“Time spent in meditation and contemplation will be rewarded. Opportunities seized will bear fruit. Openness to the unexpected will lead to a greater depth in your understanding of self and purpose in the world. ” Read on for more wisdom from Sunna’s Chariot in Dagaz, and the other planetary movements taking place this week.
As always, Middle Earth Readings for the week is published at the bottom of the page after the live event.
Sunna’s Chariot (the Sun) is now in Dagaz the rune of the day, enlightenment, change and transformation. Dagaz is the union of opposites drawing all back to centre and enabling a new cycle of initiation and evolution to occur. Sunna’s Chariot is the bringer of Day, making this a particularly powerful combination. Time spent in meditation and contemplation will be rewarded. Opportunities seized will bear fruit. Openness to the unexpected will lead to a greater depth in your understanding of self and purpose in the world. One of the gifts of Dagaz is the way in which it collapses time so we can see the interconnectedness of all things. Imagine the moment a butterfly takes flight; this is the Dagaz moment and through its wisdom the butterfly understands that every moment, each part of the struggle, was a part of the creation of its ability to soar.
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 Jera (the rune of the year, harvest and success) brings a beautiful, grounded and expansive energy for the month ahead. Imagine golden cornfields, the scent of honey-suckle and balmy days. This Moon brings great energy to magical workings. Take projects through to fruition, savour the moment, bask in the gifts of life.
The Anglo Saxon’s called this month’s moon the Flower Moon.
Frigg’s Chariot (Roman equivalent Venus) in Inguz speaks of sacrifice, initiation and responsibility. Inguz is the rune of the seed, potential stored, gestation and sacrifice. All must play their part in manifesting a future fit for the generations to come. Frigg reminds us that we are all Elders in the human tribe. Very few cultures maintain the rites of passage that help us determine when we step from being an initiate (awaiting wisdom) to the initiator (conferring wisdom). Frigg suggests that we view ourselves as having two faces: one looking ahead for the wisdom we are seeking and one looking behind to help others do the same. When asking the question ‘What can be done about all this?’ There is only ever one answer that really matters ‘Whatever I am able to.’
We are currently in the half month of Dagaz, the rune of the day. The darkness of ignorance, terror, unknowing and despair gives way to enlightenment, comfort and hope. Dagaz is not the darkness, but without the darkness we can never come to know it.
