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.

 

The Lovers. Ooooh la la! The Lovers invites you to look for a renewed awareness of the nature of passionate love. How can you best experience it? You may find love in another person. Or you may find it through contemplating the world's bounty. Better yet, find it in yourself: take the time to be your own best friend. After all, if you don't love yourself, who will?

 

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.

 

The Hermit. Do you know where you're going to? Today, allow yourself the necessity of taking a break from the hubbub to better contemplate the direction of your life. Go deep, go silent, go in solitude. At this time, your needs are not so focused on relationships with others, but rather on your relationship with yourself. Trust!

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.

 

Five of Wands. Hey, who's attacking you? It's all their fault, isn't it? Or could it be that you're responsible for fanning the flames of dissention? Perhaps there's something you've chosen to ignore. Your lesson today: just because you're invited to a melee doesn't mean you have to accept. If you refuse to be distracted by petty concerns, a bigger lesson awaits. Choose to be the No Drama Mama.

 

Nine of Cups. What do you most wish for? Love? Prosperity? Emotional satisfaction? Whatever it is, today may bring it to you in a truly harmonious way. Just be certain to take the time to wallow in the sheer satisfaction of it all. Be grateful and share.

 

The Tower. If you've been building on shaky ground, today brings the opportunity to rebuild on solid foundation. It's never fun to start over, but it's better than giving up. Look for a new beginning after a painful ending that may have left you shaken, not stirred. Remember, the only way up is through.

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.

 

The World. This is a great day for sending your fattest and juiciest projects out into the world. If things aren't going quite as planned, reach out to those who might be able to help. Alternately, look for experiences of grace from the great source that nourishes us all. You've reason to trust that the world can be a bountiful place.
 

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. Just make sure you get paid your fair worth for all your labor. If you're not getting the material recognition you'd like, time to finetune your skill set for the marketplace.

 

Nine of Wands. You've been working so hard for so long that by now you should have something to show for it. And you don't. At this stage of the game, you're so darn exhausted it's tempting to just chuck it all. But you'd be wrong. Take a break to nurse your wounds before continuing on. You'll get there. Success is closer than you think.
