Six of Pentacles
Trick or Treat! Today’s card — the Six of Pentacles from the whimsical Housewives Tarot — is all about getting in the spirit of giving, and what better way to do that than to hand out candy to the hoards of costumed characters who show up at your door?
This card is all about the exchange of energy — which often comes in the form of gifts or tangible goods. But whether it refers to giving or receiving is a matter of perspective.
Look at the little devil in this card. Is he handing out cookies and candy to the little tricksters who show up at his door? Or is he standing outside and reaching into someone else’s house for goodies of his own?
And think about the whole concept of Trick-or-Treating, and how it’s just as much fun to answer your door with a big bowl of candy as it is to be standing out there on the stoop with your flashlight and pillowcase.
This is attitude you want to hold onto today: that there is always enough for everyone and that prosperity and abundance can be continuously replenished.
An important feature of the Six of Pentacles is also gratitude. Noticing the small miracles and blessings that surround you as well as the bigger ones. And honoring those who’ve helped you along the way.
Today is a day for both giving and receiving. It doesn’t have to be money or material things; it can be as simple as a smile, a hug, a pat on the back or a moment of your time. Be conscious of all that you receive as well, and don’t forget to say thanks!

Page of Cups:
Today is a day for spreading the love and tending to those who are nearest and dearest to you with tender loving care.
The Page of Cups is sensitive, loving, gentle and kind. He’s nurturing and very compassionate — and more than willing to express his feelings of love and affection for others.
In this version of the card — from the Housewives Tarot — the Page of Cups is seen as a young boy watering a group of sunflowers with three faces in their centers. I can’t tell if these are family members or movie stars (is it Burgess Meredith, Red Skelton and Fred Astaire? I doubt it, but this is who they look like to me).
The flowers are planted in heart-shaped vases and the boy looks positively gleeful as he waters them. The flowers are thriving and lifting their sunny faces up toward him to soak it all in.
The Page of Cups may be someone in your life — a young child or someone with childlike qualities, gentleness, sweetness and idealism. Or it may be a set of qualities that you’re being called on to embrace. I love how this card focuses less on romantic love and more on tending to others. Seeing how love spreads and is responded to by others.
Is there someone in your life that needs a little nurturing today in order to lift their spirits or reach their full potential? Perhaps you’re in need of a bit of tender loving care yourself. The Page of Cups is here to remind you that when you give even a little you get a whole lot back in return, so take a few minutes today to see what you can do to gladden the hearts of others.

Page of Swords:
There’s a lot on your mind today and a lot of things to do.
For the most part you are pretty happy just getting on with everything but there seems to be such an abundance of chores that you may need to watch that you don’t miss something…
Especially running with scissors as this can imply that if you do miss something it can come back to hurt you later or imminently.
Your mood is happy and upbeat and as you go about your day there is a sense of childlike fascination in all that you do and perhaps a bit of manic energy in which you do it in.
This is not the day for cutting ties with anything or anyone in your life without giving it further thought. If you rush in and act without thinking something through then you may find out something else further down the line that you didn’t know at this time which brings to mind the saying “act in haste… repent in leisure.”
For this is exactly what you will be faced with, namely, the hard, cold fact that you could’ve avoided the impulsive actions and/or words you used.
You don’t want to get your hands dirty and yet at the same time you can’t help leaving your palm marks everywhere you go as if you are marking your territory out in some haphazard way.
