October 31, 2010 – Jera

Standard


Jera

Jera is the letter J

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

Summer is a joy to men, when God, the holy King of Heaven,
suffers the earth to bring forth shining fruitsfor rich and poor alike.

It seems to me that Jera is a strong recurring rune for the past couple of months, especially when it comes to the festivals of the year, and their turning.

October 31 – November 6, 2010 – Hagalaz

Standard

Hagalaz

Hagalaz is the letter H

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

Hail is the whitest of grain;
it is whirled from the vault of heavenand is tossed about by gusts of windand then it melts into water

Hagalaz signfies hail, the storm, and the forces of destruction. It indicates that this week will be filled with changes, not all pleasant, and the only response one can do is to move with them and withstand them.

October 30, 2010 – Ear

Standard


Ear

Ear is the dipthong “ea”

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

The grave is horrible to every knight,
when the corpse quickly begins to cooland is laid in the bosom of the dark earth.Prosperity declines, happiness passes awayand covenants are broken.

Ear is the grave, death, and decay. It is a rune that indicates that something has reached it end, and must now be put to rest. The problem I am having is figuring out what. What has reached it’s end, what is complete and can go no further, It could be a mutltitude of things, or a single thing that is very important. It occurred to me as sign of this time of the year, the dark season in the Northern Hemisphere, when the underworld and the lands of the dead come close and claim what is theirs. But it could also be a sign that other things have reached their terminus, and the question is for me, what is it?

October 29, 2010 – Laguz

Standard

Laguz reversed

Laguz is the letter L

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

The ocean seems interminable to men,
if they venture on the rolling barkand the waves of the sea terrify themand the courser of the deep heed not its bridle
LAguz reversed embodies the terrify waves, the rough currents, the rip tides that come through creating conflict, struggle, and chaos. The flow of events continues, but they are strong currents that feel as though they might sweep you away. Just to keep your head above the surface is a mighty struggle

October 28, 2010 – Shtan

Standard


Shtan

Shtan is the “sh” sound

There is no rune poem for Shtan. It is a Northumbrian Rune.

Shtan, the stone, signifies experiences dealing with the physical, the strong, solid and permanent. In some ways, this might be the foundation that you are building upon, giving stability as it settles deep down on a firm bedrock of experience. With time and effort the foundation can help build to something majestic and wonderful, but now is the time to establish that foundation.

On the other hand, it might be the obstacle that cannot be overcome head on. All the effort yields only small results. Also with time, the obstacle might be over come, but at the end, many other things are lost, and it is very perilous and consuming of your resources.

October 27, 2010 – Mannaz reversed

Standard


Mannaz reversed

Mannaz is the letter M

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

The joyous man is dear to his kinsmen;
yet every man is doomed to fail his fellow,since the Lord by his decree will commit the vile carrion to the earth

Mannaz reversed indicates a day of mental and spiritual laxity. It is okay to take a break sometimes, to allow yourself to ride on the laurels of your effort, and just take it easy. Sometimes choices made early make this a necessity, as sleep, sustenance or the demands of physical life just need to be met before the work of magic and spirit can be met.

October 26, 2010 – Jera

Standard


Jera

Jera is the letter J

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

Summer is a joy to men, when God, the holy King of Heaven,
suffers the earth to bring forth shining fruitsfor rich and poor alike.

Jera indicates that today is about patience. The kind of patience one has when waiting for a plant to grow, mature and produce fruit. Things are not moving quickly, and instead need to be tended to and nurtured along. Expect to need to reach out, make contact and be the instigator for anything to happen.

October 25, 2010 – Os reversed

Standard


Os reversed

Os is the vowel “o”

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

The mouth is the source of all language,
a pillar of wisdom and a comfort to wise men,a blessing and a joy to every knight
Os reversed indicates a break down in communication. Expect messages to come late, or garbled. You might find your own skills are interrupted, emails mistyped and lost, and your text messages just can’t seem to get through in a timely manner

October 24, 2010 – Teiwaz

Standard


Teiwaz

Teiwaz is the letter T

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

Tiewaz is a guiding star; well does it keep faith with princes;
it is ever on its course over the mists of night and never fails

This has not happened to me before, where the rune of the day and week are the same on the same day that I cast them. The full meaning of that I am not sure, but it is doubly relevant today to be perceptive, honest and clear with yourself and your limitations.

October 24 – 30 – Teiwaz

Standard


Teiwaz

Teiwaz is the letter T

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

Tiewaz is a guiding star; well does it keep faith with princes;
it is ever on its course over the mists of night and never fails

Tiewaz for the rune of the week indicates a week where wisdom, guidance, integrity judgement and discernment play key roles. Let cooler mind prevail, and put aside anxiety and fear, embracing what you know and sense about the situations that arise, and knowing when to take action, and when to follow through.
