Weekly Rune – Sowilo

Posted by on 14 Oct 2013 in The Weekly Rune | 0 comments

Sowilo - Sun - How telling that we draw the Rune of light as the North embarks upon the Dark Time, and the South emerges back into light. Apart from initial dips of seasonal change, we’re also nearing the next Mercury retrograde, which astrologer, Gary Caton, refers to as our opportunity to make the unconscious conscious. It is perhaps this nuance of Sowilo that most benefits us, now. Traditionally, this Rune reminds us, not just of the sun, but the power beyond it. As we marvel at the sun’s abilities to inspire life on Earth, we draw light from it so that we can shine on others. Such is the connection of All Things, as well as our collective purpose. Light...

Weekly Rune – Uruz

Posted by on 12 Aug 2013 in The Weekly Rune | 0 comments

Uruz - Auroch - Anytime the wild things show up, it’s about to go big.  An initiation is upon us. When we encounter this Rune, we are not only engaging base primal forces, we embody them. Part of the mystery and responsibility of being human–soul in form–is realizing our power. New Age culture has put great emphasis on honoring the soul, somewhat the mind, though significantly less the sacred nature of the body.

Weekly Rune – Nauthiz

Posted by on 5 Aug 2013 in The Weekly Rune | 0 comments

  Nauthiz - Need - Anytime this Rune comes up in a cast, I think it’s appropriate to examine where we are standing in our own way. We interpret it commonly as need, though Nauthiz provokes thought of what holds us back, what little irritation do we complain and fret over, yet we cling to for some unconscious reason. What we say we don’t want is often the one thing we refuse to change. In that light, this Rune becomes more about constraint, what holds us back. Nauthiz is related to the youngest of the Norns, Skuld, who is the keeper of what “should” be, which many interpret as the future. However, wordsmiths among us recognize...
