Friday, April 28th
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.
Four of Pentacles.
It's good to have a lot to hold onto in your life. However, when does protecting your resources turn into closing yourself off? Today will present you with opportunities to mull this subtle but important distinction. Alternately, if you're feeling a lack of stability in your life on the material plane, it's time to consider ways to keep what's rightfully yours.
Feeling a bit emotional? Having vivid dreams? These are all signs that you need to take a step back today to mother your inner child. After all, if you don't take care of yourself, who will? Alternately, take note of any flashes of intuition that may come your way. The wisdom you receive may not be logical, but it will be helpful.
Two of Cups.
If you've been feeling lonely, today promises that you may not be alone for long. Keep your eyes open for a new love or friend who will truly "get" you in all your quirkily perfect wonderfulness. Alternately, if your long term relationship could use some reinvigorating and reinvention, the time is nigh. It takes two to tango.

Seven of Swords.
Feeling vulnerable? Rest assured you're not imagining things: there is a definite need for caution today. So go forth and gather your weapons just in case. However, don't go too far: be defensive, not aggressive. Otherwise those weapons could be used against you.
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. Use your fantasies for what they are: a roadmap to change your life for the better. Move forward and rejoin the world. Otherwise, your head may remain in the clouds.
Six of Wands.
After much work and struggle, victory arrives at last—and it's really sweet! Look to receive hard-won acknowledgement and honor from those around you. If you're not feeling it, find ways to use your highest courage and integrity to shift the odds. Right now, the odds are ever in your favor.
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.

Have you been burning your candle too much on both ends? If so, today is the perfect time to recalibrate and rejuvinate. Do your best to find balance between the spiritual and the physical, the intellectual and the emotional. For now anyway, moderation is your BFF.
Ace of Wands.
Sometimes life is about thinking and planning. Other times, it's about taking action to start new projects. Guess which agenda is in your best interest right now? Today marks the kick off to a major period of creativity in your life. Keep your eyes open for fresh inspiration and new opportunities. Grow, baby, grow!
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.
Wherever you live, the appearance of The Sun suggests it's summer in your heart right now. Today, drink in the expansive, life-affirming energy currently surrounding you. This is the perfect opportunity to give way to the powerful forces of creativity and inspiration. As well, children may figure prominantly in your life at this time.
