A Simple New Year Divination with the Runes

Divination Year 2019

Winter being traditionally a time of uncertainty rather than a time of rejoicing, it was customary in many parts of the world to do some divination work during that time.

Those who nowadays think of divination as a fun past time are fools. As I have said before: Runes don’t lie! Not only that but they do require dedication and respect to truly reveal themselves to the seeker. Divination is an art form and beyond the foretelling of future events, it’s also about knowing & mastering the self.

That said, I did pull out my Runes for a simple divination about the new year, as a hint of what the future may hold for me in 2019. A Rune per month is all that is required, but you can draw more for a more detailed reading.

The reading itself can be as simple or as complex as you wish. I personally like to interpret each Rune on 3 levels: physical (interactions with the world & health), psycho-emotional and spiritual. Of course, sometimes the edges can be blurred between them.

As far as my own reading goes (and without getting into personal details): I’m currently in a transition which is affecting me more than I would like (and shows in the first 4 months) and should lead to a physical relocation (which I have been anticipating). The Summer (between May & August) looks rather promising but something challenging & transformative will happen early Fall (September & October) but considering the next 2 Runes (which are positive), this could be triggered by an external event or a person.

Hope your reading is as promising as mine…

Tea & Runes: Weekly Forecast (September 10th-September 16th 2018)

Sept 10th Forecast
INGUZ ~ JERA ~ ANSUZ

Before we start, please remember that this forecast reading is a general trend that may or may not apply to you specifically. For a personalized reading, feel free to contact me.

This week begins with a cup of green rooibos tea (which tastes a bit like green tea minus the caffeine, and is loaded with minerals…Not to mention that it has medicinal properties) and the rippling effect of Saturday’s New Moon in Virgo. Fall is settling in while the energy of Summer is exiting the scene. With it comes a sense of renewal bathed in practicality. Something may have been lingering all Summer in a corner of your mind, now the idea is becoming clearer an INGUZ is giving it a ‘body’ so to speak as this concept is germinating and slowly manifesting into the physical. There is a sense of awakening that comes with it. Exploration and the widening of your horizon are the keys (while what no longer serves or excites you is vanishing with the last remains of Summer).

As the week progresses, INGUZ evolves into JERA. While you want to get that momentum going, there is no freestyling here but guidelines to follow: for your own safety but also to ensure the success of your new idea/venture. You can’t go full steam without carefully thinking about all aspects of it. Here you are being asked to apply the lessons you have learned from the past (otherwise history is bound to repeat itself and your beautiful dream will disappear as quickly as a mere thought). Consider all the angles, apply knowledge & wisdom, and if needed, find some reliable allies that will support your vision and benefit from it as well (follow your gut on that one).

However, ANSUZ is warning you not to say too much! A/ Because people could steal your idea and make it their own, and B/ they could also use their influence on you, your thoughts and/or project…Which will turn it into something else. So, don’t get too chatty, too excited or too cocky about it. You may well end up getting too distracted to actually walk the talk and do the work. ANSUZ‘s lesson here is that it’s best to apply reserve: you know better than anyone what you want, and where you want to go with your venture. So choose your words wisely and remember that the silence is golden…

Runic Haiku for this Week:

“The seed of novelty will grow on the fertile soil of the learned lessons if wisdom is applied and words kept few.”

The Rune of the Week: Sowelu (August 6th – August 12th Forecast)

Rune of the Week - Sowelu Most of us have forgotten that Magic lies all around us and within us as well.

In order to tap into this Universal Magic, we must be willing to pay attention to the little signs (carefully placed or misplaced) amidst our everyday routine.

We have to be willing to listen to and give some credence to the little voice within.

But most importantly, we need to be able to not only acknowledge our desires & dreams but to take them from the dark corners of the imaginative mind to broad daylight where they can become a reality and be blessed under the Sun.

Sowelu/Success is Magic and you are the Witch/Wizard of your own Life. You can create it, destroy it, recreate it or start anew anytime. What Magic Spell you will be chanting is your own choice but be fully aware that this is all real. Then watch the Great Unfolding…

The Rune of the Week: Wunjo (July 30th – August 5th Forecast)

Wunjo

What would you give or give up in order to be happy and have the thing(s), situation and/or person that you desire? This is the question being brought up by Wunjo, this week’s Rune.

Some people would give away all their earthly possessions in a split second, while others would go as far as selling their own soul. We tend to believe that our personal happiness and the granting of our wishes depend solely on external factors. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

The Rune of the Week - Wunjo

You are the one who holds the key to unlock everything you can dream of, deep inside yourself. Nobody can steal that from you but nobody can make things happen for you either. Don’t be afraid to dream big even if everybody around you thinks you’re a fool. Let them believe what they want, you know better.

It will require a strong will, inner strength, and dedication but if you can take a small step forward everyday toward the realization of your goals and dreams (note that we are currently in the Runic month of Thurisaz, which is about focus and perseverance), it will eventually become a reality.

And if that dream of yours happen to be aligned with Cosmic Laws and the fulfillment of your life’s purpose, then things are bound to happen.

Weekend Ogham : Spindle / Oir (July 28th & 29th 2018)

Weekend Ogham Spindle July2018
Image from ‘The Green Man Tree Oracle”

“Destiny moves us to do great things.”

Destiny is not set in stone and those who are familiar with the concept of the “Web of Wyrd” know that one’s fate can be altered and that conscious co-creation of reality and one’s future can be achieved by taking one’s fate in one’s own hands (and working with the Norns).

“To understand the nature of our destiny, we can observe our life’s work and experience, our aims, gifts, and desires.”

Interestingly, this Ogham graphically resembles one of the ways to write the Rune Jera. It reminds us that the Wheel is always turning, nothing is ever set in stone (even if unpleasant circumstances always seem to last forever), and that it’s never too late to follow one’s dream(s). Your core, your heart is your compass throughout life.

Tomorrow we will be entering the Runic month of Thurisaz, which will require more focused energy from each of us. But once we answer our soul’s calling, synchronicities suddenly start happening and everything slowly starts falling into place…

On Finding & Adapting One’s Natural Rhythm

Sibyls_Rhythm
From ‘The Sibyls Oraculum’

Something that was started must be brought to completion, no matter the distractions, the obstacles and the setbacks on the path.

The key to reaching one’s goal without strain on the mindbody or spirit is to follow one’s own natural rhythm and adapt accordingly to the situation.

‘Natural rhythm is the ability to sustain the right momentum despite changes and pauses in the environment. ‘

Rune of the Week (July 23rd – July 29th Forecast)

Please keep in mind that the following is a general trend that may or may not apply to you personally

The Rune of the Week - Laguz

This week’s Rune is LAGUZ, whose divinatory meanings are all about intuition, dreams, fantasies, illusions & delusions, spirituality & emotions. LAGUZ is a water Runes, which complements the rather earthy URUZ.

This time we are going even deeper into the (self) healing process as LAGUZ is asking us to go to the places of discomfort and hurt, dealing with our repressed/suppressed emotions, sexual issues, and unfulfilled dreams.

Laguz

Be aware that unaddressed issues, even if kept buried deeply in a hidden corner or your mind & soul are still there nonetheless, weighing down on you. And they will re-emerge at the most inopportune of times when something will trigger them (it can be a word, a memory, a situation, even a person).

So why keep carrying unnecessary burdens that hinder our growth, wellbeing & happiness? Why keep invoking (even unknowingly) the dark fairy of ‘bad juju’ when all we want is to be able to find inner peace and move on with our lives?

The solution is simple: face your fears/inner demons and roll the dice! Change is at hand if you really want it. The wheel is always turning and new doorways, paths, people and/or opportunities will appear as long as you are willing to do the (healing) work.

Weekend Ogham : Fearn (July 21st & 22nd 2018)

Weekend Ogham Fearn - Alder

Fearn / the Alder has long been associated with divination and the gift of prophecy (it is also connected to Ravens). We are all born intuitive, and it is up to us to reawaken & strengthen this natural ability of ours.

As a water tree, it is connected to the Rune Laguz, which reinforces the idea of going inward and trusting the information shared within. The water element also has to do with emotions and healing.

This weekend Ogham is in the continuity of this week’s Rune, which was Ansuz – Rune of knowledge, communication & inspiration associated with Odin & his Ravens. And we are still in the Runic month of Uruz, which supports (self) healing. In case you missed it, you can read the blog post HERE.

Moon & Rune Reading: Last Quarter of the Moon in Pisces/Othila (June 2018)

LQ June2018

In today’s reading, I find that all the elements seem to back each other.

This is the Last Quarter of the Moon which can be somewhat of an awkward time. It’s a time of adjustments and possible re-evaluation of our goals and/or what has been achieved so far this month. And if it wasn’t enough already, the Moon is in Pisces which adds an extra layer of confusion and possible disconnection with reality.

In the midst of this mental fog, the Rune Teiwaz stands up and shows the way to follow. Teiwaz speaks about doing the right thing and finding balance, especially during this awkward Moon time. You may feel challenged on multiple levels: with your identity & values (we are, after all, still in the Runic month of Othila), as well as our perception of what is real and/or what is mere fantasy…Some can even feel completely lost without even knowing why. Fears & phobias (fed by your insecurities and the subconscious) may well arise with this Pisces Moon. Your mission is to recognize the pattern & understand what is going on, and you’ll know that this is just a (psychotic) phase. Framing, naming & facing those fears is especially beneficial today on this 6/6 portal (June 6th).

Want more? The Architect of Vessels is requesting that you address your emotions, as they make you human and allow you to connect with others. Empathy & compassion are gifts. But Teiwaz once again is here to keep you in check. As it reminds you not to go overboard with your feelings & emotions. In short: don’t let them take precedence on your behavior & thinking process.

In the eventuality that all hell breaks loose around you & nothing makes sense anymore: trust your intuition, it should be your reliable compass. And hang in there, the Moon will be transitioning to Aries tomorrow…
