Tarot card reading is a form of cartomancy whereby practitioners use tarot cards purportedly to gain insight into the past, present or future. They formulate a question, then draw cards to interpret them for this end. A traditional tarot deck consists of 78 cards, which can be split into two groups, the Major Arcana, and Minor Arcana. French-suited playing cards can also be used; as can any card system with suits assigned to identifiable elements (e.g., air, earth, fire, water).

Vedic astrology is a system of predicting future events and understanding the present and past through the study of the planets, stars, and other heavenly bodies. 

It is believed to be one of the oldest forms of astrology, with its origins dating back to around 5,000 years ago in India. The goal of Vedic astrology is to help people understand their karma and make better choices in their lives.


In Vedic astrology, Rahu is the lord of the north node of the moon and is associated with worldly desires. The 10th house is associated with career, reputation, and social status. When Rahu is in the 10th house, it can bring mixed results. With the influence of Rahu in the 10th house, one may not be able to achieve success in his career and life.

On one hand, it can give a person success and power. But on the other hand, it can also create problems in one’s career and social life.

There are some remedies that can be done to mitigate the negative effects of Rahu in the 10th house. According to Hindu astrology, Rahu is a malefic planet and has an affinity with the 10th house.
