Love Journey


Some     people say

   I don't know     what I'm missing

   when I choose

   what I choose:   the paths taken.


Some    people say

   I must     experience

   what they choose

   Not exclude    paths not for me.


But I     don't say

   any must do     as I must do.

   My lessons

   are for me     to learn all through.


Yet, I      listen

   and hear…

Would anyoone like to study a specific rune with me?

Does anyone want to study a specific rune with me? (Using books such as Tyriel's Book of Rune Secrets, Lisa Peschel's A Practical Guide to The Runes: Their Uses in Divination and Magic, and Diana L. Paxson's Taking Up The Runes ...? Don't worry if you don't have all these books, or if you don't have any books on runes at all, or if you have different ones than what's listed above :)

 ...I can't really decided which rune to study, so, whoever takes me up on this can…

I've returned! (+ pictures of my new rune set!)

Hi everyone!

I'm sorry I've been gone for the last six months. I've been really busy working on certifications and school, and then I also just ended up finally leaving a bad crowd, so to speak. (I don't mean drugs and alcohol, I mean a bad *online* group - problematic people, problematic situations. I finally found my voice and left).

Since last being here, I've since unfortunately abandoned my project on working on finding the archetypes within the runes and the tarot…

ISA: Rune Study

Isa: Ice (Old Norse)

It is winter here, and the lesson I am focused on right now is Isa.  Isa's energy is quiet and pensive.  It represents a time to be still, focusing inward, and patiently awaiting the right time to act.  Patience is hard for me.  Really hard.  But I know that good things come to me when I wait patiently for the right timing to present itself.  I am planning a garden this year, and Isa is teaching me much as I begin this process.  Patience as I wait for the right…

A runic dream I had a week ago

The dream took place in this artic environment. It was in the middle of this icy lake which had two mountainous islands on it. There was a very small but perilous jump between the two islands. One was bigger, and it held a school. The other was smaller, but more dangerous because it hadn't been leveled. And there was just this small hut like thing and nobody ever went there because it was so dangerous. 

Now, in this school-like place, there was a handicapped girl. Her…

Requiring help on a reading

I am wondering if I could get help on trying to understand this spread I did for myself today.

Jera +  Inguz +  Kenaz

This is what I have interpreted it to mean however I don't think it is right.

By planning, patience and hard work on my goals that I started a long time ago, I am witnessing them starting to come into fruit. If I want better results, I should allow more time for them to ripen so as the results will be sweeter financially, spiritually and mentally. The…

An Omen Perhaps

I have always been attracted to the Runes since a teenager, I even designed my own rune as a personal sig. In addition to runes I like to write poetry and short stories, I'd like to tell you a story of a particular poem that I wrote that seemed at least to me to gain a life of its own.

When I created this poem I was going through some hard times and dealing with a lot of personal problems. But this poem like a lot of my works just begged me to release it and is to date my favorite…

Jera: Unexpected Mysterious Realms

In Rune Menings Section on this site there is a rather curious discussion of Dagaz and its rather unexpected invisibility application. I have heard/read of other instances when runes acted in ways well outside of their best-known mainstream descriptions. In some cases of course focusing the strength of one's intent through alternative meanings attributed to certain runes can be behind the scenes, but in other situation a different meaning of some certain rune appears to be repeatedly…

An Experiment in Wisdom

I've long thought of seeking out some of the best minds of the Western philosophical tradition, and finding the runic thinking within them. When I was at the height of my absorption of rune principles, I would often mark the symbols on the side of books I was reading, when an idea seemed in accordance with what I knew of a rune. I wondered if anyone else did this?

Either way, I suffer from an interest in all wisdom, of every tradition, though the runes were my first gateway…

Three Runes for tomorrow, December 21.

Isa + Thurisaz + Hagalaz

Very interesting Runes for Sosltice's day.

It seems something is going to change a bit... Something is going to be shaken!

Any thoughts?

Ascribing Runic Correspondances to Each Tarot Trump Card

Several members who have been following me have been watching me struggle with learning to divine with the runes. I'm an experienced tarot reader and use other mediums as well (generalized oracle cards, dowsing pendulums, scrying crystals, the Celtic Ogham fews, etc). So far I'm finding this exploration to be, literally, dizzying. So far my opinion is that the runes ARE trumps themselves but are along a vastly different avenue of meaning than the tarot's trump cards. However, I'm having much…

Orlog and Wyrd

I was not familiar with the concept of Orlog, I tought it was Wyrd alone weaving the web of creation...I read that Orlog is the Primal Law underlying Multiverse and Wyrd is a particular destiny emerging from Orlog. In other words things have to obey such an underlying law to develop fully and fulfill its destiny... Today someone in this community taught me about the Nature's Will and now I just learned about Orlog... Synchronicity and Symmetry!

Asking Yes/No Questions With The Runes

My book on runes (not Tyriel's although I do own that too and definitely recommend it - I have it in both Kindle and paperback) mentions a way to ask the runes yes/no questions. The way it explains to do it is to take out three, set them all down face down, rearrange them a few times while asking your question and then turn them back face up.

Three right side up = strong yes

Three reversed = strong no

Two right side up and one reversed = yes

Two reversed and one face…

New rune set! (with pictures!) :D

I just bought a fourth rune set. It was made by Valkyrie Cox ("Val") who handmakes metaphysical items and sells them in her shop, Luna Blue Boutique ( This set is in pink with gold glitter made out of Fimo and dedicated to the Vanir. That completes all the rune sets this seller makes and I'm happy with each and every one of them so I doubt I'll be buying any other sets anytime soon.…
