Rune of the Day Tir
Tir is a rune of nobility and honor, of justice and balance, of the greater good.
Today, again, we need to keep the big picture in mind and look at the potential consequences of our actions. We need to do what is right for everyone, not just what is easiest for us.
There are always opportunities to take the easy way out and if it doesn't hurt anyone that is great. But often, taking the easy way out harms someone else: usually someone we truly care about. So think carefully today before making any decisions. Then think again before acting on them. When we are truly mindful of our actions and their consequences, we have much less to regret in life.
Tarot Card of the Day: Queen of Pentacles
The Queen of Pentacles is a card of generosity and abundance, of security; it often represents a generous soul.
Some people have more to give than others, and to some people, receiving a very little seems like the world. Do what you can for others, even if its just buying someone a soda or cup of coffee, or taking 5 minutes to listen to what they have to say without judging them.
That little bit of kindness, can change their whole perspective, and yours too.
The Two Together
Tir paired with the Queen of Pentacles reminds us that there can be too much of a good thing. It's great to help others, but not at your own expense, and not to the point that you bring about in them an attitude of dependence.
Give someone a hand up not a handout. That is the key message these two are giving us for today.
