Friday, May 26th

 

Page of Pentacles. The Page of Pentacles offers a message about a message: get ready for communications offering information to push your business to the next level. Alternately, if you've been waiting for delayed payments, they should be showing up asap. Ka-ching!
 

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 Wands. If life has felt sluggish lately, all that's going to change tout de suite. Important communications will be shooting your way like a bolt out of the blue: unexpected telephone calls, surprise letters, and e-mails. All these will serve to release you from the uncertainties dogging you. Alternately, if your phone isn't ringing as you'd like, perhaps it's time to let your fingers do the walking. Shift from the local road to the express lane..
 

Two of Swords. Your challenge today is to call a truce on a troublesome situation. Have faith it can be fixed—just not right now. Sometimes "good enough" may not be enough: it's putting a bandaid on a wound when stitches are called for. But sometimes "good enough" is the best we can do. Be at peace.

Nine of Wands. You've been working so hard for so long that by now you should have something to show for it. And you don't. At this stage of the game, you're so darn exhausted it's tempting to just chuck it all. But you'd be wrong. Take a break to nurse your wounds before continuing on. You'll get there. Success is closer than you think.
 

Two of Pentacles. Overwhelmed by the prospect of a busy day? Take comfort in knowing you will get it all done. Right now, you're able to juggle a lot of responsibilities: jobs, opportunities, ideas, and more. Just make certain to make time to find balance between the pressures of the world and your personal needs.
 

The Fool. If you've been thinking of doing something crazy, the portents for today suggest it may not be so crazy after all. That said, don't go jumping off a cliff without a parachute. Pack your suitcase with everything you need for your journey into the new. Otherwise you may end up flailing mid-air.
 

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!

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?
 

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.
 

Strength. Eleanor Roosevelt famously claimed that a woman is like a tea bag; you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water. Whatever your gender, you've recently been in enough hot water that you've been pushed past your boiling point. Good news: like that metaphorical tea bag, you're finally strong enough to tame the forces bullying you.
 

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!
