Runic Astrology for 6th Decmeber
I wanted to let you know what was going on for me. You may have found me through my yoga teaching, massage therapy, Rest Work, or Embodiment work, or even through my spiritual work. Since I caught, experienced and I’m in the recovery from the ‘Rona my thoughts and feelings for the world have changed. I was very much the medical model with a small amount of esoteric at the edges. This pattern of thoughts and beliefs has changed within me, as things are wont to do when we get sick. Crisis or strife breeds adaption and change, it’s how we are evolved as human organisms. This is to invite you to hang with me as I delve into a more esoteric model of the universe, I’m still interested in healing, medicine, and psychology, and all of those things will influence where I’m going now. They are just not my prime focus. If this is not for you, the unsubscribe link is at the bottom of this email, and that is cool. Have an awesome Yule, and if you want me, I’ll be here. Back to our regularly scheduled programming. Every week I’m doing a Runic-Astrology reading for the week, Runic astrology is a Re-imagined view of how the ancient people of the North, the Vikings viewed our cosmos. With our modern understanding of Astrology as a basis. The more I play with and evolve this model more fun I’m having with it. There is a more in depth reading on my membership site here. So lets go. The runes have different and varied energies that they are attracted too, much like a magnet. When that energy is present, they show up. Our neurology, the nerves that run through our bodies are designed to recognise patterns, and when we are aware of specific energies around us, we notice that resonance. The runes are a visual way to see that energy’s presence. For rune meanings, I’m doing a rune of the day on Instagram, and on the membership site. He is bringing the moon to shine on the 3rd phase of her cycle, this energy is working with Urd, a norn, she is the goddess of Fate, and as such likes to change all the things to fit her ideas. This energy breeds excitement, energy and potential explosions. Its filtered through the energy of Radio, the journey rune, and this will make the need for adventures an explosive topic, especially with lockdowns, travel restrictions, tiers and stay at home orders. So be ready to go for a drive on Monday, somewhere new. Just to stop this angst boiling over. Manni is working with, but also arguing with Odin today, this is likely to involve emotions getting in the way of making reasonable decisions, when you do make a decision it’s going to be epic. Odin likes knowledge and communication, so perhaps a visit to somewhere historical will help that energy pacify. Tuesday Manni, Vili and Vi, Thor and Loki are chilling, so look to where you are most content, don’t isolate yourself in your contentment, as the energy of Peroth (lust and luck) is here too. Loki is going to want you to chill by yourself, Thor just wants some hot chocolate, and a cake, and a sandwich, and maybe a book, and some chips. Peroth in these energy’s is going to either push your significant other into your arms and be cosy and content or push them away as you build a pillow fort. With this in mind, Manni and Sunna are not being cordiual, so watch where your actions are pushing your loved ones away. If you do expect a bang. Invite them into your fort, and put on a documentary about somewhere you want to visit. The energy of Radio is attracted to Manni toady. Be ready for all the Emos. Wednesday. Thor, Loki and Vili and Vi are out raiding, all with the resonance of Peroth. This combined energy is going to bring some awesomeness, Your luck is going to grow, and focus, and your success is going to feel much easier. DO all the things to build your work life as well as your love life here. Peroth bring the aspect of luck to this focus and expansion (as well as lust, but let’s keep this PG). This energy has been around since august, and reaches it head around the solstice. Thursday. Manni and Thor, and Villi and VI are not so much getting on, more like working on the same project and getting pissed that the other has the scissors. This interaction with the energy of Gebo will bring up emotions around being valued and your value to others. Plus, how that value manifests in the world. Today is a good day to receive gifts that others have given, and gift yourself. (Order on Monday for a Thursday delivery.) If you gift, gift in ways that enhance your reputation, and make sure those gifts are well thought out. Friday Manni and Urd are not on speaking terms, this energy is that of Wunjo. Emo’s everywhere. The best solution is to take yourself under the blanket and watch Netflix, or read a book, with all the comfy. Saturday Manni and Aegir are bringing the imagination today, especially when you are bringing the imagination of considerable change, Hagalaz is here for that. Dream into what you want to change into, like a caterpillar into a butterfly. Sunday Manni and Mengloth are bffs today, so your emotions are going to be healing, whether you like it or not, the Isaz energy here will help you shatter or smooth over blocks. Do the work, get the reward. I hope you find this useful. For the new year I’m offering runic guides to help you navigate the world beyond 2020. 2021 Rune Guides 25.00
Runes for 9th November
Runic Energy Patterns for the Week 9th November 2020 Sunna: This week starts with things feeling stuck, icky and ridged. Energy that should flow is feeling stuck and frozen. This energy is probably around the expression of the personal and moving the energy into more impersonal ways. This energy resolves by the end of the week, as Sunna moves her vibration, by the weekend you our self-expression will be super focused and bright. This energy will help you find your calm an optimism for life. Odin: This week is the time to bring your mind online, use your words to bring your message to those around you. You may find that the more you serve with your words the more powerful, and influential you become. The more you gift, the greater your renown. At the very least you will find that you are more able to express yourself in ways that are useful to your clan. Frigg This week is a time to expand on your words and language of love in such a way that your build relationships. This goes hand in hand with Odin’s influence, use your language, to spread love, not only is Frigg bringing you that energy, so is Odin. This mighty husband and wife combo of magical awesomeness brings the ability to build romantic relationships using language alone. Zoom dating is your friend, if that is your bag. If you are in a relationship, then using your words to build it will have exponential results. Tyr The one handed one brings his influence and energy to you in the realm of the material. No matter what else happens this week you are going to find that your basic needs are met, easily. Make sure you act in concert with your ethics, in thought and word and dead hear. Thor The Thunder brings your creativity. At the beginning of the week it’s a little too focused, stuck and fetid. The way to break through. Brute force, obviously. If you cannot tolerate the first part of the week being stuck, switch to smashing it with a hammer. A physical act of creativity may push you through the morass that Sunna has drawn down. Loki Your career or work will benefit with putting some energy into having fun while working. Not just fun, push the edges and you will find that your rewards are even more fun and work flowing easily. When it comes to love, you know the kind you clean up with a mop and bucket. This energy is twice as hard (get it) play, have fun. Consensually Urd Ride this week like a wave, limits that you never even imagined will be butting up against you professionally, and the only way past is to let your liquid nature flow past them. Don’t forget to learn from them as you zoom past. Aegir When you are blocked or stuck this week, look for ways to utilise the skills you’ve had that are quite old, ones you’ve learned a long time ago. Looking at the energy of Odin and Frigg, then you may do well to see where you can use your language in ways you’ve not done in a while to get unblocked. Mengloth You will find that using your inner wound as a tool to help you recover and grow is your greatest asset right now. Only you know what your wound is, actually, I do too. So, if you need help with it let me know. Use this energy to help you regrow, as well as bring those in your clan new growth.
Cosmic Rune Energies
Week: 2nd to 9th November 2020 This week in runic energies. Change is coming, with your perceptions perhaps you will be able to see more clearly. The energy that is coming is that of change for enlightenment, for uncovering. Keep an eye out for hidden treasure that will show itself. Now is the time to look to your friends and those you trust. As the dark time of the year approaches who will you keep close to bring your clan through the dark times. They will make themselves known to you this week. Loki’s influence on the All father wains, he is more interested in what happens next, and Odin is feeling a bit more included to sit back and chill, keep everything nice and balanced to make sure that you communicate clearly. Mr Wednesday is more than happy to make sure you put the heating on a feal toasty and warm. Eat your favourite things. Illumination comes, Lady Frigg brings the energy of beauty and the magic of the distaff. See where you can shine your light through the lens of how freaking good you look, as well as your skills and talents. But mainly how irrespirable you are to your lover. Or if that does not work, set fire to it, so you can see what’s going on around you. (NB don’t burn things, if you do get a grown up to help you) Saddle up you and your to-do list are going for a romp this week, things that need doing will happen quickly and smoothly, and with probably a little movement and travel along the way. Remember to make sure you do it morally right, or you will be thrown to the floor and it’s going to hurt. What is burning within you will continue to smoulder, ready for when you want to spring into furious action with it. You’ve got about 18 days to use this smouldering energy, so make sure the time is right to enact your plan. Luck this week is going to be an interesting experience, it will feel bogged down and slow. Bureaucratic or miss communication is going to get in the way. Unless of course you tie it with sex. You know Cardi B type WAP sex. If you use this bureaucratic misfortune to get WAP then, maybe, just maybe you’ll get lucky. But probably not how you expect it. Use protection. The fates are firmly bobbing about on their long ship this week, be aware that as the sea can go from calm to stormy in the blink of an eye, so can fate this week. She is ready to change, unexpectedly. This change will however wash you clean of everything. Leaving you sopping wet, shivering and exhausted. But clean. Now is the time to trust your unconscious your dreams. As the true and honourable way to act is flowing through them right now. And for the next couple of years, so when your dreams speak write them down. Notice in others their moral compass, their unconscious mind will let you know. The old ways are burning. Quite latterly in some places, on a societal level. In yourself see where your old patterns are beginning to get too hot to handle or are becoming toxic. You can start to burn them up whenever you are ready. But make sure you are aware of them, or you are going to find your fingers get burned or you get toxic. This and more available on my Patreon.

Patterns in the Cosmos.
Patterns. I like patterns, how things influence other things, how actions cause other other actions, and so on into a beautiful dance of the cosmos. I find this fascinating. One thing our human brains are great at picking up is the subtle patterns that repeat and resonate with our bias, our interests, our desires. This is why we celebrate holidays like Halloween, or its Celtic name Samhain, (I say sow-wen to pronounce it, maybe I’m wrong, I don’t mind). In the northern tradition this period is called the wild hunt and it’s the time gods go to war across the sky’s. They go to war against the Jotun who want to freeze and batter the lands of humans into wind ravaged splinters, sea torn ruins or simply freeze us solid. In the stories of celtic, northern tradition and Christian it is a time when you honour the dead and the saints/heroes. The veil between worlds is thin now. This is where our pattern perception picks up in our humanness. We sense the ancient changes in the environment around us, we put up icons to ward against the creatures that dwell in the darkness. We light candles, carve effigies to scare off negative influence, we hunker down in our houses warm, eating things that make us feel safe. This is primal and mammalian. Our nervous systems is picking up patterns that we don’t have the social tools to deal with, so we use carved pumpkins and candy to buy off the fear, the spirts. The patterns of the environment around us are super subtle, maybe even too subtle to notice until they are screaming you in the face. This is where tradition and ritual have a place. Because the sensitise people, those who could realise the super minute changes in the cosmos wanted to tell everyone there is a threat around, but everyone ignored them until it went wrong. So what did the sensitive people do? What did the Witch, Shaman, Priest, Gothi do? They made rituals and known dates. When the rituals they came up with to keep people safe were enacted, by people who did not realise completely why. And you know what? It does not matter why the ritual was done to keep you safe, to appease the spirts, to honour the ancient dead, it just matters that it is done. Of course, it’s better to do it with intent. But the repeated actions of generations bring generational intent with them. This is why we have collective rituals, to satisfy the pattern reignition of the Seer, the Sorcerer, the Oracle. To keep their community safe. So honour your ancient dead, the heroes and gods, leave out a carved pumpkin or swead, burn the candle and give the candy or mead. Satisfy the patterns, of the cosmos. Feel safer, and have a pumpkin spice latte.
