As always, Middle Earth Readings for the week is published at the bottom of the page after the live event. This week I take you through wyrd-weaving through alchemising opposites and flexing to your context. Fehu energy is still strong so pay attention to your physical and sensual needs and remember – wealth only grows when it is in movement.

Thor’s Chariot (Roman equivalent Jupiter) is now in Ehwaz, the rune of partnership. Thor represents pure strength, greatness personified, the one who stands alone in the defence of the many. It is said that, where the other Gods ride across the Bifrost bridge when the return home, Thor simply wades across the supposedly impassable river. Sometimes we do, indeed, need to wade the river alone. But when it truly, truly matters Thor emerges from Asgard with Loki at this side. He seeks another God who offers different skills for completion of the quest. The many legends of Thor also speak of a dynamic partnership between the Gods and the Jotun (giants). Enemies in one respect, their conflict also brings about the creation of vast magics, powerful weapons and epic tales of heroic endeavour. Prayer to Thor: Lay before me the quests that strengthen without breaking me; draw to my path the partners who enhance but do not control me; stand beside me as a reminder that Might is the courage to walk alone and the wisdom to work together.
Odin’s Chariot (Roman equivalent Mercury) in Fehu reminds us of the everyday magics that make existence wonderful. The gift of a single flower. A donation you can afford. A kind word or gesture to someone in need. Eyes connecting in recognition and understanding. Fehu is the rune of life force, wealth and gold. It reminds me of the tale of Freyja who enters the realm of Asgard as a hostage (albeit an honoured one) and ends up teaching Odin himself the precious treasures of her earth and seidr magics. In this tale Odin reveals the power of a heart that is always open to learning and Freyja reveals the power of one who gives generously regardless of their circumstances.
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.
