Rune of the Day: Thurisaz

Today would be a great day to do some serious soul-searching.  Sometimes, in order for us to grow, we have to let go of the things from our past that we have been allowing to hold us back: old hurts and traumas.  Though those things will always be a part of us, the more we let them influence how we live our lives today, the more power we give them.  Acknowledge those things, accept that they happened for a reason, and let them go-take away their power over your life. 
Tarot Card of the Day: 6 of Cups Reversed

  Instead of looking at the past through rose-colored glasses, start focusing on the future.  Make new plans, look forward to trying new things, seeing new places, meeting new people.  It is through change that we grow.  What is in our past has certainly helped to shape us, but focusing on it prevents us from moving on. 

The Two Together

Thurisaz and the 6 of Cups reversed are both telling us that it is time to let go of the past, time to look to the future.  Rewriting the past, making it seem less troubled than it was, does us no good in the long run.  We need to acknowledge our history, learn from it, and now to move past it.  Let the past be a lesson to us, not a place we want to stay.
