Here’s your weekly update on what planetary movements are coming up. This week is pretty quiet, Odin’s Chariot goes retrograde on the 31st and then moves into Othala later in the week. As always, Middle Earth Readings for the week is published at the bottom of the page after the live event.
Odin’s Chariot (Roman equivalent Mercury) in Othala speaks of the partnerships that make up our collective legacy. Othala is the rune of estate and the ancestors. Odin is well known for calling the greatest of warriors to his service but it is worth remembering that a true sovereign calls their people not to serve them, but to serve the vision they represent. Odin’s commitment is to continued life; he stands against the destructive waves of darkness and forgetting. From birth we are taught how to conform to the expected norms of the society we are raised in, we are shaped to ‘fit in’ – it’s a good survival strategy after all. Yet, collectively, we are called not to survive but to evolve. I believe that every person holds a piece of the next stage of our evolution, a bright vision which is theirs to tend. Eventually all of us will face a moment when we have to decide whether to obey the rules or serve the vision.
We are currently in the half month of Othala, a rune that speaks of both individual and collective inheritance. It is the land of the ancestors, the homestead and all inherited wealth. It is the traits passed down through our DNA, our language and our culture. Work with Othala is the first step towards understanding and making peace with our inheritance.
