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.

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 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.

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.
