Rune of the Day: Othala
Your have a real sense of security and belonging in your life. You've worked hard to get where you are; and now both friends and family turn to you for help, in various forms, from time to time. Remember that as others helped you obtain your goals, it's your turn to help those coming behind you to reach their dreams. Do this willingly, the more positive you put into the world, the more positive comes back to you.
Tarot Card of the Day: Emperor Reversed
You may feel as if your life is out of your control, as if it's what everyone else needs that matters and not what you want. Remember everyone has their own priorities, just keep yours straight and know when to tell someone that you can't do something. Just because they want you to do something, doesn't mean you have to, or that you have to do it on their time frame.
The Two Together
Othala paired with the Emperor reversed is reminding us to keep balance in our life. We should help others when we can, especially those who are a part of our lives, but not at the cost of our own happiness. We need to remember where and who we came from, and help those who deserve it, but we are not obligated to help anyone who isn't trying to help themselves. We aren't responsible for others' happiness and can't get sucked into believing that we are.
