The Magician (Reversed)
Knight of Cups
Eight of Batons
Today, one might awaken, wondering “Where did my brain go, and why wasn’t I invited?”. Assimilating new information may be difficult, and one might find oneself wondering which way to go.
Even with this, however, there’s a chance for someone to come into your life bearing news of a proposal, venture, or opportunity that seems perfect for you- if you act immediately.
Beware of allies encouraging you to move too quickly. The influences of the day encourage well-thought action. Remember that feeling that your brain might have taken a vacation? Beware of hasty and impulsive deals.

Friday comes, and rest follows.

Once again, the week’s cycled around to rest and relaxation, with important news in the offing from a level-headed messenger. Trust in your instincts to rest and recuperate as your weekend begins.
It’s no secret that bad news is released by official channels on Fridays. Listen carefully and thoughtfully to what you hear from others. Be aware of the agenda behind the ones releasing or spreading the information that you hear, and file it away accordingly.
Take caution – false starts are a distinct possibility, and plans may go awry. Preparation and looking at all angles before a project is launched can avert this, but do not let fact gathering turn into indecision.

Today, reversals are highlighted. Those projects that you might have, which are stuck or delayed, will be easier to move forward today. People around you might take a new interest in these, and financial issues which have been a bane have a chance to improve. Take action!
Be wary of your words, however. The element of disruption continues form yesterday in the form of domestic squabbles. Think before you speak, and communicate clearly.
Taking action to overcome vacillation will move you forward toward your goals. Do you have decisions waiting on facts? Gather the information that you need, and act! Be faithful to your goals and dreams.
Today’s a day that many may find reminds them of some point in their past. Childhood memories and other nostalgic things well up from some point in the past. Turn these over in your mind-what can they teach you now? Is it time to let them go and forge new patterns?
Do these things stand in between you and your goals?

Miracles are possible, if you follow your own path and don’t pay that much heed to the words of others.

Do not think that the world works this way normally. Today’s influences are unique, to say the least.
If you’re striving against overweening and constricting authority, and burdened with advice that is not helpful, today you may be able to shake it all off, push forward, and accomplish your goal. Spontaneity and flexibility are going to be necessary to get the job done.
Consider, though, whether or not you should do so. Taking your motivations and desires into account, as well as those of the people from whom you seek advice, is important. Watch for inaction, vacillation, anxiety and indecision.
Too much unconventional thinking can leave you vulnerable to being overly generous, when assets are better held until after the smoke clears.
Push forward, but with care!

Today, the hierarchy of Man has decided to stand on its head. Expect to see petty emotions and immaturity, as those who are not ready to rule prove the point through their actions. It’s a day of indecision and waiting, as those in power experience a peculiar weakness in the form of inaction or rash, arbitrary decisions without a basis in logic.
Important news will still be sent via messengers and envoys. Listen to the words of those you count as consistent, steady people, or trusted friends. Even strangers with good intentions bear listening to, despite the other influences swirling around you. While you might not be able to act on information you receive, consideration and contemplation is in order.
Life is in suspension. Goals and other plans which have been slow to move forward seem to become static. However, this stasis is not necessarily bad! There is an opportunity for respite before events began moving again. Changes are on the way, and new life will be breathed into the processes and activities around you. For now, all that can be done is to wait and observe.

Charge into the day, o warriors of the keyboard!
This Monday brings an impetus to dash ahead with swords drawn, guns blazing, and tear through the tasks on your list. Truly, you are the master of your actions. Take up your sword- or pen- and go forth to conquer!
Cooperation is possible, even likely, so take the current of partnership and engagement and fuse it with your drive to get things done. Love is in the air!
However, a current of discord also runs through the day. Be wary of excess, the “liquid lunch”, and a bit too much of the “Hair of the dog that bit you”.
Watch for impatience, hostility, and conflicting interests. Tempering the urge to charge over others is necessary to achieve the state of cooperation that’s possible today.

Beware of those who try to impose their will upon you and appear strong, but in reality are weak.

Bitter experiences result. Life becomes stationary, stagnant. Those who appear strong and authoritative are proven otherwise- authority becomes tyranny.
Abuse of power is a concern. Experiencing a lack of faith, some succumb to temptations and become petty and indifferent to the concerns of others.
Beware of bullies.

Today we have windy weather outside, but clear. It is time to rest.
Four of Swords
Six of Batons
Today, the need for rest, solitude and seclusion is strong. Relax and refreshment will come. Do not push yourself too hard today. The battle of the work week has ended.
In the temple within your soul are your ideals and ideas of what should be. Are you clinging to outdated ideals that no longer serve you? Do you fight to conform when that will not serve your purpose? Contemplation is in order, but balance is needed. Remember that action is needed and necessary, even while one is performing an examination of oneself.
Have you been striving and toiling toward goals? Victory lies ahead! Reap the reward of your effort. Realize your conquests and triumphs, for good news is on the way.

Greetings and Welcome to my blog! Today is Friday, January 23rd, and I will be posting today’s reading of the Daily Influences in a bit.
I aim to provide a glimpse of the influences surrounding a particular day, a general gist of what one may encounter throughout the course of the day.
With that, I present the following reading:
King of Batons (Reversed)
Five of Swords (Reversed)
Six of Cups (Reversed)
Today is a day filled with the uncompromising, dogmatic and exaggerated tendencies of severity and austerity. Outlooks seem uncertain, and the possibility of loss and misfortune can trap those who are not aware of their surroundings and the consequences of their actions. However, do not despair! The future, that which may come, and the opportunities that it brings, arrive shortly. New events, opportunities and vistas will unveil themselves. Plans may go awry, preparation and awareness will ensure that if they do, it is not catastrophic.
As always, the true course of your life lies with your actions and the decisions you make.
