Soul Work – Week beginning 5/14/18, Three-Rune Spread, Wunjo, Uruz, Nauthiz, (all reversed) Messages from the Runes


This week’s Soul Work and three runes spread reads from right to leftWunjo (Reversed) (pg. 115), Uruz (Reversed) (pg. 100), and Nauthiz (Reversed)  (pg. 105) The Book of Runes, by Ralph H. Blum. I selected these Rune Stones on Sunday, April 22, 2018, for the week ahead.

“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

“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. A crisis, a difficult passage, even if brief, is at hand. Consideration and deliberation are called for. Ask yourself  whether you possess the virtues of seriousness, sincerity and emptiness; to posess them is to have tranquility, which is the fround for patience, clairity and perseverance.

Seen in its true light, everything is a test. And so, focused in the present, sincere toward others and trusting in your your self, know that you cannot fail.

In times of crisis, Wunjo Reversed is a useful meditation.”

“Without ears to hear and eyes to see, you may fail to take advantage of the moment. The result could well be an opportunity missed of the weakening of your position. It may seem that your ownstrength is being used agains you.

For some, URUZ reversed will serve to alert, offering clues in the form of minor failures and disappointments. For others, those more deeply unconscious or unawre, it may provide a hard jolt Reversed, this Rune calls for serious thought about the quality of your relationship to your Self.

But take heart. Consider the constant cycling of death and rebirth, the endless going and return. Everything we experoence has a beginning, a milled and an end, and is foolowed by a new beginning. Therefore do not draw back from the passage into darkness. When in deep water, become a diver.”

PLEASE NOTE: Many believe that Nauthiz cannot be reversed, and if reversed its meaning is not obvious. Ralph Blum includes a meaning for this rune stone reversed:

“As part of the Cycle of Initiation, Nauthiz is the great teached disguised as the bringer of pain and limitation. It has been said that only at the moment of greatest darkness do we become award of the light within and come to recognize the true creative power of the self.

When something within you is disowned, that this is disowned wreatks havoc. A cleansing is required here; in undertaking it, you fund a will and strengthen character. begin with what is most difficult and proceed to that which is easy. Or, conversely, begin with what is easy and proceed to that which is most difficult. Either way, remember that suffering in its original sense, merely meant “undergoing.”

Thus you are required to undergo the dark side of your passage and bring it into the light. Controlling your anger, restraining your impulses, keeping your faith firm – all this is at issue here. Modesty and good temper are essential at such a challenging time.”

This week’s soul work explains that we are experiencing a low cycle in our development. I like to think of this as a time of reflection and meditation on my thoughts and actions. It’s a time to reexamine our motives. We may feel out of control like we have lost our way. Don’t fret, this too shall pass. Step back and be aware of your emotions. Always move forward in a positive direction – this is the strength of your character that you must work on. Clear your energy of all negativity and feel your positive energy return to you. ❤

“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.


Namaste Namaste and Blessed BE! See you next week. ❤
