Our theme for the month: Tradition and Transformation
Vision and Vulnerability
This week’s new moon opens Aerra Litha (‘before Litha’), a time of anticpation as we head towards the solstice. Intention setting is an important aspect of northern tradition spirituality found in rites like the symbel and essential to luck-building. When we weave our intentions with the flow of the lunar month we combine the energies of solar focus with lunar flexibility.
Have you ever noticed how, as soon as you have a new idea or vision for the future, right on its heals comes a huge dose of self-doubt and vulnerability? This week work with your runes to help you overcome the things that are holding you back from stepping fully, joyfully and magnificently into your vision for the future. On my own vision questing journey this weekend I found that some of the doubt holding me back wasn’t even mine. It was old and tribal: a cultural legacy of shame and inherited self mis-trust that needs to become my new playground for healing and transformation.
In Middle Earth Readings this week I explored working with the following six runes to help connect with vision and move through vulnerability:
- Inguz – renewal, rebirth;
- Ansuz – learning, evolving, communicating;
- Teiwaz – the spiritual warrior;
- Uruz – to be both wounded and whole;
- Jera – the balance of past and future, masculine and feminine;
- Thurisaz – the safe expression of emotion and passion
Catch up with the recording to set powerful intentions for your month to come.
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.

Join me for the Witches Congress
A magical, practical and thoughtful event.
Networking & Sharing
I would so love for you to join me at this incredible event. I am very grateful to Carolin Kamenz, founder of Hexekongress for my lovely introduction below:
It’s my special pleasure to announce the incredible Maggie Cunningham, aka Magin Rose, for the Witches’ Congress.
Maggie is a keeper of stories for the people of the northern lands and for all those who, like herself, are searching for themselves.
Maggie works with men and women from the western world who are successfully running holistic businesses and are looking for an even more authentic, connected path for themselves. Maggie helps us remember our heart stories and bring them back to life.
My personal journey with her started exactly one year ago. At the 1st Witches’ Congress, her voice and the way she pronounced runes initiated me into the mysteries of Norse mythology. I didn’t see it coming. Up to that time I was totally committed to the Greek pantheon.
Spontaneously I decided to spend a year with her and the runes. A new world opened up. It’s unbelievable how much in-depth knowledge and by that I mean – academically as well as practically embodied in-depth – she brings with her.
For me it is the international top address if you want to delve into Norse mythology far from the surface.
At the witches’ congress, she will accompany us on the hero’s path and introduce us to the art of runic astrology. Her talk, “Walking the Hero’s Path: Working with Your Birth Runes,” gives you an insight into how your birth runes can be used as tools for healing and magic.
I would only book the ticket for that alone. Runic astrology is still completely unknown in German-speaking countries. You won’t find a more terrific teacher than Maggie. Anyone who has known me for a long time knows that I do not deal with such statements in an inflationary manner.
Are you ready to embark on this magical journey and discover the secrets of your birth runes?
Be there when the Witches’ Congress is enriched by a topic that is only now on everyone’s lips – it’s an experience that you shouldn’t miss!
