For the week of 30 August 2015

Plans laid shape the story this week.

First off, I want to thank everyone for the kind words and notes I’ve received over the last month. My surgery and recover has gone well. While physical therapy is really hard, everything is looking good. I’m grateful to have had wonderful support on many levels. I’m back to writing The Weekly Rune real-time, and it feels good!

Raidho remains the half-month rune through 13 September. Read right to left is Raidho, then Jera.

The full runecast is available through Patreon.  The full cast is more detailed, gives more insight into the half-month rune’s influence, and for $5 a month, receive it before everyone else.  Find my more of my runic artwork on Etsy.

The focus of the spring and summer has been seating into a new self. It’s gone through every iteration imaginable to bring it into being, deal with the reactions of loved ones and friends, ground self in spite of sed reactions, and make peace with our own psyches wanting to turncoat on Who We Want to Be. This week, Jera encourages laying a solid plan for how that’s going to happen, and Raidho fills in the details.

Words are all we have when it comes to overt communicate in our world. However, the process of what happens before we speak, before we commit pen to paper is what is highlighted this week. Jera encourages us to lay clear plans for ourselves. Recall it is the half-month rune native at Winter Solstice, which carries with it associations of impeccable inventory. Know what’s available; create a supply avenue for what isn’t. Realize what works; apply a system to improve it. Clarify resources; generate new ones and give up unneeded ones. All of this hearth math allows perfect clarity on what’s possessed and what’s needed. Knowing that, the story can be told.

This week consider all the shedding of what isn’t authentic, and the awkward fitting into what truly is. With that work behind, think about the story that has to be told. Who’s in it? Who isn’t? Is the destination of life the same, or has it changed? Be flexible in holding what feels true and what feels secure. The advent of Jera as the intuitive stave indicates that sincere heart-centered plans are supported by the Powers That Be, at this time. The clearer we can be in discerning those plans, the more support we have in implementing them.
