Rune of the Day: Uruz Reversed
You may feel a bit under the weather today, or maybe just a bit out of sorts or distracted.  Try to focus on what's causing the distress: a physical ailment, a virus, or just a general malaise.  There is always an underlying cause to these things: not enough rest, poor diet, too much stress. All of these come down to the same thing-not taking care of yourself.  Take the time today to put yourself in first place, pamper yourself a bit.  It may not cure you, but it's sure to help at least for a bit.
Tarot Card of the Day: 5 of Pentacles
It's very easy to become so focused on something that you lose perspective.  Perhaps you have a project at home or work that you are desperate to finish: don't be so single-minded that you don't notice when someone around you needs help.  Also be sure to take care of yourself-get enough sleep and eat well.  Blocking out the needs of others or yourself just to reach a goal only drags you down in the long run.
The Two Together
Uruz reversed paired with the 2 of Pentacles is telling us that our own needs are just as important as those of anyone or anything else. We need to take care of ourselves first, or we will be no good to anyone at all. No matter what we have going on our health, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual has to be our priority. 
So everyone reading this-go do what I am not doing today and take some time for yourself. I'm looking forward to doing that late tomorrow when I'm done moving and have some time off from work!

Rune of the Day: Perthro Reversed
Expect the unexpected today; it may very well be a day full of surprises, both pleasant and not so pleasant. This may be a day that secrets come to the surface, remember things are usually kept quiet so that they don't hurt someone. Try not to judge others any more harshly than you would want them to judge you.
Tarot Card of the Day: 7 of Cups Reversed
Really go after what you want today; with your determination and willpower you are almost certain to achieve success.  You're very close to reaching your goals now; this is definitely not the time to stop. Give it that little extra and just watch what happens.
The Two Together
Pethro and the 7 of Cups paired and reversed is telling us not to let outside distractions keep us from our goals. It's easy to lose track of some things when we are focused on reaching a certain objective, especially the closer we get to success.  Meanwhile, life has been going on around us. Sometimes that part of life comes crashing into our awareness, usually when we least expect it. Although we must deal with that too, keeping a balance is necessary-we can't let ourselves just drop what we have been working towards because another situation needs our attention. Stay focused and things will work out as they should.

Rune of the Day: Hagall

Things are changing and changing quickly; you may even feel somewhat off balance, as if your life is out of control.  Keep your eye on the bigger picture, although it may feel like chaos, in reality you are being freed from things which will hold you back, or possibly even harm you in the future. 
Tarot Card of the Day: 5 of Wands Reversed
The more complicated things become, the more likely they are to fall apart.  Try to simplify things today, don't let your thoughts get too far ahead of what's really happening in any given situation. View what's happening in the most basic perspective that you can, and make your decisions from that place-not based on many layers of what ifs.
The Two Together
It's all about perspective today, about how we view what is happening in our lives.  So often, we make things much more complicated than they really are, we need to focus on living in the moment.  Sometimes the moment may be little hectic or unsettled, at those times we need to find our inner peace and remember that everything happens for a reason.

Rune of the Day: Isa
This is not a day to try anything new.  It may be a good time to look at what you have done recently and change things that may not resonate with you as strongly on second viewing. Progress is somewhat impeded today, you'll find lots of roadblocks if you try to do too much. The Universe is telling you to stop, listening is always a good idea.
Tarot Card of the Day: Moon Reversed
You may find yourself so focused on the day to day practicalities of life that you're forgetting to dream, to imagine what could be. Although the real world can sometimes (okay, often) seem overwhelming, you need to step away from it every once in a while. Take time to fantasize, to imagine your ideal reality; everyone needs a break sometime!
The Two Together
Isa paired with the reversed Moon is encouraging us to stop what we have been doing, to take a break from the daily rat race.  We need to take a step back and take some time for ourselves: maybe some pampering, something athletic, something creative; whatever it is that we enjoy we need to take some time to do that today. Enjoy yourself!!

Rune of the Day: Kenaz Reversed
Try to look at the world from a different angle today.  
It's easy to get so caught up in your own perceptions that you just dismiss any other viewpoints.  Take the time to learn why others may see things differently than you do-the more you reach out to and learn from others the more you will grow.

Tarot Card of the Day: 3 of Pentacles Reversed
Sometimes no matter how hard you try to achieve something, you just can't seem to reach that goal. This may be a fear of success, it may be the Universe putting blocks in your way to help you learn and grow, or it may be that you are not meant to attain that particular objective.  Try not to get caught up in negativity but focus on what you are learning while you reach for your goal.

The Two Together
Kenaz and the 3 of Pentacles both reversed are telling us that it is time to really look at what our goals are; to take a step back and reevaluate what it is we are trying to accomplish, and if it is worth the effort we’ve have been putting in to it. We may have become so closed-minded on this goal that we just aren’t seeing the signs telling us to step away. We need to take a long, hard look at what we’ve been doing, look at it with fresh eyes, and decide if it still seems worthwhile.

Rune of the Day: Ing
 You're ready to make a new beginning today; to release all your old baggage and start something different. You have let go of whatever has been holding you back, releasing the negativity so that you can unleash your energy and create a new reality for yourself.  This is an especially productive and fertile time,  just be sure to channel some of this energy and passion into keeping your house in order; don't use it all on new ventures.

Tarot Card of the Day: Ace of Pentacles
You've found a new sense of inner peace, mainly because you have finally discovered what makes you truly content.  It's like getting your heart's desire, the desire that you didn't even know you had. Now that you have this new-found happiness the cherry on top just might be a new relationship.  That is certainly a possibility for today, whether it be a friendship, business partnership or even a new romance.
The Two Together
Ing paired with the Ace of Cups is telling us that we have completed one part of our journey in this life and it is time to start a new path.  We have learned the lessons we needed to learn, and accomplished those things that we were meant to accomplish; now it is time to move on to new knowledge and new goals.  These challenges are approached with more serenity than before, as we are now more comfortable with ourselves.
