The Weekly Rune – Hagalaz

Hagalaz is the half-month rune through 13 November. The intuitive rune is Laguz. From right to left is Hagalaz, then Laguz. The earthly spirits of place anchoring the runes this week are Death (plastic skull), whispers of the Hunt (stag button), dead things (not pictured), World Ancestors (wee wooden spoon), and Key in the direction of Back/South (golden dwarf), with element Acid (lemon zest), in the season of Winter (tree button).

This week we’re deep into Hagalaz and quickly feeling the pressure of the second aett. The first three runes of this aett are a wintry trio of harshness, focus, and stillness–fun combo! They set us up for how we fare with the remainder of the aett, which means for how well we cope with navigating the affectivity of others. Where we got comfy with the idea of having agency in the first aett, the second one reminds us sharply that our agency isn’t separate from that of others. What we do with ours reverberates out into everyone else with impact, just as the impact of theirs ripples back to us.

Allowing Autumn

When we cheerlead the ecosystem as it does its thing, we’re more intentionally part of it, IT can be bigger. It can be more enlivened with all who participate. In this way, human-persons play a role in seasonal change.
