Seven of Pentacles. As the song goes, the waiting is the hardest part. And right now, that's where you're at with a long a-borning project. The waiting is the least fun of the cycle of creation—it requires trust that all will work out. The appearance of the Seven of Pentacles suggests you won't have to be patient for too much longer. In the meantime, find ways to nurture yourself. Refill the well.

Eight of Pentacles. Hi ho! Hi ho! It's off to work you go. Today, your focus is on nose to the grindstone stuff. Go forth, meet those deadlines.

Two of Swords. Your challenge today is to call a truce on a troublesome situation. Have faith it can be fixed—just not right now. Sometimes "good enough" may not be enough: it's putting a bandaid on a wound when stitches are called for. But sometimes "good enough" is the best we can do. Be at peace.
