Your Rune For Tuesday, Sept., 16th is Ansuz


bw-ansuzYour Rune For Today

Ansuz represents mankind’s spiritual connection to God and the universe. It is often referred to as the “God Rune.” This Rune embodies reason, truth and justice. It denotes the coming of knowledge and true counsel from a higher authority.


Additional Information about the Rune, Ansuz provided by the Runic Journey


ansuz : Odin

Phonetic equivalent: a (as in ‘fall’)

authority figure, leader, mind & body balance, justice, shaman, clairvoyant
for wise decisions, success, leadership; to help in divination and magic
This rune represents the instinctive, primal energy of uruz tempered with the discipline and experience of þurisaz. These elements are combined in the personage of Odin, who exhibits the characteristics of both chieftain and shaman – a god of wisdom as well as war. Odin is also a shaman, travelling between the worlds on his eight-legged horse, Sleipnir.Ansuz is a balanced rune. As with fehu, many people choose to remain at this point in their journey. It represents power, both secular and magical, and this power can be quite seductive. Odin has learned the lessons of the first three runes, thus gaining the wisdom to rule wisely, but this is really only another beginning. He has only gained temporal power, and has only a few of the tools he will need to perfect himself spiritually. There is a certain lack of compassion and perspective in this rune. Odin sits high above his world, looking down and making decisions, but he doesn’t yet have the capacity to really care about or understand his people or himself. He still needs that emotional connection to become a truly great leader.

bw-mannazYour Rune For Today

Now is the time for you to explore your inner self and those of others. Your intelligence and creativity are very well honed at the moment. Cooperation from and with others should be very easy to attain.

Mannaz : man, humankind

Phonetic equivalent: m

significator, self, family, community, relationships, social concerns
to represent a specific person or group of people; to establish social relationships
Ask and Embla, Midgard
In its broadest sense, mannaz represents all of humanity, and therefore the entire realm of Midgard. In more practical terms, though, it is those with whom we have personal connections, from our immediate circle of family and friends to the wider community around us, reminding us of our nature as social animals. It also represents our connection with the Gods and with nature, through the two Norse myths of the creation of humans; the first where they sprang from Ymir’s body, and the second in which they were created from two logs by a river. It takes the raw energy of ehwaz and controls it through our social conscience, reminding us of those we affect with our deeds both magical and mundane.The rune itself resembles gebo with its joining of masculine and feminine elements, but is much more complete. It is the entire web of human relationships, with the self at the centre, which mirrors the web of fate explored through raiðo. But while that web was more or less fixed, this one is mutable and alive. Past and present, male and female, self and other – all opposites are joined here and made whole. Mannaz is our home, and speaks for all those whose lives we touch when we use the gifts we have been given through the runes.

Your Rune For Friday, September 12 is Hagalaz


bw-hagalazYour Rune For Today

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 on Hagalaz courtesy of The Runic Journey

hagalaz : hail

sudden loss, ordeal, destruction, disaster, clearance, testing, karmic lesson, drastic change.
removing unwanted influences, breaking destructive patterns
Ragnarok, Loki, Frost Giants
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 kenaz (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 at 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 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.

Your Rune For Thursday, September 11 is Wunjo


bw-wunjoYour Rune For Today

Wunjo denotes joy and shared bliss. It may also represent a job well done and the satisfaction one feels from completing such a task. Wunjo brings good fortune and harmony.



Additional Information on this Rune provided by Bewitching

Also called Wynn
Old Norse name: none
Flower: larkspur; love-in-a-mist (emotional/sexual)
Gem: diamond, moss agate
Number: 6

The first way to interpret Wunjo is the way most rune readers do-as joy and happiness, plain and simple. Wunjo in a reading is always an excellent omen, especially when it appears in a result position. If it appears with “news” runes, such as Ansuz, it can mean that the querent will be getting good news. If it appears with a rune such as Gebo, it indicates that all is well with the querent’s relationships. With travel runes, Wunjo indicates that the journey in question will be successful.

When reversed Wunjo would, obviously, mean querent will experiences unhappiness. It can indicate that a third party is causing trouble. It can also signify a need for caution, and if the querent has a decision to make, he may want to delay doing so for six days, weeks, or months (exactly when will be determined by the other runes in the reading and possibly by the reading itself).

The other way to interpret Wunjo comes from Freya Aswynn, whom I quote a lot throughout this section (she’s incredibly knowledgeable about the runes and their Teutonic backgrounds-I highly suggest reading Northern Mysteries and Magick for a thorough look into Freya’s insights). The primitive Germanic word “wunjo” meant perfection; and from “wunjo” were derived the German “Wunsch” and the Dutch “wens,” both of which mean wish. One of the aspects of Odin, to whom Wunjo is attributed, was as a fulfiller of wishes. So Wunjo can indicate wishes, either wishes fulfilled or wishes yet to be fulfilled, and especially wishes that would push the querent closer to his ideal, closer to perfection, in other words.
