Step 1: Play the Vine and tap it to stop on a tarot card.

Step 2: Look for your card below, and see what it means for your day ahead!

Major Arcana:

0 - The Fool: Focus on living in the present. Do not worry about the outcome of the various decisions you've put in place; it's too early to know what will happen.

1 - The Magician: Take hold of the myriad opportunities that are presenting themselves to you, and put yourself at center stage.

2 - The High Priestess: Let go of your obedience to old ways of thinking and doing things. Give your inner eye the chance to see yourself/your life for what they are.

3 - The Empress: Take responsibility for yourself, and don't blame others — eradicate bad and negative influencers from your life.

4 - The Emperor: Somewhere inside you there's a pioneer ready to strike out on your own. The time has come.

5 - The Hierophant: Embrace vulnerability — spill that secret you've been wanting to share, and be receptive to what others have to say about it.

6 - The Lovers: A reminder to love yourself most fully, and to let your love for others flow naturally from that self-fulfillment.

7 - The Chariot: Reckon with what it is you really want, and then figure out what you need to get it. You are already on a path, but it's never too late to change direction.

8 - Strength: Recognize your strengths AND your weaknesses, and concentrating on utilizing your strength in this present moment.

9 - The Hermit: Lift your anchor and throw unnecessary weight overboard — it is time to move forward into the light.

10 - Wheel of Fortune: What may seem a series of great "coincidences" is anything but — make note of these moments of connection.

11 - Justice: A reminder that judgments are not the same thing as experiences — consider what everyone's needs really are; do not assume you know.

12 - The Hanged Man: This is the end of some road — surrender yourself to this moment of change and new beginning.

13 - Death: A symbolic transition, and an opportunity to assess what can be harvested and what rotting fruit is better cast away.

14 - Temperance: A moment to grasp and accept the many contradictions in you life, and know that they will ultimately help you.

15 - The Devil: Bringing light to a place of darkness, and knowing that you have a real chance to eradicate long-buried demons.

16 - The Tower: You have a welling desire to take some plunge and act dramatically, but you should consider how you might reduce risks before the leap.

17 - The Star: Abolish false modesty and inhibition, and in so doing allow yourself to blossom.

18 - The Moon: You are at the brink of transformation, moving from longing and desiring to actually achieving and earning.

19 - The Sun: Take an innocent, child-like joy in the pleasure of merely existing. Don't let small roadblocks get you down.

20 - Judgement: Time to draw a line in the sand. Either reconcile and move together across it, or move on ahead alone.

21 - The World: Increasing awareness and readiness to step into the role/position for which you have worked so hard.


Queen of Wands: A personal game of cat and mouse between your desires and your actions — kill the mouse already! Be brave.

King of Wands: Challenges and temptations may cause you to feel hesitant, but now is the time to leap through the fire and go for what you want.

Knight of Wands: Sometimes you can only find out what you want after you just DO the thing you're wondering about.

Page of Wands: A moment of reflection on that which has brought you true joy. What do you want to do to bring you closer to these feelings?

Ace of Wands: The seed of a new relationship — whether romantic, platonic, or business — has been planted. Allow it to grow.

2 of Wands: Give your decision some time to mature and settle before you act upon it — and then, put everything you have behind it.

3 of Wands: Have a little patience, for the correct solution to your current mess of concerns — what you want vs. what is expected of you, what you fear and hope for, etc. — is on the horizon.

4 of Wands: You need to dig deeper, and plant stronger roots, to solve your current issues. Let go of unattainable expectations.

5 of Wands: Give yourself some space and time with which to "play." Step back from the competition and ask if you even really want the prize.

6 of Wands: Is there some leadership role or new responsibility you've been considering taking on? You should. Come out of the shell.

7 of Wands: Take a breath and slow down. Unhurried effort will get you where you're going, too — and perhaps more successfully.

8 of Wands: Give yourself a second to accept the many changes you're going through. With this acceptance will come new energy.

9 of Wands: Acknowledge your fears and then let them go. The only way they can hurt you is if you let them prevent you from seeking your true wish.

10 of Wands: Give the issue or person on your mind your undivided attention, that you might see them more clearly.


Queen of Cups: Seek a body of water (or an otherwise tranquil place) and meditate. Open your heart and mind.

King of Cups: What are all these yearnings you have? Sharpen your instincts, listen closely to your hunches, and question your temptations.

Knight of Cups: Don't be cynical or superstitious now — allow yourself to dream, and hope, and feel fully.

Page of Cups: Say what's been on your mind (or in your heart). Nothing is going to be any different until you do.

Ace of Cups: True love is on the horizon. You know what (or who) it is you want, so open yourself up to let it happen.

2 of Cups: Today you need to think about how to deal with strong emotions, as they are inevitable, and will not disappear. Instead, manage them.

3 of Cups: Don't avoid saying what you want to say because you think someone will react too emotionally. It will go better than you think.

4 of Cups: Consider your feelings and then take a break from them. Don't wear yourself looking for the answer; your gut is speaking plainly already.

5 of Cups: A new beginning, for which you have waited a long time, is finally here. Don't run in fear.

6 of Cups: A recognition that you may no longer be a child, but it is still OK (and good) to let yourself feel like one sometimes.

7 of Cups: You may feel overwhelmed by possibilities — your task now is to ask which of these brings you the most excitement and joy.

8 of Cups: A reminder that there is a time for everything. Each little step and stumbling block along the way there is important.

9 of Cups: Of all the people asking things of and from you, the most important one you can say "yes" to is yourself.

10 of Cups: Do not be afraid of powerful emotions and big dreams and sometimes-necessary conflict.


Queen of Swords: Like the queen, hold yourself upright — let go of fears and open yourself up to love.

King of Swords: Don't be tempted by cold manipulation or willful indifference. Stay with what moves you genuinely.

Knight of Swords: Don't fall back on supposed "rules" or guidelines as an excuse for not doing what you need and want to do.

Page of Swords: Be innovative and unconventional in your thinking, and don't fall for anyone's "shortcut."

Ace of Swords: A day of epiphanies big and small — embrace this moment of awareness and use it to heal old wounds.

2 of Swords: Look inside yourself — use the mind's eye — and go beyond the obvious solutions. Use your imagination.

3 of Swords: You can't heal your wounds without proper treatment. Take care of yourself today.

4 of Swords: Give yourself a break. Take a day off soon, if you can. You have a lot going on and you need some time to process.

5 of Swords: There is significance in triumph, but also in loss and disaster — use your intellect to help you find what that is.

6 of Swords: You're likely to have a difference of opinion today. Try to get to the bottom of it with honesty and graciousness.

7 of Swords: A reminder that just because something's always been done a certain way doesn't mean that way is right or best.

8 of Swords: The beginning of a transformation — a move to hole yourself away and get ready for a change.

9 of Swords: You are cocooned away like a caterpillar, waiting to emerge as a butterfly. In this time of separation, strengthen your patience and trust.

10 of Swords: A halt to old ways, and a brand new path forward. You are like the newly born butterfly, ready to spread its wings.


Queen of Pentacles: Do what you have to do so that you can do what you want to do. This is the way to success.

King of Pentacles: You need to get a better handle on your finances. Cover the basics, and then consider what you can do with any leftovers.

Knight of Pentacles: Remember that nothing is every truly wasted. Forgive yourself for making mistakes.

Page of Pentacles: Today is the perfect day for an adventure. Head outside with $20 and a map and see what you can find.

3 of Pentacles: Everyone has various "peaks" or mountains to climb. In order to reach yours, ask what the world wants from you.

4 of Pentacles: It's OK to turn down that party or social outing and stay in. Take some time for yourself and your needs.

5 of Pentacles: When you work alone, you can accomplish a great deal, but when you work with others, your efforts are multiplied.

6 of Pentacles: When you think about ways to make things better for people you care about, you'll often find you're making things better for yourself, too.

7 of Pentacles: Consider any recent hardships or stumbling blocks you have faced, and look there for signs as to the right course of action.

8 of Pentacles: Don't be a pawn in someone else's game. Do what's important to YOU, and trust in your own self-sufficiency.

9 of Pentacles: Stop being so restless and withdrawn! Sit down, and sit still, and take a moment to really look around you.

10 of Pentacles: Make an effort to work with your surroundings and the people in them, rather than daydreaming about distant futures.
