Hagalaz – Hail – Blunt, external change is upon us this week. Whether it’s cooler weather settling into much of the northern hemisphere, a chill skating through life, or some other frozen state breaking wide open, the elements prod our wyrd bring a wake-up call.
I’m always hesitant to write private things in my blog, not because I’m unwilling to share myself, but because I generally talk about these things in social media, and I’m hyper-sensitive to inundating followers with too much. Something happened about a month ago to change my mind on that front, which is why I’ve decided to take a different approach to facets of my writing, as well as my shamanic work.

Uruz – Auroch – A year ago this month is the last time Uruz appeared as The Weekly Rune. As I am fond of saying, anytime the wild things show up, it’s about to go big. Uruz is the second Rune in the First Aett (though some argue that it’s the first–do discuss!). The point of mentioning its position in the futhark is we’re dealing with giants, and in Old Icelandic cosmology, they are the real movers and shakers. So when I say big, I mean gigantic.
