Today’s Witches Rune

The Birds/Flight

Meaning:  The three flying birds signifies that you will be getting messages; unexpected news that may alter or change your life completely if it is the leading rune. Generally its interpretation is positive but look to the adjacent runes to give further clarity. It can also mean unexpected news from, or about, someone not heard from on a long time, reminders from the past and inheritance.

bw-dagazYour Rune For Today

Additional information about Today’s Rune, Dagaz

ðagaz : day

 

Phonetic equivalent: d (pronounced as ‘th’, as in ‘this’)

 
DIVINATORY MEANINGS: happiness, success, activity, a fulfilling lifestyle, satisfaction

 
MAGICAL USES:  to bring a positive outcome

 
ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Sunna, Baldr, Nerthus, Yggdrasil

 
ANALYSIS:  This rune effectively marks the end of the third aett, leaving only oþila to complete the cycle.  As in the previous two aetts, ðagaz concludes the third with light and hope. However, while wunjo represented earthly glories and the sun, heavenly the day brings these two realms together, bringing the more abstract light and power of sowulo ‘down to earth’ and applying it to our everyday lives.

 
The shape of the rune itself denotes this kind of interconnection.  It is reminiscent of gebo, with its balance of masculine, feminine and the four elements, but ðagaz makes further connections to the celestial and the realm of nature.  Like inguz, it symbolizes harmony with one’s environment. but again takes it a step further, implying a harmonious relationship with the spiritual environment as well.  It is a bringing together of all six cardinal points – the four compass directions, the celestial realm above us where the Gods are thought to dwell; and that which is below – all the spirits of the earth and of nature.  All of these things are balanced and integrated through ðagaz and brought into our daily lives.

Today’s Witches Rune

The Blank Rune/The Black Rune

Meaning: This sigil is supposed to pictorially represent ‘dark’; it is the rune of difficulties. It tells of negative influences ruling for a while; things are lost and experienced, but they will ultimately lead to positivity. For all are learning stages, and unless one door closes how will another one open. Look at the nearest runes to shed further light regarding the brevity of the problem and how soon it will happen.

Your Rune for March 3rd is Fehu

bw-fehu

bw-fehu

Your Rune For Today
Fehu

Fehu is the Rune of prosperity, good luck and unbridled creative energies. Being associated with Frey, this Rune is also a powerful omen of fertility. Fehu is one of the three Mother Stones and should never be taken lightly.

Additional information about Today’s Rune, Fehu

fehu: cattle

 

Phonetic equivalent: f

 
DIVINATORY MEANINGS: prosperity, money, wealth, concern with physical and financial needs, goals, promotion, self-esteem, centredness, karma

 

MAGICAL USES: for money, business, promotion, finding a job, achieving a goal, starting new enterprises

 
ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Freyr, Brisingamen, Gullveig, Dwarfs, Sigurd & the Otter’s Gold

 
ANALYSIS: Fehu is both the day-to-day reality of our lives and the catalyst that awakens us to what lies beyond.  It is whatever we think we are which frequently bbears no resemblance to what we will eventually find.  It is also our home, for after all our wanderings we will need to attend to our physical needs and ground ourselves in the simple pleasures of home, family, and good work.  Oz might be a fun place to visit, but after a while all you really want to do is go back to Kansas.

 

Fehu reminds us that we must be secure in our physical situation before embarking upon any spiritual journey.  We all must begin with the mundane reality of our lives, although many people never get beyond this.  In many ways, we have become as domesticated as the cattle, living our day-to-day existence without wanting or even being aware of anything more being possible.  The first step in breaking away from this situation is to catch a glimpse of what is possible, without dwelling on what security we may lose to attain it.

Today’s Witches Rune for March 2nd is The Sun

Today’s Witches Rune

The Sun

Meaning: This is the rune of success, it denotes a positive outcome, denotes personal progress, and personal enrichment of one’s life. If you are just wanting an uncomplicated ‘YES’ or ‘NO’ answer to your question then it is a clear ‘YES’ when it appears as the ‘leading rune’, nearest to you . If its position is furthest from you then the affirmation still stands but it is delayed or influenced by other aspects.

Your Rune For Monday, March 2 is Hagalaz

bw-hagalaz

bw-hagalazYour Rune For Today
Hagalaz

Hagalaz is the hail Rune. It denotes chaos, destruction and disruption on a primal level. You may experience delays in moving toward your goals.

Additional information about Today’s Rune, Hagalaz 

hagalaz : hail

Phonetic equivalent: h

 
DIVINATORY MEANINGS: sudden loss, ordeal, destruction, disaster, clearance, testing, karmic lesson, drastic change.

 
MAGICAL USES:  removing unwanted influences, breaking destructive patterns

 
ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Ragnarok, Loki, Frost Giants

 
ANALYSIS:  The idea of the destruction of the old being necessary to the growth of the new, as contained in the Norse myth of Ragnarok, is essential to our understanding of this rune.  Interestingly enough, hagalaz lies between sowulo (fire) and isa (ice), reminding us of the Norse creation myth and the creative potential that lies between these two opposites, even though their meeting may seem first to be destructive.  Like the Tower in the Tarot, hagalaz is only a negative rune if we choose to view it in that way, and refuse to learn its lessons.  Appearing as it does at the beginning of the second aett, it marks both a beginning and an end, and knocks us out of the safety and complacency of wunjo.  It represents what a friend of mine used to refer to as the ‘flying ladle Fates, syndrome’ – that whenever things appear to be going too well, you can expect a good, healthy whack in the head from the Fates, just to make sure you’re paying attention.

 
These sorts of ‘wake-up calls’ from the Gods will happen frequently throughout a person’s life, but are often misinterpreted as divine punishment for some imagined wrong when in fact they are merely a way of drawing your attention to a recurrent pattern in your life.  Unfortunately, these types of events have a tendency to repeat themselves with greater and greater severity until the lesson is learned and the pattern is broken.  For example, someone who needs to break their dependency on a certain type of person will find themselves in relationships with such people over and over again with more and more disastrous results until they recognize the pattern as emanating from themselves and break it willingly.
