Rune of the Day: Perthro
Try something out of the ordinary today, something you've always wondered about but just haven't found the time or the nerve to do yet.  The Divine is smiling on you so take advantage of that with some new experiences.  Luck will follow you around so take a chance or two on something frivolous.  Remember, the more faith you have, the greater your rewards will be. 
Tarot Card of the Day: Page of Cups Reversed
Don't let your emotions get the better of you today: it may seem really tempting to just stick your head in the sand and not acknowledge any having any problems, but this only postpones the inevitable, and often makes things even worse.  Look at what is going on in your life with clarity and honesty, and act based on a well thought out plan, not on instinct or emotion.
The Two Together
Perthro paired with the reversed Page of Cups is telling us not to get carried away with our emotions when things are going well.  It's okay to spend an extra dollar or two on the lottery if you've been having a run of luck.  It is NEVER okay to spend needed money on the lottery thinking your luck will continue.  Luck is not a given, and it usually disappears right when we're chasing it the hardest, or relying on it the most.

Rune of the Day: Othala
 So much of what we have and who we are comes from our ancestors-sometimes in an actual inheritance, sometimes in physical traits or mental attitudes.  Enjoy the heritage that you have, learn a little more about it, use the strengths you've inherited to better yourself.  Spend some time with any older family members you may have left-they have a lot to teach us.
Tarot Card of the Day: 2 of Swords
Be aware of what is going on around you today.  Its easy to just accept things at face value and not look any deeper.  The more aware you are of what's happening under the radar, the less likely you are to have an unpleasant surprise.  Listen to things people are talking about, all too often the warning signs of change are there, they have just been ignored.
The Two Together
 Othala paired with the 2 of Swords is reminding us that even when things are going well, when we are in a good place in our lives, we still must be aware of what is going on around us.  Often we choose not to look at things that are unpleasant, or to hope they will go away on their own.  They usually don't-so pay attention to those little things-the appliance that isn't working quite right, the engine light that goes on and off in the car, even that nagging cough.  Acting on these things when they are still small problems can save a LOT of time, money, and heartache in the future.

Rune of the Day: Uruz
You have the inner strength and power that you need to begin remaking yourself and your life today.  It may look like you are losing some things, but you have to let go of the old to make room for the new.  Besides, who wants to be held back by old baggage?
Tarot Card of the Day: 3 of Wands Reversed
No matter how much we crave instantaneous gratification sometimes we just have to wait for things to happen.  We can lay the groundwork, dot all the i's and cross the t's but then we have to wait for things to progress in their own time.  Don't stress yourself out with busywork today, just know you have done all you can and that the results will just take time.
The Two Together
Uruz paired with the reversed 3 of Wands is telling us that we not only need to make sacrifices in order to grow, we also need to have patience.  Although we feel the effects of the sacrifices instantly, and are reminded of them often, especially at first, it takes longer to see the growth that comes from those losses. Trying to rush the results we want never works, and can actually backfire on us.  Use patience today in all things.

Rune of the Day: Hagall
Things really aren't going well today at all; its like everything just started going wrong.  The more that things are going wrong, the more your outlook needs to change.  This is a wake up call from the Universe that you have been focusing on the wrong things.  As your attitudes and behaviors change in response, you will gain long term rewards. 
Tarot Card of the Day: Magician Reversed

 It doesn't seem to matter what you try to do today, it just isn't working out the way you had planned.  You almost feel like a klutz; everything you touch is breaking, being dropped, or just not working right to begin with.  Stop trying to force things to work, or to work out; just step back for today and let others handle things.  The more you try to do today, the more frustrated you will become. 
The Two Together
Hagall paired with the reversed Magician is clearly telling us that we should be prepared for things to go wrong today.  No matter how hard we try to make them right, we just are not going to be able to improve them very much today.  Don't try anything new or complicated today, just stick to your basic routine and ride today out.  Tomorrow may find you feeling much more capable.

Rune of the Day: Tir Reversed

Things don't always work out fairly in life, something you are experiencing first hand right now.  Its very possible that you have been so focused on reaching your goals that you haven't really noticed the cost, and the effect on those around you. That cost is being brought home today-when we neglect the big picture for our own ends, something will always step in to remind us of our place in the world.
Tarot Card of the Day: 8 of Wands

Things are happening very quickly for you today.  They are going to play out the way they are meant to, and any attempt to interfere, to change or influence how they happen could lead to some consequences you really don't want to deal with.  When things are changing this quickly, its usually best to just step back until the dust settles.
The Two Together

Tir reversed paired with the 8 of Wands is letting us know that once we set events in motion, we can't always control what happens next.  No matter how much we want something we need to be aware of how we go about getting it and how that affects others.  The less honorable our actions, no matter how good our intentions, the more intense the consequences for us. 

Saturday, July 26, 2014

Rune of the Day: Jera
Pay attention to the patterns in your life right now; the more you can see how your behavior tends to repeat, the more you can grow.  Being aware of these patterns and changing those that don't serve you will help you reach your goals more quickly.  It will still take time, very little worthwhile changes overnight, but you will see more progress as you change the patterns that have been holding you back.
Tarot Card of the Day: 8 of Pentacles Reversed
You need to stay focused on your goals; it may seem like you will never reach them but that is only true if you give up on them.  Take some time for yourself, some time to enjoy life.  Staying focused on your goals, doesn't mean never having time for anything else.  Enjoy life, relax a little, otherwise you will burn yourself out and lose focus. 
The Two Together
The pairing of Jera and the reversed 8 of Pentacles is urging us to have patience in working towards our goals.  Its telling us that we need to pay attention to other things in life and not just focus on where we want to end up.  So look at your life, make sure you have some balance in there, and notice those things that take you to negative places.  Once you know what those things are you can remove them from your life or change your reaction to them.  Most importantly, enjoy life while you are reaching for your goals: goals are those things that will enhance your life, there is no one thing that will magickally make it perfect.

Rune of the Day: Raidho Reversed
Flexibility needs to be your keyword for today; there will be a whole lot of stuff getting in the way of reaching your goal.  Adjust your path, perhaps tweak your goal, and know that you will get where you are supposed to be eventually.  These delays and problems, they're all meant to happen, a way of helping you grow.
Tarot Card of the Day: Ace of Cups
You may find yourself following your heart more than your head today, and not just in matters of romance.  Go ahead and let your emotions lead the way for a while, as long as it's your positive emotions you're following.  You just might find a whole new outlook on an old situation, one that clarifies a lot of things for you.
The Two Together
Raidho reversed paired with the Ace of Pentacles is telling us that one journey is ending while a new one is beginning.  With this pairing it is very likely that the journey you have been on emotionally is now morphing into a new, and more positive, adventure.  Stay open to whatever comes your way, but focus on the most positive choices you can make.

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Rune of the Day: Ing
There is a strong need to accomplish something today, perhaps even to create something new.  This can be anything from tying up loose ends in an ongoing project, to cleaning out your basement or attic, to just creating something new.  It's a desire to put things in order so that you can make a new start.  Don't fight it, just go with it: that energy might as well be put to good use.
Tarot Card of the Day: Tower
Some new facts may come to light today that shake the foundations of what you've believed in.  Things are seldom the way we think they are and different people can view the same situation very differently.  This awakening is something you needed to truly open your eyes.  You will have to adjust your perspective on life, but you will also be the stronger for this awakening.
The Two Together 
Ing paired with the Tower is telling us its time to rebuild our world, to look at what is really important in life and to focus ourselves on building a life around that.  Maybe it's time to become less materialistic, or more independent and less needy of others.  Perhaps we need to be more generous and more helpful to others.  Whatever your particular revelation, know that you have the strength to move on and to build a better life from it.

Rune of the Day: Lagaz Reversed
You may be so worried about doing the wrong thing today that you go to the other extreme and don't do anything at all.  It's very easy to spend so much time overthinking things that nothing gets accomplished.  Go with your gut today, pay attention to your instincts.  It's speaking to you for a reason, and ignoring it won't make it go away-generally it just comes back in more obvious, less pleasant, ways.
Tarot Card of the Day: 9 of Cups Reversed
Try not to spend so much time focused on what you don't have.  Enjoy the blessings that you do have right now.  There's nothing wrong with wanting more, and working for it, but don't let that be your sole focus in life.  Take some time to enjoy where you are right now, instead of worrying about where you want to be. 
The Two Together
Lagaz and the 9 of Cups, paired together and both reversed are sending a very clear message today.  Get out of your head and live in the moment, at least for today.  Don't focus on the what ifs, on what you don't have, on what might happen.  You may be so focused on what you want, and so afraid of making a mistake so that you don't get that outcome, that you block yourself from success.  Take that next step towards what you want today, if it doesn't work out, that just means the Universe is pointing you towards something better.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Rune of the Day: Perthro
Luck is on your side today, so take a chance on trying something new.  Learn more about the hidden world around us; focus on the big picture, not the everyday stuff that normally takes up so much of our time.  Opening yourself up to these bigger energies gives you the opportunity for bigger rewards, both material and not so material. 
Tarot Card of the Day: Star
You have faith that things will work out, if not for the best in your opinion, at least the way they are meant to.  That faith is rewarded today.  When you tell the Universe what you need, it is provided, so go ahead, let it know what you need,  (No, you really do not need a Porsche Carrera! lol)  and watch your blessings overflow.
The Two Together
Perthro paired with the Star is telling us that we are virtually unstoppable today.  Pretty much whatever we set our minds to, we have the blessings of the Universe.  Just be careful not to get greedy, they'll bless with extra, but not if its asked for out of greed-that's a quick way to end a run of luck!

Rune of the Day: Algiz
New people and new opportunities are coming your way.  Use caution until you know what you are dealing with.  Many of these will be positive but some bring complications and baggage that you won't want to deal with.  Treat them all with courtesy and respect, even those who make you uncomfortable.
Tarot Card of the Day: Justice Reversed
The past just may be catching up with you today.  Sooner or later all of our karmic debts come due, and that is especially true for you today.  Don't spend time feeling sorry for yourself, what's done is done.   Focus on doing better, starting now, and watch how that begins to better your karma almost instantly.
The Two Together
Algiz paired with reversed Justice is really warning us to be careful of new obligations we take on and new people we let into our life.  These may be great opportunities, and people with the best of intentions, but it's just possible that they will end up being the fly in the ointment.  This is not necessarily because they are negative, its because they are being put into our life to help us balance our karma.  Treating them well, regardless of a bad outcome, is a great first step to cleaning up negative karma.

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Rune of the Day: Sigel
Things are really going your way today, and when they don't you're in too good of a mood to let it bother you.  Everything is falling into place for you and you can sense it, so the occasional misstep doesn't even bother you.
Tarot Card of the Day: Ace of Cups Reversed
It would be very easy to get carried away by your emotions today, you almost feel caught up in a whirlwind.  Slow down just a bit, and let a little rationality creep in.  As much fun as it is to just act without thinking, there's is usually a cost to that in the long run.  Think before you make any big decisions today.
The Two Together
Things are going so well for us today, that we are tempted to just do what feels like fun without thinking through the consequences.  That's great on a small scale, but keep in mind that if we get carried away there will be consequences.  Indulge, splurge, enjoy, just don't go overboard today, keep your indulgences within reason.

Saturday, July 19, 2014

Rune of the Day: Uruz Reversed

You may be feeling a bit out of sorts today, not just physically, but emotionally as well.  That feeling that you've missed something, or there is something you should be doing.  There just might be something you have missed, an opportunity that you overlooked.  Just remember that if it is truly meant to be it will come along again, perhaps in a different way, but if its your path, you'll find your way to it.
Tarot Card of the Day: 10 of Wands Reversed

You may feel like all the hard work you've been doing is for nothing, that you will never get ahead.  Right now is not the time to give up.  You are so close to reaching your goals, you just have to stick with it a bit longer.  It's not easy, but the rewards will be worth it.
The Two Together

Reversed Uruz paired with the reversed 10 of Wands is telling us that even though we're feeling down, we need to keep going.  We've been following our path, our dreams, and now we're a little discouraged.  Maybe we missed an opportunity, maybe we're just tired of the seemingly endless routine: it's only by carrying on that we can reach our goal.  That goal is much closer than we can believe right now.


Friday, July 18, 2014

Rune of the Day: Isa
This is not a good day to try anything new, in fact it's a day to just let things sort of gel in your mind.  You won't make a lot of progress on anything, so don't push it. Sometimes you just have to slow down and let any recent changes in your life sink in.  That's what today's energy is all about, just letting things set.
Tarot Card of the Day: Judgment
Spend some time really looking at your life today, especially the spiritual aspect of it.  Make sure you're comfortable with where you're headed and how you're getting there.  If not, look at what needs to change and how you can best make those changes happen.  This is the stuff you do for you, not for anyone else, just for yourself and your own peace of mind and inner happiness. 
The Two Together
Isa paired with Judgment is urging us to take time out from our day to day lives and spend some time on the inner us.  Meditate, go spend some time in nature, whatever works for you to help you clear your head. Listen to what the Universe is trying to tell you, if it didn't have a message for us, it wouldn't be trying so hard to slow us down.

Thursday, July 17, 2014

Rune of the Day: Ehwaz

You are making real progress today in changing the things you don't like about your life.  These may not be huge steps, but they are still progress.  Remember, even small changes add up; often the changes are so small that we have to look back to realize how far we have come. 
Tarot Card of the Day: 4 of Swords

You need to take time for yourself today.  Whether things are going well, or you are overwhelmed with adversity, nothing will be solved if you let yourself burn out.  Take some down time and just reconnect with you.  It will help you keep things on an even keel.
The Two Together
Ehwaz paired with the 4 of Swords is cautioning us not to get carried away and rush any changes we want to make in our life.  It's easy to just keep pushing, especially when things are changing the way we want them to, but overdoing, or doing too quickly, rarely works out long term.  Take some time to decompress, to really focus on what has changed, and what still needs to be done. 

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Rune of the Day: Fehu
Things are really starting to come together for you today; they are definitely looking up financially.  You've got a bit of breathing room, but this is easily spendable income, not necessarily a long-term boon.  Spread some of it around, sharing and being grateful for your blessings are the best way to keep them coming.
Tarot Card of the Day: 3 of Cups
Spend some time with family and friends today, maybe reach out to someone you haven't seen in a while.  It's the people you have in your life that makes it rich, not the material things that you own.  Take the time to let them know how much they mean to you.
The Two Together
Fehu paired with the 3 of Cups: what a wonderful combination.  Enjoy both blessings both material and personal today.  Share your good fortune with those you love and care about, and who love and care about you.  Don't forget that those people are blessings also.
