The Weekly Rune – Dagaz

This week we close in on June Solstice, which is Summer here in the North. Thursday 20 June at 4:50pm EST marks the moment, and as it’s such a huge moment in earth-timing. The Weekly Rune is available to all to read in-full this week. I always make solstice casts public, and hope that the information in them gives insight into the week, and also this pivotal half of the year. Follow the links to find the written and audio blog. As we delve into the runes of this cast, keep in mind that timing, as well as the overall significance of working with the runes in season. Even if working with a different runic calendar than the one I follow, they truly are pivotal in providing small containers of wisdom that we can approach as devotionals. A good resource on working with the runes in this way is my book, Runic Book of Days, which is available online and on shelves.

The Weekly Rune – Dagaz

For the week of 18 June 2023 Eldering the Weather Together  The Weekly Runecast is made public each Solstice. I hope you find it insightful and supportive for this June Solstice...

The Weekly Rune – Othala-Dagaz

Othala remains the half-month rune through 14 June, at which point Dagaz (carved polymer clay tile) moves to the fore until 29 June. Sowilo (Sowilu) is the intuitive rune, and Jera indicates Weather’s perspective. The spirits of place anchoring the runes this week are Wheel with element Poison, in the direction of Below (lapis lazuli), in the season of Autumn (tree button). Read right to left is Dagaz, Sowilo, then Jera.

Dagaz is the closing rune of this runic calendar. It represents a year in intentional relationship with the Futhark, a cycle of intentional relationship with Self and ecosystem, and deep faith in the runes as devotional allies in humaning well across season. It also heralds one of the most spectacular stellar events of the year, and brings wisdom for how to navigate it.
