Odin, the patron of the runes and All-Father of the Gods is said to be accompanied by two wolves named Geri and Freki. Both their names mean greed. We cannot repress or extinguish our desires – however much we might want to. They are there fore a purpose. Odin teaches us to befriend all aspects of the self. What succour do they need? What are they trying to tell us? The more we ignore them the more they demand our attention. Before we move on to the next goal, the next desire, the next milestone on the journey we must take the time to properly complete what we started. You can learn more about balancing greed and the desire for growth in Middle Earth Readings this week.
Through this week the Moon is in its waning phase making it an excellent time for completion and release. The planetary movements speak of sacred exchange in many forms: what we give in the present so we may receive in the future, what promises we make in our souls, what we ask for from each other.
We will be exploring this with the following six runes:
- Fehu – flow, life force, desire;
- Othala – ancestors, inheritance, legacy;
- Mannaz – the sacred human, sovereign decisions, holding personal boundaries;
- Thurisaz – instinct, strong boundaries, assertive action;
- Eihwaz – stregth, endurance, eternal life;
- Sowilo – the compass, freedom, following your destiny
If you are new to Middle Earth Readings, we follow the lunar cycle, allowing us to dive deeper into each rune:
- On the week of the new Moon we will be setting intentions for working with a single rune as a spirit guide during the course of the month.
- On the week of the waxing Moon we will be opening to receiving the guidance and energies of that rune
- On the week of the Full Moon we will be exploring rune magics
- On the week of the waning Moon we will be working on releasing and completion ready for a new cycle to begin
We cover 6 runes in depth each session meaning we will cover all 24 during the course of each lunar cycle. Supporting every phase we have a beautiful discussion thread set up by the lovely Suzanne in the Hearthspace for you to share your intentions, receivings, magics and releasing.
