Rune of the Day: Ehwaz
Today is a day of action, a day to not just get things done, but to do the groundwork for whatever changes you want to make in your life. The new year is a time for many people to begin making changes; make sure you have laid a good foundation for these changes – don’t just say I’m going on a diet-throw out all the junk food in the house first, stock up on healthy food, then start your diet. The better our preparation, the more likely our chances of success.
Tarot Card of the Day: 8 of Wands
Things may be moving kind of quickly today, you may find that you have more to do than you had realized. Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed by any changes that are happening right now. It’s a new year and almost everyone is trying to make at least small changes in their life. Don’t accept any extra responsibilities that others may try to give you, unless you are willing to do them. It’s not your job to make everyone else’s life easier.
The Two Together
The pairing of Ehwaz and the 8 of Wands emphasizes that this will be a busy day with a lot of things to do. Lots of things are changing, many of them possibly at your own initiative. Remember that not everything has to be done at once. It is perfectly okay to take smaller steps, to just make small bits of progress at a time, or even to leave some things for tomorrow-just make sure that you do tackle them tomorrow.
