However, since the main association of the Elk Rune is with the Protective/Protection/Hands upraised in Prayer/Standing man, I am more inclined to read the Father card today as a protective card, than as a symbol for something more sinister.
I think there are still echoes in this card/energy of Germany trying to be a “father” to everyone in the EU (a stern, authoritarian and compelling father) but that isn’t the main aspect that is likely to show up today.
Instead, with the Protective Rune Elhaz at his side, today’s Father energy feels more like that shown on the card, the Father as benevolent, caring and protective figure who teaches his son the skills he will need to hunt and be a full adult when he’s grown up. In this aspect, The Father figure is pointing towards the correct way for this son to shoot his arrow aka the Right Path, rather than then shooting arrows off into the wind.
My sense is that today we may see stories in the MSM about a Father/Father Figure/Leader who actually comes out and suggests some ideas or plans which if followed, might actually help guide the West/Europe/North America in the way that get things going forward in a good and useful way.
There is a certain sense of “Father of the Country” coming out here, the issue being I’m not picking up on exactly which country so it may be “counties” as a group that the energy is working on.
Of course, the flip side of this could be a temptation to extreme nationalism that does not allow for compromise (Dad can be like that sometimes too) so refusal to negotiate may also be in the news today (Iran/Syria/Middle East feels a bit like this actually).
Otherwise, a really good day for individuals with that wonderful protective aspect of the Father energy helping to make us feel safe, guided and heading in the right direction. A good day to learn new skills, teach others and to plan ahead.
That’s your card (and rune) of the day, remember you can get your cards (or runes) today or any day by getting a personal reading.
