The Cynical Romantic
This card looks a bit misleading. This is largely because the Penny Dreadful deck is designed to be maximally creepy-looking and occulty, and most of its pip cards are designed along a single theme for each suit. So all the regular wand pips look all desolate and stuff, big poles sticking up out of the ground with skulls on them, but the actual wand cards mean all sorts of things, most of which are much more active and generally fiery than this.
In this case, today's card is the Eight of Wands, which is the "Speed" card. ALL SYSTEMS ARE GO. Today is a day for moving all sorts of stuff forward and an end to delays, which is good, since I'll be working on magazine stuff all day and we have had some delays. Hopefully this means at least one of the stories we're waiting on will come in today. This card can also signify things like that "efforts to promote yourself succeed" and new opportunities, so we'll see if that happens--it'd be quite nice if it did!
I can only assume most of this will be work-related since I do not have plans after work tonight, since I need to prepare for travel the rest of the weekend. But maybe something will come up last-minute. Or perhaps I'll stay home and have a really productive evening.
Updates on the last few days' readings: Yesterday, I wrote just over 1,000 words of fiction instead of just reading, which is pretty good for me to write at home by myself. I am notoriously bad at getting fiction writing done when it's just me and the Internet. The day before, I did actually move all my old 401(k)s, which I'd been putting off for forever, so max adulting points to me. I'm still not 100% sure about Ace of Swords day.
