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 Swords.
Can't decide about an Important Life Issue? In the ongoing struggle between head and heart, the King of Swords says it's best to let the head win—for now. Take a step back to gain some distance. If you honestly don't know what to do, seek out an authority who won't sugarcoat their words to protect your feelings. What you need now is the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
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.
Queen of Pentacles.
Mama Earth is calling. She's asking you to take stock of ways to create a more harmonious home. Whether your answer involves nurturing your family, redecorating your bedroom, planting a garden, or taking a luxurious bubble bath, it's time to plain do it. Your challenge today: Find ways to increase your peace.

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.
Ten of Wands.
"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.
If you've been stuck revving your engine, today will mark a dramatic shift of gears. Get ready to move into the next phase of your life. Expect transitions to go smoothly, as if you are being pulled by the forces of fate and fortune. Not happening as you'd like? Look for opportunities to advance your agenda.
You may feel that all eyes are upon you today—and you'd be right. However, instead of going into a paranoid hidey-hole, use this awareness to figure how you're coming off to the powers-that-be. Is your public persona supporting your worldly goals? If not, today will remind you that sometimes the best move is to follow the rules. You'll have other opportunities to rock the boat.

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.
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, bon jour
to the new. The changes before you may feel painful to contemplate, but they're necessary. Your challenge is to allow the old to fertilize the new without fear.
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.
Feeling a bit Fifty Shades of Grey today? Is something tempting the dark side of your psyche? To quote the immortal Oscar Wilde, the only way to get rid of temptation is to give way to it. So go forth and have fun, but don't go too wild. Just be certain to remember who's in control: you. Otherwise, there might be hell to pay.
