Page of Wands. New ideas are exciting—and you're overflowing with them right now. However, don't let get too dazzled by what could be. Make sure to weigh your inspiration in the court of reality. Alternately, keep your eyes open for messages from an inexperienced young person who may be very passionate but inexperienced. All that glitters may not be gold.
 

Eight of Pentacles. Hi ho! Hi ho! It's off to work you go. Today, your focus is on nose to the grindstone stuff. Go forth, meet those deadlines. Just make sure you get paid your fair worth for all your labor. If you're not getting the material recognition you'd like, time to finetune your skill set for the marketplace.
 

Death. IIf you've been clinging onto something in your life that has outlived its usefulness, this is the perfect day to bid adieu to the old, bon jour to the new. The changes before you may feel painful to contemplate, but they're necessary. Your challenge is to allow the old to fertilize the new without fear.
 

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.

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 Chariot. If you've been stuck revving your engine, today will mark a dramatic shift of gears. Get ready to move into the next phase of your life. Expect transitions to go smoothly, as if you are being pulled by the forces of fate and fortune. Not happening as you'd like? Look for opportunities to advance your agenda.
 

High Priestess. Hungering for spiritual knowledge? Good news! Today is the perfect time to seek wisdom from deep sources. Take a course, read a book, find a teacher. Time to retreat and go deep.
 

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.

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.
 

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.
 

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.
 

Four of Cups. The first glass of wine warms the blood. The second glass turns the world pink and pretty. But by the fourth glass—well, it's hangover time. The takeaway from this nifty parable: Sometimes too much of a good thing isn't a good thing. Today, make moderation your friend.
