Rune of the Day: Ehwaz Reversed

Everything seems to be getting in your way today; nothing is going smoothly.  Often when it feels like the Universe is conspiring to hold us back, that is because we are on a path that we are not meant to go down.  Look at the situation objectively, are these normal delays, what is to be expected in life; or are they perhaps a message being sent to you.
Tarot Card of the Day: 7 of Cups

So many things are vying for your attention lately that it is easy to get distracted and lose focus.  It's tempting to want to do everything, but there is only so much time in a day.  Don't get so caught up in the possibilities of what might be, that you lose track of what is really happening, and really important, right now.
The Two Together

 Ehwaz reversed paired with the 7 of Cups is telling us not to get carried away with our dreams of what we want.  Its wonderful to dream and to have goals;  but when our reach exceeds our grasp,  the Universe will tend to step in and put the kibosh on things.  Try to remember this is happening for our own good.

Rune of the Day: Jera  

Patience is essential right now, although you are well on your way to obtaining your goals, the outcome cannot be rushed.  Most good things take time to happen, and obtaining your dreams is no exception.  Enjoy the progress that you make and know that when you finally reach your goal you have truly earned it.
Tarot Card of the Day: 3 of Swords Reversed
Beware of clinging to false hope where relationships are concerned.  Sometimes it seems easier to stay in a bad relationship than to be on your own; after all, there's always the chance things will get better. (snicker, snicker)  Look at the relationship openly and honestly and then do what is best for you in the long run.
The Two Together 
Jera paired with the reversed 3 of Swords is telling us that we have been patient enough.  Sometimes we just have to stop clinging to the hope that things will get better and either move on or accept that this is the way it is.  This is the time to make that decision and act on it.

Rune of the Day: Eihwaz
Expect some changes in your life today, some of them will seem very unfair.  Just remember that it is important that you do what is right, regardless of what others have done.  At least you are now seeing their true colors.
Tarot Card of the Day: 7 of Swords
You may feel like taking the easy way out today, or only doing the bare minimum.  At the same time, you know doing things this way is going to catch up with you sooner or later, so take the extra time and do the right thing today.   Putting in some extra effort now, will make things much easier in the long run.
The Two Together
Eihwaz paired with the 7 of Swords is reminding us that we always need to take the high road, no matter what those around us are doing.  Although others may do hurtful things to us, and to those we love, there is no point in sinking to their level in return.  It only drags us down, instead answer them with kindness and maybe you can help lift them up a little.  (Even if you don't want to!) lol

Rune of the Day: Gifu
Remember that real partnerships are an even distribution of labor, not one person doing all the work.  It will be very easy today to get so caught up in the idea of "we" are going to get this done, that you fail to notice that you are the only one doing any heavy lifting.  Make sure to take time for yourself in all your relationships today, don't let yourself get swallowed up by them.
Tarot Card of the Day: 10 of Pentacles
You've reached that place financially, maybe not quite where you want to be, but nonetheless a good place. Take a little time to appreciate what you have and to share what you are no longer using or don't need at all.  Only by sharing this wealth will it continue to grow instead of stagnate.
The Two Together
Gifu paired with the 10 of Pentacles is reminding us that we did not reach our goals alone.  It took help from others, directly and indirectly.  So share some of what you have back, and help the next person reach their goals.

Rune of the Day: Ansuz Reversed
Mercury retrograde is really making itself felt today with lots of missed communication and bad advice.  Take things slowly, double check them, and try to remember that getting it wrong it the way it's meant to be and nothing that could have been prevented.
Tarot Card of the Day: 4 of Cups
It's great to have dreams, but don't let an idealized version of the future stop you from enjoying what you have right now.  Don't hold out for absolute perfection when something very nearly perfect is right in front of you.  Remember that dreams are just that-dreams, although we can obtain them, they are never quite as perfect as in our imagination.
The Two Together 
Take what people tell you today with a grain of salt, there is bound to be some miscommunication.  This is especially true when someone is telling you what you really want to hear-for today, know that the truth will be close to what you have been told, but it won't be exact.

Monday, June 23, 2014

Rune of the Day: Ehwaz Reversed
You may feel like you are stuck in a rut today, as if no matter how hard you try you just can't get ahead.  Your progress is being delayed, but only temporarily.  Have patience, and work on changing the things that you can, so that you are ready to move ahead at full speed once those blockages disappear. 
Tarot Card of the Day: 6 of Wands
You should always take the time to enjoy all that you have accomplished in life.  There is nothing wrong with a little bit of pride.  Just don't become so content with what you have, and the progress you've made, that you stop trying to better yourself.  There is no faster way to lose what you have than to stop appreciating it, and no faster way to lose yourself than to stop trying to do better.
The Two Together
Mannaz reversed paired with the 6 of Wands is telling us to slow down, to enjoy what we have without always being so focused on what we don't have.  Sometimes we're so busy chasing the next new best thing, that we forget just how good what we already have is.

Sunday, June 22, 2014

Rune of the Day: Sigel

Things just seem to fall into place today; your intuition is working overtime.  Your next steps, which path you should take, which choice you should make, its all just very clear to you today.  Follow that intuition and see just how far you can go and how well you can do.
Tarot Card of the Day: Death

There will be some changes in your life today.  Some of those things that have been dragging you down, that you just don't enjoy anymore: today is the day to just let them go.  Make some room in your life for things that make you happy and lift you up, instead of dragging you down.
The Two Together

Sigel paired with Death is telling us that the changes coming our way today are positive ones, ones that will help us grow.  Although some of these changes may be unsettling, they will clearly be for the best-the loss of things that you have grown tired of.  You're starting on a more positive journey, the negative things can't come along, they'll just hold you back.


Saturday, June 21, 2014

Rune of the Day: Tir Reversed
You may be so focused on what's going on with you and yours today that you're missing out on the big picture.  Sometimes what feels like an injustice is actually a necessity, just on a larger scale; such as taking a pay cut to remain employed.  Try to step back from the situation, looking at everything that's happening will help put it in perspective.
Tarot Card of the Day: 6 of Pentacles

You are perfectly willing to help others today, but only on your terms.  The problem is, what they need may not be what you're willing to give. If you can't help with what is needed, don't be upset if your generosity is refused.  Sometimes only certain kinds of help will do.
The Two Together
Tir reversed paired with the 6 of Pentacles is telling us that we must get out of our own world today and pay attention to what's going on around us.  Sometimes we are just so focused on ourselves that we don't see how we are impacting the bigger picture.  Today is a day to really look at our effect on the world around us and to see how we can make it better.

Friday, June 20, 2014

Rune of the Day: Kenaz
Focus on learning today, on expanding your abilities and talents.  Check out new ways of doing things, and see how others do the same things that you do.  Maybe they have a different perspective that can help you do things more efficiently.
Tarot Card of the Day: Lovers Reversed
Make sure you consider how a decision affects everyone involved today: be aware of all the aspects of your choice.  Don't get so caught up in your vision of perfection that you don't realize perhaps someone else has a different idea of what's perfect.
The Two Together
Spend some time today listening to the people around you-coworkers, friends, family.  They may have some ideas and perspectives you haven't considered before.  Really hear what they have to say, you'll probably find some really good ideas.

Thursday, June 19, 2014

Rune of the Day: Perthro

Listen to your intuition today, to your inner voice.  This is a day to try your luck, to take a chance on something new.  The more attention we pay to the hidden messages the Universe sends us, the more 'luck' we seem to have.  
Tarot Card of the Day: King of Pentacles Reversed

You understand that there is more to life than material things.  Although you are willing to work for what you want, you know that what will really make you happy isn't more stuff-its something you can't quite put your finger on.  Look deep within yourself today, that's where you will find your happiness.
The Two Together

Perthro paired with the reversed King of Pentacles is clearly telling us that we can find what will make us happy if we look within.  We need to trust ourselves, and our intuition, to take us where we are meant to be.  Happiness and luck come from trusting ourselves, that's what both of these are telling us to do.

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Rune of the Day: Sigel
This is a day of energy, of good things happening, of getting a lot accomplished.  Things just seem to fall into place today, everything works out well, even if not exactly the way you planned.  Sometimes small setbacks lead us to great opportunities, today is one of those days.
Tarot Card of the Day: Tower Reversed
You may not see what is staring you in the face today.  Sometimes its easier to not notice or to only see what you want in life.  Eventually this willful blindness catches up to you, not today, but sooner or later.  You can only hide your head in the sand for so long.
The Two Together
Sigel paired with the reversed Tower is telling us that although things are going well right now, we know that some things need to change.  Ignoring these things will not make them go away, and may make the situation worse in the long run.  Enjoy today, but start really looking at what is going on around you-you'll know what you have to put an end to.

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Rune of the Day: Ehwaz
Today is all about changes, big ones, little ones, fat ones, skinny ones, even ones with chicken pox. LOL  (If you are old enough you may remember the song where that came from.)  Ehwaz is about making progress, about changing your life and/or yourself.  Take some concrete steps towards change today, or at least set some concrete goals.  You'll be glad you did.
Tarot Card of the Day: 2 of Swords
You've been putting off making a decision-your heart says one thing and your head says another.   You keep hoping they will find a way to meet in the middle, but that only happens when you take action.  You have to make a decision, if not today, then very soon.  At least decide which way you are leaning and start taking steps towards that outcome.  Remaining in stasis will not solve anything.
The Two Together
Ehwaz paired with the 2 of Swords is telling us its time to make and act on a decision that we've been putting off.  Maybe we've been second guessing ourselves, or just not sure of what direction to go in.  Today is the day to pick a direction, to choose a side, to make a new start at whatever we've been letting hold us back.  We only grow through motion, sometimes we go the wrong way, but even that helps us learn.  Better to try and lose than never to take a chance.

Monday, June 16, 2014

Rune of the Day: Daeg

Things will seem much clearer today, almost like coming out of a fog.  You'll have a new perspective and with this comes new confidence.  You'll know the right way to tackle the issues that have been holding you back. 
Tarot Card of the Day: 6 of Swords

Sometimes we have to move on from negative situations.  That is what is happening today, its time to leave behind the things that are holding us back, or hurting us in any way: physically, emotionally, or mentally.  Just know that moving away alone is no solution: you have to understand how you arrived in that situation and not follow that same pattern in the future.
The Two Together

Daeg paired with the 6 of Swords is telling us its time to change our thinking. Time to look at things in a new way, to think outside of our own very small boxes.  Opening up our perspective will open up our world and provide a host of new and better opportunities.

Sunday, June 15, 2014

Rune of the Day: Othala
Focus on family today, on your roots, and where you feel you belong.  So much of who we are and what we have comes from those we call family whether they are blood relations or not.  Take the time to enjoy them today.
Tarot Card of the Day: 5 of Pentacles
Sometimes we have to look for the hidden blessings in life, because what's right in front of us isn't that great.  Often something good is within sight, if we just look for it.  Focusing on the positive just helps it come to us sooner.
The Two Together
Othala paired with the 5 of Pentacles is telling us to focus on family today.  Look at the good in your family and friends, don't focus on their faults.  After all, when push comes to shove, they are what you can count on. 

Saturday, June 14, 2014

Rune of the Day: Uruz Reversed

Today will be a day of small inconveniences; you may even feel a bit under the weather.  Just take things slowly today, some of what is slowing you down may be the Universe telling you that you're missing something.   Keep an open mind, there are opportunities all around you just waiting to be noticed.
Tarot Card of the Day: Knight of Swords

You are going after what you want today; you have your goals set and you are going to meet them.  Go for it, just don't get so focused that you lose sight of what is around you.  It would be a shame to miss the large pot of gold to your left because you were focused on the smaller pile in front of you.
The Two Together:

Both Uruz reversed and the Knight of Swords are telling us to pay attention to what is going on around us today.  Uruz is slowing us down so we can, and the Knight is telling us not to be so closed minded that we miss something important.  Keep your mind and your eyes open today, there is something great out there waiting for you.

Friday, June 13, 2014

Rune of the Day: Isa
Today is a day of stasis, of nothing really changing.  This is not the day to start anything new, or to try to force things to go your way.  You may feel like you are stuck in tar for much of the day, with nothing happening.  Trying to make something happen is almost sure to just mire you in deeper, so just find a way to relax and wait for the path to clear.
Tarot Card of the Day: King of Cups Reversed
Family issues may take the forefront today, you may be called upon to step in and help.  Try not to get so caught up in helping others that you neglect yourself.  Its easy to do, especially when those you love are struggling, but remember that you can't change them.  Give them your support and the help that you can, but don't let someone else's problem become your only focus.
The Two Together
Isa paired with the reversed King of Cups is telling us that sometimes no matter how much we want to help, we have to just step aside.  We can't always solve other people's problems, no matter how much we love them, or how much we want to.  When nothing we do seems to work, that's the Universe telling us its time to step aside and let others deal with the situation on their own. 

Thursday, June 12, 2014

Rune of the Day: Algiz Reversed
You may be feeling a bit under the weather today, or perhaps its just a bit of a letdown after yesterday's burst of energy.  Allow yourself a bit of downtime; and if everything didn't go perfectly yesterday, take the time to see what new doorways may have opened.  Often, things don't work out so that they can lead us to better things.
Tarot Card of the Day: 7 of Swords Reversed
Take some time today to really think about what you want to do next.  This is not a day to be impetuous, planning is essential.  Look at the long term consequences of your actions, make sure they are worth any immediate satisfaction you're contemplating.
The Two Together
The pairing of Algiz and the 7 of Swords, both reversed, is telling us clearly that today is not a day to take any new action.  Its very much a time to think over the things that have happened recently and to plan where we want to go, and what we want to do next.   

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Rune of the Day: Ing
Today is a day of getting things done, of ambition, of creativity, of completion.  Projects you've been working on, things you've just wanted to get out of the way-today is the day that you get it all done, a day to really clear the decks for whatever might be coming next.
Tarot Card of the Day: Temperance Reversed
You are so full of energy and determination today that you might be tempted to overdo.  Its easy to get carried away when things are happening quickly, when you have so much you want to do that you just can't wait to do it all.  Remember though, it doesn't all have to be done today.  Practice just a bit of moderation or you may find yourself completely out of sorts tomorrow.
The Two Together
The energy of Ing paired with the lack on restraint indicated by reversed Temperance is almost a guarantee of overdoing, overindulging, overeverything.  Try not to get so caught up in the moment, that you lose track of the big picture.  That will be very easy to do today. 

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Rune of the Day: Gifu
Pay particular attention to the people around you today.  One or more of them may need something from you that they don't know how to ask for.  Reach out, because they will be able to help you in return, probably in a way you hadn't expected. 
Tarot Card of the Day: The World
 Looks like smooth sailing for today.  Everything just seems to fall into place.  Enjoy the tranquility of the day, spread some of it around to those having a rough day.  Sometimes all anyone needs is a smile and a kind word.

The Two Together
Gifu paired with the World is telling us to reach out to those around us today.  If we just all help each other a little today, then we will all have a great day.  

Monday, June 9, 2014

Rune of the Day: Eihwaz
Things are changing today, and not necessarily in the way that you want.  This change is not only necessary but for the best.  Instead of lashing out at those responsible, take the high road.  In the long run you'll not only be better off, but feel better about the way you handled things. 

Tarot Card of the Day: 9 of Swords
Things are not as bad as they seem today.  Although it may feel like you are stuck in a bad situation that you cannot change, it is actually only your perspective that is stuck.  Open your eyes to the new opportunities that are there for you now, and take advantage of them.

The Two Together
Eihwaz paired with the 9 of Swords is telling us that although things are ending and changing in our lives, it is all our perspective as to how we handle these changes.  Some things we may not want to end, but if we look at them honestly, we can see that it is time to let them go.  Do what is right in these situations, thing things through.  Just reacting, without thinking, rarely gives a good result.

Sunday, June 8, 2014

Rune of the Day: Raidho

 It may be taking longer than you would like for things to come together.  Just know that you are making progress: sometimes its the journey that is more important than the destination.  Right now is one of those times.

Tarot Card of the Day: Hanged Man Reversed

 You may not be really sure about what you want out of life right now, but there are still decisions to be made.  You still need to pick a direction; choose the one that gives you the best feeling.  You may need to make a few wrong turns before you find the right path for yourself.  Just be sure that you never do anything that doesn't serve your best interests.

The Two Together

Raidho and the reversed Hanged Man both speak of the journeys we take.  Sometimes literal, sometimes figurative, sometimes metaphysical we are always journeying somewhere.  What we need to focus on today is the journey, not the destination.  We don't need to be on the right path, but we do need to stay true to ourselves.  If we can do that, everything else falls into place.

Saturday, June 7, 2014

Rune of the Day: Wunjo
Today is a day of successes, of getting things done, of fulfillment.  Expect things to go your way today, to just sort of fall into place.  You may be pleasantly surprised by a lot of little things today, like the joy you find in your loved ones.
Tarot Card of the Day: 7 of Wands Reversed
You may feel like everyone is trying to make you change things today, even though you feel things are working fine.  Try to keep an open mind, just because something is working fine, doesn't mean doing it differently won't work even better.  Just give something new a shot, if you don't like it, you don't do have to stick with it.

The Two Together
Wunjo paired with the reversed 7 of Wands is telling us to try new things, that they can lead us to more fulfillment.  Its often something new to us that just makes sense when we hear it for the first time.  It doesn't mean we have to abandon the old, just add to it, and enjoy a new sense of fulfillment.

Friday, June 6, 2014

Rune of the Day: Fehu
Things are just coming together today, especially financially.  That unexpected expense suddenly isn't necessary, the repair as big as you thought it would be; just all the little things in life falling your way today.  Enjoy your good fortune, but be sure to share it-hoarding it will just cause it to turn bad.
Tarot Card of the Day: 2 of Cups Reversed
Its very important that you take care of business yourself today.   You have so much to do that you may feel like delegating some of the less pleasant tasks to others; but shirking your responsibilities in this way lessens the rewards that you earn.  You've made commitments, you must live up to them yourself.
The Two Together
The pairing of Fehu and  the reversed 2 of Cups is reminding us that even when things are going well for us, we have a responsibility to others.  Sometimes we may want to put that off, or have others handle it for us, but its important that we honor the promises we made when things weren't going so well.   The more generous and fair we are in our dealings, the more generous and fair our rewards.

Thursday, June 5, 2014

Rune of the Day: Nied
The challenge today is to find a way to work around the obstacles in your way, including those that you put there yourself.  They are all there to teach you something, and they're not going away until you learn it.  Whether it is diplomacy, persistence, or knowing when to step back focus on finding solutions today, not on the problem itself.
Tarot Card of the Day: 8 of Cups
Some people continue to hurt us, often without meaning to, or even knowing that they are.  Eventually we have to let these people go, step back and let them live their lives without our involvement.  Its time to make that decision about someone close to you. No matter how many 'second' chances this person is given, they just can't help themselves.   Its time to move on from them, you have to do it for yourself.
The Two Together
Nied paired with the 8 of Cups is telling us that it is time to let go of whatever, and especially whoever, is holding us back.  This is not necessarily someone deliberately holding us back, but someone who just by being around them limits our growth, or makes us feel like less than we know that we are.  Moving on doesn't mean we think we're better than anyone else, just that we are in a different place than they are right now.

Wednesday, June 4, 2014

Rune of the Day: Beorc Reversed
You may have to admit defeat on something you've been trying to accomplish for a while now.  You have given it your best shot but some things are just not meant to work out.  Remember though, that you at least tried: you'll always have the experience and the knowledge you gained in the attempt.
Tarot Card of the Day: Queen of Wands 

 You know exactly how you want things to turn out and just can't wait to start bringing that vision to reality.  Just be a little flexible in your ideas in case things don't work out exactly as you envision them.
The Two Together

The pairing of the Queen of Wands with Beorc reversed is telling us its time to move on to something new, to take what we have learned from past failures and use that knowledge in other ways.  Nothing is ever a complete failure, we always have at least gained some experience from anything we attempt.  Use that experience and knowledge in planning your next project.
