Seven of Cups

Overindulging in thoughts of what the future may bring? While sweet dreams may be made of these, today it's time to get real. Use your fantasies for what they are: a roadmap to change your life for the better. Move forward and rejoin the world. Otherwise, your head may remain in the clouds.

Death

If you've been clinging onto something in your life that has outlived its usefulness, this is the perfect day to bid adieu to the old, bon jour to the new. The changes before you may feel painful to contemplate, but they're necessary. Your challenge is to allow the old to fertilize the new without fear.

Seven of Swords

Feeling vulnerable? Rest assured you're not imagining things: there is a definite need for caution today. So go forth and gather your weapons just in case. However, don't go too far: be defensive, not aggressive. Otherwise those weapons could be used against you.

The Star

If you've been looking for a sign that the universe supports your highest hopes, today will present you with a big gold star. Any feelings of insecurity and unworthiness are to be banished. To paraphrase Joseph Campell, when you follow your bliss without fear, expect unexpected doors to appear. Hope is your friend.

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 Pentacles

The Nine of Pentacles sends the message that sometimes our most sacred duty is to take pleasure in the physical world. After all, what's the point of working hard if you can't enjoy the fruits of your labors? Smell the roses, make love, and be joyful.

Five of Cups

It's easy to cry over spilt milk when others have disappointed us: "Why aren't they are responsible or as loving as I am? Don't they know how they're bumming me out?" Your challenge today is to examine what's left in the glass. Is it half-full or half-empty? Either way, use what's there to replenish yourself. It's better than succumbing to sorrow.

Ten of Wands

"So close, yet so far away!" is your message for the day. The good news: a much labored over project is just about ready to be shared with the world. The bad news: the amount of work remaining feels plain overwhelming. At this stage of the game, when you're so plumb tired, it's easy to throw up one's hands and walk away. However, that's no solution. Buckle down and get it done.

Ten of Swords

Your life of late has left you feeling a bit battered, but today marks the end of a difficult situation. From here, things can only get better. Best of all, you won't need go through this experience again: you've gained plenty of wisdom from your struggles. For extra karma points, share all you've learned with someone so they can avoid treading the same rocky road.

Three of Pentacles

What big project could you accomplish if you had others to help you? The Three of Pentacles invites us to get real—and to get ambitious. Make a list of constructive, pragmatic steps that will take you from Point A to Z. Your task today: find helpers whose talents will help your dreams take on concrete form. After all, we can't do it all alone.

Six of Wands

After much work and struggle, victory arrives at last—and it's really sweet! Look to receive hard-won acknowledgement and honor from those around you. If you're not feeling it, find ways to use your highest courage and integrity to shift the odds. Right now, the odds are ever in your favor.

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.
