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.

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.

Three of Swords. Sometimes life is hard, and we're sad for good cause. Other times, we're plain oversensitive from past hurts; even if we were handed the keys to the kingdom, we'd still find cause to complain. Your challenge today: figure out which of these two scenarios have your name on them. Transform grief into understanding.

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.

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.

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.

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.
