The Knight of Cups appeared yesterday to boost your courage and tell you to focus wholeheartedly on the creative project you’ve been thinking about. But it seems that you’re still finding yourself distracted by other ideas that feel exciting. The Eight of Wands, reversed, cautions you to avoid these temptations. You may have a tendency to try to juggle many different concepts and projects, with the result that few are accomplished in the way that you’d like. Distractibility is typical of the creative mind. New ideas are sparking constantly in your brain and it’s difficult not to be attracted to them, like a child romping through the forest trying to catch fireflies. But in order to achieve what you want, you need to discipline yourself. Compartmentalize your mind - keep the firefly-chasing separate from the laserlike focus and hard work. Remember the reading on July 27, with the reversed Nine of Cups: “Today, challenge yourself to face the reality here. Are you working diligently towards your goal or merely daydreaming?”
