The rune for today is Raidho, or Rad (R: Wagon or chariot.) Travel, both in physical terms and those of lifestyle direction. A journey, vacation, relocation, evolution, change of place or setting. Seeing a larger perspective. Seeing the right move for you to make and deciding upon it. Personal rhythm, world rhythm, dance of life. Birds fly south, but return in the spring to their native places. Travel far and you can bring together many threads in your life. The situation most important for you now is probably to do with traveling – either a journey you are already making or one which you wish to make. Another important concern is your desire to connect and communicate with people who are far away. Often, the goal of this kind of travel is an event or an achievement which you attain at the end of the journey. For example, this may be some kind of knowledge which you wish to attain. This rune reminds you that the final purpose of all traveling is to integrate new experience with past experience and get a better sense of your life, so that you see yourself in a wider perspective. If you forget this purpose, you may easily lose yourself in new impressions and become ambiguous and confused. You may feel a need to divide your efforts into several areas in order to succeed with a number of different concerns. The main thing is not to separate but to unify different parts of your life by taking into account new possibilities and understanding.
Raidho Reversed or Merkstave: Crisis, rigidity, stasis, injustice, irrationality. Disruption, dislocation, demotion, delusion, possibly a death.
As with all, take what resonates with you and disregard the rest.
