Here’s your weekly update on what planetary movements are coming up. 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) is now in in Wunjo the rune of ecstasy, belonging and joy. Too often in this world we are programmed either to give ourselves up entirely to the wishes of others or compete with them whatever the costs. If winning costs all that you are, surely the victory is hollow? Odin’s Chariot in Wunjo asks you to change the rules of the game. Replenished and restored you will bring so much more to your people, your passions and your purpose.
Manni’s Chariot (the Moon) moves through one rune approximately every 24 hours. The edge of the new Moon is as a scythe cutting through what has come before and reaching towards desire, hope and purpose. It forms a moment for release, clarity and intention setting. Manni’s Chariot in Hagalaz brings a wave of necessary change. You can choose to lead the change, embrace it or resist it. None of these options are wrong but each require their own forms of preparation. How ready are you to be a leader? To stand up for what you believe in, even in the face of nay-sayers and cynics? How open are you to moving with change, releasing old habits and comforts in the hope of something new? How prepared are you to dig your heals in, hunker down and ride out the storm around you? This new moon offers great possibilities to those who are ready to take responsibility for their choices.
Thor’s Chariot in Sowilo channels the brilliant life force of the Sun into the fertile land both literally and metaphorically. Thor’s Hammer, Mjolnir, blesses the Earth, ensuring good harvest and abundance. New ideas, new connections and new endeavours will be particularly fruitful at this time; as will projects deferred, delayed or re-designed to better meet the needs of a new age. The bright solar power of Sowilo is channelled through the structured, formative Hammer enabling us to create and manifest. Seize the moment to realise your most potent dreams. Those of you resonate with strong fire runes such as Thurisaz and Dagaz may want to watch that the power of Mjolnir doesn’t radiate out into its more destructive form – tempers can fray when the stakes are high.
We are currently in the half month of Hagalaz, a rune that represents those things that are outside our control. The hail storm of Hagalaz clears away stagnation, weakness and disease, and once it is passed the way is cleared and strong new growth can manifest.
