The rune today is Ingwaz of Tyr’s Aett pronounced “eeeng-wawz” (NG: Ing, the earth god) Male fertility, gestation, internal growth. Common virtues, common sense, simple strengths, family love, caring, human warmth, the home. Rest stage, a time of relief, of no anxiety. A time when all loose strings are tied and you are free to move in a new direction. Listen to yourself.
A waning Moon appears in the sky before sunrise. Completion – and a new beginning. This rune promises you future success but only if you can bring your current affairs to completion now. There is no reason to be too anxious because stress is inevitable in the final stages of any creative endeavour. Concentrate on concluding all your on-going projects to your own personal satisfaction, and then you will reap the benefits of all your past efforts. An important event, perhaps signifying a new phase of your life, awaits you in the future but it will come as a consequence of your present efforts. The fertility rune also calls on you to let go of something from the past and to put yourself in a “fertile” position, ready to respond to positive future developments.
Ingwaz Merkstave (Ingwaz cannot be reversed, but may lie in opposition): Impotence, movement without change. Production, toil, labor, work. (Note: the reversed or merkstave definitions are included only for reference as they apply to a multi-rune cast and not to a single rune that’s drawn blind from the pouch)
As with all, take only what feels right to you and disregard the rest.
