Additional information about Today’s Rune, Mannaz

mannaz : man, humankind

Phonetic equivalent: m
DIVINATORY MEANINGS: significator, self, family, community, relationships, social concerns
MAGICAL USES:  to represent a specific person or group of people; to establish social relationships
ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Ask and Embla, Midgard
ANALYSIS:  In its broadest sense, mannaz represents all of humanity, and therefore the entire realm of Midgard.  In more practical terms, 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 (Ymir), and with nature (the two trees).  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 gyfu 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 joined 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 Witches Rune For January 21 is The Rings

 

Today’s Witches Rune

The Rings

Meaning:  It’s important to make a distinction between the Rings and the next rune, the Romance. One is about circumstances that connect people – the other is about emotions that connect people.
The Rings essentially represents the union of two elements to produce something new. Contracts, agreements, associations, long-term unions, marriage… all this is represented by the Rings rune. Whenever two or more people work together to attain a common goal, this is symbolized by this rune.

 
While the Rings are a traditional symbol for love connection, the truth is that this rune alone does not represent this – not very strongly. Marriage for love is something fairly recent in history, after all. But it can represent the union with someone you feel that complements you (or your work) very well. When this rune appears, you have the support of a group of people (or the support of the right person). Whatever you do, don’t do it alone! Ask for help!
Reunions, meetings, parties, family dinners, religious gatherings… all are within the scope of this rune. The Rings also represent any social groups you are a part of. But this rune can also symbolize anything that binds you, whether you like it or not… agreements that limit you, relationships that smother you, groups that impose themselves on you. With more negative runes, the Rings can indicate a confrontation with the enemy and the people who oppose you. When the Scythe is nearby, a traumatic separation is likely.

The Rings are also a kind of jewelry, thus they are connected to luxury, expensive cars, beautiful clothing, epicurean meals and opulent places. This rune can suggest that one is being seduced by the superficial, and missing the relevant, the core. On a more harmless level, this rune can represent good taste, fun and group cultural activities such as theaters, museums, shows and cinema.

Today’s Witches Rune for January 20th is The Moon

Today’s Witches Rune

The Moon

Meaning:  Differently from the Sun, the Moon has more subtle powers. While it can represent changes too – after all, the moon changes it face a bit every day – these are usually much slower and long-term than the ones represented by the Sun. It’s feminine and passive.

As the rules of the nighttime, the Moon often symbolizes a transition time, in which things are not yet defined or very clear. It may represents lack of information and bad timing – any action done under the influence of the Moon may not go as expected because of that. Just like the moon influences the tides of our planet, it also influences our inner water – our emotions – causing a bit of emotional instability. This often inspires us to act without pondering.

The Moon works with undercurrents, it shows hidden developments or things done in the shadows. All secrets are protected by the Moon, and it its most negative manifestation this rune can stand for lies, deceit and even self-sabotage.

The Moon is also associated with the female cycles, thus it may represent pregnancy, family, roots and ancestors. When the Moon appears, there’s a strong need to go back to your roots in order to find comfort and understanding. It often symbolizes that you have to find yourself a safe place to wait, like a newborn in the womb… You have to be patient.

I relationship readings, the Moon can represent a strong sexual attraction (specially with the Romance rune), secret affairs, hidden and contained impulses and secrets. Although it adds strength to the attraction, it does not add speed, so the Moon can often represent that almost unbearable tension that builds between two people during a long period of time. It can also represent a certain instability in the relationship, with moments of closeness and moments of separation.

Your Rune For January 20th is Uruz

bw-uruz

bw-uruzYour Rune For Today
Uruz

Uruz is the Rune of harmony, order and inner strength. Often it marks endings and beginnings of periods in our lives. Uruz also symbolizes your ability to tackle new challenges by confronting them with the powers that lie within you. Opportunities probably abound for you right now.

Additional information about Today’s Rune, Urus

uruz: aurochs
Phonetic equivalent: u
DIVINATORY MEANINGS: passion, vitality, instinct, wildness, sexuality, fertility, the
unconscious, primitive mind, irrationality,shamanic experience, rite of passage
MAGICAL USES: for money, business, promotion,finding a job, achieving a goal, starting new
ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Ullr, Loki, Odin (as shaman)
ANALYSIS: The aurochs was a species of wild ox, similar to a bison, that was once found all over Europe, but which became extinct sometime in the 17th century. They were said to be slightly smaller than elephants, and had horns as long as six feet, which believed were highly prized by the Germanii as drinking horns. Paintings of aurochs have been found in Neolithic caves, and it believed that the aurochs hunt had some significance as a rite of passage for a boy entering manhood. The aurochs is the epitome of the wild animal, as opposed to the domesticated cattle represented by fehu.
Uruz is the rune of the God of the sacred hunt and his shaman/priest. Following the kind of
mundane, day-to-day survival represented by fehu, it is the first recognition by mankind of the divine in nature, and his first attempt to control it through the use of sympathetic magic. It also represents an awareness of death and our own mortality, which may well be the only thing that truly distinguishes us from other animals. The energy of this rune is raw, powerful, and distinctly masculine, in the sense that it is first pure, elemental fire. The boy who has
killed the aurochs has just entered manhood, and has therefore been initiated into the first level of the mysteries – the awareness that the source of life is death.

Today’s Witches Rune for January 18th is Man

man

manToday’s Witches Rune

Man

Meaning:  The Man rune demands action. It’s not longer time to quietly sit and think, or to hide yourself and heal. No, it’s time to get up and fight for what you want. If things are slow or stagnated, change them. Begin something new. It’s not a moment to let things flow as they will, but to grab the reigns and gain control over the situation. Be the leader and defend your stand.

While the Woman rune is about healing, this one can be about defending yourself, and, sometimes, hurting or getting hurt in the process. You may have to defend your opinions, your actions or choices against some aggressive people. This rune offers you a challenge, but is also shows that you have the resources needed to face it. Naturally, this rune has very aggressive potentials in it, and they need a good deal of discipline in order to not become sorely destructive.

The Man rune also accelerates everything… nothing stays still when its around. The outcome of your question may happen sooner than you expected, but the result will probably be unexpected. It does not mean that all will go wrong, no – things will simply develop in unseen ways.

In relationship readings, the Man rune promises a period of instability, so it’s important to not have high expectations. Under the influence of this rune, the relationship can be a stairway to Heaven or a ticket to Hell… and sometimes both, in a short period of time. It promises a bumpy journey for the heart, but with a great level of intensity. The Man rune can stand for love/hate relationship, cat and rat games and obsessions… the kind of things that turns one nuts (for good and for bad). This rune is good in questions concerning sexuality.
