Monday, October 23rd

 

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.
 

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.
 

Ten of Cups. Can you have too much of good thing? We think not. Your lesson today is to take it all in—and we do mean all: personal happiness, satisfying love relationships, family harmony, and much more. Just remember to say thank you and share.
 

Ten of Pentacles. What would make you feel truly wealthy in this material world: A comfortable home? A fat bank account? A devoted family to share these with? If you've been struggling of late attaining these most human of necessities, the Ten of Pentacles suggests you won't be for long. Today, look for ways to gather the harvest surrounding you. Like grapes ripening in the autumn sun, your goals are ripe for the plucking.

Knight of Pentacles. So, who's up for a little hard work today? You are! Keep your eyes open: don't be surprised to find golden opportunities coming your way, or to find ways to Make It Work. To take advantage of what fate brings, you may need to get your hands dirty in a good way. Roll up your sleeves and get to it. There's much to gain!
 

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.
 

Justice. That long term situation that's been weighing you down? You'll be relieved to know that today things should finally come to a head. When it does, use your head—tip the scales in your favor by arguing your case using external logic, rather than inner emotion. If you're fretting that the world is an unfair place, worry not. Reasonable ears will hear and justice will be done.
 

Ace of Pentacles. Today marks the start of a new cycle that will be particularly supportive of material prosperity in all its forms. Whether you've been thinking about starting a business, looking for a new home, or beyond, this is the perfect time to get cracking. Embrace the bounty of the world.

Page of Wands. New ideas are exciting—and you're overflowing with them right now. However, don't let get too dazzled by what could be. Make sure to weigh your inspiration in the court of reality. Alternately, keep your eyes open for messages from an inexperienced young person who may be very passionate but inexperienced. All that glitters may not be gold.
 

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?
 

The Sun. 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.
 

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.
