Today’s Card is Fortune and the Rune of the Day is Wunjo (Joy/Clan Banner).
While this reading seems to be in direct opposition to the over-all energy of the week; I think what it is actually saying is that something occurring late this week will bring great joy and good fortune to a certain group of people.
There is a hint into who those people are, in the Wunjo rune stave; because in addition to most common translation as Joy; this also symbolizes the Clan Banner or the Family Flag.
I think this is very important here and I’m being drawn to the concept of Old Fortunes/Old Families experiencing Joy this weekend.
I believe this is because many of those coming from the older seats of money and power feel that something is happening now (perhaps even being manipulated?) that will preserve their personal wealth and fortunes, no matter what happens to everyone else.
This may or may not actually be the case in the long-term, but the energy is certainly there today for such families/tribes/clans to pull this off for today.
Also, Fortune means more than just money, it is about the winding pathways (back and forth) that govern the seeking of treasure/wealth/rewards as a life path. For the adept (or wise person) this treasure is spiritual instead of (or at least in addition to) physical gold, silver or cash.
So, this card may also indicate that the way is clear for seeking both sorts of “old” treasure – the type that is material and that which is in the spiritual realms as well.
For headlines today, look for unusual contracts, treaties or stories about currencies; also a good day for a stock market rise (although it is very hard to know just what is “best” for the Old Money Crowd), also events like bank mergers, huge corporate deals, tax havens or even international “agreements” about certain types of wealth/currency/money issues.
There may also be just “human interest” types of stories today that dwell on fortunes, old money, royalty, blood-lines etc. Anything that brings up the very old, the very posh and the deeply wealthy; including marriages and award ceremonies.
Now, the really good news is, not only the “old money” people can play with this energy on a day like this. Everyone can pay attention to this sudden (if perhaps brief) twist in the energies towards prosperity, fortune and joy. This is a great day to get your finances taken care of, buy an (inexpensive) lottery ticket, spend a gift certificate or work towards long-term goals and plans (fortunes).
Unlike the last few days, THIS is the day during this time period when you can safely sign contracts, manage agreements, enter partnerships and enjoy interaction with your fellow human beings. You still need to be very careful, because the over-all energies for this time period are rather dark when it comes to money, wealth and long-term partnerships – but for today, we get a bit of a reprieve, which individuals can use to their full advantage.
Also, today is a wonderful day to experience “joy” with friends and family; celebrating the “good fortune” of having such people in our lives. An old rune poem talks about “Man is the Joy of Man” in reference to the Manaaz (Man) rune-stave, which is made of two Wujo rune-staves put together.
The Elder Folk seem to have know where true joy and wealth come from; and chose a double-joy rune to symbolize human love and interaction.
So, enjoy today as much as possible and try not to fret about what the “Old Money” is doing, unless you are a high-level banker or member of such a “tribe” yourself, there is going to be very little you can do about it anyway.
Instead, use the same energy to add joy and happiness to your own life – remember Fortune is also a spiritual state of being – so work on organizing your personal treasure hoard with meditation and some special time with those you love best.
That is your card and rune for today, remember you can get your cards and runes today or any day by getting a reading.
