This week’s new moon opens Þrimilcemōnaþ, a time of abundance when the cattle could be milked 3 times each day. Perhaps this is why the lore surrounding faery, elves and dwarves who either preserve the milk, turn it or spill it abounds. Now is a good time to make offerings to hearth and land spirits, and yes, they like milk (honey, mead, wine, cakes and breads are also welcome). How did our ancestors develop the ability to preserve foods? To know which plants were edible and which not? To keep on consuming milk until, across generations, lactose tolerance increased? Humans are characterised by their willingness to take risks; we are insatiably curious which drives our insatiable inventiveness.
In Middle Earth Readings this week I share two stories of deities known for taking risks. If you need a little courage they are there to help. What are the rewards available to you this month when you step out of your comfort zone, try something new, dig in to something you’ve been putting off and dare to be bold?
This New Moon in Mannaz offers its blessings to intentions that see us stepping up and stepping out. Find your courageous magic. Take a chance. Make life a place of play.
In Middle Earth Readings this week we explore intention setting with the following runes:
  • Mannaz – sovereign choice, confidence
  • Fehu – life force, gold, plenty
  • Berkano – spring, new beginnings, the gifts of the earth
  • Inguz – gestation, stored energy
  • Uruz – strength, will power, natural law
  • Teiwaz – spear, guiding star, inner truth
Catch up with the recording to set powerful intentions for your month to come.

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.
