THURSDAY, JULY 18th


The Empress. Whatever gender you identify with, the presence of the Empress suggests there's something long-aborning within you. It may be something physical, or it may be metaphorical. Either way, it's been incubating in you for some time, and it is sooo ready to be out in the world. Go forth, and be like the earth. Bloom!

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.

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.

Wheel of Fortune. Sometimes we're in the driver's seat. Other times ... not so much. Today, the Wheel of Fortune suggests that the forces of Chance are guiding your car, not you. This loss of control can lead to feelings of anxiety and fear. Your challenge: trust in the ultimate generosity of the universe. In the long run, it's all meant to be—even it seems capricious right now.

Page of Wands. New ideas are exciting—and you're overflowing with them right now. However, don't let get too dazzled by what could be. Make sure to weigh your inspiration in the court of reality. Alternately, keep your eyes open for messages from an inexperienced young person who may be very passionate but inexperienced. All that glitters may not be gold.

Strength. 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.

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.

Four of Swords. Sometimes we're meant to forge ahead despite signs to the contrary. Other times, not so much. The appearance of the Four of Swords suggests that it's the latter, not the former, for you today. Right now, it's imperative for you to heal from whatever's been bothering your body and soul. Your mission: find balance by detaching from the everyday world.

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 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.

Four of Wands. What does home mean to you? Is it the physical structure where you live? Or is home best expressed in the presence of the people we most love? Whichever concept you prefer, today brings opportunities to put down roots where they're most desired. After all, there's no place like home.
