Humans have always read their fate by the stars.  Using runic astrology you can discover which of the 24 runes in the Elder Futhark are your personal guides.  Their purpose is not to predict your fate but to help you find your most purposeful, pleasurable and powerful path through life.   If you listen, they will speak.    Amidst all the noise their song (runemal or rune-speech)  calls you home to yourself and their power strengthens you to make your biggest and most fulfilling contribution in this lifetime.  

Your Sun Rune protects and empowers your unique energetic signature. It clears the influence of others in your life and brings you back to the core of who you are. 

If you are new to the runes you will want to know that each is a unique sound with a unique symbol. Every rune has poems and meanings attached to it but, most importantly, each has its own energy. This is why Mariana said about the ‘Awakening’ module which forms the core of each Magin Rose Sun rune package:

 ‘the power song is where I go first. Through the sound vibration I gather all the messages and downloads. When I listen to the description, I notice I already know most of the information just from listening to the power songs prior.’

The Historical bit

Sadly we have no complete astrological system handed down from our northern European ancestors. We have calendars, archeological finds such as the Trundholm Sun Chariot and the voices of the runes themselves which are full of references to time and space. The partially reconstructed, partially re-imagined system I use is based on the work of Nigel Pennick from his book Starcraft and Time-keeping in the Northern Tradition. I have been working with this system for more than 15 years now. 

The mythic bit

Northern tradition myths and legends abound with tales of fated heroes and wyrd-weavers. In the Poetic Edda the hero Helgi’s birth is heralded by the arrival of the Nornir (fates).

Birth runes quote from The Poetic Edda - Helgi - fate thread span they to overspread the world - they gathered together the gold threads and in Moons Hall they held them fast

This passage speaks of the Nornir stretching golden threads across the land and fixing them in place across the night sky. Helgi’s name means ‘success’ or ‘dedicated to the Gods’. His soul is literally woven into our world by the fates. To me, this act of weaving across the night sky speaks clearly of a reading of the stars undertaken and ‘fixed’ for his lifetime.  

The technical bit

Runic astrology works on the basis that the ‘ecliptic’ (the perceived course of the Sun and the planets) is divided into 24 equal parts; each devoted to a single rune. As the Sun and planets move around the eclipic their unique vibrations combine with the song of the rune in which they are located – a unique song is created for every moment. Your Sun rune is created by the vibration of the Sun within the sphere of your Sun rune at the moment of your birth.

What is your Sun Rune?

The Sun spends about 2 weeks each year in each rune; these phases are known as the ‘half-months’. They vary by a few days each year so the dates given below are broad indicators. If your birthday falls within 2-3 days of the beginning or end of a rune’s ‘half-month’ I offer the ‘My Sun Rune’ package which includes an exact calculation of your Sun Rune alongside your Awakening package. If you are mathematically minded I give more information about the calculations in the ‘self-navigation’ section.

Connect with the power of your Sun rune through story, power song, meditation and historical information in your Sun Rune Awakening package.   Each Sun Rune package contains a PDF about your Sun rune plus the rune’s module from my Awakening programme to initiate, deepen and support your connection. 

The dates for each rune are generic, they change slightly each year so if your birthday is near the beginning or end of the Sun rune dates  please purchase My Sun Rune package; we will then calculate your sun rune based on your birth time, date and location and send you the correct package.
