Tuesday, November 21st

 

King of Swords. Can't decide about an Important Life Issue? In the ongoing struggle between head and heart, the King of Swords says it's best to let the head win—for now. Take a step back to gain some distance. If you honestly don't know what to do, seek out an authority who won't sugarcoat their words to protect your feelings. What you need now is the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

 

The Hierophant. You may feel that all eyes are upon you today—and you'd be right. However, instead of going into a paranoid hidey-hole, use this awareness to figure how you're coming off to the powers-that-be. Is your public persona supporting your worldly goals? If not, today will remind you that sometimes the best move is to follow the rules. You'll have other opportunities to rock the boat.

 

Ten of Pentacles. What would make you feel truly wealthy in this material world: A comfortable home? A fat bank account? A devoted family to share these with? If you've been struggling of late attaining these most human of necessities, the Ten of Pentacles suggests you won't be for long. Today, look for ways to gather the harvest surrounding you. Like grapes ripening in the autumn sun, your goals are ripe for the plucking.

 

The Devil. 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.

Knight of Wands. Today, the Knight of Wands invites you to trot forward into whatever new schemes you've been mulling. Don't delay to take initiative. Alternately, the Knight of Wands can signify someone who inspires like a jolt of electricity from the great beyond. Use their energy to make your move.

 

Eight of Swords. If you're feeling victimized by life these days, the Eight of Swords invites us to remove our blindfold. Today, take time to examine things as they are, not how they make you feel. Are your emotions entrapping you? Or someone else? Brainstorm ways you can free yourself.

 

King of Cups. When the King of Cups appears, he's telling us to get real with our artistic dreams: what do you really *really* want? If there was ever a time to combine inspiration with the realities of the marketplace, today is it. Alternately, the King of Cups can symbolize someone who represents the highest balance of artistic integrity and worldly influence. They've made their way in the world. So can you. What can they teach you?

 

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.

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.

 

Six of Swords. Things aren't as bad as they seem. Really. Today, keep your eyes open for information to help you move beyond your current limitations. Is there a point of view you haven't considered? Or a class or book that might help you learn new skills? Alternately, a quick trip from home may help you gain some distance from whatever's been troubling you. Time to see the forest for the trees.

 

The Magician. Alchemy is the art of creating gold from base metals—to spin straw into silk. Today will offer you the perfect opportunity to work this angle for all it's worth. Where can you take charge to transform your life? Claim your power! Alternately, you may be feeling a new awareness of your creativity as you get in touch with a higher purpose.

 

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.
