For the week of 30 April 2017

A supported groove goes a long way.

Laguz is the half-month stave through 14 May. Sowilo (Sowilu) is the intuitive stave, and Uruz indicates Nature’s message to us. Read right to left is Laguz, Sowilo, then Uruz.

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.

The Runic Calendar - May - by S. Kelley Harrell, Soul Intent ArtsThe drama of Tiwaz through February has settled quite a lot. Having come through the soothing of Berkana, the deep introspection of Ehwaz, and the social tune up of Mannaz, we’re finally in a place to make use of elemental support brought by Laguz.

Where Mannaz had us test drive our newly found awareness by at least lightly introducing it to the world, Laguz brings us some native support to stay with it.

Keep in mind that 5 May marks the true crossquarter known by various names. It’s most popularly celebrated on 1 May, as May Day. Regardless of which day it’s honored, the half-month is the same. For specific runes for the date and time, you can receive the 2017 Beltane Runecast by supporting The Weekly Rune through Patreon.

Drink. Take what’s offered now as help from the Multiverse–or however it presents itself. There’s, of course, no time or room to slack off. It’s not an opportunity to slow down or take a break. We can, though, take advantage of this growing season to help us sustain and further our work.

Sowilo underscores that great gift with a healthy dose of remembering our own divinity. Accept this elemental support from Laguz, and use it as a time to boost self back up. The last months have been rough, and they have demanded that we show up, throughout. And the thing is–we have. It’s a true testament to staying true to our core, facing the shadows around it, and staying the course through it all, still.

This week Nature underscores that personal boost with Uruz. Often associated with Audhumla, the sacred cow who manifest herself, then subsequently licked Ymir from the ice blocks of the void, it’s that very initiative we can claim. Nature is tenacious, and we are, as well. We are built to survive, and we’re driven to thrive.
