Rune of the Day: Eolh (Reversed)

Eolh Reversed is a rune of sacrifice for no gain, of failure, sometimes of ill health. Generally this is seen as a negative rune, or perhaps a rune of warning. So today is probably a very bad day to play the lottery!! lol

As a rune of caution or warning it must be heeded.  When this rune appears, make sure you don't have all your eggs in one basket, that you aren't counting on one particular thing to work.  Have a back-up plan in case things don't work out as you want.   Make sure to take care of your health, take it easy if you're feeling run down, go to the doctor if you really don't feel well at all. 

So very little of our lives is set in granite, we can almost always change potential outcomes if we change what we are doing. This rune, when reversed, very clearly says you need to change something you are doing. Although things still may not work out as you would like, if you have made some changes, then these setbacks or failures may open up new opportunities to you.  Perhaps just by having another alternative you'll have found a better path to take.

Tarot Card of the Day: Page of Pentacles (Reversed)


The Page of Pentacles Reversed generally represents a more unrealistic person, someone who is more of a dreamer than a realist. Its also usually someone unwilling to accept facts that don't fit their own preconceived ideas, someone very closed-minded. 

When this card appears it may be a warning that you will have to deal with someone like this today, someone who probably is not going to listen to anything that they don't agree with.  That would make today a day to be creative, to find a way to get this person to at least acknowledge another point of view or possibility.

Conversely, this card may be telling you that you need to take another look at things, possibly change your expectations of a given situation.  Plan for a different outcome than what you expect, try to look at something from the point of view of the other person in the situation and with their expectations.

I find it very interesting that both the rune and tarot card of the day are saying to rethink one's beliefs, to change one's expectations.  Although both are saying that things probably aren't going to be what you're hoping for, that doesn't necessarily mean things have to end in disaster.  

Sometimes, from the ashes of great failure, comes great success like the phoenix rising again.  But before that success can be found, one must be open to it, and be willing to look beyond the failure.  This is always easier to do if you don't have everything riding on one particular outcome.  Be open to other outcomes today, find something positive in them, and you can turn a seeming failure into a huge success.
