Wednesday, December 13th

 

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.

 

Five of Swords. Feeling paranoid? Sometimes discomfort with a situation is for a good reason. No one would blame you right now for arming yourself in case of attack. However, be careful not to go looking for trouble where none is to be found. Your challenge today: keep your eyes open but your arms down.

 

Ten of Wands. "So close, yet so far away!" is your message for the day. The good news: a much labored over project is just about ready to be shared with the world. The bad news: the amount of work remaining feels plain overwhelming. At this stage of the game, when you're so plumb tired, it's easy to throw up one's hands and walk away. However, that's no solution. Buckle down and get it done.

 

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.

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.

 

Page of Cups. There's an important message waiting for you, but it's not going to arrive as you'd expect. Today, keep your eyes open for unexpected flashes of intuition and inspiring dreams. Not happening? Give yourself permission to doodle or freewrite without expectations. See what dreams may come in artistic form.

 

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!

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.
