Welcome Back to Monday! I hope everyone had a lovely long holiday weekend! After time off and celebration…it is difficult to get back into the flow of “regular” life…so to start our Monday off this week, I was drawn to pulling a Rune (from my set and book by Ralph Blum)…and here is the symbol that presented itself with its message for the week:
Laguz: Flow, Water, That Which Conducts
Message: “Unseen powers are active here, creative and fertile powers of Nature. The attributes of this Rune are water, fluidity, the ebb and flow of tides and emotions, of careers and relationships. Laguz fulfills our need to immerse ourselves in the experience of living…without having to evaluate or understand. It speaks to the desire for comfort and the satisfaction of emotional needs, to the lunar side of our nature. For while the sun strives for differentiation, the moon draws us toward unity and merging.
This Rune often signals a time for cleansing: for revaluing, reorganizing, realigning. A Rune of deep knowing, Laguz may call you to study spiritual matters in readiness for self-transformation. Success now lies in contacting your intuitive knowing, in attuning to your rhythms. A Rune of the Self relating rightly to the Self, Laguz signifies what alchemists called the conjunctio, or sacred marriage. In fairy tales, it is the end where the hero and heroine live happily ever after.”
from The Desk of MarDrag:
Well…there is most definitely a pattern emerging from the messages we have sought these past couple of weeks. This is the third in as many weeks that speak about Cleansing, Water, and Flow. I think a tide is turning…and we are being counseled to “go with the flow”…instead of against it. Laguz talks about the ebb and flow of life…as well as the active forces around us…and tells us to become as fluid as the water.
There may be changes or upheavals in our lives right now…but Laguz says we are not being called to evaluate them or understand them (just yet)…but to flow with them as they merge into our lives. Rather than trying to understand all that is going on, or change it…we should spend our energy on examining what holds value to us, and reorganizing our priorities. It calls on us to be in contact with our intuitive side…listening to that Inner Wiser Voice…and turning to the study of the spiritual aspect of life so that we may be in better touch with the Self. When the Self “relates rightly” with the Self…a deeper connection with our Spirit, Truth, and Power is created. A unity occurs…within and with the Self. It is in that unity that we find exactly what we desire to fulfill our needs.
Cleansing, water, tears and flow are the message here…so continue to cleanse yourself of negative energy and thought…rinse them away in the water…allow the cleansing tears to come…and go with the flow of what is happening (for now)…until the energy transforms…as it always does. Seek answers in the spiritual realm…because understanding in the physical is not within our grasp at the moment.
We are being called to Trust our paths…and the Wisdom of God and the Higher Powers and the Universe…and to take care of our own rhythms that guide us on that path. Be Present, See to our needs…and all, in the end, will be well.
