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.
