In astrology news, today is what’s known as the Lion’s Gate, which is acknowledged every August 8 (8-8). There is a lot of information about it.

The Ace of Cups energy can help us make that transformation with love.

There could be idle talk and gossip circulating today , or someone could be trying to pry into your business. Also, make sure you cover yourself so that if you are falsely accused of something, you have the proof to defend yourself.
By the same token, don’t try to get away with anything underhanded. You are likely to get caught in a lie. Like the old adage says, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.
Bottom line: Take everything you hear today with a grain of salt. You will be better able to get to the truth of it some other day.
Today’s card if the Queen of Pentacles. The focus is on your home, comfort, and being in control of your domain. So spruce up your living quarters, decorate, or rearrange the furniture. Did you ever get a chance to do any spring cleaning? That’s ok. Do a little summer cleaning.

Hi, all. Today’s card is Death, which is all about endings—as well as beginnings. Circumstances and attitudes that no longer serve your higher good will be fading out of the picture. Some examples are the end of a job (quitting, firing, retirement), the end of a relationship, or a decision to halt production on a project that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.
But whether this is a sad experience or not depends on your attitude. If you were blindsided and didn’t see the changes coming, this may feel like an unwelcome change. But sometimes things happen gradually and it gets to the point where enough is enough. It simply could be a situation that has come to its natural conclusion.
Sometimes the Death card is a sign that you are the one who should let go, that you should move on because there is nothing more to be gained from the current situation. But sometimes this card shows that the decision is out of your hands. Something is leaving your life and you don’t have a say in it. Either way, the best way to handle the situation is to grieve the loss if you must but don’t resist the leaving. Holding on would be a waste of time.
Don’t forget that story is not over. The ending indicated here is making a way for a new beginning. Eventually, you will see, if you haven’t already, that this so-called death can be a transformation into something much better.
Today we are have the Sun card, which is one of the happiest cards in the Tarot deck. The message of the Sun card is to look at the world with optimism knowing you are protected and free to do so. Your Highest Guidance is shining down on you, giving you warmth and clarity.
This energy may come as a relief considering the intensity you may have been feeling lately. The focus was on doing and performing, Now you can concentrate on simply being. It’s likely that you learned some important lessons these last few days. Now you can clearly see what you have accomplished.
But at the same time, don’t just let the positive energy beam down on you. Be your own source of sunshine by developing a positive attitude.
How to do this? Tap into your inner child. See the world as a child does—with optimism, not pessimism. Express yourself like a child does, with pure honesty, not with sarcasm.
So when you see a half cup of water, think of the container as being half full instead of half empty. When someone walks into the room, don’t say, “Look what the cat dragged in.” Instead, say, “Hi! Nice to see you.”
And don’t stop there. Let this be the first day of you making positivity a lifelong habit.
Today’s card, the Lovers, highlights the fact that we are all connected to each other and each of us is connected to the guiding force of the Universe. To keep the connection strong, we have a responsibility to uphold our end of the deal—which is to live out loud from our hearts, be true to who we are, and to love. Today’s message flows very nicely from yesterday’s message, which suggested that we act on our passions.
Understand that the Lovers card is not just about the relationship you have with one particular person. It’s about how your relate to every person you come in contact with. You owe it to everyone you meet—and to yourself—to be authentic and real. The Universe is supportive of that.
In fact, the love you give yourself is most important of all. And the best way to love yourself is to have integrity and stand in your own truth. Believe in yourself and don’t let distractions take you off your path.
In light of world events, today’s message is especially appropriate. Many of us are profoundly affected by the unrelenting violence all around us, whether it be from war, threats of war, and terrorism—domestic or otherwise. At our lowest moments, it may seem that it is beyond our scope as individuals to create change.
However, take a good look at the Lovers card, particularly at the deep blue sky and the radiant light above it shining down from the Universe. We—all of us—help generate that light with the power of our precious love.
Have a great day.
