But the fire is so delightful: Runes for December

Fehu Reversed, Kano reversed, Nauthiz

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.

Rune of the Day, April 28, Gotta get right back to where you started from

The biggest thing to day is that you are not going to get the answer. It may drive you a bit buggy to have to wait to find out how things are going to turn out, and the nagging feeling of being powerless to make things happen will be especially annoying. Just save all the ideas and plans that are bouncing around in your head, the exercise of trying to work it out will come in handy soon. But now it not the time for action, or a new direction. It is better to retreat and separate yourself from material possession and material interest for a day. There are still big changes going on in the background that are still completing so you will just have to stay in the dark for a little longer

Rune of the Day, March 17, So long and thanks for all the fish

Odin, Fehu reversed, Ansuz
Don’t worry about your frustrations today. They are simply a part of a much larger magic working through you. You are being given the answers, even though they may not make sense right now, so stop asking and start receiving.

Rune of the Day, March 12, If I only had the courage

The root of your hesitations right now lies in denial. It is time to be fully honest with yourself about who you are and what you really want. Honesty can become a habit just as easily as lying can. Each time it gets easier and it open the door for faith, trust, and hope. It can be hard at first to face the parts of yourself that you have been denying, but great healing can come from the acknowledgment and clearing away of these lies you tell yourself. You also may find hidden strengths that you were previously afraid to use.

Rune of the Day, March 1, I’m gonna wash that man right out of my hair

Fehu reversed, Mannaz reversed, Halgaz
It is time to do a bit of spring cleaning! Your attachments to your physical possessions are blocking your ability to know yourself. Everything is made of energy and contains energy, so look around at the clutter and the things you have been holding onto. When you keep items from soured relationships you are also keeping a pathway to the memories alive and that item carries its own memories too. So it is time to shake things up around the house. If you are not ready for a big overhaul; at least find one thing in each room that can be given away or thrown out. Sometimes just moving things around is enough to shift the energy. Right now things are a bit stagnant and it is the energy of your things that is bogging you down. If it doesn’t make you smile, why do you keep it around?
