“Stand in your fullness and be received by the universe”. This week’s powerful full moon is augmented by visionary power, a strong pull towards integrity and a reminder that it not always what we say, but what we do, that changes the world. Read more about the planetary movements and their meanings below. You can join me for Middle Earth Readings to take a deeper dive into personal and collective destiny every Monday at 11am (London time); the live is published below within a few hours of the event.
Frigg’s Chariot (Roman equivalent Venus) in Dagaz speaks of the seership skills of the Goddess Frigg. She is known for her second sight and the great tragedy of her life is foretelling the death of her
son but not being able to avert it. All great teachers instruct through doing more than telling. Their enthusiasm, passion, commitment and integrity are just as powerful as their knowledge. Frigg’s Chariot asks you to consider how you share your gifts and knowledge with the world. What is your intention in doing so? Do you know when to support and when to challenge? Choose wisely when you instruct and when you hold back; the journey is not always yours to take.
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 Eihwaz (the rune of the yew tree, defensive strength and eternal life) brings an invitation to pause and reflect. Let yourself take root. Let yourself stand tall. Let yourself feel the might of the earth beneath your feet and the nearness of the stars when you open to greet them. This Moon brings a protective energy to your intentions and endeavours in the month ahead. Stand in your fullness and be received by the universe; the web of wyrd will open to support you.
The Anglo Saxon’s called this month’s moon the Grain Moon.
Chariot (the Sun) is now in Uruz the rune of the mighty aurochs, strength and
formation. Uruz contains within it the wild spirit of nature and the peace of
the vast earth. It calls us into
integrity and opens our hearts to communion with the vast expanses of the
soul. When we are struggling it offers
both healing energy and the stamina to push through. Find its power in the bones of the earth, the
wild blue of the open sky and the beat of the hooves of herd animals on the
great plains of the earth. Honour it
through keeping the secret promises of your heart and by tending to the
partnership with the earth that each of us enters into as a creature of this
Pride come before a fall, they are too big for their boots, who do they think they are? I don’t know about you but where I come from boasting about your achievements is considered, at best, impolite and, at worst, likely to cause immediate bad luck and failure. Odin’s Chariot (Roman equivalent Mercury) in Uruz asks us the very simple question: why is it not okay to claim our power? Does it somehow diminish others? Does being good at what I do, passionate about my cause or elated in my triumph make me undeserving? Odin encourages us to step out of the shadow of the taboos about owning our own power. Those who stand shoulder to shoulder with us and are at peace with their own power will do nothing but feel absolutely fantastic when we make peace with ours. I raise my cup to you in the knowledge that your triumph can never diminish mine but has the power to inspire more greatness in others then they have yet dreamt.
We are currently in the half month of Fehu, a rune representing life force and wealth. Its negative aspects are those of possessiveness, jealousy and hoarding. When channelling the energy of Fehu remember the principle of flow and giving. Any form of avarice will corrupt its energy.
