Today’s Card is the Fool (New Beginnings) and the rune is Elhaz (Elk/Moose/Protection/spiritual connections).
In many ways this reading is a breath of fresh air, because it shows that energies are shifting and may be thinking about going into a new cycle after the stuck energy of the last few weeks.
The Fool is a young man starting out on his journey all bright-eyed and eager to do new things; his only problem is he is so busy listening to his own music that he can’t see where he is going. So, he may be about to write the next top-40 musical hit or he may smash right into a tree (or in some decks walk off a cliff).
Now sometimes we need to “walk off cliffs” (into the unknown) and that may be part of this reading, at least for individuals and some larger issues as well.
That’s because the Elhaz (Elk or Moose in the North lands) is both protection (which The Fool really needs) but also is sometimes thought to represent man reaching his arms towards the heavens and asking for guidance/connections/protections/answers.
This usual card-rune combination, suggests to me that today is a day when strong spiritual connections and journeys can be made. When today is a good day (unlike yesterday) to embark on new projects, and explore new ideas, undertake serious shamanic or meditative journeys or begin new physical world events.
However, there is a hint for the larger world/western world reading that to go forward (make progress) there is a great need for Peoples/Tribes/Nations to look to a source beyond themselves for “protection.” Making connections between both the “seen” and the “unseen worlds” and/or Divine Guidance.
A note of caution on this is that there is also an alternative way of reading this combination that I think may also be true in some cases and this the “foolish” or “unwise” use/seeking of such “unseen” powers both practical and spiritual. I’m getting a faint (but certain) impression of children (young “fools”) playing with fires, that they don’t understand.
These could be real-world weapons or something less material but no less deadly if used in an inappropriate or untrained manner.
There is likely to be a lot of wild “new” energy out there today and this should always be tapped into with clear thinking, rather than a “foolish” jumping to conclusions.
Still, for individuals this can be a fantastic day of new explorations and divine/other world guidance and interaction.
Most of all, it is a good day for protection workings of all sorts, a good day to ward your house and property and a fantastic day for prayer and meditation.
Just be careful to keep you eyes open and pay attention to the other things going on in the world and in your life.
Play your own music, but keep your eyes open while you finger the notes.
That’s your card and rune for today, remember you can get your cards and runes today or any day by getting a personal reading.
