Rune Casting of the day…and boy did I need it. Calmed my nerves and made me feel better…what a relief. This is a five Rune spread:
I use Ralph H. Blum’s The Book of Runes for my interpretations.
1. Past: 10 Algiz. Protection, Sedge or Rushes, The Elk.
"Control of the emotions is at issue here. During times of transition, shifts in life course, and accelerated self-change, it is important not to collapse yourself into your emotions, the highs as well as the lows…" -Ralph H. Blum
2. You Now: 23. Isa. Standstill, Withdrawal, Ice.
"Be patient, for this is the period of gestation that precedes a rebirth. Positive accomplishment is unlikely now…there is a freeze on useful activity , all your plans are on hold…Submit and be still…Remain mindful that the seed of the new is present in the shell of the old, the seed of unrealized potential, the seed of the good." - Ralph H. Blum
3. Future: 12. Wunjo. (Reversed). Joy Light.
"Things are slow in coming to fruition, The process of birth is long and arduous, and fears arise for the safety of the child within…Seen in its true light, EVERYTHING is a test…" -Ralph H. Blum (Strive for patience, clarity, and perseverance).
4. Foundation: 2. Gebo. Partnership. A gift.
"For true partnership is achieved only by separate and whole beings who retain their separateness even as they unite. Remember to let the winds of Heaven dance between you…" -Ralph H. Blum.
5: Challenge: 4. Othila. (Reversed). Separation, Retreat, Inheritance.
"This is not a time to be bound by old conditioning, old authority. Consider not only what will benefit you but what will benefit others, and act according to the light you possess now in your life…total honesty is required…Adaptability and skillful means are the methods to cultivate at this time. And still you must wait for the universe to act…" - Ralph H. Blum.
6. New Situation: 21. Thurisaz. (Reversed). Gateway, Place of Non-Action, The God Thor.
"The nature of your passage depends on the quality of your attitude, the clarity of your intention, and the steadfastness of your will. Be certain that you are not suffering over your suffering…hasty decisions at this time may cause regrets…Be still, collect yourself, and wait on the Will of Heaven." -Ralph H. Blum
