Rosemary is a wonderful herbal ally during winter time. It’s a warming herb that stimulates blood circulation among other medicinal properties.
Rosemary also helps with focus and mental clarity. As an herb of remembrance, it helps to tap into buried memories (great for past life or ancestral work).
Last but not least, it helps clear negative energy.
From a Runic Healing standpoint and generally speaking, I associate rosemary with the rune Raidho on a physical level, the rune Dagaz on a psychological level and the rune Algiz on a spiritual level.
I know it’s been a while…But my attention was needed elsewhere and a lot has happened in just the last 2-3 weeks (the good & the bad).
But we’re not here to talk about me so let’s talk about today’s Full Moon, shall we?
The Moon is currently in Sagittarius, which supports freedom in all its guises. Which mean that it’s an auspicious time to be adventurous and take risks. If you’ve been thinking about starting a new project, a business…etc, now is the right time to do so. But remember the old saying ” the silence is golden”? You can talk a bit about it but not too much! And keep your pride in check as well!
We just entered the Runic month of Othila, which is about what makes you who you are: your ethics, your values, your personality…So this new venture of yours will be reflecting who you are deep down inside. Whatever it is that you are working on, make sure to align your thoughts, your intentions, and your actions. If you’ve been going through some kind of crisis and/or need to redefine yourself, Othila can help you in that endeavor.
No matter what your current situation may be, the Four of Vessels is pointing out the need to keep your head above the water so to speak. Don’t let people’s negativity or the current state of the world get to you (I know it’s sometimes easier said than done). If you feel a little lonely, just pick up your phone and surround yourself with people who are on the same wavelength, who appreciate you for who you are and support whatever you do or plan on doing. However, keep in mind that whatever is weighing you down needs to be named, acknowledged and dealt with at one point or another. But be conscious that you have all the resources you need within yourself and if you already know deep down inside what you need to do and where you need to tread, listen to your own voice above all and answer your own calling.
This Full Moon is supporting it as well as the Rune Dagaz, which speaks of overcoming obstacles and seeing things in a new light. It’s the air that you need to keep your head above the water (as I said earlier). Something is shifting within and around you (I can definitely feel it), whatever it is even if you can’t figure it out, know that it’s something positive. A veil has been lifted, the fog has burnt out, now you can see the sun rising on the horizon – what better omen can you get? With confidence and an optimistic mindset, success can be yours…

For this week’s reading, I’ve used The Earthen Runes Oracle Deck. I like the minimalistic design of this deck. I chose the black & white one but there is a color version as well.
The rules of this reading are the same as usual: have a look at the cards and see which one you feel connected to; it’ll be your card & subsequent forecast for the week.
Now keep in mind that these are general trends, which may or may not apply to you in every little detail. If you are interested in having a private reading (in person, via email or via Skype), feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Now let’s begin: which card do you feel drawn to?
~Let’s unveil card #1~
This week Othila may well be asking you to review & even redefine your personal values, who you are and what makes you who you are. If, until now, you’ve been avoiding the (wo)man in the mirror regarding these somewhat essential questions, there is no more escaping because you can’t make your next chess move without having clear answers. Chances are you may not be the super (wo)man you’re pretending to be and/or want people to perceive you. It’s ok: being aware will allow some room for growth & transformation. Why not model your new self after people (real or fictional) you admire? Othila being also about property, acquisitions, inheritance & security – if you are currently considering buying a house, acquiring something of value, investing financially in anything or simply signing a contract: this may not be the best time for you to do so. You could end up regretting impulse buys and other futile acquisitions. Once again, you need to sit down and consider the situation from a practical and realistic point of view. This will benefit you in the long run.
~Now let’s unveil card #2~
Should you stay or should you go? That seems to be the big question this week. Your feet are tingling and you are craving some kind of movement in your life but you don’t seem to know what you want in the first place. Illusions, delusions, as well as stuff from the past, may come to haunt. It can make your head spin but fear not: this sensation of disorientation is only temporary. But keep in mind that as long as you don’t have your chariot/ride (Raidho) under control, your horses (impulses) will bring you wherever they please and you might not like it. Ask yourself: who’s currently in charge in your life? If it’s not you, you got a problem! So before you decide to go anywhere, make sure that you’re the one holding the reins – that should protect you from wild rides…
~And finally, let’s unveil card #3~
A veil has been lifted from your situation, and you are full of hope, seeing things with new eyes. You have come to understand & realize some important things, and therefore a shift has occurred. What started as a simple awareness will have rippling effects in your everyday life. The wheel has turned, the Gods have their eyes on you & they are blowing favorable winds in your direction. Now that you have some clarity – knowing what you want and where you are heading to – have the courage to make things happen, and change your destiny for the better! As long as you keep your head on your shoulder, you should be fine.
