Additional information about Today’s Rune, Sowilio is provided by The Runic Journey

sowulo : sun

Phonetic equivalent: s

DIVINATORY MEANINGS:
success, positive energy, increase, power, activity, fertility, health
MAGICAL USES:
energy, strength, success, healing, fertility
ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES:
Sunna
ANALYSIS:
The sun is held sacred by almost every religion in the world. Its light and warmth symbolize life and growth and all that is good. Norse cosmology describes the sun being driven around the heavens in a chariot and chased by a great wolf, which will devour it at Ragnarok. Throughout Indo-European Paganism, the sun has frequently been associated with the horse, often described as being carted around the sky by a horse. Both are symbolic of life and fertility, and are usually considered ‘masculine’ in polarity, although in Norse myth the chariot is driven by a girl. The swastika or sun wheel is a constant motif in rock carvings dating back to Neolithic times, and occurs throughout Europe and Asia. The sun rune itself is a variation on this symbol, and represents motion and energy.Sowulo marks the end of the second aett, and like wunjo represents success and glory. However, unlike the rest and relaxation of Valhalla, the sun is very much an active symbol. We have reached the end of the aett successfully, and the conclusion is a positive one, but in this case we are fully aware of the changing and transient nature of the universe. We can see the wolf at our heels, and we know that we must move on. Here, though, the journeyer may pause briefly in the warmth and light of the sun, absorbing and applying its energy to the work ahead. This time we won’t need to be blasted out of our safe position, but will rather choose to leave it in order to continue on the journey.

Your Daily Tarot Card for October 21st is Temperance

Temperance


 October 21st, 2014

What is traditionally known as the Temperance card is a reference to the Soul. Classically female, she is mixing up a blend of subtle energies for the evolution of the personality. One key to interpreting this card can be found in its title, a play on the process of tempering metals in a forge.

Metals must undergo extremes of temperature, folding and pounding, but the end product is infinitely superior to impure ore mined from the earth. In this image, the soul volunteers the ego for a cleansing and healing experience which may turn the personality inside-out, but which brings out the gold hidden within the heart. (This card is entitled “Art” in the Crowley deck.)

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for Wed., October 22

We seek to balance our lives now by creating harmony in relationships. The social Libra Moon reflects our need to connect with others for both personal and business purposes. Four planets in the sign of the Scales create a celestial traffic jam, forcing us to perceive everything in contrast to something else. We struggle in our attempts to make choices because we see both sides of any issue. Hopefully, fairness and kindness will win out in the end.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You have no easy outlet for your passions today, and could grow uncomfortable with the dynamics of the situation. Perhaps the real problem is that you can’t express your negative emotions. If you need to let off steam, it’s wise to find a less disruptive way to vent your feelings. You must get to the source, however, to discover a permanent solution to the current tension.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Minor details at work could pull your attention away from the list of things you should be doing. It may seem like you’re being drawn into working on unnecessary tasks and there is no way around them. However, approaching the situation from an either/or perspective won’t lead to a way out of your dilemma. Roll up your sleeves and willingly jump in to help; honoring your own needs is more rewarding once you’ve done your good deed for the day.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Dark and brooding feelings might still be lingering, yet you can begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Even if you try to experience pleasure, it may take another day or two to be completely free from your current stress. Meanwhile, don’t lose touch with your own inner voice or you could also lose your ability to make magic. Take a few deep breaths and slow down; transformation is a gradual process that requires time to unfold.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Staying at home sounds like an enticing idea today, but unfortunately, you probably need to wait until the weekend before you retreat into your shell. Make the most of your day by remaining cognizant of your emotions, even when it’s not appropriate to express them. This strategy may not fix the ills of the world, but it can help you be more pleasant to others, which in turn could improve your mood.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

The noise level in your hectic life kicks up another notch today. You’re in your element now as you’re swept up in a buzzing hive of activity, although the comings and goings of your fellow worker bees might be a tad distracting. Just remember that you also have your own obligations to fulfill on time. Sort out your priorities early in the day so you don’t miss out on what’s most important.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You could be feeling as if you are stuck in a corner with no clear way out. However, circumstances are in flux, and within a few days you may discover a viable escape out of your current dilemma. Try not to let minor annoyances dampen your spirit; negativity can hamper your overall journey in more ways than one. Luckily, positive thinking just might take you as far as you need to go.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

These are intense times as you are required to tie up loose ends while simultaneously visualizing the challenges ahead. The future seems to be arriving with great speed and the big question now is whether or not you are ready to put your plan into action. But don’t rock the boat by trying so hard to prove yourself. You have a much better chance of succeeding today if you don’t move too quickly. A steady hand and a healthy dose of determination will carry you to the next chapter of your life.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your preparations are coming to fruition and the big event is just around the bend. But your nerves are on edge today, and you aren’t sure how anything will work out. To make matters worse, just as you start seeing progress, your plans go into a stall. Don’t worry; you won’t crash land if you wait for circumstances to catch up with your desires. Impulsively switching your strategy is not a good idea; you’re making more headway than you realize now, even if everything is taking longer than you wish.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

A whirlwind of social events brightens your day with wonderful people; however, the hectic pace can be too crazy for even you fun-loving Archers. In fact, you may prefer to think about being with your friends rather than actually spending time with them now. Remember, the key is keeping a sense of balance. You don’t need to go into seclusion to maintain your composure. Just give yourself enough time alone to process your feelings so you can focus on the present moment when you’re in the company of others.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

It’s finally time to put your master plan into motion, even if you are currently motivated by the stress of a deadline. You’re ready to move from the realms of contemplation into the world of practicality. But don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need some. Your associates will most likely support your efforts for they know from experience how responsible and hardworking you can be when pursuing your ambitions. Just keep in mind that others may not jump in until invited. Don’t let your pride get in the way of your success.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Something is amiss at work now, and you cannot rest until you put your finger on the source of the problem. The circumstances may be a bit confusing, for on the surface all the pieces fit together quite nicely. Still, there are strange undercurrents and it is too early to tell which direction they will carry you. Even if you are ready to act today, wait until the tension dissipates and everything feels right. In moments of great uncertainty there is also great opportunity for positive change.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You might not find it easy to get in touch with your own heart today. In fact, you may be left feeling emotionally high and dry now, yet you are still craving the intensity of deep emotions. Fortunately, you Fish can create your own waters to swim in by conjuring up your ideal world in your imagination. However, this is just the first step on your journey to fulfillment. A solid plan and serious dedication are what you really need if you want to manifest your dreams.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, October 21

We do our best to live up to high standards while the Virgo Moon reflects our need for perfection. However, the Moon enters accommodating Libra at 7:11 am EDT, reminding us to seek balance, especially as we face extreme social and economic pressures. A shortage of time and resources plagues us as the Moon forms harsh aspects to potent Pluto and unforgiving Saturn. Thankfully, energetic Mars is in Sagittarius, empowering us to set long-term goals.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

A radical shift in relationship dynamics might mean that someone finally understands your point of view. But don’t assume that your friends will automatically encourage your independent behavior just because they listen to your story. Instead of pushing your luck, be thankful they accept you as you are rather than trying to change you. You won’t gain any further advantage if you continue to pull them outside of their current comfort zone. Knowing when to back off is essential to cultivating a harmonious atmosphere for everyone involved.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You Bulls don’t like to change your daily routine unless there is a compelling reason; it’s just easier to do things the same way as you did last time. However, the Moon’s shift into rational Libra and your 6th House of Habits motivates you to review the basics of your everyday behavior. Consider what works and what doesn’t before making improvements to your diet, exercise program and other lifestyle choices. It’s the littlest changes now that can have the most positive and lasting effect.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You are obsessed about pursuing a creative whim today, yet you can’t just abandon your current tasks. Tending to unfinished business sounds boring when compared with chasing your desires. However, ignoring previous obligations invites unnecessary trouble down the road. Nevertheless, you’ll feel better in the long run if you work now and save your self-expression for a more appropriate time. Maintaining your integrity at all costs makes you a hero in the eyes of others.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Acknowledge your inner Crab today by establishing a protective shell around you. A more positive way to create this bubble is to surround yourself with the love of special friends who nurture you and stand by you, no matter what. The cosmic energy is perfect now for settling into your cozy nest and appreciating your family. Even if you must head out into the world at some point to run errands or go the office, staying put for a while can be rejuvenating to your spirit. Home is where the heart is.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

The energy is rather exciting today, but you can get so caught up in the adrenaline rush that you keep piling more on your schedule. But your attraction to action doesn’t mean you have to squeeze everything into one day. Wake up early and get a head start on your chores; make your plans with the intent of establishing a healthy balance rather than creating more noise. Don’t go overboard when you finally decide to have some fun; for now, moderation is the key to your success.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You could become so consumed with your desire to acquire something today that your heart becomes intent on buying it. Normally, you’re prudent enough in your spending habits that it’s easy to pass up a bargain item if you don’t really need it. Wait a few days before making a final decision even if you feel very strongly about the purchase. Time works in your favor; gaining a bit of practical perspective now allows you to make a choice that will serve you well into the future.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may reach a point today when your path becomes clear enough to set a new course of action. You could experience a bit of anxiety once you get started, yet the stress actually acts as a catalyst that encourages you to make a choice. Fortunately, your future begins to make more sense once you eliminate unnecessary noise by fixing on a single direction. Paradoxically, narrowing your focus now actually increases your options over the days ahead.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your weariness could catch up with you today, especially if you feel as if you’re carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. Thankfully, your fate is not determined by your current actions alone, so don’t try to do everything all at once. Instead, find some time for contemplation where you have the privacy needed to refocus on your dreams. Sink into your feelings without trying to change them or bring others into your inner process. You will emerge from your little retreat with renewed vigor, ready to make the most of the challenges ahead.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You have your eyes set on the horizon but still have unfulfilled promises keeping you in the past. This period of renewal that began last month is coming to an end next week as energetic Mars leaves your farsighted sign. Use these last days wisely by imagining what you want to happen next. Make intentional visualization a part of your daily routine to empower you to manifest your dreams. Luckily, you can positively impact your future by changing how you see it.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may be preoccupied with professional issues today and your current role in the community. Although others naturally look to you for guidance, they don’t necessarily want you to take over. You are only needed you to listen, reflect upon what they have said and add your seasoned perspective. You can be an amazingly effective leader now by being part of the team instead of assuming authority and telling everyone what to do. Believe it or not, taking the time to help others also helps you.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You are eagerly anticipating what’s around the next corner, but it’s not healthy to live so far into the future that you detach from current circumstances. Spending quality time with your friends and family inspires you to refocus your attention on the present moment. Fortunately, you receive cosmic support from action-hero Mars now moving through adventurous Sagittarius. Your path to happiness is one of duality; you can live in the present while still dreaming of the future.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

There’s no reason to succumb to self-doubt today, even if something reminds you of your personal limitations. Old fears aren’t necessarily relevant to your present circumstances anyhow. But don’t keep your anxiety buried or it will continue to grow unchecked. Find a trusted friend or colleague and express your feelings. Simply discussing your concerns helps dissipate negativity before it causes any further trouble. No burden is too heavy when it’s shared.

Read this week’s personal love horoscope for your zodiac sign below!

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

A scintillating adventure with your partner on Monday will certainly put the sizzle back in your relationship. You might take a risk with your lover. Nothing over-the-top, but just exciting enough to make sure the sparks are alive and well. Then, on Thursday, you will certainly make strides in intimate matters. If you’re holding back any emotional baggage out of fear that revealing it will drive your partner away, now is the time to change your perspective. A willingness to show your vulnerability is the only way to ensure you’re in a rock solid partnership.

 

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Expect major changes in your love life this week. Between a potent Solar Eclipse in your relationship sector on Thursday and Venus entering the same part of your chart, you’ll feel more than ready to take your relationship to the next level. Responsibility in matters of the heart has been a running theme for you over the last couple of years. The lessons in love might have been difficult at times, but overall you’ve learned what you truly want and deserve. Now you might be ready for that commitment — one that will stand the test of time.

 

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You’ll have plenty of energy to “play” with your partner on Monday. The two of you might decide to go on a special date — maybe even ditching work. You’ll enjoy a spontaneous larger-than-life show of affection from your lover early in the week, so be sure to drink it up! If single, an office romance may start to blossom after Thursday. Developments in this arena may continue throughout November 16. Only you can decide if it’s worth the office cooler gossip!

 

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Love is in the air! Not the easy, breezy type of romance, but the deep, “see into your soul” love affair. This will be emotionally-charged, but also lucky for you because it’s exactly how you like it. If single, your prospects to meet that special someone are off the charts after Thursday! You’ll be attracted to the mysterious, silent type now — the man or woman who prefers to fly under the radar. Knowing this, don’t be surprised if the new object of your affection has already been checking you out for quite some time.

 

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Words can have incredible sex appeal, and this week you’ll be able to use your mind and voice to get whatever you want in the romance department. You’ll have little trouble asking your lover for exactly what you know fires you up in the bedroom. Happily, he or she will be more than willing to oblige any request. After Thursday, you and your partner might enjoy spending more time with family or just keeping things private in the comfort of your home.

 

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Nothing monumental might happen in your love life this week — until Sunday, that is. Then, suddenly you’ll find your libido is off the charts, you’re motivated to pursue pleasure in all ways that bring you joy, and you’re ready to prioritize romance! That’s because on Sunday, and until December 4, Mars, the planet of motivation and sex drive, will enter the area of your chart that rules true love, carefree fun and sex. This will be a time you’ll surely remember as F-U-N. Go on, get into the groove!

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

The key to your love life these days is your social life. Meeting new and exciting people has never been easier, thanks to lucky Jupiter moving through your friendship and group sector. You might have considered joining one or more new organizations, and if so now will be an ideal time to take the plunge. There’s every indication that romantic potential between you and a pal can blossom now. Or, someone you meet through one of your affiliations may capture your heart. Mingle!

 

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Privacy is important to you on an average week, Scorpio, but these days you’re especially careful to keep your love life under wraps. It’s not necessarily because you’re having a clandestine affair and need to be discreet (although that is a possibility). What’s more likely is that you and your lover require more alone time than usual, and if so be sure to honor it. Your magnetism will be enhanced, thanks to a potent Solar Eclipse in your sign on Thursday, along with Venus entering Scorpio. Use it well.

 

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

It’ll be impossible for your lover or love interest to ignore you this week. With Mars in your sign until Sunday, make the most of this last stretch, and be sure to pursue the object of your affection with all the zeal and bravado you have! On Monday, a new romance can get off the ground easily. After Thursday, you might crave extra privacy when it comes to matters of the heart. Expect that trend to continue until November 16.

 

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

If your love life has been lackluster recently, expect things to change this week. On Thursday, your social life will get a major overhaul, and because of the changes you’ll make with the company you keep, you’ll open up new doors to meet exciting, magnetic friends. One of these friends may turn into a lover or introduce you to someone special. After Sunday, you’ll find it easier to pursue the object of your desire. Yes!

 

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

There will be so much happening in the career department for you this week that you may decide to put romantic matters on the back burner altogether. Although you’ll have extraordinary developments professionally, after Thursday consider reserving early in the week for personal pleasure. On Monday, the cosmic lovers, Venus and Mars, will enjoy a delicious connection that can be like a breath of fresh air in your relationship. Expand your horizons with your mate and do something adventurous. You won’t regret it.

 

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

If single, your prospects for romance become more tied to your educational and spiritual pursuits after Thursday. In fact, until November 16 you might meet someone connected to a class you’re taking, or at a religious function. Even if you’re not particularly religious this could be an event you’re invited to, so be sure to go. Another possibility is that you’ll meet someone through your travels if you have a trip planned in the coming weeks. This person will captivate you because of his or her different background, so remain open minded.

Libra-Scorpio cuspers, born between the signs of Libra and Scorpio, are ruled by two passionate planets, Venus and Pluto, which is a super sexy combination. In fact, this cusper’s intellect, drive, flamboyance and sexuality may be too much for some others to handle!

These individuals have Libra’s great judgment and Scorpio’s precision, which makes them a force to be reckoned with. They have such big personalities and are so accomplished, in fact, they must watch out for becoming arrogant or insisting on doing everything their own way.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, October 21

Racing out of the starting gate won’t give you a true head-start when the Moon is void in Virgo. Wait until the lunar shift into airy, affable Libra at 4:13AM to make the most of your day. Two key themes during this lunar transit are improving the quality of your key relationships and trying out new approaches in the fine and graphic arts. If you need to win friends and influence people, take a gentle and peaceful approach rather than being heavy-handed. Right now the path to greater happiness in primary partnerships is via sensitivity — particularly as Venus forms a subtle and yet still supportive, 30-degree liaison with productivity-builder Ceres (3:12PM) while the Sun connects deeply with healing-maestro Chiron (7:08PM) by way of a 135-degree aspect. Brainstorms ought to be plentiful this evening and as Tuesday night morphs into Wednesday morning since Pallas in Scorpio forges an inspirational, 72-degree rapport with Jupiter in Leo (12:21AM tomorrow). These two celestial bodies are celebrated in ancient Roman and Greek mythology where Pallas-Athena is born full-armored from her father Jupiter-Zeus. This goddess is her father’s brain-child and, in the astrological code over the millennia, a positive Pallas-Jupiter connection can equate with gaining strength as a problem-solver, strategist, and all-around genius. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
