Thursday, December 14th

 

Ace of Wands. Sometimes life is about thinking and planning. Other times, it's about taking action to start new projects. Guess which agenda is in your best interest right now? Today marks the kick off to a major period of creativity in your life. Keep your eyes open for fresh inspiration and new opportunities. Grow, baby, grow!

 

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.

 

Ace of Cups. Hey, your cup runneth over! Today marks the beginning of a new cycle ripe with potential and happiness. Keep your eyes open for start of a new love or friendship that will prove to be especially important and nurturing. Not feeling it? Take a look inside instead: chances are you're gonna find some serious inspiration incubating.

 

Six of Swords. Things aren't as bad as they seem. Really. Today, keep your eyes open for information to help you move beyond your current limitations. Is there a point of view you haven't considered? Or a class or book that might help you learn new skills? Alternately, a quick trip from home may help you gain some distance from whatever's been troubling you. Time to see the forest for the trees.

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.

 

Eight of Cups. Have itchy feet? A stomach that's never quite satisfied with the plate set before you? That's understandable: today, you're craving more authenticity in your life -- whether that take the form of more satisfying relationships, more meaningful employment, or just finding a nearest and dearest to plain understand you as you really are, not what want you to be. You're ready to move onto a more substantive life.

 

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.

 

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!

Six of Pentacles. As the saying goes, sharing is caring. Today, find a way to share your goodness with the world. Whether this means donating resources to your favorite non-profit, or offering your talents to others, it's all the same: the cycle of life demands we give just as we've received. If you're concerned about having your generosity appreciated, rest assured. Whatever you put out will be gratefully received.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Seven of Swords. Feeling vulnerable? Rest assured you're not imagining things: there is a definite need for caution today. So go forth and gather your weapons just in case. However, don't go too far: be defensive, not aggressive. Otherwise those weapons could be used against you.
