Queen of Cups
The energy today is full of nurturance and love. Let yourself give and receive. Share your feelings, your dreams and what it is that makes you human. Let your imagination run away with you (while holding on to reality if you can).
The Queen of Cups loves romance and laughter and beauty in all its forms. Take a leap into your emotional depths. Don’t be afraid, you won’t stay under too long. This Queen understands emotional limits – how to push them and how to pull them back gently without hurting anyone’s feelings.
Today would be a great day to enjoy the company of loved ones. Or call or write them – one way or another, be sure they know you care.
The Moon moves into Aries today and will stay there until Thursday.
Translating this transit into Tarot cards, it would be like the High Priestess is wearing the Emperor’s clothing. She’s in scarlet and armor and is ready for battle.
The Moon in Aries, or High Priestess in the clothing of the Emperor, is a time of intensified emotions. You might feel an increased desire to shape your own world.
Rather than sitting back in stillness, this transit encourages the loosening of emotional restrictions and the conscious expression of enthusiasm and/or passion.
It might be uncomfortable at first, but allow yourself to speak out loud. Take steps forward to let people know what you know and what you love.
Try to remain objective and open-minded while acting with determination and direction. It might sound impossible, but you can do both if you try.

#3 – The Empress
Creation and the celebration of the senses are highlighted today. Art, food, music – anything that inspires our physical and emotional selves will inspire you and be well worth the time.
Nurture yourself and others. It’ll probably be hard not to. Nurturance isn’t just a luxury. You need to maintain and even increase your strength in order to create what you’ve been working on. Eat delicious, healthy foods, surround yourself with beauty, take warm, aromatic baths . . . it’s all part of the Empress’ path to creation.
If you’ve been dealing with issues surrounding motherhood, women, or femininity in general, this would be a great day to take a closer look. There’s wonderful energy now to help you resolve issues you might have thought irresolvable.
Venus moves into Leo today and will stay there until October 8th.
From a Tarot perspective, it’s like the Empress is dressed in Strength’s clothing. She’s wearing white and playing with a lion.
Venus in Leo, or the Empress in Strength’s clothing, is a good time to turn your passion towards the nurturance of others.
It feels good right now to share. There’s power in devotion.
Emotions could run high, especially when it comes to questions of art, love and women in general. But that can be good, as long as you don’t force your feelings on others.
Try to avoid righteousness, even if it’s coming from a place of deep concern. Love should be flowing, not a tool of control.

Queen of Swords
The truth is an important commodity right now. Getting through the fog and cutting out that which no longer works is a priority.
You might be feeling a little hardcore, a little less sympathetic to sob stories and other tales of woe than usual. That’s all right. Sometimes it’s more important to be clear than to be sweet.
Get the job done and do it with the determination, diligence and discernment that you expect from others.
Keep in mind though that the bigger picture includes compassion. You need not be cruel or mean to be truthful and serious.
Not everyone is as tough-skinned as you are right now, so be aware of the potential effect your words might have.
The Moon moves into Pisces today and stays there until Monday.
Described in Tarot cards, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Moon. She’s lost her material body and has disappeared into the celestial body that usually rests at her feet.
The Moon in Pisces, or High Priestess dressed as the Moon, is a time of increased perception, ill-defined understanding and what might be described as night vision.
During this time you could find your dreams feel more real than your daylight hours and what’s not said is louder than what is.
Fears might grow like a boogieman under the bed, but if you just take a peek, they’re as likely to be dust bunnies as demons or ghosts.
Be still, aware and fearless. It might be dark outside, but if there was ever a time you can navigate the unknown, this is it. Listen, breathe, flow.

2 of Cups
It looks like it’ll be a sweet day. Open communication full of love and tenderness. This is a day to make sure you tell the people you love how much they mean to you.
If you’re starting a romantic relationship, or in one, it can be especially delicious. Be romantic and enjoy each other. It’s a time of beauty, peace and innocence, the reason we love love so much.
If you’re not feeling romantic, take the energy and let yourself simply express how much you care about those around you.
It will be most powerful if you tell them one-to-one. Let them know they’re special, it’ll make you feel great too.
And what a perfect card for my parents’ anniversary … Happy Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!!! xoxoxoxxo
Have you ever considered the water in the background of the RWS 2 of Pentacles card?
In the card, the main character, a man with an odd shaped hat juggling two discs, stands on dry land in front a very choppy ocean.
For me, this particular two most often represents taking care of the details. It suggests that someone is in a positive transition of sorts, and just needs to move patiently from one task to the next.
The water in the background however, hints that though the tasks might be small in nature, and the transition relatively minor, whatever’s going on does have a strong emotional element to it.
Water represents the emotions, and choppy water represents equally choppy, or shifting emotions.
When the 2 of Pentacles comes up in a reading, I typically recommend sticking with the basics and just getting the job done, while acknowledging that there might be some strong feelings behind the changes at hand.
It’s important to remember that though the emotions might be strong, the person involved is more than strong enough to deal with them.
Like the boats riding the waves in the image, you might bob up and down a bit, but if you keep doing what you need to do, you’ll definitely stay afloat.

Ace of Cups
Emotional renewal is the name of the game today. A new way of feeling about something and/or somebody is about to emerge. Perhaps you’re feeling it already – it’s like that first hint of spring or when a magnolia tree finally blossoms after a long cold winter.
Joy and hope are in the air and accessible to you. Throw away any gloom you’ve been dragging around and wake up to the inspiration of postive emotions. There’s a sense that anything can happen and it’s probably going to be good. Be receptive to the love that’s around you and give it back in kind.
