The Rune of the Day: Nied
Nied is a rune of delay, of obstacles and distress. These challenges may be of our own making, or those that life gives us to help us grow. And that is the key to understanding Nied. Nied appears when we need to learn patience and acceptance, or something else particular to that certain situation.
The key to overcoming challenges is accepting them and dealing with them in a constructive manner instead of railing against them. Frequently, just making the best of a bad situation instead of stressing out, will show whatever obstacle you're facing to be much less important than you may have originally thought.
When Nied appears it is necessary to stay focused on reality, and to not let one's imagination and distress rule the day. Try imagining the absolute worst case scenario and how you would handle that-then realize that though unpleasant, the obstacles represented by Nied can indeed be handled, hopefully with some grace and a smile.
Tarot Card of the Day: Queen of Pentacles (Reversed)
The Queen of Pentacles Reversed represents a false gain, a false feeling of financial security. It may also represent someone who does not have your best interests at heart, even though they seem to. This is a card of contradictions between what seems to be and what is.
Likewise, this card can represent a person who is conflicted, one who is trying to look out for you, but who has other interests also; interests that may be at odds with your own. When the Queen of Pentacles appears reversed, it is always a good idea to make sure your chickens have actually hatched before you count them.
Today would be a really good day to double check anything financial you might have going on-make sure your automatic deposits and payments are set up correctly, that you have the correct due dates on moneys owed. Overall, just a day to really make sure financial matters are as you think they are.
