Isa - Intentional Insights, Weekly Rune

The Weekly Rune – Isa

Isa – ice– Keep cool is the message from this last of the winter Runes. Tuck in and be comfortable, because we’re not going anywhere. I like a message that emphasizes relaxation; however, there’s a more to it than that. At this time, we’re challenged to find comfort in something not so comfy, and that’s not as easy as it sounds.

The Weekly Rune – Nauthiz

Nauthiz – Need – Visited just last month by this stave, we again find ourselves at a pause with this middle stave of the second ǽtt’s winter trio. Having greeted us several times this year, We’ve had many such pauses, and by now know to take them seriously.

Fehu - Intentional Insight's Weekly Rune by S. Kelley Harrell

The Weekly Rune – Fehu Reversed

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.

Othala - Intentional Insight's Weekly Rune

The Weekly Rune – Othala Reversed

Othala – property – It’s been a long time since Othala appeared as The Weekly Rune, particularly presenting as reversed. In fact, it was November of last year, at the start of the holiday season. Intriguing that it visits now, as we transition into Yuletide. Note that the image shows Othala upright, or bright-stave.

Weekly Rune - Uruz

The Weekly Rune – Uruz

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.

Weekly Rune - Perthro - Intentional Insights

The Weekly Rune – Perthro Reversed

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- Intentional Insight's Weekly Rune by S. Kelley Harrell

The Weekly Rune – Sowilo

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!

The Weekly Rune – Nauthiz

Nauthiz – Need –  Considering that the southeast has skipped early winter and plunged right into winter storm, it’s fitting that this middle stave of the second ǽtt’s winter trio shows up now to offer insight.

Kenaz - Intentional Insight's Weekly Rune by S. Kelley Harrell

The Weekly Rune – Kenaz Merkstave

Kenaz – Torch – As we emerge from Mercury retrograde, Kenaz merkstave arrives in time to put things into perspective. Usually regarded as meaning a spark of hope or enlightenment out of the blue, the emphasis of this stave is awareness emerging from pitch black. Note that Kenaz is brightstave in the photo.

The Weekly Rune – Hagalaz

Hagalaz – Hail – Blunt, external change is upon us this week. Whether it’s cooler weather settling into much of the northern hemisphere, a chill skating through life, or some other frozen state breaking wide open, the elements prod our wyrd bring a wake-up call.
