Monday, January 22nd
Eleanor Roosevelt famously claimed that a woman is like a tea bag; you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water. Whatever your gender, you've recently been in enough hot water that you've been pushed past your boiling point. Good news: like that metaphorical tea bag, you're finally strong enough to tame the forces bullying you.
Two of Cups.
If you've been feeling lonely, today promises that you may not be alone for long. Keep your eyes open for a new love or friend who will truly "get" you in all your quirkily perfect wonderfulness. Alternately, if your long term relationship could use some reinvigorating and reinvention, the time is nigh. It takes two to tango.
Six of Pentacles.
As the saying goes, sharing is caring. Today, find a way to share your goodness with the world. Whether this means donating resources to your favorite non-profit, or offering your talents to others, it's all the same: the cycle of life demands we give just as we've received. If you're concerned about having your generosity appreciated, rest assured. Whatever you put out will be gratefully received.
King of Wands.
Rah rah rah! It's time for you to marshal the forces of enthusiasm. After all, without enthusiasm, it's hard to turn ideas into reality. If you're feeling decidedly inert these days, is there someone in your life who can cheer you on? Bonus points: Find someone who can offer concrete advice on how best to charge forth.

Ace of Cups.
Hey, your cup runneth over! Today marks the beginning of a new cycle ripe with potential and happiness. Keep your eyes open for start of a new love or friendship that will prove to be especially important and nurturing. Not feeling it? Take a look inside instead: chances are you're gonna find some serious inspiration incubating.
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?
Three of Swords.
Sometimes life is hard, and we're sad for good cause. Other times, we're plain oversensitive from past hurts; even if we were handed the keys to the kingdom, we'd still find cause to complain. Your challenge today: figure out which of these two scenarios have your name on them. Transform grief into understanding.
Feeling a bit emotional? Having vivid dreams? These are all signs that you need to take a step back today to mother your inner child. After all, if you don't take care of yourself, who will? Alternately, take note of any flashes of intuition that may come your way. The wisdom you receive may not be logical, but it will be helpful.

To take advantage of what fate brings, you may need to get your hands dirty in a good way. Roll up your sleeves and get to it. There's much to gain!
Knight of Swords.
What's been holding you back these days? Another person? A situation? A force of nature? Whatever it may be, this has got to end today—or else. Go forth and ask the right questions to gather the right information. Time to use your sword to cut through any confusion!
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.
Ace of Pentacles.
Today marks the start of a new cycle that will be particularly supportive of material prosperity in all its forms. Whether you've been thinking about starting a business, looking for a new home, or beyond, this is the perfect time to get cracking. Embrace the bounty of the world.
