The Weekly Rune – Tiwaz-Berkana

Tiwaz is the half-month rune through 14 March, at which point Berkana moves to the fore until 30 March. The intuitive rune is Ansuz reversed. The earthly spirit of place anchoring the runes this week is Human Heart (ceramic heart rattle), in the direction of Above (cloud marble), with element Plant (caloglossa moss, in the season of Summer (tree button). From right to left are Berkana (carved cedar stave) above Tiwaz below, then Ansuz reversed (carved ceramic tile). Metal just wanted to be along for the ride.

Remember that even as we sit with what the runes mean and how we’re in relationship with them in season, the presence of a certain rune doesn’t have to dictate what will happen in its half-month. Rather, it provides a small window of opportunity for us to explore what that rune might teach us about our current circumstances or needs.

With Tiwaz comes sacrifice, thus grief, also memories of power, comradery, and kinship that no longer suit who we are. The most difficult aspects of Tiwaz are those memories of something great, going to battle for to protect what they symbolize, only to realize mid-conflict that another approach must be allowed so that the relationship can become what it needs to for current needs. Ultimately this is the rune of an OG godden, who when confronted with the battle of his life succeeded at his intentions, but only after he dropped his ego and did what was required for his community.

The Weekly Rune – Tiwaz

Tiwaz is the half-month rune through 14 March. The intuitive rune is Ingwaz. The earthly spirit of place anchoring the runes this week is Fossilized Ammonite (spiraly thing), in the direction of Within (spirit doll), with element Mycelium (acrylic mushrooms), in the season of Summer (tree button). From right to left are Tiwaz (carved lapis lazuli), then Ingwaz.
Most of us don’t seem to feel seen in our current systems, and this week with Tiwaz speaks directly to that. We fully emerge in the third aett, the Aett of Reckoning (my words, not canon), in which we know the deal of formed being. We know the formative bliss of souling-in-form of the first aett, followed by the agency-slinging-fest of the second. We know that the bulk of our time in form is going to be navigating second-aett dynamics, and that we have to actively draw on our experience of the first aett to get through it. The process of doing exactly that is the reckoning of the third aett, and it starts right out of the gate with the sacrifice of Tiwaz.

Tiwaz – Tyr/Thor/Tuisto- At the risk of being repetitive, this week’s Rune is again Tiwaz.   As you recall from last week, Tiwaz is about second winds. It’s about realizing that best-laid plans and heart-centered dreams just are not going to be, and...

Tiwaz – Tyr/Thor/Tuisto- Yes! This Rune radiates such great movement and follow through, I don’t even know where to start. Last week was a doozy of conflicting energies, clashing needs, and highlighted areas for improvement. For some of us, Tiwaz likely...
