Soul Work – Week Beginning 3/12/18, Three Rune Spread – Message from the Runes

2018-03-12 10.12.47

This week’s 3 runes spread reads from right to left: Algiz (reversed), Wunjo, and Berkana (reversed) . I selected these runes stones on March 12, 2018, for this weeks guidance.

Far right: The overview of the situation: Algiz – Protection, Sedge or Rushes, The Elk.

The Book of Runes, by Ralph H. Blum, p. 111-112: “Control of the emotion 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. New opportunities and challenges are typical of this Rune. And, with them may come trespasses and unwanted influences.

“Aligz serves as a mirror for the Spiritual Warrior, the one whose battle is always with the self. The Warrior’s protection is like the curved horns of the elk, or the warning rustle of the sedge grass, for both serve to keep open space around you.”

(REVERSED) “Be thoughtful about your health and do not add to the burdens others are carrying. Look carefully at the associations you form at this time. If you see fit to become involved with people who are using you, remain conscious of that fact and take responsibility for your own position; then you can only benefit. Temperance and courtesy are the sinews of this Rune’s protective powers.”

Middle: Identifies the Challenge: Wunjo – Joy, Light.

The Book of Runes, by Ralph H. Blum, pl 115-116: “This Rune is a fruit-bearing branch. The term of travail is ended and you have come to yourself in some regard. The shift what was due has occurred; now you can freely receive Wunjo’s blessings, whether they be in material gain, in your emotional life or in a heightened sense of your own well-being.”

“This is an alchemical moment in which understanding is transmuted from knowledge. The knowledge itself was a necessary but not sufficient condition; now you can rejoice, having been carried across the gap by the Will of Heaven.”

“Joyousness accompanies new energy, energy blocked before now. Light pierces the clouds and touches the waters just as something lovely emerges from the depths: The soul is illuminated from within, at the meeting place of Heaven & Earth, the meeting of the waters. There is a new clarity which may call for you to renounce existing plans, ambitions, goals. It is proper and timely for you to do so, for Wunjo is a Rune of restoration, of the self properly aligned with the Self.”

Far Left: The course of action called for: Berkana – Growth, Rebirth, Birch Tree

The Book of Runes, by Ralph H. Blum, p. 123-124: “Another of the Cycle Runes, Berkana represents a form of fertility that fosters growth both symbolically and actually. The growth may occur in affairs of the word, family matters, the relationship of the self to the Self, or to the Divine.”

“A Rune that leads to blossoming and ripening, Berkana is concerned with the flow of beings into their new forms. Its action is gentle, penetrating, and pervasive.”

(REVERSED) “Events or, more likely, aspects of character interfere with the growth of new life. You may feel dismayed at failing to take right action. But rather than dismay, what is called for here is diligence. Examine what has occurred, your role in it, your needs, the needs of other people. Are you placing your wants before the needs of others? Strip away until you can identify the obstacles to growth in this situation. Then, penetrating gently, imitate the wind. You may be required to cultivate the soil once again, yet through correct preparation, growth is assured.”

“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.

Interesting predictions for this week. It appears we all have a lot on our plates. Think about the Rune Stones for this week and how they play into your life. What changes can you make so that you continue to move in a positive direction?

NamasteUntil next week! Namaste & Blessed Be!
