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 that ‘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 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).
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
You can learn more about all aspects of runic astrology in the ‘self-navigation for spirited heroes‘ section. For now it is enough to know that 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.

Middle-enclosure. Home of Man. Thor-protected, serpent-belted. Green jewel held between sky and sea. Revolving between ice and fire. Bridge-between the worlds. Many-layered. Ancient home of elves and dwarves. Gates long closed wait to be opened.
Light-elf home. Ljósálfheimr. Abode of elves and home of light. Its people are said to be fairer to look upon than the Sun. Gifted to the earth God Freyr. Iridescent, fleeting, bejeweled, enchanted and intoxicating. Defying time, immune to logic, tricking death itself into a peaceful slumber.
Urd's Well - The Well of Wyrd
rd’s Well - first of the great wells. Home of the Nornir, the 3 and the many. Both above and below. Cradled in the roots of the tree to offer healing; nestled on the edges of Asgard to offer wisdom. Not a world, but a way in: to journey, to explore, to fare forth and to know what is known is but the beginning...
Vanir-home. Power of earth. Seat of wisdom. Fertile, fecund, fruitful. Treasure-home, nature’s glory. Magic woven into land and tree, rock and stone, air and water. Unafraid to bleed, unafraid to love, unafraid to die. Fountain of gold, fountain of life, cycle of rebirth.
Fire-home. Red-hot, white-rage, gold-love. Endless dance. Destruction and creation. Sparks fly from the heart of fire into the inky black womb of Ginnungagap. Stars are born here to light the worlds. Beginning and ending. Surtr holds his sword high waiting to strike.
Mist home, ice-realm. Endless expanse. Sleep blooming as tendrils of frost painting a landscape wrapped in mist. Stilling the heart-beat of time itself. Hrim-thursar, the ice giants, keep a watchful vigil over the silence, whispering to one another through the cracks.
Giant home. Built after the fall of the ancient ones. Land woven of valleys and mountains. Cliff-edge, thunder-home, swathed in forest, clad in snow. Dwelling place of shape-shifters, wisdom-keepers, giants, trolls and land-wights. Untamed wilderness on the eternal edge.
Dark elves and dwarves dwell in this place of secrets. Twilight, starlight, moonlight dimming. Beneath the endless, darkening forests of the swart-alfar lies Nidavellir the cavernous hall of the dvergar: wrought of treasures so fine, so bright that the Sun herself has no need to light the way.
Hela’s home. Dwelling-of the dead. Peaceful sanctuary of rest. In-gathering, soul-healing, way-finding. Protected by high walls and fierce guardians. Edged by eyes, found at tree’s root. Come to find peace and healing; if these are not on in your heart then stay away.
Enclosure of the Aesir. Seat of the Gods. Eagle’s rest. Rainbow’s end. Encircled by the ice-less water of the Ilfing. Set in the middle of the world. There dwelt the gods and their kindred; and many tidings and tales of it have come to pass both on earth and aloft. There the Allfather sat in the high-seat there, he looked out over the whole world and saw every man's acts, and knew all things which he saw.
