Are you an introvert? An extrovert? An ambivert? Ever noticed how Odin, unlike most sovereign deities is given to wandering off? Time alone is one of his super-powers because he is an introvert: he gains energy and accesses his wisdom through time spent alone. Here at Magin Rose we don’t talk about Odin being in retrograde, we raise our eyes ruefully to skies and say ‘He’s on retreat’. We all need a retreat sometimes after all. Knowing how your personal energy cycles, what you need to do to re-charge and how your energy complements/ clashes with others is an essential for a spirit-inspired life.

This week in Middle Earth Readings I discuss some of the ways you can deepen your understanding of your own energetic nature. For some of us time alone is bliss whilst, for others, it is a bain. Either way, we all have to spend some of our time in energies that aren’t our preferred mode. Managing the balance is key.

Through this week the Moon is in its waxing phase making this an excellent time to open to receiving. I explore the management of our energy cycles with the following six runes:

  • Laguz – water, flow, cleansing and re-birthing;
  • Ansuz – communication, stability and freedom;
  • Gebo – exchange, balance, gifts;
  • Wunjo – ecstasy, time with others, time alone;
  • Algiz – connection, protection, wisdom;
  • Ehwaz – partnership, leadership, give and take.

Which rune is guiding you this week?

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.
