The Weekly Rune – Nauthiz

When we sit with the full relationship happening in the cultural context of Nauthiz, the outcome of the needfire ritual has less emphasis than the ritual’s creation. The relationship centers the element of fire and human reverence for its power. They created the space for it by extinguishing all other fire, called it in by rubbing, then let it do what fire does: burn off what’s no longer needed, transmute what’s not beneficial.
