Oracle of the Week - Sowilo (soe-wee-low) Success and Hope for things to come

Sowulo / Sowilo, (pronounced soe-wee-low) means The Sun. And for those of us down in the southern hemisphere this is a good sign as we approach the mid-winters mark, our winter solstice. Sowilo speaks of optimism, hope and good guidance. It speaks of achieving goals, and success, honor and luck. Sowilo is also the rune of spirit and soul. This week our message is to look forward in hope. To know that the lessons we have met these past weeks, and the efforts we have made will result in success and hope for the future. Spirit would have us know that we should remain optimistic of the things to come. We have honored agreements, kept our ground, and now must...

Oracle of the week - Tiwaz - honor your agreements, and be true in all your dealings

Tiwaz - The one handed god. The symbol of trust, faith and loyalty. A little Background: Tiwaz,(Pronounce tyr-was) is ruled by the god Tyr, who sacrificed his hand to Fnrir the wolf for the good of his community. It is said that the Aesir gods were afraid that Fenrir would destroy them, and decided to bind the great wolf, but had to trick him in order to do so. They asked Fenrir to use his great strength to test some bonds for them, assuring him they would let him go if he were unable to break the bonds. Fenrir was rightly suspicious, and he asked for insurance. He asked that one of the gods place their hand in his mouth and...

Oracle of the Week - The Three Norns - They have more to say, and they say it straight

Those of you following the Oracle of the week, will recognize this from the May 1st post. Sitting in my practice room today, and creating, preparing the space, to draw the Oracle of the week, I follow a small ritual. Part of which is to call on the three Norns; Urd, Verdandi, and Skuld, to speak truly, for they are the ones who weave the web of Wyrd. But, what to do when this is the second time this card comes out in just over a month. Do I put it back and ask again. I think not. Unless I want to open myself for a spiritual slap. :-)  "There stands an ash called Yggdrasil,A mighty tree showered in white...

Oracle of the Week - Raidho- Rhythm, Auspicious Timing, Progress and Travels

Raidho - the rune of rhythm and progress. Of order and action. Ritual and being on your right path. The card design depicted here today is an early design of my own "Ensamvarg Rune Card" deck that I have designed to be used for teaching. The card is filled with elements to teach us more of the rune, from an esoteric, historic, lore and shamanic side. Raidho is closely linked to horses. Directly and indirectly in the meaning. Pronounced "Rye-though" this is the rune of rythym and travel. This week Skuld (the third of the three Norns, her name being the origins of the word for "Should") brings us the card Raidho. Raidho is here to tell us to keep to the...

Weekly Oracle - The rune Gebo - Generosity, Success and Understanding

Good Morning, and what a fantastic day here along the Garden Route of South Africa. Sun is shining and clear skies abound. This weeks Oracle comes in the form of the Gebo rune. And I am doubly excited, as this is the first time I am using my new set of Rune Cards. I have been waiting for them close on three months. Thought they got lost in the postal system. And I did a little ceremony last week to call them in from being lost. Long story short, my 5 year old daughter found a slip floating around the garden on Friday. Didn't look like it had been there overnight, and certainly not a month old as the slip said....
