Ingwaz (or Inguz) – People of Ing – Lie low this week. Whatever trail of change has been blazed, be assured that the end results are in sight. Ingwaz cautions us to stay attentive to those last few details, dotting the i’s, crossing the t’s, so that as we round the corner to the finish line, we can know we’ve covered all of the deeper concerns.
Drawing on deep inspiration, Ingwaz may not seem to have the desired momentum, the go-getter drive we want right now. However, all good plans must be carefully laid. Think of this time as the gestation of dreams. The basic framework is in place, born of dramatic change, likely intense work. Final touches gloss on more slowly, gently, intentionally. It is all coming together, just stay attuned to the inspiration driving it all, and move as led.
Ingwaz is what I call a ‘hinge’ Rune, in that it’s about that tiny space–or maybe nonspace–between Here—> and <—There. It’s not so much about the events themselves, where we started, or where we end up. It’s about how the whole process changes us inside. It’s about finding that well of nonspace, the inner Void where we create ourselves every day, and conscientiously, intentionally beginning that creation process again.
