The Hagalaz full moon (that’s Scorpio for you western astrologers) offers a time of skin-shedding and change-making. Hagalaz is known as ‘the sickness of serpents’; the cold weather forces hibernation and a slowing of energy. In the northern hemisphere this can lead to changeable spiritual, physical and emotional weather as the forces of winter compete with the burgeoning forces of summer. This means you may feel tired one minute and energised the next. It also means new ideas and possibilities come bursting to the surface only to be swallowed whole by the sickness of our creator spirits: self-doubt. Lunar eclipses, Odin and Hela both in retreat mode (that’s Mercury and Pluto retrograde) all add to this sense of ‘one step forward two steps back’.
Reach within, pull out all the stops. Sleep when you need to, eat when you need to. What’s the one action you could do today to say ‘this day is mine’? Under the turbulence deeper access to conviction, certainty, purpose and power is slowly making its way to the surface.
Here are our helper runes for the week:
  • Dagaz – day, transformation, light and dark
  • Hagalaz – change, destruction, transformation
  • Kenaz – manifestation, creativity, honouring the physical
  • Isa – stillness, the pause before action, the form strong enough to contain the force
  • Nauthiz – instinct, necessity, the rebirth of the light in the darkness
  • Sowilo – self-awareness, flexibility, soul-compass

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.
