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, and where noted, of Nature, well beyond the earthly sphere.
Fehu, “wealth,” is a welcome stave in everyone’s cast. Lucky for us that this time of year is reserved for focus on just that–and we all have the opportunity to benefit. It begins a new year-long initiation into the seasonal cycle, and carries the potential to set us up well for it.
Therein lies the rub of Fehu. Its mere appearance can indicate a prosperous time, though it more carries the connotation that now’s the time to be focused on tending what we have. In other words, it brings work, which we’ve learned by now, all the runes do. At this time, Fehu is asking us to get savvy with our stuff. Clarify what actions need to be taken to secure it, invest it, and become more educated about how to do all of the aforementioned. What we do with what we have right now determines not just what we can do with it throughout the year, but possible how we make out at year’s end.
Algiz suggests we bring this relationship not just deeper, but closer, as it represents guardianship of the home front. Originating as “elk” or “sedge,” both indigenous, protective nature allies, it suggests that we seat so deeply and completely with our home front that we become it. We’re charged to stand in our power in the Innangarðr (known territory), and actively engage the Nature allies and spirits of our home, so that we’re not doing it all alone. in fact, we’re not supposed to do it alone, and this stave reminds of us of that fact.
Othala is where this cast gets really interesting. The quintessential home stave, it directs our focus to the ancestors, literally with matters of estate, but also of soul. Where Fehu is the assets that must be tended, Othala is what can be passed down, inherited.
If healing and clearing hasn’t been done, do it now for the ancestors to be an active part of the spiritual council. Need help with that–let me know. Call in the ancestor best fit to guide on the issues currently at hand. Ask how they dealt with it, and how their wisdom can be applied now. Do the healing work on self to carry it out.
Legacies die out because no one tended them. This week make use of the available resources not only to secure current assets and legacy, but to create both.
