Rune of the Day: Kenaz Reversed
Be careful of what you say and do today.  Its easy to view others through the lens of our own experiences: but we never know their whole story.  Find out all the facts before you judge others or their actions.  What seems wrong to you may just be the right thing for them.
Tarot Card of the Day: Chariot
You may feel like you are sailing through a sea of conflict today, everyone is telling you something different, and they all are doing their best for you.  Take some time to really consider what each person is saying, don't rush into any decisions.  You may feel like you have to do something right away, but you really don't-take your time!
The Two Together
The Chariot and Kenaz reversed are both telling us to slow down today, to try to see things from others' perspectives.  We should not be jumping to conclusions, or rushing to take action.  We really need to look at the whole picture, and from many different sides before making any decisions today.

Rune of the Day: Eihwaz

Remain flexible and accepting no matter what curves life throws at you today.  These surprises will require some endurance on your part, but they are truly for your own good.  Often it is the unpleasant things in our lives that precede the periods of true happiness and growth.
Tarot Card of the Day: 8 of Swords

Although you may feel overwhelmed by problems today, most of what is wrong is just that-what you are feeling.  Its easy to think that nothing is going right and that the fates are against you; but today, its how you are looking at things that is making the situation so bleak.   Look for something positive to focus on, then for something else positive and just keep going from there.

 The Two Together

The 8 of Swords paired with Eihwaz is telling us its all about perspective today.  Things go wrong in life, unpleasant things happen, but we can't let ourselves get bogged down in them-we have to keep on going.  That is the only way to learn the lessons we are being taught, and to go on to enjoy that knowledge.

Monday, April 28, 2014

Rune of the Day: Ansuz Reversed
Expect lots of crossed signals today: missed communication, talking at cross purposes; it may just feel a bit like Mercury retrograde.  Pay attention to what others say, and say precisely what you mean.  Others may misinterpret things you say today, or you may misinterpret them, so have patience and clear up misunderstandings without judgment or blame.
Tarot Card of the Day: 8 of Swords Reversed
 You are starting to see things more clearly, to see more of the big picture.  Its becoming clear to you that although bad things happen sometimes, it doesn't mean you're a bad person-its just part of life.  This new found clarity will help open new doors for you and give you new opportunities in life. 

The Two Together
The pairing of the 8 of Swords and Ansuz, both reversed, is just reminding us that sometimes things go wrong, and we cannot take them personally.  Life is all about choices-we can focus on what went wrong, or we can fix it and move on to something more positive.  Its always our choice-I'll take moving on to better things myself!

Sunday, April 27, 2014

Rune of the Day: Ehwaz
Some days are just meant to be the start of something new, today is meant to be the start of a new you.  Start that workout routine, get that haircut or color, find that new apartment, start that journal or daily meditation.  Whatever it is you want to change, today is the day to start. 
Tarot Card of the Day: 10 of Pentacles
Things will go well for you today, especially on the home front.  Enjoy some time with friends and family, just enjoying each other's company.   There is a real feeling of security in being with your loved ones.
The Two Together
While Ehwaz is telling us to focus on ourselves, the 10 of Pentacles is reminding us that family and friends are important too.  We need to keep a balance today, spending some time on ourselves, and some with our loved ones.  Overall, that's a pretty good idea for any day!

Saturday, April 26, 2014

Rune of the Day: Wunjo
Blessings continue to rain down on you today, though these may be more emotional and spiritual than material.  You'll have a feeling of complete comfort, of true inner security, peace and happiness.  Enjoy this contentment, harness it along with your natural energy, and just dream of all you can accomplish with your life.  
Tarot Card of the Day: Devil Reversed
This is a day when you will find yourself letting go of the things that hold you back, of finding a greater understanding of yourself and your own motivations.  Those close to you will also seem to understand you better, helping you rather than hindering you.  Together these things give you a new sense of inner balance, of well-being.
The Two Together
Both Wunjo and the Devil Reversed are telling us that today is a day of new understandings, of enlightenment, of releasing those things that have been holding us back.  Its time for us to focus on the things that lift us up, instead of worrying about the things we can't control. 

Friday, April 25, 2014

Rune of the Day: Perthro
Luck is on your side today, take advantage of it.  This is a day when good things will happen just right out of the blue-enjoy them.  Try something new with all this positive energy surrounding you-you're bound to do well at it. 
Tarot Card of the Day: Temperance

Your dealings with others will go very smoothly today, you will find them rather cooperative.  It may just be that its Friday, and everyone is looking forward to the weekend, but just taking things as they come will get a lot accomplished today.  Just don't be in a hurry to rush things, take them as they come.
The Two Together
Temperance is paired with Perthro today as almost a warning. Its telling us to enjoy our good fortune, to take advantage of things going well, but not to push our luck.  Its great to ride a lucky streak, but when we start counting on that streak for the big things in life, that's when we run into trouble.  Temperance is there to remind us of that fact.

Thursday, April 24, 2014

Rune of the Day: Mannaz

There might just be a new job offer coming your way today.  Its a day for self-reflection, for deciding what you really want out of life, and how you can achieve it. Perhaps this new opportunity can help you on your way.

Tarot Card of the Day: 7 of Pentacles Reversed

Try to practice patience today, especially in financial matters.  Although it looks like your finances will be improving soon, don't jump the gun.  Wait until details are finalized, and the money is in your pocket before making plans for it.
The Two Together

The 7 of Pentacles appears as a tempering influence for Mannaz.  Although there are new possibilities on the horizon, and things are looking up, we really need to exercise caution.  It is only asking for trouble to get ahead of ourselves and to anticipate gains that may not be all we are hoping for.  

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Rune of the Day:  Sigel
 The Universe will smile on you today, giving you good fortune and a feeling of warmth.  Its a day to relish the energy that you have, and to see things as they truly are.  You will feel truly complete, as though you have learned some of the Universe's secrets-and maybe you have!

Tarot Card of the Day: The Chariot
 You may feel like you have to get everything done, and get it all done right now.  Slow down a little, rushing rarely leads to anything good.  Although you feel like you are regaining control of things in your life, take the time to really think about your actions and their consequences.  Acting hastily can lead to more problems in the long run.
The Two Together
The pairing of Sigel and the Chariot reminds us that caution is always needed, even when things are going well.  Its all too easy to get caught up in the flow of things when it feels like you can do nothing wrong.  The Chariot is a reminder that just because things are going well for us, we still need to think of how our choices and actions affect others.   Otherwise, we may end up scrambling to undo damage we didn't even know we were doing.

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Rune of the Day: Gifu
 Spend some time appreciating your blessings today, and perhaps giving thanks.  The Divine is a partner with us always, and sometimes needs to be acknowledged for its part in our accomplishments.  Everything in life is give and take, plus and minus: remember that, and make sure that you are helping others as much as you are receiving help.

Tarot Card of the Day: 7 of Swords Reversed
 Be careful with your words today, and with what and who you listen to.  Its easy to say too much, or to speak before you think, today- both for you and for others.  Look at the facts before making any decision, don't give the opinions of others that much weight today.
The Two Together 
The pairing of Gifu and the reversed 7 of Swords is reminding us that there is good and bad, and give and take, in any situation.  Sometimes people's advice is better than other times, sometimes they are more able to help us than at other times.  This is one of those days when we are best off relying as much as possible on just ourselves.

Monday, April 21, 2014

Rune of the Day: Lagaz
Work with your more esoteric gifts today.  Your intuition will be especially strong, and can help you reach your goals more quickly.  Let it express itself however it may-use your imagination.  Pay special attention to your dreams and what your subconscious is telling you. 
Tarot Card of the Day: 3 of Staffs

You have the knowledge to do whatever you set your mind to today, especially on the career front.  Be willing to participate in a little give and take, and you'll see things work out almost exactly as you had hoped. 
The Two Together
The pairing of Lagaz and the 3 of Staffs is telling us to use all of our knowledge, both mundane and magickal, and all of our senses, both physical and psychic to accomplish our goals.  We all have gifts and talents; the more we use them, the stronger they become, and the better we become.

Sunday, April 20, 2014

Rune of the Day: Uruz Reversed
You may feel a bit under the weather today; don't worry it won't last long.  It is just your system getting back in balance.  Sometimes we spend too much time focusing on the material in life, and our spiritual side gives us some down time so we can get our equilibrium back. 
Tarot Card of the Day: 5 of Staffs
You may have a lot to get done today, and feel like you are being thwarted at every turn.  It may seem like absolutely nothing is going your way, and that you will never finish what you've started.  Just do the bare essentials, most of it can wait til later in the week.
The Two Together
The pairing of Uruz reversed with the 5 of Staffs is telling us to slow down.  Actually, its pretty much making us slow down, either by putting obstacles in our way, or by making us feel a little under the weather.  I know sometimes that's the only way I stop, is when I am ill.  Listen to what the Universe is saying and take time for yourself today, get yourself back in balance.  You'll be able to function much better once you do. 

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Rune of the Day: Tir Reversed

Don't be so blinded in the pursuit of your goals that you miss what is going on around you.  Being so single-focused can cause you to lose part of yourself, or to slight others.  It also makes it easy for less scrupulous people to take advantage of you.
Tarot Card of the Day: Justice Reversed

Things in life don't always happen fairly, people don't always treat you honestly.  Sometimes you are blamed for things you had nothing to do with.  This may be a life lesson, or it may be something you can avoid by being aware of what is going on around you.  
The Two Together
Tir and Justice, both reversed, are clearly saying that things may not go well for us today.  This may be because we have been so focused on ourselves and our goals that we have been neglecting the big picture around us.  Take some time today to see what is going on with the people around you-maybe you can help them and save yourself some hassle in the process.

Friday, April 18, 2014

Rune of the Day: Beork
Lots of new things are on the way today: new experiences; possibly a new family member-a pregnancy or a marriage perhaps?  Stretch your creative wings today, try something new: writing, drawing, building, painting, whatever speaks to you.
Tarot Card of the Day: 4 of Staffs
This is a day to enjoy the good things in life-maybe even to indulge in a little romance.  It should be a fairly tranquil day, one to rest and enjoy the work you've put in on building the life you want. 
The Two Together
Beork and the 4 of Staffs are both telling us to relax today, to enjoy ourselves, to do what makes us happy.  Make sure to include others in your circle today, both also speak of the joys of family and relationships, including friends.

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Rune of the Day: Kenaz Reversed

Anything can be used for good or for bad: a knife can be used in cooking, or as a weapon.  The same with our words and attitudes with each other.  We can build each other up, or try to tear each other down.  Think carefully before you speak or act today: are you making things better or worse? 
Tarot Card of the Day: Death Reversed

 You may feel like you are stuck in a rut today, that things are progressing at a snail's pace.  Sometimes stagnation is needed so we can recharge ourselves, and other times it is a way of inspiring us to try something new so that we can shake things up.   Which do you feel like doing today?

The Two Together

Kenaz reversed paired with Death reversed is warning us not to take out our frustrations on others, or in a negative way.  Being stuck can be frustrating, but it is much better to climb your way out of the rut, and lift yourself up by being positive, than it is to climb out by stepping on others, or harming them. 

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Rune of the Day: Hagall


Again today things just don't go your way-the Universe is clearing the deadwood from your life so that there is room for the blessings that are coming your way.  The more old stuff that is removed, the freer you are to accept new blessings.
Tarot Card of the Day: Sun


Sometimes it is the little things in life that give us the most enjoyment-seeing flowers bud and bloom, green breaking through the ground after a long winter, the feel of the sun on your face.  Take the time to enjoy all the little things today and appreciate how blessed you truly are. 
The Two Together

The Sun paired with Hagall is reminding us to appreciate the little things in life, the blessings that we have.  Although we may be in the middle of big changes in our life, and not comfortable while the change is happening, we do have lots to appreciate, to enjoy in the moment.  That is where we should focus when we get discouraged.

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Rune of the Day: Isa
It feels like the rest of the world is conspiring against you today.  No matter what you try, something goes wrong.  You may even find yourself moving backwards.  Don't try to fight through the blockages, just step back and let them work themselves out.  Sometimes retreat really is the best option.
Tarot Card of the Day: Wheel of Fortune
Things come full circle today, look for the patterns in your life.  No matter how badly or well something is going, it will always change.  Expect some of those changes today; remember that they are not personal, they are part of the cycle that is our lives.
The Two Together
Isa paired with the Wheel of Fortune is reminding us that even when things don't seem to be changing, there are still forces working behind the scenes.  Sometimes they seem to be working in our favor, and sometimes against us.  We just have to remember that life is full of cycles, and from the worst tragedies can arise the greatest blessings.

Monday, April 14, 2014

Rune of the Day: Othala
 Don't be surprised if a relative you rarely hear from reaches out to you today.  Family is a large part of who we are, whether we love them or hate them.  Its a good day to think about burying the hatchet with those family members you've had disagreements with, especially if they are reaching out to you.

Tarot Card of the Day: 8 of Wands Reversed
 It may feel like you are standing still at work, like no one is noticing all the extra effort you put in.  Office politics and petty disputes among coworkers seem to be all that is going on today.  Just stay out of all that, you don't need to lower yourself to that level.

The Two Together
Othala paired with the reversed 8 of Wands is telling us to focus more on home life and family today.  This is a day to just put in our time at work, and to keep our focus on our loved ones.  After all, that is where we belong.

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Rune of the Day: Raidho Reversed
 You may not get exactly what you want today, but you will get it eventually.  You may have to take a roundabout route, and there will be some inconvenience, but you will reach your goals if you just have patience.  Just remember that sometimes the journey is more fun than the destination.

Tarot Card of the Day: Moon Reversed
 You may find yourself trying to take the easy way out today; to skip doing things that will need to be done eventually.  There's nothing wrong with that as long as you understand that when you let things slide it can be harder to get caught up. 

The Two Together
Raidho and the Moon, both reversed, are telling us that we are setting our own path to our goals.  If we take it easy on occasion, put off doing what we need to, it will take longer.  Very often, the glitches in our plans, are the result of our own actions-sometimes the direct results, sometimes the karmic results.  The more positive our actions, the quicker and more smoothly we reach our goals.

Saturday, April 12, 2014

Rune of the Day: Fehu Reversed

You may find yourself tempted to splurge today, to go ahead and just buy that one thing you've had your eye on.  You probably feel like you deserve it, and maybe you do.  Just remember that giving in to that temptation means there is less money for other things, and some of those may be more important in the long run.
Tarot Card of the Day: Page of Cups

Take some time for quiet reflection today, time to just relax and enjoy yourself.  Sometimes you spend so much time and energy on helping others that you leave nothing for yourself-so take today to take care of yourself-you've definitely earned it.
The Two Together

Fehu Reversed paired with the Page of Cups is cautioning us not to spend all of our resources, and that includes time and energy on others.   We need to make sure that we have enough for ourselves first.   There is nothing wrong with telling someone we can't help them, especially if helping them will cause us to struggle.

Friday, April 11, 2014

Rune of the Day: Ing
You may feel a bit like a cat on a hot tin roof today, one with a lot of energy, almost as if you've emerged from a long period of sleep.  You may not know in what direction to focus this energy-creatively or otherwise.  Just be sure you don't do something that will bring discord to your life.
Tarot Card of the Day: 9 of Pentacles
You can accomplish pretty much anything you set your mind to today.  Things are just coming together almost perfectly for you.  Financially, especially, all your hard work is paying off today. 
The Two Together
The 9 of Pentacles paired with Ing is telling you to take that extra energy and focus it on making money today.  Not necessarily focus on your daily job, perhaps try something new.  Its the weekend, a last minute garage sale, or perhaps go shopping for a bargain on something you've been wanting for a while.  Things are going your way, definitely have fun while this is happening. 

Thursday, April 10, 2014

Rune of the Day: Daeg
 You see things with a new clarity today; suddenly everything seems much more plain.  You can make the changes you need to make for success, because you know that you will be successful.  That confidence spurs you to an even greater level of self-awareness. 

Tarot Card of the Day: 8 of Cups
Today you have to walk away from a  person who is causing you more pain than you can deal with anymore.  You have done your best to make this work, and so have they, but for whatever reason, they just can't stop hurting you.  Sometimes, no matter how much it hurts to walk away, that is the only way to keep the pain from continuing. 
The Two Together
Daeg paired with the 8 of Cups is saying that today we are capable of making the tough choices, of doing what is right for ourselves in the long run no matter how much it may hurt right now.  We know what will make us happier, and we will do it, no matter the temporary discomfort.

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

Rune of the Day:Nied Reversed
 Although things are not going well at all today, they are not as completely hopeless as they seem.  Everything seems overwhelming, but seems is the key word.  Step back, look at the situation coldly, and change what needs to be changed.  If you can just stop focusing on what is going wrong, and focus on what needs to change, you'll find a solution.

Tarot Card of the Day: 2 of Pentacles
It may be difficult to juggle all the demands on your time today.  Prioritizing is the key for getting through the day: sometimes we have to put certain things on hold so we can focus on what is more important to us at the moment.  This is one of the days when we really need to focus on what is most important to us. 
The Two Together
Nied Reversed and the 2 of Pentacles both indicate lots going on, and a need to focus, prioritize, and organize.  Try looking at the big picture today, then focus on the individual aspects.  There is nothing you cannot handle, if you just take it piece by piece instead of tackling the whole all at once. 

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

Rune of the Day: Thurisaz Reversed

 You may come up against a problem today, one that is just too big for you to handle on your own.  Ask for help, although it will go against your grain to involve anyone else, having the courage to do that is what will give you the solution you need.  A little humility is never a bad thing. 

Tarot Card of the Day: 5 of Cups Reversed
Things are starting to look up today, it's almost like being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.   You may run into an old friend today, or renew an old acquaintance online.  Overall, today should end with you smiling, and that's always a good day.
The Two Together
Thurisaz and the 5 of Cups, both reversed, are letting us know that there is as solution to any problem, we just sometimes need help finding it.  The Reversed 5 of Cups reminds us that sometimes it is by tapping old resources that we come up with our solutions. 

Monday, April 7, 2014

Rune of the Day: Eihwaz

Even the most comfortable connections in our life sometimes have to come to an end; either because they have served their purpose, or because they are starting to drag us down.  Let these relationships go today, if it is time.  It may be difficult now, but in the long run it will be much less painful to do it now.
Tarot Card of the Day: 2 of Cups Reversed

You may find yourself pretending to be much happier than you are today.  You're very good at handling everything that comes your way, but sometimes it does take a toll.  Don't be afraid to let others know you're stressed, you don't have to do it all on your own.  Just because you can, doesn't mean you have to. 
The Two Together

The Reversed 2 of Cups paired with Eihwaz is telling us that we don't have to pretend everything is okay when it isn't.  We often cling to things that we know we have moved past because we don't want to upset others, so we pretend everything is okay.  Today is the day to drop the pretense, and to drop the things that aren't working for us anymore.  Its time to take care of ourselves and do what's best for us.

Sunday, April 6, 2014

Rune of the Day: Ehwaz


Things just keep rolling along for you today.  The changes you've been working toward in your life are really starting to manifest.  Today may be the day that you add a new person to your ever-improving life, either with an introduction or by involving them more in what you like to do.  
Tarot Card of the Day: Emperor Reversed

 Your emotions will be very near the surface today.  Sometimes holding them in can be a struggle, but expressing them right now will just cause hard feelings for others, and later on, regret for you.  So put on your happy face in public and open up to someone who truly understands you.

The Two Together

The Emperor Reversed paired with Ehwaz reminds us that just because things are going well for us, we may still sometimes be overwhelmed by negativity.  There is not always a known reason for why we feel the way we do, the trick is to look for the positive.  That may mean focusing on the big picture, or looking for something small to bring us just a moment's joy: whichever one it is, that is what we should be focusing on doing today.
