Five of Cups. It's easy to cry over spilt milk when others have disappointed us: "Why aren't they are responsible or as loving as I am? Don't they know how they're bumming me out?" Your challenge today is to examine what's left in the glass. Is it half-full or half-empty? Either way, use what's there to replenish yourself. It's better than succumbing to sorrow.
 

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!
 

Queen of Cups. The Queen of Cups wants you to know that if there was ever a time to get all swoony over art, beauty, and love, that time is now. So, what are you waiting for? Go forth and spread the joy. Even better: find ways to nurture your nearest and dearest so they'll be swooning over you.
 

King of Wands. Rah rah rah! It's time for you to marshal the forces of enthusiasm. After all, without enthusiasm, it's hard to turn ideas into reality. If you're feeling decidedly inert these days, is there someone in your life who can cheer you on? Bonus points: Find someone who can offer concrete advice on how best to charge forth.

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.

 

Ten of Swords. "So close, yet so far away!" is your message for the day. The good news: a much labored over project is just about ready to be shared with the world. The bad news: the amount of work remaining feels plain overwhelming. At this stage of the game, when you're so plumb tired, it's easy to throw up one's hands and walk away. However, that's no solution. Buckle down and get it done.
 

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.
 

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!

The Hanged Man. You may be wanting to move forward, but life is throwing a big red light your way. Instead of gunning your engine, give into the portents of the time. Yes, it's frustrating, but sometimes surrendering to the powers-that-be is the best road to take. Trust us, there's a lesson here somewhere. Figure it out.
 

Six of Swords. Things aren't as bad as they seem. Really. Today, keep your eyes open for information to help you move beyond your current limitations. Is there a point of view you haven't considered? Or a class or book that might help you learn new skills? Alternately, a quick trip from home may help you gain some distance from whatever's been troubling you. Time to see the forest for the trees.
 

Four of Wands. What does home mean to you? Is it the physical structure where you live? Or is home best expressed in the presence of the people we most love? Whichever concept you prefer, today brings opportunities to put down roots where they're most desired. After all, there's no place like home.
 

Three of Wands. If you've been waiting impatiently to hear back from the world about a pet project, today should bring good news. Time to move onto the next stage of development! Nothing cooking in your life? Don't be afraid to take action with clear intent. The portents are positive.
