For the week of 6 December 2015

Be thyself, this week.

Isa is the half-month rune, through 13 December. 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 Isa, followed by Mannaz reversed 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.

We’ve had a lot of reversals, lately. Ansuz reversed last week was a doozy of tangled intentions and garbled communication of them. This week Mannaz reversed pushes us to think for ourselves.

In the midst of the last of the winter runes, we round in on deeply needed insight. I’m talking late into the night, wee hours, gnashing of teeth, release into wisdom we’ve had all along, insight.

That’s the thing about Isa, and all of the winter runes, really. They get a bad rap for being shadowy and bringing this fury of stagnation with explosive change, yet it’s change we knew was needed. We knew it was coming. Given that, Isa is more about being very clear on what’s really important, what’s really needed, and getting out of its way so that it can manifest.

The work in setting up that self has been done, and Mannaz reversed indicates that. Mannaz is about community, connecting with people and consciousness with which we are not already affiliated. It indicates that our thoughts are on the right track. Reversed, it means slow down. Don’t overthink, and know that the deciding factors aren’t going to come from an external influence. They will come from within.
