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 Jan 9, 2015 ‘Cause every hand’s a winner And every hand’s a loser

Sowelu, Perth, Thurisa & Gebo

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.

Rune of the Day, Sept 19, I love it when a plan comes together

Gebo, Laguz, Inguz

New partnerships are forming. Some are with new people, some with people who you have known, but are seeing completely differently. We grow so slowly and privately that sometimes others don’t notice the evolution for a while, you just go through a weird period of not communicating as well for a bit. But we all seemed to have leveled off just enough to lift up are heads and check in with each other. This also may mean that you are noticing that some old partnerships are not going was well as they used to. just go with the flow and allow yourself to be pleasantly surprised by the wealth of creative energy that is available today. It is a great day to start a new project or simply daydream and brainstorm about what is now possible.

Rune of the Day, Aug 31, Blunt the knives bend the forks! Smash the bottles and burn the corks!

Eihwaz, Gebo, Inguz

It is time again to take a survey of your closest relationships. Do you feel refreshed and energized when you part? If you do, then you are being all of yourself when you are with that person. If you feel tired or annoyed, or you are letting the call go to voicemail, then there is something to work on. You may need to take a step back for a while from some people, especially those going through addictions that you do not feel you can handle. You can always reconnect, but right now your relationship with your higher self is a bigger priority. The stronger your connection to your higher self and the more faith you have that the universe will give you all the energy you need, the more you can be around people who are of a lower vibration. The stronger your person connection the less they will bring you down. Start with yourself, and then you can go out and help the people that you care about. Yes, we all need someone to see us through the dark times, but today you need to focus your energy inward to recharge before you go out and share your love.

Rune of the Day, Aug 25, Well, you don’t know what we can find

Algiz, Berkana reversed, Gebo

It is really easy to feel defensive right now. Many of us are feeling raw and exposed because we are leaving our comfort zones. If you give in to the need to protect yourself you will rebuild the walls that have just come down and you will end up back where you were a few months ago. If you are in touch with yourself, your true desires, and your connection to god you do not need protection as no one will be able to shake you. It is time to trust yourself and your ability to make the right decisions from here on out; and then extend that trust to others. By being true to yourself you will draw to you those who are doing the same.

Rune of the Day, July 2, Treat me like you did the night before

Gebo, Othila reversed, Isa

Take the time to stand still today and let the dust settle. A new partnership is forming, it may be a new person in your life, but for many of us it is a renewed partnership with our true selves. Your vision for the future is a bit more clear and now you have the people you need around you to help take you to the next level. Don’t be trapped into thinking that things are going to be like they were before. This is a new relationship and a new beginning, the old ways of relating and communication are not going to work the way they did before.

Rune of Day, April 18, Wake up – sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed.

Hagalz, Ansuz reversed, Gebo

Things are not going to go according to plan today. All of the miscommunications from the past are going to come to a head and it is time to sort them out. It is going to feel a bit like you are spinning your wheels and not getting anywhere, but it is simply a chance to clean things up and get yourself pointed in the right direction. So drop all of your pretenses and have an honest talk with the people involved. With everything so out of place you have the opportunity to put things exactly where you want them.

Rune of the Day, March 21, In your eyes

Ansuz reversed, Hagalz, Gebo
The disconnect from the universe you are currently experiencing can be healed by spending time with new friends and allies. Sometimes we need to see the world through someone else’s eyes to gain a clear view of how the world works. This new perspective will help you grow and deal with the shakeups and disruptions that are happening right now.

Rune of the Day, March 4, Everybody knows, a little place like Kokomo

Gebo, Othlia, Mannaz reversed
There are people in your life right now that are not helping you move forward. It may be someone you have known for years that only seems to want to complain, or a highly opinionated family member or coworker. It may be difficult to get the amount of distance that you need to see yourself clearly, but space is defiantly what is needed right now. How can you see yourself clearly when you are surrounded by other ideas of who you are? Sometimes it is good to see yourself as other do, but right now the most important vantage point is your own. It may be time to take a small vacation, to get away from others’ influences so you can focus only on yourself for a short time. Once you have cleared out your own space and are in tune with yourself, you can let other people back into your space without them weighing you down.

Rune of the Day, Feb 26, Looking for love in old familiar faces

Gebo, Berkana reversed, Jera
A true partnership can be a challenge to find for some. If you are looking for someone to be your ‘other half’, you will be sorely disappointed. No one will ever complete you, that is your job. Yes, people can help you get there, but you need to start the process on your own. I am not saying that you have to be perfect in order to find someone, just that the distinction needs to be made between partners that help you grow and partners that keep you comfortable. Consider how much a fixer upper you want to be with, how much work do you want to put into helping another person? That is the distance from finished that you should be, a true partnership involves growing together. So start your growth now. Write down a plan of who you want to be and what you want your life to look like a year from now. If you know where you are going, it is a lot easier to find someone to help you on your journey who can learn and grow with you.
