Friday, January 19th

 

The Chariot. If you've been stuck revving your engine, today will mark a dramatic shift of gears. Get ready to move into the next phase of your life. Expect transitions to go smoothly, as if you are being pulled by the forces of fate and fortune. Not happening as you'd like? Look for opportunities to advance your agenda.

 

Ace of Swords. What would you learn if you had the druthers? The appearance of the Ace of Swords suggests the time is nigh for a new cycle of intellectual growth. After all, the more you know, the more you grow. Alternately, if you've been ruminating on a situation for too long, use this energy to suss out the truth. Cut to the chase!

 

Six of Cups. Stop and smell the roses! Today is the perfect time to cocoon with your nearest and dearest, especially if you have any little ones or furry friends. If you're experiencing a lack of harmony on the home front, think back to when you were at your happiest. What lesson can you take away to increase your peace?

 

Five of Pentacles. How wealthy are you really? That's the challenge posed for you by the Five of Pentacles. On the surface you may be frustrated by a lack of ka-ching right now: not enough resources, a disappointing business opportunity. However, what's really going on in your bank account may reflect something entirely different. Your challenge today: take stock of what truly nurtures you. A pile of gold means little if we're emotionally impoverished.

Queen of Wands. Today the Queen of Wands will provide you with ample opportunities to show off how clever you can be particularly in the workplace. Time to bedazzle those movers and shakers high up on the food chain! Do what you can to gain their support for your long term goals. After all, big deeds require a big team of helpers.

 

Queen of Swords. As the saying goes, experience is the comb life gives us after we've lost our hair. However, the Queen of Swords possesses the Mad Skillz to use that comb on whatever life throws her way. Today, your task is to use past experience to fix what ails you now. Cut the wheat from the chaff.

 

The Magician. Alchemy is the art of creating gold from base metals—to spin straw into silk. Today will offer you the perfect opportunity to work this angle for all it's worth. Where can you take charge to transform your life? Claim your power! Alternately, you may be feeling a new awareness of your creativity as you get in touch with a higher purpose.

 

The Fool. If you've been thinking of doing something crazy, the portents for today suggest it may not be so crazy after all. That said, don't go jumping off a cliff without a parachute. Pack your suitcase with everything you need for your journey into the new. Otherwise you may end up flailing mid-air.

Four of Cups. The first glass of wine warms the blood. The second glass turns the world pink and pretty. But by the fourth glass—well, it's hangover time. The takeaway from this nifty parable: Sometimes too much of a good thing isn't a good thing. Today, make moderation your friend.

 

Seven of Wands. All that hard work you've been doing may have felt like climbing to the top of a mountain. Now that you're up there, what a bummer to find the view less than felicitous. Good news: you do have the advantage in this situation. Bad news: first you have to deal with people who oppose your plans. You can do it!

 

Three of Wands. If you've been waiting impatiently to hear back from the world about a pet project, today should bring good news. Time to move onto the next stage of development! Nothing cooking in your life? Don't be afraid to take action with clear intent. The portents are positive.

 

Judgement. Change can be frightening. But it can also be good: after puttering along on the local road, your life is about to move onto the express lane. Today, keep your eyes open for important news that may lead to big decisions. Whatever it is, it's necessary.
