I was invited by Mr Raghu on Fri 28th Dec 2013 from Andhra Jyothi 's Telugu TV channel ABN TV for doing a show on Tarot Predictions for 2013. I was very excited but then immediately I was concerned about language. ABN TV being local Telugu channel would need a Telegu speaking person. I expressed my concern to the creative directive Ms Sudha and she said she would be having an anchor who would translate it accordingly.
They wanted me to come the very next day but somehow I got one more day to arrange for items and prepare. I had long weekend coming up and I had some pre plans for 4 days , watching movie daily , my friend's Bday plans for 30th Dec , New year party plans what not.
I was so tensed, I was so excited, I was scared ....
Saturday evening I went looking for a crystal ball. Crystals I thought they would be nice props... found none. I didn't even find good thick candles. Sunday morning tired after coming back from late night party, had an impromptu guest for overnight stay - a friend who wanted me to do PLR for her. Since I was so tired I just did Tarot reading for her. By the time we slept it was too late. I woke up tensed, immediately opened my laptop and started searching for what other were saying for 2013 predictions. I was so tensed what to wear, what shoes...I thought I would get artificial nails done as focus would be on my hands and didn't find one parlour in Hyderabad ( I called 10-15 parlours) . Shooting was scheduled for evening 3 pm and by noon I was freaking out. Picked a fight with Mom... called Dad complaining about her and what not :-(
Eventually I calmed down , discussed how to do Tarot for different celebrity types - Politicians, Actors, Sports person etc... She was giving me so much information. integration of Tarot and Astrology, suggestion of crystals based on Sun Signs and what not and I was again scared. Only after some "Morale" boosting from my dear friend and Mom I was ready to go.
Reached the venue, met Raghu gentle soul , met producer...got make-up touch up done, met the crew, Mr Phani the anchor... only when I reached the set I realised the table was too small !! Boom next two hours went by to figure out a table, everything had to rearranged , cameras , lights , there is so much technicality.
By the time we started I was so exhausted. Thanks God me munched on masala dosa before hand else we would have starved too.
I also got to know all the celebrity of whom I have to do Tarot are actually Politicians. I got so scared, I called my mother immediately concerned about what if they tell me to predict 2014 election on television. Andhra Pradesh is on a crucial stage where there are talk of separate Telengana sate , what if they tell me to predict that. I can do it but not on television please. My mom gave me some professional tips and I was finally ready.
Then I did tarot for 12 Sun Signs some 5 poliitical leaders , Andhra Pradesh as state and India as country. It went quite well, I would post the details about the predictions in my next post along with some pictures.
