For the week of 22 October 2017
Joy under pressure.
Fehu – wealth – Interesting that Fehu, the rune of wealth, visits us reversed, as we move into Jupiter Retrograde, tomorrow (8 December 2014 – 9 April 2015). Jupiter is associated with luck, excess, and all things good fortune. While not exactly the same focus as Fehu, the tightening of belts, literally and figuratively, is felt. Note that Fehu is pictured brightstave.
Fehu – wealth – Well, this is new. For The Weekly Rune, Fehu has been rare, and we’ve never drawn a Rune, then had the same Rune reversed the next week. Note that Fehu is pictured brightstave, at left.
Reading Fehu reversed is fairly straightforward: when upside down, our possessions fall out of our pockets. Maybe that’s figurative; perhaps it’s literal. What’s certain is the frustration of the efforts of hard work falling through our fingers, and the refinement of focus from a dangling carrot to what assets are really needed at this time.
Yeah, I don”t like it either.
Let’s look at this a little more inclusively. We’ve been going through a Grand Cross, which peaked in April. For all practical purposes, we’re gliding down the other side of that now, with a little calmer feel about things. Now what?
With Fehu reversed, we’re standing amidst some personal wreckage. We’ve had some light shed on it, though we’re likely either unamused by what we see, or we simply don’t know how to put things together in a more functional way–hence, the frustration.
Stay attuned to transformation. Avoid the urge to just go back to the way things were. The whole reason everything went pear-shaped is because the way things were wasn’t working. This upheaval is the opportunity to find the best way to grow assets needed for support.
How can we carry our darlings differently?
How can we become more comfortable with the rhythm of letting them go, allowing them, or other treasure to return?
How can we better cope with that process?
I’m kind of bouncing up and down, because available now for pre-order on Amazon and other stores is my new book Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism. It releases worldwide 30 May, at which point I will bounce even more!
