 films in a career spanning three decades. As a producer, he’s one of a select handful who is able to guarantee the success of a billion-dollar film franchise, making him one of the most powerful men in Hollywood.
Despite this Midas touch, the 54-year-old remains sans Oscar, the much coveted little gold statue, that has alluded him even though he’s been nominated for one three times. We’re sensing the bare shelf has more to do with his outspoken views and affiliation to the Church of Scientology than with his acting credentials.
With Tom recently returning to the big screen in the eagerly-anticipated summer blockbuster The Mummy, we pulled out our dowsing pendulum and scried our crystal ball to find out what’s behind the megastar’s megawatt grin.
It wasn’t the easiest of starts for the Syracuse, New York, native. It’s well documented that he had an abusive father and that the family lived on the breadline for most of his early years so it’s little wonder the young Tom dreamed of a better life. Our guides say the seeds of his future career were sown as the family moved from place to place chasing work, with Tom attending 13 different schools in 14 years in the process. Always the new kid in the class, Tom had to learn to adapt, negotiate different personalities, and, ultimately, become a shapeshifter in order to fit in. The tarot shows this is where his craft was born. Acting is what he does – and who he is. The crystals show the Risky Business star is highly intuitive and creative as well as being empathetic and highly observant. He has a natural curiosity and a genuine concern for others. Qualities on which he draws when stepping into the shoes of a new character. Our guides say Tom has a feeling of wanderlust, a need to explore and travel. He is being reminded to take note of the process as much as the journey and exploration itself because this is what marks it as a divine adventure. Our Witch Twitch says there is a lot more for Tom to discover about himself and his place in the world before his life mission is up.
Our guides show Tom is guided by tarot card The Moon. This is a tricky and complex card because its very nature is deceptive. Under its direction the multi-millionaire star may often feel vulnerable or anxious, especially when faced with the darker side of his own nature. The Moon needs expression and will achieve this even if it masks what is real. This may see the Mission Impossible star often allowing self-deception and distortion of the truth lead him astray or away from his purpose. Under Moon’s guidance, Tom is urged to tap into his intuition rather than his imagination as all too often the latter creates havoc with his reality. Our Witch Twitch says the actor needs to beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing.
Love & Romance
Life would be a whole lot easier for Tom if he didn’t fall in love so hard, so fast. The Tarot shows the three-time divorced star is in love with the idea of being in love. He’ll fixate on the object of his desire, woo them as if they were a fairytale princess, showering them with lavish gifts and bombarding them with grand gestures of affection (who can forget that Oprah appearance!). The cards suggest he gets so caught up in the pursuit he doesn’t necessarily stop to think if it’s really what he wants. However, our guides say, as quickly as love – and the accompanying healthy dose of lust - arrives, it can exit, turning from candy floss sweet to a vat of Sarson’s vinegar, if Tom believes, right or wrongly, he has been slighted or criticised. After all damsels are meant to worship their knight in shining armour, not disagree with them. Love can scar this chap deeply. It may take him some time to jump back on the horse but, when he does, he’ll go off in search again with as much vim and vigour as he did the first gallop round. Our Witch Twitch advises when choosing a potential partner, the actor should use the same magic formula he does when picking a film role – and, remember, his most notable performances have come from his quirky often out-of-character choices!
Over the next few years the tarot shows the Magnolia actor making an increasing number of “smaller” films – ones that are not a franchise or gun-toting action blockbusters – in a bid to position himself as an Oscar contender. He really does want one of those statues for his shelf! The crystal ball suggests one project in particular will see the star working with an unconventional director or co-star and will show Tom in a whole new light – it may involve some cross-dressing moments a la Some Like It Hot. Our guides say Tom needs to be aware that someone in his inner circle is only thinking of themselves and is trying to prevent the star from moving forward. The advice is to trust in his own integrity for only then can real progression be made. And, although the Top Gun star has kept his relationship status under wraps since splitting with third wife actress Katie Holmes back in 2012, the Tarot suggests the star will soon present a new girlfriend to the world. And, our guides predict, within 18 months she could be the next Mrs Cruise. Our Witch Twitch says the star has some important life decisions to make in the upcoming year and as long as he listens to his own truth, follows his own path and not those shaped by others, he could see himself standing tall, a golden statuette in hand.
Frontman and lead vocalist for “boy band” Take That Gary Barlow is one of the UK’s most successful songwriters of all times, having written 14 number one singles and 24 top 10 hits. But his talents do not stop there. Not only does the multi-millionaire musician run his own record production company, write musicals, pen hits for other artists, and sometimes play at being a judge on talent shows like The X Factor and Let It Shine, but also the gifted Gary devotes a huge chunk of his time raising money for a number of different charities for which he received an OBE from the Queen.
In keeping with that benevolent side, on Friday, he and his fellow That That Band mates, Mark Owen and Howard Donald, announced that all proceeds from their Wonderland Live gig at the Liverpool Arena last Friday – which was originally scheduled to be performed that night at Manchester Arena - would be donated to the We Love Manchester emergency fund.
Take That bring their Wonderland Live tour to The O2 in Greenwich next week from June 6 to 12.
Back in the day, when we were a ra-ra skirt sporting Thatter, we were always in Gary’s camp, not Robbie’s, so it was with a giddy sense of excitement we shuffled the Tarot cards and consulted the Kau cim to look a bit closer at the saintly singer.
A Star Is Born
From an early age Cheshire’s favourite son was always destined to shine – even though it might not have seemed that way to the 15-year-old as he played weekly spots at local working men’s clubs.
Our guides say performing on the Northern Club Circuit was where and when the Forever Love singer honed his craft and, possible more importantly, learned the value of hard work. The Tarot suggests Gary is driven by a need to succeed. He is curious, interested in everything which is why he is never afraid to try new experiences. What’s the worst that could happen? Falling out of favour, dropping off showbiz radars, singles relegated to the basement bin… He’s experienced all that but, our guides say, it’s all part of the Greatest Day hit-maker’s learning curve. The crystals show it is important the star finds time to relax. He is advised to practice some form of daily meditation – even if it’s just 10 minutes sitting still and daydreaming – otherwise he could find himself quick to temper.
Our Witch Twitch says it’s okay to stop and pat yourself on the back every now and again.
Our guides show Gary is guided by the Major Arcana Tarot Card Judgment. Under its direction the likeable star has a canny knack of being able to liberate himself from old attitudes. When channeling Judgment, the singer-songwriter can easily shed old ways, embrace new paths. He can forgive and forget and accept things the way they are. By drawing on its energy, Gary can always find balance and peace. He can see that no good can come of blaming others or being hard on them or himself. This position keeps Gary light on his feet and arms him with the power to overcome any obstacle or difficulty he encounters. It’s what’s seen him navigate the peaks and troughs of fame, always with a successful outcome. Our Witch Twitch says like a fine wine Gary will simply get better with age.
You only live once so live it for yourself. That’s the mantra the tarot suggests the showman lives by. This makes for some interesting relationships. Our guides say if people play by Gary’s rules then all is well, if not then he’ll not hold it against them but he’ll waste no time in moving on. The crystals show he’s a seriously good judge of character. Maybe that’s why his inner circle is so tight. The tarot suggests he can spot a fake and a phony at 100 paces. Don’t try to pull the wool over this chap’s eyes because, like a wolf, he’ll eat you for breakfast. When it comes to love and romance, he’s thoughtful and caring, responsible and reliable. He may always need to have his space, feel like he has his freedom, but ultimately Mr. Barlow is a keeper as his wife of 17 years, Dawn (pictured above with her hubbie) can testify. Our Witch Twitch says one reaps what one sows and be careful that freedom doesn’t come at too much of a price.
The Tarot suggests a country that starts with the letter A - Australia or America perhaps - is going to play a big part in the 46-year-old star’s life in the next year or two. An opportunity there will arise that could see the father-of-three relocating with his family for quite some considerable time. Our guides say although it will be a great career move, opening up even more doors to the star, it could create a rift within the family. He is being advised to ensure those nearest and dearest are not forgotten in the process that there’s time for them too. A collaboration with an international artist is also in the stars, one which will see Gary truly rule the world. Despite the sands of time slipping by there really is no slowing down for the gentleman hit-maker. Our Witch Twitch says although Gary has his own individual destiny to fulfill he understands the key to greatness is to consciously contribute energy towards a group process of evolution.
