I have been working with Runes lately and felt called today to pull a Rune to share as an overall theme of the times as of late. Inguz is what popped up into my fingers. In, the Hero God is the Rune of fertility and new beginnings. Here is a little of what it says…
"Drawing this Rune may mark a time of joyful deliverance, of new life, a new path. A Rune of great power, receiving it means that you now have the strength to achieve completion, resolution, from which comes a new beginning."
“As you resolve and clear away the old, you will experience a release from tension and uncertainty.
You may be required to free yourself from a rut, habit or relationship; from some deep cultural or behavioral pattern… The time of birth is always a critical one. Movement can involve danger, and yet movement that is timely leads out of danger.”
-Ralph H. Blum
This seems to hit the nail right on the head! So far this year has been a lot about big life shifts. Shadows that lurk in the corners are coming right up the the surface to be dealt with. If you feel as though you have been walking through the fire, you are not alone! Pay attention to all details of life, even the most subtle. What things are we hanging onto that don’t serve us anymore? What attachments and ideas of ourselves can we let go of, so that there is more space for a deeper understanding of our authentic Selves. How can we create more room for truth, beauty, peace, and above all LOVE? It is a time for death and rebirth…. When things get uncomfortable, just open your arms and say out loud, HOW FASCINATING!! Embrace the fire, it is here as an ally to help you burn up those things you no longer need, so that a new more vibrant and healthy being can be reborn!
^There it is! Inguz!
