This aspect will be tested morally. This test is may be well hidden and the solution a mystery to you. You will have to make your way through it blindly. Have faith in yourself and you will do fine.
The Egyptian Gnostic talisman is engraved with their hawk-headed and frog-headed deities, the winged aureus, and the ankh, the symbol of life. The inscription is a supplication to Bait, Hathor, Akori, and ends with Hail, Father of the World! Hail, God in Three Forms! This amulet was worn as a protection against both physical and moral evil. The religion of the Gnostic was a strange intermingling of pagan and Christian ideas. It was a system of complicated symbolism made purposely obscure and mysterious.
Symbol: Seven Stars
The Seven Stars tile signifies creative growth and power. Creativity should be applied to the area this tile appears. This is a place to let your imagination run free. The Seven Stars tile also indicates hope for the future.
Poor Rabbit! No other animal is so associated with fear than Rabbit—that nervous little bunny who hops and leaps at every little sound. Rabbit has come to you today to ask you to have the courage to face whatever difficulties you’re having instead of running away to a safe burrow. Face your fears, examine your old “fight or flight” patterns, and determine once and for all to stop hiding away.
The Chance card denotes a period in which taking risks may produce positive results. This doesn’t mean head off to a casino with your life’s savings! What is suggested is that you should make gains by taking a well calculated risk. For the power of Chance to be fully realized it is essential that you pick your risk carefully, move forward with conviction, and above all else don’t get greedy!
As a daily card, Chance implies you are currently in a place where taking a chance is likely to produce substantial rewards. In other words, take a few calculated steps out on the proverbial limb, but remember if you take it too far you are likely to lose all that you gain and possibly more.
Meanings: The Rings is the rune of love and when it is the leading stone, it is a positive answer to your question. It is very much a rune of relationship and can indicate engagement, marriage or a new/renewed relationship. It can also indicate the need for a fresh approach to an existing relationship.
The Hermit denotes a need to have some space between you and everyday hustle and bustle of our busy world. The Hermit needs to retreat. Indeed, happiness for The Hermit requires seclusion, freedom from material wants, and time for intense introspection. The answers The Hermit needs cannot be found in our physical world. The truths he seeks are internal, spiritual, and the distraction of a well developed social life can only impede his quest for his personal truths. Still, although not anything remotely resembling extroversion, The Hermit does sometimes need to share time with others; so he can learn or teach, guide and be guided. The Hermit’s time spent amongst people depletes his energy rapidly. To avoid an overload he has to retreat from social settings quickly.
This is a three Rune cast intended to shed light on what is, what was, and what will be.
The Past Ansuz
Ansuz represents mankind’s spiritual connection to God and the universe. It is often referred to as the “God Rune.” This Rune embodies reason, truth and justice. It denotes the coming of knowledge and true counsel from a higher authority.

The Future Laguz
Laguz is the feminine Rune. It denotes a deep sexuality and fertility. Laguz also represents that which is ever changing and renewal. You may be in a tremendous spiritual growth period.
Wunjo denotes joy and shared bliss. It may also represent a job well done and the satisfaction one feels from completing such a task. Wunjo brings good fortune and harmony.

ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES:
Wunjo is the last rune of the first aett, and thus represents both the end of one cycle and preparation for the next. It is a very positive, stable rune, and is another place where people tend to get stalled along their journey. Christian poets related it to heaven, but in fact it more closely resembles the Pagan Valhalla, since this particular paradise is not a permanent one.Like the wealth of fehu, the glory of wunjo is only an illusion.
We have achieved success on one level only, and there are many more lessons to be learned. It is, however, a welcome respite which allows us to rest, re-charge our batteries and prepare ourselves for the rest of the journey. It also gives us some perspective, allowing us to look back and reflect on the road thus far. Wunjo gives us a glimpse of what is possible, but if we try too soon to reach out and grab it, like the Grail it will disappear between our fingers.
Each zodiac sign is linked to one of the Tarot cards in the Major Arcana. Most of these powerful cards have images of archetypal figures that represent the essence of a type of person. Animals are also used to portray human characteristics.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Your Tarot card is The Emperor, the guy who will always be there when you need him. This card represents your sign’s loyalty and ability to stick by your friends through thick and thin. Like the royal figure on your card, you use your authority and analytical powers to help others and to achieve your goals.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)Your card, The Hierophant, represents learning from knowledgeable teachers who can help you search for higher truths by exploring tried and true traditions. Sifting through the superficial, these learned souls can lead you to the heart of matters where profound insights reveal important life lessons.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Every Gemini is blessed with a dual nature represented by your Tarot card, The Lovers. Turning points for you often involve making a moral choice between taking the high or low road. This card encourages you to weigh your options carefully and follow the path dictated by your personal integrity.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You stand proud and strong as you guide The Chariot on your card, steering a steady course and rising above life’s conflicts. Even though Cancers seek security, you also love the freedom of the open road where you can use your highly-developed intuition to win the race.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
The Strength card represents your physical strength — like that of the mighty Lion on your card — as well as your emotional, mental and spiritual prowess. Like the Lion, you are blessed with plenty of courage, which helps you overcome problems and obstacles.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Like The Hermit, you often need to slow down and go within to focus on your purpose in life. The image on this card — an old man — represents a person who is weary of the outer world. When he retreats to explore the mysteries of his inner life, he becomes open and innocent like a child.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Justice holds the scales, asking you to weigh your desires against your needs. In order to reach a fair outcome, you must put your feelings and emotions aside. When you reach the light at the end of the tunnel of indecision, you will be able to serve the greater good.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Like your Tarot card, Death, you welcome transformation. You often shed your skin like a snake, seeking to release your spirit and be reborn. Because you are able to detach yourself from the ties that bind others, it’s easy for you to change your identity, making you the mysterious person everyone wants to figure out.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Like your card, Temperance, you are a gifted mediator, able to find common ground by balancing out judgments with genuine understanding and awareness. Like a steadily-meandering stream, you work your way through whatever difficulties get in the way.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
The Devil card encourages you to face your shadow-self in order to gather the knowledge necessary for spiritual transformation. It advises you to reflect on any negativity that has made you doubt yourself, swap it for confidence and hold fast to your highest vision of who you are.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Your card, The Star, focuses on your optimism. When you wish on the stars, you really believe you can achieve your heart’s desires. Your job in this world is to convince others they can too, thereby helping to lead them home in a spiritual sense.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Like your Tarot card, The Moon, you are a creature of ever-changing moods. You do best when you attune to nature’s cycles and use them to refresh your intuitive powers. The Moon rules emotions, which are your strong suit, especially when you use your compassionate nature to help others.
Strength denotes an inner power, mastery of will and development of inner might. Through mastering one’s emotions and learning from both success and failure the person Strength represents has reached a place where they are influential without applying physical force, able to weather the roughest of storms, and not likely to abandon the less fortunate. Strength also denotes a large capacity for forgiveness and compassion. Strength is not as much about winning as it is about achieving balance, overcoming hardship, and using well crafted persuasion to gain allies.
Venus leaves your romance and entertainment sector and enters your work and health sector today, dear Aries, but will soon retrograde (on the 25th) and return to your romance sector again until October 9th. You’ll be revisiting some of the recent decisions you’ve made, particularly related to design, purchases, and romance. Some of you will be revisiting old relationships. Today is good for feeling in contact with what you want, along with the confidence that you can achieve your happiness goals. However, there can be some household tension or a sense of feeling limited or restricted later today that needs to be handled. Try not to overthink things, which is a strong tendency now.
The first half of the day is good for widening your comfort zone a little in order to entertain new possibilities, dear Taurus, particularly when it comes to home and family matters. The trick will be to avoid going too far or expecting unrealistic things. Later today, there can be many ideas, but little organization. If you decide to simply enjoy the energy, then you will do well. However, if you insist on finding order in the chaos, you might only make yourself tense. There is a distinct possibility that you will speak too hastily on a matter today, and it’s your choice whether you simply want to let it happen and go with the flow, or hold back if you’re not in the mood to take a little mental risk!
You might find special meaning in the things you read and hear about in the first half of the day, dear Gemini, with the Moon and Jupiter aligning in your communications zone. This is friendly energy, and making an effort to connect with others, if they don’t do it first, can be beneficial now. Later today, you might find yourself clashing with a friend over a concept or idea, and this may be an issue of values. Watch that you don’t do things, and even communicate things, so quickly that you end up missing the mark. Even so, there can be moments of inspiration. Pay attention to those, but keep yourself grounded as well.
Venus moves out of your finance sector and into your communications zone today, dear Cancer, but due to its upcoming retrograde that begins on the 25th, it won’t stay there for long. It will return to your finance sector, stimulating a need to review recent decisions or financial matters, on the 31st. Today’s energy is positive and optimistic, although as the day progresses, there can be some tension if you’re expecting everything to go as planned. Conflicts or confrontations can certainly lead to positive things, nervous energy simply adds stress to your plate. Avoid pushing situations or people. If you find that you’re quickly becoming impatient, look for a new subject or topic that interests you and move at your own pace.
Venus leaves your sign today, dear Leo, but not for long. Venus enters your solar second house today, but because the planet turns retrograde on the 25th, Venus returns to your sign on the 31st, and will stay there until October 9th. This retrograde period can turn your attention to matters that require some closure or tying up of loose ends. Today, the Moon transits your sign until this evening, when it too moves into your solar second house. Emotional continue to take priority until then. Later today, something said can stir up all sorts of issues, including defensiveness. Before it spirals out of control, consider whether or not it’s better to simply correct matters of syntax and move on.
The morning is strong for letting go of a grievance or nagging problem, dear Virgo, but as the day advances, you may be tensing up. For one, the Moon enters your sign this evening, bringing unmet emotional needs to your strong awareness. For another, Mercury, your ruler, forms a square with Uranus, and this energy may feel like pressure on you to take on more than you can handle. While you can’t ignore the desire to break away from tried and true methods, do resist doing so if you are simply itching to be different or if you are rebelling. You don’t want to follow the crowd right now, and you shouldn’t have to, but there are ways to go your own way that cause minimal friction. Venus enters your sign today, but will not stay very long due to an upcoming retrograde that begins on the 25th. On the 31st, Venus will slip back into the background of your solar chart where it’s been since early June. Venus will return to your sign on October 9th, however, when you can enjoy its benefits in more concrete ways.
There is a nice feeling of confidence about the first half of the day that totally becomes you, dear Libra. You are as gracious as ever, and this helps open up opportunities to you. The need to have more time to yourself comes later today, and it’s better not to fight it, as it’s part of a natural cycle. The need to process and heal is apparent now. What you may want to fight is a tendency to overthink things that comes with a Mercury-Uranus square. The pace may be a little too quick and you might not always feel that you’re in step with those around you. Flexibility is required of you, as you need to allow for the unexpected. You might initially balk at advice given to you now, but you don’t have to agree with advice in order to learn something from it. Disagreeing may in fact jumpstart your own thinking.
This morning’s energy is strong for all things career and reputation, dear Scorpio. You could be feeling quite confident about your performance now. Later today, there can be trickier energy with you, but this can be managed if you allow yourself to enjoy a quicker pace or disorganized ideas. In fact, inspiration can be had, even if the details of a plan may not fall into place yet. Ideas tend to be thrown into the ring and then thrown away just as quickly. Listening without banking on permanency can be quite creative and certainly less stressful than if you insist on everything being “just so”.
The first half of the day is good for getting others on board with your ideas or plans, dear Sagittarius. You are coming across well, and you might find that it’s easier than usual to take on a challenge or deal with life’s usual stresses. Later today, there can be a tendency for people to hang on too tightly to their opinions, ideas, or methods, and it becomes a little too easy to clash. Avoid allowing yourself to get worked up about something that someone says or writes, as it’s unlikely to hold much weight and may in fact be forgotten quickly as you move forward. You might also begin to think more intently about your responsibilities as the day advances.
There can be something to gain in the first half of the day through research, review, or observation, dear Capricorn. It can pay to step back and watch things happen, or to actively look into a matter. Later today, you’re more inclined to step out of the shadows and seek out excitement more directly – as a participant rather than an observer now. There may be some tension, however, when it comes to ideas and communications. Someone’s ideas may seem a little too far out or you might become frustrated with disorganized instructions or by excessive distractions. This will all become sorted, likely on its own and soon enough, so try your best to simply enjoy the randomness of the evening.
There are times today, particularly this morning, when you can feel that others brings out the best in you, dear Aquarius. Partnerships and one-on-one situations tend to be in strong focus, although you’re also a little more emotional when it comes to relationships than you are usually. Address the need for growth in your relationships, and reach out to others if they are not already reaching out to you. Later today, however, watch that nervous energy doesn’t interfere with your mood or happiness. There is a tendency to take on more than you can reasonably handle, and possibly to overthink problems to the point of considerable tension.
Hope and optimism can help you to heal, dear Pisces, and this morning, you can be feeling especially strong in this regard. Some of you could stumble upon a method for improving your health, work, or well-being, or be reminded of something on these lines. Others might find special satisfaction in service, helping or supporting others, or work today. There is graciousness in what you do, and this can benefit you. However, later today, there can be a tendency to worry or to plan poorly, which interferes with your calm mood. Venus enters your partnership sector today, but will stay there for only a short period. By the 31st, it will return to your work and health sector in retrograde motion. There can be new feelings about or for someone in the coming weeks.
You are versatile and are clever enough to wrap your brain around virtually anything you want to understand. You are an odd mix of progressive and traditional, as you can certainly identify injustices and root for the underdog, but you can be very stubborn in your own ways of thinking, balking at change just for the sake of change. You are extraordinarily intelligent and a very interesting conversationalist. You see things through. Famous people born today: Phyllis Diller, Art Linkletter, Donald Sutherland, David Hasselhoff, Camilla Parker Bowles, James Cagney.
After an early morning slump or lack of direction, dear Aries, the day brings good energy for enjoying yourself. Your needs for pleasure and entertainment are stronger than usual, and some positive feedback can also help a lot now! The Moon is in a sector of your solar chart that brings out your more expressive needs. This should be more about sharing your happiness with others than about being the center of attention, but if you feel the need for applause, there shouldn’t be harm in seeking it out within moderation. Paying others sincere compliments and showing others your more emotionally generous side can certainly help others to see your better traits.
Today and much of tomorrow, dear Taurus, the Moon occupies your home and family sector, and you are emotionally inclined to seek out the familiar. Home life, people with whom you’re most comfortable, and tried and true activities and routines are most appealing to you now. Even while out and about, you’re seeing things in terms of their source or origins, making it a good time to sort out problems from their very root. You’re not as adventurous on an emotional level today, but you’re building your faith in yourself.
All things having to do with learning and communicating tend to be in stronger focus for you today, dear Gemini. This suits your personality quite well! There may be a quickened pace today, but it’s experienced as more pleasant than frantic. This is a time for branching out, connecting, and learning about what’s going on around you. You’re at your happiest with a little bit of variety, as you have little interest in lifeless routine right now. Your ruler, Mercury, is in creative aspect with the asteroid Pallas, and this helps to heighten your perceptions. You are more able to see important patterns, particularly related to your close relationships.
Emotions are settling and balance is sought today, dear Cancer, with the Moon out of your sign and in your solar second house. Physical comforts and pleasures are more appealing than usual to you now. Those things that remind you to appreciate the beauty of the moment, or of the “here and now”, are very beneficial for you today. You need to feel grounded and in the moment. This promises to be a day in which you are feeling more stable and comfortable than usual, and with emotions less immediate and urgent, you are in a great position to regroup. Good energy is with you for sorting, organizing, making lists, and formulating plans.
The Moon is in your own sign all day, dear Leo, and will continue this transit much of tomorrow as well. In some ways, you might be feeling as if you are beginning anew on an emotional level. This is the time to leave emotional issues that have been annoying you or undermining your personal comfort behind you so that you can move forward with a relatively clean slate. For some of you, the spotlight is pointed directly at you today. This is a time to learn about your needs and desires, as they become very clear to you now, but to exercise patience, knowing that they are likely to feel more immediate and pressing than they truly are.
Today and much of tomorrow, the Moon is transiting the final sector of your solar chart, dear Virgo, and this stimulates a natural need for introspection. It also favors tying up of loose ends, endings in general if they are necessary, and extra private time for emotional recuperation. If it’s at all possible, lighten your workload and schedule and take extra time to review the significant events of the past month. This is a time for inner reflection so that when life demands more from you, your instincts and impulses are more aligned with your true self. Good, workable solutions for problems around the home or with family can come to you quite readily today.
Teaming up with others or simply letting in others’ ideas and feedback can be beneficial today, dear Libra. Make connections, share some of yourself with like-minded people, and open yourself up so that you can absorb new methods, ideas, and good advice. You might be inspired by a dream, idea, or vision. You are thinking in the long term, and the focus is less upon practical or business goals and more about finding your happiness. The goal should be a stronger sense of fulfillment. Do not be afraid to lend a helping hand. Giving someone else a boost can really brighten your day!
In recent days, your emotional focus has been on making your life more interesting, dear Scorpio, whether that’s through learning, some form of adventure-seeking, or putting yourself into new circumstances. While this certainly continues to be a theme for a while longer, today your attention turns to responsibilities, performance, career, or public life. What others think of you is based on their own personal realities, and has very little to do with you. However, how you feel about your own attention to how you perform or fill your duties is vital to your emotional well-being today. Taking extra time to do what you feel is right today can go a long way towards a feeling of satisfaction.
If an interesting opportunity comes your way, seize it! You never know what will give life an extra little spark, dear Sagittarius, and emotionally, that’s what you’re looking for right now. Even if you have to fill certain duties and responsibilities today, you can still attempt to play things in such a way that you don’t get bored. Hurdles and trials can actually help us to grow. If you look at problems from a big-picture perspective, you can effectively reframe them and feel stronger in the process. You are looking to experience life without worrying about the particulars today.
It’s true that you can’t rewrite the past, dear Capricorn, but you can certainly adjust the way you look at it by turning trials into important life lessons, for example. Today, the tendency is to look behind, within, and forward from a place of observation. It’s a good time to contemplate recent decisions and events so that you can make small adjustments and edits to your plans going forward. You may feel the need to keep to yourself, and that’s just fine and even beneficial for now.
If you have concerns, now is a good time to seek out advice from people you trust, dear Aquarius. Things tend to be better in twos for you today. Even if you can’t be around someone special, it’s a time for putting some of your personal plans on hold temporarily as you think about how you affect others and how they impact your life. Finding a balance is particularly important to you today and much of tomorrow, especially if you have been focusing a little too strongly on your work and personal interests.
Whenever the Moon is in Leo, which it is today and much of tomorrow, you have a stronger tendency to pay attention to details, dear Pisces – the parts that make up the whole, flaws, and problems – as the Moon is traveling through your solar sixth house. This serves a very good purpose in your life, if you use this time well. Those matters that require critical thinking and editing can benefit now. The little things that are behind the more glamorous elements of your life need some attention. Tend to these, and you’ll move ahead with a far lighter load.
The Moon will be in openhearted, dramatic Leo until Saturday night, helping you make the most of the better half of this weekend when it comes to love potential. Be sure to put on your dancing shoes and get yourself out there! If single, you’ll want to attend a party, mixer or other fun event.
Even if you’re attached, it’ll be a weekend to make plenty of time for romance. Just be sure to get it all in by Saturday night because that evening, the Moon enters Virgo and love planet Venus follows suit. For the rest of Saturday night and into Sunday, romantic matters take a more practical turn. Love, you’ll find out, is more about the little things. Pay attention to the details.
