Eight of Wands. If life has felt sluggish lately, all that's going to change tout de suite. Important communications will be shooting your way like a bolt out of the blue: unexpected telephone calls, surprise letters, and e-mails. All these will serve to release you from the uncertainties dogging you. Alternately, if your phone isn't ringing as you'd like, perhaps it's time to let your fingers do the walking. Shift from the local road to the express lane.
 

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.
 

The Devil. Feeling a bit Fifty Shades of Grey today? Is something tempting the dark side of your psyche? To quote the immortal Oscar Wilde, the only way to get rid of temptation is to give way to it. So go forth and have fun, but don't go too wild. Just be certain to remember who's in control: you. Otherwise, there might be hell to pay.
 

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.

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.
 

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!
 

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.
 

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.

Six of Wands. After much work and struggle, victory arrives at last—and it's really sweet! Look to receive hard-won acknowledgement and honor from those around you. If you're not feeling it, find ways to use your highest courage and integrity to shift the odds. Right now, the odds are ever in your favor.
 

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!
 

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!
 

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.
