Tarot on the cards

The year ahead is here this week in a short capsule– it is brief and only points out to the most important aspects of the year 2023 in general. From the deck of Wisdom From The Epics of Hind by Pankhuri Agarwal. There is guidance on what to do and think about. These are just pointers, but there is always the matter of being able to think right. Think positive and behave as if you are already living the life you want. If there is an unconscious fearful attitude, then that is what you will end up creating. Watch those thoughts, and remember to think only of the best-case scenarios and best outcomes for everything.
