For the week of 10 January 2016
Know the formula to evoke change, this week.
Eihwaz is the half-month rune through mid-week, 13 January, after which Perthro moves fore. The half-month rune is set by the traditionally accepted runic calendar, and governs for a tad over two weeks. Read right to left is Eihwaz above, Perthro below, followed by Jera as the intuitive stave. The intuitive stave brings the focus of the half-month rune into sharper focus for the present week.
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.
Likewise, sign up to get all the details for my new year-long Intensive Reclaiming the Runes – Putting the ‘Elder’ Back in Futhark. 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.
Winter Solstice saw us through the half-month transition from Jera to Eihwaz, to Perthro. It visits us again now as the intuitive stave, with a slightly different emphasis.
Remember also, that Jera, Eihwaz, then Perthro are the native order of these staves in the Elder Futhark. Where Jera is the acquisition of tools, perhaps allies, Eihwaz indicates a deep reality check. It’s the rune of the True Self, or High Self, and marks the point in that natural order that we realize we are our best resource. We can have all the spirit guides and tools possible; the final decision to engage, to move, must come from ourselves.
Perthro is the synergy of these influences. The whole reason we become capable of possessing tools (Jera) is because we’ve done some work, some effective thing that benefits us and All Things. We’ve worked wyrd [Eihwaz] in a way that restores balance. We faced the unknown armed only with our wisdom and experience, and we awaited the outcome.
This week we are reminded that we have control over ourselves, and how we respond to our pasts. This would be a good week to focus on healing ancestral lines, and learning how we can bring them into balance. The less we feel the wounds of those who went before us, the more power we have available to us in the present, the better we can prepare those who follow us.
