September 2019 Energy Update: Runes
For this month’s energy forecast, I’ve invoked the ancient wisdom of the Runes instead of the Tarot – those mysterious symbols carved into wood, metal or stone, most commonly affiliated with our Germanic and Nordic ancestors.
Compared with card reading, rune reading is far more simplistic in terms of its imagery but that can make reading the runes a far more difficult task to master. Whilst each rune of course has its own meaning, pay attention to any thoughts or images, people or situations that pop into your mind whilst considering your reading below. Those messages are the ones specific for you.
The reading is broken down into 4-weekly sections or thereabouts:
If you’re at all familiar with the Disney film “Frozen”, you’ll know just what I mean when I describe this rune, Is, as my “Elsa” stone! Foreigner’s “Cold as Ice” song from the Seventies also sprang to mind.
This suggests that there may be a certain coldness or isolation by yourself or those around you at the start of September 2019. A feeling of still being “stuck” in similar energy to that experienced in August 2019. A need for patience at a time when it may be wearing thin. Things will start to move again but slowly.
Similar energy to The Chariot card of the tarot, Rad is indicative of journeys. These can be spiritual or physical in nature. However, with the rune coming out reversed, this may mean slow progress and delays.
Some slow progress might be noticeable in your life come Week 2 of September 2019 but you’ll still probably feel frustrated and impatient at the pace. Use this time to do your research, listen to warnings and ensure you’re well prepared for any journeys you’re about to take.
Abundance is indicated by the presence of Feoh in matters of health, wealth and relationships. Being reversed however could be indicative of a feeling of lack or of something missing.
Right around Week 3 you may be feeling as though something is missing in your life. This doesn’t have to be a bad thing! Noticing that need is the first step in addressing any areas of imbalance whether in terms of a new healthy eating regime, exercise and self-care or taking back control of any financial issues. Relationships of all kinds can benefit from this energy too, as people are clearer about asking for what they truly need from each other.
Week 4 & Beyond
The rune of seasonal changes and harvest comes out just after we celebrate the Harvest Festival on 22 September 2019 here in the UK. This rune cannot be read “reversed”. Similar energy to the Wheel of Fortune card in the Tarot.
Whether Week 4 is a time of celebration of your own particular “harvest” in your own life will really depend on your efforts and perseverance through the slower energies of the past few weeks. Have you been patient and diligent, consistent and balanced in this time or have you tried to take shortcuts and been sloppy? This rune is also associated with the wheel so could be somehow related to the journey of Week 2 or to the Wheel of Life and its cycles. There is a karmic element to this rune too; a time of “reaping what you have sown”, all of which links back itself to this idea of it being harvest time.
Quite the mixed bag for September then! It pretty much feels a tale of two halves, with the heavy, slow progress energy of August 2019 seeping over into the first week or so of September.
But stick with it – by the end of Week 2 movement of some sort seems evident. A time for making plans and research, the benefits of which will be felt towards the latter part of the month once you’ve had your moment of clarity on anything you feel may be lacking in your life. This is when you’ll begin to reap your own “harvest” from all efforts in all areas of your own life over these frustratingly slow last few weeks.
Don’t shortchange yourself then; no shortcuts, eyes on the prize and hopefully the results of your harvest should payoff.
I hope you enjoyed your Energy Update as provided by the wisdom of the Runes! Feel free to share this article with anyone you think might enjoy it.
