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.

 

Nine of Cups. What do you most wish for? Love? Prosperity? Emotional satisfaction? Whatever it is, today may bring it to you in a truly harmonious way. Just be certain to take the time to wallow in the sheer satisfaction of it all. Be grateful and share.

 

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.

 

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 Cups. Sometimes artistic inspiration comes in like the calvary on a horse. Other times, it arrives on little cat's feet. In either case, listen for offers that allow you to use your talents to their fullest. Alternately, the Knight of Cups may symbolize a talented young man who can push you toward great feats of love and art. Drink deeply!

 

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.

 

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.

 

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 Moon. Feeling a bit emotional? Having vivid dreams? These are all signs that you need to take a step back today to mother your inner child. After all, if you don't take care of yourself, who will? Alternately, take note of any flashes of intuition that may come your way. The wisdom you receive may not be logical, but it will be helpful.

 

Wheel of Fortune. Sometimes we're in the driver's seat. Other times ... not so much. Today, the Wheel of Fortune suggests that the forces of Chance are guiding your car, not you. This loss of control can lead to feelings of anxiety and fear. Your challenge: trust in the ultimate generosity of the universe. In the long run, it's all meant to be—even it seems capricious right now.

 

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!

 

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.
