For the week of  21 August 2016

Listen, flow, say the sages.

Ansuz is the half-month rune through 29 August.  Laguz is the intuitive stave, and Othala reversed is the stave indicating the planet’s needs. Read right to left is Ansuz, Laguz, then Othala reversed.

The half-month rune is set by the runic calendar, and governs for a tad over two weeks. 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. The planetary stave indicates the state 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.

Last week, we used our words carefully. The powers of a spell, Ansuz has, and knowing how, when, and where to evoke just the rights words for what we want is key to its magick.

LReclaiming the Runes Preview Course, Spirited Paths, by Soul Intent Artsaguz, upright, is a particularly busy element. Representing water, it gives us the image of water flowing within its banks. We have movement, a somewhat controlled setting, and elemental support for those things to sustain.

Othala reversed sheds a great deal of light on what’s needed, at this time. Sounding the planet’s voice of wisdom, this stave reminds us not to forget the hard work and insight of those who went before us. All-focused on ancestry, in the merkstave position, it nudges us to actually engage the ancestors in our present. They took to their graves wisdom we have no idea about, and that’s the bit of info needed to really put the formula of spell work right.

Such is what we need, what the ancestors need, the dynamic, the planet. When we approach our own spell working, truth-speaking, with forward and hind wisdom, we give it greater opportunity to flow, to go out into the world and do its best–for us all.
