3 of Cups
Celebrate with enthusiasm! Today is for fun and sharing. Friends are at the forefront, especially the ladies in your life.
Good times, good friends, good drink – it could be a pretty excellent day. Don’t be afraid to be happy and remember to let people know how much you like them.
Take delight in music, poetry, painting – this is a time of inspiration and creativity. Social interaction with others will be invigorating and fruitful.
Let yourself get carried away by laughter and joy. Seek out the beautiful within yourself and those around you. You won’t be disappointed if you do.
If you’re a fan of surrealist art and the occult and are in the Boca Raton, Florida area, you might want to check out the new show at the Boca Raton Museum of Art.
Curated by Andy Weislogel and Laurent Ferri, Surrealism and Magic examines the surrealists’ interests in magic, arcane learning, and indigenous spirituality.
It was inspired by the magic-themed library of Kurt Seligmann, and includes works by him (including his paintings of Tarot cards), as well as other artists like André Breton, Matta, Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Yves Tanquy, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Masson, Dorothea Tanning, Leonora Carrington, Wilfredo Lam, and Magritte.
The show runs until April 5th. If I were there, I’d go see it.
And check out the video below if you’d like to know a little bit more about Kurt Seligmann.

Prince of Wands
Charge forward with strength and vitality. This is a day of power, passion and growing energy. Your plan is in place and now’s the time to take it to the next step. Use your internal fire to take you where you’re tying to go.
You don’t need to wait till everything’s perfect to start moving. In fact, more often than not, things don’t start falling where they should until you start shifting them up and get some excitement going. Take a chance that you know what you’re doing and act on it. Believe in yourself and don’t be shy.
The Moon moves into Gemini today and will stay there until Saturday.
From a Tarot perspective, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Lovers’ Angel. She floats above the naked couple, blessing their sacred union.
The Moon in Gemini, or High Priestess dressed as the Lovers’ angel, can be an emotionally confusing time, one where internal conflicts arise in order to be reconciled.
But it can also be a time of clarity, honest communication and almost intuitive understanding about yourself and those around you.
Quiet faith teams up with commitment and the Angels approve of the whole thing.
Try to keep your emotions in line with your reason. Going too far either way could disturb a really nice balance.

10 of Cups
You feel full up with all the love around you. In fact, you might even be a little overwhelmed with how much you care and how loved you feel.
This is a happy time to be with your family or friends or whoever it is that makes up your social community.
You’re probably nearing the end of an important emotional phase. Taking the time now to recognize and be grateful for all you have will help prepare you for the beginning of the next stage of your journey.
Celebrate with your loved ones, remembering with joy and humour all the good and not so good days that brought you to where you are now.
Venus moved into Pisces today and stays there until February 20th.
If you look at this transit from a Tarot perspective, it’s like the Empress is dressed as the Moon. She’s all but disappeared in the night.
Venus in Pisces, or the Empress dressed as the Moon, is a good time to embrace your own unconscious depths.
Nurture your psychic energies through art, poetry or creative visualizations.
And try not to be afraid. Feelings that are usually expressed out loud might be less open than usual. That doesn’t mean they’re any less deep.
There’s as much beauty in the dark as there is in the light. It’s just not flashy. Dive into the mysteries and enjoy what you can never know for sure.

#21 – The Universe
Dance and enjoy! You deserve to celebrate after a long journey. A phase in your life is coming to a close – it’s big but not scary.
This is a good day to reflect on what’s been happening in your life over the last long while. Where were your successes and what would you rather leave behind? How did all the little stories turn into a whole big narrative?
Review, laugh and maybe even cry, but don’t carry old burdens with you going forward. Be free and open and willing to be vulnerable. You’ve done what you can. It’s time now to simply rejoice in your own little slice of the universe. You’ll have plenty of time to plan your next step tomorrow.
The Moon moves into Taurus today and stays there until Wednesday.
If you look at this transit through the eyes of the Tarot, it would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Hierophant. She’s sitting before two acolytes and sharing the secrets she usually guards.
The Moon in Taurus, or High Priestess in the Hierophant’s clothes, is a time of spiritual and emotional certitude.
There’s a sense that the truth can be explained, understood and incorporated into daily life. Rules can and should be followed.
Instead of trying to force others to recognize what you know to be certain, try using this time to simply share your emotional, intellectual and spiritual perceptions.
Celebrate the diversity of spirit in our world, while figuring out for yourself what rules, spiritual or otherwise, work best for you.

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.
