Movement/Ehwaz.


Movement.
First Steps.

As life assumes the forward facing, the gears are not set for racing
They are for temperate pacing, used well for an easy spacing
A single speed is fine for cruising, not eternal just occasional using
For long straight and boring trips, even sea or air ships, as the scenery just slips.


Martialed to the marching tune, for long hauls that need to get there soon
Now the troupe is on the move, lets set the tune to a better groove
Lets learn to walk or saunter stroll or rest, to enjoy our very best
Life is not a trial or contest, time to replenish the inner zest.


Stone Meaning.


Ehwaz is a Rune of transit, transition and movement; of physical shifts, new dwelling places, new attitudes or new life. It also signifies movement in the sense of improving or bettering any situation.


There is about this Rune a sense of gradual development and steady progress, with the accompanying notion of slow growth through numerous shifts and changes. This could apply to the growth of a business or to the development of an idea. A relationship may have to undergo changes if it is to maintain growth and life. Moral effort are called for when you draw Ehwaz, another of the Cycle Runes. Let it be said this way: 'As I cultivate my own nature, all else follows'.


This Runes symbol is the horse, and it signifies the inseparable bond between horse and rider. Bronze Age artifacts show a horse drawing the sun across the sky. Here, this Rune is saying, you have progressed far enough to feel a measure of safety in your position. It is time to turn again and face the future reassured, prepared to share the good fortune that comes. The sharing is significant since it relates to the sun's power to foster life and illuminate all things with it's light.


A Four Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Tyr.


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


Water:


There are three runes in this group, they are symbolic of movement and with the element water. They can indicate flow if harmoniously supported by the other stones. Fluidity and steady progress, if negatively aspected diversion, disruption and rushing headlong.


The flow of life and its twists and turns are best handled in a steady stream and are a headlong rush of rapid changes dips and troughs.


Summary.


A good reading of not gearing up for the unknown but just being ready for a better outcome. After the dip in the trend yesterday forcing a push back it now requires a relaxing to ride the trend.

Progress is personal and is more about the little wins than any big targets being bagged, but with surprises in the bag it might be just how high is your game. A division is all about sorting ans segregating rather than any real divorce here. Taking a responsive stance is a good way to deal with the spring back. Lacking a clear understanding will produce surprises and the Joy at the end is the key to the outcome.

Advances cover all the basic needs, diversity is the action to cover the deeds. Protection is challenged and not broken, standing ready is attentions token. Lack of information is not a harm, as the outcome comes complete with charm.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


Separation/Uruz.

Separation.
Divided Forces.

Like taking the white from the yolk, its tricky and no joke
Now the boiler we must stoke, not end just a pig in a poke
Getting up the steam, shooting the rapids pushing the stream
Captain at the wheel, master of the trade winds deal.


Scout out on the trail, where knowledge will save or fail
Heading for the halfway camp, knowing beaming like a night lamp
Carry the lay of the land, return the missing from the planned
Fill the gaps of each others knowing, to keep it growing.


Stone Meaning.


This stone symbolises separations, divisions and partings. On one level this could signify the parting of the ways or it can also emphasise the canceling out of opposites. The equal and opposite action and re-action.


The questioner is likely being asked to let things be and to not interfere with the cosmic destiny of the present circumstances, knowing when not to take action or not rising to the devils goads to take the reigns is a skill beyond measure.


Separation calls for the letting go of ones own will and letting the higher self take you the best route for your balanced growth.


The inheritance of this action is to reap what you have sown. Just material benefits, rewards or deserts will be forthcoming in the fullness of time.


Learning to let go and ride the cosmic winds of your destiny takes greater courage than the average person has.


Two Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Challenge.


Protection/Algiz.


Protection.
Holding Defences.

A shield is the armour that meets the strike
Armour has a price to pay on the long hike
To cover every inch of the body is possible
Being fleet of foot in armour is just impossible.


A vigil of mind is set to keep safe, all that cost dear
To value and preserve, without a shadow of fear
This is the discipline or the script for the day
So treading carefully, nothing is lost along the way.


Stone Meaning.


Control of the emotions is at issue here. During times of transition, shifts in life course and accelerated self-change, it is important not to collapse yourself into your emotions - the highs as well as the lows. New opportunities and challenges are typical of this Rune. And with them may come trespasses and unwanted influences.


Algiz serves as a mirror for the Spiritual Warrior, the one whose battle is always with the self. The protection of the Warrior is like the warning rustle of the sedge grass or like the curved horns of the Elk, for both serve to keep open space around you. Remain mindful that timely action and correct conduct are the only true protection. If you find yourself feeling pain, observe the pain, stay with it. Don't try to pull down the veil and escape from life by denying what is happening. You will progress; knowing that is your protection.


Two Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


Action.


The Warrior (Rev)/Teiwaz.


The Warrior.
Defensive Maneuvers.

A man at odds with the orders, not confined by the borders, for the elite hoarders
Resolving the issues of the day, is the finest action to be taken on the way so they say
Time to surrender to the will of the times, no more charging across demarcation lines
When the will is at odds with the need, its time to acquiesce and attend the deed.


To surrender to the universal will, is just acceptance no enemy that we need to kill
Letting go is the hardest task, its the last defenses behind the players mask
When the fight is gone, life takes over when the struggle has all been done
Once this simple choice has been made, the inner purpose will be bade.


Stone Meaning.


The adverse being at odds with himself. Watches victory slip from their hands.


The petty drives of the ego, the selfish needs of the few. The conflict of self.


Conscious and unconscious conflict. All the signs of unrest and discontent.


The conscious drive needs to be brought into alignment with the unconscious purpose, as it is the most honest part of the being, in most people.

Sacrifice.


Initiation (Rev)/Perth.


Initiation.
Broken Lines.

Clouded and shrouded with befuddled mind, out of the knowing not so kind
Stand well within the inner strength, fixed duration's of unknown length
Kept out of the knowing loop, if not in the boiling then in the soup
Lost the minutes and missed the brief, no memo or catchup or relief.


Obligations state work from the blind, it isn't funny nor is it kind
Use every advantage that you find, keep an open and focused mind
Gain the insights from this test, and the inner growing is the best
Self realisation has a cowl, that initiates wisdom like the owl.


Stone Meaning.


A hierarchic or mystery rune, Perth points to that which is beyond our frail manipulative powers. This Rune is on the side of heaven, the Unknowable, and has associations with the Phoenix, that mystical bird which consumes itself in the fire and then arises from its own ashes. It's ways are secret and hidden.


Powerful forces of change are at work here. Yet what is achieved is not easily or readily shared. After all, becoming whole, the means of it is a profound secret.


On the side of the earthly or mundane, there may well be surprises; unexpected gains are not unlikely. On the side of human nature, this Rune is symbolised by the flight of the eagle. Soaring flight, free from entanglement, lifting yourself above the endless ebb and flow of ordinary life to acquire broader vision - all this is indicated here. This is the Rune of questing.


Another of the Cycle runes, Perth is concerned with the deepest stratum of being, with the bedrock on which your destiny is founded. Nothing external matters here, except as it shows you its inner reflection. For some, drawing Perth means experiencing a psychic death. If need be, let go of everything, no exceptions, no exclusions. Nothing less than renewal of the Spirit is at stake.


Three Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.

The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


New Situation.


Joy/Wunjo.


Joy.
Fulfilling Expectations.

Elation and all its stages, as the feelings swell to ecstatic rages
The expanse of feeling to their edge, takes elevation to the next ledge
Filled with splendour or with awe, by all that’s felt by more than saw
Raises awareness to its best, of all the feeling in hopes great chest.


Accomplished, arrived, achieved and more, felt right to our very core
Both feet now back on ground, after elevation soared to new found
A settling in a sense of win, release from burden beyond all spin
To fulfil the faith that others invest, raises us to our very best.


Stone Meaning.


Like a fruit bearing branch is a welcome find to the hungry traveler. The term of travail is ended and you have come to yourself in some regard. The shift that was due has occurred and now you can freely receive Wunjo's blessings, whether they be in material gain, in your emotional life or in a heightened sense and awareness of your own well - being.


This is an alchemical moment in which understanding is transmuted from knowledge. The knowledge itself was a necessary but not sufficient condition; now you can rejoice, having been carried across the gap by the Will of Heaven.


Joyousness accompanies new energy, energy blocked before now. Light pierces the clouds and touches the waters just as something lovely emerges from the depths: the soul is illuminated from within, at the meeting place of Heaven and Earth, the meeting of the waters.


There is new clarity which may call for you to renounce existing plans, ambitions, goals. It is proper and timely for you to do so, for Wunjo is a Rune of Restoration, of the self properly aligned to the Self.


Two Group Stone:


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Summary.


After the swing to the negative this one is all back on form, it has a distinct inclination to the personal and the global aiding and abetting the process. A real indication of relaxing to proceed even going with the flow and staying focused and ready to respond.

Progress is personal and the direction may not be in the expected range. A separation is not included here and may even be solo but not in every situation. The environment is safe and the challenge is held in place. Action demands a less aggressive stance and not so defensive. Surprises are the sacrifice to no introduction but nothing bad here some even very good. Joy is an uplifting of feelings associated with improvements and even advances.

Motivation is sitting high, segregation is a temporary try. Safe in any exchanges, standing down fits the ranges. Surprises light up the way, and even make the day.


Short:


From static to up to play, divergence will split the way. Safe in the charm of the dance, reducing the stance to enhance. Surprises and winging it are in the air, elevated feeling of good care.


Clipped:


Motivation segregates secure numbers surprising satisfaction.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has four upright and two reversed stones in the presentation with a parity of four even and two odd numbered stones in the undercurrents. This swing back to the recent trend of 8/4 two thirds positive polar inclination after yesterdays glitch in momentum building is normal in an imperfect world where good and bad days exist in the same daily bag, even a push back brings purpose like the unwelcome forest fire. The aftermath is a devastation and yet the spring back will bring a wild abundance after the dormant buried seeds get a ground heat boost to over activating the germination drive like a good natural dropped spoor can do to seeds.

There are eight groups present five of them are multiples giving a strong single hand of a full house of types a two of a kind and a three of a kind. A split exists in the numbers three twos and two threes giving three threes a charm of charms in effect. If the pot or stakes are high then a single strong hand right out of the negative spring back is all in on the full house rather than hedging the bets. The full houses that can also make up a split hand will double the cover but this is a positive spread. So a single strong full house has Cycle and Tyr as the pair showing focus and determination are paired fro the resistant stance set yesterday. The charm is led by Heimdalls preparation, Mystics revelation so finding out and knowing or growing is enhanced, with Protection as a shield for the charm a very strong single hand from a negative stance yesterday quite a bounce back.

Core Problems.

Single Stone.


Present.


Constraint/Nauthiz.


Constraint.
Lacking Leeway.

Well we’ll be bound by ties from the old
If we kowtow instead of being just bold
Like handcuffs to bind and dominate the play
Some outdated things should just fade away.


No Island like these can manage all on their own
There are things to exchange and others grown
History has lessons that we need to learn better from
No place to go to without knowing from where do we come.


Stone Meaning.


The necessity of dealing with sever constraint is the lesson of Nauthiz. The positive aspects of this Rune represent the limitations we directly cause ourselves. Its negative side attracts limitations from those around us. Both can be equally difficult to handle.


The role of Nauthiz is to identify our 'shadow', our dark or repressed side, areas where growth has been stunted, resulting in weaknesses that we project onto others. Don't take this world personally, this Rune is saying. Work with the shadow, examine inside you what magnetises misfortune into your life. When at last you can look on Nauthiz with a smile, you will recognise the troubles, denials and setbacks of life as your teachers, guides and allies.


The need for restraint is unquestionable here. Drawing this Rune indicates that there will be holdups, reasons to reconsider your plans carefully. There is work to be done on your self. So take it on with good will and show perseverance.


This is a time to pay of old debts, to restore, if not harmony, at least balance. So mend, restore, redress; when fishermen cant go to sea they repair nets. Let the constraints of this time serve you in righting your relationship to your self. Be mindful that rectification comes before progress. And once again consider the uses of adversity.


Two Group Stone:

The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Summary.


Odd when the universal still aids the flow even if it is slowed down by resistance except where the push back is a maturation process. After the full positive swing of late it is hard to crash against the wall of the fall and to adjust from a stride to a crawl.

A set of ties hold obligation to the task here from the personal stone. The Gateway is the goal in mind and under pressure it is no more than the next notch. The universe is the partner to personal growth here. The movement is steady and applied, there is a reduction from harvest in sacrifice so nominals are the order like the steps taken forward in adversity. This is the test of metal in the forge of the moment of adversity.

Held and yet not fully contained, held back but not restrained. Headings always stay the same, one step at a time the name of this game. The universal will strengthens the reed, will grows from this seed. Discard the need to rush and run, adversity is good but not much fun.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


Gateway/Thurisaz.


Gateway.
New Extention.

Not all doorways lead to where we wish, some are just not a palatable dish
The cul-de-sacs and dead ends, are the ones that will drive us round the worst bends
All openings on the same levels, take different angles plains routes and bevels
Know the doorway you need to select, and whether its just an exit or elect.


When making an exit when you need, take the cut that will help make the lead
As you look for the short way round, non of these in life can easy be found
There is no other way from ‘A’ to ‘B’, you can only get there when the route you see
Secret passages are things of the past, their appeal and need was never going to last.


Stone Meaning.


With gateway for it's symbol, this Rune indicates that there is work to be done both inside and outside yourself. The gateway is the frontier between Heaven and the mundane. Arriving here is a recognition of your readiness to contact the numerous, the Divine, to illuminate your experience so that it's meaning shines clearly through it's form.


Thurisaz is a Rune of non-action. Thus, the gateway is not to be approached and passed through without contemplation. Here you are being confronted with a true reflection of what is hidden within yourself, what must be exposed and examined before successful action can be undertaken. This Rune strengthens your ability to wait. Now is not a time to make decisions. Deep transformational forces are at work in this next-to-last of the Cycle Runes.


Visualize yourself standing before a gateway on a hilltop. Your entire life stretches out behind you and below. Before you step through, pause and review the past: the learning and the joys, the victories and the sorrows - everything it took to bring you here. Observe it all, bless it all, release it all. For in letting go of the past you reclaim your power.


Step through the gateway now.

Challenge.


Partnership/Gebo.


Partnership.
Sharing Loads.

For a union that can work as a team, either coasting or sauntering or full steam
In the unstated mutual knowing, no need for catchup just keep showing
Each on the mark with the spark, on their task doing their thing to get that bling
There is no divvy when we just share, not just the risks the dare of winners glare.


Each carries the team so if one falls, we brace the deficit as the duty calls
When all in we know the play, there might be nought for that rainy day
As we put more in than we take, we know its all for the greater sake
When one is down we rally round, by this bond we will all be bound.


Stone Meaning.


The strength of Partnership is in union, that is to say two halves that make up a distinct whole, the old adage the sum of the parts is greater than the whole best sums up this stone.


Partnership signifies the gift of freedom out of which all other gifts flow.


For the spiritual person or disciple this stone will indicate either a congregation of like minds and goals or a new understanding is /will /was achieved.


This stone is similar to the Charioteer who struggles to balance the team of horses into a well balanced unit, except with Partnership there should be a willing and mutual union.

For long straight and boring trips, even sea or air ships, as the scenery just slips.


Martialed to the marching tune, for long hauls that need to get there soon
Now the troupe is on the move, lets set the tune to a better groove
Lets learn to walk or saunter stroll or rest, to enjoy our very best
Life is not a trial or contest, time to replenish the inner zest.


Stone Meaning.


Ehwaz is a Rune of transit, transition and movement; of physical shifts, new dwelling places, new attitudes or new life. It also signifies movement in the sense of improving or bettering any situation.


There is about this Rune a sense of gradual development and steady progress, with the accompanying notion of slow growth through numerous shifts and changes. This could apply to the growth of a business or to the development of an idea. A relationship may have to undergo changes if it is to maintain growth and life. Moral effort are called for when you draw Ehwaz, another of the Cycle Runes. Let it be said this way: 'As I cultivate my own nature, all else follows'.

Sacrifice.


Harvest (Rev NRM)/Jera.

Harvest.
Final Returns.

When reverse is diminish, for a start penalty not too the finish
Its a setback, from the pot black, dealt from the middle of the stack
Less than was expected, not enough for dejected, just the selected
So the handicap of fate, not delivered on the winners plate, is our start fate.


The lot we drew, is enough to get through, the short runway will do
We leave the terminal, to taxi in the wake thermal, after the cure all
From the terminal to the runway, is not done in a fun away day
The road is full, as we all have to pull, two years to the day, when we lift away.


Stone Meaning.


A Rune of beneficial outcomes, Jera applies to any activity or endeavour to which you are committed. Be aware, however, that no quick results can be expected. A span of time is always involved; hence the key words 'one year', symbolising a full cycle before the reaping, the harvest or deliverance.


You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labour has a long season, a long coming to term, Jera offers encouragement of success. Know that the outcome is in the keeping of Providence and continue to persevere.


Remember the old story about the farmer who was so eager to assist his crops that he went out at night and tugged on the new shoots. There is no way to push the river; equally, you cannot hasten the harvest. Be mindful that patience is essential for the recognition and acceptance of your own process which, in its season, leads to the harvest of the self.


You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labour has a long season, a long coming to term, Jera offers encouragement.

Rectify:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


New Situation.


The Warrior/Teiwaz.


The Warrior.
Old Guard.

Capable practiced and assured, formed and tempered from strife endured
To martial to the bugle’s call, braving hostile fire where the others fall
Knowing who it is that has your back, to know you are not on your jack
Not keeping any troubles in your sack, never picking on what others lack.


Taking the test of time to forge the metal, finding a spring in your fettle
Respecting memory in the poppy petal, overbearing numbers never settle
To toe the line and complete the march, higher feelings just have to parch
Quenching the must of need in the now, unbeaten when learning how.


Stone Meaning.


This is the symbol of the Spiritual Warrior. Always the battle for the Spiritual Warrior is with the self. Funding a will through action yet unattached to outcomes, able to be radically alone, remaining mindful that all you can really do is stay out of your own way and let the will of Heaven flow through you - these are among the hallmarks of the Spiritual warrior.


Embodied in this Rune is the energy of discrimination, the sword like quality that enables you to cut away the old, the dead the extraneous. And yet, with Teiwaz comes certain knowledge that the universe always has the first move. Patience is the virtue of this Rune, and it recalls the words of St Augustine that the reward of patience is patience.


Here, you are asked to look within, to delve down to the foundations of your life it's self. Only in so doing can you hope to deal with the deepest needs of your nature and to tap into your most profound resources. The moulding of character is at issue when Teiwaz appears in your spread.


Associated with this Rune are the sun. masculine energy, the active principle. The urge toward conquests prominent here, especially self conquest, which is a life long pursuit and calls for awareness, single-mindedness and the willingness to undergo your passage with compassion and in total trust.


In issues of relationship, devotion to a cause, an idea or a path of conduct, the warrior Rune counsels perseverance, although the kind of perseverance required is patience.


Teiwaz is a Rune of courage and dedication. In ancient times it was this glyph that warriors painted on their shields before battle. Now, the same symbol strengthens your resolve in the struggle of Self with Self.


Two Group Stone:


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Summary.


The stand off looks like being in neutral here except for the drift from the mitigated stone. The overall drift is an inch by inch progress for the personal and the global just the wind in its face. This is not a time to let the wind win, as progress still requires movement.

Being held by the wind in the face the constraint is not all pervasive and more than a little wriggle room is available but it does require will application and dedication of purpose. The Gateway that is a departure is in the target scope of the overview. Old relationships are under review and some are not worth reviving here. Time to let the challenge sweep the chaff. Movement is using that inch by inch wriggle room with good effect as no flow is available. Harvest reversed is a reduction even a shedding process in action and some will be a sacrifice no easy but necessary. The warrior is the metal tested after the travail, not battle hardened but campaign formed.

Held by the gentle bind, openings leave a lot behind. Two satellites are well apart, inertia breaks at the start. Some things are best left behind, bringing competence for peace of mind.


Short:


Bound by obligations ties, take the opportunity that never lies, many hands and then time flies, steady motion then applies. Pay the gate and forget don’t say sorry, a steady guard need never worry.


Clipped:


Bindings open related drives reducing fear.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has five upright and a single mitigated reversed stone in the presentation with a mirrored parity of five odd numbered stones and a single even numbered stone in the undercurrents. The 6/6 polarity is a reset to neutral over the last few days positive inclination, the mitigated stone gives the edge to the presentation to hold the ground and to inch forward. On the face of things it looks as though it should all be plain sailing but the potential to disrupt is just beneath the surface this only indicates potential in a stalemate so swings and roundabouts affect the global stance as the personal brings charm to inch ahead.

There are all nine groups present five of them are multiple groups with a pair of hands one personal the charm of Cycle focus attention and preparedness are its base. The quad in the global is a strong tetrahedron with Tyr in pinnacle position bringing a bold stance against strong odds good for holding ground but not for advances. The base triangle is formed from Freyr indicating new, Mystic bringing revelations, insights and understanding out of Freyr’s territory as Heimdall instructs preparation. Cycle here is in the position of charm over force and will make inroads rather than cut swathes.

Possessions (Rev)/Fehu.


Possessions.
Clearing Clutter.

Time to let go that which holds us back, the tune is calling us to the track
The piper leads the courage of men, into battle now as then, by the ken
All is left that we cannot carry, we wait for those that tarry as they harry
We carry the means to provide, not all the worldly goods six lanes wide.


Travel light, bright, hale and hearty, carry only all the means to start a party
Beg borrow, never steal or lift, that sort of thing gets short shrift
The right good life party is the one to aid, the burgomaster never has paid
So bring a bottle and a friend, this is the party that will never end.


Stone Meaning.


Fehu is a Rune of fulfillment: ambition satisfaction, love fulfilled, rewards received. It promises nourishment, from the most worldly to the most sacred and Divine. Moreover, if the ancient hermetic principle 'As above so below' is true, then we are also here to nourish God.


This Rune calls for a deep probing of the meaning of profit and gain in your life. Look with care to know whether it is wealth and possessions you require for your well-being, or rather self - rule and the growth of a will.


Another concern of Fehu is conserving what has already been gained. It urges vigilance and continual mindfulness, especially in times of good fortune, for it is then that we are likely to collapse ourselves into our success on the one hand, or to behave recklessly on the other. Enjoy your good fortune and remember to share it; the mark of the well nourished self is the willingness and ability to nourish others.


Two Group Stone:


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Rectify:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


Summary.


This reading still gives the benefit to the personal even though the stone in the single slot is reversed. So no loss in the reduction then. The polarity is still more positive and the groups follow a geometric trend.

The possessions in the personal are reversed and this is in keeping with travelling light. An impulse to move must be tempered against impatience needing to just do something in the breaks. An advance is being challenged and that is more about direction than achievement. Separation is reversed and so several lines or routes are available. The Journey is coming to that time and as Flow indicates its about getting up to speed and keeping the points ticking over.

Lighten the load and ready the pack, nearly time and a loss is a lack. Slow progress is the order of the day, as several paths follow the same ways. The journey has reached it departure time, and the momentum will carry forwards fine.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


Movement/Ehwaz.


Movement.
Shaking Loose.

As life assumes the forward facing, the gears are not set for racing
They are for temperate pacing, used well for an easy spacing
A single speed is fine for cruising, not eternal just occasional using
For long straight and boring trips, even sea or air ships, as the scenery just slips.


Martialed to the marching tune, for long hauls that need to get there soon
Now the troupe is on the move, lets set the tune to a better groove
Lets learn to walk or saunter stroll or rest, to enjoy our very best
Life is not a trial or contest, time to replenish the inner zest.


Stone Meaning.


Ehwaz is a Rune of transit, transition and movement; of physical shifts, new dwelling places, new attitudes or new life. It also signifies movement in the sense of improving or bettering any situation.


There is about this Rune a sense of gradual development and steady progress, with the accompanying notion of slow growth through numerous shifts and changes. This could apply to the growth of a business or to the development of an idea. A relationship may have to undergo changes if it is to maintain growth and life. Moral effort are called for when you draw Ehwaz, another of the Cycle Runes. Let it be said this way: 'As I cultivate my own nature, all else follows'.


This Runes symbol is the horse, and it signifies the inseparable bond between horse and rider. Bronze Age artifacts show a horse drawing the sun across the sky. Here, this Rune is saying, you have progressed far enough to feel a measure of safety in your position. It is time to turn again and face the future reassured, prepared to share the good fortune that comes. The sharing is significant since it relates to the sun's power to foster life and illuminate all things with it's light.


A Four Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Tyr.


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


Water:


There are three runes in this group, they are symbolic of movement and with the element water. They can indicate flow if harmoniously supported by the other stones. Fluidity and steady progress, if negatively aspected diversion, disruption and rushing headlong.


The flow of life and its twists and turns are best handled in a steady stream and are a headlong rush of rapid changes dips and troughs.


Challenge.


Breakthrough (Rev NRM)/Dagaz.

Breakthrough.
Small Successes.

Glass ceiling broke, bragging rights not yet spoke, not taking a poke
No reveling in others eating our dust, just aiding the need as it must
New records have now been set, the the best is still to come yet
Terrain unknown and virgin tread, from the land comes the daily bread.


Respect the records that were once set, new challengers will come to place their bet
To try their best to beat the best, will still leave most in the ranks of the rest
As they step up to the plate, to give their all to test fate, some fail at the gate
Exceeding all that was once the top line, is the game that lasts to the end of time.


Stone Meaning.


Here is the final Rune belonging to the Cycle of Initiation. Drawing Dagaz can signal a major shift or breakthrough in the process of self change, a turn. For some, the transformation in attitude - a 180-degree turn. For some the transition is so radical that they no longer continue to live the ordinary life in the ordinary way.


Because the timing is right, the outcome is assured although not from the present vantage point, predictable. In each life there comes at least one moment which, if recognised and seized, transforms the course of that life forever. Rely, therefore, on radical trust , even though the moment may call for you to leap, empty-handed, into the void. With this Rune your Warrior nature reveals itself.


If Dagaz is followed by the Blank Rune, the magnitude of the transformation might be so total as to portend a death, the successful conclusion of your passage.


A major period of achievement and prosperity is often introduced by this Rune. The darkness is behind you; daylight has come. However, as always, you are reminded not to collapse yourself into the future or to behave recklessly in your new situation. Considerable hard work can be involved in a time of transformation. Undertake to do it joyfully.

Action.


Separation (Rev)/Uruz.

Separation.
Slight Reserve.

Time and distance keep some apart, even language can play its part
Mistimed being early or too late, are some of the other twists of fate
Social customs are also barriers, used to distance by the harriers
A tool from the controllers kit, using the instances that seem to fit.


Solitary cells and other hell’s or at least so the fable tells
Apart but not out of touch, that would be far too much
As each one passes through the turnstiles, the place for single files
One road low and the other high, both are paced no way to fly.


Stone Meaning.


Separations (Othila) reversed state is an odd one in that we may not be alone or on our own, more in the crowd but not feeling part of the herd. The whole idea of being sent to ‘Coventry’ is the summation of the worst aspect of this stone.


Being separated by social division or standing, not being privileged, ostracised or even shunned. Having been reduced in the eyes of those in authority.


An enforced retreat either to take stock or to have some respite, even a chance to heal and recover from the trials and tribulations of the daily grind.


The spiritual warrior task in this present situation is to take stock, to remember the path that led to this moment, to recall the journey so far and to acknowledge the changes and sacrifices already made. To understand how far we have progressed and improved by the journey, the terrain, the challenges, the successes and the failures that brought us to this moment of realisation.


To evaluate ourselves and our development and to understand again the goal we wish to achieve and to realign ourselves with our purpose or evaluate that the goal has changed or is no longer necessary.

Sacrifice.


A Journey/Raido.

A Journey.
Making Moves.

On the eternal walk of life, as we steer a course far from strife
Keeping up with all the chat, no longer has an envelope hitting a mat
The mobile need for connection, is for catchup over protection
Knowing we are just at the end of a line, helps with feeling fine.


The line is long, and the connections strong, after a ring ring or a ding dong
To never need to feel alone or disconnected, was a byproduct not expected
The trip from first designs to present revisions, exceed the first limited versions
What was expressed in early song, would get a booby prize or a raspberry gong.


Stone Meaning.


This main concerned is with communication, with the atonement of something that has two sides, two elements, and with the ultimate reunion that comes at the end of the journey, when what is above and below are united and are again of one mind.


Inner worth mounts here, and at such a time you must remember that you are not intended to rely entirely upon your own power, but rather to ask what constitutes right action. Ask through prayer, through addressing your own knowing, the Witness Self, the teacher within. Not intent on movement, be content to wait; while you wait, keep on removing resistances. As the obstructions give way, all remorse arising from 'trying to make it happen' disappears.


The journey is toward self healing, self change and union. You are concerned here with unobstructed, perfect union. But the union of Heaven and Earth cannot be forced. Regulate any excesses in your life. Material advantages must not weigh heavily on this journey of the self toward the Self. Stand apart even from like minded others; the notion of strength in numbers does not apply, for this part of the journey cannot be shared.


Another of the Cycle Runes, Raido represents the soul's journey and has within it the element of joy, for the end is in sight. No longer burdened by what you've left behind, Heaven and Earth unite within you to support you on your way. A simple prayer for the soul's journey is:


I will to will Thy will.

New Situation.


Flow/Laguz.


Flow.
Direction Of Travel.

Where it starts out no one knows, nor what way it will proceed or even where it goes
The way they say is all in the day, that winds and turns throughout its fray
It trickles then meanders or may even gush, up to speeds that gives a rush
Blockages will be swept away, as all that force of volume holds its sway.


When the flow meanders by, giving time to stop replace and even shop or buy
Time trickles in a lazy dance, giving people that old catch up chance to dance
So when the course starts to speed, and most are sated by some fulfilled need
The watch and crew will stand to, knowing that replenished leaves lots still to do.


Stone Meaning.


Unseen powers are at work here, powers that nourish, shape and connect. The attributes of this Rune are water, fluidity, the ebb and flow of emotions, of vocations and relationships. Laguz supports your desire to immerse yourself in the experience of living without having to evaluate or understand. It speaks to the satisfaction of emotional needs, to the awakening of the intuitive or lunar side of your nature. For while the sun strives for differentiation, the moon draws us toward union and merging.


This Rune often signals a time for cleansing: for revaluing, reorganising, re-aligning. A Rune of deep knowing, Laguz may call you to study spiritual matters in readiness for self transformation. Success now lies in contacting your Intuitive Knowing, in attuning to your own rhythms. A Rune of the self relating rightly to the Self, Laguz signifies what alchemists called conjunction, or sacred marriage. In fairy tales, it is the end where the hero and heroine live happily ever after.

Summary.


A slight leaning back from yesterdays positive inclination but not enough to cause worry. A good indication of multiple choices some wins some gains and a lightening of the load along the way. A separation may just be in different seats on the bus, having to get the next taxi but no serious break here.

Property could well even just end up something forgotten, a skill not kept up to form or old fashioned property, carry only essentials is a good take to. Time for the off is the indication and its getting close, no adjoining seats or having to split the party is no big deal you can after all still txt even on the bus/taxi/train. You may not have the best seat or the view but it is not a hardship. Travel is not comfortable and the sacrifice of no buffet car is kinda tough to take but sacrifices have to be made. Getting up to speed is the idea for the landing to be landing on the run rather than taking a rest to get up to speed.

Leaving more than its comfortable to carry, frees up storage and is less of a tarry. Advances are slowed and take a toll, separation is not broken nor is it whole. The trip is a trial, and not by the mile, but landing well will bring on a smile.


Short:


Less to carry, and less to harry. Making ground, by multiple bound. Travel is getting under way, and the current follows the lay.


Clipped:


Relinquishing compulsion advances multiple outcome directives.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has three upright and three reversed stones one mitigated in the presentation with four even and two odd numbered stones in the undercurrents. This 7/5 split in the polarity is a notch down in the recent swing but the mitigated stone lessens the impact enough for it to be a negligible deficit here. As usual the strength is all in the groups.

There are seven groups present in the reading five of them are multiple groups. This set almost reflects the same polarity as yesterdays reading in as much as it nearly reflects the presentation and the undercurrent distribution. The match in the groups is hover more exact with two singular quads and the as above so below making a cube of union between the presentation and the undercurrent. The split hand of two four of a kinds not being used as a pair gives a third of a full house and a small pair for the fourth hand. Tyr brings a bold preparation to the base of the cube here for the global and the mind body soul of Cycle in the upper square of the cube is a focus of self in preparation. Mystic is the revelation charm that is core of the full house with Freyr adding new and fresh starts to the personal slot here. This leaves the final flow from Water in a small pair adding a direction and purpose to the cube and the full house.

Harvest/Jera.


The Harvest.
Compounded Interest.

To reap rewards or get your dues, washes away all the deprivation blues
Taking time to peruse the stock, that is normally stored behind a secure lock
Avoid having to discard the spoiled, its as bad as getting your shoes soiled
Collect the cream some baked or boiled, just deserts for which you’ve toiled.


Spoils make purées and for jams, that will fill the treats and garnish the hams
Nothing in the harvest is left to waste, that decision is the choice of haste
As quantity is the calculation for the stalls, let the scales land where fortune falls
Then discretion becomes the base of good taste, as quality luxuries become well laced.


Stone Meaning.


A Rune of beneficial outcomes, Jera applies to any activity or endeavour to which you are committed. Be aware, however, that no quick results can be expected. A span of time is always involved; hence the key words 'one year', symbolising a full cycle before the reaping, the harvest or deliverance.


You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labour has a long season, a long coming to term, Jera offers encouragement of success. Know that the outcome is in the keeping of Providence and continue to persevere.


Remember the old story about the farmer who was so eager to assist his crops that he went out at night and tugged on the new shoots. There is no way to push the river; equally, you cannot hasten the harvest. Be mindful that patience is essential for the recognition and acceptance of your own process which, in its season, leads to the harvest of the self.


You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labour has a long season, a long coming to term, Jera offers encouragement.


Three Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Rectify:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


Summary.


A good boost for the self here as the cube is being squared between the personal and the global. A steady stance in the polarity here gives the stable mates a positive boost here again Signal is indicating before an opening is presented so in preparation of harvest being a breakthrough of expectations it may well all be in the changes here. The reading is a near repeat of yesterdays but the changes are significant and the polarity is better spread here.

A harvest could just be for some pay day others a return on investment and still others it will be yet to come and just the promise to be. A breakthrough does indicate either a savings, or exceeding the expectations. Signs are all favourable and may well be last minute for the slow but for the prepared it will all be in the anticipation. A directional change is the flow being turned and even for some a tidal turn rather than a directional shift. Some sacrifice is all in the timing as rewards are assured and even exceeded or even just a tight squeeze to fit in. Growth is at maximum height and the filling out is under way as growth reaches up then fills out so the plant is made ready to flower for the seed.

A boost to the much needed, advances are expectation exceeded. Sings say that the way is clear, though direction needs to steer. The way forward is a tight space, as final extents find their place.

Breakthrough.
Making Ground.

Glass ceiling broke, bragging rights not yet spoke, not taking a poke
No reveling in others eating our dust, just aiding the need as it must
New records have now been set, as the best is still to come yet
Terrain unknown and virgin tread, from the land comes the daily bread.


Respect the records that were once set, new challengers will come to place their bet
To try their best to beat the best, will still leave most in the ranks of the rest
As they step up to the plate, to give their all to test fate, some fail at that gate
Exceeding all that was once the top line, is the game that lasts to the end of time.


Stone Meaning.


Here is the final Rune belonging to the Cycle of Initiation. Drawing Dagaz can signal a major shift or breakthrough in the process of self change, a turn. For some, the transformation in attitude - a 180-degree turn. For some the transition is so radical that they no longer continue to live the ordinary life in the ordinary way.


Because the timing is right, the outcome is assured although not from the present vantage point, predictable. In each life there comes at least one moment which, if recognised and seized, transforms the course of that life forever.

If Dagaz is followed by the Blank Rune, the magnitude of the transformation might be so total as to portend a death, the successful conclusion of your passage.


A major period of achievement and prosperity is often introduced by this Rune. The darkness is behind you; daylight has come. However, as always, you are reminded not to collapse yourself into the future or to behave recklessly in your new situation. Considerable hard work can be involved in a time of transformation. Undertake to do it joyfully.

Line Of Sight.

When the signs are large and easy to see, then its easy to read and even easier to be
Taking the the right from the gist of the know, delivering the directive of how to go
Reading the sign and finding the track, remembering the out for the way back Keeping the known in the easiest to be shown, from all of the best to be sown.


No need for the smoke signals of old, better the interpretations of the bold
Time to keep the message passing on, before the inner meaning is gone
Keeping up to speed and on the ball, to head off the stall to the inevitable call
Part of the process and in the loop, helps to avoid ending in the soup.

A Three Group Stone:


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Action.


Flow (Rev)/Laguz.


Flow.
Turning Tides.

When restricted or even dammed, as the steady continuum gets slammed
Delivery of expectations is reduced and the yield expected is not produced
Tidal eddies and stagnant pools, these all go against all the expected rules
Still waters are said to be running deep, as far down as the sediment will seep.


When channels narrow and start to restrict, the force of flow cannot inflict
Canals and their graded locks and gates, are use to elevate across the states
Interruption comes in fits and starts, that will eventually reach all its parts
Ebb and flow is just how it will come and go, as we all already know.


Stone Meaning.


Stemming, blockages and reduced flows. Stagnation and tedium.


The frittering away, the ebbing that does not replenish.

When time and tide have abated the residue, the carnage after the storm.

Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Water.


There are three runes in this group, they are symbolic of movement and with the element water. They can indicate flow if harmoniously supported by the other stones. Fluidity and steady progress, if negatively aspected diversion, disruption and rushing headlong.


The flow of life and its twists and turns are best handled in a steady stream and are a headlong rush of rapid changes dips and troughs.


Sacrifice.


Opening/Kuno.


Opening.
Making Room.

In a light bulb moment we get clarity, that all the jokers want to turn to hilarity
Seeing one way and then another, life is changing and adapting its such a bother
An opportunity to take new stock, while the others go once more round the block
So lets set out our stall of best wares, and do it like everyone actually cares.


Now after all the last few years turning twists, a chance to not just raise our fists
We will prepare better than some old lists, as their history recedes in the mists
This new chance to get things right, does not require a knock down fight
More a case of stepping up into the light, given out of darkness is better sight.


Stone Meaning.


Likened to an opening, renewed clarity, dispelling the darkness that has been shrouding some part of your life. You are free now to receive and to know the joy of non-attached giving.


Kuno is the Rune for the morning of activities, for seriousness, clear intent and concentration, all of which are essential at the beginning of work. The protection offered by Kuno is this: the more light you have, the better you see whatever is trivial and outmoded in your conditioning.


In relationships, there can now be a mutual opening up. You may serve as the trigger, the timekeeper, through your awareness that the light of understanding is once again available to you both.


Recognise that while on the one hand you are limited and dependent, on the other you exist at the perfect center where the harmonious and beneficent forces of the universe merge and radiate. You are the center.


Simply put, if you have been operating in the dark there is now enough light to see that the patient on the operating table is yourself.

New Situation.


Growth (Rev)/Berkana.


Growth.
Maxed Out.

When the shell starts to split, for the stem and root in the grit
The season warms the drive, for the push that proves what’s alive
Firming the stem then a branch to launch, no tide can staunch
More of the same, is the drive of the game, no wild can tame.


The root set down strong, as the stem grows up long
Seasons turn as the root brings relief, flourishing the new leaf
Part of the canopy of the stand, almost as if that’s how its planned
When height has been grown, now the drive is prone to seed whats sown.


Stone Meaning.


Another of the Cycle Runes, Berkana denotes a form of fertility that fosters growth both symbolically and actually. The growth may occur in affairs of the world, family matters, one's relationship to one's self or to the Divine.


A Rune that leads to blossoming and ripening, Berkana is concerned with the flow of beings into their new forms. It's action is gentle , penetrating, and pervasive.


What is called for here is going into things deeply, with care and awareness. First disperse resistance, then accomplish the work. For this to happen, your will must be clear and controlled, your motives correct. Any dark corners should be cleansed; this must be carried out diligently and sometimes with expert help. Modesty, patience, fairness and generosity are called for here. Once resistance is dispersed and rectification carried out and seen to hold firm, then, through steadfastness and right attitude, the blossoming can occur.

Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Summary.


A good boost from the stable mates gives another check then indicate then maneuver. This is a case of small adjustments and are just course adjustments here in the pattern repeating and the polar expectations remaining steady. The unification of global and personal advantages and the geometry all add to the solidity of the reading.

A bounty even a settlement, or a bet pays off, breakthrough says better then expectations but already known. Some communications are a challenge but no ignorance causing misunderstandings in the challenge here. A directional shift is a minor change and is to keep the course. The gateway has already been taken of late and the course adjustment is to compensate for a late turn or a wide or close cut line in the turn. Growth is about fleshing out and putting on form over any idea of upward spurts.

Just what the nest needed, advancing returns from the seeded. Signs are telling it as expected, as the rough ground is deflected. The way is tricky at the start, with reaching extents still at the heart.


Short:


A boost or even a gift, advances are given a lift. Messages are within the norm, as direction settles its form. A path has now been taken, and ruffled feathers are all well shaken.


Clipped:


Bonuses exceed rumoured pessimisms predicted shortfalls.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has four upright and two reversed stones in the presentation with a parity of four even and two reversed stones in the undercurrents. This polar shift is an 8/4 inclination that is still a two thirds swing to the better. This is a repeat of yesterdays swing to the positive spread more evenly by parity over the presentation and the undercurrents but as usual the key is in the groups.

There are eight groups present five of them are multiple with a quad hand of fate two separate quads one personal, Cycle is forming the overview square over the Mystic part of revealing and knowing in a global forming of a cube of union this is an unusual combination and the balance of four in the presentation and the four in the undercurrent lend themselves to this formation here. A full house with Tyr in bold profile as a charm over Joy bringing satisfaction in the personal. This leaves a pair of Freyr making a new situation and new developments a part of the global progress.

Partnership/Gebo.


Partnership.
New Connections.

For a union that can work as a team, either coasting or sauntering or full steam
In the unstated mutual knowing, no need for catchup just keep showing
Each on the mark with the spark, on their task doing their thing to get that bling
There is no divvy when we just share, not just the risks the dare of winners glare.


Each carries the team so if one falls, we brace the deficit as the duty calls
When all in we know the play, there might be nought for that rainy day
As we put more in than we take, we know its all for the greater sake
When one is down we rally round, by this bond we will all be bound.


Stone Meaning.


The strength of Partnership is in union, that is to say two halves that make up a distinct whole, the old adage the sum of the parts is greater than the whole best sums up this stone.


Partnership signifies the gift of freedom out of which all other gifts flow.


For the spiritual person or disciple this stone will indicate either a congregation of like minds and goals or a new understanding is /will /was achieved.


This stone is similar to the Charioteer who struggles to balance the team of horses into a well balanced unit, except with Partnership there should be a willing and mutual union.


Single Group Stone:


Freyr:

Summary.



Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


Breakthrough/Dagaz.

Breakthrough.
Passing Marks.

Glass ceiling broke, bragging rights not yet spoke, not taking a poke
No reveling in others eating our dust, just aiding the need as it must
New records have now been set, as the best is still to come yet
Terrain unknown and virgin tread, from the land comes the daily bread.


Respect the records that were once set, new challengers will come to place their bet
To try their best to beat the best, will still leave most in the ranks of the rest
As they step up to the plate, to give their all to test fate, some fail at that gate
Exceeding all that was once the top line, is the game that lasts to the end of time.


Stone Meaning.


Here is the final Rune belonging to the Cycle of Initiation. Drawing Dagaz can signal a major shift or breakthrough in the process of self change, a turn. For some, the transformation in attitude - a 180-degree turn. For some the transition is so radical that they no longer continue to live the ordinary life in the ordinary way.


Because the timing is right, the outcome is assured although not from the present vantage point, predictable. In each life there comes at least one moment which, if recognised and seized, transforms the course of that life forever. Rely, therefore, on radical trust , even though the moment may call for you to leap, empty-handed, into the void. With this Rune your Warrior nature reveals itself.


If Dagaz is followed by the Blank Rune, the magnitude of the transformation might be so total as to portend a death, the successful conclusion of your passage.


A major period of achievement and prosperity is often introduced by this Rune. The darkness is behind you; daylight has come. However, as always, you are reminded not to collapse yourself into the future or to behave recklessly in your new situation. Considerable hard work can be involved in a time of transformation. Undertake to do it joyfully.

Challenge.


Signals/Ansuz.


Signals.
Having A Clue.

Communication that is not mind to mind, is an awkward limited kind
Following spoor and reading track, to stock the larder or fill the stack
Some hints are on the wind and air, some are keen and some just not fair
Reading the sign and getting the gist, some obvious some will be mist.


Feedback is an essential tool, that stops the isolated feeling like the fool
Passing notes and getting scripts, safe in hand sliding out of our grips
Nothing is guaranteed in exchanges, as nothing is exempt to rearranges
Even when the writing’s on the wall, misinterpretations cause a fall.


Stone Meaning.


All forms of communication, interaction exchanges are associated with the Signals stone. This stone can signify Wisdom or the dawning of realisation.


The God aspect of this stone denotes new understandings or new beginnings and can indicate the beginning of a spiritual quest or a quest for understanding or an Initiation into the mysteries of life.


At the mundane level this stone signifies messages that inform instruct, warn or just prepare. So pay attention with chance meetings encounters trysts etc.

Flow (Rev)/Laguz.


Flow.
Redirecting Currents.

Coming to terms with the course of the flow, some things to keep others to go
Stashing all you can in the hold, making new strides breaking the mould
Riding the crest of the wave to come, is only for the few from the top sum
Gliding the dip and cresting the height, hitting the trail that is out of sight.


Now the ebb has turned and the flow starts to stride, its not a white knuckle ride
The surfer when he enters the zone, with no ax to grind no picking the bone
When centering in a flush, delivers that zen in the rush, that’s a stillness's hush
Making turns as are needed, by the breaks that are seeded, returning all that is needed.


Stone Meaning.


Stemming, blockages and reduced flows. Stagnation and tedium.


The frittering away, the ebbing that does not replenish.

When time and tide have abated the residue, the carnage after the storm.

Opening/Kuno.


Opening.
Well Timed.

The opportunity has been seized, the players are all well pleased
Finding treasures strewn around the land, using only whats close to hand
The camp is set and well disposed, and what opened is now closed
Routine is better learned, from all the knowledge newly earned.


A safe harbour, a clearing by the waterside, enough cover for kids to seek and hide
Vast vistas stretch to the skyline, and finding out their lay will take some time
Where the pickings are easy and the woods and waters provide on every side
Though the year is winding in an ebb of tide, much is prepared and stored inside.


Stone Meaning.


Likened to an opening, renewed clarity, dispelling the darkness that has been shrouding some part of your life. You are free now to receive and to know the joy of non-attached giving.

Summary.


Another positive inclination and the groups are unusual as well there is no static reading and some are odd combinations for the vocabulary of the stones is limited as life is more complex since its inception.

Having broken off from recent obligations, an opening is presenting to make a mutual tie with others in the same boat. This is a breakthrough after all the restrictions of the last contract, fresh signs and information all indicate a change of direction does not need a cut of before the change of flow. The timing of the break to come is well advertised and will be easily recognised, the initial costs will cause a drain but the drain is well within expectations.

Ready now to make commitments and ties, indications are clear which direction that lies. The signs ay that it needs a change, as the direction will rearrange. When the door is within sight, growth will reduce but only a slight.


Short:


Unbound and still ready to tie, advances are real and that’s no lie. Signs divert to a siding, returns are lower but its no hiding.


Clipped:


Unifying development indicates directional opportunities extents.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has three upright and three reversed stones in the presentation with five even and a single odd stone in the undercurrents. This is a positive 8/4 polar inclination that gives the weight to the undercurrents. This gives the face value less than the value they are chipped into. Books and covers does inform the consideration process. This is a shift down in gear since yesterdays 10/2 but is still more positive than negative with a two thirds bias to the best inclination. The boost as usual comes from the groups again.

There are six groups present four of them are multiple groups. There are four strong groupings from two pairings. The geometry has the two squares making the points forming a cube with Cycle at the top and Mystic squaring the base this is a concession of the global to the personal as none of the groups are in the personal stone here. Cycle brings, mind, body, emotion and spirit to bear with Mystic seeding new, obscure, indistinct and hidden to the party of as above so below. In the split hand there is an octahedron from the points with Tyr in bold mode at the pinnacle of the shape as Freyr brings new to the base of the shape the square on the plane binds preparation and expansion. This is the core make up of an octahedron from three squares. The fact that the personal is at the base and in empty or newborn mode is an indication of a fresh development and new start. As always the start of any new camp break is the extent of the last trip as a fresh start. When you reach a new height you will always find it is the base of another climb. The global is for a change the benefactor and facilitator of the personal.

Joy/Wunjo.


Joy.
Trial Success.

Elation and all its stages, as the feelings swell to ecstatic rages
The expanse of feeling to their edge, takes elevation to the next ledge
Filled with splendour or with awe, by all that’s felt by more than saw
Raises awareness to its best, of all the feeling in hopes great chest.


Accomplished, arrived, achieved and more, felt right to our very core
Both feet now back on ground, after elevation soared to new found
A settling in a sense of win, release from burden beyond all spin
To fulfil the faith that others invest, raises us to our very best.


Stone Meaning.


Like a fruit bearing branch is a welcome find to the hungry traveler. The term of travail is ended and you have come to yourself in some regard. The shift that was due has occurred and now you can freely receive Wunjo's blessings, whether they be in material gain, in your emotional life or in a heightened sense and awareness of your own well - being.


This is an alchemical moment in which understanding is transmuted from knowledge. The knowledge itself was a necessary but not sufficient condition; now you can rejoice, having been carried across the gap by the Will of Heaven.


Joyousness accompanies new energy, energy blocked before now. Light pierces the clouds and touches the waters just as something lovely emerges from the depths: the soul is illuminated from within, at the meeting place of Heaven and Earth, the meeting of the waters.


There is new clarity which may call for you to renounce existing plans, ambitions, goals. It is proper and timely for you to do so, for Wunjo is a Rune of Restoration, of the self properly aligned to the Self.


Two Group Stone:


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Summary.


The reading is a polar swing to the positive and is a statement of adaptability. The change after chaos is some settlement, some repair as much as throwing out the broken and old and replacing them. The need to form new relationships is becoming pressing in the wake of the last storm on the home front.

The twins this time are a matched pair one aiding the personal and the other bringing challenges into perspective, joy rides the rails from mirth to out and out outbursts and outpourings. The joy in the personal is pervasive and is well rooted even a healthy presence. The self is at the centre of the experience and that is apt, time life and the script will challenge the indulgence but a certain amount of distancing will buffer the effect. This might look selfish and self indulgent to the casual onlooker but it is well deserved. This will leave an opening for a better union at its worst and a good relationship at best.

Elated and feeling swell, the very core of being well. Extending into the cusp of play, dividing the work for the day. Delegate what need to be done, leaving room for another one.

Overview.


The Self/Mannaz.


The Self.
Be Nine.

Time to me, for what I wish it to be, what can be done is all in the wait and see
Well disposed and in good fettle, having survived the last test of mettle
Taking stock and being sparse, will help avoid turning out a farce
All we need is all we carry, there may even be enough time to tarry.


Carry only what we know we need, with enough provision to still seed
Being prepared to act and meet the deed, man of the world no known creed
Careful of acting in to much haste, aware how history turns that to waste
Sure footed and feeling well, in a broad broadcast so sight will tell.


Stone Meaning.


The self, the essence of self is formed in discipline, through moderation and tolerance we mould ourselves. Dedication and willingness to do the work of improvement are the least that is required.The Superior person anticipates and looks forward to moulding the temperament and gaining tolerance. This stone signifies the changes and growths that the self will undertake in the flow of life, these can be either self development through discipline or through the intervention of circumstances.


This stone when drawn singularly is advising the questioner to listen to their own inner voice whether it is instinct, intuition or the voice of inspiration learn to listen. The inquirer should be ready for changes or improvements but only if they are prepared to adapt to change as and when it occurs.


Enjoy the moment and delight in it's surprises and wonders.


Two Group Stone:


Rectification:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Challenge.


Joy/Wunjo.


Joy.
Relief.

From the depth of the edge of the deepest well of where hope had fell
Comes the light of the bright that brings the heart a sweet tell
Elated and rising, from the depth of the striving from where the soul was diving
Deep into the currents of the flow, above the crashing of the undertow.


Swept into the rise that defeats all the lies, unites and renews all worth’s ties
Not solitary or single, enriched as they mingle taking sensation past tingle
Paired when bonded before hearts absconded, to where new life’s responded
Tied to the need that’s dormant till the heed, driving hope to the need of joys seed.


Stone Meaning.


Like a fruit bearing branch is a welcome find to the hungry traveler. The term of travail is ended and you have come to yourself in some regard. The shift that was due has occurred and now you can freely receive Wunjo's blessings, whether they be in material gain, in your emotional life or in a heightened sense and awareness of your own well - being.


This is an alchemical moment in which understanding is transmuted from knowledge. The knowledge itself was a necessary but not sufficient condition; now you can rejoice, having been carried across the gap by the Will of Heaven.


Joyousness accompanies new energy, energy blocked before now. Light pierces the clouds and touches the waters just as something lovely emerges from the depths: the soul is illuminated from within, at the meeting place of Heaven and Earth, the meeting of the waters.


There is new clarity which may call for you to renounce existing plans, ambitions, goals. It is proper and timely for you to do so, for Wunjo is a Rune of Restoration, of the self properly aligned to the Self.


Two Group Stone:


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Action.


Separation/Uruz.

Separation.
Directional Divide.

The bull cuts from the herd one to breed, with an urge to deliver the seed
A predator cuts out the lame, by the knowing in their genetic game
Stop the rot or decaying by foil, remove the bad apple before the spoil
Like the slow hamper the teamsters toil, as mixing water with the oil.


Segregation by emotional bearing, is the better part of our caring
Logic and skills vary by need, when endorsed by positive feed
Distance is only the space between, heart connections go unseen
Time and space conspire to part, right from the very start.


Stone Meaning.


This stone symbolises separations, divisions and partings. On one level this could signify the parting of the ways or it can also emphasise the canceling out of opposites. The equal and opposite action and re-action.


The questioner is likely being asked to let things be and to not interfere with the cosmic destiny of the present circumstances, knowing when not to take action or not rising to the devils goads to take the reigns is a skill beyond measure.


Separation calls for the letting go of ones own will and letting the higher self take you the best route for your balanced growth.


The inheritance of this action is to reap what you have sown. Just material benefits, rewards or deserts will be forthcoming in the fullness of time.


Learning to let go and ride the cosmic winds of your destiny takes greater courage than the average person has.


Two Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Sacrifice.


Possessions/Fehu.


Possessions.
Real Worth.

To posses to own and keep, held by the need from greed running deep
The trinkets we adorn our dwelling, bought from the needy in their selling
Are the heirlooms we seek to leave, as they represent what we did achieve
When new life calls out another way, we sell them for a better day.


This cycle complete and fulfilled, is the furrow of the new being tilled
Keeping only what we feel we use, all the rest others will pick and choose
Some the victim of envies muse, as in misdirection these we will lose
Even though we cant take them with us, makes you think what's all this fuss.


Stone Meaning.


Fehu is a Rune of fulfillment: ambition satisfaction, love fulfilled, rewards received. It promises nourishment, from the most worldly to the most sacred and Divine. Moreover, if the ancient hermetic principle 'As above so below' is true, then we are also here to nourish God.


This Rune calls for a deep probing of the meaning of profit and gain in your life. Look with care to know whether it is wealth and possessions you require for your well-being, or rather self - rule and the growth of a will.


Another concern of Fehu is conserving what has already been gained. It urges vigilance and continual mindfulness, especially in times of good fortune, for it is then that we are likely to collapse ourselves into our success on the one hand, or to behave recklessly on the other. Enjoy your good fortune and remember to share it; the mark of the well nourished self is the willingness and ability to nourish others.


Two Group Stone:


Freyr:

The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


New Situation.


Partnership/Gebo.


Partnership.
New Relations.

For a union that can work as a team, either coasting or sauntering or full steam
In the unstated mutual knowing, no need for catchup just keep showing
Each on the mark with the spark, on their task doing their thing to get that bling
There is no divvy when we just share, not just the risks the dare of winners glare.


Each carries the team so if one falls, we brace the deficit as the duty calls
When all in we know the play, there might be nought for that rainy day
As we put more in than we take, we know its all for the greater sake
When one is down we rally round, by this bond we will all be bound.


Stone Meaning.


The strength of Partnership is in union, that is to say two halves that make up a distinct whole, the old adage the sum of the parts is greater than the whole best sums up this stone.


Partnership signifies the gift of freedom out of which all other gifts flow.


For the spiritual person or disciple this stone will indicate either a congregation of like minds and goals or a new understanding is /will /was achieved.


This stone is similar to the Charioteer who struggles to balance the team of horses into a well balanced unit, except with Partnership there should be a willing and mutual union.


Single Group Stone:


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Summary.


Nice to see the negative getting a positive slant after the stand off, this near dimensional shift is very welcome here. The twins are well aspected and the double barrel from Joy is a good lift and will do a lot of good.

The global perspective here is all facilitating a breakup and a new union lets hope they work out in propriety and take delight if the cart is before the horse. Joy in the personal is a welcome lift after surviving disruptions recent visit and a reversed breakthroughs passing, so this may well be relief’s response to release. The self interest in the overview is again par for the course aftermath self assessment following the storm. Any little thing after the big one will will be no real challenge and will be dealt with accordingly. A divide is in the sorting that must accompany action in the course of events. Some losses will be felt and some will be welcomed. There is a strong inclination towards a new union and to extend the hand that needs and lends.

Taking the lift for all it brings, the core of being soars and sings. Relief after the trial, needs some indulgent time for a while. Some things are a given, opening room for a shared living.


Short:


Elevated and on a high, giving being selfish a by. Reduces challenge to mirth and pleasure, time out is a real treasure. Leaving control well behind, as a new union sit centre mind.


Clipped:


Elated bearing promotes divvying goods equitably.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has six upright in the presentation with four even numbered stones and two odd numbered stones in the undercurrents. This is a polar quantum shift from a 6/6 stand off to a 10/2 positive swing. This is a good affirmation of the straight presentation with limited effects or interferences from the undercurrents.

There are five groups present four of them are multiple creating a split hand of fate. The twins give the advantage to none with Freyr and Joy making the divide. The upper hand is global with Freyr in tetrahedral mode with opportunity at the pinnacle, change, renewal and developments as the base triangle this is a driving state and not a receptive one as the split hand indicates. The base triangle has Tyr at the head of the charm and restitution from Rectification binds Joy to the process. New and rewarding even satisfying and appropriate are in this make up.

Fehu is a Rune of fulfillment: ambition satisfaction, love fulfilled, rewards received. It promises nourishment, from the most worldly to the most sacred and Divine. Moreover, if the ancient hermetic principle 'As above so below' is true, then we are also here to nourish God.

Summary.


A set of twins that boost the Freyr and Rectification presence. Their adverse nature brings the benefits to the personal slot. The negative swing is no real punishment and is well within tolerances, no great loss to the universe and no great gain to the personal but ownership is about taking it and doing well with it.

Possessions are being reviewed in the personal and it is more about ownership that material goods so this covers contracts and arrangements. Growth is the key to the overview as changes and investments all demand attention to potential. Inconvenient timing and interruptions are a challenge and also par for this course. It will take action to pick up the missed communications and dropped lines but not impossible. Advances are still under sacrifice as is the province of investment all layout anddelayed returns here. The New situation sees some property being relinquished, shelved and even stored if not just sold off in a deal.

Making sure of the ducks in a row, as all the extents flesh and grow. Timing is a little witch, as communications are on the off switch. Advances leave a little to mutter, but it is time to clear the clutter.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


Growth/Berkana.


Growth.
New Shoots.

News of this type of spurt, are the growing pains that are said not to hurt
A creeping slow and agonising gain, is the well know sort of growing pain
Like the agony from a failing tooth, that lingers and aches right to the dentist booth
This growth that we are now under, is the kind that brings acts of wonder.


No pain from gain or lash or chain, wont even bleed or better leave a stain
All plans are now well past needed, its time to get back to what was seeded
The trellis that is used to prop and aid, when served their use they will fade
Time now to send out the call, for this nation finally needs us one and all.


Stone Meaning.


Another of the Cycle Runes, Berkana denotes a form of fertility that fosters growth both symbolically and actually. The growth may occur in affairs of the world, family matters, one's relationship to one's self or to the Divine.


A Rune that leads to blossoming and ripening, Berkana is concerned with the flow of beings into their new forms. It's action is gentle , penetrating, and pervasive.


What is called for here is going into things deeply, with care and awareness. First disperse resistance, then accomplish the work. For this to happen, your will must be clear and controlled, your motives correct. Any dark corners should be cleansed; this must be carried out diligently and sometimes with expert help. Modesty, patience, fairness and generosity are called for here. Once resistance is dispersed and rectification carried out and seen to hold firm, then, through steadfastness and right attitude, the blossoming can occur.


Three Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Challenge.


Disruption/Hagalaz.


Disruption.
Poorly Timed.

To intervene or to sidetrack, what may never make its way back
Denying another their right to progress, asserting the selfish process
Clouding issues with a lie, undermining their every try for why?
That when cornered the perpetrator will deny, time for fur to fly.


Misdirection and misinformation, sabotaging the group relation
Like a jumped up lord of creation, high on selfish immolation
Taking by the right of perception, hiding behind subtle deception
Beware the friend to eager to lend as your confidence they bend.


Stone Meaning.


Change, freedom, invention and liberation are all attributes of this Rune. Drawing it indicates a pressing need within the psyche to break free with constricting identification with material reality and to experience the world of archetypal mind.


The Rune of elemental disruption, of events that seem to be totally beyond your control, Hagalaz has only an upright position, and yet it always operates through reversal. When you draw this Rune, expect disruption, for it is the great awakener, although the form the awakening takes may vary. Perhaps you will experience a gradual feeling of coming to your senses, as though you were emerging from a long sleep. Then again, the onset of power may be such as to rip away the fabric of what you previously knew as your reality, your security, your understanding of yourself, your work, relationships or beliefs.


Be aware, however, that what operates here is not ultimately an outside force, not a situation of you-at-the-mercy-of-externals. Your own nature is creating what is happening, and you are not without power. The strength you have funded until now in your life is your support and guide at a time when everything you have taken for granted is being challenged.


Receiving this Rune alerts you: you may sustain loss or damage - a relationship fails, plans go awry, a source of supply dries up. But do not be dismayed; you are forewarned and, therefore, encouraged to understand and accept what occurs as necessary for your growth.


The more severe the disruption in your life, the more significant and timely the requirements for your growth. Another of the Cycle Runes, the term 'radical discontinuity' best describes the action of Hagalaz at it's most forceful. The universe and your own soul are demanding that you do, indeed, grow.

The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Water.


There are three runes in this group, they are symbolic of movement and with the element water. They can indicate flow if harmoniously supported by the other stones. Fluidity and steady progress, if negatively aspected diversion, disruption and rushing headlong.


The flow of life and its twists and turns are best handled in a steady stream and are a headlong rush of rapid changes dips and troughs.


Action.


Signals (Rev)/Ansuz.


Signals.
Changing Courts.

The meaning sent in the knowing look, is all it took, none forsook
Radar set to wide ranger, just catnip for the stranger, no clear and present danger
Lured in, with a cocky grin, when the options are getting thin see who will win
Flash its trash, strip them in the mash, watch them burn and crash, for being flash.


Messages delivered on the quiet, all is peace not riot, a clear cost then try it
Time so precious still slips away, the land so known by its lay, the secret no one can say
Unspoken unshared, secularised to keep them cared, no thief has ever dared
Break the code of silent command, would be the ruin of the land, not what life planned.


Stone Meaning.


An adverse message, the inquirers will or purpose is at odds with the universal will or intention. The plan of the universe and the will of the great creator behind it is like the eternal river, its rush is mighty and its path is long, while the flow and will of the individual is like a tributary, that is swallowed up in the mighty flow of creations purpose.


When you re-align your plans to facilitate the universal will you will be going with the flow and will so be aided by it.


The actor in the play of life had to agree to the part before he found himself on the stage. That is the last place to start re-negotiating the part with the director, all contracts will be enforced with or without your consent. His will is undeniable. Even the body you inhabit is more unconscious than conscious. So quit struggling and enjoy the ride. What other choice do you have.


A Three Group Stone:


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Sacrifice.


Breakthrough (Rev NRM)/Dagaz.

Breakthrough.
Less Is More.

Glass ceiling broke, bragging rights not yet spoke, not taking a poke
No reveling in others eating our dust, just aiding the need as it must
New records have now been set, the the best is still to come yet
Terrain unknown and virgin tread, from the land comes the daily bread.


Respect the records that were once set, new challengers will come to place their bet
To try their best to beat the best, will still leave most in the ranks of the rest
As they step up to the plate, to give their all to test fate, some fail at the gate
Exceeding all that was once the top line, is the game that lasts to the end of time.


Stone Meaning.


Here is the final Rune belonging to the Cycle of Initiation. Drawing Dagaz can signal a major shift or breakthrough in the process of self change, a turn. For some, the transformation in attitude - a 180-degree turn. For some the transition is so radical that they no longer continue to live the ordinary life in the ordinary way.


Because the timing is right, the outcome is assured although not from the present vantage point, predictable. In each life there comes at least one moment which, if recognised and seized, transforms the course of that life forever. Rely, therefore, on radical trust , even though the moment may call for you to leap, empty-handed, into the void. With this Rune your Warrior nature reveals itself.


If Dagaz is followed by the Blank Rune, the magnitude of the transformation might be so total as to portend a death, the successful conclusion of your passage.


A major period of achievement and prosperity is often introduced by this Rune. The darkness is behind you; daylight has come. However, as always, you are reminded not to collapse yourself into the future or to behave recklessly in your new situation. Considerable hard work can be involved in a time of transformation. Undertake to do it joyfully.

New Situation.


Possessions (Rev)/Fehu.


Possessions.
Lightening Loads.

Time to let go that which holds us back, the tune is calling us to the track
The piper leads the courage of men, into battle now as then, by the ken
All is left that we cannot carry, we wait for those that tarry as they harry
We carry the means to provide, not all the worldly goods six lanes wide.


Travel light, bright, hale and hearty, carry only all the means to start a party
Beg borrow, never steal or lift, that sort of thing gets short shrift
The right good life party is the one to aid, the burgomaster never has paid
So bring a bottle and a friend, this is the party that will never end.


Stone Meaning.


Fehu is a Rune of fulfillment: ambition satisfaction, love fulfilled, rewards received. It promises nourishment, from the most worldly to the most sacred and Divine. Moreover, if the ancient hermetic principle 'As above so below' is true, then we are also here to nourish God.


This Rune calls for a deep probing of the meaning of profit and gain in your life. Look with care to know whether it is wealth and possessions you require for your well-being, or rather self - rule and the growth of a will.


Another concern of Fehu is conserving what has already been gained. It urges vigilance and continual mindfulness, especially in times of good fortune, for it is then that we are likely to collapse ourselves into our success on the one hand, or to behave recklessly on the other. Enjoy your good fortune and remember to share it; the mark of the well nourished self is the willingness and ability to nourish others.


Two Group Stone:


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Rectify:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


Summary.


There is an adverse set of twins on upright in the personal and adversely in the global. This is all about ownership and responsibility rather than real property. The swing in polarity is showing a negative hint as the mitigated stone takes the edge off the damage. Nothing is straight forward and the adversity is all about the changes taking effect rather than chaos hitting the script.

Ownership and reducing the clutter spring to mind after the disruption settling then kicking back up again. This will bring growth by freeing clutter and sorting excesses. There is an influx of uncertainty as challenge to the order of the day. Action means to confuse the lines of communication and will demand paying extra attention to keep up. There is a cost in the expected advances as additional costs and demands kick in from the changes that have been made.

Owning the moment is a good skill, the growth has nearly had its fill. Interruptions and timing are not all bad, the loss of signal is really sad. Forward is still a win, and most of the losses will still raise a grin.


Short:


Property is being reviewed, as extents are being renewed. Trouble undermines all it can, lost signals not part of the plan. Reducing advances of all kind, as some things slip from the mind.


Clipped:


Ownership expands discussions miscalling advancements losses.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has three upright and three reversed stones one mitigated in the presentation with four odd numbered and two even numbered stones in the undercurrents. This continues the negative swing with a 7/5 negative inclination. This is a strong reinforcement of disruption in challenge and is not the end of the world. The strengths are in the personal and the benefits in the global with the initiative coming from focus and course of action as the groups support.

There are eight groups present and four of them are multiples giving a split triple hand of a four of a kind, a full house and a small pair. The personal has the quad of Cycle in the tetrahedral form of concentration and attention at the pinnacle of the pyramid. Awareness, anticipation and caution are the base of the triangle. The full house in the global has Freyr holding form over new with original and revealing in a strong charm, with Tyr holding the bold assistant role to the full house to deal with new in its stride. This leaves Rectification and instructs balancing books, making restitution and dealing with it to the fore here.

No reveling in others eating our dust, just aiding the need as it must
New records have now been set, as the best is still to come yet
Terrain unknown and virgin tread, from the land comes the daily bread.


Respect the records that were once set, new challengers will come to place their bet
To try their best to beat the best, will still leave most in the ranks of the rest
As they step up to the plate, to give their all to test fate, some fail at that gate
Exceeding all that was once the top line, is the game that lasts to the end of time.


Stone Meaning.


Here is the final Rune belonging to the Cycle of Initiation. Drawing Dagaz can signal a major shift or breakthrough in the process of self change, a turn. For some, the transformation in attitude - a 180-degree turn. For some the transition is so radical that they no longer continue to live the ordinary life in the ordinary way.


Because the timing is right, the outcome is assured although not from the present vantage point, predictable. In each life there comes at least one moment which, if recognised and seized, transforms the course of that life forever. Rely, therefore, on radical trust , even though the moment may call for you to leap, empty-handed, into the void. With this Rune your Warrior nature reveals itself.


If Dagaz is followed by the Blank Rune, the magnitude of the transformation might be so total as to portend a death, the successful conclusion of your passage.


A major period of achievement and prosperity is often introduced by this Rune. The darkness is behind you; daylight has come. However, as always, you are reminded not to collapse yourself into the future or to behave recklessly in your new situation. Considerable hard work can be involved in a time of transformation. Undertake to do it joyfully.


Three Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Summary.


After all the positive swing recently the Mexican standoff has no advantage for the global over the personal. The Breakthrough is all about understanding and insight moving along from the old standing. The global defences have had a few knocks and are holding well. Old obligations are still holding some things back but not on all fronts. Being prepared for the work slots in between the breaks makes it all feel a little slow. But as the order gets back to normal the passing storm did leave a lot of clearing up to be done and this will require time, effort and energy.

Seeing things in a new light, defences stood the test of the fight. Bound by the need to do, application and will is down to you. The work is not a steady pace, and the settlement is not a form of grace.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


Defence/Eihwaz.


Defense.
Perimeter Watches.

Incarceration held and restrained, hamstringing our own is not contained
Towers on all the fences facing out, sentinels all poised to shout
The perimeter is the armour we ware, caution is the way that we care
None will be disturbed by much, not under the cover of the night watch.


The plate is solid and will stand the test, resilience will temper us to our best
All knocks taken and still defences stand, just like the results of the well planned
The wagons were loaded at dawn light, under cover and all out of sight
The camp slowly wakens to the new day, knowing what is left when under way.


Stone Meaning.


As we are tested we fund the power to avert blockage and defeat. At the time, we develop in ourselves an aversion to the conduct that creates stress in our lives.


If there appears to be an obstacle in your path, consider that even a delay may prove beneficial. Do not be overly eager to press forward, for this is not a situation in which you can make your influence felt. Patience is the counsel Eihwaz offers: nothing hectic, no acting needy, or lusting after a desired outcome. This Rune speaks to the difficulties that arise at the beginning of a new life. Often it announces a time of waiting - for spring to fill up with water, for fruit to ripen on the bough.


Perseverance and foresight are called for here. The ability to foresee consequences before you act is a mark of a thinking person. Avert anticipated difficulties through right action. For even more than we are doers, we are deciders. And once the decision is clear, the doing becomes effortless.


The Rune of Defense points out that, through inconvenience and discomfort, growth is promoted. For as the wood of the yew tree becomes the bow of the Spiritual Warrior, so the obstacle on your path can become the gateway to a new life unfolding.


This may well be a trying time; certainly it is a meaningful one. So set your house in order, tend to business, be clear, and wait on the will of Heaven.


Four Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


Rectification:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


Challenge.


Constraint/Nauthiz.


Constraint.
Taking Up Slack.

Stop wait even pause or slow, many revelers are coming to the show
Stood ready with a drive to go, waiting to recognise the moment we know
Bound by duty not tied to the spot, waiting to show just what we got
Next in line is just a matter of time based on our last we will do fine.


The gentle cup of self restraint, is the finest form of constraint
As the line moves on, we all move along, as opportunity is soon gone
Keyed to the point of being ready, knowing the thrill can be too heady
Keep the eye on the ball, staying ready to move not fall in the call.


Stone Meaning.


The necessity of dealing with sever constraint is the lesson of Nauthiz. The positive aspects of this Rune represent the limitations we directly cause ourselves. Its negative side attracts limitations from those around us. Both can be equally difficult to handle.


The role of Nauthiz is to identify our 'shadow', our dark or repressed side, areas where growth has been stunted, resulting in weaknesses that we project onto others. Don't take this world personally, this Rune is saying. Work with the shadow, examine inside you what magnetises misfortune into your life. When at last you can look on Nauthiz with a smile, you will recognise the troubles, denials and setbacks of life as your teachers, guides and allies.


The need for restraint is unquestionable here. Drawing this Rune indicates that there will be holdups, reasons to reconsider your plans carefully. There is work to be done on your self. So take it on with good will and show perseverance.


This is a time to pay of old debts, to restore, if not harmony, at least balance. So mend, restore, redress; when fishermen cant go to sea they repair nets. Let the constraints of this time serve you in righting your relationship to your self. Be mindful that rectification comes before progress. And once again consider the uses of adversity.

Action.


The Self/Mannaz.


The Self.
Personal Management.

All by your sitting on a shelf, with bums on seats its all about the self
Improvements are all the rage, when impatience turns the days page
Not a lot is felt good enough, not a candidate is even looking buff
Being hard about is just getting tough, more than any form of getting rough.


The lessons are still being learned, and every inch is really being earned
The mire still has its pull, that will waylay the unwary and the the fool
Even when you spy the higher ground, then the path is hard to find
Sometimes fate is not very kind, best have a contingency in mind.


Stone Meaning.


The self, the essence of self is formed in discipline, through moderation and tolerance we mould ourselves. Dedication and willingness to do the work of improvement are the least that is required.The Superior person anticipates and looks forward to moulding the temperament and gaining tolerance. This stone signifies the changes and growths that the self will undertake in the flow of life, these can be either self development through discipline or through the intervention of circumstances.


This stone when drawn singularly is advising the questioner to listen to their own inner voice whether it is instinct, intuition or the voice of inspiration learn to listen. The inquirer should be ready for changes or improvements but only if they are prepared to adapt to change as and when it occurs.


Enjoy the moment and delight in it's surprises and wonders.

Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Sacrifice.


Standstill/Isa.


Standstill.
Holding The Line.

To wait and see, to follow the flow, no active agenda of where to go
Stood taking in all around, no shackles or ties not even bound
Awe fills the moment and breaks the stride, is sensory override
Feeling connected by the share, held in raptures of depth of care.


The centre of the cyclone is still, with a quiet that suspends and does fill
Solitary is the stand of trees, that withstands that raging breeze
Motionless in a spellbound hiatus, as even the cyclone has to leave us
Waiting fills the need for deed, an exception to the stock reared breed.


Stone Meaning.


Drawing Isa often indicates that the winter of the spiritual life is upon you. You may find your self entangled in a situation to whose implications you are, in effect blind. You may be powerless to do anything except submit, surrender or even sacrifice some long-cherished desire. Be patient, for this is the period of gestation that proceeds a rebirth.


Positive accomplishment is unlikely now. There is a freeze on useful activity, all your plans are on hold. You may be experiencing an unaccustomed drain on your energy and wonder why: a chill wind is reaching you over the ice floes of old, outmoded habits.


Trying to hold on can result in shallowness of feeling, a sense of being out of touch with life. Seek to discover what it is you are holding on to that keeps this condition in effect, and let it go. Shed, release, cleanse away the old. That will bring on the thaw.


Usually Isa requires a sacrifice of the personal 'I'. And yet there is no reason for anxiety. Submit and be still, for what you are experiencing is not necessarily the result of your actions or habits, but of the conditions of the time against which you can do nothing. What has been full must empty; what has increased must decrease. This is the way of Heaven and Earth. To surrender is to display courage and wisdom.


At such time, you cannot hope to rely on help or friendly support. In your isolation, exercise caution and do not stubbornly persist in attempting to work your will. Remain mindful that the seed of the new is present in the shell of the old, the seed of unrealised potential, the seed of the good. Trust your own process, and watch the signs for spring.


Single Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


New Situation.


Disruption (Rev NRM)/Hagalaz.

Disruption.
New Settlements.

A negative diminished is a good thing, by lessening all the hassle it could bring
A silver lining without a cloud, but not enough reason to exclaim out loud
A respite from the steady interference, a marked lessening of the impedance
Breaks the certainty of expectation, giving damage a well earned vacation.


Delays and inconveniences get a dressing, like fate got the message to stop messing
Time now frees up more resources, just in time for the change of horses of courses
The day seems a lot less dark, when occasionally some of the salvo's hit their mark
When it has been said and done, inconvenience leaves returning where it begun.


Stone Meaning.


Change, freedom, invention and liberation are all attributes of this Rune. Drawing it indicates a pressing need within the psyche to break free with constricting identification with material reality and to experience the world of archetypal mind.


The Rune of elemental disruption, of events that seem to be totally beyond your control, Hagalaz has only an upright position, and yet it always operates through reversal. When you draw this Rune, expect disruption, for it is the great awakener, although the form the awakening takes may vary. Perhaps you will experience a gradual feeling of coming to your senses, as though you were emerging from a long sleep. Then again, the onset of power may be such as to rip away the fabric of what you previously knew as your reality, your security, your understanding of yourself, your work, relationships or beliefs.


Be aware, however, that what operates here is not ultimately an outside force, not a situation of you-at-the-mercy-of-externals. Your own nature is creating what is happening, and you are not without power. The strength you have funded until now in your life is your support and guide at a time when everything you have taken for granted is being challenged.


Receiving this Rune alerts you: you may sustain loss or damage - a relationship fails, plans go awry, a source of supply dries up. But do not be dismayed; you are forewarned and, therefore, encouraged to understand and accept what occurs as necessary for your growth.


The more severe the disruption in your life, the more significant and timely the requirements for your growth. Another of the Cycle Runes, the term 'radical discontinuity' best describes the action of Hagalaz at it's most forceful. The universe and your own soul are demanding that you do, indeed, grow.


Three Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Water.


There are three runes in this group, they are symbolic of movement and with the element water. They can indicate flow if harmoniously supported by the other stones. Fluidity and steady progress, if negatively aspected diversion, disruption and rushing headlong.


The flow of life and its twists and turns are best handled in a steady stream and are a headlong rush of rapid changes dips and troughs.


Summary.


This is a stalemate and is just treading water even ticking over in the global as developments and insights are the order for the personal. No real benefit for the global over the personal and the groups aid the stand to take and the line to hold.

Advancing understanding is a breakthrough, while a defensive stance is holding well and is doing the job as intended. Some obligations are still in place but they are diminishing here. Action demands application and will and even the fortitude to take the time out and to let things go. Chaos is settling down and order is being asserted again after the blow has passed.

Memory and recall are being kind, facilitating understanding in the mind. The perimeters are well tested, some confines have to be bested. Bearing is up to the task, time out for a dram from the hip flask. The falling rubble is now settling dust, as intention is measured by the must.


Short:


Getting ahead, security put to bed, tied and bound not easily led, as healthy as well fed, time out in the shed, a settlement is easily said.


Clipped:


Advancements preserve binding bringing stillness’s consolidation.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has five upright and a single mitigated stone in the presentation with a parity in the undercurrents with five odd numbered and a single even numbered stone in a mirrored representation of the surface stones. This creates a 6/6 stand off with no advantage from the polarity and inclinations from it. The advantage as usual is all from the groups. There are seven groups present in the reading five of them are multiple groups. There are three hands here with a four of a kind of Heimdall in the global and this is a clear balance of the square in pairs between preparation and caution grows anticipation. Then there is a full house with the triple charm for Cycle and Tyr making a bold play to to focus and attention to aid anticipation in the personal slot. This leaves a small pair of Mystic and Rectification as revelations are best interpreted in anticipation to stay ahead of the curve and a balance is held in check by appropriation and even a karmic levy. A good set of groups for getting the handle on things and even the jump on events, with a care to balance and order makes understanding the theme.

Summary.


Another anarchistic polar shift here, nothing easy in dark and light. Defence is a concern rather than a full attack, walking the perimeter and like the warrior on guard its all for peace of mind. Leave valuables in a safe place and don’t sweat, it may even be a good idea to move them as gateway suggests. This is a solitary task and so cut out from the herd, take the time and reflect on what brought us to this point.

Taking time, to walk the line. Cutting down on the clutter, turning off the line is a bit of a strutter. Leave the group to settle down, take the moment to shed the frown.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


The Warrior (Rev)/Teiwaz.


The Warrior.
Seasonal Downtime.

To surrender to the universal will, is just acceptance no enemy that we need to kill
Letting go is the hardest task, its the last defenses behind the players mask
When the fight is gone, life takes over when the struggle has all been done
Once this simple choice has been made, the inner purpose will be bade.


Practice pays of in the heat of battle, to not get butchered just like cattle
To dig deep and find the metal, of a calibre that is of a different fettle
Experience is added to our tales, of all our successes and some fails
No ones path is good tracks and easy passes, that stuff is taught in classes.


Stone Meaning.


The adverse being at odds with himself. Watches victory slip from their hands.


The petty drives of the ego, the selfish needs of the few. The conflict of self.


Conscious and unconscious conflict. All the signs of unrest and discontent.


The conscious drive needs to be brought into alignment with the unconscious purpose, as it is the most honest part of the being, in most people.


Two Group Stone:


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Challenge.


Possessions (Rev)/Fehu.


Possessions.
Down Sizing.

To have and to hold, all within the same fold, one made only for the bold
Does not come with a written receipt, but it will have all the rest beat
A prize is not how this one starts, but is is where taste and quality parts
Best of the order and selection, right under the nose no easy detection.


Ownership is all a delusion, one that separates and denies inclusion
Not just another one for a display case, no this one has a particular place
Prized and sought out above others, when seen you’ll see why it bothers
That old itch to have and to hold, not for the meek just for the bold.


Stone Meaning.


Fehu is a Rune of fulfillment: ambition satisfaction, love fulfilled, rewards received. It promises nourishment, from the most worldly to the most sacred and Divine. Moreover, if the ancient hermetic principle 'As above so below' is true, then we are also here to nourish God.


This Rune calls for a deep probing of the meaning of profit and gain in your life. Look with care to know whether it is wealth and possessions you require for your well-being, or rather self - rule and the growth of a will.


Another concern of Fehu is conserving what has already been gained. It urges vigilance and continual mindfulness, especially in times of good fortune, for it is then that we are likely to collapse ourselves into our success on the one hand, or to behave recklessly on the other. Enjoy your good fortune and remember to share it; the mark of the well nourished self is the willingness and ability to nourish others.


Two Group Stone:


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Rectify:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


Action.


Gateway/Thurisaz.


Gateway.
Available Slot.

The way is clear, for all of us my dear, leave none for fear
Paths are trails well trod, so give the nod, to help us steer
Where new to you, this different view, is travelled by us all
There is a height and age restriction, not years or the tall.


Initiation on the path well trod, is new to you on your own
Testing self, fresh from the shelf, is proof of age and how you’ve grown
Patience waits at the gates, for the intake moment of fates
Knowing that time and tide those fickle tests that never waits.


Stone Meaning.


With gateway for it's symbol, this Rune indicates that there is work to be done both inside and outside yourself. The gateway is the frontier between Heaven and the mundane. Arriving here is a recognition of your readiness to contact the numerous, the Divine, to illuminate your experience so that it's meaning shines clearly through it's form.


Thurisaz is a Rune of non-action. Thus, the gateway is not to be approached and passed through without contemplation. Here you are being confronted with a true reflection of what is hidden within yourself, what must be exposed and examined before successful action can be undertaken. This Rune strengthens your ability to wait. Now is not a time to make decisions. Deep transformational forces are at work in this next-to-last of the Cycle Runes.


Visualize yourself standing before a gateway on a hilltop. Your entire life stretches out behind you and below. Before you step through, pause and review the past: the learning and the joys, the victories and the sorrows - everything it took to bring you here. Observe it all, bless it all, release it all. For in letting go of the past you reclaim your power.


Step through the gateway now.


Three Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.

Sacrifice.


Partnership/Gebo.


Partnership.
Unsigned.

The tandem, the trio and the team, make things bigger than they really seem
One for all and all for me, as we are all off to see, just how we should be
No island is a solo destination, or like Robinson Crusoe living by imagination
The herd, the flock, the shoal and pack, they graze, pick, swoop and snack.


Still needing someone to watch your back, best defence from a sneak attack
Once committed there’s no going back, as that leash will never go slack
By our side or in our corner, no longer playing little jack forlorn-er
No union is ever set in stone, except the rule but not on your own.


Stone Meaning.


The strength of Partnership is in union, that is to say two halves that make up a distinct whole, the old adage the sum of the parts is greater than the whole best sums up this stone.


Partnership signifies the gift of freedom out of which all other gifts flow.


For the spiritual person or disciple this stone will indicate either a congregation of like minds and goals or a new understanding is /will /was achieved.


This stone is similar to the Charioteer who struggles to balance the team of horses into a well balanced unit, except with Partnership there should be a willing and mutual union.


Single Group Stone:


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


New Situation.


Standstill/Isa.


Standstill.
StandBy.

Arrival is the travellers destination, though not the same in every nation
When fate picks you up and carries you on, all illusions of control are then gone
Stood still allows the moment to catch up, as refreshing as a sip from the grace cup
Deep is the sense of being humble, when fate drives it will never fumble.


Now the seat has been reached, and there’s no discrepancy to what was preached
Bringing the best of what was taught, knowing that no compromise is nothing brought
The moment demands the need for dealing, with the weight that the moment is sealing
From this new plateau the vista is grand, turning a new leaf play what comes to hand.


Stone Meaning.


Drawing Isa often indicates that the winter of the spiritual life is upon you. You may find your self entangled in a situation to whose implications you are, in effect blind. You may be powerless to do anything except submit, surrender or even sacrifice some long-cherished desire. Be patient, for this is the period of gestation that proceeds a rebirth.


Positive accomplishment is unlikely now. There is a freeze on useful activity, all your plans are on hold. You may be experiencing an unaccustomed drain on your energy and wonder why: a chill wind is reaching you over the ice floes of old, outmoded habits.


Trying to hold on can result in shallowness of feeling, a sense of being out of touch with life. Seek to discover what it is you are holding on to that keeps this condition in effect, and let it go. Shed, release, cleanse away the old. That will bring on the thaw.


Usually Isa requires a sacrifice of the personal 'I'. And yet there is no reason for anxiety. Submit and be still, for what you are experiencing is not necessarily the result of your actions or habits, but of the conditions of the time against which you can do nothing. What has been full must empty; what has increased must decrease. This is the way of Heaven and Earth. To surrender is to display courage and wisdom.


At such time, you cannot hope to rely on help or friendly support. In your isolation, exercise caution and do not stubbornly persist in attempting to work your will. Remain mindful that the seed of the new is present in the shell of the old, the seed of unrealised potential, the seed of the good. Trust your own process, and watch the signs for spring.


Single Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Summary.


The polar shift of the readings is still not the end of the world but it is a chaotic reading and so to take a straight reed of the presentation and to give note to the troubled spots is the best way to deal with this.

Defence in the personal brings security capabilities as well as actual perimeters to the fore, doors, windows, keys and access all play the part here. The overview sees the warrior at odds and in responsive mode and even on patrol as defence. Travel light carry only what you need to as possessions may take on a life of their own or just disappear too easily. Cutting ties and working solo are the sacrifice to be made here. This will bring about a waiting and stillness after the rounds are done.

Eyes peeled and scan on full, the guard is keen feeling the pull. Plan on letting things go, take the doorways clearly on show. Leave the group and strike out on your own, stillness is usually far from being alone.


Short:


A perimeter is now in place, the guard is on a steady pace. Possessions need extra care, making turns requires some flair. Letting go and heading out, taking time to handle doubt.


Clipped:


Alerted guard focuses opportunities separating motives.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has four upright and two reversed stones in the presentation with a single even stone and five odd numbered stones in the undercurrents. The swing is more a polar shift even a dimensional jump from positive to negative. The 7/5 negative inclination is a polar shift from yesterday. This is not apocalyptic as that was supposed to be yesterday the new planets pull was not enough it seems to end the day to day humdrum. The real benefit here though even with so many negative undercurrents is the groups take the heat out of it all.

There are seven groups five of them are multiple, there is no real advantage in the spreads from the groups as Cycle is a solitary Johnny no mates and the global is all about actions and reactions just like the personal here. There are two hands of fate here with a solid four of a kind as the upper hand. The four pairs have no real pinnacle for focus and so the square is formed as opposed to the tetrahedron. The four points have Protection and Heimdall bringing caution and preparation into play as revelation comes from Mystic and Rectification indicates a balance of karmic like needs for measure and appropriateness. The split hand is a three of a kind with Freyr indicating new fresh ground and developments. This creates an unusual collection of adversity and convergence. Caution, preparation, awareness and restore and balance action and endeavour as new is the ground we walk on today.

Active Maneuvers.

Single Stone.


Present.


Wholeness/Sowelu.


Wholeness.
Rectifying.

Healed restored even rejuvenated, the recovery cannot be overstated
Long time out in the broken wild, regenerated youthful not as a child
Stepping out with a new spring, now isn't that just the darnest thing
Renewed and replenished to the brim, time to get back into the swim.


Reconciled and reunited, dancing all excited, like the lost newly sighted
Prodigal to the fold once lost, never taking the time to count the cost
Returns and rewards fill the chest, and time at the last to have the best
Nothing is lost when nothing is ventured, not only a slave is indentured.


Stone Meaning.


This Rune stands for wholeness, that which your nature requires. It embodies the impulse toward self-realisation and indicates the path you must follow, not from ulterior motives but from the core of your individuality.


Seeking after wholeness is the Spiritual Warrior's quest. And yet what you are striving to become in actuality is what you, by nature, already are. You must become conscious of your essence and bring it into form, express it in a creative way. A Rune of great power, making energy available to you. Sowelu marks a time for regeneration right down to the cellular level.


Although this Rune has no reversed position, there is reason for caution. You may see fit to withdraw, to retreat in the face of a pressing situation, especially if events or people are demanding that you expend your energy now. Know that such a retreat in strength, and that it can indicate the need for a voyage inward for cantering, for balance. Timely retreat is among the skills of the Spiritual Warrior.


At the same time, for some, this Rune counsels opening yourself up, letting the light into a part of your life that has been secret, shut away. To accomplish this may call for profound recognition's, for admitting to yourself something that you have long denied.


There is a prayer known as the Gayatri that embodies the spirit of Sowelu. Address the sun in this fashion:


You, who are the source of all power, Whose rays illuminate the world, Illuminate also my heart So that I can do your work.


While reciting the Gayatri, visualise the sun's rays streaming forth into the world, entering your own heart, then streaming out from your heart center and back into the world. This is a powerful and life-enhancing prayer.


There is caution here not to give yourself airs. Even in a time of bountiful energy, you are required to face and vanquish your refusal to let right action flow through you. Nourish this capacity, for it is a mark of true humility.


Practice the art of doing without doing: aim yourself truly and then maintain your aim without manipulative effort. Meditate on Christ's words: I can of mine own self do nothing. For by our own power we do nothing. Even in loving, it is Love that loves through us. This way of thinking and being integrates new energies and permits you to flow into wholeness, which is the ultimate goal of the Spiritual Warrior.

Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Summary.


A swing in polarity is not a bad thing with strength in the mix, the trend is still as positive and after a push there is a letting go at the end of the reach. All about recuperating after effort, staying within parameters and making the changes that are needed as they come into play.

A refreshing state of the personal over the global with wholeness indicating a healing even a restoration from deficits and depletions. A directional change is in the consideration as an opportunity is left to slip on by. A steadying influence comes from overcoming challenges as resolution builds competence to confidence. A less expansive approach to work keeping within limitations and no pushing barriers is advised here. Downtime will be sacrificed to the needs of the flow and will aid the results for the total good.

Renewed and even repaired, bad directions will be spared. A solid footing and steady hand, filling out as was planned. Take the stand to make the change, so the flow can rearrange.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


Gateway (Rev)/Thurisaz.


Gateway.
Closing Doors.

The opening appeared, now the door is closed and there is the path ahead
Stood standing first on this threshold, didn’t jump, wasn’t pushed, isn’t led
That secret door, that led to this floor, accepts only those meagre or poor
Self worth is now keying, opening the way to being, by the fount unveiling.


The question why, is the trap to the lie, as who is for guilt to fly
From the inquisition again, still needing the ken, like where accuses the then
Doubt of knowledge is landing, like ignorance devoid of understanding
Self worth sets the stride, that doubt cannot hide, once we cross this divide.


Stone Meaning.


The Spiritual warrior has wrestled with the ego. The spiritual path is becoming clear as the old ways, karmic influences and willful ways are replaced by the natural universal principles.


Solitude teaches that we are not meant to be alone for great lengths of time, lest we loose our humanity and the ties that bind are irreparably broken.


The natural resizing of the soul either as a wise leader or a spiritual advisor. Preparing to re-enter the community level of life, with a renewed sense of purpose and a new will to re-integrate.


The souls convalescence is over. The raging storm has passed and we all stand renewed. refreshed and replenished.


Three Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


Challenge.


Strength/Uruz.

Strength.
Core Points.

The strength that is needed to see things through
We are resolute and standing our ground as we do
The steel of the will and the forge of our passion
Is known in our history, not just some modern fashion.


The resolve is set and the steel is tempered true
The patience of saints focused on the late review
Particles will settle in the still and quiet waiting
The impatient will fidget with feelings needing sating.


Stone Meaning.


The beast of burden willingly carries its load knowing that it will eat and sleep only when the work is complete, the beast cannot choose its master and some will be blessed with good conditions and care while others will only find harshness and continual toil.


The soul warrior will use this time to discipline the self to overcome the pettiness of self and to realise that the prevailing life conditions are random events of good and bad, easy and hard depending on the wind of fortune.


The best of people in the worst of circumstances learn the meaning of self sacrifice. The worst of people in the same circumstances do not do as well. The worst of people in the best of circumstances let their petty nature and selfish ways show through, while the best of people in the best of circumstances still show the best of their nature.


Aligning the soul with the universal goal is a demanding and arduous task, but it does have its rewards.The beast of burden willingly carries its load knowing that it will eat and sleep only when the work is complete, the beast cannot choose its master and some will be blessed with good conditions and care while others will only find harshness and continual toil.

Action.


Growth (Rev)/Berkana.


Growth.
Cutting Cloth.

When the shell starts to split, for the stem and root in the grit
The season warms the drive, for the push that proves what’s alive
Firming the stem then a branch to launch, no tide can staunch
More of the same, is the drive of the game, no wild can tame.


The root set down strong, as the stem grows up long
Seasons turn as the root brings relief, flourishing the new leaf
Part of the canopy of the stand, almost as if that’s how its planned
When height has been grown, now the drive is prone to seed whats sown.


Stone Meaning.


Another of the Cycle Runes, Berkana denotes a form of fertility that fosters growth both symbolically and actually. The growth may occur in affairs of the world, family matters, one's relationship to one's self or to the Divine.


A Rune that leads to blossoming and ripening, Berkana is concerned with the flow of beings into their new forms. It's action is gentle , penetrating, and pervasive.


What is called for here is going into things deeply, with care and awareness. First disperse resistance, then accomplish the work. For this to happen, your will must be clear and controlled, your motives correct. Any dark corners should be cleansed; this must be carried out diligently and sometimes with expert help. Modesty, patience, fairness and generosity are called for here. Once resistance is dispersed and rectification carried out and seen to hold firm, then, through steadfastness and right attitude, the blossoming can occur.

Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Sacrifice.


Standstill/Isa.


Standstill.
Consolidating Ground.

Arrival is the travellers destination, though not the same in every nation
When fate picks you up and carries you on, all illusions of control are then gone
Stood still allows the moment to catch up, as refreshing as a sip from the grace cup
Deep is the sense of being humble, when fate drives it will never fumble.


Now the seat has been reached, and there’s no discrepancy to what was preached
Bringing the best of what was taught, knowing that no compromise is nothing brought
The moment demands the need for dealing, with the weight that the moment is sealing
From this new plateau the vista is grand, turning a new leaf play what comes to hand.


Stone Meaning.


Drawing Isa often indicates that the winter of the spiritual life is upon you. You may find your self entangled in a situation to whose implications you are, in effect blind. You may be powerless to do anything except submit, surrender or even sacrifice some long-cherished desire. Be patient, for this is the period of gestation that proceeds a rebirth.


Positive accomplishment is unlikely now. There is a freeze on useful activity, all your plans are on hold. You may be experiencing an unaccustomed drain on your energy and wonder why: a chill wind is reaching you over the ice floes of old, outmoded habits.


Trying to hold on can result in shallowness of feeling, a sense of being out of touch with life. Seek to discover what it is you are holding on to that keeps this condition in effect, and let it go. Shed, release, cleanse away the old. That will bring on the thaw.

New Situation.


Flow/Laguz.


Flow.
Shifting Gears.

Where it starts out no one knows, nor what way it will proceed or even where it goes
The way they say is all in the day, that winds and turns throughout its fray
It trickles then meanders or may even gush, up to speeds that gives a rush
Blockages will be swept away, as all that force of volume holds its sway.


When the flow meanders by, giving time to stop replace and even shop or buy
Time trickles in a lazy dance, giving people that old catch up chance to dance
So when the course starts to speed, and most are sated by some fulfilled need
The watch and crew will stand to, knowing that replenished leaves lots still to do.


Stone Meaning.


Unseen powers are at work here, powers that nourish, shape and connect. The attributes of this Rune are water, fluidity, the ebb and flow of emotions, of vocations and relationships. Laguz supports your desire to immerse yourself in the experience of living without having to evaluate or understand. It speaks to the satisfaction of emotional needs, to the awakening of the intuitive or lunar side of your nature. For while the sun strives for differentiation, the moon draws us toward union and merging.


This Rune often signals a time for cleansing: for revaluing, reorganising, re-aligning. A Rune of deep knowing, Laguz may call you to study spiritual matters in readiness for self transformation. Success now lies in contacting your Intuitive Knowing, in attuning to your own rhythms. A Rune of the self relating rightly to the Self, Laguz signifies what alchemists called conjunction, or sacred marriage. In fairy tales, it is the end where the hero and heroine live happily ever after.


Three Group Stone:


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.

Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Water.


There are three runes in this group, they are symbolic of movement and with the element water. They can indicate flow if harmoniously supported by the other stones. Fluidity and steady progress, if negatively aspected diversion, disruption and rushing headlong.


The flow of life and its twists and turns are best handled in a steady stream and are a headlong rush of rapid changes dips and troughs.


Summary.


There may not be a twin here but there is a spread bond with two stable mates in the presentation. The personal restoring and recuperation has the sacrificial mate standstill taking time out for the recovery needed. This is a good indication that movement has happened and that the course is set and old avenues have been left to go by the way.

Wholeness in the personal is aided by the time in sacrifice to recuperate, so this is not just recuperation but convalescing. The gateway or original target of the day is blocked and an alternative is in place as strength in challenge indicates. This takes a steady if not progressive stance after the pause to change the direction on a stable pivot the flow will get things back to speed.

Healed and recuperated, the old is now closed gated. A steady stance finds new roots, and delimits the extent of advancing shoots. Sacrificing the downtime length, resets the directional strength. Things will again start to flow, once direction is all in the know.


Short:


Restoring and remade, as the old door will fade. Steady is the stance unshaken, near extents are to be taken. Pausing to make it clear, as the direction changes the steer.


Clipped:


Restoring direction steadies, developing statutory changes.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has four upright and two reversed stones in the presentation with an even split of three even numbered stones and three odd numbered stones in the undercurrents. The polarity swingometer has stepped down from the 9/3 three quarter positive yesterday to a stand by 7/5 off centre positive leaning. This is a reasonable response after a positive incline that does not bring about a stagnation standoff. The benefits are again in the groups.

There are seven groups present with five multiple groups making two hands one global and one personal in the presentation. The odd thing here is the four of a kind is the personal as the solo group tie is Heimdall and Cycle is all in the global groups. The quad has Tyr at the bold pinnacle of the tetrahedron with Heimdall at the base triangle introducing preparation between Freyr stating new and Mystic showing revelations and tiny they may be but necessary all the same. This leaves Cycle in charm formation in the global so even though it is the herd state it is benign to the self and not extracting. The focus of concentration and preparation is the overview of this global benefit.

The Warrior/Teiwaz.


The Warrior.
Barracked.

Fortitude and readiness are packed in the kit, work rest and play keeps life well fit
Seasoned by trials that tested the steel, presence assures that the abilities are real
Withstanding the baiting enduring the waiting no confidence deflating or feelings sating
Rebound from the falls, respond as duty calls, see that focus never palls, walk the halls.


Ready to rally, and scout in the sally, in the thick never counting tally, or get too pally
Live life in the moment as it is found, take only what is needed not by the pound
Steadily in good patience, look back in good conscience, never quibble the pence
Never act up or get snooty, a fair share of the duty, to get the same from the booty.


Stone Meaning.


This is the symbol of the Spiritual Warrior. Always the battle for the Spiritual Warrior is with the self. Funding a will through action yet unattached to outcomes, able to be radically alone, remaining mindful that all you can really do is stay out of your own way and let the will of Heaven flow through you - these are among the hallmarks of the Spiritual warrior.


Embodied in this Rune is the energy of discrimination, the sword like quality that enables you to cut away the old, the dead the extraneous. And yet, with Teiwaz comes certain knowledge that the universe always has the first move. Patience is the virtue of this Rune, and it recalls the words of St Augustine that the reward of patience is patience.


Here, you are asked to look within, to delve down to the foundations of your life it's self. Only in so doing can you hope to deal with the deepest needs of your nature and to tap into your most profound resources. The moulding of character is at issue when Teiwaz appears in your spread.


Associated with this Rune are the sun. masculine energy, the active principle. The urge toward conquests prominent here, especially self conquest, which is a life long pursuit and calls for awareness, single-mindedness and the willingness to undergo your passage with compassion and in total trust.


In issues of relationship, devotion to a cause, an idea or a path of conduct, the warrior Rune counsels perseverance, although the kind of perseverance required is patience.


Teiwaz is a Rune of courage and dedication. In ancient times it was this glyph that warriors painted on their shields before battle. Now, the same symbol strengthens your resolve in the struggle of Self with Self.


Two Group Stone:


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Summary.


Following on in the trend of the last few readings the positive swing is a good boost to the reading. The advantage is to the personal here and the Warrior is not engaged but definitely on duty. A coming to terms even a new understanding is happening in the overview through initiation. Some things are being left dropped off even given away as well as leaving groups relationships are all indicated here in the challenge from separation. Wholeness is reversed and mitigated so it is a coming to form even a collecting of the parts before the build as the action suggests. This will mean postponements, delays and even putting trips and meetings on hold. The ground is well tilled and the manure is mixed as the area for growth is defined and the yield will meet expectations.

Standing ready and keeping aware, new understandings from the edge of dare, some things we can no longer share, placing the parts needs a steady care. Time to delay what was once agreed, now that the seed has been freed.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


Initiation/Perth.


Initiation.
Familiarising.

A flash a glint a nod a wink, when off the page to know not think
A mark a sign a breadcrumb trail, for instruction to never fail
The sign of the infiltrator, their exit collapses structures like a traitor
Sapper in the rank and file, claiming superiority is just vile, more a wile.


To topple at this time the last stronghold, done in the blind side by the bold
They claim that their deserting in good faith, those fiendish acts of the wraith
Never people there for the party, taking all they can to stay hearty, smells farty
While we were sleeping or dreaming sound, their audacity will soon astound.


Stone Meaning.


A hierarchic or mystery rune, Perth points to that which is beyond our frail manipulative powers. This Rune is on the side of heaven, the Unknowable, and has associations with the Phoenix, that mystical bird which consumes itself in the fire and then arises from its own ashes. It's ways are secret and hidden.


Powerful forces of change are at work here. Yet what is achieved is not easily or readily shared. After all, becoming whole, the means of it is a profound secret.


On the side of the earthly or mundane, there may well be surprises; unexpected gains are not unlikely. On the side of human nature, this Rune is symbolised by the flight of the eagle. Soaring flight, free from entanglement, lifting yourself above the endless ebb and flow of ordinary life to acquire broader vision - all this is indicated here. This is the Rune of questing.


Another of the Cycle runes, Perth is concerned with the deepest stratum of being, with the bedrock on which your destiny is founded. Nothing external matters here, except as it shows you its inner reflection. For some, drawing Perth means experiencing a psychic death. If need be, let go of everything, no exceptions, no exclusions. Nothing less than renewal of the Spirit is at stake.


Three Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


Challenge.


Separation/Uruz.

Separation.
Hard Breaks.

Not together just apart, no greater distance than the beat of a heart
Two do not occupy the same time and space, that dance just can’t take place
Distance is the illusion of being alone, giving rise to the need to atone
No crime just the state of play, just how the way winds wind through the day.


Coming to the journey from two places, in opposites one walks the other races
As two that are of a similar mind, bearing little differences and more in kind
The journey only has one destination, that fate must work in its machination
Twists and turns since this begun, are now the measure of our fun, till done.


Stone Meaning.


This stone symbolises separations, divisions and partings. On one level this could signify the parting of the ways or it can also emphasise the canceling out of opposites. The equal and opposite action and re-action.


The questioner is likely being asked to let things be and to not interfere with the cosmic destiny of the present circumstances, knowing when not to take action or not rising to the devils goads to take the reigns is a skill beyond measure.


Separation calls for the letting go of ones own will and letting the higher self take you the best route for your balanced growth.


The inheritance of this action is to reap what you have sown. Just material benefits, rewards or deserts will be forthcoming in the fullness of time.


Learning to let go and ride the cosmic winds of your destiny takes greater courage than the average person has.

Wholeness.
Itemising Parts.

Stripped down for maintenance, not really a desirable first stance
Sorting out the scattered parts, digging into those sacred hearts
Dissecting the flow of how things go, means dropping speed to a go slow
Scattered and even miles apart, makes it difficult to focus to start.


Being the repairman of our own plans, good sense places no bans
Access all areas and opening restrictions, reduces negative frictions
Breaking down the bits and pieces, the scavenger filches and fleeces
Ready to make a better build, when all the repairs and renewals fulfilled.


Stone Meaning.


This Rune stands for wholeness, that which your nature requires. It embodies the impulse toward self-realisation and indicates the path you must follow, not from ulterior motives but from the core of your individuality.


Seeking after wholeness is the Spiritual Warrior's quest. And yet what you are striving to become in actuality is what you, by nature, already are. You must become conscious of your essence and bring it into form, express it in a creative way. A Rune of great power, making energy available to you. Sowelu marks a time for regeneration right down to the cellular level.


Although this Rune has no reversed position, there is reason for caution. You may see fit to withdraw, to retreat in the face of a pressing situation, especially if events or people are demanding that you expend your energy now. Know that such a retreat in strength, and that it can indicate the need for a voyage inward for cantering, for balance. Timely retreat is among the skills of the Spiritual Warrior.


At the same time, for some, this Rune counsels opening yourself up, letting the light into a part of your life that has been secret, shut away. To accomplish this may call for profound recognition's, for admitting to yourself something that you have long denied.


There is a prayer known as the Gayatri that embodies the spirit of Sowelu. Address the sun in this fashion:


You, who are the source of all power, Whose rays illuminate the world, Illuminate also my heart So that I can do your work.


While reciting the Gayatri, visualise the sun's rays streaming forth into the world, entering your own heart, then streaming out from your heart center and back into the world. This is a powerful and life-enhancing prayer.


There is caution here not to give yourself airs. Even in a time of bountiful energy, you are required to face and vanquish your refusal to let right action flow through you. Nourish this capacity, for it is a mark of true humility.


Practice the art of doing without doing: aim yourself truly and then maintain your aim without manipulative effort. Meditate on Christ's words: I can of mine own self do nothing. For by our own power we do nothing. Even in loving, it is Love that loves through us. This way of thinking and being integrates new energies and permits you to flow into wholeness, which is the ultimate goal of the Spiritual Warrior.


Single Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Sacrifice.


A Journey (Rev)/Raido.

A Journey.
Detoured.

To take the trip to hop and skip through every turn and dip never letting attention slip
Best foot forward to a steady pace, it’s a journey not a contested race for first or place
A walk a saunter even a run, a varied pace is more fun, until the journey is done
The need to make up the time, means no sacrifice for memories that will still be fine.


Not a single file or caravan trail, not under pressure so the bearers bail or hightail
A sojourn to be had at every oasis, now that if not a plan is a very good basis
To set the task for the daily trip, to keep the schedule and never let it slip
Arrival will come that final day, that will show if the bearings ever lost their way.


Stone Meaning.


The severing of bonds and ties the parting of the ways, leavings and endings are indicated.


A forced isolation or a needed retreat from the world is indicated. Carried by the forces of disruption.


Feelings of separation and isolation, being out of step with the harmony around you.


Three Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


New Situation.


Growth/Berkana.


Growth.
Reaching Out.

News of this type of spurt, are the growing pains that are said not to hurt
A creeping slow and agonising gain, is the well know sort of growing pain
Like the agony from a failing tooth, that lingers and aches right to the dentist booth
This growth that we are now under, is the kind that brings acts of wonder.


No pain from gain or lash or chain, wont even bleed or better leave a stain
All plans are now well past needed, its time to get back to what was seeded
The trellis that is used to prop and aid, when served their use they will fade
Time now to send out the call, for this nation finally needs us one and all.


Stone Meaning.


Another of the Cycle Runes, Berkana denotes a form of fertility that fosters growth both symbolically and actually. The growth may occur in affairs of the world, family matters, one's relationship to one's self or to the Divine.


A Rune that leads to blossoming and ripening, Berkana is concerned with the flow of beings into their new forms. It's action is gentle , penetrating, and pervasive.


What is called for here is going into things deeply, with care and awareness. First disperse resistance, then accomplish the work. For this to happen, your will must be clear and controlled, your motives correct. Any dark corners should be cleansed; this must be carried out diligently and sometimes with expert help. Modesty, patience, fairness and generosity are called for here. Once resistance is dispersed and rectification carried out and seen to hold firm, then, through steadfastness and right attitude, the blossoming can occur.


Three Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Summary.


From the global the situation of change and not quite complete has the personal at attention. The positive inclination adds to the straight reed and is another notch from yesterdays two thirds to three quarters positive and a boost from the mitigated stone. A steady reflection of being on the spot and having to rely on capability rather than help from others.

Attention focussed and fully aware, introductions done with care. Cast off all the old bind, extending understandings of every kind. Miss the train the car but not the boat, to reach the extents where application floats.


Short:


Aware and focussed, understanding better noticed. Leaving and diviing, restoring the edge of living. Cancelling hookups, expanding new lookups.


Clipped:


Attention informs breakups breakdowns redirecting expansions.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has four upright and two reversed stones one mitigated in the presentation with five even and a single odd stone in the undercurrents. This continues the swing to the positive with a 9/3 in polar inclination. The only odd stone is a positive presentation and they do say that the uniform is never fully ever off duty even when its hanging in the wardrobe. The trend towards a strong positive inclination is reinforced by strong stones in good slots and even the mitigated stone is an advantage, but the main power is from the groups.

There are seven groups present in the reading four of them are multiple groups. There is a strong upper four of a kind hand for the personal and a split hand of a full house in the global with a small pair to finish. The Cycle quad has focus and attention at the pinnacle of the tetrahedron with preparation responsiveness and awareness in the base triangle as would aid the Warrior in readiness. The split hand has a three of a kind charming Tyr in bold preparation mode of the charm base of the full house with Heimdall aiding the preparative state. The final pair is a safe base to the two spreads equally. This gives the personal the initiative and the global the supporting role in this configuration.

Disruption (Rev NRM)/Hagalaz.

Disruption.
Falling Together.

Changing routines to better ways, that last the nation till the end of days
Old obligations have still to be settled, now the test has been metaled
The team took every advantage that came their way, the medal count has its say
Upsetting all the usual winners, even the few defaulting sinners outing inners.


The game has changed and moved along, some new records need a gong
Spirits are high and focus good, from pushing barriers by carrot not should
The shadow has fallen under the light, losing all the advantage to win the fight
Faith requires a better chance, what was the last target in our glance.


Stone Meaning.


Change, freedom, invention and liberation are all attributes of this Rune. Drawing it indicates a pressing need within the psyche to break free with constricting identification with material reality and to experience the world of archetypal mind.


The Rune of elemental disruption, of events that seem to be totally beyond your control, Hagalaz has only an upright position, and yet it always operates through reversal. When you draw this Rune, expect disruption, for it is the great awakener, although the form the awakening takes may vary. Perhaps you will experience a gradual feeling of coming to your senses, as though you were emerging from a long sleep. Then again, the onset of power may be such as to rip away the fabric of what you previously knew as your reality, your security, your understanding of yourself, your work, relationships or beliefs.


Be aware, however, that what operates here is not ultimately an outside force, not a situation of you-at-the-mercy-of-externals. Your own nature is creating what is happening, and you are not without power. The strength you have funded until now in your life is your support and guide at a time when everything you have taken for granted is being challenged.


Receiving this Rune alerts you: you may sustain loss or damage - a relationship fails, plans go awry, a source of supply dries up. But do not be dismayed; you are forewarned and, therefore, encouraged to understand and accept what occurs as necessary for your growth.


The more severe the disruption in your life, the more significant and timely the requirements for your growth. Another of the Cycle Runes, the term 'radical discontinuity' best describes the action of Hagalaz at it's most forceful. The universe and your own soul are demanding that you do, indeed, grow.


Three Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Water.


There are three runes in this group, they are symbolic of movement and with the element water. They can indicate flow if harmoniously supported by the other stones. Fluidity and steady progress, if negatively aspected diversion, disruption and rushing headlong.


The flow of life and its twists and turns are best handled in a steady stream and are a headlong rush of rapid changes dips and troughs.


Summary.


Another positive leaning reading with a strong aid from the mitigated stone settling after a disruption. The personal has a strong presence of a double charm link in Disruption as a reversed stone it aids a settling after an upheaval, even getting back to routine. A moments pause even time to reflect in the overview is in keeping with waiting till things settle. The sense of protection is as good as relief of survival brings. A rich potential is just waiting on action so application and will would be a good start. Going it alone and breaking the team up has a loosening up effect that makes the journey worth the effort.

Calmness in the settling dust, taking time out in trust. Safe in a secure zone, tilling ground to de-stone. Cutting ties and making breaks, knowing the destination and what it takes.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


Standstill/Isa.


Standstill.
Moments Pause.

Arrival is the travellers destination, though not the same in every nation
When fate picks you up and carries you on, all illusions of control are then gone
Stood still allows the moment to catch up, as refreshing as a sip from the grace cup
Deep is the sense of being humble, when fate drives it will never fumble.


Now the seat has been reached, and there’s no discrepancy to what was preached
Bringing the best of what was taught, knowing that no compromise is nothing brought
The moment demands the need for dealing, with the weight that the moment is sealing
From this new plateau the vista is grand, turning a new leaf play what comes to hand.


Stone Meaning.


Drawing Isa often indicates that the winter of the spiritual life is upon you. You may find your self entangled in a situation to whose implications you are, in effect blind. You may be powerless to do anything except submit, surrender or even sacrifice some long-cherished desire. Be patient, for this is the period of gestation that proceeds a rebirth.


Positive accomplishment is unlikely now. There is a freeze on useful activity, all your plans are on hold. You may be experiencing an unaccustomed drain on your energy and wonder why: a chill wind is reaching you over the ice floes of old, outmoded habits.


Trying to hold on can result in shallowness of feeling, a sense of being out of touch with life. Seek to discover what it is you are holding on to that keeps this condition in effect, and let it go. Shed, release, cleanse away the old. That will bring on the thaw.


Usually Isa requires a sacrifice of the personal 'I'. And yet there is no reason for anxiety. Submit and be still, for what you are experiencing is not necessarily the result of your actions or habits, but of the conditions of the time against which you can do nothing. What has been full must empty; what has increased must decrease. This is the way of Heaven and Earth. To surrender is to display courage and wisdom.


At such time, you cannot hope to rely on help or friendly support. In your isolation, exercise caution and do not stubbornly persist in attempting to work your will. Remain mindful that the seed of the new is present in the shell of the old, the seed of unrealised potential, the seed of the good. Trust your own process, and watch the signs for spring.


Single Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Challenge.


Protection/Algiz.


Protection.
Falling Back.

A shield is the armour that meets the strike
Armour has a price to pay on the long hike
To cover every inch of the body is possible
Being fleet of foot in armour is just impossible.


A vigil of mind is set to keep safe, all that cost dear
To value and preserve, without a shadow of fear
This is the discipline or the script for the day
So treading carefully, nothing is lost along the way.


Stone Meaning.


Control of the emotions is at issue here. During times of transition, shifts in life course and accelerated self-change, it is important not to collapse yourself into your emotions - the highs as well as the lows. New opportunities and challenges are typical of this Rune. And with them may come trespasses and unwanted influences.


Algiz serves as a mirror for the Spiritual Warrior, the one whose battle is always with the self. The protection of the Warrior is like the warning rustle of the sedge grass or like the curved horns of the Elk, for both serve to keep open space around you. Remain mindful that timely action and correct conduct are the only true protection. If you find yourself feeling pain, observe the pain, stay with it. Don't try to pull down the veil and escape from life by denying what is happening. You will progress; knowing that is your protection.

Action.


Fertility/Inguz.


Fertility.
Tilling Ground.

Ripeness and coming to term, to use the knowing we never learn
Cultivated to the point of need, ready for new investments seed
Getting ready for life to play, the games of life to shape our way
Potent and pertinent are now ready, where progress is sure and steady.


Potential being realised, skills and materials being opportunely sized
Advantage seen in the inkling of the eye, ready skills honed to apply
The windfall that provides the need, a meal to fill and then the seed
Timing and experience with the skill, ready the opportunity to fill.


Stone Meaning.


This Rune is akin to the moon, the intuitive part of our nature, with it's urge toward harmonizing and adjusting in the sphere of personal relationships. Inguz embodies the need to share, the yearning to be desired, a search for similarities.


The completion of beginnings is what Inguz requires. It may mark a time of joyous deliverance, of a new life, a new path. A Rune of great power, drawing it means that you now have the strength to achieve completion, resolution, from which comes a new beginning. Above all, completion is crucial here. It may be timely that you complete some project now; if so, make that your first priority. Perhaps a difficult state of mind can be resolved, clarified, turned around. Drawing this Rune indicates that you must fertilise the ground for your own deliverance.


All things change and we cannot live permanently amid obstructions. Inguz signals your emergence from a closed chrysalis state. As you resolve and clear away the old, you will experience a release from tension and uncertainty.


You may require to free yourself from a rut, habit or relationship; from some deep cultural or behavioral pattern, some activity that was quite proper to the self that you are leaving behind. The period at or just before birth is a dangerous one. Movement involves danger, yet movement that is timely moves out of danger. Now it is time to enter the delivery room.


Another of the Cycle Runes, Inguz counsels preparation. Being centered and grounded, freeing yourself from all unwanted influences, and seeing the humour, you are indeed prepared to open yourself to the will of Heaven, and can await your deliverance with calm certainty.


Two Group Stone:

Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Sacrifice.


Partnership (Rev)/Gebo.


Partnership.
Letting Go.

Mind body soul and emotion, all the thinks to give life motion
To put the drive back in the hive to let life thrive to not take the dive
Living at the edge of thrust, do as you like not as you must
Care and attention to inner being from inner focus to outer seeing.


Perceptions bring better perspective, identifying the new objective
Reform renew and then do what we do what once was solo is now two
To meet yourself coming back will throw all the unsure off the track
Centered being and cool nerves, will have the balance and the reserves.


Stone Meaning.


The strength of Partnership is in union, that is to say two halves that make up a distinct whole, the old adage the sum of the parts is greater than the whole best sums up this stone.


Partnership signifies the gift of freedom out of which all other gifts flow.


For the spiritual person or disciple this stone will indicate either a congregation of like minds and goals or a new understanding is /will /was achieved.


This stone is similar to the Charioteer who struggles to balance the team of horses into a well balanced unit, except with Partnership there should be a willing and mutual union.


Single Group Stone:


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


New Situation.


A Journey/Raido.

A Journey.
Travel Permits.

On the eternal walk of life, as we steer a course far from strife
Keeping up with all the chat, no longer has an envelope hitting a mat
The mobile need for connection, is for catchup over protection
Knowing we are just at the end of a line, helps with feeling fine.


The line is long, and the connections strong, after a ring ring or a ding dong
To never need to feel alone or disconnected, was a byproduct not expected
The trip from first designs to present revisions, exceed the first limited versions
What was expressed in early song, would get a booby prize or a raspberry gong.


Stone Meaning.


This main concerned is with communication, with the atonement of something that has two sides, two elements, and with the ultimate reunion that comes at the end of the journey, when what is above and below are united and are again of one mind.


Inner worth mounts here, and at such a time you must remember that you are not intended to rely entirely upon your own power, but rather to ask what constitutes right action. Ask through prayer, through addressing your own knowing, the Witness Self, the teacher within. Not intent on movement, be content to wait; while you wait, keep on removing resistances. As the obstructions give way, all remorse arising from 'trying to make it happen' disappears.


The journey is toward self healing, self change and union. You are concerned here with unobstructed, perfect union. But the union of Heaven and Earth cannot be forced. Regulate any excesses in your life. Material advantages must not weigh heavily on this journey of the self toward the Self. Stand apart even from like minded others; the notion of strength in numbers does not apply, for this part of the journey cannot be shared.


Another of the Cycle Runes, Raido represents the soul's journey and has within it the element of joy, for the end is in sight. No longer burdened by what you've left behind, Heaven and Earth unite within you to support you on your way. A simple prayer for the soul's journey is:


I will to will Thy will.

Summary.


A steady incline towards the positive sees this reading showing a leaning of two thirds to the good. The statement reading is a further inclination to a set of readings of late that may even show a pattern of repeats forming due to the direction of travel and the delay of departure. There appears to be a steady reluctance to stepping off the cliff at the leadership level as they hate to be without a safety net as they try to give themselves guarantees when the whole premiss is to walk in faith.

A setting of the dust from the overview of late and the clutter is falling into place not the world falling apart here. There is a hiatus in place that is the reluctance to step up step out and make the move. The delay will have costs of a deeper kind if the delay gets prolonged past the comfort zone for effective long term change. A safe and protected area and direction is in place and is challenging the reluctance to step up. The actions are all producing results and hold good promise for future growth. Some dead weight that is dragging us all back must be shed soon and not aided and supported to stay afloat well after their term is over. The kindest cut of all is to slit the throat and not let them suffer the delusion. The trip is booked, the arrivals are all checking in the departure time is being harassed and delayed by irrelevances, time to have a word with the and to force the hand.

Things fall well back into place, while the fearful still call for space. A secure and well guarded spot, with rich enough potential to return a lot. Make the sacrifice and make it well, time to play the hand just where it fell.


Short:


Making sense, relax from tense. Made secure, potential not demure. Time to shed the ties, knowing the route never lies.


Clipped:


Settling moments secure potential divergent destinations.

This 8/4 two thirds positive swing in polarity is in keeping with the trend of the last few readings dispositional inclination. The full benefit is aided by the groups in the reading.

There are six groups in the reading with a split hand of fate of two full houses one for the personal and one for the global. The personal has cycle and Freyr producing a focus on branching away from the norm and looking and focusing on development rather than maintenance. The split hand has the charmed presence of Protection coupled with the preparation of Heimdall all in all an outwards looking set of full houses that brings more than the two pairs would.

Separation/Uruz.

Separation.
Peeling Off.

Not together just apart, no greater distance than the beat of a heart
Two do not occupy the same time and space, that dance just can’t take place
Distance is the illusion of being alone, giving rise to the need to atone
No crime just the state of play, just how the way winds wind through the day.


Coming to the journey from two places, in opposites one walks the other races
As two that are of a similar mind, bearing little differences and more in kind
The journey only has one destination, that fate must work in its machination
Twists and turns since this begun, are now the measure of our fun, till done.


Stone Meaning.


This stone symbolises separations, divisions and partings. On one level this could signify the parting of the ways or it can also emphasise the canceling out of opposites. The equal and opposite action and re-action.


The questioner is likely being asked to let things be and to not interfere with the cosmic destiny of the present circumstances, knowing when not to take action or not rising to the devils goads to take the reigns is a skill beyond measure.


Separation calls for the letting go of ones own will and letting the higher self take you the best route for your balanced growth.


The inheritance of this action is to reap what you have sown. Just material benefits, rewards or deserts will be forthcoming in the fullness of time.


Learning to let go and ride the cosmic winds of your destiny takes greater courage than the average person has.

Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Summary.


An indication of change in the status quo after yesterdays breakthrough. This allows for advancements from sorting the redundant from the necessary. Another statement reading indicating a course of action in action. The pair of stable mates bring and indication of a signpost and then a turn or directional shift to take advantage of the indicator.

A layering and even a sorting is described here as separation. Just as the chaos is starting to settle down. New order is bringing a better focus, this reintroduces a known understanding and brings a better insight and understanding. The signs are all well highlighted and a prompt will aid the final change of direction to take advantage of an opening that has been well highlighted for some time now.

Segregating the layers within, chaos settling is a safe win. Bearing up and getting ready, the introduction is steering steady. Signs indicate a change is coming, the advance notice is fairly humming. The turn is not away but towards, that once taken strikes new accords.

Disruption (Rev NRM)/Hagalaz.

Disruption.
Dust Settling.

A negative diminished is a good thing, by lessening all the hassle it could bring
A silver lining without a cloud, but not enough reason to exclaim out loud
A respite from the steady interference, a marked lessening of the impedance
Breaks the certainty of expectation, giving damage a well earned vacation.


Delays and inconveniences get a dressing, like fate got the message to stop messing
Time now frees up more resources, just in time for the change of horses of courses
The day seems a lot less dark, when occasionally some of the salvo's hit their mark
When it has been said and done, inconvenience leaves returning where it begun.

Change, freedom, invention and liberation are all attributes of this Rune. Drawing it indicates a pressing need within the psyche to break free with constricting identification with material reality and to experience the world of archetypal mind.


The Rune of elemental disruption, of events that seem to be totally beyond your control, Hagalaz has only an upright position, and yet it always operates through reversal. When you draw this Rune, expect disruption, for it is the great awakener, although the form the awakening takes may vary. Perhaps you will experience a gradual feeling of coming to your senses, as though you were emerging from a long sleep. Then again, the onset of power may be such as to rip away the fabric of what you previously knew as your reality, your security, your understanding of yourself, your work, relationships or beliefs.


Be aware, however, that what operates here is not ultimately an outside force, not a situation of you-at-the-mercy-of-externals. Your own nature is creating what is happening, and you are not without power. The strength you have funded until now in your life is your support and guide at a time when everything you have taken for granted is being challenged.


Receiving this Rune alerts you: you may sustain loss or damage - a relationship fails, plans go awry, a source of supply dries up. But do not be dismayed; you are forewarned and, therefore, encouraged to understand and accept what occurs as necessary for your growth.


The more severe the disruption in your life, the more significant and timely the requirements for your growth. Another of the Cycle Runes, the term 'radical discontinuity' best describes the action of Hagalaz at it's most forceful. The universe and your own soul are demanding that you do, indeed, grow.


Three Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Water.


There are three runes in this group, they are symbolic of movement and with the element water. They can indicate flow if harmoniously supported by the other stones. Fluidity and steady progress, if negatively aspected diversion, disruption and rushing headlong.


The flow of life and its twists and turns are best handled in a steady stream and are a headlong rush of rapid changes dips and troughs.


Challenge.


The Self/Mannaz.


The Self.
Capability.

Self knowledge is the measure, that when it is good is a pleasure
Respecting rights of the other, is returned as the act of a brother
Equal status and universal right, keeps the edge off the need to fight
Self worth and status in the team, keep the human train on full steam.


Learning and knowing, are all growing, where will and aptitude are showing
No boastful display of just crowing, but a future crop from this sowing
Awareness of the better sense of self, not some magic image from an elf
Is the focus for the next stages, as all the changes level all the next rages.


Stone Meaning.


The self, the essence of self is formed in discipline, through moderation and tolerance we mould ourselves. Dedication and willingness to do the work of improvement are the least that is required.The Superior person anticipates and looks forward to moulding the temperament and gaining tolerance. This stone signifies the changes and growths that the self will undertake in the flow of life, these can be either self development through discipline or through the intervention of circumstances.


This stone when drawn singularly is advising the questioner to listen to their own inner voice whether it is instinct, intuition or the voice of inspiration learn to listen. The inquirer should be ready for changes or improvements but only if they are prepared to adapt to change as and when it occurs.


Enjoy the moment and delight in it's surprises and wonders.


Two Group Stone:


Rectification:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Action.


Initiation/Perth.


Initiation.
Learning Curves.

An introduction to the production can put a bevel on the level
The word to the wise, true power is not judged by physical size
The truth of this is there is only one prize, not for the lord of lies
Understanding is the fruit of knowledge, not something you get from college.


Understanding delivers a sentient knowing, a gift for the lost to get going
Not for the mean seekers of tight sowing, don’t care how good you are at rowing
At this time our need is more and the bill is due, how else you get it is down to you
Pay in installments but not in kind, or up front and in full if you don’t mind.


Stone Meaning.


A hierarchic or mystery rune, Perth points to that which is beyond our frail manipulative powers. This Rune is on the side of heaven, the Unknowable, and has associations with the Phoenix, that mystical bird which consumes itself in the fire and then arises from its own ashes. It's ways are secret and hidden.


Powerful forces of change are at work here. Yet what is achieved is not easily or readily shared. After all, becoming whole, the means of it is a profound secret.


On the side of the earthly or mundane, there may well be surprises; unexpected gains are not unlikely. On the side of human nature, this Rune is symbolised by the flight of the eagle. Soaring flight, free from entanglement, lifting yourself above the endless ebb and flow of ordinary life to acquire broader vision - all this is indicated here. This is the Rune of questing.


Another of the Cycle runes, Perth is concerned with the deepest stratum of being, with the bedrock on which your destiny is founded. Nothing external matters here, except as it shows you its inner reflection. For some, drawing Perth means experiencing a psychic death. If need be, let go of everything, no exceptions, no exclusions. Nothing less than renewal of the Spirit is at stake.

Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


Sacrifice.


Signals/Ansuz.


Signals.
Broken Lines.

When the signs are large and easy to see, then its easy to read and even easier to be
Taking the the right from the gist of the know, delivering the directive of how to go
Reading the sign and finding the track, remembering the out for the way back
Keeping the known in the easiest to be shown, from all of the best to be sown.


No need for the smoke signals of old, better the interpretations of the bold
Time to keep the message passing on, before the inner meaning is gone
Keeping up to speed and on the ball, to head off the stall to the inevitable call
Part of the process and in the loop, helps to avoid ending in the soup.


Stone Meaning.


All forms of communication, interaction exchanges are associated with the Signals stone. This stone can signify Wisdom or the dawning of realisation.


The God aspect of this stone denotes new understandings or new beginnings and can indicate the beginning of a spiritual quest or a quest for understanding or an Initiation into the mysteries of life.


At the mundane level this stone signifies messages that inform instruct, warn or just prepare. So pay attention with chance meetings encounters trysts etc.


The receiving of knowledge can be informative, enlightening or revealing. A possible revelation.

Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


New Situation.


Opening/Kuno.


Opening.
Knock Knock.

In a light bulb moment we get clarity, that all the jokers want to turn to hilarity
Seeing one way and then another, life is changing and adapting its such a bother
An opportunity to take new stock, while the others go once more round the block
So lets set out our stall of best wares, and do it like everyone actually cares.


Now after all the last few years turning twists, a chance to not just raise our fists
We will prepare better than some old lists, as their history recedes in the mists
This new chance to get things right, does not require a knock down fight
More a case of stepping up into the light, given out of darkness is better sight.


Stone Meaning.


Likened to an opening, renewed clarity, dispelling the darkness that has been shrouding some part of your life. You are free now to receive and to know the joy of non-attached giving.


Kuno is the Rune for the morning of activities, for seriousness, clear intent and concentration, all of which are essential at the beginning of work. The protection offered by Kuno is this: the more light you have, the better you see whatever is trivial and outmoded in your conditioning.


In relationships, there can now be a mutual opening up. You may serve as the trigger, the timekeeper, through your awareness that the light of understanding is once again available to you both.


Recognise that while on the one hand you are limited and dependent, on the other you exist at the perfect center where the harmonious and beneficent forces of the universe merge and radiate. You are the center.


Simply put, if you have been operating in the dark there is now enough light to see that the patient on the operating table is yourself.

Summary.


This progress report is as expected every time we get back on this inevitable track, the reading has reflected the swithering of late between options and the separation process is nearly complete as the line formulates on the need to make an advancing move as stagnation is not desirable. The stable mates indicate a clear course of signal, check and then maneuver and it cannot be easier to follow.

The separation is about aligning the self and letting go of the old assumptions and beliefs. After the last upheaval the dust is settling and order is taking shape. This is a challenging moment as a lot of redundant ties will be left to fall by the way in the process. Learning on the spot is an initiation to the ways developing by doing. A clear sign will indicate the opening that is bearing down on the need for change here.

Broken apart and segregated, order out of chaos is well fated. Taking new bearing while on the go, brings an understanding with a better know. Some lines of old knowing must be left, as we approach the next tricky cleft.


Short:


Segregating into useful piles, settlement brings needed smiles. Bearing introduces better sight, signals indicate openings in the night.


Clipped:


Divergence settles bearing clarifying indicated opportunities.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has five upright and a single mitigated reversed stone in the presentation with three even and three odd numbered stones in the undercurrents. The 8/4 polarity split carries on the gradual incline towards a more positive stance the mitigated stone adds support to the swing and aids the settling of the mayhem. The advantage is again all in the multiple groups.

There are seven groups present in the reading five of them are multiples giving a breakdown of a five of a kind and two single three of a kinds giving a triple hand of fate here. There is no twin stone but a pair of stable mates sees Signals indicating or signposting an up and coming Opening, in old driving parlance indicate, look, maneuver. The personal has a strong five of a kind of Cycle this square based pyramid of points has attention at the pinnacle of the square base of concentration, recognition, focus and anticipation this formed from initiation and aids being ahead of the curve coming out of disruptions hold. This leaves Mystic as the charmed triple in the global from disruption nothing can be assumed and anticipation and realisation are the key to this environment. The final split hand has a group of three aiding the integration of personal and global with Tyr in preparation mode boldly holding ground as Heimdall encourages a steady progress in caution as Freyr indicates new movement forwards into new not backwards into known.

Breakthrough/Dagaz.

Breakthrough.
Achievement.

Careful what you wish for, it will arrive, but more
So set goals, within your fishing shoals, near the shore
The day has come, it is begun the way ahead is clear
Take heart in trust, to do what must, then launch to steer.


The shell is shed, as we shake the lead and go
One step then another, strike out the other, then sow
The faith you keep, in trust held deep, is passions power
Stride strong and true, that’s all of you, time calls the hour.


Stone Meaning.


Here is the final Rune belonging to the Cycle of Initiation. Drawing Dagaz can signal a major shift or breakthrough in the process of self change, a turn. For some, the transformation in attitude - a 180-degree turn. For some the transition is so radical that they no longer continue to live the ordinary life in the ordinary way.


Because the timing is right, the outcome is assured although not from the present vantage point, predictable. In each life there comes at least one moment which, if recognised and seized, transforms the course of that life forever. Rely, therefore, on radical trust , even though the moment may call for you to leap, empty-handed, into the void. With this Rune your Warrior nature reveals itself.


If Dagaz is followed by the Blank Rune, the magnitude of the transformation might be so total as to portend a death, the successful conclusion of your passage.


A major period of achievement and prosperity is often introduced by this Rune. The darkness is behind you; daylight has come. However, as always, you are reminded not to collapse yourself into the future or to behave recklessly in your new situation. Considerable hard work can be involved in a time of transformation. Undertake to do it joyfully.

Summary.


A set of stable mates aid the restoring and even some returns even where initial income may dip to meet requirements. A clear indication of change having deep affects across the board and at every level of the reading. The caution of taking it easy in strong changes is just good advice in a disruptive environment.

A solid advance as barriers fall and thresholds are exceeded. The full picture of the reduction to established incomes after the change are in the planing stages here. This is causing a pause to get things right in view of the size of the changes coming. All actions are aimed at extending into new territories and advancing new markets to cover the slack. This will reawaken the restorative effect of the thrill of picking up and getting ahead. The disruptive environment is all the smoothness of changing horses in mid stride but well worth the effort.

Clearing up old misunderstandings, sets returns to lower landings. Taking time and ready the move, as impulses force the groove. Restoring the old mojo of old, ducking chaos with big and bold.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


Harvest (Rev NRM)/Jera.

Harvest.
Dropping Lines.

Entering into a new home, where the hearth is for the new grown
Less than expected but enough to seed, getting by doing the deed
Reduced the out-take to a trickle, the best advice when life gets fickle
Leaving room to slim down, no longer the king wearing the jesters crown.


Making more of having less, meals stretched and filled to help with the stress
Sleep becomes broken and uneven, these swings and roundabouts never land even
Taking stock and being full of mind, nothing by chance no betting blind
Rations and a budget rule the day, it won’t be like this for the rest of the way.


Stone Meaning.


A Rune of beneficial outcomes, Jera applies to any activity or endeavour to which you are committed. Be aware, however, that no quick results can be expected. A span of time is always involved; hence the key words 'one year', symbolising a full cycle before the reaping, the harvest or deliverance.


You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labour has a long season, a long coming to term, Jera offers encouragement of success. Know that the outcome is in the keeping of Providence and continue to persevere.


Remember the old story about the farmer who was so eager to assist his crops that he went out at night and tugged on the new shoots. There is no way to push the river; equally, you cannot hasten the harvest. Be mindful that patience is essential for the recognition and acceptance of your own process which, in its season, leads to the harvest of the self.


You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labour has a long season, a long coming to term, Jera offers encouragement.


Three Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Rectify:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


Challenge.


Standstill (Rev NRM)/Isa.


Standstill.
Limbering Up.

Time stands still in a pause, as light speed follows its cause
The effect is a suspension of the feelings and sensation
Of movement in the eye of the storm, free from all harm
This state of grace, is for all of the race a treasure against pace.


The hiatus it is, is the very best of biz as it awes the senses like this
To stretch the moment so, is a growth in the know paced as we go
This pause in the pace, is a small saving grace, from the haste of the race
Time to relish, the things we embellish, and have a need to cherish.


Stone Meaning.


Drawing Isa often indicates that the winter of the spiritual life is upon you. You may find your self entangled in a situation to whose implications you are, in effect blind. You may be powerless to do anything except submit, surrender or even sacrifice some long-cherished desire. Be patient, for this is the period of gestation that proceeds a rebirth.


Positive accomplishment is unlikely now. There is a freeze on useful activity, all your plans are on hold. You may be experiencing an unaccustomed drain on your energy and wonder why: a chill wind is reaching you over the ice floes of old, outmoded habits.


Trying to hold on can result in shallowness of feeling, a sense of being out of touch with life. Seek to discover what it is you are holding on to that keeps this condition in effect, and let it go. Shed, release, cleanse away the old. That will bring on the thaw.


Usually Isa requires a sacrifice of the personal 'I'. And yet there is no reason for anxiety. Submit and be still, for what you are experiencing is not necessarily the result of your actions or habits, but of the conditions of the time against which you can do nothing. What has been full must empty; what has increased must decrease. This is the way of Heaven and Earth. To surrender is to display courage and wisdom.


At such time, you cannot hope to rely on help or friendly support. In your isolation, exercise caution and do not stubbornly persist in attempting to work your will. Remain mindful that the seed of the new is present in the shell of the old, the seed of unrealised potential, the seed of the good. Trust your own process, and watch the signs for spring.

Action.


Growth/Berkana.


Growth.
Sready Application.

The seasons been kind, and the fullness of mind, left all doubt behind
New shoots showed through, then the stem stretched and grew
The delivery from the sun, was how this new growth first begun
Spring rooted in the deep, after the wake from winters sleep.


The season has moved and the rhythm is well grooved, as the path is smoothed
As weeding was done, the journey begun, from the root to the leaf in the sun
Thought the weather ain’t stable, its not the plot from a fable, of the able
From the promise in the seed, take stock strength from the feed, to complete the deed.


Stone Meaning.


Another of the Cycle Runes, Berkana denotes a form of fertility that fosters growth both symbolically and actually. The growth may occur in affairs of the world, family matters, one's relationship to one's self or to the Divine.


A Rune that leads to blossoming and ripening, Berkana is concerned with the flow of beings into their new forms. It's action is gentle , penetrating, and pervasive.


What is called for here is going into things deeply, with care and awareness. First disperse resistance, then accomplish the work. For this to happen, your will must be clear and controlled, your motives correct. Any dark corners should be cleansed; this must be carried out diligently and sometimes with expert help. Modesty, patience, fairness and generosity are called for here. Once resistance is dispersed and rectification carried out and seen to hold firm, then, through steadfastness and right attitude, the blossoming can occur.

Sacrifice.


Wholeness/Sowelu.


Wholeness.
Penultimate.

Completing the cycle or the quest, being all that you can and giving your best
The sense of feeling complete, like nectar sweet, to the very point replete
Arisen from the historic ashes, winner of many clashes, bringing home the stashes
Returns without needing lashes, the ego surviving many bashes, covering many classes.


The resurrection and return to breath, that overcomes limitations and even death
Restoration that can renew all, no fairy tail or story tall, ressurects from the fall
From the ashes arisen anew, restored to form with full due, all talents held true
Refreshed and again replete, back on form quick on the feet, destiny to meet.


Stone Meaning.


This Rune stands for wholeness, that which your nature requires. It embodies the impulse toward self-realisation and indicates the path you must follow, not from ulterior motives but from the core of your individuality.


Seeking after wholeness is the Spiritual Warrior's quest. And yet what you are striving to become in actuality is what you, by nature, already are. You must become conscious of your essence and bring it into form, express it in a creative way. A Rune of great power, making energy available to you. Sowelu marks a time for regeneration right down to the cellular level.


Although this Rune has no reversed position, there is reason for caution. You may see fit to withdraw, to retreat in the face of a pressing situation, especially if events or people are demanding that you expend your energy now. Know that such a retreat in strength, and that it can indicate the need for a voyage inward for cantering, for balance. Timely retreat is among the skills of the Spiritual Warrior.


At the same time, for some, this Rune counsels opening yourself up, letting the light into a part of your life that has been secret, shut away. To accomplish this may call for profound recognition's, for admitting to yourself something that you have long denied.


There is a prayer known as the Gayatri that embodies the spirit of Sowelu. Address the sun in this fashion:


You, who are the source of all power, Whose rays illuminate the world, Illuminate also my heart So that I can do your work.


While reciting the Gayatri, visualise the sun's rays streaming forth into the world, entering your own heart, then streaming out from your heart center and back into the world. This is a powerful and life-enhancing prayer.


There is caution here not to give yourself airs. Even in a time of bountiful energy, you are required to face and vanquish your refusal to let right action flow through you. Nourish this capacity, for it is a mark of true humility.


Practice the art of doing without doing: aim yourself truly and then maintain your aim without manipulative effort. Meditate on Christ's words: I can of mine own self do nothing. For by our own power we do nothing. Even in loving, it is Love that loves through us. This way of thinking and being integrates new energies and permits you to flow into wholeness, which is the ultimate goal of the Spiritual Warrior.

New Situation.


Disruption/Hagalaz.


Disruption.
Delays.

Chaos to the foe, boot camps heel and toe, this is how to go
Dispel and dissipate, fell lines deliver fate, to not in the know
Behind smoke screens, to coup de grâce their dreams
Terror threatens, horror strikes, while menace seams.


To play on fears, of the timid dears, is a menace ploy
That when it scoops the final prize its no child’s toy
Comms are down, the worried frown, and fret their day
No loss of life, just hike the strife, along the sappers way.


Stone Meaning.


Change, freedom, invention and liberation are all attributes of this Rune. Drawing it indicates a pressing need within the psyche to break free with constricting identification with material reality and to experience the world of archetypal mind.


The Rune of elemental disruption, of events that seem to be totally beyond your control, Hagalaz has only an upright position, and yet it always operates through reversal. When you draw this Rune, expect disruption, for it is the great awakener, although the form the awakening takes may vary. Perhaps you will experience a gradual feeling of coming to your senses, as though you were emerging from a long sleep. Then again, the onset of power may be such as to rip away the fabric of what you previously knew as your reality, your security, your understanding of yourself, your work, relationships or beliefs.


Be aware, however, that what operates here is not ultimately an outside force, not a situation of you-at-the-mercy-of-externals. Your own nature is creating what is happening, and you are not without power. The strength you have funded until now in your life is your support and guide at a time when everything you have taken for granted is being challenged.


Receiving this Rune alerts you: you may sustain loss or damage - a relationship fails, plans go awry, a source of supply dries up. But do not be dismayed; you are forewarned and, therefore, encouraged to understand and accept what occurs as necessary for your growth.


The more severe the disruption in your life, the more significant and timely the requirements for your growth. Another of the Cycle Runes, the term 'radical discontinuity' best describes the action of Hagalaz at it's most forceful. The universe and your own soul are demanding that you do, indeed, grow.

There are three runes in this group, they are symbolic of movement and with the element water. They can indicate flow if harmoniously supported by the other stones. Fluidity and steady progress, if negatively aspected diversion, disruption and rushing headlong.


The flow of life and its twists and turns are best handled in a steady stream and are a headlong rush of rapid changes dips and troughs.


Summary.


The advantage of the double spread is the facilitation of the global aiding the personal, breakthroughs with growth in action and a wholeness this is a reflection of advances in an upheaval and is clearly a steady state of change in play.

Advances and overcoming limitations in the personal is well aspected and facilitated by the global. A reduction in returns is well understood and making plans to make adjustments is just good sense. There is time to pause and make sure in the state of play. A maturation is a reaping from the job well done. A good level or restoration is a sacrifice repaid here, as some upheaval is par for the course for all the changes in play here.

Breaking out of old restrictions, reducing incomes retentions. Pausing for a time to catch up, reaping the benefits from fertilisers cup. A repair will restore, dodging the fallout may be a chore.


Short:


Making advancements, producing enhancements. Holding extents, while healing vents, through chaotic rents.


Clipped:


Advances return steady parameters unifying discord.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has four upright and two reversed mitigated stones in the presentation with three even and three odd numbered stones in the undercurrents. This gives a 7/5 split in the polarity of the reading. The slow incline of the positive over the last three readings is steady if not impressive. The stand off in the undercurrents is set against a formation in the presentation. The advantage is in the triple hand in the multiples.

There are two stable mates in the groups from Heimdall and standstill and Wholeness add to the restoring effect of the breakthrough. The groups have three hands two good and one low strength. With Disruption as the evolving outcome the environment from the global is aiding the personal advances by holding the upper hand with a strong quad of Heimdall advising caution and preparation which delivers opportunity for the personal. The tetrahedron has preparation in the pinnacle position with a trinity of caution at its base, so no fast movement more a steady progress in action. The second hand for the personal is a full house from Cycle as the charm of focus and attention and Tyr brings to the fore challenge keeping resolution to bear. The final hand is a small pair bringing satisfaction and a sense of achievement to the proceedings.

Gateway/Thurisaz.


Gateway.
New Developments.

Once passed the threshold and on the new pathway at the right pace
The whole development is about the goal and the journey not the race
Synchronicity is when circumstances conspire, to take the initiative higher
When the plot meets the plan, and produces circumstances that can.


Timing will then have to decide, from what is left to preserve and abide
Opportunity is the captain of the tide, that lets the redundant then slide
Within you and out with you is in synchronicity, is in truth just simplicity
The factual account will remain, there is less to lose than there is to gain.


Stone Meaning.


With gateway for it's symbol, this Rune indicates that there is work to be done both inside and outside yourself. The gateway is the frontier between Heaven and the mundane. Arriving here is a recognition of your readiness to contact the numerous, the Divine, to illuminate your experience so that it's meaning shines clearly through it's form.


Thurisaz is a Rune of non-action. Thus, the gateway is not to be approached and passed through without contemplation. Here you are being confronted with a true reflection of what is hidden within yourself, what must be exposed and examined before successful action can be undertaken. This Rune strengthens your ability to wait. Now is not a time to make decisions. Deep transformational forces are at work in this next-to-last of the Cycle Runes.


Visualize yourself standing before a gateway on a hilltop. Your entire life stretches out behind you and below. Before you step through, pause and review the past: the learning and the joys, the victories and the sorrows - everything it took to bring you here. Observe it all, bless it all, release it all. For in letting go of the past you reclaim your power.


Step through the gateway now.


Three Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


Summary.


A slight recline in the polarity and not quite a 50/50 split here. The reading is again an indication of movement, mixed messages and a reduction in returns.

An inner view of something already known brings a shift in perception. This is a movement without actually moving. This brings about a solid settling in comprehension, a secure understanding from the parts all fitting is a rearranging of the signals and connections to the subject, some understanding is gained and some assumptions are now redundant in the process.

Another look, not in the book, a shift is what it took. Understanding shifted gear, a perception pivot helped it steer. Securing the new understanding, on the realisations landing. Old links are left, as the new weight the heft.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


Movement/Ehwaz.


Movement.
Progressive Lines.

Transition and getting up to speed, is breaking inertia to complete the deed
Shifting gears, changing tracks, helps to show our tracking and tacking lacks
All weather and all terrain, is how the convoy will learn to gain, as a train
To shunt and manoeuvre into place, mindful making progress is no race.


A journey for the whole of the race, is taken at more than one set pace
Starting at the very source, varying paces keep the convoy to its course
An arrival at a way-station, is not as formative a rest as the destination
But time is moving and when the day is done both are places fit for fun.


Stone Meaning.


Ehwaz is a Rune of transit, transition and movement; of physical shifts, new dwelling places, new attitudes or new life. It also signifies movement in the sense of improving or bettering any situation.


There is about this Rune a sense of gradual development and steady progress, with the accompanying notion of slow growth through numerous shifts and changes. This could apply to the growth of a business or to the development of an idea. A relationship may have to undergo changes if it is to maintain growth and life. Moral effort are called for when you draw Ehwaz, another of the Cycle Runes. Let it be said this way: 'As I cultivate my own nature, all else follows'.


This Runes symbol is the horse, and it signifies the inseparable bond between horse and rider. Bronze Age artifacts show a horse drawing the sun across the sky. Here, this Rune is saying, you have progressed far enough to feel a measure of safety in your position. It is time to turn again and face the future reassured, prepared to share the good fortune that comes. The sharing is significant since it relates to the sun's power to foster life and illuminate all things with it's light.

Tyr.


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.

Water:


There are three runes in this group, they are symbolic of movement and with the element water. They can indicate flow if harmoniously supported by the other stones. Fluidity and steady progress, if negatively aspected diversion, disruption and rushing headlong.


The flow of life and its twists and turns are best handled in a steady stream and are a headlong rush of rapid changes dips and troughs.


Challenge.


Strength/Uruz.

Strength.
Blocking Tackles.

To stand against public ridicule and hate, leaves the inner being in a better state
Recovering well from every fall, recuperating to once again head the call
Surging and even burgeoning drives, are the base by which we convert lives
Changing paths and making turns, avoiding spills and stomach churns.


Recuperation after efforts is called, so that the headlong rush is stalled
No high speed blinded chases, that just detour all over the wrong places
Taking new stock from recent graces, like waking from deep space stasis
The road is clearing now life is coping, signs all show better than was hoping.


Stone Meaning.


The beast of burden willingly carries its load knowing that it will eat and sleep only when the work is complete, the beast cannot choose its master and some will be blessed with good conditions and care while others will only find harshness and continual toil.


The soul warrior will use this time to discipline the self to overcome the pettiness of self and to realise that the prevailing life conditions are random events of good and bad, easy and hard depending on the wind of fortune.


The best of people in the worst of circumstances learn the meaning of self sacrifice. The worst of people in the same circumstances do not do as well. The worst of people in the best of circumstances let their petty nature and selfish ways show through, while the best of people in the best of circumstances still show the best of their nature.


Aligning the soul with the universal goal is a demanding and arduous task, but it does have its rewards.The beast of burden willingly carries its load knowing that it will eat and sleep only when the work is complete, the beast cannot choose its master and some will be blessed with good conditions and care while others will only find harshness and continual toil.

The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Action.


Protection/Algiz.


Protection.
Initiatives.

Guarantees are an illusion as there is no safety net
Leaving the track open for to deliver our best yet
Keep safe what we have and invest it real wise
No secret ballots no useless disguise.


Knowledge and provision survivals basic kit
Practice and muster keep mind and body fit
Downtime and play sharpen and polish the wit
So the crown of vision sees clear from where you sit.


Stone Meaning.


Control of the emotions is at issue here. During times of transition, shifts in life course and accelerated self-change, it is important not to collapse yourself into your emotions - the highs as well as the lows. New opportunities and challenges are typical of this Rune. And with them may come trespasses and unwanted influences.


Algiz serves as a mirror for the Spiritual Warrior, the one whose battle is always with the self. The protection of the Warrior is like the warning rustle of the sedge grass or like the curved horns of the Elk, for both serve to keep open space around you. Remain mindful that timely action and correct conduct are the only true protection. If you find yourself feeling pain, observe the pain, stay with it. Don't try to pull down the veil and escape from life by denying what is happening. You will progress; knowing that is your protection.


Two Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


Sacrifice.


Signals (Rev)/Ansuz.


Signals.
New Connections.

The meaning sent in the knowing look, is all it took, none forsook
Radar set to wide ranger, just catnip for the stranger, no clear and present danger
Lured in, with a cocky grin, when the options are getting thin see who will win
Flash its trash, strip them in the mash, watch them burn and crash, for being flash.


Messages delivered on the quiet, all is peace not riot, a clear cost then try it
Time so precious still slips away, the land so known by its lay, the secret no one can say
Unspoken unshared, secularised to keep them cared, no thief has ever dared
Break the code of silent command, would be the ruin of the land, not what life planned.


Stone Meaning.


An adverse message, the inquirers will or purpose is at odds with the universal will or intention. The plan of the universe and the will of the great creator behind it is like the eternal river, its rush is mighty and its path is long, while the flow and will of the individual is like a tributary, that is swallowed up in the mighty flow of creations purpose.


When you re-align your plans to facilitate the universal will you will be going with the flow and will so be aided by it.


The actor in the play of life had to agree to the part before he found himself on the stage. That is the last place to start re-negotiating the part with the director, all contracts will be enforced with or without your consent. His will is undeniable. Even the body you inhabit is more unconscious than conscious. So quit struggling and enjoy the ride. What other choice do you have.

New Situation.


Fertility (Rev NRM)/Inguz.


Fertility.
Breaking Deadlocks.

Partnerships mean a wider share, to default on that is a fateful dare
The bounty is rich enough for some, with reinvestment there is more to come
Knowing when to settle the score, is how the seeding will bring much more
If goals were to highly set, the very best is to come yet, do you wanna bet.


The stores are good as our credits swell, time to break the bonds of hell
Not tied into the self defeating, stops beating chests and pointless bleating
Five years to turn the waste around, keeping it shush not even a sound
When released and now unbound, the future bright time to astound.


Stone Meaning.


This Rune is akin to the moon, the intuitive part of our nature, with it's urge toward harmonizing and adjusting in the sphere of personal relationships. Inguz embodies the need to share, the yearning to be desired, a search for similarities.


The completion of beginnings is what Inguz requires. It may mark a time of joyous deliverance, of a new life, a new path. A Rune of great power, drawing it means that you now have the strength to achieve completion, resolution, from which comes a new beginning. Above all, completion is crucial here. It may be timely that you complete some project now; if so, make that your first priority. Perhaps a difficult state of mind can be resolved, clarified, turned around. Drawing this Rune indicates that you must fertilise the ground for your own deliverance.


All things change and we cannot live permanently amid obstructions. Inguz signals your emergence from a closed chrysalis state. As you resolve and clear away the old, you will experience a release from tension and uncertainty.


You may require to free yourself from a rut, habit or relationship; from some deep cultural or behavioral pattern, some activity that was quite proper to the self that you are leaving behind. The period at or just before birth is a dangerous one. Movement involves danger, yet movement that is timely moves out of danger. Now it is time to enter the delivery room.


Another of the Cycle Runes, Inguz counsels preparation. Being centered and grounded, freeing yourself from all unwanted influences, and seeing the humour, you are indeed prepared to open yourself to the will of Heaven, and can await your deliverance with calm certainty.

Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Summary.


A flicker in the polarity with the mitigated reversed stone is like the finger in the dyke rather that a rugby scrum in a stand off. Preparation and new and getting insight and gaining knowledge is all part of this layout of stones. It does however repeat a global inclination that has been showing for the last year.

This gateway is a realisation of new insights and understandings even related to yesterdays growth. Movement is all about progress not just what is to come but a taking stock of the distance already covered. An opportunity that needs resolve and resolution as strength in challenge show. Preservation and caution play a steady support to the activities as some mixed messages and lost translations slow the actions, delays and interruptions impede returns a little but not enough to impede progress.

Finding a new way to see, as restrictions lift and being free. A steady stance against the tide, the perimeters defend on every side. Messages get lost and lines get crossed, but not all the profits will get tossed.


Short:


Seeing things in a different light, progress is gentle no in might. Security is a solid base, informed returns another case.


Clipped:


Developments progress favourably securely indicating value.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has four upright and two reversed stones one of the two is mitigated in the presentation with four odd numbered stones and two even numbered stones in the undercurrents. This mirrored parity of the positive gives the slightest advantage from the mitigated stone to a flicker in the polarity bias. With no real advantage in the polarity the strength here comes as usual from the groups.

There are seven groups present in the reading four of them are multiple groups giving a triple hand of fate, with a five of a kind square base pyramid, a full house with the pair and a triple from the pair of triples and a single three of a kind from the other one. The personal perspective has a five of a kind bringing attention and focus at the pinnacle this is insights heights and perception is key to the position, ready responsiveness and adaptability go hand in hand with the full presentation here. The global base is a full house that has Freyr in charm position in the revelation of new ways of seeing knowing and recognition in realisation, as Tyr challenges the old the outdated the redundant to strengthen the process. The final charm is Mystic and this is aiding revelation recognition and brings quick identification to redundancies as well as new insights and perceptions in the revelation process.

Absolute Extents.

Single Stone.


Present.


Growth/Berkana.


Growth.
Fleshing Extents.

To expand and to reach, where the imperative cannot teach
The surge and the push, that extends the trunk and stem to bush
A flourish in the sprung unfolding, that resistance had been holding
To stretch to the outer limit, unfolding the surge and all that’s in it.


When seasoned the sapling starts to found, a deeper connection with the ground
Spreading root to its furthest bound, giving balance a base safe and sound
Then the trunk reaches to its height, when in full foliage is a pleasant sight
Seasons turn not by the hour, providing the pre-seed visit me flower.


Stone Meaning.


Another of the Cycle Runes, Berkana denotes a form of fertility that fosters growth both symbolically and actually. The growth may occur in affairs of the world, family matters, one's relationship to one's self or to the Divine.


A Rune that leads to blossoming and ripening, Berkana is concerned with the flow of beings into their new forms. It's action is gentle , penetrating, and pervasive.


What is called for here is going into things deeply, with care and awareness. First disperse resistance, then accomplish the work. For this to happen, your will must be clear and controlled, your motives correct. Any dark corners should be cleansed; this must be carried out diligently and sometimes with expert help. Modesty, patience, fairness and generosity are called for here. Once resistance is dispersed and rectification carried out and seen to hold firm, then, through steadfastness and right attitude, the blossoming can occur.


Three Group Stone:

Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.

Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Summary.


A steady progress is happening here, the magnetics were reset and a slight incline to the positive is the first stage here. The recent strong inclination was reset and this reset is a gradual incline as opposed to a full swing. This allows small moves and steady progress over leaps and bounds.

Growth is the personal stance and advances and flexing as well as making room all play a part here. The Overview is the council view of self the collective over the personal. A development is not an easy choice but it is the right one and there are costs and losses for a better not necessarily greater gain. The movement is forward the rate is steady and the expectations are being met.

Reaching and exceeding bounds, rooting to deeper grounds. Knowing and extending self knowledge, enrolled in life’s great college. Progress is one step at a time, forwards is never a straight line. Pay the dues as they are asked, no hidden cost nothing masked. Preparation pays great dividends, wher hope wins fear ends.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


The Self/Mannaz.


The Self.
Well Possessed.

The alarm may ring and the needs may press, deserving of nothing less
As the day will demand, all the skills you command, as time trickles the sand
When the way is again clear, knowing all we hold dear, never walk in fear
Work, rest, play during the day, from the light to the dark is the way, in the ark of lifes sway.


I speak for no other than myself, as speaking for another uses stealth
Quote not what I say of me, regard how you see me be, no check no fee
A single mind is a curious kind, that in a pair you will find, leaves the old behind
But in being single is the start, that will double by the heart, to play its part.


Stone Meaning.


The self, the essence of self is formed in discipline, through moderation and tolerance we mould ourselves. Dedication and willingness to do the work of improvement are the least that is required.The Superior person anticipates and looks forward to moulding the temperament and gaining tolerance. This stone signifies the changes and growths that the self will undertake in the flow of life, these can be either self development through discipline or through the intervention of circumstances.


This stone when drawn singularly is advising the questioner to listen to their own inner voice whether it is instinct, intuition or the voice of inspiration learn to listen. The inquirer should be ready for changes or improvements but only if they are prepared to adapt to change as and when it occurs.


Enjoy the moment and delight in it's surprises and wonders.


Two Group Stone:


Rectification:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.

Gateway/Thurisaz.


Gateway.
Uphill Strides.

Not all doorways lead to where we wish, some are just not a palatable dish
The cul-de-sacs and dead ends, are the ones that will drive us round the worst bends
All openings on the same levels, take different angles plains routes and bevels
Know the doorway you need to select, and whether its just an exit or elect.


When making an exit when you need, take the cut that will help make the lead
As you look for the short way round, non of these in life can easy be found
There is no other way from ‘A’ to ‘B’, you can only get there when the route you see
Secret passages are things of the past, their appeal and need was never going to last.


Stone Meaning.


With gateway for it's symbol, this Rune indicates that there is work to be done both inside and outside yourself. The gateway is the frontier between Heaven and the mundane. Arriving here is a recognition of your readiness to contact the numerous, the Divine, to illuminate your experience so that it's meaning shines clearly through it's form.

Action.


Movement/Ehwaz.


Movement.
Steady Advances.

From stagnant to flowing, its the movement called growing
Breaking inertia after a stop, stepping back up to the hop
The flotilla is moving and the speed is pure grooving
The flow keeps us steady, till the point that we are ready.


To shift up the gear, once we are shot of the fear, to off in the clear
Front marker or even the scout, steady the pace never a doubt
Making good time after the delays, saved being lost in the wrong ways
Travel both in the day and the night, internal G.P.S overrules sight.


Stone Meaning.


Ehwaz is a Rune of transit, transition and movement; of physical shifts, new dwelling places, new attitudes or new life. It also signifies movement in the sense of improving or bettering any situation.


There is about this Rune a sense of gradual development and steady progress, with the accompanying notion of slow growth through numerous shifts and changes.

The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Tyr.


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


Water:


There are three runes in this group, they are symbolic of movement and with the element water. They can indicate flow if harmoniously supported by the other stones. Fluidity and steady progress, if negatively aspected diversion, disruption and rushing headlong.


The flow of life and its twists and turns are best handled in a steady stream and are a headlong rush of rapid changes dips and troughs.


Sacrifice.


Harvest/Jera.


The Harvest.
Surplus Distribution.

To reap rewards or get your dues, washes away all the deprivation blues
Taking time to peruse the stock, that is normally stored behind a secure lock
Avoid having to discard the spoiled, its as bad as getting your shoes soiled
Collect the cream some baked or boiled, just deserts for which you’ve toiled.


Spoils make purées and for jams, that will fill the treats and garnish the hams
Nothing in the harvest is left to waste, that decision is the choice of haste
As quantity is the calculation for the stalls, let the scales land where fortune falls
Then discretion becomes the base of good taste, as quality luxuries become well laced.


Stone Meaning.


A Rune of beneficial outcomes, Jera applies to any activity or endeavour to which you are committed. Be aware, however, that no quick results can be expected. A span of time is always involved; hence the key words 'one year', symbolising a full cycle before the reaping, the harvest or deliverance.


You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labour has a long season, a long coming to term, Jera offers encouragement of success. Know that the outcome is in the keeping of Providence and continue to persevere.


Remember the old story about the farmer who was so eager to assist his crops that he went out at night and tugged on the new shoots. There is no way to push the river; equally, you cannot hasten the harvest. Be mindful that patience is essential for the recognition and acceptance of your own process which, in its season, leads to the harvest of the self.


You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labour has a long season, a long coming to term, Jera offers encouragement.


Three Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Rectify:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


New Situation.


Defence/Eihwaz.


Defense.
Strong Front.

To give no offense, is still the very best defense
Take caution and time, then set a better line
Know the herd by its habits and its tracks
Aware of all measures and counter attacks.


The perimeter’s been walked, early advances balked
Garrison recalled and held at ready, nerves held steady
Kit at muster men drawing lines, the same as countless other times
Waiting for the call to action, with ready response no reaction.


Stone Meaning.


As we are tested we fund the power to avert blockage and defeat. At the time, we develop in ourselves an aversion to the conduct that creates stress in our lives.


If there appears to be an obstacle in your path, consider that even a delay may prove beneficial. Do not be overly eager to press forward, for this is not a situation in which you can make your influence felt. Patience is the counsel Eihwaz offers: nothing hectic, no acting needy, or lusting after a desired outcome. This Rune speaks to the difficulties that arise at the beginning of a new life. Often it announces a time of waiting - for spring to fill up with water, for fruit to ripen on the bough.


Perseverance and foresight are called for here. The ability to foresee consequences before you act is a mark of a thinking person. Avert anticipated difficulties through right action. For even more than we are doers, we are deciders. And once the decision is clear, the doing becomes effortless.


The Rune of Defense points out that, through inconvenience and discomfort, growth is promoted. For as the wood of the yew tree becomes the bow of the Spiritual Warrior, so the obstacle on your path can become the gateway to a new life unfolding.


This may well be a trying time; certainly it is a meaningful one. So set your house in order, tend to business, be clear, and wait on the will of Heaven.

Protection:

Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.

Summary.


Another drift from centre bias in the polarity here, the reading is an indication of a start, and progress even first steps. the directive is to leave the precarious and to head for a secure new base. Having taken the hard route there has to be an advantage to that in the pay off and this reading clearly states that is the case here.

Advances and fleshing out in the personal takes confidence and even boldness. The Self in the overview is the collective self of the group over the self first it is more the self also. A direction change is a challenge and is best looked at as if its too easy its not worth the effort. Forward is the only way to go here and the actions must all reflect this. Some income and even some goods may be the price here but they are not that big a price that it hurts. The New Situation indicates a strong even a secure position is coming into being with each pass of the wheel.

Expanding perimeters to extents, advances without any rents. Taking stock of new developments, not vain or seeking compliments. Some doors are now closed, and other avenues will be proposed. Advances are not hard work no play, reverse is out forward is the way. Some cost will be met along the way, on some we may even get a say. A safe harbour is on the cards, security is never left in shards.


Short:


Flourishes and extending, the collective never ending. Closing down the past, for forward movement at last. Pay the price for the right, protection is secure over might.


Clipped:


Extending focus starts advancing potential securities.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has six upright stones in the presentation with five odd and a single even stone in the undercurrents. The swing from centre is a slight 7/5 positive bias and the presentation has a clear indication of a straight read, while the undercurrents are mitigated by the stone positions making no penalty but giving no bonus either. The main advantage comes again from the multiple groups here.

There are all the groups present six of them are multiple groups. In the global there is a four of a kind quad making a tetrahedral focus with Cycle at the pinnacle of a triangular base, this focus is expansive and progressive as the Self in the global indicates. Tyr enhances preparation and endorses confidence. Rectification brings a balance and a sense of justice and appropriation while Mystic is in revelation mode and this includes updates, catchups and inspirations. The small pair in the personal give rise for a cautious joy, anticipation and even a positive outlook. A very positive set of tools to counter the near standoff in the positive bias.

The Self (Rev)/Mannaz.


The Self.
More Giving.

Mind body soul and emotion, all the thinks to give life motion
To put the drive back in the hive to let life thrive to not take the dive
Living at the edge of thrust, do as you like not as you must
Care and attention to inner being from inner focus to outer seeing.


Perceptions bring better perspective, identifying the new objective
Reform renew and then do what we do what once was solo is now two
To meet yourself coming back will throw all the unsure off the track
Centered being and cool nerves, will have the balance and the reserves.


Stone Meaning.


The unconscious at odds with the conscious purpose and intention. To be undermined by your own unconscious interference. You are now your own worst enemy.


Something will have to give.


The unconscious purpose, regulates your breath, digests your food, regulates your temperature. So guessed who will win. It does have you by the short and curliest doesn't it.


Enjoy the moment and delight in it's surprises and wonders.


Two Group Stone:


Rectification:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Summary.


There is no clear advantage here as there is a negative tip of two thirds against and a single hand of fate for both global and personal. The continuation of the key stones from yesterday and the message are so similar that the only major difference is the negative swing in polarity here.

Sacrifice is not the reversal state here, but it does indicate with breaking partnerships, breaking bonds that there is a certain amount of self interest still in the mix here. Time to take advantage of some off duty time and to drop the responsibility and to kick back for a bit.

Leaving greed, to facilitate need, the travel plans we need to heed. Travel will enforce a pause, so unwinding is actions cause. Leaving support well behind, as the warrior stands down to warm and kind.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


A Journey/Raido.

A Journey.
Departure Time.

On the eternal walk of life, as we steer a course far from strife
Keeping up with all the chat, no longer has an envelope hitting a mat
The mobile need for connection, is for catchup over protection
Knowing we are just at the end of a line, helps with feeling fine.


The line is long, and the connections strong, after a ring ring or a ding dong
To never need to feel alone or disconnected, was a byproduct not expected
The trip from first designs to present revisions, exceed the first limited versions
What was expressed in early song, would get a booby prize or a raspberry gong.


Stone Meaning.


This main concerned is with communication, with the atonement of something that has two sides, two elements, and with the ultimate reunion that comes at the end of the journey, when what is above and below are united and are again of one mind.


Inner worth mounts here, and at such a time you must remember that you are not intended to rely entirely upon your own power, but rather to ask what constitutes right action. Ask through prayer, through addressing your own knowing, the Witness Self, the teacher within. Not intent on movement, be content to wait; while you wait, keep on removing resistances. As the obstructions give way, all remorse arising from 'trying to make it happen' disappears.


The journey is toward self healing, self change and union. You are concerned here with unobstructed, perfect union. But the union of Heaven and Earth cannot be forced. Regulate any excesses in your life. Material advantages must not weigh heavily on this journey of the self toward the Self. Stand apart even from like minded others; the notion of strength in numbers does not apply, for this part of the journey cannot be shared.


Another of the Cycle Runes, Raido represents the soul's journey and has within it the element of joy, for the end is in sight. No longer burdened by what you've left behind, Heaven and Earth unite within you to support you on your way. A simple prayer for the soul's journey is:


I will to will Thy will.

Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


Challenge.


Standstill/Isa.


Standstill.
Final Queue.

Arrival is the travellers destination, though not the same in every nation
When fate picks you up and carries you on, all illusions of control are then gone
Stood still allows the moment to catch up, as refreshing as a sip from the grace cup
Deep is the sense of being humble, when fate drives it will never fumble.


Now the seat has been reached, and there’s no discrepancy to what was preached
Bringing the best of what was taught, knowing that no compromise is nothing brought
The moment demands the need for dealing, with the weight that the moment is sealing
From this new plateau the vista is grand, turning a new leaf play what comes to hand.


Stone Meaning.


Drawing Isa often indicates that the winter of the spiritual life is upon you. You may find your self entangled in a situation to whose implications you are, in effect blind. You may be powerless to do anything except submit, surrender or even sacrifice some long-cherished desire. Be patient, for this is the period of gestation that proceeds a rebirth.


Positive accomplishment is unlikely now. There is a freeze on useful activity, all your plans are on hold. You may be experiencing an unaccustomed drain on your energy and wonder why: a chill wind is reaching you over the ice floes of old, outmoded habits.


Trying to hold on can result in shallowness of feeling, a sense of being out of touch with life. Seek to discover what it is you are holding on to that keeps this condition in effect, and let it go. Shed, release, cleanse away the old. That will bring on the thaw.


Usually Isa requires a sacrifice of the personal 'I'. And yet there is no reason for anxiety. Submit and be still, for what you are experiencing is not necessarily the result of your actions or habits, but of the conditions of the time against which you can do nothing. What has been full must empty; what has increased must decrease. This is the way of Heaven and Earth. To surrender is to display courage and wisdom.


At such time, you cannot hope to rely on help or friendly support. In your isolation, exercise caution and do not stubbornly persist in attempting to work your will. Remain mindful that the seed of the new is present in the shell of the old, the seed of unrealised potential, the seed of the good. Trust your own process, and watch the signs for spring.


Single Group Stone:


Heimdall:

The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Action.


Constraint (Rev)/Nauthiz.


Constraint.
Let Loose.

Being limited and forced to go low, is not the way the ego will want to go
Not wound up or even tied and bound, but in dire need to get unwound
Held and blocked like getting locked, being closeted or even just getting stocked
Restrained or even held back, being delivered of all that freedom lacked.


Just bad luck or even timing, delivered a cloud when seeking the silver lining
Less though than full incarceration, more just a case of bad administration
Reversing a negative in the flow, is not as bad as the 'full on' negative blow
Not as bad as having the key thrown away, more weekend break than long stay.


Stone Meaning.


Pain, the tortured soul will use the agonies of trial and hardship to state, 'I am proven worthy by surviving my endeavour'. The journey of the prodigal son, is the journey of atonement.


The integration of a positive conscious, the tortured part, and the tormenting unconscious. Nine parts sadistic and one part masochistic.

Partnership (Rev)/Gebo.


Partnership.
Final Farewell.

Mind body soul and emotion, all the thinks to give life motion
To put the drive back in the hive to let life thrive to not take the dive
Living at the edge of thrust, do as you like not as you must
Care and attention to inner being from inner focus to outer seeing.


Perceptions bring better perspective, identifying the new objective
Reform renew and then do what we do what once was solo is now two
To meet yourself coming back will throw all the unsure off the track
Centered being and cool nerves, will have the balance and the reserves.


Stone Meaning.


The strength of Partnership is in union, that is to say two halves that make up a distinct whole, the old adage the sum of the parts is greater than the whole best sums up this stone.


Partnership signifies the gift of freedom out of which all other gifts flow.


For the spiritual person or disciple this stone will indicate either a congregation of like minds and goals or a new understanding is /will /was achieved.


This stone is similar to the Charioteer who struggles to balance the team of horses into a well balanced unit, except with Partnership there should be a willing and mutual union.


Single Group Stone:


Freyr:

New Situation.


The Warrior (Rev)/Teiwaz.


The Warrior.
At Ease.

A man at odds with the orders, not confined by the borders, for the elite hoarders
Resolving the issues of the day, is the finest action to be taken on the way so they say
Time to surrender to the will of the times, no more charging across demarcation lines
When the will is at odds with the need, its time to acquiesce and attend the deed.


To surrender to the universal will, is just acceptance no enemy that we need to kill
Letting go is the hardest task, its the last defenses behind the players mask
When the fight is gone, life takes over when the struggle has all been done
Once this simple choice has been made, the inner purpose will be bade.


Stone Meaning.


The adverse being at odds with himself. Watches victory slip from their hands.


The petty drives of the ego, the selfish needs of the few. The conflict of self.


Conscious and unconscious conflict. All the signs of unrest and discontent.


The conscious drive needs to be brought into alignment with the unconscious purpose, as it is the most honest part of the being, in most people.


Two Group Stone:


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Summary.


The double spread reading is shown in a negative swing with a low support from the undercurrents. The main effect is still a positive influence from the groups.

The self reversed is not all about sacrifice but it does indicate putting self interest in the mix with everyone else. The target destination of the journey is still the same but the challenges are halting progress. Being released to act accordingly and without inhibiting factors, sees contracts being broken and solo actions being taken. The new situation sees the Warrior on stand down and even stand easy as a result of the binds breaking.

Time to give back into the team, as destination are in the stream. Old ties are giving pause for thought, as binds are now good for naught. Leaving the team so it can fend, going on furlough fates best mend.


Short:


Relenting control in the flow, reveals the best way to go. Pausing to unbind the ties, show up a partners lies. Cutting agreements to end old contracts, releases the warrior from old pacts.


Clipped:


Selfless endeavours stop restraints draining downtime.

Group effects:


The swing has gone the other way in a sudden reversal of direction from the polar inclinations. The 8/4 negative bias is two thirds negative so a sense of flux is in place and a straight reading is not on the cards here. The full benefit is as usual in the single hand from the groups.

There are six groups present here five of them are pairs making a square base pyramid with Cycle at the pinnacle and the pairs in the base have another pairing set. Tyr and bold preparation has a match with Heimdall in preparation these then resonate with Protection as the charm of safety as the quad is from Freyr indicating new and even renewal to the mix. This single hand of fate reinforces the sensory level of awareness behind the groupings.

Hidden Detours.

Single Stone.


Present.


Movement/Ehwaz.


Movement.
Progression.

Transition and getting up to speed, is breaking inertia to complete the deed
Shifting gears, changing tracks, helps to show our tracking and tacking lacks
All weather and all terrain, is how the convoy will learn to gain, as a train
To shunt and manoeuvre into place, mindful making progress is no race.


A journey for the whole of the race, is taken at more than one set pace
Starting at the very source, varying paces keep the convoy to its course
An arrival at a way-station, is not as formative a rest as the destination
But time is moving and when the day is done both are places fit for fun.


Stone Meaning.


Ehwaz is a Rune of transit, transition and movement; of physical shifts, new dwelling places, new attitudes or new life. It also signifies movement in the sense of improving or bettering any situation.


There is about this Rune a sense of gradual development and steady progress, with the accompanying notion of slow growth through numerous shifts and changes. This could apply to the growth of a business or to the development of an idea. A relationship may have to undergo changes if it is to maintain growth and life. Moral effort are called for when you draw Ehwaz, another of the Cycle Runes. Let it be said this way: 'As I cultivate my own nature, all else follows'.


This Runes symbol is the horse, and it signifies the inseparable bond between horse and rider. Bronze Age artifacts show a horse drawing the sun across the sky. Here, this Rune is saying, you have progressed far enough to feel a measure of safety in your position. It is time to turn again and face the future reassured, prepared to share the good fortune that comes. The sharing is significant since it relates to the sun's power to foster life and illuminate all things with it's light.


A Four Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Tyr.


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


Water:


There are three runes in this group, they are symbolic of movement and with the element water. They can indicate flow if harmoniously supported by the other stones. Fluidity and steady progress, if negatively aspected diversion, disruption and rushing headlong.


The flow of life and its twists and turns are best handled in a steady stream and are a headlong rush of rapid changes dips and troughs.


Summary.


This is a fair split statement reading and movement and a journey all indicate moving on, meeting expectations, achieving old targets and letting go of old ways. The negative and positive balance is not in contention so is just harmony here. The split hands are an even representation of the personal and the global getting shares in the moment. Not really a progress report but a definite update to proceedings under way.

An advance even a feeling of getting someplace is a movement in the right direction here. A new destination or just the path is being considered, this is taking time out to complete. Restraints are lifting and ways and means are forming. Leaving the old by the wayside or dropping off the old load frees the attention to relax and stand easy for a while.

Closing book on a good few things, waiting to see what that destination brings. Standing down in the breaks, less restrictions open the steaks. Leaving old ties and old ways, shedding the armour for better days.

Overview.


A Journey/Raido.

A Journey.
Known Departures.

To take the trip to hop and skip through every turn and dip never letting attention slip
Best foot forward to a steady pace, it’s a journey not a contested race for first or place
A walk a saunter even a run, a varied pace is more fun, until the journey is done
The need to make up the time, means no sacrifice for memories that will still be fine.


Not a single file or caravan trail, not under pressure so the bearers bail or hightail
A sojourn to be had at every oasis, now that if not a plan is a very good basis
To set the task for the daily trip, to keep the schedule and never let it slip
Arrival will come that final day, that will show if the bearings ever lost their way.


Stone Meaning.


This main concerned is with communication, with the atonement of something that has two sides, two elements, and with the ultimate reunion that comes at the end of the journey, when what is above and below are united and are again of one mind.

Now the seat has been reached, and there’s no discrepancy to what was preached
Bringing the best of what was taught, knowing that no compromise is nothing brought
The moment demands the need for dealing, with the weight that the moment is sealing
From this new plateau the vista is grand, turning a new leaf play what comes to hand.


Stone Meaning.


Drawing Isa often indicates that the winter of the spiritual life is upon you. You may find your self entangled in a situation to whose implications you are, in effect blind. You may be powerless to do anything except submit, surrender or even sacrifice some long-cherished desire. Be patient, for this is the period of gestation that proceeds a rebirth.


Positive accomplishment is unlikely now. There is a freeze on useful activity, all your plans are on hold. You may be experiencing an unaccustomed drain on your energy and wonder why: a chill wind is reaching you over the ice floes of old, outmoded habits.


Trying to hold on can result in shallowness of feeling, a sense of being out of touch with life. Seek to discover what it is you are holding on to that keeps this condition in effect, and let it go. Shed, release, cleanse away the old. That will bring on the thaw.


Usually Isa requires a sacrifice of the personal 'I'. And yet there is no reason for anxiety. Submit and be still, for what you are experiencing is not necessarily the result of your actions or habits, but of the conditions of the time against which you can do nothing. What has been full must empty; what has increased must decrease. This is the way of Heaven and Earth. To surrender is to display courage and wisdom.


At such time, you cannot hope to rely on help or friendly support. In your isolation, exercise caution and do not stubbornly persist in attempting to work your will. Remain mindful that the seed of the new is present in the shell of the old, the seed of unrealised potential, the seed of the good. Trust your own process, and watch the signs for spring.


Single Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Action.


Constraint (Rev)/Nauthiz.


Constraint.
Gear Shifting.

Reserve is still just holding back, taking up the slack, lining up a better tack
When the bit of the bind does bite, we will all know better wrong from right
As other plays have their time to show, their mistakes inform our know
The sidelines are the school of watching, from the winners to those botching.


The disciple of the power restrained, has better time to unleash what's gained
Lessons of the patient kind, reveal others inclined, as wisdom is richly mined
As the binds and ties that do hold, limit the spontaneous or rash of the bold
Bringing warm rewards to be told, not drenched in washouts of bitter cold.


Stone Meaning.


Pain, the tortured soul will use the agonies of trial and hardship to state, 'I am proven worthy by surviving my endeavour'. The journey of the prodigal son, is the journey of atonement.


The integration of a positive conscious, the tortured part, and the tormenting unconscious. Nine parts sadistic and one part masochistic.


Two Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Sacrifice.


Separation/Uruz.

Separation.
Breaking Down.

Like taking the white from the yolk, its tricky and no joke
Now the boiler we must stoke, not end just a pig in a poke
Getting up the steam, shooting the rapids pushing the stream
Captain at the wheel, master of the trade winds deal.


Scout out on the trail, where knowledge will save or fail
Heading for the halfway camp, knowing beaming like a night lamp
Carry the lay of the land, return the missing from the planned
Fill the gaps of each others knowing, to keep it growing.


Stone Meaning.


This stone symbolises separations, divisions and partings. On one level this could signify the parting of the ways or it can also emphasise the canceling out of opposites. The equal and opposite action and re-action.


The questioner is likely being asked to let things be and to not interfere with the cosmic destiny of the present circumstances, knowing when not to take action or not rising to the devils goads to take the reigns is a skill beyond measure.


Separation calls for the letting go of ones own will and letting the higher self take you the best route for your balanced growth.


The inheritance of this action is to reap what you have sown. Just material benefits, rewards or deserts will be forthcoming in the fullness of time.


Learning to let go and ride the cosmic winds of your destiny takes greater courage than the average person has.


Two Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


New Situation.


The Warrior (Rev)/Teiwaz.


The Warrior.
Stand Ready.

The moment is focussed in being aware, hold back impulses to great care
Attention is on only what is required, holding focus beyond being tired
Placing incidental to the edge of gaze, ready to attune in a change of phase
Adapting to the needs of change, as the moment unfolds in the rearrange.


Forewarned is a state of readiness, that is managed with an easy steadiness
Prepared with arms ready to hand, but not carried as fear would’ve planned
Not in a situation to face the last stand, while at the hub of the tribe and clanned
But looking out beyond the walls, listening and watching for troubled calls.


Stone Meaning.


The adverse being at odds with himself. Watches victory slip from their hands.


The petty drives of the ego, the selfish needs of the few. The conflict of self.


Conscious and unconscious conflict. All the signs of unrest and discontent.


The conscious drive needs to be brought into alignment with the unconscious purpose, as it is the most honest part of the being, in most people.


Two Group Stone:


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Summary.


A straight trip journey and movement indicator here the swing is level from the last positive trend and has just reset the calibration here. Another indication of a separation a standing down and a liberation, constraints reversed, the Warrior on stand down.

Advances of every kind, goals, plans, hopes and needs as well as wants. A trip or a visit is on the cards maybe even a late visitor. Time out in the heat of exchanges is odd but with the right company not unthinkable. Some binds and ties as well as obligations will be relaxed as a partnership comes to term. This allows the full attention to have some down time maybe even some fun for a change.

Progress of the personal plan, taking the trip as far as it can. Leaving a lot well behind, restrictions lifted brings peace of mind. Parting from the redundant way, on stand down makes room for play.


Short:


Advances along the routes progressions, relieve the hardship of life’s lessons. Unchained and set free, some departures are meant to be. Standing down and taking time, not on duty will feel fine.


Clipped:


Progressive advances liberate restraints reducing barriers.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has four upright and two reversed stones in the presentation with a parity of four odd and two even numbered stones in the undercurrents. This is a straight forward reset to stand off with a 6/6 split and the benefits are again all in the groups.

There are seven groups present in the double spread four of them are multiple groups. There are two hands of fate here the upper is the personal with a four of a kind in Cycle the tetrahedron has concentration and focus with attention in a state of readiness. This leaves the global triple of pairs in the split hand. Tyr is all about larger odds and a state of preparation, Heimdall is focusing preparation and a little caution while the charm of being in a secure situation is the best protection here.

Lofty Overviews.

Single Stone.


Present.


Wholeness/Sowelu.


Wholeness.
Comprehensive Upgrades.

Healed restored even rejuvenated, the recovery cannot be overstated
Long time out in the broken wild, regenerated youthful not as a child
Stepping out with a new spring, now isn't that just the darnest thing
Renewed and replenished to the brim, time to get back into the swim.


Reconciled and reunited, dancing all excited, like the lost newly sighted
Prodigal to the fold once lost, never taking the time to count the cost
Returns and rewards fill the chest, and time at the last to have the best
Nothing is lost when nothing is ventured, not only a slave is indentured.


Stone Meaning.


This Rune stands for wholeness, that which your nature requires. It embodies the impulse toward self-realisation and indicates the path you must follow, not from ulterior motives but from the core of your individuality.


Seeking after wholeness is the Spiritual Warrior's quest. And yet what you are striving to become in actuality is what you, by nature, already are. You must become conscious of your essence and bring it into form, express it in a creative way. A Rune of great power, making energy available to you. Sowelu marks a time for regeneration right down to the cellular level.


Although this Rune has no reversed position, there is reason for caution. You may see fit to withdraw, to retreat in the face of a pressing situation, especially if events or people are demanding that you expend your energy now. Know that such a retreat in strength, and that it can indicate the need for a voyage inward for cantering, for balance. Timely retreat is among the skills of the Spiritual Warrior.


At the same time, for some, this Rune counsels opening yourself up, letting the light into a part of your life that has been secret, shut away. To accomplish this may call for profound recognition's, for admitting to yourself something that you have long denied.


There is a prayer known as the Gayatri that embodies the spirit of Sowelu. Address the sun in this fashion:


You, who are the source of all power, Whose rays illuminate the world, Illuminate also my heart So that I can do your work.


While reciting the Gayatri, visualise the sun's rays streaming forth into the world, entering your own heart, then streaming out from your heart center and back into the world. This is a powerful and life-enhancing prayer.


There is caution here not to give yourself airs. Even in a time of bountiful energy, you are required to face and vanquish your refusal to let right action flow through you. Nourish this capacity, for it is a mark of true humility.


Practice the art of doing without doing: aim yourself truly and then maintain your aim without manipulative effort. Meditate on Christ's words: I can of mine own self do nothing. For by our own power we do nothing. Even in loving, it is Love that loves through us. This way of thinking and being integrates new energies and permits you to flow into wholeness, which is the ultimate goal of the Spiritual Warrior.


Single Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Summary.


The double spread is a good report of inner shifts and a healing in a safe place with minimal contact but it is not a complete quarantine on shut down or withdrawal. A three quarters positive slant aids the presentation as it shows, the undercurrent aid the tone of the inclination of the reading here.

A time out, a small break or even just rest and relaxation are indicated from the personal twin. Time is slow and movement restricted even time off or out of the flow. This pushes contacts and connections to the side for a while. This is a really secure time and it is all set in an easy atmosphere. The second twin is restoring and renewing and this is a small sacrifice for the global to the personal, even just cutting slack for a change. The new situation is all about the returns, the immersion and the results are all emotively good for a change.

Time for the box set or catchup, resting renews on the up. Duty call for the other half, you laid up them at the gaff. Perimeters and patrols are not needed, restoring the strength that rest has seeded. Elation and satisfaction are endeavour pay, soon will be time to play.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


Standstill/Isa.


Standstill.
On Point.

Arrival is the travellers destination, though not the same in every nation
When fate picks you up and carries you on, all illusions of control are then gone
Stood still allows the moment to catch up, as refreshing as a sip from the grace cup
Deep is the sense of being humble, when fate drives it will never fumble.


Now the seat has been reached, and there’s no discrepancy to what was preached
Bringing the best of what was taught, knowing that no compromise is nothing brought
The moment demands the need for dealing, with the weight that the moment is sealing
From this new plateau the vista is grand, turning a new leaf play what comes to hand.

The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Challenge.


Partnership (Rev)/Gebo.


Partnership.
Two Paths.

Mind body soul and emotion, all the thinks to give life motion
To put the drive back in the hive to let life thrive to not take the dive
Living at the edge of thrust, do as you like not as you must
Care and attention to inner being from inner focus to outer seeing.


Perceptions bring better perspective, identifying the new objective
Reform renew and then do what we do what once was solo is now two
To meet yourself coming back will throw all the unsure off the track
Centered being and cool nerves, will have the balance and the reserves.


Stone Meaning.


The strength of Partnership is in union, that is to say two halves that make up a distinct whole, the old adage the sum of the parts is greater than the whole best sums up this stone.


Partnership signifies the gift of freedom out of which all other gifts flow.


For the spiritual person or disciple this stone will indicate either a congregation of like minds and goals or a new understanding is /will /was achieved.


This stone is similar to the Charioteer who struggles to balance the team of horses into a well balanced unit, except with Partnership there should be a willing and mutual union.


Single Group Stone:


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Action.


Defence/Eihwaz.


Defense.
Good Deflection.

To give no offense, is still the very best defense
Take caution and time, then set a better line
Know the herd by its habits and its tracks
Aware of all measures and counter attacks.


The perimeter’s been walked, early advances balked
Garrison recalled and held at ready, nerves held steady
Kit at muster men drawing lines, the same as countless other times
Waiting for the call to action, with ready response no reaction.


Stone Meaning.


As we are tested we fund the power to avert blockage and defeat. At the time, we develop in ourselves an aversion to the conduct that creates stress in our lives.


If there appears to be an obstacle in your path, consider that even a delay may prove beneficial. Do not be overly eager to press forward, for this is not a situation in which you can make your influence felt. Patience is the counsel Eihwaz offers: nothing hectic, no acting needy, or lusting after a desired outcome. This Rune speaks to the difficulties that arise at the beginning of a new life. Often it announces a time of waiting - for spring to fill up with water, for fruit to ripen on the bough.


Perseverance and foresight are called for here. The ability to foresee consequences before you act is a mark of a thinking person. Avert anticipated difficulties through right action. For even more than we are doers, we are deciders. And once the decision is clear, the doing becomes effortless.


The Rune of Defense points out that, through inconvenience and discomfort, growth is promoted. For as the wood of the yew tree becomes the bow of the Spiritual Warrior, so the obstacle on your path can become the gateway to a new life unfolding.


This may well be a trying time; certainly it is a meaningful one. So set your house in order, tend to business, be clear, and wait on the will of Heaven.


Four Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


Rectification:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


Sacrifice.


Wholeness/Sowelu.


Wholeness.
Recollection.

Healed restored even rejuvenated, the recovery cannot be overstated
Long time out in the broken wild, regenerated youthful not as a child

Renewed and replenished to the brim, time to get back into the swim.


Reconciled and reunited, dancing all excited, like the lost newly sighted

New Situation.


Joy/Wunjo.


Joy.
Elevated Satisfaction.

Elation and all its stages, as the feelings swell to ecstatic rages
The expanse of feeling to their edge, takes elevation to the next ledge
Filled with splendour or with awe, by all that’s felt by more than saw
Raises awareness to its best, of all the feeling in hopes great chest.


Accomplished, arrived, achieved and more, felt right to our very core
Both feet now back on ground, after elevation soared to new found
A settling in a sense of win, release from burden beyond all spin
To fulfil the faith that others invest, raises us to our very best.


Stone Meaning.


Like a fruit bearing branch is a welcome find to the hungry traveler. The term of travail is ended and you have come to yourself in some regard. The shift that was due has occurred and now you can freely receive Wunjo's blessings, whether they be in material gain, in your emotional life or in a heightened sense and awareness of your own well - being.


This is an alchemical moment in which understanding is transmuted from knowledge. The knowledge itself was a necessary but not sufficient condition; now you can rejoice, having been carried across the gap by the Will of Heaven.


Joyousness accompanies new energy, energy blocked before now. Light pierces the clouds and touches the waters just as something lovely emerges from the depths: the soul is illuminated from within, at the meeting place of Heaven and Earth, the meeting of the waters.


There is new clarity which may call for you to renounce existing plans, ambitions, goals. It is proper and timely for you to do so, for Wunjo is a Rune of Restoration, of the self properly aligned to the Self.


Two Group Stone:


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Summary.


A twin stone reading that is three quarters positive with a strong upper hand and a weak split hand of fate in the groups. There is no clear advantage to the personal and the global is enacting rather than dictating.

Restoration is a personal statement with standstill still the recuperation stance of the reclined. Isolation and time on our own is what healing and recuperation are all about. Limited visitors as we get back on our feet and partnerships are being manned by the other half while laid up. A strong and safe environment is the action in this spread. The twin to recuperation is aiming for healing. The new situation will be various kinds of pleasure and satisfaction will be the least of them.

Returned and renewed, patience is a little skewed. Time to leave the weight to the other, safe harbours are little bother. The twin restores and renews, and the elated response is all good news.


Short:


Well restored, patiently bored. Separating follows the lay, safely on the easy way. Repairing and healing, where enjoyment is healing.


Clipped:


Concentrating steady solitude ensures complete satisfaction.

Summary.


Another straight forward report for the day based on the decisions taken here the commitment to the change is becoming settled, the scripts are forming patterns and the positive negative inclination is consistent.

The convalescence is nearly over as the physio takes hold and its a case of getting back on the horse. Attention and focus are key to keeping up with the program, advances are all measured and steady. A secure retreat is in place after the effort and it still forces a travel light and only what is needed program of action.

Energy levels are getting better, the warrior on point like a trained setter. Slowing down to be more precise, growth is not divvied by the slice. A safe and secure pace to start, carry things forward part by part.

The Warrior (Rev)/Teiwaz.


The Warrior.
Taking Leave.

A man at odds with the orders, not confined by the borders, for the elite hoarders
Resolving the issues of the day, is the finest action to be taken on the way so they say
Time to surrender to the will of the times, no more charging across demarcation lines
When the will is at odds with the need, its time to acquiesce and attend the deed.


To surrender to the universal will, is just acceptance no enemy that we need to kill
Letting go is the hardest task, its the last defenses behind the players mask
When the fight is gone, life takes over when the struggle has all been done
Once this simple choice has been made, the inner purpose will be bade.


Stone Meaning.


The adverse being at odds with himself. Watches victory slip from their hands.


The petty drives of the ego, the selfish needs of the few. The conflict of self.


Conscious and unconscious conflict. All the signs of unrest and discontent.


The conscious drive needs to be brought into alignment with the unconscious purpose, as it is the most honest part of the being, in most people.


Two Group Stone:


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Challenge.


Flow/Laguz.


Flow.
Steady Pressure.

Where it starts out no one knows, nor what way it will proceed or even where it goes
The way they say is all in the day, that winds and turns throughout its fray
It trickles then meanders or may even gush, up to speeds that gives a rush
Blockages will be swept away, as all that force of volume holds its sway.


When the flow meanders by, giving time to stop replace and even shop or buy
Time trickles in a lazy dance, giving people that old catch up chance to dance
So when the course starts to speed, and most are sated by some fulfilled need
The watch and crew will stand to, knowing that replenished leaves lots still to do.


Stone Meaning.


Unseen powers are at work here, powers that nourish, shape and connect. The attributes of this Rune are water, fluidity, the ebb and flow of emotions, of vocations and relationships. Laguz supports your desire to immerse yourself in the experience of living without having to evaluate or understand. It speaks to the satisfaction of emotional needs, to the awakening of the intuitive or lunar side of your nature. For while the sun strives for differentiation, the moon draws us toward union and merging.


This Rune often signals a time for cleansing: for revaluing, reorganising, re-aligning. A Rune of deep knowing, Laguz may call you to study spiritual matters in readiness for self transformation. Success now lies in contacting your Intuitive Knowing, in attuning to your own rhythms. A Rune of the self relating rightly to the Self, Laguz signifies what alchemists called conjunction, or sacred marriage. In fairy tales, it is the end where the hero and heroine live happily ever after.


Three Group Stone:


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.

Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Water.


There are three runes in this group, they are symbolic of movement and with the element water. They can indicate flow if harmoniously supported by the other stones. Fluidity and steady progress, if negatively aspected diversion, disruption and rushing headlong.


The flow of life and its twists and turns are best handled in a steady stream and are a headlong rush of rapid changes dips and troughs.


Action.


Growth/Berkana.


Growth.
Reaching Extents.

News of this type of spurt, are the growing pains that are said not to hurt
A creeping slow and agonising gain, is the well know sort of growing pain
Like the agony from a failing tooth, that lingers and aches right to the dentist booth
This growth that we are now under, is the kind that brings acts of wonder.


No pain from gain or lash or chain, wont even bleed or better leave a stain
All plans are now well past needed, its time to get back to what was seeded
The trellis that is used to prop and aid, when served their use they will fade
Time now to send out the call, for this nation finally needs us one and all.


Stone Meaning.


Another of the Cycle Runes, Berkana denotes a form of fertility that fosters growth both symbolically and actually. The growth may occur in affairs of the world, family matters, one's relationship to one's self or to the Divine.


A Rune that leads to blossoming and ripening, Berkana is concerned with the flow of beings into their new forms. It's action is gentle , penetrating, and pervasive.


What is called for here is going into things deeply, with care and awareness. First disperse resistance, then accomplish the work. For this to happen, your will must be clear and controlled, your motives correct. Any dark corners should be cleansed; this must be carried out diligently and sometimes with expert help. Modesty, patience, fairness and generosity are called for here. Once resistance is dispersed and rectification carried out and seen to hold firm, then, through steadfastness and right attitude, the blossoming can occur.


Three Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Sacrifice.


Protection/Algiz.


Protection.
Safe Ground.

A shield is the armour that meets the strike
Armour has a price to pay on the long hike
To cover every inch of the body is possible
Being fleet of foot in armour is just impossible.


A vigil of mind is set to keep safe, all that cost dear
To value and preserve, without a shadow of fear
This is the discipline or the script for the day
So treading carefully, nothing is lost along the way.


Stone Meaning.


Control of the emotions is at issue here. During times of transition, shifts in life course and accelerated self-change, it is important not to collapse yourself into your emotions - the highs as well as the lows. New opportunities and challenges are typical of this Rune. And with them may come trespasses and unwanted influences.


Algiz serves as a mirror for the Spiritual Warrior, the one whose battle is always with the self. The protection of the Warrior is like the warning rustle of the sedge grass or like the curved horns of the Elk, for both serve to keep open space around you. Remain mindful that timely action and correct conduct are the only true protection. If you find yourself feeling pain, observe the pain, stay with it. Don't try to pull down the veil and escape from life by denying what is happening. You will progress; knowing that is your protection.


Two Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


New Situation.


Possessions/Fehu.


Possessions.
Ownership.

To posses to own and keep, held by the need from greed running deep
The trinkets we adorn our dwelling, bought from the needy in their selling
Are the heirlooms we seek to leave, as they represent what we did achieve
When new life calls out the another way, we sell them for a better day.


This cycle complete and fulfilled, is the furrow of the new being tilled
Keeping only what we feel we use, all the rest others will pick and choose
Some the victim of envies muse, as in misdirection these we will lose
Even though we cant take them with us, makes you think what's all this fuss.


Stone Meaning.


Fehu is a Rune of fulfillment: ambition satisfaction, love fulfilled, rewards received. It promises nourishment, from the most worldly to the most sacred and Divine. Moreover, if the ancient hermetic principle 'As above so below' is true, then we are also here to nourish God.


This Rune calls for a deep probing of the meaning of profit and gain in your life. Look with care to know whether it is wealth and possessions you require for your well-being, or rather self - rule and the growth of a will.


Another concern of Fehu is conserving what has already been gained. It urges vigilance and continual mindfulness, especially in times of good fortune, for it is then that we are likely to collapse ourselves into our success on the one hand, or to behave recklessly on the other. Enjoy your good fortune and remember to share it; the mark of the well nourished self is the willingness and ability to nourish others.


Two Group Stone:


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Rectification:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


Summary.


Another indicator of adjusting speed and recuperation and it is all to the good as the outcome action and the overview all indicate here.

Wholeness is the final part of recuperation, and getting up and making efforts slow is the pace and the gains will be incremental to input. A steady attention to detail and a good focus are needed in the speed changes to the flow of events. This has a growth benefit to experience and action is the best tutor in the mix at the front end. There is a sense of safety and of sticking within the parameters and not pushing the limits to show off or to score points. Travelling light in heavy action is for this layout just par for the course.

The recuperation is in recovery here, the attention watches all that’s dear, the speed shift is becoming clear, the final extents are getting near. A charm defends the move and place, and storage is limited to travel space.


Short:


Restoring and in renewal, as the guard must still review all. Momentum still carries forward, growth fills out rather than upwards. Safe ground is a solid base, storage is as small as a case.


Clipped:


Restoring attention directives extend enclosures containments.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has five upright and a single reversed stone in the presentation with an even split three even and three odd numbered stones in the undercurrents. This positive swing 8/4 leaning continues the trend of the past week the two thirds inclination is a strong indication of presentation integrity here. The advantage is clearly in the global while the self is not being denied it is not he centre of attention in the events.

There are nine that’s the full compliment of groups present in the reading with only three multiple groups in the mix here. There is only a single hand of fate and they are advisory actions and stances for the self so the global is dictating the play. Tyr is all bold and standing up to greater odds as the triple charm in the full house of the hand of fate, that leaves Heimdalls preparation and Caution as Protection indicates a safe starting point as progress is aimed for here. As growth in action indicates.

The Warrior/Teiwaz.


The Warrior.
Forewarned, Forearmed.

Capable practiced and assured, formed and tempered from strife endured
To martial to the bugle’s call, braving hostile fire where the others fall
Knowing who it is that has your back, to know you are not on your jack
Not keeping any troubles in your sack, never picking on what others lack.


Taking the test of time to forge the metal, finding a spring in your fettle
Respecting memory in the poppy petal, overbearing numbers never settle
To toe the line and complete the march, higher feelings just have to parch
Quenching the must of need in the now, unbeaten when learning how.


Stone Meaning.


This is the symbol of the Spiritual Warrior. Always the battle for the Spiritual Warrior is with the self. Funding a will through action yet unattached to outcomes, able to be radically alone, remaining mindful that all you can really do is stay out of your own way and let the will of Heaven flow through you - these are among the hallmarks of the Spiritual warrior.


Embodied in this Rune is the energy of discrimination, the sword like quality that enables you to cut away the old, the dead the extraneous. And yet, with Teiwaz comes certain knowledge that the universe always has the first move. Patience is the virtue of this Rune, and it recalls the words of St Augustine that the reward of patience is patience.


Here, you are asked to look within, to delve down to the foundations of your life it's self. Only in so doing can you hope to deal with the deepest needs of your nature and to tap into your most profound resources. The moulding of character is at issue when Teiwaz appears in your spread.


Associated with this Rune are the sun. masculine energy, the active principle. The urge toward conquests prominent here, especially self conquest, which is a life long pursuit and calls for awareness, single-mindedness and the willingness to undergo your passage with compassion and in total trust.


In issues of relationship, devotion to a cause, an idea or a path of conduct, the warrior Rune counsels perseverance, although the kind of perseverance required is patience.


Teiwaz is a Rune of courage and dedication. In ancient times it was this glyph that warriors painted on their shields before battle. Now, the same symbol strengthens your resolve in the struggle of Self with Self.


Two Group Stone:


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Summary.


A really strong benefit for the self and the group here as constraint suggest in the outcome, the clear advantage is to the group and the individual will prosper in the process. Another daily report rather than a reading as the season suggests after the harvest is in time to return to repairs and upgrades as the slow winter blanket makes snuggling and settling in a way of life till the spring.

The Spiritual Warrior shows a development in the self here as advances are made, growths are found and thresholds have been exceeded. Being less defensive is a seasonal thing after the harvest is in and stored. The sense of obligation and the binds that restrict are there but with less impact.

Not on guard but well aware, new developments are taken with care. Divvying up the work but still in touch, storing all till the stores bust. Letting down the guard, but some ties are still holding hard.


Five Stone Spread.

Growth/Berkana.


Growth.
Setting Parameters.

News of this type of spurt, are the growing pains that are said not to hurt
A creeping slow and agonising gain, is the well know sort of growing pain
Like the agony from a failing tooth, that lingers and aches right to the dentist booth
This growth that we are now under, is the kind that brings acts of wonder.


No pain from gain or lash or chain, wont even bleed or better leave a stain
All plans are now well past needed, its time to get back to what was seeded
The trellis that is used to prop and aid, when served their use they will fade
Time now to send out the call, for this nation finally needs us one and all.


Stone Meaning.


Another of the Cycle Runes, Berkana denotes a form of fertility that fosters growth both symbolically and actually. The growth may occur in affairs of the world, family matters, one's relationship to one's self or to the Divine.


A Rune that leads to blossoming and ripening, Berkana is concerned with the flow of beings into their new forms. It's action is gentle , penetrating, and pervasive.


What is called for here is going into things deeply, with care and awareness. First disperse resistance, then accomplish the work.

The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Tyr:

Challenge.


Separation/Uruz.

Separation.
Parting Ways.

Like taking the white from the yolk, its tricky and no joke
Now the boiler we must stoke, not end just a pig in a poke
Getting up the steam, shooting the rapids pushing the stream
Captain at the wheel, master of the trade winds deal.


Scout out on the trail, where knowledge will save or fail
Heading for the halfway camp, knowing beaming like a night lamp
Carry the lay of the land, return the missing from the planned
Fill the gaps of each others knowing, to keep it growing.


Stone Meaning.


This stone symbolises separations, divisions and partings. On one level this could signify the parting of the ways or it can also emphasise the canceling out of opposites. The equal and opposite action and re-action.


The questioner is likely being asked to let things be and to not interfere with the cosmic destiny of the present circumstances, knowing when not to take action or not rising to the devils goads to take the reigns is a skill beyond measure.


Separation calls for the letting go of ones own will and letting the higher self take you the best route for your balanced growth.


The inheritance of this action is to reap what you have sown. Just material benefits, rewards or deserts will be forthcoming in the fullness of time.


Learning to let go and ride the cosmic winds of your destiny takes greater courage than the average person has.

Action.


Harvest/Jera.


The Harvest.
Taking Care Of Business.

To reap rewards or get your dues, washes away all the deprivation blues
Taking time to peruse the stock, that is normally stored behind a secure lock
Avoid having to discard the spoiled, its as bad as getting your shoes soiled
Collect the cream some baked or boiled, just deserts for which you’ve toiled.


Spoils make purées and for jams, that will fill the treats and garnish the hams
Nothing in the harvest is left to waste, that decision is the choice of haste
As quantity is the calculation for the stalls, let the scales land where fortune falls
Then discretion becomes the base of good taste, as quality luxuries become well laced.


Stone Meaning.


A Rune of beneficial outcomes, Jera applies to any activity or endeavour to which you are committed. Be aware, however, that no quick results can be expected. A span of time is always involved; hence the key words 'one year', symbolising a full cycle before the reaping, the harvest or deliverance.


You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labour has a long season, a long coming to term, Jera offers encouragement of success. Know that the outcome is in the keeping of Providence and continue to persevere.


Remember the old story about the farmer who was so eager to assist his crops that he went out at night and tugged on the new shoots. There is no way to push the river; equally, you cannot hasten the harvest. Be mindful that patience is essential for the recognition and acceptance of your own process which, in its season, leads to the harvest of the self.


You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labour has a long season, a long coming to term, Jera offers encouragement.


Three Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Rectify:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


Sacrifice.


Defence/Eihwaz.


Defense.
Skeleton Crew.

To give no offense, is still the very best defense
Take caution and time, then set a better line
Know the herd by its habits and its tracks
Aware of all measures and counter attacks.


The perimeter’s been walked, early advances balked
Garrison recalled and held at ready, nerves held steady
Kit at muster men drawing lines, the same as countless other times
Waiting for the call to action, with ready response no reaction.


Stone Meaning.


As we are tested we fund the power to avert blockage and defeat. At the time, we develop in ourselves an aversion to the conduct that creates stress in our lives.


If there appears to be an obstacle in your path, consider that even a delay may prove beneficial. Do not be overly eager to press forward, for this is not a situation in which you can make your influence felt. Patience is the counsel Eihwaz offers: nothing hectic, no acting needy, or lusting after a desired outcome. This Rune speaks to the difficulties that arise at the beginning of a new life. Often it announces a time of waiting - for spring to fill up with water, for fruit to ripen on the bough.


Perseverance and foresight are called for here. The ability to foresee consequences before you act is a mark of a thinking person. Avert anticipated difficulties through right action. For even more than we are doers, we are deciders. And once the decision is clear, the doing becomes effortless.


The Rune of Defense points out that, through inconvenience and discomfort, growth is promoted. For as the wood of the yew tree becomes the bow of the Spiritual Warrior, so the obstacle on your path can become the gateway to a new life unfolding.


This may well be a trying time; certainly it is a meaningful one. So set your house in order, tend to business, be clear, and wait on the will of Heaven.


Four Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


Rectification:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


New Situation.


Constraint/Nauthiz.


Constraint.
Rule Bound.

Well we’ll be bound by ties from the old
If we kowtow instead of being just bold
Like handcuffs to bind and dominate the play
Some outdated things should just fade away.


No Island like these can manage all on their own
There are things to exchange and others grown
History has lessons that we need to learn better from
No place to go to without knowing from where do we come.


Stone Meaning.


The necessity of dealing with sever constraint is the lesson of Nauthiz. The positive aspects of this Rune represent the limitations we directly cause ourselves. Its negative side attracts limitations from those around us. Both can be equally difficult to handle.


The role of Nauthiz is to identify our 'shadow', our dark or repressed side, areas where growth has been stunted, resulting in weaknesses that we project onto others. Don't take this world personally, this Rune is saying. Work with the shadow, examine inside you what magnetises misfortune into your life. When at last you can look on Nauthiz with a smile, you will recognise the troubles, denials and setbacks of life as your teachers, guides and allies.


The need for restraint is unquestionable here. Drawing this Rune indicates that there will be holdups, reasons to reconsider your plans carefully. There is work to be done on your self. So take it on with good will and show perseverance.


This is a time to pay of old debts, to restore, if not harmony, at least balance. So mend, restore, redress; when fishermen cant go to sea they repair nets. Let the constraints of this time serve you in righting your relationship to your self. Be mindful that rectification comes before progress. And once again consider the uses of adversity.


Two Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Summary.


Another no twin reading that is still on the positive swing and the group trident is a solid boost of two charms making three houses to aid the flow.

The Warrior is set to a state of readiness and preparation even experience will be the foundation here. Growth is now no longer about growing up but filling our, even fleshing out. This will have an effect of segregation and appropriating, as the work on the seed for the next crop is in action. There is a small sacrifice in lowering defenses but not in times of peace. We are all confined by the obligations and the agreements we make and have to live up to or pay into to keep the wheels well greased.

Keeping attention focused and ready, extents are reached in the nice and steady. Splitting the team is the state of play, the returns will still go a long way. Standing down frees the flow, as the leash holds the lengths to go.


Short:


Stood ready and more than able, growing to extents not set by fable. Leaving work on filling the store, setting barriers is a chore, as the leash restricts going for more.


Clipped:


Attentions extents segregate protected returns limitations.

Group effects:


The double spread reading has six upright stones in the presentation with two even numbered and four odd numbered stones in the undercurrents. The positive 8/4 two thirds positive inclination is in keeping with the positive trend of late.This statement is again about dealing with the script from actions taken like the last set of readings the positive swing is still in place fluctuating from two thirds to three quarters if not just hovering in the vicinity. Again the advantage is from the groups here.

There are seven groups present six of them are multiple groups giving a triple prong to the hands of fate for the strongest hands in play. With a triple of triples and a triple of pairs the three full houses they give a distinct one for the personal one for the global and an interim bind from the middle prong of this trident in action. Cycle heads up the personal charm with Protection bringing attention and focus to a state of security. Heimdall and Rectification unite in a house of preparation and restitution in the global position. Tyr and Joy unite a house of intermediate interaction between the global and personal with a bold and prepared charm focussing elation, reward satisfaction as the directive from the pair. The indication here is to use the constraints and to play to the limits even underplaying to allow momentum to carry.

The way they say is all in the day, that winds and turns throughout its fray
It trickles then meanders or may even gush, up to speeds that gives a rush
Blockages will be swept away, as all that force of volume holds its sway.


When the flow meanders by, giving time to stop replace and even shop or buy
Time trickles in a lazy dance, giving people that old catch up chance to dance
So when the course starts to speed, and most are sated by some fulfilled need
The watch and crew will stand to, knowing that replenished leaves lots still to do.


Stone Meaning.


Unseen powers are at work here, powers that nourish, shape and connect. The attributes of this Rune are water, fluidity, the ebb and flow of emotions, of vocations and relationships. Laguz supports your desire to immerse yourself in the experience of living without having to evaluate or understand. It speaks to the satisfaction of emotional needs, to the awakening of the intuitive or lunar side of your nature. For while the sun strives for differentiation, the moon draws us toward union and merging.


This Rune often signals a time for cleansing: for revaluing, reorganising, re-aligning. A Rune of deep knowing, Laguz may call you to study spiritual matters in readiness for self transformation. Success now lies in contacting your Intuitive Knowing, in attuning to your own rhythms. A Rune of the self relating rightly to the Self, Laguz signifies what alchemists called conjunction, or sacred marriage. In fairy tales, it is the end where the hero and heroine live happily ever after.


Three Group Stone:


Mystic:


This is a group of eight runes that are specifically associated with progression in magic, aid in magic, and psychic development. They can be a guard, a charm in effect or indicating a spell in action or even an illusion in events. Not all can be seen when this is in effect.


As indicated by other stones in the layout as to whether caution is needed, or an illusion or spell is in effect for or against the questioner.

Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Water.


There are three runes in this group, they are symbolic of movement and with the element water. They can indicate flow if harmoniously supported by the other stones. Fluidity and steady progress, if negatively aspected diversion, disruption and rushing headlong.


The flow of life and its twists and turns are best handled in a steady stream and are a headlong rush of rapid changes dips and troughs.


Summary.


There is no real advantage to the reading for the global or the personal, but there will be no serious loss as some goods are sold and others bought. The question in the overview is answered in action. With possessions in challenge and the harvest reversed in sacrifice is a negative negative which is positive in output, despite how it seems at first glance.

After all that downtime movement is in the flow and is settling into a reasonable pace. Memberships are being assessed and the cost is just too rich for the blood. Some property and even assumed ground will be lost here. This will cause a natural drift in relations and dealings. The effect in some returns is just a natural downgrading. Most of the investments and preparations are a good defense against loss and drains.

A steady pace is settling in here, membership fees are just too dear, as old ties we start to clear. Some discards are in the offing, agree to part without any scoffing. Returns are from the swings and roundabouts, the defenses stand raising shouts.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.


Partnership/Gebo.


Partnership.
Solo Satellites.

For a union that can work as a team, either coasting or sauntering or full steam
In the unstated mutual knowing, no need for catchup just keep showing
Each on the mark with the spark, on their task doing their thing to get that bling
There is no divvy when we just share, not just the risks the dare of winners glare.


Each carries the team so if one falls, we brace the deficit as the duty calls
When all in we know the play, there might be nought for that rainy day
As we put more in than we take, we know its all for the greater sake
When one is down we rally round, by this bond we will all be bound.


Stone Meaning.


The strength of Partnership is in union, that is to say two halves that make up a distinct whole, the old adage the sum of the parts is greater than the whole best sums up this stone.


Partnership signifies the gift of freedom out of which all other gifts flow.


For the spiritual person or disciple this stone will indicate either a congregation of like minds and goals or a new understanding is /will /was achieved.


This stone is similar to the Charioteer who struggles to balance the team of horses into a well balanced unit, except with Partnership there should be a willing and mutual union.


Single Group Stone:


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Challenge.


Possessions/Fehu.


Possessions.
Lighter Load.

To posses to own and keep, held by the need from greed running deep
The trinkets we adorn our dwelling, bought from the needy in their selling
Are the heirlooms we seek to leave, as they represent what we did achieve
When new life calls out the another way, we sell them for a better day.


This cycle complete and fulfilled, is the furrow of the new being tilled
Keeping only what we feel we use, all the rest others will pick and choose
Some the victim of envies muse, as in misdirection these we will lose
Even though we cant take them with us, makes you think what's all this fuss.


Stone Meaning.


Fehu is a Rune of fulfillment: ambition satisfaction, love fulfilled, rewards received. It promises nourishment, from the most worldly to the most sacred and Divine. Moreover, if the ancient hermetic principle 'As above so below' is true, then we are also here to nourish God.


This Rune calls for a deep probing of the meaning of profit and gain in your life. Look with care to know whether it is wealth and possessions you require for your well-being, or rather self - rule and the growth of a will.


Another concern of Fehu is conserving what has already been gained. It urges vigilance and continual mindfulness, especially in times of good fortune, for it is then that we are likely to collapse ourselves into our success on the one hand, or to behave recklessly on the other. Enjoy your good fortune and remember to share it; the mark of the well nourished self is the willingness and ability to nourish others.


Two Group Stone:


Freyr:


This eight grouping is most associated with growth renewal, new starts and first growths. A transition or development process in action. Two or more are beneficial for new starts and beginnings.


Growth and renewal, new starts and first shoots appearing. A transition or development process in action. A coming of age, even a rite of passage could be indicated by these stones.


Rectification:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


Action.


Separation/Uruz.

Separation.
Splitting Shares.

Like taking the white from the yolk, its tricky and no joke
Now the boiler we must stoke, not end just a pig in a poke
Getting up the steam, shooting the rapids pushing the stream
Captain at the wheel, master of the trade winds deal.


Scout out on the trail, where knowledge will save or fail
Heading for the halfway camp, knowing beaming like a night lamp
Carry the lay of the land, return the missing from the planned
Fill the gaps of each others knowing, to keep it growing.


Stone Meaning.


This stone symbolises separations, divisions and partings. On one level this could signify the parting of the ways or it can also emphasise the canceling out of opposites. The equal and opposite action and re-action.


The questioner is likely being asked to let things be and to not interfere with the cosmic destiny of the present circumstances, knowing when not to take action or not rising to the devils goads to take the reigns is a skill beyond measure.


Separation calls for the letting go of ones own will and letting the higher self take you the best route for your balanced growth.


The inheritance of this action is to reap what you have sown. Just material benefits, rewards or deserts will be forthcoming in the fullness of time.


Learning to let go and ride the cosmic winds of your destiny takes greater courage than the average person has.


Two Group Stone:


Cycle:


The Cycle of Initiation consists of 13 runes, all of which are associated with self-change. If two or more of these runes appear in a reading, it usually signifies the growth of being, self transformation, or even the maturation process in action.


The indications are that a process of Initiation is in process, all of these are associated with self-change. A transformative process or even just a realisation from events and circumstances.


Tyr:


A grouping of eight stones that are associated with justice, balances and checks even the settling the scores or just karmic duty paid, Tyr is the boldest of the gods, who inspires courage and heroism in battle. An inspirational group.


Bold acts and brave deeds in the face of great odds or even just delays and inconveniences. The setting of resolve, the growth of resolution and seeing things through are greatly enhanced by the amount in the spread.


Sacrifice.


Harvest (Rev NRM)/Jera.

Harvest.
Conceding.

When reverse is diminish, for a start penalty not too the finish
Its a setback, from the pot black, dealt from the middle of the stack
Less than was expected, not enough for dejected, just the selected
So the handicap of fate, not delivered on the winners plate, is our start fate.


The lot we drew, is enough to get through, the short runway will do
We leave the terminal, to taxi in the wake thermal, after the cure all
From the terminal to the runway, is not done in a fun away day
The road is full, as we all have to pull, two years to the day, when we lift away.


Stone Meaning.


A Rune of beneficial outcomes, Jera applies to any activity or endeavour to which you are committed. Be aware, however, that no quick results can be expected. A span of time is always involved; hence the key words 'one year', symbolising a full cycle before the reaping, the harvest or deliverance.


You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labour has a long season, a long coming to term, Jera offers encouragement of success. Know that the outcome is in the keeping of Providence and continue to persevere.


Remember the old story about the farmer who was so eager to assist his crops that he went out at night and tugged on the new shoots. There is no way to push the river; equally, you cannot hasten the harvest. Be mindful that patience is essential for the recognition and acceptance of your own process which, in its season, leads to the harvest of the self.


You have prepared the ground and planted the seed. Now you must cultivate with care. To those whose labour has a long season, a long coming to term, Jera offers encouragement.


Three Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Joy:


This trinity of runes is associated with joy and fertility, the bringing of harmony the calm after the storm, the relief from turmoil.


Joy is the uplifting process from experience or relationships, or even from successes or even births and endings, a joyous release from captivity or restraint, or the delivery of good news.


Rectify:


There are four stones in this grouping. The runes of rectification can indicate the healing of rifts and broken bonds, the restoring of balances and checks, when a destabilised or chaotic phase ends.


The paying of dues, the process of restoration or even the rebuilding of bonds and relationships.


New Situation.


Protection/Algiz.


Protection.
Safe Harbour.

A shield is the armour that meets the strike
Armour has a price to pay on the long hike
To cover every inch of the body is possible
Being fleet of foot in armour is just impossible.


A vigil of mind is set to keep safe, all that cost dear
To value and preserve, without a shadow of fear
This is the discipline or the script for the day
So treading carefully, nothing is lost along the way.


Stone Meaning.


Control of the emotions is at issue here. During times of transition, shifts in life course and accelerated self-change, it is important not to collapse yourself into your emotions - the highs as well as the lows. New opportunities and challenges are typical of this Rune. And with them may come trespasses and unwanted influences.


Algiz serves as a mirror for the Spiritual Warrior, the one whose battle is always with the self. The protection of the Warrior is like the warning rustle of the sedge grass or like the curved horns of the Elk, for both serve to keep open space around you. Remain mindful that timely action and correct conduct are the only true protection. If you find yourself feeling pain, observe the pain, stay with it. Don't try to pull down the veil and escape from life by denying what is happening. You will progress; knowing that is your protection.


Two Group Stone:


Heimdall:


The watchman has eight affiliated stones, the sentinel on watch is personified in Heimdall, vigilance is maintained each conscious hour.


The watchman, these give an indication that care should be taken, caution and preparation are their watchwords. Being guarded in unfamiliar territory is a wise defence.


Protection:


There are four runes in the group and are valued for their powerful protective properties, just like a charm wards. Thought to be a defence against spiritual attacks from hostility and malice or envy.


Their influence in the reading is a balance against acts of chance and the randomness of fate. As supported or not by the other stones in the layout.


Summary.


Another positive swing reading both in the presentation and the undercurrents. The trend has been from stand off towards a positive swing to the middle of the road start of this little trend. The spreads are another case in point for the swing from a few days ago and the stage of yesterdays results by comparison. Without a twin the spreads the inclination and the global disposition of the groups give this a script feel even a report rather than an indicator.

Movement is clear after thew standstill and recuperation of late, getting things back up to speed. Matching input and not just tallying the Dutch cost, some redundancies can of course be lost. Returns are not the max but they are still good given the breakups and divisions that are going on. The ground is good and steady and the days are well stocked and provided for bringing a sense of security despite the precarious nature of events.

Getting into the grove stepping up the gears, mutual advantages are the rage my dears. Things are not going to weigh us down, divvying up and settling bills cause a frown. Some ar good about splitting the bill, the place is safe take a chill pill.


Short:


Movement starts to get up to speed, partnership is challenged to the deed, as possessions are all about the need. Divvying up in fair measure, returns are not that great a pleasure, but guarantees lessen the pressure.


Clipped:


Progress compliments consolidating binding ringfenced investments.

Group effects:


The double spread reading five upright and one mitigated reversed stone in the presentation with four even and two odd number stones in the undercurrents. The whole positive 9/3 three quarters positive leaning of the inclinations of the reading carry the trend even further. The benefits are with only a mitigated reversed stone in sacrifice pretty much all about face value here and the bonus is all in the groups again.

There are nine groups present here that’s all the groups possible and four of them are multiple. There is only a single hand of fate for a change and it is a four of a kind producing a global tetrahedron with Tyr in preparation and boldness at the peak. Freyr is announcing new and developing as Heimdall encourages preparation as Rectification as old disagreements get settled or mended. The groups are all about the action and most of it is global here.
