For the week of 22 October 2017

Joy under pressure.

Wunjo is the half-month stave through 28 October. Ingwaz is the intuitive stave, and Fehu reversed indicates Nature’s message to us. Read right to left is Wunjo, Ingwaz, then Fehu Reversed.

With a paid subscription, also receive TWR on Sunday instead of Monday, for as little as $1 a week, or for more engagement with me, such as regular Soul Readings, Sabbat Runecasts, and personal runecasts, choose one of the higher subscription levels.

The half-month rune is set by the runic calendar, and governs for a tad over two weeks (a fortnight). 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, and where noted, of Nature, well beyond the earthly sphere. If you’re curious about how I do the cast every week, catch a couple of Instagram videos I do explaining the intention behind The Weekly Rune, and what makes it different from other ways of casting.

Our time with Wunjo has been characterized by becoming comfortable with joy. This week we’re challenged to know joy under mixed circumstances. Meaning, we can feel joy and still be aware that everything isn’t quite right.

Last week’s runes provided an opportunity to level up our joy-allowing skills. This week the focus is slightly more nuances. Given that Isa was in the mix last week, we can progress to the blossoming part with Ingwaz. It encourages us to be more social, get new blood into things. New consciousness through finding a new social group is the focus. Existing folks in our lives may be able to appreciate our metamorphosis, though not likely. Overcome the obstacles keeping self from opening up to new people, and make that happen.

Fehu reversed as Nature’s message to us suggests we’re working from a place of lack, maybe not valuing resources we have. Along with Ingwaz’s suggestion to get new peeps on the task, Fehu reversed hints that we may not be using present resources to the best of their–or our–ability.

Fehu represents assets that must be tended. They don’t just do what they do on their own. We have to show up for them and make sure they’re truly flowing to us, and that they’re healthy. Nature advises we spend some time doing a resource inventory, this week.

Yes, we’re still in the throes of joyous Wunjo, though it’s framed with runes that remind us we can feel joy, be joyous in one life area, while still needing to be attentive to areas not so in sync. We are a more emotional range than a teaspoon, and that fact doesn’t have to mean things are amock.

We are soon coming upon the Samhain and the onset of the Dead Time. Join the Seidrkin level of my Patreon runework to receive the Samhain sabbat runecast, giving insight into the half-month and hourly staves of the day, and how to work with them for the season. If you have questions about how it works, feel free to contact me. Thanks for your support of The Weekly Rune!

Half-month Considerations

  • What does Wunjo mean to you?
  • How do you identify joy?
  • How do you allow it in your life?
