Hello, my friends, again! Oh, wow, we are already almost into summertime, phew! This year seems to be speeding by, leaving me breathless. I just reached into my Runebag, right now, to see what I should focus on for this month, and withdrew the Rune, “Dagaz”, Breakthrough. Dagaz is the twenty-second Rune, and is the last Rune in the Cycle of Initiation. When you draw this Rune, you can expect a major shift or breakthrough in the process of self-change, or transformation. This can be a very good thing, but it is wise to be prepared for unpredictable results, because this Rune often requires an unswerving and radical trust; in your self, and in your Higher Self, or your Spiritual Warrior, as He/She is sometimes referred to. In ancient cultures, Runes provided a means for the elders or shamans, to determine the best direction or course of action, to take at any given time, among other uses, and was also used as a sacred tool in many of the tribes’ religious ceremonies. One school of thought is that an Oracle would “speak” to [one], by guiding the hand to choose the most relevant stone, in order to find an answer. Another legend has it, that all of the Runes would be tossed into the air, and all the Runes that landed face-up, would then be read by the Holy Man (or Woman), to learn the next course of action to take. There are other origins ascribed to this particular tool, and there are several historical sites where evidence can be found of their usage. I use my Runes when I am struggling to find a sense of clarity, or when I have issues with a situation or circumstance, that is difficult to resolve. What I find amazing, is that the Runes I draw are almost always consistent with the Tarot Card reading I follow up with. For that explanation, I have never found a scientific or religion-based answer, nor has my research uncovered one.

When I saw today’s Prompt word, I immediately had so many ideas flooding my mind, that I had to start my first draft for my monthly newsletter right away! I usually try to post at least once a month on my blog, but I’ve been busy with expanding my knowledge, and also with setting up […]
A full moon is right around the corner, as well! On Tuesday night we have a beautiful full moon full moon you can get all the details by following the link. This is one of my favorite sites. There is so much information to be gleaned, here! I’ve always been interested in Astrology and Astronomy, but over the last decade I really started researching more into things like Numerology and Runes. Many of my friends started coming to me on a regular basis to have me do readings for them. That, as they say, was that! I have decided to open up my doors, and my heart, to share that light within, to others interested in exploring, with me and my friends, all the avenues available that enable us in our search for answers to who we are, and why we are here, on this planet, and at this time and place. Believe me, it’s a lot of fun, and more importantly, you will learn things about yourself, and about how you relate to others, and why!
