Uruz – Auroch – Having moved through last week’s question posed by Perthro, this week The Weekly Rune gives us the momentum to act on that answer. 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. They are unconscious urges. So when I say big, I mean gigantic.
Perthro – chance – Clients laugh when I call Perthro the “What do you think?” Rune. I can never tell if it’s because they think I’m joking, or if it’s nervous laughter in anticipation of having to divulge what they really think. In truth, that awkward uncertainty is the very essence of Perthro. Note that the stave is pictured brightstave.
Sowilo – Sun – Sowilo – Sun – It’s telling that the stave presenting itself as the North Hemisphere moves into darkness, as the Southern Hemisphere moves into the light, is Sowilo. Impressive, how our vantage point of the sun determines so much about our lives!
