Depending on how your personal finances are, the new financial year either fills you with dread or joy. Rising living costs mean British people have been using overdrafts and credit cards more – and according to data from moneysupermarket.com, four million people have borrowed from friends and family.
Whatever your financial situation, would you consider using a clairvoyant to find out what was going to happen to your finances? Well I did. Eager for some clarity about the year ahead, I consulted clairvoyant Karen Bashford, who describes herself as a ‘soulful business mentor’.
As well as giving tailor-made Tarot readings, Karen uses her 20 years’ experience of working in the financial services industry to guide clients to financial success, which could include changing their career path or restructuring their existing business.
In recent months, she has noticed that there has been a lot more interest in Tarot readings as ‘it does give peace of mind in times of worry.’
‘People are becoming more open to finding guidance on a spiritual level, far more than previously’, she explains.
The venue for this psychic consultation? Why the Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes, in London’s Baker Street. Would the Tarot readings be shrouded in mystery? Would I finally find out when the Bitcoin bubble would burst, when UK interest rates would rise? Or if there would be another financial crisis?
A novice to the Tarot reading game, I waited to hear what Karen had to say. Would I pick the Fool? The Lovers, Death, or the Wheel of Fortune?
What direction will the UK economy go in 2018?
Karen: ‘The UK economy is going to experience lots of conflicts. People will continue to feel that everything is in limbo. In fact, we will come to a standstill. Unfortunately, a lot of people are going to suffer financially because it is way too volatile at the moment.
