Carpe is the second-person singular present active imperative of carpō "pick or pluck" used by Ovid to mean "enjoy, seize, use, make use of". Diem is the accusative case of the noun dies "day". A more literal translation of "carpe diem" would thus be "pluck the day [as it is ripe]"— i.e., enjoy the moment. In western education the tag is now often rendered as "take advantage of the opportunities arising in the day.
