Brunhilde

Myth of the Day (Norse)

Brunhilde:

A mighty female warrior, one of the Valkyries, and a heroine from the German epics, especially in the Nibelungen saga, in which she is a Icelandic princess. She defied Odin and in punishment he imprisoned her within a ring of fire on earth, decreeing that there she would remain until a brave hero rescued her. Siegfied (Sigurd) braved the fire, broke her charmed sleep, and fell in love with her. He gave her the ring, Andvarinaut, unaware of its curse. Eventually she kills herself when she learns that Sigurd had betrayed her with another woman (Gudrun), not knowing he had been bewitched into doing so by Grimhild.

Cops: Captive entrant tortured

You know, people who accuse illegal immigrants of being deadbeats, welfare scams, whatever, usually ignore the fact that these are often people who risked death by dehydration, being shot at by border patrol agents and god knows what else because their situation back home was so bad as to be worth the risk. Not to mention sick bastards like this one.

TAROT CARDS OF THE DAY:

Queen of Swords: The essence of air behaving as water, such as a refreshing mist: A person gifted with both keen logic and natural intuition, giving them uncanny powers of perception and insight.

The embodiment of calm, forthrightness, and wit, in the face of even the most trying circumstances.

Five of Cups (Disappointment): Suffering a loss and wishing for what might have been. Being crippled by sadness, grief, and vain regret. Indecision brought on by the feeling that you made the wrong choice. Ignoring what you still have. May suggest a broken relationship or tragedy. May also suggest a gift, inheritance, opportunity, partnership, or marriage, but one that falls below expectations.
