Here’s your weekly update on what’s going on with the planetary movements and what events are coming up in the Hearthspace. 

Our ability to see the divine light of humanity reflected in others and to respond with loving support is what sets our own divine light blazing. Odin’s Chariot (Roman equivalent Mercury) in Algiz brings blessing and wisdom.  Algiz is the rune of protection, divine guidance and connection between the Earth and Heavens.  Odin presents himself in two guises.  He is the All-Father providing blessing to those who already honour him.  He is also the traveller, going out amongst humanity as the elder, the needy, the entertainer, the joker, the vulnerable.   This period is a return into Algiz for Odin retrograde; as such support offered can sometimes feel unsolicited, given in judgement/ conditionally, or simply not enough.  Remember to not only ask for what you need in your gratitudes but also from your support network.  Helping others is often the way we best help ourselves.   

Frigg’s Chariot (Roman equivalent Venus) in Algiz summons the protective spirit of the swan maiden, the Valkyrie, the falcon Queen.  Frigg is known for keeping her own counsel and preserving her silence.  She reminds us that the desire to share our dreams at their earliest stage of development is not always a wise course of action – for it is often those who love us as we are in the now who falter at the thought that we may change.  Let the protectors of your birthing dream be first and foremost yourself, your guides and your gods (whatever form they take for you).  The time for sharing, collaboration, pruning and fruition will come – everything in its season.
