Sarah Perl has created a $1 million business on TikTok, teaching an online course called "Manifest Magic", where she teaches the self-help art of 'Manifesting money'.

Perl has more than 2 million subscribers to her TikTok account, @hothighpriestess. She encourages others to join her by saying, "Someone with half the talent as you is making ten times what you're making right now just because they believe in themselves".

Dan Levy, famous for his role as David Rose, in the TV comedy, Schitt's Creek, received a tarot card reading from friend and tarot reader, Trevor Ballin. Ballin, predicted an upward trajectory in Levy's future, with a strong emphasis on love. The tarot cards hinted at significant success for Levy, possibly including a special romantic encounter this year.

Writer, Gwendolyn Kiste has put together a list that matches various tarot cards with horror films. The list reads:

  1. The Star tarot card with, Near Dark (1987).
  2. The 3 of Swords tarot card with, The Love Witch (2016).
  3. The Tower tarot card with, The Sentinel (1977).
  4. The Hermit tarot card with, The Thing (1982).
  5. The Chariot tarot card with, Lost Highway (1997).

This article in dazeddigital.com looks at Gen Z's approach to online TikTok predictions. The article cites the example of several TikTok users, such as one who began watching these online tarot readings last year, following a turbulent breakup, finding them to be a source of comfort. This particular user also makes the point that, "It's comforting to hear non-biased strangers on the internet indirectly helping you come to conclusions on things you already knew". He also says, "I know I need to practice self-love. But hearing a dozen or so people on TikTok tell me that the universe wants me to practice self-love? That feels kind of good and affirming."

The article also cites Linda Woodhead, the Head of Department in Theology and Religious Studies at King's College London, who says, "Between 20 to 25 per cent of people believe in fortune telling, and that's remained completely consistent since the 1950s. Every generation seems to rediscover it, but what it gives to people does change over time."

According to the author of this piece, Helen Li, "Alternative spiritual practices like meditating and collecting crystals are on the rise in China, prompting a crackdown by the country's internet regulators." She also writes that, "Authorities are imposing stricter rules on activities often deemed to be 'Superstitious'".

One woman told the South China Morning post that she spent more than 10,000 yuan ($1,400) on the Chinese psychic and astrology app Cece, in just two months. The company's CEO said last year that Cece was "A tech company that makes counseling accessible for everyone." Rest of World reported that speaking with gurus on Cece can still be more affordable than traditional psychotherapy, costing as little as 60 yuan ($8.40) for a 30-minute session. Chinese internet regulators have increasingly banned creators from profiting off of "Superstitious" services, which can sometimes add up to unregulated mental health counseling. Last year, the Cyberspace Administration of China said it would seek to punish "Service providers who offer fortune telling sessions."

The astrologer Lisa Stardust told US magazine, TODAY that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck easily understand each other, thanks to their shared moon and sun signs. According to Stardust they are both Leos and, "The couple shares a strong emotional bond due to their moon signs being in Scorpio." So her conclusion is, "Together, they can make things happen. They have faith in each other and are each other's strongest supporters, always rooting for each other's success."

Astrologer Kyle Thomas says Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce are 'compatible across the board'. He told Fox News Digital that he gives the pair's astrological compatibility a "Nine out of ten."

WomensHealtMag explores if people are really using Tarot readings as an alternative to therapy. The writer, Alice Porter narrates her experience at a weekend at Medicine Festival. She confesses that, "I'm no stranger to traditional therapy. From talking therapy to CBT and even a couple of months of hypnotherapy, my mental health has massively benefitted from seeking out counselling in various forms over the years." She also admits that, "I was surprised to find myself crying in a tent last summer, opening up about my feelings and experiences - as I have in therapy sessions - during my first-ever Tarot reading."

Porter said this of the reading, "I found myself unpacking my feelings and opening up in a way I'm not even able to do with my closest friends - and within minutes I was in tears. The experience felt like a therapy session." At the end of the reading Porter concluded that, "If people say Tarot is helping their mental health, then that's what it's doing."

Staff writers at Taiwan News, Aimi Otani and Keira Chang have published tarot readings for the Chinese 'Year of the Dragon'. These readings can provide personal insights. The reader is to select one card of the four shown and predictions based on an interpretation of this card, have been provided. These predictions cover:

  1. Single people.
  2. Those in stable relationships.
  3. Those with relationship concerns.

This article shows details of the ancient astrology manuscript, 'The Liber astrologiae', kept in the British Library, Sloane MS 3983. Liber Albumazarus (Liber astrologiae), which has been translated into Latin from the Persian by an otherwise unknown author, named Georgius Zothorus Zaparus Fendulus. He describes himself as a sacerdotus (a 'priest' or 'cleric'), philosopher and courtier.

The author's prologue begins with an account of how he came upon the current text during his travels through Babylon and Persia, having already translated numerous texts from Persian and Syriac into Latin. He claims to have translated it from the Persian and Indian languages into Latin.

The text itself opens with a very brief summary of the basic astronomical and astrological knowledge that one might need in order to understand the structure of the cosmos, including a discussion of the planets and their orbs, of the 1022 stars and of the 48 constellations into which the Ancients arranged the stars into recognisable figures from their own mythologies. Fendulus also presents a series of astrological concepts, such as the different qualities that the twelve signs of the zodiac possess and bring to bear on events on Earth.
