Malala Yousafzai

Activist and Campaigner Malala Yousafzai will turn 24 on July 12

Malala has lived in the UK since her attempted assassination in Pakistan, when she became “the most famous teenager in the world”. She campaigns for girls’ education and is the youngest ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.


Malala’s exceptional courage and determination comes through in the first card on my table, The Star - a shining symbol in the sky linked to rebirth and renewal. This suggests whatever Malala has achieved so far is just the start and her global destiny can take her to a leadership role never before held by a female. This is also a strong healing card, of physical peace after a time of uncertainty.

Self Sacrifice

Card Two is Self Sacrifice, the “crossroads card” of taking a plunge. And despite some stormy waters, never looking back. A deep wish that may have been buried can be freed soon - and a personal appearance, maybe on an unlikely TV show, can be part of this.

Water King

Lastly, I draw the Water King, suggesting a supportive connection with an exceptional, slightly older man, who is wise but comes from a totally different world. Travelling over water, on a ship with a male name - maybe Royal - can be a voyage of personal discovery.
