The Rune for today is Elhaz (or Algiz) which means Elk. The rune stands for protection and guarding what you love and what is rightfully yours. It is all about setting safe boundaries and deciding who or what is worth your effort to protect.
With that in mind I pulled The Lovers from the Original Rider Waite tarot and was immediately struck by the posture of the angel which is exactly the same as the Elhaz rune. The angel is the protector and guardian of The Lovers. This is a card about every form of Love you can think of. It can be about love between two people (not necessary romantic), about self love (very important) or about the love for a line of work or hobby etc. It is also a card about choice. You have to choose in who or what you will invest your love. Although Love itself is infinite, we do want to choose what we love and what it is we are willing to protect and to fight for. Yes fight for! before I became a mother, I thought I was incapable of any form of aggression. Now I know differently.
But although setting some protective boundaries is a wise thing to do, I want to open the door for new love and new opportunities because to be honest, it has been closed to for too long and it is time for some fresh air
