Page of Swords

Get ready for an unexpected message to cut through the confusion. Whatever you learn today will will enable to you make things a bit better all around, most especially for yourself. No news coming your way? Keep your eyes open: someone you might have considered out of the loop may surprise you by knowing more than you'd expect.

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.

The Empress

The presence of the Empress suggests there's something long-aborning within you. It may be something physical, or it may be metaphorical. Either way, it's been incubating in you for some time, and it is sooo ready to be out in the world. Go forth, and be like the earth. Bloom!

Three of Pentacles

What big project could you accomplish if you had others to help you? The Three of Pentacles invites us to get real—and to get ambitious. Make a list of constructive, pragmatic steps that will take you from Point A to Z. Your task today: find helpers whose talents will help your dreams take on concrete form. After all, we can't do it all alone.

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?

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.

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.

The Tower

If you've been building on shaky ground, today brings the opportunity to rebuild on solid foundation. It's never fun to start over, but it's better than giving up. Look for a new beginning after a painful ending that may have left you shaken, not stirred. Remember, the only way up is through.

King 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.

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.

Queen of Swords

As the saying goes, experience is the comb life gives us after we've lost our hair. However, the Queen of Swords possesses the Mad Skillz to use that comb on whatever life throws her way. Today, your task is to use past experience to fix what ails you now. Cut the wheat from the chaff.

Knight of Swords

What's been holding you back these days? Another person? A situation? A force of nature? Whatever it may be, this has got to end today—or else. Go forth and ask the right questions to gather the right information. Time to use your sword to cut through any confusion!
