For the week of 26 March 2017

Challenges to creating the best self.

Berkana is the half-month stave through 30 March, at which point Ehwaz moves forward. Perthro reversed is the intuitive stave, and Algiz reversed indicates the planet’s message to us. Read right to left is Berkana above, Ehwaz below, Perthro reversed, then Algiz reversed.

The half-month rune is set by the runic calendar, and governs for a tad over two weeks. The intuitive stave (meaning, I draw it blind) indicates the life force most available to us, which brings the focus of the half-month rune into sharper focus for the present week. It suggests how we can handle these energies. The planetary stave (also a blind draw) indicates the state and needs of the planet.

The Runic Calendar - March - by S. Kelley Harrell, Soul Intent ArtsBerkana has shown us the importance of using downtime to process the closure of life, emotional, and spiritual initiation. As we move into the time of Ehwaz later in the week, we’re given the greenlight to take that experience deeper.

The rune of shamanic journey, Ehwaz is about going into the deepest animistic expression available. It may require literal ecstatic travel, or it may just request that we be aware of the deeper presences and engagement available to us.

The caution to us from the ethers is in the form of Perthro reversed, which speaks of the factors that have added up to now. Interpreted as luck in the modern vernacular, it really points to everything that has added up to Now. To the Old Norse it was more complicated. MANY factors create our reality. We create how we respond to them.

This is the memo of Perthro reversed. Something in that combination is amiss, and likely not aligned with what we think we want. Maybe what we think we want is unclear. Wade through layers of self, to the same end. If it doesn’t add up, learn how to be effective in that process. Contact me, if I can help with that.

Algiz reversed, as the insight of the planet, underscores the need to circle the wagons on what’s wanted. Some component of our wyrd equation isn’t just not adding up to our desire, it’s actively conspiring against us fulfilling it. Somewhere on the horizon threat has been identified, and it needs to be dealt with. It won’t just go away.

Revisit, tweak, revise, and move on. This is the way of Nature. No set course is permanent.
