And pleasant scents the noses."

News Updates for June 2024

A round-up of breaking news and the most interesting stories from the world of astrology and esotericism.

The French-Canadian paper, 'Journal de Montreal' reported that astrology enthusiast, Robert Gareau of Montreal won the option to take home $7 million or $1,000 a day for life, in the draw of 'Grande Vie', held on April 25.

Gareau writes astrology columns for newspapers and magazines. He said the signs of his victory were written in the sky, because as he put it, "The planets were aligned, Jupiter and Uranus."

The 69 year old Gareau wants to use part of the jackpot to buy a new bicycle, after his previous one was stolen a few years ago.

Marsilio and Crypto Damus are astrologers who predict the ups and downs of Bitcoin, based on planetary movements. They claim they are bullish on the crypto currency, at least for the next month or so. "The really most important thing, as I've said, is where we are going to end up in late May and early June. There's a lot of very favourable astrology there", forecasts Crypto Damus. That favourable astrology includes a Jupiter conjunction with Venus and Uranus. Historically, Jupiter transits coincide with Bitcoin cycle tops. "Astrology isn't always about predicting the future", he says. "It's looking at what's happening in the present, based on the past."

According to the Smithsonian, the legenadry musician, Bob Dylan created an untitled piece of artwork in the 1960s while recovering from a motorcycle accident in Woodstock, New York.

RR Auction, the auction house conducting the painting's sale said, "Dylan created the abstract painting for Sandy LePanto, another Woodstock-area resident. In exchange, she performed astrology readings." Anne Margaret Daniel, a literary scholar and historian who is writing a series of essays on Dylan, had this to say about the painting's recepient, "Sandy was not only one of the most beautiful women in Woodstock at a time when there were many; she was a mystic, a channeler, a reader of stars and maker of astrology charts for her friends."

The abstract painting is a collage of bold colours juxtaposed with recognisable forms, such as musical symbols, bull horns, bow ties and a pair of eyes. A red outline of a man with a brimmed hat, which some say could be a self-portrait and this sits at the top of the canvas. The auction house estimates the painting to sell for as much as $100,000.

In a remarkable prediction Vedic astrologer, Kushal Kumar predicts that there's a high chance World War III will commence on June 18, 2024.

He claims an astrology chart that he previously cast envisaged rising tensions between Israel and Hamas, North and South Korea, China and Taiwan and Russia and Ukraine.

Kumar is thus set to become either the most famous astrologer in history, or the most avoided.

Writer Emma Ginsberg claims that she has, "Always been on the skeptical side when it comes to astrology", but nevertheless, "Knew my big three". Given the earlier statement it is unclear how and why, but she said, "I stumbled upon Soulloop, an app that promised to make me feel more in tune with my own self-care routine by using astrology." After trying the routine for 30 days, Ginsberg claims, "I can honestly say that I feel more in tune with myself than I have in months."

With the release of the film, 'Tarot', psychic medium Samantha Jayne warns about the dangers of messing around with Tarot cards and meddling with the unknown. The American supernatural horror film explores what happens when a group of friends knowingly decide to break one of the rules of Tarot readings: never use someone else's deck.

"Tarot cards are not a game, just as a Ouija board is not a game, even though some toy manufacturers seem to think so. Playing around with energies you do not understand can go horribly wrong. While this film is a fiction, it does draw attention to the fact that some things are not well understood and are not suitable for game playing", Samantha said. Jayne had these words of warning, "The rules are simple. Don't touch someone else's cards without permission and make sure to set a clear intention before shuffling the cards. Tarot cards can absorb good and bad energies from the people they have given insight into. It is important to set your intentions as the cards will give you divine guidance as they connect with a situation." Jayne also added, "If you do not do this, you are not protecting yourself from negative energy or advice which could lead to some bad decisions."

The recently released movie, 'Tarot' has received generally poor reviews from critics and movie goers, alike. The movie catgorised as, 'Horror, Mystery and Thriller' has only mustered a satisfaction rating of 20% on review site, Rotten Tomatoes.

Pre-release news of the movie was covered in the March edition of Astrology News. Tarot's storyline surrounds a group of friends who mess around with a deck of Tarot cards. In the process, they unknowingly unleash an unspeakable evil trapped within the cursed cards. One by one, they come face to face with fate and end up in a race against death to escape the future foretold in their readings.

Witches use hexes to cast spells on mere mortals. Nikola Arkane used those same powers to manipulate a deck of Tarot cards for Penn and Teller on "Fool Us."

This piece in the 'Economic Times', India quotes a recent Redseer report titled, 'Astro-Tech: Navigating Cosmic Trends in the Digital Era'. The report quantifies the status and growth potential of the Indian online astrology market and says that the online astrology business is experiencing rapid growth in India and is projected to grow significantly.

The pandemic further accelerated this trend, leading to a surge in consultations and subscriptions. Future growth will reportedly be driven by tech advancements and changing consumer behaviour.

The spike in online astrology business may have slackened after the pandemic but it opened up a vast digital market for astrologers. Of India's estimated $350 billion faith and religious products market, the astrology segment is ripe for a tech-enabled growth, says the Redseer report.

The Hollywood actress, Christina Ricci is reported to have worked on the deck with husband Mark Hampton and a team of creatives and Tarot experts.

The 78 card Tarot deck is named the, 'Cat Full of Spiders Tarot Deck and Guidebook' and featuring a foreword by Ricci and custom artwork. It is reported that "Tarot lovers can experience the actress's personal and professional story through a wholly unique lens."

In a statement shared exclusively with PEOPLE Ricci said, "This Tarot deck is a passion project for me. It is filled with references to moments in my life and touches on the moments that come our way as we journey through the world."

A new podcast series, The 'Sky Vibe', hosted by iHeartRadio's Judi Diamond and professional astrologer and broadcaster, Thomas Miller has gone online.

Boston based band, 'Happy Little Clouds' is reported to draw inspiration for their songs from the whole Tarot deck, according to singer-guitarist, Jac Mestel.

Earlier this year, the rock band released, "The Emperor's Song", a tune about an established protagonist a little bit like the Emperor card. While on May 1, they released the fun, energetic, grunge-tinged single, "I Don't Suppose" which features cover art depicting another Tarot card, 'The Fool'. When you pull the Fool during a Tarot reading, the card signifies new beginnings and innocence, an adventure into the unknown.

The band's singer, Mestel is claimed to sound like a "90s Alanis Morrissette". He did not however say, "You oughta know" in response!
