For the week of 1 May 2016
Expect supported change, this week.
Laguz is the half-month rune through 14 May. Gebo is the stave indicating the planet’s needs, and Hagalaz is the intuitive stave. Read right to left is Laguz, Gebo, then Hagalaz.
The half-month rune is set by the runic calendar, and governs for a tad over two weeks. The planetary stave indicates the state of the planet. The intuitive stave 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.
Following is a summary of The Weekly Rune. Read the full runecast for more details on how these runes impact human life force over the next week, and how to best manage the curves and twists.
My new year-long Intensive Reclaiming the Runes – Putting the ‘Elder’ Back in Futhark is now available! This Intensive is focused on teaching the story of the runes in as full an Old Norse context as possible, and instructing on how to work with them as a personal tool for growth, and a facilitator of gaining insight for others. If you’re not ready to commit to a full year, check out the one-month pilot preview course starting 1 June, and see if it’s right for you!
Over the last few weeks, the runes have mapped the rocky terrain of personal change. Laguz serves to facilitate us through those jagged edges and into a space that we can better be carried by resources available to us.
As the half-month stave, Laguz gives a natural time that we could be in flow with elemental currents. We don’t have to feel that we’re carrying the load ourselves, or that there’s too much to carry. I say that fully qualified with a modal auxiliary, as it’s our choice to recognize that help is there, and to allow it to support us. If we can’t slow down and take a minute to realize that we could be in flow, flow may as well not even be there.

Gebo in the position of the planet’s needs is refreshing. Since incorporating this rune into the cast, its requests have been tinged with shadow. We all on some level realize we’ve reached a point of no return in the imprint humans have left on the planet, though we may not realize there’s still potential for partnership. Gebo is perfect balance in relating, which means not projecting what we think the planet should be, what its destiny should be. Our role at this time is to look around and see what the state of things truly is, and to act in concert with how we can support. We’re generally aware of what support we need. Shift that focus a bit, and see where support to Mother Earth can be given. Even the smallest ways count.
Hagalaz as the intuitive stave hints at change. Very much connected to blunt external/environmental change, this rune comes after a long internal shifting. Weaving wyrd always starts within. Only when we’ve really struck upon the balance of that work does it manifest in external change. The time of that manifestation is now.
Go with the flow. Find the places to give, and hold open the space for wanted change.
