Plans: work 2nd shift
Ziu/Tyr, you chained the Fenris Wolf that threatened the worlds. We can’t do that, but we can do other things, some ordinary, others heroic. Remind us of your bravery and your sacrifice. Give us the courage and strength we need to fetter out own Fenris. Keep us mindful of our duties, and help us keep our fears bound as tightly as you bound old Slaver Mouth. Thus doing, we may we share in your glory by imitating you. ZIU/TYR HAIL!!
Born of fire, born of ice
Life is lived at such a price
Holy Runes send my way
Advice on how to spend the day
Teiwaz (U): The God Ziu/Tyr, one handed god of war and honor, justice, valor, uncompromising in judgments, victory in conflict, the spiritual warrior, self-sacrifice, motivated by a sense of justice, law and order, bravery, honesty, evenhandedness, warfare as a part of evolution, mental and emotional order.
Teiwaz (R): Outside the favor of Ziu/Tyr, the god of honor, without victory in conflict, injustice, imbalance, mismanagement, failure, dishonesty, compromised judgments, defeat, warfare without purpose, legal dilemma, the inability to fight for what’s right, void of the will to succeed, double standards.
Outcome: I LOVE pulling the Rune of the god for that specific day. HAIL TYR!
Meeka for an AM walk; some lady we met coming around the corner of Meridian and McCormick just extolled Meeka and how beautiful she was. I told her of the condition she was when I got her compared to how healthy and well-behaved she is now. I really am proud of this dog.
I’ve been wanting to experiment with the four-directions Rune reading; honoring the Norns and the Ancestors. Since a friend asked for a Rune reading this was the optimum time to experiment with it. Without mentioning names in order to protect privacy, here is the result.
-------------------------------------Rune Reading for a friend-------------------------------------------
Mannaz (U): The human, Heimdall; our genetic connection, cooperation between people, the human intellect, awareness, kinship, the ability to work well within a social structure and be effective within it, social interaction and order, perfected intellect, attract support from your peers, Divine structure.
My thought: this indicates this person is well adjusted socially.
The second Rune in the west to honor Urd, goddess of that which was:
My thought: This person has a very strong attachment to ancient Germanic heritage.
Rune placed in the south to honor Verdandi, goddess of that which is:
My thought: this person is a natural born leader
Next Rune is placed in the east to honor Skuld, goddess of that which may be:
Note: this person either is very strong and stable or will need to be!
In the north to honor the ancestors and represent how things will come together:
My thoughts: this Rune is an excellent way to cap off this reading
My final thoughts: One the one hand, this person has all the makings of success and happiness. If this person just holds on good things will come! On the other hand, if this person’s interest is largely about finding a relationship then this person may be too strong for the average significant other and it will take an equally strong or understating person to deal with this.
Keep in mind I place value in a reversed Rune. This reading is mostly made up of reversible Runes but came up positive. If any of these would have came up in a reversed position it would have changed the whole Rune dynamic and hence, the reading. This is truly an amazing reading!
--------------------------------------thus ends this reading----------------------------------------------
This is the first time dealing with the four-directions reading but it certainly wont be the last!
Audie is having a very challenging day…
Weight-bearing workout: 3 sets of 6 reps each
Work went okay; busy and tiring, but okay
JsMrFnChst! Another possum on the porch looking for an easy handout of kitty food in the bowl that Audie keeps outside, Meeka attacks, possum plays possum, Audie kills it by beating its head in with a hammer and dumping the cadaver in the trash. There will no longer be any more kitty food left on the porch to tempt these nocturnal critters.
PM Prayer: All you gods and goddesses bless and keep your Holy Folk. From the cold shadows of the glaciers to the colder shadows of space, always, we have been your people. Guide and guard your North folk as you did in ages past. Wodan/Odin, give wisdom and craft to wits shaped by ice and fire that our foes be foxed. Donar/Thor, give us strength and the will to use it. Ing Fro/Freyr and Frouwa/Freyja, give full wombs so that bodies will be found for the souls of heroes. Let your Northern Folk grow in number and in power, so that our kind may live, love, survive and thrive, not just today, not for a millennium, but for ever and ever!
PM Rune: none
