The Weekly Rune – Sowilo

Sowilo is the half-month rune through 27 February. The intuitive rune is Raidho. The earthly spirit of place anchoring the runes this week is Honey Bee (heart vial), in the direction of Right/This Side/Atlantic Side/East (mossy dwarf), with element Air (feathers), in the season of Spring (tree button). The Beyond-earth support comes from Urd (Yggdrasil deck). From right to left are Sowilo (carved polymer clay tile), then Raidho. Sowilo has brought a lightness to our transition out of darkness that is timely, supportive, and not without its own demands. Closing the second aett, the aett of the agency circus and sheer chaos, Sowilo brings the only soothing moments. And the peace it brings begins with animistic reverence of the sun.

The Weekly Rune – Algiz-Sowilo

Algiz is the half-month rune through 12 February, at which point Sowilo moves to the fore until 27 February. The intuitive rune is Hagalaz. The earthly spirit of place anchoring the runes this week is Tree (carved Yggdrasil), in the direction of Beyond (Earth marble), with element Stone (amber chips), in the season of Spring (tree button). The Beyond-earth support comes from Source (pyrite sun). From right to left are Algiz above (carved, polished Amethyst), Sowilo below, then Hagalaz.

Where we’ve been scrambling to feel our Beyond-earth Allies, rooting into ecosystem for grounded relationships, and digging deeper within to align unconscious support, with the transition from Algiz to Sowilo this week we’re connecting all those dots for powerful community.

Algiz usually comes in as this fundamental reminder that we are supported and protected by ecosystem, that we are Nature. This cycle’s experience brought tones of that, for sure. The framing runes gave it a bit more bass though, along the lines of what we need to do to support ecosystem, what’s required on our end from them so that they sustain the fortitude to help us human well. Algiz has been a study in how Nature helps us tend it well, which in turn means we are all animisming well.

The Weekly rune – Sowilo

Sowilo is the rune of the sun, and as such, to live its energy seems like a challenge in how to give light without blinding, how to offer warmth without combustion, and how to foster growth without forgetting to rest. Yes, overall the experience of Sowilo is a positive, uplifting one, and our time with it speaks to boundaries around doing vs being. The medicine of ‘live’ and ‘rest’ is the alchemy of Sowilo.

The Weekly Rune – Sowilo

Berkana is asking us through Sowilo to outcreate where we’re going based on the most vulnerable person in the room. It’s asking that what patterns we outcreate, what systems, etc., that we do so not based on our own needs or desires, but on those of the most vulnerable person in the room. Because if that person’s needs are met, the needs of all else will be as well.
