TUESDAY, AUGUST 20th


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.

Judgement. Change can be frightening. But it can also be good: after puttering along on the local road, your life is about to move onto the express lane. Today, keep your eyes open for important news that may lead to big decisions. Whatever it is, it's necessary.

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.

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.

Page of Cups. There's an important message waiting for you, but it's not going to arrive as you'd expect. Today, keep your eyes open for unexpected flashes of intuition and inspiring dreams. Not happening? Give yourself permission to doodle or freewrite without expectations. See what dreams may come in artistic form.

Six of Cups. Stop and smell the roses! Today is the perfect time to cocoon with your nearest and dearest, especially if you have any little ones or furry friends. If you're experiencing a lack of harmony on the home front, think back to when you were at your happiest. What lesson can you take away to increase your peace?

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, bonjour 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.

Queen of Wands. Today the Queen of Wands will provide you with ample opportunities to show off how clever you can be particularly in the workplace. Time to bedazzle those movers and shakers high up on the food chain! Do what you can to gain their support for your long term goals. After all, big deeds require a big team of helpers.

Eight of Cups. Have itchy feet? A stomach that's never quite satisfied with the plate set before you? That's understandable: today, you're craving more authenticity in your life -- whether that take the form of more satisfying relationships, more meaningful employment, or just finding a nearest and dearest to plain understand you as you really are, not what want you to be. You're ready to move onto a more substantive life.

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.

The Chariot. If you've been stuck revving your engine, today will mark a dramatic shift of gears. Get ready to move into the next phase of your life. Expect transitions to go smoothly, as if you are being pulled by the forces of fate and fortune. Not happening as you'd like? Look for opportunities to advance your agenda.
