Sunday, January 21st

 

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.

 

Three of Swords. Sometimes life is hard, and we're sad for good cause. Other times, we're plain oversensitive from past hurts; even if we were handed the keys to the kingdom, we'd still find cause to complain. Your challenge today: figure out which of these two scenarios have your name on them. Transform grief into understanding.

 

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.

 

Nine of Wands. You've been working so hard for so long that by now you should have something to show for it. And you don't. At this stage of the game, you're so darn exhausted it's tempting to just chuck it all. But you'd be wrong. Take a break to nurse your wounds before continuing on. You'll get there. Success is closer than you think.

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.

 

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.

 

Queen of Wands. Today the Queen of Wands will provide you with ample opportunities to show off how clever you can be particularly in the workplace. Time to bedazzle those movers and shakers high up on the food chain! Do what you can to gain their support for your long term goals. After all, big deeds require a big team of helpers.

 

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.

Eight of Swords. If you're feeling victimized by life these days, the Eight of Swords invites us to remove our blindfold. Today, take time to examine things as they are, not how they make you feel. Are your emotions entrapping you? Or someone else? Brainstorm ways you can free yourself.

 

Page of Pentacles. The Page of Pentacles offers a message about a message: get ready for communications offering information to push your business to the next level. Alternately, if you've been waiting for delayed payments, they should be showing up asap. Ka-ching!

 

The World. This is a great day for sending your fattest and juiciest projects out into the world. If things aren't going quite as planned, reach out to those who might be able to help. Alternately, look for experiences of grace from the great source that nourishes us all. You've reason to trust that the world can be a bountiful place.

 

The Star. If you've been looking for a sign that the universe supports your highest hopes, today will present you with a big gold star. Any feelings of insecurity and unworthiness are to be banished. To paraphrase Joseph Campbell, when you follow your bliss without fear, expect unexpected doors to appear. Hope is your friend. be distracted by petty concerns, a bigger lesson awaits.
