Seven of Wands
You may find yourself with your back against the wall today and feeling the need to defend your thoughts or your actions.
This shouldn’t be too much of a problem though as you look confident, strong and well able to head off any opposition that comes your way.
One thing you should watch out for though is that the attack, although it looks to come directly at you, may not necessarily be clear cut.
For instance you cannot see who or what the problem is in this image from the artist Beeme’s gorgeous contribution to the 78 Tarot — rather it seems to be several things coming at you at once with the desire to knock you off your feet.
Be wary of anyone around you who seems envious or jealous as they may take an underhanded attempt to knock your confidence and/or undermine you.
I’d like to see them try though as you look so confident and assertive here that anyone who thinks they have a chance of knocking you down may have taken on more than they realised.
There is a lot of self love around you which can be seen in the pink hues in the dress and if you need a speedy retreat you have one already mapped out within the water behind you which I must say is the only fertile piece of nature in this image. Don’t be afraid to jump in… you never know what you’ll find or where it will lead you.

Three of Cups
It’s time to eat, drink, dance and be merry. As Venus trines Uranus today, you may be celebrating something which not only involves you but also others.
There is much merriment to be found and growth from interacting with others. It may be the start of a new project or the beginnings of a new idea that has taken hold in your mind.
Either way it is a good idea to share it around with trusted friends and get their ideas on it.
The Three of Cups — this version from Svetlana Ava’s contribution to the beautiful 78 Tarot — represents liveliness and gaiety, communing with others and a light-hearted approach to friendship.
Notice the colorful fruits, berries and flowers scattered at the base of this card. And the women dancing around in merriment are just as alive and colorful. There are elements of playful reverie and joyful abandon that are shown in these young women taking part in the festivities.
Nothing about today looks “heavy” for you so if you have been through a hard time lately now is the time to leave it behind and look towards the future.Know that you have like-minded people around you to life you up and support you.
Your life is ready to take a new turn and within this you are filled with such happiness that nothing and no one will stand in your way. In fact if they did you would probably just laugh in their face.
It’s time to dabble in new experiences and taste new life experiences. It’s time to let go of the past and begin a brand new day. It’s time to be grateful and spread that gratitude around because as you do it will come back to you again and again.

Nine of Pentacles
This is a good day to count your blessings and to express gratitude for all of the wonderful things you’ve accomplished in your life.
The Nine of Pentacles speaks of shifting your attitude to one of gratitude. It speaks of attracting abundance and prosperity — not just with respect to money and material possessions, but also to your own sense of self-worth.
It’s about being grateful for all you’ve acquired and recognizing that you deserve it. It’s about developing a prosperity consciousness, knowing that the Universe offers up unlimited abundance to those who do.
The Nine of Pentacles — this version from Sarah B. Seiter’s contribution to the beautiful 78 Tarot — represents that intricate and fulfilling balance between expressing gratitude and achieving prosperity.
The woman in this card looks like she may be struggling to maintain balance. She holds the strings to Nine Pentacles — five hanging from one hand and four from the other. And these are not just any old pentacles, they’re glowing disks with butterflies and pentagrams etched into them.
She may be dealing with conflicting priorities or she may have a hard time maintaining the equilibrium in her life.
This is a key feature with the Nine of Pentacles. Balancing out the give and take in your life while still maintaining your priorities. Remember that whatever you put out there — whether it’s time, energy, money or yourself — as well as whatever you’re open to receiving, will all balance out and be replenished over time.

Eight of Wands
As we begin the New Year, Mars and Jupiter come together today in a powerful and dynamic opposition.
This is a high-energy aspect that ties in perfectly with the Eight of Wands.
You may have so much going on that it becomes difficult to figure out where to direct your attention. And you may have so much on your plate that you feel the need to rush as you scramble to get things accomplished.
The Eight of Wands is all about action, progress and momentum. It’s about getting things done and making things happen.
It may be as simple as ticking off all the little things on your to-do list, and it may be as significant as making great headway on an important project.
And with 2015 stretching out before you, it may be the monumental task of setting your intentions in motion in the form of New Years resolutions.
Although you may have expected to relax today (after a night of celebrations), you’re more likely to be busier than ever.
While it might feel to you like there just aren’t enough hours in the day, you could be surprised when it’s over at how much you really accomplished.
The Eight of Wands can also refer to travel. In that respect it relates to being literally and physically on the go. Are you planning a weekend getaway? Use this extra energy to make preparations for your trip.
Keep in mind though that the Mars / Jupiter transit can also be somewhat reckless. You want to stay alert and pay attention to your environment if you do end up making travel plans.

Aries: Five of Swords
If you rush into something too quickly this month you may find that it comes back to bite you.
Think of what your Achilles heel is and keep an eye on it because it may not only be you who is affected. Someone will have your back and you need to be aware that your actions do not only affect you but others also.
If you find yourself at odds within a situation do not come out fighting because if you do you may find you have done exactly what the other person wanted all along and as there is total balance in this image you don’t want to go rocking any boats to put yourself at a disadvantage.
It may be that you are on the verge of leaving a relationship, a job or simply have had enough of your life at present and want to throw it all in and start something new.
However, what you do not need is action that is not well thought out… rather you need a plan.
With an eclipse in your sign on the 8th and Mercury retrograde for a large part of the month it will be difficult to see the woods from the trees but if you can imagine glimpses of your wishes coming into reality then you get the idea of what you need to do and why it is so important to hold off for the time being.
