For the week of 6 November 2016

In support of new consciousness.

Hagalaz is the half-month rune through 13 November. Ingwaz is the intuitive stave, and Fehu indicates the planet’s needs. Read right to left is Hagalaz, then Ingwaz, followed by Fehu.

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 indicates the state and possibly needs of the planet.

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.

Hagalaz began the Dark Time,  which calls our attention to betwixt states, encourages us to examine our relationship to status quo, and reinforces that impermanence is the law of the land. It is the stave that begins Heimdalr’s ætt, which emphasizes that we know not just our places in the greater order of things, but that we actively carry it out. While we may feel the inner rumblings of our unconscious telling us what we most need, the lightning strike Hagalaz brings from outside is the motivator to make it happen.

Ingwaz plays a part in that realization and transition, as it is the sacred see come to fruition. It is the final point in a process of gestating a new and deeply needed consciousness. To understand what that consciousness may be, look to last week. Consider what dynamics were beginning in the heart. When that’s known, what comes next will be more evident.

The Runic Calendar - October - by S. Kelley Harrell, Soul Intent Arts

Giving us a hand with that work is Fehu, a rich resource offered by the planet. Significant to Fehu is we have to recognize wealth when it’s offered. We have to be willing to take it. Nature doesn’t question the benefit of rain. It just drinks. It doesn’t balk at the offering of sustenance. It just ingests.

Likewise, the planet indicates the need for us to give of our resources to support it. There’s plenty going on right now with Standing Rock, burst pipelines, and coal ash spills to become cognizant of how to support individuals and organizations who support the planet.  Through Fehu the planet reminds us that what we do for self impacts All. However we manifest supporting self, make it an offering worthy of us all.
