Tuesday, December 12th

 

King of Cups. When the King of Cups appears, he's telling us to get real with our artistic dreams: what do you really *really* want? If there was ever a time to combine inspiration with the realities of the marketplace, today is it. Alternately, the King of Cups can symbolize someone who represents the highest balance of artistic integrity and worldly influence. They've made their way in the world. So can you. What can they teach you?

 

Knight of Wands. Today, the Knight of Wands invites you to trot forward into whatever new schemes you've been mulling. Don't delay to take initiative. Alternately, the Knight of Wands can signify someone who inspires like a jolt of electricity from the great beyond. Use their energy to make your move.

 

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.

 

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!

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.

 

Three of Cups. Get ready to get happy! Today is going to be one for the record books. Whether the goodness coming your way is a family reunion, a gathering between friends, or just some welcome news, drink deeply of the wine of satisfaction. Celebrate!

 

Three of Wands. If you've been waiting impatiently to hear back from the world about a pet project, today should bring good news. Time to move onto the next stage of development! Nothing cooking in your life? Don't be afraid to take action with clear intent. The portents are positive.

 

Temperance. Have you been burning your candle too much on both ends? If so, today is the perfect time to recalibrate and rejuvinate. Do your best to find balance between the spiritual and the physical, the intellectual and the emotional. For now anyway, moderation is your BFF.

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.

 

Queen of Cups. The Queen of Cups wants you to know that if there was ever a time to get all swoony over art, beauty, and love, that time is now. So, what are you waiting for? Go forth and spread the joy. Even better: find ways to nurture your nearest and dearest so they'll be swooning over you.

 

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.

 

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.
