Either way, it’s okay… runes for the week of Aug 13, ’17

Mannaz, Gebo, Inguz

This is definitely going to be a week a deep introspection for nearly all. The focus of our energy is going to be turned inward, to look back at the paths we have chosen and really see how and when we chose each turn that led us here. This can be a brutal revelation for some, with guilt and anger at some of the choices made. Guilt at realizing how we may have hurt others and the things we did to block ourselves will become abundantly clear the next few days.

Once the full weight of how it all really went down hits, take a deep breath and let it go. It was all part of the process of getting you here. There are some hard and uncomfortable lessons that we need to teach ourselves and some of us are a bit more stubborn than others and need things to be a bit more intense in order to learn. So find what it is you learned, thank yourself for the lesson, and forgive yourself for the extra BS you used to get you here. And then say to yourself “I know how to learn my lessons without causing extra pain and drama”

There will also be a huge desire to get away from others a bit this week, especially with all the old resentments coming up all over the place. Your unwillingness to work things out with others could lead to more hurt feelings, so fight your need to hide yourself away and spend time talking things out with your bestie.

Now that you can see the path behind you clearly- it is time to choose where you will go next. All of the choices ahead of you are yours to make. It can feel a bit scary for some to realize that this life is one we chose and that we get to choose how the rest of the story goes. Now it the best time to change your direction and put yourself on a path more in line with what you really want. Or just to make a few simple adjustments to refine your path. It is with a full understanding of your past that you can remake your future.

Rune of the Day, Aug 19, I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name

Kano, Wunjo, Ehwaz

The clouds seem to have parted and you are left with a new clarity. It is the beginning of a new phase in your life that leaves you feeling rather vulnerable and possibly also a little lost. The things that used to distract you no longer work and you are being forced to look at what parts of you are really important. It is time to start moving again. For a little while, serenity may be a bit elusive as sitting still is not as comfortable as it used to be. There is a need to move and you must follow that urge. Time to get out of town for the day and shift your energy through movement. Even going to the gym will help or taking a walk around the block. The movement will help unblock the last little bits of forgiveness that you need to address. It is time to forgive and move on, and moving your body out of its current local with make things a lot easier.

Rune of the Day, Sept 1, Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind

Kano, Thurisa reversed, Raido

Things have been opening up lately and you are being shown the possibilities and the choices that were previously hidden. For many it is simply the “how” of your goals. For others it is a fine tuning of the goal. You are on the path to become that person you set out to be, but with so many choices, it is best to weigh all of your options before you dive in. Small steps can be taken, but nothing drastic at this time. You are being shown a more organic and simpler way to achieve success. Have faith in the process and surrender yourself to your path. The more you follow your instincts, the less resistance you will encounter.

Rune of the Day, Dec 31, And I would walk 500 miles

Berkana reversed
When you hit a brick wall, it is time to retrace your steps. You could curse the wall all you want and blame the person that built it, and the person who told you to turn right instead of left, and your parents, and whoever else you can think of. But the reality is that your two feet took you there and now you have to stand and face this. So go back through your path and own every step and every decision that you made. Maybe you should not have listened to that person, or maybe you should have, either way, it is time to accept your choices as your own. Once you have accepted that the current situation is all of your own doing, you can move past it and know that you now have to power to not put yourself that situation again. But only if you own every step.

Rune of the day Nov 29, Anthony works in the grocery store……

Kano Reversed
All of a sudden, things don’t look quite right. It is because you are still trying to do things the way you always have and it is no longer working. It is time for you to evolve. When you get that yucky feeling take a moment to look at what you are doing. Are you doing it out of habit? Is it what you think is expected? Are you trying to force the situation? I am not trying to make you question every action; but it you always do what you did before you will keep getting the same results.
Also too look at who you feel is responsible for your current situation. Have you accepted full responsibility for where you are now? Or are you still blaming your upbringing or your boss or your significant other? Think back to the choices you made that led to this. If you can own up to walking the path that got you here, you can then see the way out, and start walking again.
