Raidho – travel – For the last month we’ve bounced between Eihwaz and variations on Raidho, only to find ourselves back at Raidho reversed this week.
Eihwaz – Yew – Do you see the pattern we’re in? Three weeks ago, Eihwaz visited, followed by Raidho, then Raidho reversed. We’ve been on a journey through our shadowlands, and this week we’re nudged to draw a conclusion about it.
Raidho – travel – Well, that’s never happened before. The Weekly Rune has never presented a Rune, then its reversed position the next week. Most interesting about this is the promise of forward movement Raidho brought last week, and altered focus on detours this week. Note the photo shows Raidho brightstave.
Raidho – travel – Finally, some movement! For the last few casts, The Weekly Rune has brought messages of exploring shadow, and sitting with it. This week’s advent of Raidho says we can finally take all of that intel and do something with it.
Eihwaz – Yew – Eihwaz doesn’t come up often as The Weekly Rune, though it when it has, it always portends an end. Following on the heels of Kenaz reversed last week, our journey into shadow will end, as will some erroneous perception of ourselves.
Kenaz – Torch – It doesn’t take a weather man to point out the weather. Likewise, it’s no newsflash that the general climate is dark, right now. Usually a bright spark in an otherwise dark passage, Kenaz portends a breakthrough. Reversed, it encourages us to forget about breakthroughs and enlightenment, and just step into that darkness. Note that Kenaz is brightstave in the image.
Ehwaz – horse – In just over two years of The Weekly Rune Ehwaz has only visited once. As a result, I find it deeply informative that it presents itself at this time. Concerned with all things totemistic, transportational, and trustworthy, this stave is about getting ready for the ride.
Othala – property – Othala reminds us of what is most important: where we come from, and where we’re going. Where Fehu brings awareness to wealth that must be tended–assets, and investments–Othala focuses on that which we own, that which in many ways tends us–property we inherit, then pass on.
