Rune of the Day: Uruz
You've been wondering if you really have it in you to make some changes that are long overdue.  You have everything you need to make these changes you just need to go for it.  You are more than capable of handling any challenges that come your way.  You have both the inner and the physical strength that you need.  Change is never easy, but it is the only thing that opens us up to better things.
Tarot Card of the Day: 2 of Wands

You must choose a direction to take your life in, and there is no easy way to choose-the future is yet to be determined.  Both paths will have their pluses and minuses, sometimes you just have to go on instinct alone.  This is one of those times-you can only remain stationary for so long and then a new path is chosen for you.  That is usually a much less pleasant experience than choosing on your own.
The Two Together

 Uruz paired with the 2 of Wands is telling us that its time to move on in our lives.  There are things that we need to change, new directions we need to explore.  We've been putting this off long enough, either through fear of change, thinking we're not capable of making these changes, or perhaps just insecurity that we don't deserve that better life.  We absolutely do deserve it, now we just have to go make it happen.

Rune of the Day: Perthro
Go with your gut today, follow you hunches, listen to your intuition.  Perthro is all about the hidden, the unexpected, and about the rewards that come to those who look for and follow that path.  So go ahead and take a chance on something different today: you never know how well you may be rewarded.
Tarot Card of the Day: Page of Wands
You've been slowly working towards starting something new: learning about it, studying it, just generally feeling things out.  Now is the time to take that first step or two: you are ready, you're as prepared as you can be, you just need to gather your courage and jump.  
The Two Together
Perthro paired with the Page of Wands is telling us to listen to our gut, to go ahead and do that thing we've been wanting to do. We're ready, we've just been hesitating, most likely at least a little bit out of fear; now is the time to make the leap.  The Page is telling us we're ready and Perthro is saying luck and knowledge are on our side.  What more could we ask the Universe for?

Rune of the Day: Wunjo
  Take the time to rejoice in your accomplishments and to just enjoy being you.  This happiness also brings you a new energy, a new sense of peace and security-enjoy them. You are at peace with the world today; really aware of just how blessed you truly are. 

Tarot Card of the Day: Ace of Cups Reversed

You have lots of new ideas, new things you would like to try.  Be careful not to get so caught up in the idea of trying things that you don't spend enough time with any one idea to really develop it. Knowing it a little bit about many things seldom is as useful as knowing a lot about a few things.
The Two Together

Wunjo paired with the reversed Ace of Swords is telling us that we will find the silver lining in the cloud today.  Even though not all, or perhaps not any, of our ideas will work out the way we had planned, at least one of them will work out in such a way that we gain a new, more positive perspective on our lives. This new outlook more than makes up for the things we've tried that haven't worked out.

Rune of the Day: Othala

Success isn't measured just by how much money you have or how successful you are. It is also measured in how respected you are, how loved you are, how much you give to your community.  Remember this today, and try not to focus on just the material things in life, but on all the riches that you have.
Tarot Card of the Day: 4 of Cups

Although it is great to have dreams, don't get so focused on an idealized vision that you lose track of all the blessings you have around you.  Many times what is already within our reach is all we need to bring us great joy, if we would only see it.
The Two Together
Othala paired with the 4 of Cups is reminding us that family, friends, and community are as important as financial riches.  We often get so caught up in the rat race of day to day living that we don't take the time to enjoy those people who are a part of our lives.  Money is something that can always be earned, but time spent with loved ones is a limited commodity.

Rune of the Day: Lagaz

Listen to your emotions and your intuition today, they will be speaking strongly to you. This is where your creativity comes from, your planning, its how you make your dreams come true.  So listen hard, there's a message trying to get through today.
Tarot Card of the Day: Knight of Wands

 You are ready to go after what you want in life, to really seize the bull by the horns.  Follow your dreams and you have the ability to turn them into reality.  With the energy of the Knight, you certainly have the drive to get it all done today.

The Two Together

Lagaz paired with the Knight of Wands is telling us its time to go after what we want in life, to follow our dreams.  We're also being reminded to listen to our emotions, our intuition, and to use our creativity in reaching those goals.  Don't be so fixated on one path that you ignore the little whispers telling you to try a different way-those whispers might get you where you really need to go.

Rune of the Day: Daeg
More and more things in your life have  been becoming clear to you lately, this continues today.  Keep acting on these new realizations, you can make your life into pretty much anything you want it to be: the more you understand of how things interconnect in your life and the world, the bigger the changes you can make.
Tarot Card of the Day: Queen of Cups Reversed
You care deeply about others and that's a wonderful thing; just be careful not to let your concerns overshadow reality.  Sometimes you worry so much about your loved ones that you lose sight of the fact that its their life. They have to choose their own path, even if you see it as being full of pitfalls.  Hope for the best for them, they may just be willing to take a risk that you wouldn't.    
The Two Together
Daeg paired with the reversed Queen of Cups is telling us that we need to make changes in our lives, that's part of growing.  We just have to remember that not everyone is ready to make these changes-we have to do what's right for us and let others do what's right for them.  We can't force others to grow, (or grow up), we just need to be the best that we can for ourselves.

Rune of the Day: Ing
 You really want to get things done today, to make a new start on your old to do list.  Keep that energy focused on doing things that help you reach your goals; not just on doing something because somebody said its a good idea.  If something doesn't speak to you, think long and hard about whether or not you need to make it a priority.

Tarot Card of the Day: Queen of Swords
You really want to get your house in order today, and your attitude is pretty much take no prisoners.  This is a noble ambition, just remember that others have the right to different opinions and priorities than yours.  Be careful not to be too domineering today, and try to be understanding if someone just isn't on the same page as you today.
The Two Together
The pairing of Ing and the Queen of Swords emphasizes our desire to get things done, to make some real progress in changing, organizing, cleaning up our lives.  This may be as simple as cleaning out a closet, or as complicated as going back to school.  Whatever the goal is for today, make sure its something that has a real benefit (not just busywork), and we need to have patience when others are not as motivated as we are.  They have their own paths to walk.

Rune of the Day: Kenaz
 You may feel like the world itself is against you today, and so you're just going to fight.  Instead of lashing out try to look at things from a different perspective instead.  Often what feels like an attack to one person, is just someone else looking out for themselves.  Working together may just get you both what you want.

Tarot Card of the Day 9 of Cups Reversed
You may be at odds with everything going on around you today.  Things just aren't falling into place like they have been, little things seem much more important than they really are.  Take a look around, you've just lost sight of how blessed your life truly is.  Do something nice for someone who is truly struggling; it will help you keep your struggles in perspective.
The Two Together
Kenaz and the 9 of Cups paired together and both reversed are telling us that today will not go smoothly.  We cannot change what happens today, but how we react to it, and how we look at it, is completely up to us.  We can lash out at everyone and everything, or accept any setbacks as challenges.  Getting out of our own heads will make all the difference in how stressed we are by the end of the day.
