Dictators Bypass.

Single Stone.


Present.


Protection/Algiz.


Protection.
Alarms Sounding.

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 no progress report as yet another failure by the so called British government sees extensions. Cash and a continued forelock tugging to a collection of dictators shows the real colours of the party for Euro exit sack, resign duck and dive as they concede powers the British people never allowed them to conservative-seed (concede) to another state. So defences are up on the personal a protectionism seeps down from the leaderless clueless top of the humping pile. The constraints, ties and so called obligations of a no longer member keep showing up the lie. ‘Kills joy’ as they do with their policies of persecuting the weak and infirm of the land with austere practices for the lower class and privileges still abounding at the apex level. On the mountain of sanctions, rape clauses and all the other inhuman practices that are discrimination against the voiceless and persecution of the weak at their hands sees the self in check as their devices intended. Separation is on hold as the old money ties keep them at the portfolio filling trough of the EU gravy train. Producing a standstill a block on movement and a more of the same old same old pretending to change going on for an indefinite time or untill action is taken against their blocking and diving.

Guards up and armour on, tied and bound so freedom is gone. Joy is held in check even cock blocked, personal plans and devices have been knocked. Breaking away has been dropped, as the way ahead is internally infernally blocked.


Five Stone Spread.


Overview.

Constraint/Nauthiz.


Constraint.
Hemmed In.

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.



Challenge.


Joy/Wunjo.


Joy.
Delaying 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.


Action.


The Self (Rev)/Mannaz.


The Self.
Obligations Over-Drive.

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.


Sacrifice.


Separation/Uruz.

Separation.
Cloying Cling.

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.


Standstill/Isa.


Standstill.
Immobilisation.

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.


Two stones have suspended their influence in the present from the last casting, with both stones remaining upright one a positive to negative and the other negative in the positive outcome. Joy moved from overview to challenge stagnating and stemming its power and influence, as Standstill moves out of action into outcome and lingers if not wallows in the change. The surface belies the circumstances and inclines into a formative framework of a pre determined outcome of inevitable repercussions to come. This innocuous and even positive based set of stones is the writing on the wall, under glorious skies with a price still to be paid for. Protectionism raises its ugly head and bellows ‘reasons sake’ even in the defiance of having been informed the will to preserve the ‘we have started and will continue regardless’ is the cry of the fool leaping of the cliff with no faith to soften or avert the blow with. Protective stances, tied and bound to the point of killing the pleasures of life itself, so sacrifice and humbling actions are enforced. Driving a wedge and breaking the ties needed to unify the forward march that should have been, bringing the wilful stagnation to a compounded congealing reality of no progress as the result of this choice of actions.

As a final global reading from this long observational glimpse into the bull headed drive of the species as the animal husbands steer back to their original course that they were warned to abandon it was known when the window was opened onto the character of the petitioner. With a history of asking for advice, taking expert insights and evidence the greedy, the power phased still from their bottom line invariably do what returns their own maximum returns over any form of good sense or advice. So inevitable the writing on the wall and the modus operandi bring into a reality the certainty of outcome from such inauspicious beginnings. The ‘di is cast’ the ‘wheel turns’ and the bets are placed against long term thinkings advice the short term grasped straws are still the most clutched in the haste to stay at the trough. There is time yet to turn away from the precipice and avert the awful certainty, but there will be no visual clues, no surfacing evidence, this is all down to the three silent voices that paint to the minds eye, as they tug at the hearts strings and whisper to the guts knowing. Where doubt can be a death knell as certainty can be self delusion from the egos wiles, the ring of truth will break the lie and clear the eye.

Wrapped up even insularised but and not is a good way, ties and binds restrict the forward way. Pleasure stolen and at worst in check, leaves personal plans still on the deck. Giving away power to the other, makes advances a lot of bother.


Short:


Focal defenses, limited senses. Lower feeling, movement reeling. Departures pending, mobility ending.


Clipped:


Defensive bindings dampen determination, undermining actions.

Group effects:


Two stones have lingered from the previous reading with Joy falling from the previous overview into challenge blocking and delaying needed outcomes. Then there is Standstill flipping out of action into outcomes producing an extension to a stagnation stranglehold. There are no obvious twins or stable mates but five stones in conjunction are holding a grip on movement and development from Protection to Standstill the block of give are forcing Joy into check in the process. Not a positive reading but an extension to an impasse is the sticky result with no indication of duration reflecting the long late cold and the current non ending heat waves hold on proceedings. Should have just walked away from the dictators stranglehold when we could have.

The double spread reading has five upright stones ans a single reversed stone in the presentation with an even three and three odd stones in the undercurrents. This gives the reading an 8/4 inclination in the polar bias of the spreads. This is just a dip of one point since the last casting was thrown and is no big thing on the surface but the intent and content needed a more positive bias at this point and so will prove lacking in results at a later date. This clearly all supports stagnation and it covers some insider trading as against the will of the nation they give greater and greater concessions wrapped up in an unwarranted and treacherous extension to a set of dictators.

There are seven groups present in the double spread reading with only three multiple groups this gives the reading a statutory single hand with a triple and a pair of pairs making a full house. the upper triple has a charm of caution in play at Universal strength from the personal house to the global reading. The personal sees Cycle stuck in the pair reducing the personal returns behind Tyr’s bold shield. Not a good overall reading but the positives incline is still an advantage as nothing has happened but talk and action will not back it up as time moves along.
