What to nurture during your cocooning stage?

Your cocoon phase is a period of time within the darkness where changes take place essential to connecting you with your most authentic self. Inner work begins to happen alongside the shedding of people, places, or objects you think are important yet they belong to your previous unauthentic self. They can’t proceed with you along the remainder of this very personal journey.

Algiz offers you protection operating from the archetype of a spiritual warrior at this moment in time. Displaying a sign of defense magic through a splayed hand, swan in flight, or the horns of an elk as well as the branches of a tree. The concept given here is that of protectors and life givers who took to flight by the means of swan feathers providing one with victory.

Further correspondences relate to the elk sedge which grows in marshy regions flourishing in the water element yet capable of wounding anyone who attempts to grasp it. The Goths of previous eras related Algiz to a protective grove dedicated to the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine or even Divine twins joined at the head.

Nurturing your relationship to the ancestral as well as the Divine realms will allow you to connect with or communicate with the Universal/Cosmic wells of past, present, and future from which pours forth luck and life force.

This rune reminds one to listen carefully to their guardian angel(s) for guidance. Pay particular accordance to your birth guardian angel who accompanies you throughout the entirety of your incarnation. Mine personally happens to be Nith-haiah.

Algiz has been also correlated with the Icelandic Rune Poem where it can be described as Earth’s increase and humanity’s pleasure. These runes should not be utilized for negative associations with racial ideology as they have direct correlation to phonetics and the alphabet which has come to us from Phoenician, classical Greek, Etruscan, Latin, and Gothic scripts.

What is protecting you during this vulnerable time?

Raido asks that you develop unity consciousness instead of operating via separation consciousness. In the Cosmic tree of Yggdrasil we find Ygg/Odin symbolizing a profound understanding of the meaning of life only obtainable by those who adventure through the nine worlds bravely and courageously.

When we leave the comfort zone of staying at home to be with family/friends for support we also begin to live for others losing our abilities to be independent and discern the right direction or true North of our inner compass.

This rune presents itself to teach you that there are new life paths opening before you. Pause to give thanks for the help of parents or other elders and friends whom have helped you learn the ropes of living better thus far.

Know that your shadow is growing within by everything society does not accept of you which you have chosen to repress. Now you must remember all that you have forgotten embarking on a transition from one evolutionary phase unto another. Have faith that any problems you presently face will be solved soon. Achievement is on the horizon.

When will you know you’re ready to re-emerge?

Uruz assists one with displaying their strength and bravery by asking one to employ the totemic energies of the ox. When we have learned to dominate our ego accepting our weaknesses or limitations by recognizing that Uruz reflects aspects of our subconscious and unconscious. The survival instinct generates fear complexes and is known as the fight or flight response. Are you capable of rest and digest?

This rune asks if you have the will to dominate this blind force rather than allow it to oppress you. We all have natural drives and lower instincts that must be kept in check. Can you calm your ghosts when you face them? An example found in the the story of Mithra depicts the killing of a primordial bull which allowed for the Universe/Cosmos to be ordered rather than remain in chaos.

This rune is here to illustrate that one must be responsible when they operate from a position of power utilizing intelligence, right action, and understanding that you are an effective leader only when you respect the wishes/needs of others rather than subjugate them. If you’ve allowed calmness to become blind fury then you’re not operating from your higher self.

What will release you?

Kenaz tells one that it’s time to share their vision with the world by becoming a soul alchemist. This rune implies that one should have the knowledge of mythology or lore well understood, be deeply connected with Universal/Cosmic consciousness, and work with their rich ancestral cultural heritage to create their artistry.

Dis-ease is caused within the physical human body when one improperly harnesses the kundalini. As a symbol of the torch bearer or light bearer Kenaz speaks to feminine occult knowledge particularly midwifery. Misuse the kundalini and you will get burned!

Concerned with origins, underlying cause and effect, and the health of the human psyche one should be dedicated to truth seeking and knowledge. Once you have deconstructed the illusions, beliefs, and habits they can shape themselves anew. This deep form of alchemy lets us become whatever we will which is hopefully a better version of our true selves.

What brings order to the chaos?

Berkana’s feminine fertility and energy announces new ways of thinking, the start of a business, and the merger of opposites into wholeness. Ascetism is not the path to enlightenment when this rune appears before us. You’re asked to nourish and protect while making peace with self. When one has reconnected to the soul of the world, Mother Earth, and the Divine Feminine they become the bearer of abundance.

The basis of all life is an intelligent principle known as the Anima Mundi who brings forth minerals, plants, animals, and everything else in creation. In our long forgotten past it was women who operated with supremacy cultivating/growing plants, domesticating animals, and birthing the new into our lives.

Work with the Birch tree representing a herbal medicine which benefits the metabolism moving out what is old in our body cleansing us while acting as an anti-diuretic and anti-rheumatic. You’re entering a period full of energy, motivation, and are capable of embarking on new professional, sentimental, and spiritual paths. Reflect and clarify your goals.

Have a stellar Thursday and be well! I’ll see you in a few days once my schedule calms back down. 💗

The progress on our sweet potatoes along with our basil which you may not be able to tell the difference between. Two of the smaller photos the leave patterns are different.
I had turned the entire bed of beans into compost. But guess what life is co-existing with death. The beans are returning so there will be yet more purple, yellow, and green soon no doubt!
Much of today’s photos were a chance to test the new iPhone 13 camera features. I’m still attempting to get used to the manner with which it operates. More tomatoes on the vine with the garlic chives, 15 in total, preparing to flower for the year which usually brings the honey bees every year.
Colorful array of flowers still attracting the bees and hummingbirds. We have a few sunflowers which invite birds as well looking to consume their seeds. I made sure not to harvest all of them leaving seeds for nature as well.
I’m really unsure of when to try harvesting the peanuts the squirrels planted in our carrot and wildflower beds after being fed by neighbors.

Fun Quote Fridays: Millions of Eyes Watching From Space

Yes, those are eight tarantulas that hid in a pot on the porch during a rain storm! We had to release them back to nature by dumping the pot out carefully.

Would you believe I had a different entry begun, but completely scrapped it. I had so much I wanted to say, but could not bring myself to do so. I’ve learned something about not just myself, but also how I perceive my audience and humanity at large right now. Some people are like Cypher in the Matrix. They really never want to be “red pilled,” and if they are they will only resent you for doing so. Therefore, I’ve today fallen victim to censoring myself opting to instead try to go back to blog posts that don’t have to “wake anyone” to truths that they might dislike me for sharing because I’m afraid I would be shooting myself in my own foot.

This is not the person I expected to be, but it’s the energy or frequency I’ve been picking up from a lot of people I meet in everyday life over the last two years. As I said recently I can’t stand this for the fact that everyone and every thing feels truly inauthentic so I’m unable to feel at home now just about anywhere that I find myself.

It’s the painstaking reason for why I’ve grappled with depression, anxiety, and literally wanting off Spaceship Earth for I don’t feel this place is home to me at all. Funny isn’t it? My intuition tells me I belong somewhere else and that I feel exceptionally displaced or like a stranger on this planet. But I think or rather I believe this is because if I spoke my inner knowledge or gnosis I’d begin to expose the blatantly obvious truths of adopting Swiss cheese beliefs of certain ideological groupthink full of holes which the brainwashed, hypnotized, or trance formed ignore which is being or has been pushed by certain humans who run the movie we’re watching while inciting hatred enjoying those who squirm over illusionary defective values they adopted.

We’re on a trajectory that was put into motion by humans not taking responsibility for self which is why I’ve eluded towards improving one’s consciousness. If you give all your power to a collectivization system you probably will lose any shred of as my tarot reading said Thursday independence within unity causing a collapse or cascade effect. It’s also this inkling in my logic which states that if a nation’s debt to GDP is severely messed up one could consider someone coming to collect on the amortization usury loans where you get re-possessed or dispossessed.

Now before someone says “decentralized” and waves magical wands/words at me with a miracle solution because I’ll poke holes into that as well just stop so we don’t argue today. My family already knows how my consciousness operates understanding fully why I’ve said “impermanence” is what we need to get comfortable with because nothing lasts forever and change is all there is. Flow state means you don’t get “jailed into” anything whatsoever. I’m that annoying 42 year old woman who says to some people “security” is an illusion which is why I always think of the quote “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Thanks Franklin!

The most comforting truth found in 3D life is exactly what many fear; impermanence. Nothing lasts forever. Not the good nor the bad. Through all my depressive or anxious episodes allowing for anyone to appreciate their happier moments everything is made more valuable by impermanence. Instead of the common answer to how one is doing perhaps a better answer would have always been “ebb/flow.” Life is the cycle of perpetual seasons. Summer babies like myself (7/26) feel this flow the most during both spring and summer months returning with the winter months. Flow, liquid, fluid, and being like water.

Today I’m returning to my lessons on the Nordic Runes, by using them to play around with my astrological placements for a reading which I’ve ultimately never done for myself or anyone else. Before I get to that today is 3/11/2022, and I want to call attention to the number 311. Some assign 311 to ἀναβολή translated as ascent, to move upward, to rise, and to succeed. It indicates we should focus on our greatest dreams not our fears by embracing new friends, new ideas, and new status.

More than this it cautions that something negative could change our life so we should be prepared for adapting during adverse periods of our life. Where I live we dial this number for help as well as information with regards to non-emergency concerns. This could be anything ranging from neighborhood complaints to traffic fines and sewer concerns. I don’t worship any of this in my esoteric studies. I value what I can possibly learn from these systems same as when I have discussed the Four Pillars or Genetic Matrix.

This will get even more interesting if one was to consider Kabbalah. I was reading a discourse on the tree from which Adam ate being wheat. The infant who has not cried out to “Mother/Father” and the taste of grain. This becomes an issue of the Omer (wheat sheaf), Passover, and Shavuot (two loaves of bread at the Feast of Weeks) referencing perhaps Virgo or Elul in my though process, but also Aquarius due to the fruits of trees which are blessed. A field being Malchut (Malkuth) joined with a tree of the field.

Humanity is that tree of the field which a barley offering could represent a beast or the lower animal nature coming under the authority of the Qliphoth or Sitra Achra towards the authority of holiness. Wheat can also be described as the primordial world of Tohu. Wheat is the spiritual service of humanity if civilizations properly rectify their disorder and ruin. Tohu is the three unrectified lower worlds where division exists in all forms especially an argumentative nature through opinion. Whose garden are you in? Yours or that of others? Furthermore who have you caused/allowed to enter your garden.

You have a manure pile of memories. Nothing you can do about that. Now, you can drown in the stink, or turn it into compost and grow a garden. – Rebecca O’Donnell

God/Goddess encounters Tohu or a Universe before creation dividing it into its constituent parts to reshape it into a wiser orderly world entrusting this task to humans. Societal mayhem and disorder characterize intellectual as well as moral impoverishment which leads to childlike foolishness. When rampant senselessness reigns perplexity is ascribed to the Earth. Some state Tohu never communicated the message or philosophy of creation out of nothingness for it was not fully accepted by all sources.

Eventually too much classifying and systematizing leads to a cacophony of disparity. Not only does the Evil Inclination represent the ego, but it could relate to death whereas good rather than a moral or ethical edict alone could relate to continued existence and permanence. Again though if we transitioned this to creation, preservation, and destruction we would find that birth and death are the realities of life from which we can’t escape. Traditionally we’re conditioned to celebrate birth while fearing death. To cope with both polarities religion is adopted. Ironically those who accept impermanence learn to value a life of change.

Who wants to live in a world where everything stays the same forever. A seed for example turned into a tall tree signifies the importance of impermanence. A withered flower teaches one to value how a negative becomes a positive, but only when one investigates the concept of compost/fertilizer. If we never put in hard work the poor would never become rich and the ignorant would never become educated. Without change democracy never overthrows tyranny/oppression and civilizations will be replaced by barbarism. Attachments to possessions remove the natural laws and destroy any possibility to locate the path to freedom.

We’re all victims truthfully of “word magic” which I ever briefly spoke of regarding artificial intelligence and equity in previous blog posts. Two important words you also need to pay special attention to include lawful and legal.

  • Lawful is used to describe something of substance or something that is real.
  • Legal is used to described something of form or something that appears to be real.

Lawful is based upon natural rights and the laws of nature while legal deals with the color of law through rights given by man and the institutions of government. Color of law is a fancy way to describe the appearance of law rendering legal as nothing to do with any real basis in law whatsoever. The little bit I’m still attempting to learn about this indicates that it could nullify all legal contracts and debts. It is something I’ve attempted to put in front of family as well which is more easily accepted by my mother, but very much misunderstood by my step father creating a lot of argumentation. This occurs not just in the literal we should consider any karmic or dharmic debts.

We will look at Sunna’s Chariot representing my Heroic Self/Soul Purpose today as well as Nornir’s Gift representing my Evolutionary Key/Destiny Helper, the Earth Rune representing my Skillful Warrior/Practical Purpose, and Manni’s Chariot representing my Passionate Self/Emotional Purpose. Each of these represent the Sun sign, Moon sign, and Birth Hour respectively. I’m not sure if I’d consider this as an addition to astrology charts I currently provide. If I knew they interested my readership or customers I’d be willing to expand this further.

“The Japanese say, if the flower is to be beautiful, it must be cultivated.” – Lester Cole

Sunna’s Chariot: Uruz

Uruz corresponds to manhood/womanhood, strength, and the wild ox signifying termination as well as new beginnings. When this rune is drawn it indicates that the life lived thus far has outgrown it’s purpose and new energy must be released in a new form. This Cycle of Initiation is focused on new growth, change, and a descent into darkness. This progression is symbolic of five aspects including death, decay, fertilization, gestation, and rebirth.

Events undergone all deal with undergoing death from within the self where loss is disguised as new opportunities. Uruz speaks of an ancient symbol known as the aurochs or wild ox which when domesticated (an immensely difficult task) were capable of transporting heavy loads. Paying attention to one’s unconscious when drawing Uruz provides for better adaptation to missed opportunities, failures, and the weakening of one’s position.

Below are some further helpful descriptions of the rune Uruz and as always this might be akin to previous studies:

Nornir’s Gift: Fehu

Fehu corresponds to nourishment, fulfilled ambitions, and shared emotions. This speaks towards taking what is worldly and transmuting it to the Divine which only occurs when one deeply probes into the motives/intent of the profit and gain ideology in society at large. If one draws Fehu they are asked to take a long look into what their desires really are with reference to wealth and possessions essential to their well being, self rule, and growth of their will power. Fehu speaks succinctly to the conservation of what is already gained through vigilance and mindfulness.

It is highly cautioned to not be reckless lest you collapse your successes. Considerable frustrations in life are best addressed when one learns that they could be dispossessed within a range of trivial to severe. This speaks to the actions of falling short in one’s efforts, reaching out and missing the mark, and standing by watching helplessly as what you’ve gained is taken away. If you have not yet asked “what can I learn from this in my life” then you have not adequately assessed your situation.

Earth Rune: Wunjo

Wunjo corresponds to joy, light, and a fruit bearing branch. A shift must occur for one to freely receive this rune’s blessings which comes in many forms not limited to material gains, but can encompass the emotional well being of humanity as well as self. Wunjo has been known to speak of an alchemical understanding which transmutes knowledge sufficient to illuminate the human soul. This will only occur when one renounces existing plans, ambitions, and goals. Everything is in fact a test asking humanity as a whole to be present, sincere towards self/others, and trusting in the knowledge that one can’t fail. If you face a time of crisis meditate with Wunjo.

Manni’s Chariot: Ansuz

Ansuz was in fact given it’s interpretation in my Thursday blog post.
