If you were drawn to the Card and Rune 1: The Moon - "Illumination, psychic, and intuitive strength, shadow self" This card represent emotions, sensitivity, and a reminder that nothing in life is at a standstill - this is a world of constant flux, and one this is certain: Everything changes. It is calling you to action; the time is now when you may have to face your worst fears and look into the dark shadows of your soul. You must learn to confront what you've avoided and walk courageously through it. The energy behind this card is strong and wild. Like the tides you may feel that emotionally you are being pulled in many directions and unable to settle down. Realize that all things come in due time and that right now you are on a natural cycle. Wait for things to calm down in your love life before making a decision. Always know that life naturally revitalize itself and as it does, so do you. You are definitely in a more psychic and intuitive phase than usual, so it will be important for you to trust your instincts and your impressions, even if you don't know where they are coming from. Also, not that you need to be mistrusting, but it will be helpful for you to realize that when this card appears, it's possible that all is not what it seems. If you feel you can't trust someone, then you probably can't. Go with your gut. If you are waiting on an answer from someone, it may, unfortunately, take longer than you would like for it to. Try to stay patient. The Moon card promises that there's light at the end of the tunnel. Recognize that by no longer denying your past and letting the tears fall, you'll discover the diazos in the treasure chest of your soul. This is a cleansing process to wash away and clear out what was once avoided, ignored, and pushes aside. Fehu - This is a Rune of fulfillment: ambition satisfied, love shared, rewards received. It promises nourishment from the most worldly to the sacred and the Divine. For if the ancient principle "As above so below" holds true, then we are also here to nourish God. Fehu is actually the rune of ‘luck’. The universe is not so much made up by chance, as by luck. Luck is a hidden but real energy field inherent in your ‘hamingja’. Fehu governs the capacity to hold this luck and use it like a magical ability. This basic energy, your accumulated luck, is the foundation of the wealth and power in your life. Courageous deeds are central to increasing one’s ‘luck’. In starting new endeavors, Fehu will activate the will, restore self-confidence and assist in goal-setting followed by immediate action. Use the symbol and its teachings against procrastination. It is a reminder to think for yourself, which is fundamental to working with the runes. I find that the vibration of this rune to be in alignment with the principles of sexual attraction, first impressions and young love. Fehu is a reminder for us to act out of the present moment.
Quick Note - I realize it is actually Ansuz and not Fehu that is the rune, I made a mistake but this was posted and it felt right - so leaving it as is.
If you picked the Card and Rune 2: Five of Rods - "Stand up for what you believe in." In Tarot, the Fives typically represent conflict and change, and this is no different for the Five of Rods. This card indicates that you are in the midst of conflict, tension and competition and it is impacting your ability to move forward with your goals. Rather than being able to work together with others, you are coming up against it and are constantly being challenged on your point of view. This card represents the obstacles, power struggles, and challenges that you must face in order to overcome them. This could be a difficult period to get through, but it's not impossible if you open your mind and see the bigger picture of how something went wrong. Don't get caught up in it, just pause and stand back fro clarity - observes where adjustments are required or which decisions may need to be changed to enable you to move forward in a positive direction. Life really is all about learning; don't play the victim. Take the knowledge you've gained from this experience so that you can apply it to similar situations in the future. This card often comes forth when competition is around you, whether it's in your personal or business life. This is an excellent time to think creatively and ask yourself, How can I make myself shine above all the rest? Sometimes, this type of conflict and discussion can be very positive, such as in the case of group brainstorming and problem-solving. You need a positive environment where you can test your ideas and have them challenged, and improved, by others. Be open to this type of conflict and discussion as a positive contribution to improving the quality of your ideas and actions. The card also serves as reminder for you to stay strong and focus on the positive. Remember that this is not a card that carries dire consequences. It is not a bad omen or anything for you to be particularly worried about. Rather, do your best to stay positive even through darker times. It is okay to be worried because that shows concern. However, you want to be careful to give into excess anxiety. Berkana - This refers to renewal, regeneration, purification, healing, and recovery. It is the rune of the family and the home, and represents enjoyment of fertility and birth. Birth in this context can be literal or symbolic, such as the successful start of any new ideas or enterprise. It is the word for birch tree, and symbolically stands as the Norse rune for growth and rebirth. An exciting time for new beginnings and fresh adventures. A lot of activity and energy. Sow seeds, but the harvest is yet to come so don't expect immediate results for your effort. Put the past in its place and learn from your experiences. This is also a good time for spiritual renewal. Clear away any misconceptions and accept new ideas. New beginnings will flourish and lost causes will be redeemed.
If you selected the Card and Rune 3: Two of Cups - "Connection and balance. Yin and Yang." The Two of Cups is the archetype of balance and harmony. There is a natural ebb and flow, give and take synergy between oneself and another - bet that an intimate relationship of financial or professional harmony, ensuring there is balance within oneself and one's life. Traditionally, the Two of Cups is associated with twin-soul love - where connection is due, honest, solid, and respectful. If there are challenges within a relationship, look deeper than the surface level to create harmonization. This is a card of love - budding relationships and developing a connection that rejuvenates the soul and flows into all areas of one's life. It may also indicate that a quarrel or mistake can be mended and heard. On first glance, the Two of Cups shares a similar message to the Lovers. However, the energy of the Two of Cups is slightly weaker than the Lovers card. Whereas the Lovers is the reunion of two complete beings, the Two of Cups is a less mature union that, stable as it may seem, does have the potential to come undone over a longer period of time. So, while the union is strong now, it is not clear whether the relationship shown by the Two of Cups can stand the test of time. Only the two people involved can decide that. Despite the focus on the two beings shown on this card, it also points to what is happening within the individual. To be truly loved, deeply treasured and valued highly by others, you must first and foremost strive to create those feelings for yourself. That is, when you work toward loving yourself, you hold your inner spirit in high regard, treating it with deference and deep respect. When you see yourself in this positive light, other people cannot help but respond to your personal sense of value in an equally positive manner. Gebo - A partnership in some form is at hand. In love relationships, in business matters, in partnering of every kind, you are put on notice not to collapse yourself into any relationship. For true partnership to be achieved only by separated and whole beings who retain their separateness even as they unite. Remember to let the winds of Heaven dance between you. At the same time, there is another aspect of partnership that you are being called to consider. The path of partnership can lead you to the realization of a still greater union - with the Higher Self, with the Divine. The realization that the Divine resides in all things is the ultimate gift of this Rune. God always enters into equal partnerships. This Rune asks you to ignore the low-energy, ego based thoughts that say you are done, and your dreams have turned to dust. Attune your inner voice to the high vibrations of flowers, the angels of nature. They will bring you strength and courage to take the next step forward.
