The Weekly Rune
For the week of 4 March 2018
Redo, meaning, and might.
Tiwaz is the half-month stave through 14 March. Dagaz is the intuitive stave, and Thurisaz indicates the planet’s message to us. Read right to left is Tiwaz, Dagaz, then Thurisaz.

There, find more detail on how the current runes impact human life force over the next week, and how to best manage the curves and twists therein. With a paid subscription, also receive TWR on Sunday instead of Monday, for as little as $1 a week, or for more engagement with me, such as regular Soul Readings, Sabbat Runecasts, and personal runecasts, choose one of the higher subscription levels.
The half-month rune is set by the runic calendar, and governs for a tad over two weeks (a fortnight). The intuitive stave (meaning, I draw it blind) indicates the life force most available to us, which brings the focus of the half-month rune into sharper focus for the present week. It suggests how we can handle these energies. The planetary stave (also a blind draw) indicates the state and needs of the planet, and where noted, of Nature, well beyond the earthly sphere.
If you’re curious about how I do the cast every week, catch a couple of my Instagram videos, which explain the intention behind The Weekly Rune, and what makes it different from other ways of casting.
And yes, you’re right, I do have new runes! Thanks for noticing! About a year ago a friend mentioned “steel runes” to me, and it was all over. I knew it was a matter of time. I felt them immediately. Last fall I commissioned them from Patrick Brown, and I got them the other day. They are amazing, and the next episode of my What in the Wyrd podcast will detail my courtship with them. The podcast is available across all popular podcast platforms, including Google Play and iTunes. The latest episode focuses on Readying for Calling.
This week’s cast is an awesome continuation of last week’s opener with Tiwaz. This half-month is characterized by the sagas the likes of near misses, tragic clashes, and pulling it all out of the flames. It really is the stuff of drama, though it doesn’t mean our lives are a flaming trauma. It can mean we have this seasonal reminder to rise. We can make a different choice–and should. We are capable of radical change that genuinely does put us on the best footing possible for what we want to accomplish right now, and the support to do it is abundant.
Dagaz revisits us this week in support of Tiwaz. Meaning “day,” its emphasis is on confronting what was productive in our day and what wasn’t. The challenge it brings it to re-arrange tomorrow based on that intel. As with Tiwaz, it demands that we take action. The opportunity is there, though we have to see it and move in accordance with it.
No matter how we look at it, the gears need to change, and the only thing in the way of that happening is ourselves. When we can allow that, we will be more in sync with what we want from our day-to-day. We will be more capable of creating it from a new place.
Thurisaz brings the gusto to make that all happen. From the unconscious depths of our rumbling primal selves comes the force of Thurisaz. Often people encounter Thurisaz and feel intimidated by it–with good reason. Symbolized by the lightning strike, it’s the result of Thor’s swung hammer. It’s the elements come together with a bang. The thing is, that can be under our control. It can be to our benefit. Because it’s our unconscious, we have the potential to decode and understand what it’s asking for. Thread this back into the current demands of Tiwaz, and we’ve got pretty good momentum to carry through on evoking change.
This week’s runes are ultimately about going with hard flow. It’s easy when things are all Laguz and naturally lilting along. With Tiwaz, nothing’s lilting. It’s not been lilting for a while. The question is, how tired of that are we? The support of Dagaz helps us make the change we need to, and Thurisaz brings the might to see it through to our benefit.
- How do you allow ease?
- What’s your unconscious saying this week?
- How can you express it healthily?
In case you missed it–I was a panelist on the Runes Round Table last week, on Blog Talk Radio. It was a great discussion with several seasoned runesters, who work with different futharks, and brought different uses of the runes to the table. I learned a great deal from it, and I think you will enjoy it, too.
Ask about studying the runes with me.
