Thursday, October 26th

 

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.
 

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.
 

Two of Swords. Your challenge today is to call a truce on a troublesome situation. Have faith it can be fixed—just not right now. Sometimes "good enough" may not be enough: it's putting a bandaid on a wound when stitches are called for. But sometimes "good enough" is the best we can do. Be at peace.
 

Knight of Pentacles. So, who's up for a little hard work today? You are! Keep your eyes open: don't be surprised to find golden opportunities coming your way, or to find ways to Make It Work. To take advantage of what fate brings, you may need to get your hands dirty in a good way. Roll up your sleeves and get to it. There's much to gain!

The Emperor. Itching to take a leadership role in your life? Or not so sure? Today's appearance of The Emperor suggests you're more than capable of using power to further your goals. If this prospect makes your knees quiver, seek out an authority figure who can help you figure out what needs to be done. Ready or not, this is the perfect time to lord it over your domain.
 

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!
 

The Hierophant. 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.
 

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.

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.
 

The Hermit. Do you know where you're going to? Today, allow yourself the necessity of taking a break from the hubbub to better contemplate the direction of your life. Go deep, go silent, go in solitude. At this time, your needs are not so focused on relationships with others, but rather on your relationship with yourself. Trust!
 

Four of Wands. What does home mean to you? Is it the physical structure where you live? Or is home best expressed in the presence of the people we most love? Whichever concept you prefer, today brings opportunities to put down roots where they're most desired. After all, there's no place like home.
 

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.
