Rune of the Day: Lagaz
Listen to your intuition today, let your imagination run away with you. Sometimes we need to give our mind free reign for a while so we can recharge, so we can take a mental break from all the day to day drudgery. It's only by stepping back from our lives a bit that we can see what needs to change, what has been holding us back.
Tarot Card of the Day: 9 of Wands Reversed
We all need to re-evaluate ourselves every once in a while, to take a look at where we are in life and, more importantly, how we've gotten there. Don't spend too much time focusing on any mistakes you've made though. Reflecting on your mistakes and how to do better is how we grow, but focusing too much on them and withdrawing because of them, accomplishes nothing and just leaves you in a bad place emotionally.
The Two Together
The pairing of Lagaz with the reversed 9 of Wands is telling us to listen to ourselves, to spend some time really thinking about what we want from life and what will make us happy. The combination also reminds us that spending too much time thinking and too little time doing accomplishes nothing, except perhaps making us feel less worthwhile in the long run. After all, even if we have made mistakes, brooding on them does nothing to fix them, or to atone for them.
