Now that you have done your internal work, it is time to look up and reconcile the impact that you have had on those around you, both for good or ill. There is a reckoning happening, and it is best to dive in and see how deep it goes.
Resentments will come to a head this month. Things that were simply an annoyance will now become bigger until you break from those that are not longer serving you. It is time to bury the hatchet and get down to the core of your interpersonal choices and habits. You have a great opportunity to decide how you want to be in relation to others going forward. We have been told that we need others to complete us, instead of recognizing that we are all capable of being complete, that you already are whole and perfect. Also too, it is time to learn how to fight for yourself inside your relationships. Do you always decide in ways that make other’s happy to the detriment of your own happiness? Do you like who you are in relation to others? Most of all- do you forgive yourself as easily as you forgive others?
Emotions may be high this month so be judicious with your communications. It may not be best to reveal everything that you are feeling as some rather dark emotions will working their way out. Not everything you feel about someone needs to be stated to that person. One good way to rid yourself of these resentments is to write them all out in a letter and set it on fire. The same should be done with any guilt that you are still carrying. Letting go of old guilt, especially if someone else keeps bringing it up, will be the best way to have a great start to the year.

Any thoughts or feelings of scarcity could easily be amplified over the next month. This will be a time of taking in inventory, both of physical possessions and of beliefs. It is time to start being honest with yourself about why you belief what you believe. “Because I always have” or “That’s just what I was taught” isn’t going to work anymore. It may not be easy to do so much internal work during the season that requires the most pleasantries of the year, but it’s going to happen one way or another. So you may as well excuse yourself from the less essential activities, stay in when you aren’t 100% excited about going out, and just remember to give yourself the time as space you need this month.
The biggest person you will be up against is yourself. Emotional reactions may be a bit exaggerated as little things trigger deeper emotions and help draw out things you haven’t thought about in a long long time. It’s not the current situation, but one that had a similar feel. So allow the feelings to happen, and then trace the emotion back to the issue that is ready to be resolved.
This is not a time to be extravagant or prove anything to those around you. It’s best to conserve both physical resources and your energy. The simpler the holiday season, the easier it will be to navigate this time around. There will be better times to go overboard.

Well, best be ready to stop taking things personally. September is going to keep you triggered and on your toes. It’s going to feel like you are on the defensive and that everyone has a problem with the things you are doing. Just remember – they are probably just as triggered as you are, at least for now.
It’s going to be really hard to put yourself in other peoples’ shoes – the things that are going on in your head feel like they take up all of your bandwidth. So for those of you who habitually put everyone else first this is going to be a bumpy ride. This month is about clearing out all of your shit, so you can help others.
It’s time to start something new. Doesn’t matter if you are gong to finish it, or if if takes twists and turn and never resembles what you first conceived – it’s the starting of new things and moving new energy in your life that matters now. So- head down, keep to yourself, and start creating.
Rune for June 2018, Ehwas, Wunjo, Mannaz
Things are going to be moving quickly this month and to compound matters we all may get a bit wiggly. If your are starting the month strong, full of ideas, and ready to run, then its going to be a lot of fun. There is work to be done, but it can happen. For you the biggest challenge may be in slowing down and actually enjoying the happy chaos and taking the time to check in with others.
For those no in alignment with the chaotic happiness of this month , it could feel like you are being run over and that your feelings aren’t important. It’s going to seem to that everyone else has their heads in the clouds and you may feel excluded. Keep heart, they will come to their senses.
For everyone- stay in touch with how you really feel, not how you are supposed to, or what you think people expect from you. Whether in the happy chaos or watching it from a safe distance the answer to having a great June is to be honest with yourself about who you are being and what you really want right now.

While it is wonderful that many of us can take a well deserved sigh of relief as things have settled down after the last full moon, this is just the beginning. The decisions you make and the plans you lay this month will carry you through the next year. So take some time to decide which was you want to go, and more importantly who do you want to be? Which face are you going to show the world?
It may feel like there are too many options this month, which can be a happy problem that feels like a burden. Remember to take your time deciding and weigh all of your options. The right choice will come easily if you give yourself the space and reflection needed.
The energy of this month is slow but steady, things are starting to move so be patient, especially with your body. Make sure to check in and see how things are gong physically – extra massages, visits to healthcare professionals, just to check in are recommended. Also be aware of if you are being too on guard and suspicious of other’s motivations.
Runes of the Month for March 2018
Dagaz, Ansuz, Burkana
Well! The good news is that February is coming to an end and we can all relax. It has been a bumpy ride and now that we are raw and open and have a much clearer grasp of personal inventory, it is time to rebuild.
The tone for the month is transformation, so get ready to do a lot of work! If you are unwilling to change this month could be a bit rough as change is the most important aspect of the next few weeks and why we spent the last few finding out all the things that weren’t working. So time to start new projects, revamp the ones that didn’t take off, make new friends. It’s time to expand and grow.
With all this radical growth and unpredictable energy it may be hard at times to really focus in on what’s being said around you- so make time every day to relax and meditate, cultivate your active listening skills, because there may be things you are overlooking in your excitement. Also too, ay attention to any lingering feelings of remorse or regret that come up this month- it’s time to let it go, otherwise these feelings could cause unnecessary complications.
This is a great time to pick up a new skill, especially one that makes you nervous. The energy for new growth will abound and it will be easier to keep the knowledge in and apply it quickly. So find a passion and dig in.
Runes for the Month of February
Perth, Thurisa, Uruz reversed
This month is going to be all about the love and new beginnings. And like the original meaning of St. Valentine’s day, it’s not just about romantic love. How open are you to being loved by your BFF? Or your coworkers? Do you only love your family out of obligation or have you taken the time to see who they are as humans and love them for who they are? Are you still finding things in your partner to love?
Do you make your decisions based on love or on fear? How do react to the fear fo those around you, do you sink into it and feed it your own fears, or do you take a deep breath and listen to their fears from a place of love.
The biggest challenge this month will be staying in touch with your wisdom. There are things that you know to be true so hold tight to them as these beliefs will be challenged. People will try to tell you that the sky is orange and 2+2=5. But hold tight to your truth and it will see you through.
Take time each day to release any bitterness you are feeling. The more regrets, resentments, and guilt you release this month the easier things will go for you the rest of the year.
The way to truly know and expiernce love is to let go of all things that are not in line with seeing the devine spark in everyone you meet. If you accept the fear of others it will only weigh you down. It is safe to see this fear and acknowledge it, but it is possible to do so without buying into it. And sometimes, for some people, just having their fears heard without judgement, from a place of love, is enough to help them grow out of the fear and possibly find inside themselves the thing that they are really afraid of.

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.

Oh, what a relief from last week! So you made it. Not it is time to walk away from the bullshit. There will be a need release a bit of grief, the beginning of the week will be about purging at the same time you will be more open and everything will be a bit sensitive this week. Monday may be a good day to watch a sad movie and curl up with some popcorn, defiantly not a good day to party. Wednesday on will be a bit better for socializing. Stay focused on the now. Keep checking in with how you feel now, and what the very next step is. There is a lot of energy swirling around this week as you are still rebuilding and the extra emotional bandwidth is going to take a bit of getting used to. Stay focused on the things that you rock out at – no need to challenge yourself at this point. It’s okay to go for the easy victories are you are just finding your footing and opening yourself up to some amazing surprises down the road.

Give yourself a lot of space today. Most people’s energy will be rather pulled in as we each focus on our own wholeness. For some this will be a new and foreign feeling, but the universe is sending us each a little sample so you can know and grow it.
It can sometimes be easier to have compassion for others than for ourselves. So for today begin to explore what it feels like to have love and compassion for yourself. How much more energy will you have when you stop beating yourself up about not being perfect. When in fact you already are perfect, it is just very difficult for many of us to see it, and sometimes even more difficult to accept, but you can get here. It starts by taking a deep breath and allowing yourself to just be without judging or trying to improve anything.
Just remember that anyone new that you bring into your life today will be at comparable level of compassion and self-love as you.
