Here’s your weekly update on what’s going on with the planetary movements and what events are coming up in the Hearthspace.
Loki’s Chariot (Roman equivalent Saturn) in Algiz tests our resolve and our plans. Algiz is the rune of protection, guidance and knowledge from the divine. Loki, the Trickster God casts a shadow over even the most well-laid plans. When doubt creeps in it can be a healthy dose of pragmatism asking you to check you’ve turned the gas off. It can also be the shadow self calling you to resist change and let someone else take responsibility for your heroic journey. People might laugh at you – so what? You might fail? Well, if you don’t do it you can guarantee failure. The voice of Loki should never be dismissed but once you’ve checked the gas and made every preparation you can you’ve simply GOT TO JUMP.
Sunna’s Chariot (the Sun) in Teiwaz gives momentum to your intentions. Teiwaz is the rune of victory, justice and action. Combined with the energy of Sunna it becomes the spear in motion, flying through the air towards its target. Whatever you have set in motion, do not falter now. You have done everything you can to prepare for this moment, take flight, do not resist, trust yourself.
Manni’s Chariot (the Moon ) moves through one rune approximately every 24 hours. The potency of the Full Moon energy is like a high tide leaving tracks in the sand as it departs – it forms a current over the coming month. Manni’s Chariot in Raidho calls us to connect with the deeper rhythm of life. The word ‘lent’ stems from the Old English for ‘spring season’ and this Moon encourages us to harness our individual energies to the rebirthing earth. This is an excellent month to tune in to the sunrise and sunset, the budding growth all around us, the cycles of the tides and the Moon.
Middle Earth Readings
This week we move into the half month of Teiwaz, normally known as a rune of movement and action. Teiwaz can be used for aid in legal matters or to promote balance within the body. Find out more on Teiwaz here.
