A Rune For June

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.

An Abrupt Awakening! — Kyle’s Karma Korner

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 […]

Summer is almost here!

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! If you want to know more, leave your best contact info in the form below, and join us on our journey of discovery!

 

 

Blessings From the New Moon

Tonite, from my back porch, I captured a beautiful shot of the New Moon waning, and the smattering of stars in a clear twilit sky; I knew I had to share this with the people who can’t observe this at their location. This is a perfect example of the expression about “being in the presence of [The Divine]”, I thought to myself.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             I decided to light an incense and white candle to honor the May Faerie Queen, and ask for Her to shower Her blessings of a bounteous Springtime, then sat down to catch up on my newsletter. I was experiencing some issues with my OS system-wide upgrade to G Suite, so have been unable to keep to a schedule this month, with my blog.                                                                                                                                                                                                My first order of business is to cast my 5-Rune Spread, for some insight into what to expect, or look forward to, for the remainder of the month; so, here goes…What I cast are as follows: Sowelu, Dagaz, Algiz, Berkana, and Nauthiz. The symbols are shown in the sidebar, and the descriptions are taken from The Book Of Runes by Ralph H. Blum; the way I interpret the meaning is, of course, all mine!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Sowelu signifies Wholeness, Life Force, and The Sun’s Energy. In our lifetimes on this planet, we, as individuals, are all seeking something. This is different, in most respects, for everyone, and that is how it should be; however, we are all human, regardless of our ethnic and denominational aspects, and we all are trying to find answers to explain our existence, on this planet, at this time, and in the particular situation or environment, we find ourselves in, and more importantly, perhaps, why, we are, there. I believe that we all seek wholeness, which some are able to find through religion, or political participation, or career choices. However you find it is totally up to the individual, and as such, takes many different paths to reach its destination.  Drawing this Rune is an indication that this is a time to search deep within yourself for that which makes you feel complete and at peace with your self, and your greater Self, (the Divine within you).                                                                                                                                                                                                        Next up is Dagaz. The twenty-second of twenty-five Runes, this is the last Rune of the Cycle of Initiation Runes, which I will explain in more detail in another blog post. Dagaz is symbolic of Breakthrough, Transformation, and Day. This Rune signals a major shift in the process of inner growth or self-change; a transformation in attitude. In some cases, this can be extreme enough, so as to cause difficulties in your circumstances, to the point where lifestyle changes become necessary.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Algiz: Protection, Sedge or Rushes, and The Elk. This Rune is all about control over your emotions. When we find ourselves in times of transition, we sometimes lose control of our emotions; this Rune is a reminder not to be at the mercy of those emotions, as they can often be counter-productive. Imagine the elk in the wild; when they hear a suspicious noise, the first reaction is to become very still and alert, once they determine whether to “fight or flight “, they take action, and follow through on that decision. That is the message of this Rune.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Berkana is our nextt Rune, symbolizing Growth, Rebirth, and  the Birch Tree. This is another Cycle Rune and it represents a form of fertility that fosters both symbolic and actual growth. This growth can manifest in many different ways; most commonly it is concerned with  the flow of beings into their new forms. Be aware, clear, and controlled, and certain that your motives are clear, otherwise, your actions might create havoc or go awry.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Finally, we come to our fifth Rune: Nauthiz, which signifies Constraint, Necessity, and Pain. I’m beginning to get the sense of my full message now. When using a 5 Rune Spread, the order is as follows: Overview, Challenge, Course of Action, Sacrifice, and ultimately, New Situation evolving. Now, I have a challenge to present to anyone who bothers to read any of my posts: Post your interpretations of this Runecast , following the order above, and the descriptions provided, to see how close you can come to my final summary, which I will be posting on June 1, 2018. I will take the five that I like the best, and give free Gift Passes  for readings in one of my modalites. That would be, for those who haven’t seen my About page: Tarot, Numerology, Viking Runes, Crystals, and good old-fashoined (un-)-Common Sense! In the meantime, Blessings to All, from Mellie Mystic!

Who am I? Why here?

Hello, everyone! That first question is a doozy! I think I have been searching for an answer to that my whole life. Just for the purpose of this assignment, I will introduce myself by the name I was given at birth: Melorie W., and include the name I am currently known by, legally: Kyle M. As to the second question, I suppose the main reason I am here is to try to build my website for the purpose of enabling a secondary income to sustain me through my enforced retirement. My research led me to believe that having a blog was an intelligent option, whether I intended to monetize or not, as it opened up more avenues for revenue! Anyway, I’ve always enjoyed writing and reading, so… what the heck, right? I  am Wiccan, a Numerologist, and GreenCrafter, and use Tarot Cards, Viking Rune Stones, rituals and rites, with Astrology and a lot of common sense, (which isn’t as common as you’d think), to help me and my clients/friends to make sense of this crazy world we all live in. Before I lose your attention, please understand one thing; like most people, I was raised a Christian, and still consider myself to be one, (for lack of a better label), but came to the realization, years ago, that the King James version of the Bible didn’t have all the answers I still had questions for, so I started to explore, by any means available, to ferret out those answers. Unfortunately for me, I will never live long enough to get all those answers, but I have discovered so much more than I could ever hope to, by keeping an open mind, and in the process, learned of alternative processes by which to expand my possibilities, and my knowledge, and armed with this I hope to enlighten others to the vast sea of potential to be explored, while living in this reality.                In two more days, I will be celebrating my 58th birthday on this lovely planet, and have learned so many lessons about life, and love and spirituality, and now I think it is time for me to use my natural talents, along with the tools I’ve aquired throughout my lifetime, to illuminate some of the options available, to those who wish to explore. Come join me on my journey; it’s bound to be a wild and crazy ride!! Who knows, you might even be intrigued enough to click a link or two, in some of my pages that will take you further, into the realm of Infinite Possibilities, and Lifelong Dreams-Come True
