Tarot Reading 3rd August 2020 – 9th August 2020

Aries (21 March –19 April)

You need some break from nightmares that don’t let you sleep properly. You need some time out, and for that you should divert your attention to something light and happy. You need to entertain yourself a bit because you have forgotten how to have fun because of the present global pandemic. You are very much affected by what is happening around, and beyond your surroundings, that is the reason why you are so tense.

Focus on the positives rather than concentrating only on the negatives of any situation and try to come out of this mindset where everything which is happening is wrong or bad. Good things are also happening, focus on them. With determination, you can again start to live a normal life without taking tensions or getting upset. Focus on the bright side of life.

Something in your life will change this week, and you might meet your partner – love or business, or any partnership can happen during this week. You might also like to have a little get together with your very close friends and have a good time with them. Take some time out and spend with your close friends in any way you can.

Are you becoming someone who dislikes other religions because you think they should be hated? You are becoming too rigid and narrow-minded. It is better you start respecting every religion and see them as your friends and not your enemy. You are going on the wrong path of hatred, and you should come back to the path of friendliness with every religion.

Don’t listen to others who feed you with such venom and listen to your own heart which continuously telling you to start loving every individual regardless of her/his religion. The path that you should walk on must be that of love and friendship and not hatred.

Cancer (21 June – 22 July)

In between experiencing the deceit and heartbreak, your life will become better than before, and you will have some reasons to take a huge sigh of relief as if the worst is over. You have been deceived by someone, and you were truly miserable.

But now since the things are changing for the better, forget the past and move on. Good times are on the horizon, and you shall live in peace in the time to come. Heal your heart and don’t dwell in the past; otherwise, you won’t be able to appreciate the new in your life which is in your favour.

Leo (23 July – 22 August)

If you want justice to be done with you, do justice with others. Are you not listening to someone who has a lot to tell you? There is someone who wants to tell you something basically has a lot to share, and there are experiences of that person or those persons. They want to share with you something but unable to because you don’t have time.

Take time out for people who are close to you and listen to them. Give them importance. They are your near and dear once, and they need some attention. They are going through a lot, and you can help them and show support by listening to them and solving their problems. Listen to them; they have things to share. Dig them and find out what they have to tell you if they are not telling you anything.

Virgo (23 August – 22 September)

There is someone who is very dominating and is torturing you so much, that you are in great stress. You have to tactically handle this person rather than emotionally firstly by not taking anything personally. This person is confused and doesn’t know how to handle herself/himself. You can give your helping hand if this person allows. She/he is trying to force things on others, but you can peacefully resolve all the issues without being seen as a rebellion. With tact and gentle behaviour, you can handle this situation and can come out of your problems.

Libra (23 September – 22 October)

Something new is swiftly coming towards you. It could be a new college admission, a new job or a new project. Whatever new is coming must be welcomed with an open mind and an open heart. This opportunity maybe a little smaller than you were expecting, but it still has something to offer if you think about it with a fresh mind and open mindset. Don’t overlook it just because it is a smaller opportunity. Something is better than nothing. Think in this way.

Also, you are encouraged to spend some quality time together with friends and family because it is essential. You need the support of people, and you have been too alone for a lot of time, you need your people beside you. No one can live alone forever, and hence friends and family should always be given prime importance.

Scorpio (23 October – 21 November)

June 8th to June 14th Tarot Reading

You are working like a machine. You should take a break and try to live a balanced life where you have ample time for your family. Your family is concerned about you, and they want you to stop now – at least for some time. You are not taking any rest at all, and your body needs rest, or else you might get caught up on in major sickness. So work only that much which can be done in the day time. Don’t extend it at night as well. Hire someone to take care of your extra work but don’t expand your work until you have help.

Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December)

June 8th to June 14th Tarot Reading

You need some excitement in life because you are too bored. You don’t see the magic in life because you are disinterested in experimenting and seeing things from a different perspective. You need inspiration.

On the other hand, you do things without thinking at all on a whim. You should decide after discussing with your near and dear ones and not in a rush. Take time and then decide because these decisions are crucial for you.

Capricorn (22 December – 19 January)

June 8th to June 14th Tarot Reading

There is a great sadness in your life right now, and you need a respite from it. Your grief is genuine and what is in store is – Hope. Be hopeful that things will change because they are going to change, and you are advised to be in touch with those people to nourish you with love, compassion, kindness, empathy and understanding. Go to these people and pour your heart out. You need to get healed, and these people can help you in healing. Don’t lose hope and look forward to the good time.

Aquarius (20 January – 18 February)

Expect extreme changes in life which will unsettle you and shake you to the core. And these changes are a mix of good and bad. You want to look ahead, but these changes are not letting you move forward but taking you to something else. Your direction has changed, and you feel discouraged and disheartened, but this experience will change you to a certain extent, and you can always do as you planned. But are you sure what you planned earlier is the same you plan today? Or you have changed? Life is a roller coaster ride, and the coming time will show you this.

Pisces (19 February – 20 March)

June 8th to June 14th Tarot Reading

This is not the time to begin any new thing but continue with what you have been doing. Do anything only when you are convinced. Because many obstacles will come in the way if you do anything right now. Hence carry on with your work knowing that obstacle can come. This is the time of chaos and conflicts; hence be careful you don’t jump in any dispute with another person. Avoid conflicts. Whatever it is, you still shouldn’t give up. Never give up and stay strong. Your strength will help you in adverse situations.

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.
