"I think the first step in honoring Mani is to try to find and define his place in our traditions. In trying to take back power from the male dominant society, I think women have over reached in their reconstruction of the moon mythos. The modern…"

World Runic Healing Network

This group gathers at regular intervals to create a global network of world healing using the power of runes. At a chosen date and time each participant builds the runic energy in their own way, then feeds it into the network. At present, we are using the rune under discussion in the Free Rune Study Course. To create the healing network we use a macro - meso - and micro-cosmos framework as follows:1. connect with each other2. connect with the runic energy (Chant the name, galdr, visualise it,…See More

Mani The Moon.

In the Norse mythos the moon is masculine and the Sun is feminine. While there is much written on the feminine Moon metaphor, in Wicca and other traditions, not much is left of Mani and His many secrets. I believe this is due to the persecution of feminine power in western Europe by a politically motivated  Holy Roman Empire (re-invented as the Holy Roman Church.)  Knowledge of Mani (the Moon) is vital to survival, this is the understanding of the natural world. A part  of what we call…See More

"True.  This picture brought Cernunnos to mind or even Krampus. But Tyriel is correct in that its meaning will be personal. "

Taking up the Runes

For a long time I was what cold be called a dabbler when it came to runes.  I guess I caught someones attention it doing so because according to a friend, one of the messages in my dreams(yeah those again) is to apparently learn divination.  That'd probably make it easier for whomever is trying to contact me to do so,I decided to listen to that interpretation and decided to learn about divination.  My first impulse, runes, not quite sure which Futhark I'm going to use exactly but since I have…See More

I've noticed runes have been appearing in my dreams lately.  They are usually on objects in a market place that sort of shows up. They are usually on necklaces. I don't remember all that appear but I do remember Isa and Ehwaz or Mannaz I'm not to sure.   I really need to pay better attention so I can remember the others.  Maybe figure out how to lucid dream so I can pick them up or something.

 

At least the ones I remember sort of fit.  I'm…

Lessons of Hagalaz: Rune of Disaster and Healing

In the face of disaster, compassionate human beings discover that they do not break, but become stronger. We discover that our communities come together, even on a global scale, in face of unimaginable destruction. When the universe shows its inimical side, the side that couldn't care less about average human affairs, it's as if we come together to show overwhelmingly that we care for one another. When the universe demonstrates that it cannot be depended upon, that it is more than able to wreck havoc, we react by showing that we can depend upon one another.
