Soul Work – Week Beginning 2/26/18, Three Rune Spread – Message from the Runes

2018-02-26 10.01.11

This week’s 3 runes spread reads from right to left: Teiwaz (reversed), Jera, and Sowelu. I selected these runes stones on February 26, 2018, for this weeks guidance.

Far right: The overview of the situation: Teiwaz – The Warrior, Tiw, the Sky God

The Book of Runes, by Ralph H. Blum, p. 120 – 122: “This is the Rune of the Spiritual Warrior. Always the battle for the Spiritual Warrior is with the self. Funding a will through action, yet unattached to outcomes, remaining mindful that all you can really do is stay out of your own way and let the Will of Heaven flow through you – these are the hallmarks of the Spiritual Warrior.”

“Embodied in this Rune is the energy of discrimination, the swordlike quality that enables you to cut away the old, the dead, the extraneous. And yet with the Warrior Rune comes the certain knowledge that the universe always has the first move. Patience is the virtue of this Rune, and it recalls the words of St. Augustine that the reward of patience is patience.”

REVERSED: “The danger is that through hasty or ill-timed action, life force leaks out or is spilled away. If an association is short-lived, do not grieve; know that it has fulfilled its span. Matters of trust and confidence are at issue here and with them the authenticity of your way of being in the world.”

“Reversed, Teiwaz calls for examining your motives carefully. Is it self-conquest with which you are concerned, or are you trying to dominate another? Are you lusting after outcomes, or are you focused on the task for its own sake?”

“You will find the answers within yourself, not in outside advice. When you consult the Runes, you are consulting the Self, an action appropriate to the Spiritual Warrior.”

Middle: Identifies the Challenge – Jera – Harvest, Fertile Season, One Year

The Book of Runes, by Ralph H. Blum, p. 117: “A Rune of beneficial outcomes, Jera applies to any activity or endeavor to which you are committed. Be aware, however, that no quick results can be expected. A span of time is usually involved; hence the keywords “One Year,” symbolizing a full cycle before the reaping, the harvest or deliverance.”

“You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labor has a long season, a long coming to term, Jera offers encouragement of success. Know that the outcome is in the keeping of Providence and continue to persevere.”

Far left: The Course of Action Called For: Sowelu – Wholeness, Life Force, The Sun’s Energy

The Book of Runes, by Ralph H. Blum, p. 139: “Sowelu stands for wholeness, that wich out nature requires. It embodies the impulse toward self-realization and indicates the path you must follow, not from ulterior motives but from the core of your individuality.”

Seeking after wholeness is the Spiritual Warrior’s quest. And yet what you are striving to become in actuality is what, by nature, you already are. Become conscious of your essence and bring it into form, express it in a creative way. A Rune of great power, making life force available to you, Sowelu marks a time for regeneration down to the cellular level.”

“Although this Rune has no Reversed position, there is reason for caution. You may see fit to withdraw or even to retreat in the face of a pressing situation, especially if events or people are demanding that you expend your energy now. Know that such a retreat is a retreat in strength, a voyage inward for centering, for balance. Timely retreat is among the skills of the Spiritual Warrior.”

“The three rune spread reads from right to left. The far right Rune provides the overview of the situation; the center Rune identifies the challenge, and the third Rune indicates the course of action called for.” p. 50 The Book of Runes, by Ralph H. Blum

“An oracle does not give you instruction as to what to do next, nor does it predict future events.” The Book of Runes, By Ralph H. Blum, p. 8.

Namasta Until next week… Namaste & Blessed BE! ❤
