Your Daily Rune for Today
Also known as: Algiz, Eoih, Elgr
Letter sound: Z
Translation: protection, elk, sedge plant
Keywords: protection, defense, opportunity
Primary Themes Elhaz is the rune of defense and protection. Its shape is said to represent both the elk, with its imposing antlers, and the sedge plant, whose sharp leaves act as natural protection from would-be predators. Both images illustrate the power represented by this rune— a built-in protective force that discourages negative influences from affecting your personal experience.
Drawing Elhaz indicates that you are safe from danger and that there is no need to fear. However, don’t take the protective energy for granted by being reckless with your actions, as this rune does not mean that there is no danger present whatsoever. It simply means that as long as you remain alert and clear-minded and in touch with your intuition, you are headed for a positive outcome. Elhaz has also been interpreted as a symbol of reaching up to connect with the divine for support. By listening to your higher guidance, you will know which moves to make to stay out of harm’s way.
Magical Uses: Protection from negative energy and people, protection of property, strengthen friendships, astral communication

Daily Karmic Number
The number 7 in opposition is coming up for you because you have lost faith in humanity. Rather than turn away from everyone, use the time to learn about the spiritual, religious, and cultural aspects of different people. You will quickly learn that everyone is arguing the same basic points but think they are the utmost authorities. You will not be able to save the world, but you will be able to sleep easier knowing that understanding is what’s missing. Your new understanding will help you cultivate more compassion. You will listen differently to others but also to yourself. You may even find your way back to loving everyone around you.
The things you do every day are the things that can impact your life the most. Through our daily rituals and routines, we create a sense of consistency and mindfulness that helps keep us centered when negative emotions, sudden developments, and surprise circumstances come up that could knock us off kilter. Yoga, meditation, prayer, cooking, exercise … these are all great rituals that, when done daily, can create a real sense of health, stability, and purpose for you. But perhaps one of the most beneficial daily rituals of all is a daily Tarot reading!
Any Tarot reading can provide an incredible amount of insight and understanding into whatever situation you’re facing. But daily Tarot readings go even further — by identifying the cards and messages that come up for you on a regular basis, start to realize the patterns in your life, the things that affect you most frequently, and all the ways you tend to react. When you can identify these patterns, you have all the power to embrace them or change them!
5 Reasons to start a daily Tarot reading ritual
1. Set intentions
We’ve all had those days when we wake up late, throw ourselves together, and stumble into our routine unprepared and unfocused. The problem is, those days usually don’t smooth out. The way you start your day — are you eager or are you exhausted? Optimistic or pessimistic? Open or closed off? — can totally dictate the day you have. You cannot control everything that will come up, but you can control the way you move through it. Pausing to set intentions for the day through a daily Tarot reading grounds your heart and mind so you enter every situation that arises with clarity and mindfulness.
2. See the patterns
It’s easy to compartmentalize our days, taking everything that happens from morning to night and tucking it away, in order to start fresh the next day. But when we look at each day as isolated from all the rest, we limit our ability to see the big picture of what’s happening in our lives. One little regret here, one little reward there may not seem like much. But when you start to realize a pattern of regret or a pattern of reward, you can start to see the reason these things recur, which gives you all the power to create more reward and less regret in the future.
3. Be present
Living in the moment is NOT easy. Fears, problems, and heartaches from the past — whether years ago or just days ago — are hard to ignore. Not to mention hopes and expectations for the future… But when you spend all your time in the past and the future, you miss everything that’s happening in the present moment. A daily Tarot reading ritual establishes a time to reconnect with yourself every day, in this exact moment, and identify the things that are affecting you most NOW.
4. Make difficult decisions
When you draw the cards for your Tarot reading, be intentional and tune into your intuition. It is your subconscious that knows which cards to pull, because it knows which messages you need to be hear. Sometimes our conscious minds are so full of trivial matters that we cannot see what we really need to see, making it tough to make any healthy decisions for ourselves. A daily Tarot reading helps you clear out the clutter of your daily life so you see what lies before you with greater clarity.
5. Find peace
Whether you’re experiencing a specific, heartfelt loss or change or you’re just feeling totally crazed out of your mind, a daily Tarot reading helps you not just with a one-time piece of advice, but with regular, recurring help through your process of healing. By meditating on the wisdom you receive from a reading, you’ll not only find clarity in your present situation, but a deeper sense of peace and calm in your daily life. And when the next issue arises — because you know it will! — you’ll be able to face it head-on using your greatest weapon: a healthy, centered mindset.
Three readings a day keeps the stress away
Many people read their horoscope or do a Tarot reading first thing in the morning, to set the tone for the day. But have you ever had a day that started out one way, then took a serious turn? Of course you have … we all have! That’s why not just one, but THREE Tarot readings a day can be so beneficial. You can not only set intentions for your day, but as circumstances arise throughout the day, you can check back in with another reading for more immediate, focused insight.

The Hanged Man
The Hanged Man card in relation to love and romance indicates that this is a time of some uncertainty and perhaps doubt in regard to the important relationships in your life. You have an opportunity now to gain a deeper understanding of what you most need to know about these relationships and develop an alternative perspective. Make the most of this time to retreat and gain awareness of yourself and others.
Your Egyptian Tarot Card for Today
Death is the end of the old and the beginning of the new. You sometimes place finality on Death that is human conjecture, not fact. Death only appears final to those who view human existences as the ultimate awareness. For that to be true, humans would have to be the center of the Universe and they are not. Embrace Death as a part of life and you will get much more out of it. Death doesn’t end anything, but it does change everything.

Resentment that builds walls that keeps others we want in, out, needs healing today. Resentment shows in tension in a face that rarely smiles. The Tower urges you to start working now and you are one day closer to a loving, soul mate union. If your long-term relationship is undergoing a rough patch, talk about the things that bother you. Anger kills passion. You need to encourage them to talk to you.
