Wednesday, October 25th

 

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!
 

Death. If 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.
 

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.
 

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.

Two of Swords. Your challenge today is to call a truce on a troublesome situation. Have faith it can be fixed—just not right now. Sometimes "good enough" may not be enough: it's putting a bandaid on a wound when stitches are called for. But sometimes "good enough" is the best we can do. Be at peace.
 

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.
 

Ace of Swords. What would you learn if you had the druthers? The appearance of the Ace of Swords suggests the time is nigh for a new cycle of intellectual growth. After all, the more you know, the more you grow. Alternately, if you've been ruminating on a situation for too long, use this energy to suss out the truth. Cut to the chase!
 

Nine of Pentacles. The Nine of Pentacles sends the message that sometimes our most sacred duty is to take pleasure in the physical world. After all, what's the point of working hard if you can't enjoy the fruits of your labors? Smell the roses, make love, and be joyful.

Knight of Pentacles. So, who's up for a little hard work today? You are! Keep your eyes open: don't be surprised to find golden opportunities coming your way, or to find ways to Make It Work. To take advantage of what fate brings, you may need to get your hands dirty in a good way. Roll up your sleeves and get to it. There's much to gain!
 

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.
 

The Hanged Man. You may be wanting to move forward, but life is throwing a big red light your way. Instead of gunning your engine, give into the portents of the time. Yes, it's frustrating, but sometimes surrendering to the powers-that-be is the best road to take. Trust us, there's a lesson here somewhere. Figure it out.
 

Five of Wands. Hey, who's attacking you? It's all their fault, isn't it? Or could it be that you're responsible for fanning the flames of dissention? Perhaps there's something you've chosen to ignore. Your lesson today: just because you're invited to a melee doesn't mean you have to accept. If you refuse to be distracted by petty concerns, a bigger lesson awaits. Choose to be the No Drama Mama.
