Here’s your weekly update on what’s going on with the planetary movements and what events are coming up in the Hearthspace.
Frigg’s Chariot (Roman equivalent Venus) in Ehwaz calls forth the reciprocity of partnership and the leader whose vision is for those around them. Ehwaz is the rune of the steed and the rider. It reminds us of the way in which contrasting forces can come together and achieve more than either party could be individually. Frigg counsels patience, curiosity and compassion. She also reminds us that partnership does not mean giving away your power to another: a true partner always raised you up too.
Sunna’s Chariot (the Sun) in Ehwaz brings union between the self and the other, the insider and the outsider, the light and the shadow. Ehwaz is the rune of the horse and the rider; it is the precursor to the modern English letter ‘E’. It supports us in finding the golden thread that unites us, the common ground in conflict and the compassion to appreciate differences (even if we don’t understand them). It reminds us that true partnership needs to be tended so that leadership can ebb and flow between the two parties. Dominance of one over the other will always result in imbalance and conflict in the longer term. Ehwaz can sometimes feel like fear: it is the unknown, the different, the enemy. Yet passing through that fear is often the route to the greatest rewards.
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 Gebo calls forth generosity of spirit, reciprocity of action and balance at a karmic level. Gebo is the rune of gifts, exchange and promises. This is an excellent month to check in on what you are creating and what legacy you to achieve by it for yourself and others. Remember that it is not always the big deeds that count: the small acts that make us smile are often the ones that change a life.
Middle Earth Readings
This week we move into the half month of Ehwaz, a rune of speed and connection. Ehwaz holds within it that strange dream-like state where boundaries blur, time runs both fast and slow and anything is possible. Find out more on Ehwaz here.
