Tarot Reading 24th August 2020 – 30th August 2020

Aries (21 March –19 April)

You are an entrepreneur, and you are plagued with negative thinking because of the global situation these days. Your business has been affected terribly, and you are very stressed out at the moment. The better days are not far away though however grim the situation looks like. Have some faith in whichever God you believe in and keep doing things that you should be doing. Don’t give up right now as a lot is in store in future. Things will change for good once again, but this change will be very slow and steady. Don’t expect for miracles right now.

Confusion and stress are a huge part of your daily life these days. You are anxious as well, and you want things to get better. But the point is that even if things improve, your anxiety won’t change much and this is because of your ‘over-thinking’ problem. You think a lot, and although everything is fine in your life, your over-thinking kills the excitement and happiness. It is as if you can’t stand being happy. You must immediately stop negative overthinking and start expecting positive outcomes which are actually positive, but the negativity blinds you that you can’t see positive things happening. Change your perception from negative to positive. Everything will look better when you do that.

You have to find yourself out first and then move ahead. You are in a total fix, and you don’t know who you are and where you stand. The best way to find yourself is by changing your perception from surface to deep level and to go away from the noise of the city and take some time out to contemplate on your entire life. You need some quality time with yourself and then when you find yourself, you will be able to move ahead in life. Otherwise you will drag yourself and will live half-heartedly. Dive deep into yourself to find yourself, and this is the key to a lot of problems you are facing today.

Cancer (21 June – 22 July)

You have lost everything somehow recently, and all you have with you is your hard work and teamwork. With a good team, you can again start building your life, and this team will be a great help to you. You are not alone, and you have people with you who will work with you and for you as well.

Have good relations with your team and appreciate their hard work instead of finding faults. You already have good relations with them, but you are advised to maintain these relationships not just for your benefit, but also because they have been with you in your thick and thin. These relations can help you move from a bad situation to better days. Hence be good to your team members.

Leo (23 July – 22 August)

You are extremely burdened with a lot of things, and you only need to pick and choose your battles. Don’t take the entire burden on yourself but distribute and let others share it with you. In this way, you can actually achieve everything you wanted – by lessening your load. You should control your habit of doing everything alone. Instead, you should take the help of others and delegate work to others also equally so that you aren’t alone. Learn to say ‘NO’! You say ‘Yes’ to everything and hence so much burden on you.

Virgo (23 August – 22 September)

One decision of yours can change your fate, and this decision if not taken quickly or delayed, can snatch excellent opportunities from you. But you have to take this decision as soon as possible because these opportunities will not stay for long. You should take a quick decision, and there will be more chances for your life to transform.

Libra (23 September – 22 October)

You are trying to balance two people in your life who are poles apart. Both of them are way different from each other, and you don’t seem to find a way out from either of them. You are like sandwiched between the two, and you don’t know how to deal with them.

The first advice would be – Humour. Bring humour in life and take things lightly for the time being. Humour can save you from this situation and take a leadership role rather than sitting as an audience. Take charge and lead from the front, and this will also save you from getting lost and confused and depressed even. Take the lead, and you shall overcome your problematic situation.

Scorpio (23 October – 21 November)

You are extremely confused and very stressed, and you have almost given up. The best thing that you still have is your intelligence. You can make a turnaround of the situation with your intelligence. You shouldn’t give up just yet. There is more to life, and there is always a ray of hope. You should be hopeful and should use your intelligence and wisdom to come out of the stressful situation you are in. Always remember you can do it. And hence just do it!

Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December)

June 8th to June 14th Tarot Reading

This phase has ended, and another step has begun. You cannot go in the past, but you can certainly fix things in the present and the future. Although a lot has gone by in the past, you still have a lot of hope. Don’t surrender to defeat but give a befitting reply to your adverse circumstances.

All your wounds will be healed with time, and you will see how far you have come on your own. So, never give and keep going on your path. You are on the right path, and hence you should continue on your way. All of your sorrow will vanish in the time to come. So keep persevering, and you shall see how much of hope is still there in your life.

Capricorn (22 December – 19 January)

You are doing fair enough in your work, and you have a lot of ideas as well to expand your business. All you need is to share your wealth with the poor and needy ones because you should think of giving people back. The best thing would be to start an NGO and do charity through it. You are advised to go full-fledged into charity and involve other people also in it.

Many people need your help and support, and you are extremely capable of doing so. Use your contacts and your resources in helping those who can’t help themselves. You will be at peace with yourself when you help others through donations and charity. Try it; it is a very satisfying experience.

Aquarius (20 January – 18 February)

June 8th to June 14th Tarot Reading

You have a lot of responsibility on your shoulders. All you need is to channelize your energy and focus in the well being of your people rather than bossing around them. You are not given this responsibility to control them; rather, you should try to understand them and be gentle with them. Don’t be harsh and rude to them. Respect them and value them instead of taking advantage of them and taking them for granted. They deserve proper treatment and not harassment.

Pisces (19 February – 20 March)

June 8th to June 14th Tarot Reading

There are a lot of mind games and politics going around you. As if everyone around you wants to subdue you. You are sort of in a battle where no one is at your side. You still can come out of your situation with tact. Use your wit and intellect in solving this situation. You can become a part of this group by using your humour and intention to become a part of this group. There is no other way out. Trust yourself and keep in mind the advice; you can surely make it.

Victoria’s Secret’s Fallen Angels: Is VS Collective Little Too Late?

Published

Victoria Secret's Fallen Angels II News Aur Chai

After years of selling misogynistic fantasies masked as insecurity for women worldwide, Victoria’s Secret (VS), the lingerie and personal care mammoth, has come upon a business-altering decision. Everyone’s aesthetic and sexual fantasy – the VS Angels have fallen.

After multiple accusations of sexual assault, overt body shaming, and transphobia, their refusal to take action against high-profile executives guilty of inappropriate behaviour has led to its downfall. 2018 was possibly the worst year for the company as more body positive and inclusive brands like Aerie, Lively, and Savage X Fenty rose.

The mystical barbie-doll VS Angels, extravagantly clad in wings and bejewelled lingerie, had more or less remained the same in the last three decades since VS started their fashion shows. Models bearing bodies that ‘please’ the male gaze, just-enough-plump and just-enough-toned, were no longer a thing of beauty standards to the common woman. After all, feminists remind us repeatedly that autonomy over lingerie remains with the person who wants to wear it rather than cishet men.

There was a time when lacy push-ups and the thick underwear band labelled PINK was found in the boudoir drawer of every female teenager and adult alike. No one would be caught dead wearing something else. But in a mere decade, the tables have turned as no one would dare step inside the walls of the magnum opus of male sexual fantasy. It’s safe to say that VS brought this tragedy upon itself with its sluggish attitude toward the changing social norms of body positivity and culture inclusivity.

But recently, VS announced a defining move – one which may have come a little too late but alas, it came. Gone were the glamorous, airbrushed, and pushed-up fantasies of the Angels. Instead came in the Victoria’s Secret Collective. This high-profile seven-member board is a chance for VS to redeem its reputation and right its past wrongs. The septet consists of the pink-haired member of the American National Women’s Soccer team, Megan Rapinoe, Actor, entrepreneur, and activist Priyanka Chopra Jonas, inclusivity activist and model Paloma Elsesser, transgender model-actor Valentina Sampaio, Sino-American world champion skier Eileen Gu, model and South Sudanese-Australian model Adut Akech, and English photographer and podcast host Amanda de Cadanet.

This board is a shot at inclusivity and is reflective of real-life women as the members hail from different cultures, are from different age groups, and in some way or another, are more relatable to the common woman. This diverse set of ambassadors will spearhead this new campaign. They will be alternatively seen as an essential part of VS’s revamped brand image, including their advertisements and social media. VS’s new move is indeed a step toward becoming more like their well-off competitors, who are idealistically anti-Victoria’s Secret.

What’s notable is that this decision of VS is not just superficial to woo their consumer base but is one aimed at its very corporate structure. Billionaire Leslie Wexner, the founder of VS’s parent company L Brands, and Ed Razek, a top executive of the said company, will not be a part of the revamped identity of the lingerie giant. Razek and Wexner have been accused multiple times of inappropriate conduct, sexual advances and remarks, and exploitation of models.

VS has made it clear that the two will not be associated with VS anymore. The company will split from L Brands and subsequently from the toiletry giant Bath & Body Works to become an independent entity. VS will now have top-tier decisions taken by more women executives as Martha Pease, the new Chief Marketing Officer, heads the Collective and plans on having an all-women committee.

A complete upheaval of the VS stores will see the signature Angels’ posters stripped off of their walls, TVs, websites, and social media. Mannequins and models will exhibit a diverse range of bodies and products.

In an interview with The New York Times, Martin Waters, a former executive of VS international, said, “When the world was changing, we were too slow to respond. We needed to stop being about what men want and to be about what women want.”

In a recent attempt to foreshadow the company’s announcement of becoming “what women want”, VS launched a Mothers’ Day campaign. Displaying pregnant women as their models was a first for the company. Apparently, for VS, motherhood was not sexy enough till now.

The VS collective board will promote the upcoming product releases such as maternity wear along with the same old thongs and lacy bras. Other TBA products will see a collaboration between Chopra Jonas and Rapinoe.

Skin Care Tips To Survive Summers In India

Published

on

Skin Care in Summer in India | News Aur Chai

The summer heat in India can be harsh on your skin if you don’t take proper care of it. The blistering heat, dust, and pollution take away the natural shine and, in some cases, invite infections. To avoid all of these annoyances and to keep your skin glowing as it did before, try these summer skincare tips:

Clothing

Tight clothing during hot weather will irritate the skin and make sweaty areas of the body itch even more. To combat the heat, cotton and lighter fabrics are vital. Try wearing breathable fabrics.

Diet

Applying creams is not enough; you need to enrich your skin properly to keep it glowing. Juicy fruits and vegetables should be consumed in large quantities as they are high in nutrients and antioxidants that protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Try consuming cooling or seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Exercise

Exercise increases blood flow that ensures that oxygen reaches the skin cells. Any tissue damage (skin burn, etc) is repaired by the body.

Exfoliation

It is a process that helps in the removal of dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Exfoliate your skin regularly for healthy and glowing skin. You can simply use a washcloth to gently scrub your skin. Try this process at least once a week.

Eyes and Lips

Protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses while stepping out in the sun. Protect your lips by applying a lip balm.

Feet

It is important to take care of your feet as well. Give yourself a manicure; remove the dead and dry skin cells with a scrub and moisturize them later.

Minimal Makeup

Go easy on make-up during summers; avoid anything heavy it’s most likely to melt off the minute you step out in the sweltering summer heat. When it comes to makeup during the summers, keep it simple as the skin needs to breathe.

Sunscreen

Summertime necessitates the use of sunscreen. It is important to safeguard yourself from tanning and skin burns. It also helps in protecting our skin from harmful UV rays. You should apply sunscreen at least twice a day. It is a must-have item, if you don’t have one; you should invest in sunscreen.

Stay Hydrated

It is extremely important to stay hydrated; especially during hot weather. Sweat causes us to lose a lot of our body fluids. Our bodies are severely harmed when the levels of body fluids drop. Staying hydrated also helps to flush out toxins from the body and feel refreshed. Carry a bottle of water everywhere you go, set reminders to drink water throughout the day so that you don’t forget to hydrate yourself!

Update your skincare products

It is very important to update your skincare products during summertime. During winters we need stronger creams to fight the cold and dry weather, but in the summer, we need hydrating products. Buy a moisturizer that is lightweight and non-greasy.

 Use natural remedies

Skincare home remedies are useful as they make your skin glow naturally without causing any harm. Applying Aloe Vera gel, Cucumber mask, Coconut oil, Honey mask, Lemon mask, Orange Peel mask, Turmeric paste are few remedies that soothe your skin during summer.
