Rune of the Day: Ansuz
Ansuz is the rune of communication and all that encompasses; new paths and opportunities, new understandings, closer connections, advice, even inspiration.
When Ansuz appears in a reading it is a sure sign that new information will be coming your way, information that you need to pay attention to. Frequently you hear something that opens your eyes to a new understanding with loved ones, or that gives you an idea of a new direction to focus your own energies on.
Ansuz also represents communication with, and connection with the Divine. Spending some extra time meditating today may really help you receive the messages you have been hoping for!
Tarot Card of the Day: 4 of Swords
The 4 of Swords represents rest, solitude, replenishment. Frequently this is a time of recuperation after illness or after a trying time. Sometimes, its just that breathing space you need after a failed relationship or project before you're ready to try again.
Almost always though, the 4 of Swords appearing means you need to take some time for yourself, to spend some downtime just chilling, so to speak. This downtime often comes after a setback or a difficult time in your life. Take the time to lick your wounds if you need to, or to think about where you want to go from here.
As with Ansuz above, possibly spend some time meditating, clearing your mind, and listening to the messages you are meant to hear!
