4.4

“The date is 1st April, 2004, Thursday. The time is 5:30 and I will now begin a reading of the birth chart of the subject named Sitara. May the Gods be with us.”

He doesn’t know why he drones this under his breath each time he begins reading a horoscope, but it has become second nature. Even though he knows that people only bring horoscopes to him when they are in trouble so the Gods are rarely with them. When he has ‘clients’ sitting in front of him, he says it very quietly. But when he is alone, he feels more at ease and the words come out like a protective chant. It was something his father used to do and he does it, almost automatically.
