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.
