Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham- For more information about Oir

Oir

Epiphany, realization, peak, lightning flash, elucidation

Tree: Spindle (Euonymus spp.)

Letter: Th

Oir signifies the realization something is at its peak. It is a few of insight and understanding; it is the “bolt of lightning” like Prometheus’s fire that enables human beings to evolve. Lifting the veil of ignorance can be painful and seeing the truth does not always feel like a gift. The possession of knowledge is a complex burden to carry: it is too complicated to qualify as “good” or bad”. Nevertheless, some epiphanies can be life-changers. They can grant us the ability to make good decisions and liberate us from cycles we no longer wish to participate in.

Believers in reincarnation speculate the reason we cannot remember our past lives whenever we want is because all of that information would fry our little human brains. The same is true of clairvoyance: if we could see all of the non-corporeal activity around us, it would likely send us straight into the asylum. A little fire is good; burning the house down or freezing to death for lack of a pack of matches is not good. Seeking knowledge is great; seeking to know it all at the expense of one’s sanity and personal hygiene never works out. Running away from the life of the mind ends badly in equal measure. As usual, this Ogham implies a balance should be struck.

Hêng / Durability

Arousing Thunder and penetrating Wind.
Close companions in any storm:
The Superior Person possesses a resiliency and durability that lets him remain firmly and faithfully on course.
Such constancy deserves success.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

Endurance is the key to success in this situation.
However, durability is not synonymous with stone-like rigidity.
True resilience requires a flexibility that allows adaptation to any adverse condition, while still remaining true to the core.
Can you maintain your integrity under any circumstance?
Can you influence the situation without giving opposing forces anything to resist?
Then you will endure to reach your goal.

Numerology

From Numerology Single Digit Numbers – for more information about number 1

One

Among the nine single-digit numbers, the 1 holds a special place in numerology.

The Numerology Meaning of the Number 1: THE PRIMAL FORCE

From a spiritual perspective, the 1 is the number of creation – the primal force from which all other numbers spring forth. Some say once you truly understand the place and function of this elemental number, enlightenment will be yours.

This statement doesn’t apply to a Numerologist’s perspective alone, but perhaps it’s a good place to start since the personality of the number 1 aligns nicely with its elevated spiritual symbolism.

The 1 is a doer, a powerful force that produces results.

The 1 is aggressive – a necessary trait for creating, and not allowing anything to limit its potential. The 1 is the spearhead, always in the forefront directing and leading others.

The shape of this number reflects its meaning; the 1 walks upright with pride and purpose – strong, determined, and unwavering with a specific goal in mind. The 1 is capable of turning ideas into reality – pushing obstacles aside or simply drilling right through them.

The 1 tends to have a simple, straightforward view of life, heedless of its many complexities.

An individual with the dynamic 1 trusts their ability to separate right from wrong, doesn’t waste time on abstract ideas, and rarely follows a path that isn’t in line with their result-oriented goal. The 1 is no preacher, no philosopher, spiritual explorer, nor dreamer – and certainly not an idealist. They are pragmatic, ruthless conquerors, and warriors extraordinaire. The 1 is individualistic and independent to a fault. They will attempt to force their viewpoint on you but have no desire to hear yours.

The 1 can be confrontational, jealous, and exceedingly stubborn, but also courageous and willing to try anything new (with promise) even at great risk. They have a sense of honor and responsibility that demands respect and are the first to defend injustice and hypocrisy.

Befriend a 1 and you have a friend for life.

Fortunately, the 1 has a great capacity for humor, often self-depreciating, so you can poke fun at your friend and not worry about hurt feelings. But don’t cater to them to win love or friendship or you will lose their respect. Stand up to a 1 and you may lose the fight, but you’ll gain admiration. Working for a 1 you will be pushed to the limit, abused at all hours, and incapable of living up to unreasonable expectations. But you will also become the best you can be.

When in trouble, you want a friend with a strong 1 on your side, and you won’t find a braver partner or a more dedicated protector. But, if the 1 is your enemy, you could be crushed without mercy. And be forewarned, the number 1 is the most difficult of all lovers, demanding, jealous, confrontational, and impatient.

If you have a 1 in your core numbers, your happiness and sense of satisfaction will come from your work more than any other source.

Ace Of Wands

The meaning of the Ace of Wands Shadowscapes Tarot

The Ace of Wands Shadowscapes Tarot represents creativity in excitement, adventure, a challenge to motivate forward with courage and confidence.

Steadily, the wand plugged into the ground. From there, it spreads out a crimson light, like the usual reactions when flint stones collide in a pile of dust, so on, inspiration also originates from that light.

The spirits and wind goblins began to leave the residence. They hide in the shape of normal light spots, not very prominent, and then, escape from leaves, nooks, boulders and the sky. There was a flash of lightning. The challenge began to be revealed. Invitations were spread everywhere at dawn.

Once being set, the fire became unstable, seemingly unpredictable and was out of control. The source of that energy, unrestrained, exploded, frantically turned into a wildfire. Let’s take this wild opportunity and shine on the intense fire.

These animals are the spirits and guardians of the Wand: fox, cat, lion. They were brilliant with the light of wisdom and prudence, dashing like an arrow flying through the world, with the fiery flames of a fierce and powerful spirit.

Keywords related to the Ace of Wands Shadowscapes Tarot: energy, inspiration, innovation, optimism, invention, trust, enthusiasm, willpower, tenacity, fertilization, creativity, conception, growth, sexuality, motivation, initiative, new project, new business, the power of fire element, a turning point, new experiences, new ideas, new start, turning ambition into action.

Celtic Ogham

From A Druid Ogham

Ioho

Grace, death, letting go, endings, rest, the beauty of decay

Tree: Yew (Taxus spp.)

Letter: Y

Ioho symbolizes the acceptance of enduring realities and legacies of the past. If you draw Ioho, look for the end of a phase or cycle. Ioho suggests you are handling or will handle the matter at hand with dignity and grace.

Modern culture has spent a great deal of time running away from the ideas of death and decay as natural, welcome processes. As a result, we have a society obsessed with launching our species into space for fear of extinction, a medical industry bent on extending life long after it has ceased to have any quality, and a fixation on youth that motivates the middle aged to undergo brutal, grisly procedures in order to look twenty. When we frame aging (not just of human beings) in a sensible way, we understand that getting old isn’t so terrible. People age and die. Technologies change. Weeks become years. Eras fade away. Letting go is for the best.

Ioho is about accepting limits gracefully. We cannot control much of what is around us or what happens to us in life, but we can control a great deal of how we perceive it and what we decide to do about it.

Though this Ogham has profound similarities to the Death card of the Tarot, like that card, 99.9 percent of the time it is not to be taken literally. Drawing Ioho does not mean you or someone in your circle is fated for immediate death. Instead, it signifies the necessary end and inevitability of all things decaying and dying. More often than not, the death process is much slower than we impatient humans are able to bear. Look for a lesson that comes from the acceptance of endings rather than literal death.

Questions when you draw Ioho:

The Hermit

Keywords: inner wisdom, solitude, withdrawal, quiet, teacher or guru, research, seeker

Attributes: Virgo (Earth)

General meaning:  In order to get the answers you seek, it may be time to turn inward.  Shut out your distractions so that you may discover the wisdom within.  Answers are rarely found in another – everything you need is within yourself.  This card can also indicate a need to withdraw from circumstances in order to get a better perspective.  Sometimes a player needs a break from the grind.

Reversed:  Repeating your past mistakes.  Not learning.  This can indicate a lack of wisdom. Doing things without thinking of the consequences.  It can also indicate the extremes of solitude – like being some sort of creepy recluse.  Don’t lock yourself away.  It gets mighty lonely on that mountain top.

Affirmation: “Everything I need is within me.  I don’t need to look outside myself for answers.”

Queen of Swords – Court Card

Learning lessons; manipulation

The Queen of Swords is a mature woman who walks through a pit of fire with confidence. Although the flames flare around her on all sides, her face is calm, her eyes straight ahead. She has learned that life offers both positive and negative learning experiences and that one becomes stronger by refusing to give in to fear an despair. In one hand she carries a raised sword, while the other rests on the head of a Fire dragon who is mostly hidden behind her and from whose mouth issues more flames. The sword represents the Queen’s faith in her ability to fight her way through any adversity, while the huge dragon-companion symbolizes astral and spiritual teachers who are always beside us, not to impede our progress by making life to smooth, but to guide our steps through any “trial” to safety. The Queen wears a crown with a triangular-shaped, red stone in front, symbolic of her connectedness with both the Goddess and her own feminine power. Three little Fire dragons frolic in the flames, encouraging her to continue her path.

Divinatory Meaning: This card indicates a powerful feminine influence. You will be faced with with a period in your life that makes you learns an important lesson you have avoided. Be careful getting your way in something through manipulation, for later this action will come back to haunt you.

This rune signifies the kind of communication that changes your course of action, so there may be shake-ups or surprises in events you had already planned.

UILLEAN

Ui (sometimes interpreted as Pe) is Uillean, the Honeysuckle. Associated with the manifestation of will, the Honeysuckle starts as a small seed and creeps along, growing and spreading over time. Honeysuckle twists and spirals up and over its surroundings, its soft yellow flowers releasing a sweet scent. It is the flower of unspoken desire, hidden needs, secret wants, but it also represents our goals of finding our true Self.

From a medicinal standpoint, the honeysuckle can be useful as well. Dioscorides says,

“the ripe seed gathered and dried in the shadow and drunk for four days together, doth waste and consume away the hardness of the spleen and removeth wearisomeness, helpeth the shortness and difficulty of breathing, cureth the hicket (hiccough), etc. A syrup made of the flowers is good to be drunk against diseases of the lungs and spleen.”

Uillean Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: When this symbol appears, it means you need to allow yourself the freedom to pursue your desire. If you’ve got hopes or dreams that are unattained, now is your time to start considering whether they’re remain just dreams, or become reality. Denying yourself the chance to enjoy life is unfair.

Magical Aspects: Take the time to experience joy, but make sure you stay true to your values and beliefs as well. In many Wiccan traditions, the Charge of the Goddess is quoted as a reminder of this: All acts of love and pleasure are my rituals. Another aspect of this symbol is that sometimes, mysteries which seem to be hidden may not be as hard to delve into as you think–sometimes, you’ve just been sidetracked by distractions.

Numerology Number

From NUMEROLOGY SINGLE DIGIT NUMBERS

Eight

The most misunderstood number in numerology. The Numerology Meaning of the Number 8: BALANCE & POWER

In Numerology, both novices and professionals alike tend to focus on the “money and power” image of the 8. Often when a client requests a name change consultation, it’s because they want to add 8s to their chart with the mistaken belief it will bring them money and power.

It is true that the 8, more than any other number, emphasizes the areas of career, business, finances, and authority.

As with other single-digit numbers, the shape reflects its most important attribute; in the case of the 8 it signifies balance. The 8 is the great Karmic Equalizer, a force that creates just as efficiently as it destroys. When the 8 comes knocking, you can be assured you will reap what you’ve sown.

The 8 creates a balance between the material and spiritual worlds.

At its best, it is as spiritual as it is materialistic. The sacred side of the 8 is practical, rational, and intelligent. It knows the difference between make-believe and genuine realization.

On the material plane, it is focused on results – often in the form of money – yet it doesn’t care about acquiring wealth merely for the sake of being wealthy. It is not greedy; it sees money as a tool not an end-result. It is generous and willing to take risks.

People with strong 8s in their charts often make and lose fortunes more than once during their life.

The 8 doesn’t consider bankruptcy a reason to slow down or feel sorry for themselves – and they usually come out stronger and more success-oriented than before.

Some of the more recognizable traits of the 8 are drive, ambition, authority, efficiency, organization, management, discipline, and control. Individuals with the 8 in their core numbers are goal-oriented, focused, have good judgment, are discriminate, and practical. In short, the 8 is a realist.

Its closest relative is the 1, as both numbers are powerful, have strong leadership skills, and will not shy away from confrontation. While the 1 lacks diplomatic skills and an understanding of human nature (typical traits of the 2), the 8 does exhibit those abilities. This is perhaps the principal reason why the 8 tends to do well in business and authority roles – the military and law enforcement also attract many 8s.

When the 8 appears in your personality profile chart, it indicates the presence of the character traits mentioned earlier as well as the potential to be successful and prosperous. Hence, the reason so many people hope to manipulate their charts by adding one or more 8s.

While the 8 carries enticing gifts, its energy needs to be supported by other numbers for it to flourish. The 4 helps keep an eye on the all-important details, and the 9 keeps the 8 in touch with their humanity.

Be careful what you ask for.

If you decide to change your name to add one or more 8s to your profile, the rest of your chart must be able to support this strong force. If the 8 is out of balance, you may inherit more of its negative attributes, like frustration, dissatisfaction, anger, aggression, greed, intolerance, hate… and insomnia.

A higher-than-average percentage of 8s find their way into the top echelons of society, but you will also find a disproportionate number of 8s among the homeless.

If the 8 appears in your cycles – especially your Essence cycle – it carries an increase in energy and focus, a newfound sense of motivation, and enhanced self-confidence. The shape of the 8 shows balance, but it also reveals confidence, as it looks you right in the eye. A constructive 8 is honest to a fault, generous, and forgiving. They can be physically imposing or athletic and tend to excel in sports requiring strength and endurance.

Most 8s are not particularly romantic in the traditional sense, as they prefer a more practical and straight-forward approach. Still, they are loving and more than carry their weight in relationships.

As with all single-digit numbers, the 8 has a positive and a negative side.

One mystery of Numerology is that there is a small number of people who, from an early age on and for no discernible reason, seem to turn the opposite direction of what their charts indicate. “Seem” is the keyword here. This phenomenon is found with all numbers, but it appears to affect 8s more than others. There are quite a few people whose charts are dominated by 8s that become priests, missionaries, humanitarians, and so forth. However, even those selfless, loving individuals tend to be skilled in fundraising, money management, and authority.

Tinne/Teine

T stands for Tinne, or Teine, the Holly tree. This evergreen plant is connected to immortality, unity, courage, and the stability of hearth and home. Pronounced chihnn-uh by the Celts, the wood of the Holly was often used in the construction of weapons, and is known as a plant of warriors and protectors.

In the pre-Christian British Isles, the Holly was often associated with protection–planting a hedge around your home would keep malevolent spirits out, thanks in no small part to the sharp spikes on the leaves. In Celtic myth, the concept of the Holly King and the Oak King symbolizes the changing of the seasons, and the transition of the earth from the growing time to the dying season.

When Christianity moved into the Celtic lands, the new religion associated the Holly plant with the story of Jesus. The poky spikes on the leaves represent the crown of thorns worn by Jesus on the cross, and the bright red berries symbolize his blood.

Life can bring numerous changes, and people must understand and know how to adapt well without letting their feelings come in the way. Be it a change in the romantic relationship or business problems. One needs to adapt to the change instantly, instead of allowing their emotions to bring any harm.

So, although you might not win the battle, you won’t lose as you have learned how to have proper control over your emotions.

Waves

Rune of Movement

This is a rune that means good and bad just depending. Connected to the deep mystery’s of life that we at times can get into a stillness and if we don’t awaken from that stillness the waves of the water will imprison us and trap us in our own sabotage. But if we let the waves carry us along its own current we can find the deep answers to the mysteries we seek.

Nion/Nin

N is for Nion, sometimes called Nuin, which is connected to the Ash tree. Ash is one of three trees which were sacred to the Druids (Ash, Oak and Thorn), and connects the inner self to the outer worlds. This is a symbol of connections and creativity, and transitions between the worlds.

In Norse legend, Yggdrasil, the World Tree, is an Ash. Its roots grew down far into the Underworld, and its branches reached all the way up into the heavens. Odin hung himself from the tree for nine days as a sacrifice. Ash also features prominently in the Irish myth cycles, and is often depicted growing beside a well or pool of wisdom.

Whatever the reason for discord between you, it is time to lay down your arms.
Dispel the inflexible demands and fears of the Mind so that you may reunite in the Heart.

If you have grasped, let go.

The numbers 1-9 are very important to the science of Numerology. The energy and meaning of each of these numbers is different, so whether we see them in our Numerology charts or wonder why they keep reappearing in our lives, it’s important to know what they mean so we can understand the messages they are sending us. The number 9, the very last of these numbers, has been on a long journey, and now shines its light of love and divine wisdom into the world.

What is the definition of 9 in Numerology?

The energy of the number 9 represents completion, but not finality. Think of it more in a cyclical sense; it’s about the ending of one cycle and the potential it creates for another cycle to begin. The 9 in Numerology acts as an usher in this process of transition or transformation, guiding and empowering us with its wisdom. It absorbs answers from a spiritual source, then delivers them to us in the real world.

This number is a humanitarian at heart. It is compassionate, kind, and intent on putting its efforts toward creating the greatest good. The 9 in Numerology has gone through its fair share of hardship and is wiser, stronger, and more aware as a result. These first-hand experiences make it especially understanding of others who are struggling and willing to provide valuable support.

I. The meaning of the Three of Wands Shadowscapes Tarot

This is the bridge that reaches the edge of the world. The lower steps below tempt those who are curious and brave to go there and embark on a dangerous journey. It bent across the sky but then did not go much further. She stood on the borderline and hesitated, and wondered where she was going. The dazzling sunlight overhead made her squint, radiating beneath the shimmering bands of light that stretched along the river, reflecting on the hill in the distance below. Like a crystal with endless energy, slowly rising, it brought with itself the eternal light like all the potential she had, waiting for her from deep within, with every breath, every moment that contains the ability that either discourages or encourages us. Be aware of the hidden potential in all things.

She looked at the wands of the travelers who had first arrived. It could also be that from this position they turn away and leave, just like a threat to what happens to the next ones. She hesitated for a moment, did not look down, and then stepped into the indeterminate place. She felt the strong rocks and clay beneath her feet, then realized the bridge was gradually perfected from the steps and dreams of others. She took a breath and then began to take the first step – just like that, step by step, the bridge accordingly grew below her feet.

Through this, the message that Three of Wands wants to send you is to explore, search for new things, discover and expand to new horizons. Let’s broadcast your vision in all situations and clearly show your leadership.

Norse Runes: Viking Runes, Norse Symbols & Much More to Know!

Archaeology played a big role in making the human race aware of the civilizations from the ancient era. It is now clear that those centuries-old civilizations (like Mayan, Egyptian, and Norse) used unique communicating language in the form of specific Norse runes and carved images on the cave walls.

All or most of these civilizations used these unique methods of communication for thousands of years. They created their own mythologies and holy scripts to promote their culture and rituals to the other parts of the world.

Among all those mythologies and holy scripts, Norse mythology is the one that brings along some exciting and thrilling stories. In fact, there exists a lot of evidence to prove their beliefs and facts in similar regard.

The warriors of this civilization, known as Norse Vikings, used to communicate via Norse Rune stones ( stones carved with random signs and artwork). The Viking runes were their way of expressing feelings, specific events and also the war signs. If you are interested in this aspect of history, then read ahead to gain all the essential information about the Viking runes.

The Viking Runes

The Norse culture today is popular for the way they passed down the stories to the next generation. The culture used oral interpretations rather than writing tales. Old Norse is popular as the Viking’s speaking language. People used it for passing sagas and also some other stories to the children.

Before accepting the Latin alphabet, runes letters were presented in the alphabetic form known as runic alphabets. Many used them for writing indifferent Germanic languages during that time.

People used the Viking runes to describe things and places, and mystical courses of future events. However, they usually used them for protection. People use some of the Norse symbols commonly for love, health, seed, tides and even the weather. In contrast, some people also use Viking runes for abortion, cursing, birth and even death.

Among all the reasons for using Viking runes, the most basic one was to attract good fortune. The Vikings used the runes for more than 2000 years. They usually carved them into cups, amulets and the ship’s bows. These runes were invented by the northern European to present specific things like the force of nature. During those times, the people believed they could have power the weather by having control over the weather runes of Viking.

B – Beith/Beth

Beith, or Beth, corresponds to the letter B in the alphabet, and is associated with the Birch tree. When this symbol is used, it is representative of new beginnings, change, release, and rebirth. In some traditions, it also has connections with purification.

Birch trees are hardy. They’ll grow just about anywhere, including on bare soil. Because they tend to grow in clusters, what may be just one or two seedlings now can be practically an entire forest in a few decades. In addition to being a sturdy sort of tree, the Birch is useful. In days gone by, it was used for infants’ cradles, and is still harvested today to make cabinets and furniture.

From a magical perspective, there are a number of uses for Birch. The branches are traditionally incorporated into the construction of a besom, and are used for the bristles. Use the white outer bark in ritual in place of paper or parchment–just be sure you only harvest the bark from a fallen Birch tree, not a living one. Ancient herbalists discovered that various parts of this tree can be used for medicinal purposes. Bark was once brewed into a tea to fight fevers, and the leaves were used alternately as a laxative and a diuretic, depending on how they were prepared.

We are being held in the Two of Cups; others have not yet appeared, and we must imagine other people like what we know about ourselves. The only relevant point for ordinary lovers has not yet formed in the virgin heart that is the family. This is the period where the whole legend of empathetic souls is born.
