Rune of the Day: Ansuz Reversed
Pay close attention to what people say to you today, and be very careful with your own words also. We all view the world through our past experiences, and when we are dealing with people who have had a very different set of experiences it's easy for misunderstandings to happen. Instead of laying blame, take this opportunity to learn about others and their journey through life. The more understanding we develop, the better we can communicate what we want and need.
Tarot Card of the Day: 6 of Swords Reversed
Take time to carefully consider your options, and their possible consequences, before you act on any difficulties today. It may seem like just tackling an issue head on is the best way to deal with it, but sometimes just stepping back and waiting, or even removing yourself from the situation entirely is best. Remember it's not up to you to solve every problem; sometimes you need to let others take the lead.
The Two Together
The pairing of Ansuz with the 6 of Swords, both reversed, is telling us not to try to be the ones to fix any misunderstandings today. We might just be able to learn more by observing how others deal with difficult situations than we can by rushing in to fix things ourselves. Sometimes it really is best to just step back and let the chips fall where they may.
