Closing the First Ætt

I don’t often make posts about seasonal runic transitions outside The Weekly RuneThe current episode of What in the Wyrd demands a bit of attention, though, because we’re closing out our experience of the first ætt. 

Closing an ætt is a big deal in rune mastery, and this particular one we’re experiencing now is ace because it indicates joy. The relationship between wyrdweaving and joy is important, and that’s the topic of the current episode, Wunjo and Wyrdweaving. Its importance isn’t just to give us a brief breath of relief from a hard jaunt to self-mastery, but also to instill us with a way of being that allows us to tap into joy, as needed. In that light it really isn’t about the outcome, but the process.

I invite you to listen to the episode, and let me know how you experience Wunjo. For you, how is joy created, woven, and sustained even when it passes?
