Creating A Healing Bindrune

Creating A Healing Bindrune

I use a specific process when creating bindrunes. I could select them intentionally, but I prefer to let the runes decide the bindrune which is what I did today. I wanted the focus of the bindrune to be on healing. Many have been through so much lately with the recent hurricanes and senseless violence that […]

Disruption Before Change

Disruption Before Change

An interesting synchronicity occurred with today’s tarot reading. Its overall numerology is three, the same as today itself. 10/10/2017 reduces to 1, 1, 1 which then also becomes three. Wholeness, triple aspects, and unity are among three’s numerological influences. It’s expressed by Mother, Father, and Child and the sense of something greater than before. Rather […]

Catalyzing The Divine Feminine

Catalyzing The Divine Feminine

I like to cast runes during Esbat rituals. Whether it’s the Dark Moon or when she’s Full, Esbat rituals offer an opportunity for a variety of magickal workings as well as divinations. I performed this runecasting during Thursday’s Full Blood Moon and drew Thurisaz, Mannaz, and Berkano to see what would be influencing in the coming month. […]

Witch Notes: Tragedy Requires Compassion Edition

Witch Notes: Tragedy Requires Compassion Edition

After the recent hurricanes and the mass shooting in Las Vegas, it’s hard to imagine that things can get any worse in this country. But then Donald tweets or does a photo op and then reality smacks us all in the face again. He’s unbelievable. He’s allowed to run amok while others behind the scenes […]

In Joyful Presence With All

In Joyful Presence With All

Wunjo, Ehwaz, and Othala comprise today’s runecasting. Elemental influences are Earth and Water; absent are Fire and Air. Overall, the numerology is six or the sacred layer of Self, governing our emotions, communication, harmony, and balance. I crafted the runes I’m using from a black locust branch from a tree in my backyard. I craft most […]

A Balanced Purpose

A Balanced Purpose

I like the number seven. Not because it’s lucky, but because when drawn, it resembles scales to me, striking a balance of some kind. Three on each side of one in the middle, seven can signify the balance of polarities, between inner and outer awareness, and of physical and nonphysical aspects of Self. It’s also […]

Protection Bindrune: Binding Our Will Into A Single Focus

Protection Bindrune: Binding Our Will Into A Single Focus

For situations beyond our control, a protection bindrune might be necessary. They can protect the individual from harm or interrupt the behavior of another. For this bindrune, I decided to focus its energies into a sigil that helps and individual stand in their own power and more effectively communicate their needs and boundaries. As usual, I […]

A Battle Of Wills At The Expense Of The World

A Battle Of Wills At The Expense Of The World

I had intended to do a really nice tarot reading with the 3 of Swords, The World, and the 3 of Cups but when Donald started taunting Lil’ Un with threats of war on social media, I decided that a Thoth reading was better followed by a runecasting. We need to know what we’re facing […]

Radiating Our Eternal Presence ~ Runecasting for 17 July 2017

Radiating Our Eternal Presence ~ Runecasting for 17 July 2017

I’ve been working with runes for most of my life. Still, I always feel as if I’m beginning anew every time I cast them. I use runes for divination and create bindrunes for use in rune magick. I love Tarot, but runes are my go-to divination tool if I really need to understand or know […]

Allowing And The Illusion Of Control

Allowing And The Illusion Of Control

At first blush, Failure and Ruin don’t exactly portend a positive outcome with the Wheel of Fortune, but then that’s Tarot for you. Things aren’t always as they seem. Haindl uses Crowley’s titles for both the 7 of Stones (Disks in the Thoth Tarot) and the 10 of Swords respectively offering a negative connotation to […]
