Yesterday’s card was the Wheel of Fortune, which promised that you were entering a period of good luck, and encouraged you to take advantage of this fortunate hour to move forward with your big plans. But there’s a catch. The Seven of Cups comes up today to call attention to the fact that you must be mindful when it comes to deciding on what your big plans will be. You may have a tendency to juggle too many projects at once, never really finishing any of them. Or you may be focusing on one major project, but have a hard time moving from the concept/visualization phase to the action phase, where you roll up your sleeves and plunge into the real work! It could be that you love playing around with different ideas, but get bored or distracted when it comes to putting the necessary energy into them to make them happen. This card might also suggest a tendency to be stuck in a dream world, confused by illusions. This needs to be sorted out before you can accomplish anything. And this must be done soon, to take advantage of the window of opportunity indicated by the Wheel of Fortune. So take the time now to carefully examine your goals and ambitions. Write them down. Think about which of them you feel devoted to and are willing to be “married” to until completion. Consider, too, if you’re seeing them clearly - if you truly understand what’s involved, and what your final goal will actually mean to you. Avoid wishful thinking and be realistic. It’s hard to challenge your dearly-held dreams, but it’s necessary in order for you to get to the next level.
