Knight of Cups. Sometimes artistic inspiration comes in like the calvary on a horse. Other times, it arrives on little cat's feet. In either case, listen for offers that allow you to use your talents to their fullest. Alternately, the Knight of Cups may symbolize a talented young man who can push you toward great feats of love and art. Drink deeply!

 

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.

 

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.

 

The Empress. 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!

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.

 

The Sun. Wherever you live, the appearance of The Sun suggests it's summer in your heart right now. Today, drink in the expansive, life-affirming energy currently surrounding you. This is the perfect opportunity to give way to the powerful forces of creativity and inspiration. As well, children may figure prominently in your life at this time.

 

Three of Cups. Get ready to get happy! Today is going to be one for the record books. Whether the goodness coming your way is a family reunion, a gathering between friends, or just some welcome news, drink deeply of the wine of satisfaction. Celebrate!

 

Ten of Cups. Can you have too much of good thing? We think not. Your lesson today is to take it all in—and we do mean all: personal happiness, satisfying love relationships, family harmony, and much more. Just remember to say thank you and share.

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!

 

Nine of Swords. How's your sleep these days? If anxiety has been keeping you awake, the Nine of Swords implores us to take a deeper look at the Deep Issues that plague our soul. Take charge by using your intellect to transcend incapitating emotions. Unable to make a clean break from the worries binding you? Seek assistance to free yourself—you don't have to go this alone.

 

Page of Swords. Get ready for an unexpected message to cut through the confusion. Whatever you learn today will will enable to you make things a bit better all around, most especially for yourself. No news coming your way? Keep your eyes open: someone you might have considered out of the loop may surprise you by knowing more than you'd expect.

 

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!
