For the week of 15 March 2015
I’m so happy to see these runes, I could cry. I mentioned last week that having Berkano on the horizon as the half-month influence was inspiring; however, its predecessor, Tiwaz, was no joke. The fact that Wunjo blesses us with joy this week is just sweet bliss.
Berkano remains the half-month rune through 30 March. To learn more about the half-month rune’s influence and my other work with the runes, visit Patreon.
Read right to left in the image is Berkano, followed by Wunjo.
Wunjo is the stave of joy. The last rune of the first aett, it indicates having come through a time of visceral internal transformation, and realized that we actually came through it. We survived.
For the record, Wunjo comes up about once a year as The Weekly Rune. That alone is telling about how precious it is.
The glory of this stave isn’t just the realization that we’ve come through deep change. It’s also that we’ve been given the perspective to see a long-held ideal from a new angle. It’s that we’ve been given the chance to see ourselves from a new angle. Basking too deeply in success may not allow the true maturity this rune brings to come through.
This week there’s nothing to fix, nothing to plan. There’s no need whatsoever to look forward or back. Dues are paid. Relief is real. Kick back. Empty the mind, and enjoy that reflection in the mirror.
You did this.
