|Spirit Runes are most commonly used for questions about mysticism, spirituality, and religion. Algiz can be easily recognized as the antlers of the elk that it represents. The elk can represent victory, but is much more appropriately associated with the thrill of the hunt itself. This rune therefore can portend vigor and success in active endeavors. Also, this rune seems symbolic of a hand with outstretched fingers – a protective hand. This hand may suggest that you will be shielded from things negative – the problems still exist, you are spared the brunt of their force.|
General Meaning: Following brings supreme success. You may not be able to change the direction of the wind, but by frequently adjusting your sails, you can arrive at your destination.
Those who would acquire a following must speak the language of their followers. Those who would be loved must become the envisioned lover of their beloved. Those who would prosper must bend with natural forces and the pressures of society. In matters of principle, stand firm; in matters of style and taste, swim with the current.
In all human affairs, change is constant. In order to stay fresh, old ideas and patterns must continually be discarded in favor of new ones. Only by being adaptable to the demands of the time can the highest good emerge. Only by adjusting to changing circumstances can you prosper. Remain flexible, and you will gain the confidence of those around you. Bend and you shall not break.
This Tarot Deck: Gendron
Huge wheels and frisky steeds speed the rate at which the driver’s willpower can be realized. This kind of charge makes more of the world accessible to anyone ambitious enough to seize the Chariot’s reins. But there is danger in this feeling of freedom, because of the increased rate of change and its power to magnify mistakes in judgment. As a seasoned warrior, the Charioteer is called upon to be extra attentive to the way ahead.
Your overconfidence can create problems today, unless you scale back your ambitions a bit. Unfortunately, it’s hard to tell where to draw the line between reality and fantasy, making your decisions even more difficult. Widening your spiritual horizons is easy now; maintaining a solid connection with the mundane world at the same time is more difficult, yet also worth the effort.
Your current fascination with philosophy tempts you to believe that you have discovered the meaning of life. Unfortunately, others might see things differently today, believing that you are evading the important issues by using big words and talking about complex ideas that are removed from what’s actually happening. Although your search for truth may appear cavalier, there’s no need to change anything now as long as you’re respectful to the reactions of those around you.
Thankfully, the pace of life may be a bit slower today, but you still wish that things would return to normal. Still, you have a chance to review your recent experiences and think about what to do next. Just remember that there is a magnifying lens between you and your world now, making everything appear bigger, better or more important than it truly is. Giving yourself a reality check is healthier than waiting for someone else to do it for you.
Today your false sense of optimism may have you believing that anything you can imagine will come true. Although your positive attitude might be sufficient to tip the scales in your favor, there are other things that should be considered, too. It’s not necessary to give up as long as you’re willing to face the current difficulties. Fortunately, it will be easier to overcome any obstacles in your path once you first acknowledge them.
You could be at the top of your game now, yet still may be insecure about a close relationship because you’re not seeing the situation in its true light. The truth is that your self-image could suffer if you spend too much time analyzing what’s going on. You’re probably more creative and refined than you realize now. Change your attitude by deciding to project yourself into the future instead of looking back into the past.
Your innate tendency to be discriminating is always useful, but now it can turn into an obsession and get in the way of your happiness. You may grow uncomfortable with your current starry-eyed visions and decide to rein in your fantasies. Unfortunately, you could pull back so far that your caution causes you to miss out on a lovely opportunity. You don’t need to lower your standards as long as you remain open to starting small and growing from there.
You may have unresolved issues that linger from a recent emotional meltdown. Although your feelings probably won’t be put to rest, you have a chance to raise your game to a higher level now. Instead of struggling for dominance or survival, shift your focus to more spiritual concerns. The real magic isn’t in the physical world today. You will be able to let go of unnecessary resentment if you act with compassion instead of fear.
You might want to establish new financial goals now that the Moon is visiting your 2nd House of Wealth. However, there is a deep connection between your self-esteem and your net worth. Obviously, there are many practical things you can do to augment your income and increase your assets, but today an attitude change might be more important than anything else. If you value yourself, it will be easier in the long run for others to invest in you.
It’s not easy to keep your feelings secret now because they’re obvious to others, even if you don’t express them directly. The moody Moon is visiting your 1st House of Personality and she has her own language that bypasses words and social pleasantries. Nevertheless, it’s unwise to assume that others know what’s going on for you unless you actually take the time to specifically tell them. Confiding in someone you trust will make you feel instantly better.
The Moon’s presence in your 12th House of Privacy raises conflicts between your need to be constantly in the world doing your thing and your current desire to isolate yourself so you can work in solitude. Neither extreme is an acceptable course of action now, even if you think that you must choose one way or the other today. Change the rules of the game by imagining a scenario where you can be in the spotlight when necessary, yet are still able to escape when you need to be alone.
You’re motivated by your dreams now that the adventurous Sagittarius Moon is in your 11th House of Future Goals. Unfortunately, you might not have enough common sense to know which of your ideas are good enough to follow and which should be set aside. Luckily, you don’t have to decide today; just allow your thoughts to take you on a fascinating ride without being bound to any single outcome.
The Moon’s current visit to your 10th House of Career encourages you to make big plans to fulfill your professional ambitions. Although you may feel as if you’re sitting on top of the world — or, at least have a clear path to the mountain’s summit — others may not see your success in the same way. Don’t be discouraged by the doubters and naysayers; go ahead and reach for the stars. Just remember to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground at the same time.
A subtle and indirect approach to fulfilling your needs will work better this weekend rather than charging straight ahead. Letting love come to you by relaxing your schedule and allowing your mind to wander is the easiest way to open to delight. Be soft and gentle with yourself and others; sensitivity could be worth its weight in gold, making you deliciously desirable to the right partner.
Your alluring ruling planet Venus forms a harmonious alignment with passionate Mars this weekend. This cosmic couple makes it easier for you to enjoy yourself and appeal to others without having to put on a big show or step out of your comfort zone. Connecting with someone special when working for a cause or as part of a group can satisfy personal desires while also doing good for the community.
Sensitive people may take your playful comments to heart this weekend. A lunar opposition from thin-skinned Pisces to your verbal ruling planet Mercury in sharp-tongued Virgo on Saturday can kill a romantic mood. If you can’t say what’s on your mind with a high level of kindness, it’s probably wiser to keep those thoughts to yourself. Love without language is not only possible, it might be the best way to communicate now.
Getting out of town, or at least escaping from your usual routine, can do wonders for your attitude this weekend. The magical Pisces Moon lights up your adventurous 9th House on Saturday and Sunday, making unfamiliar faces and places especially appealing. Dipping into foreign cultures by experimenting with food, music and art or connecting with someone in an educational setting are good ways to light your fire.
The emotional Moon is passing through your key houses of partnership from Thursday to Sunday, marking an important period for meeting someone new or bringing clarity into your current relationship. Discussing sensitive issues without becoming overwhelmed with criticism can make the difference between constructive conversations that draw you closer or destructive ones that drive you apart.
Look for someone sweet on Saturday when the tender Pisces Moon enters your 7th House of Partners. A favorable connection between loving Venus in your sign and passionate Mars in caring Cancer is another shift in your favor in matters of the heart. Enjoy the moments of pleasure you have without thinking about where they will take you. Delight is a gift that is easily shared.
Thursday and Friday find the quirky Aquarius Moon brightening your 5th House of Romance where unexpected connections and unusual forms of pleasure await you. A lunar transit through your 6th House of Service helps you combine work and play during the rest of the weekend. Sharing a labor of love with someone can inspire you both, especially when it’s for an artistic or compassionate cause.
The Moon dances into imaginative Pisces and your 5th House of Romance on Saturday, which helps you relax and escape the demands and duties of your daily life. Playful flirtations and amorous fantasies lighten your spirit, making you especially appealing to others. Having no agenda other than opening your heart is a virtual guarantee of having a good time.
Hanging out at your place can be more exciting than you think when the mystical Pisces Moon visits your domestic 4th house on Saturday. You can create an enticing environment with music, wine and some imaginative decorating that welcomes love into your house. Even if you’re alone now, there is an inner tenderness that can make you feel a divine connection with your soul.
Plans can change quickly this weekend with the Moon traveling through quirky Aquarius and dreamy Pisces. Instead of locking into a fixed idea of what you’re going to do, relax and allow your intuition to take you wherever it wants to go. The less control you impose on your universe, the more likely it is to bring you what you want. Following your instincts and trusting chance could make you a relationship winner.
The Moon enters your friendly but freedom-loving sign on Thursday where it will bring your feelings straight to the surface. This is excellent for getting attention, although your unpredictable behavior may attract some people and push others away. After the Moon slips into gentle Pisces on Saturday afternoon, adopt a softer approach — showing your vulnerable side could prove more alluring to others.
The Moon’s shift into your deliciously sweet and sensitive sign on Saturday afternoon invites you to reveal your inner self to others. It can be hard for anyone to resist such emotional honesty when it’s expressed with wonder and inspired by faith in the power of love. Cast your worries aside and act as if you are the most desirable person in the world and other people are likely to see you in the same light.
