Monday, December 11th

 

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.

 

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 Swords. Your life of late has left you feeling a bit battered, but today marks the end of a difficult situation. From here, things can only get better. Best of all, you won't need go through this experience again: you've gained plenty of wisdom from your struggles. For extra karma points, share all you've learned with someone so they can avoid treading the same rocky road.

 

The Lovers. Ooooh la la! The Lovers invites you to look for a renewed awareness of the nature of passionate love. How can you best experience it? You may find love in another person. Or you may find it through contemplating the world's bounty. Better yet, find it in yourself: take the time to be your own best friend. After all, if you don't love yourself, who will?

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 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.

 

Four of Swords. Sometimes we're meant to forge ahead despite signs to the contrary. Other times, not so much. The appearance of the Four of Swords suggests that it's the latter, not the former, for you today. Right now, it's imperative for you to heal from whatever's been bothering your body and soul. Your mission: find balance by detaching from the everyday world.

 

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.

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.

 

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.

 

Nine of Pentacles. The Nine of Pentacles sends the message that sometimes our most sacred duty is to take pleasure in the physical world. After all, what's the point of working hard if you can't enjoy the fruits of your labors? Smell the roses, make love, and be joyful.

 

Page of Cups. There's an important message waiting for you, but it's not going to arrive as you'd expect. Today, keep your eyes open for unexpected flashes of intuition and inspiring dreams. Not happening? Give yourself permission to doodle or freewrite without expectations. See what dreams may come in artistic form.
