November 25th, 2018 – December 1st, 2018

Aries (March 21 – April 19) – Five of Swords

This week is full of conundrums what seem to keep you stuck between a rock and a hard place.  There are conflicts surrounding you that regardless of your decision or options seem to keep you at a loss.  Be patient, try to see the bigger picture and the things for what they are.  Pushing too hard against the current at this time will only leave you at a further disadvantage in the weeks to come.  Sometimes doing nothing is the best course of action.

Viking Rune – Othila (reversed) – “Separation”

This rune, reversed, is advising to take no further action at this time.  Remain open and honest in your view of things and in relaying your current position to those in your intimate circle.  There may be a point this week when you must release your old patterns or an old way of doing things, this will lead the way to your path and a period of calm.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) – Queen of Wands

This week you will have a choice to behave in either a mesmerizing, admirable way or through deceit and manipulation.  Choose wisely, Taurus.  The ability to have both sides is a gift if you make use of it wisely and with sincerity.  Be mindful that whichever course your take, you must pick up the pieces and commit to follow through on your beautifully woven or tangled path.

Viking Rune – Wunjo – “Joy”

This rune is advising you to acknowledge the skill, dedication, and sacrifice it has taken to get to this point.  It is time to reap what you have sown (so to speak).  It is advisable to continue with your charisma and ego in check, do not falter or be led astray by this accomplishment.  Remember, you have the ability to decide how you move forward in this new found joy and light.  

Gemini (May 21 – June 20) – Five of Wands

There are many obstacles coming your way, however, nothing you can’t manage.  Don’t let all of the minor challenges create a set back for you.  Remain strong and put your skills to work for you during this time.  Allow your inner warrior to come forth and blaze through the week with force and diligence.  You will come out ahead if you allow yourself too.

Viking Rune– Teiwaz (reversed) – “Warrior”

This rune is advising you to examine your battles this week.  Are they truly beneficial to you and your cause or are you simply trying to win out over another?  This will take some honest examination of the self, you do not need to ask the advice of others for the true answer lies within yourself.  Review your motivations and potential outcomes before you take on the challenges in the week ahead.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22) – Ace of Swords

This week provides new beginnings for you Cancer.  You will have the opportunity to use your abilities to be dignified, seeking truth and justice, or to lash out with your arrogance and haste.  Be mindful of the option you choose as it will set the stage for the upcoming changes in your life.  Be true to yourself, remain patient, and view all sides of the situation, including the potential outcomes, before wielding your mighty sword in declaration.

Viking Rune – Isa – “Standstill”

You are entering a time of self-reflection and isolation.  This can be thought of as the winter of your soul.  You may be feeling out of touch with life, drained, and as if your life is on hold.  If you are in a situation which leaves you feeling confused, remain patient, do not act, surrender is the best course of action.  After much self-reflection you will find your way and the spring will be upon you.

Leo (July 23 – August 22) – Five of Pentacles

You are unfortunately left feeling isolated and ostracized once again my Leo friend.  This card indicates hardships, remorse, and possibly regrets in all aspects of your life.  Take some time to connect with yourself and to reflect on what has led you to the point you are at.  Allow yourself to see new possibilities and to leave old patterns, ways of thinking and being behind you.  Do not be fearful of the change in direction and life, remain open and see the connection in all things.

Viking Rune – Kano (reversed) – “Opening”

Kano, reversed, is indicative of leaving a certain way of life behind you as it is not allowing for growth.  Gladly give up the old, whether it be a relationship, partnership, or some other part of yourself that is no longer beneficial for who you are.  This is a time to find inner stability so that you are able to recognize the new when it comes your way.  Staying focused on the momentum of your old way of being will no longer be conducive for you on your journey.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22) – Queen of Cups

You will be inclined to be creative this week.  Follow your intuition and heart as you move through this weeks occurrences.  Things will be smooth and flow with ease if you allow them too.  Release the pressure you are putting on yourself and allow things to happen as they will.  You have an aura that will allow you to gracefully maneuver anything coming your way over the course of the next week.

Viking Rune – Ansuz – “Signals” 

This rune is inviting you to expect the unexpected.  You will have several chance encounters this week which will allow for a new door to be opened for you.  Be aware of others motivations as well as your own.  Try not to behave in methodical, typical patterns.  Instead, allow the momentum of each situation to inspire you and allow your inner self to shine through.  Do not hesitate or hold yourself back, this is the first rune in the Cycle of Initiation, indicating that you are embarking on a time of self-discovery and opportunity for growth.

Libra (September 23 – October 22) – Seven of Swords

You are trying to get away with something, perhaps you have obtained something that is not rightfully yours: a position, a promotion, a partner, etc.  You are being haunted by the truth of your deceptions.  Now is the time to come clean, more to yourself, then perhaps to others.  This is not something that necessarily impact anyone else through the action itself, more through your behaviors and anxieties of the situation which are leaving you short tempered and impatient.  This is the week to look in the mirror and remain honest with yourself.

Viking Rune – Dagaz – “Breakthrough”

Dagaz is the final rune in the Cycle of Initiation.  It represents a transformation day.  You have reached a point where change is all that is before you.  A day of reckoning perhaps.  You must put to rest your old ways of being and remain open to the opportunities this rune presents.  Remember with transformation or change comes sacrifice, remain open, don’t get short cited, and trust in the moment.  To make way for new beginnings, an ending must occur.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) – Five of Cups

This week you are stuck in a mindset of ‘what could have been.’  You are tormenting yourself with loss and regret.  Allow yourself to have some level of sadness and remorse however you cannot become immersed in this sensation.  From these thoughts and feelings, you have the opportunity to initiate change.  Recognize your role in the feelings you are having and allow them to act as a catalyst for insight and growth.  To remain unchanged after carrying and experiencing such heavy emotions, you will be leaving yourself open for a future filled with days like these.

Viking Rune – Laguz (reversed) – “Flow”

Laguz reversed is indicative of your inability to follow your insight.  During your emotional reflections this week, open yourself to follow your intuitions.  Logic and restraint must be put on the back burner during this time.  Allow your senses to overwhelm you and lead you into your next course of action.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) – Three of Pentacles

This week you will need to rely on teamwork.  Exercise patience and remain open to assistance from others.  This is not a time to go it alone by remaining steadfast in your will.  Allow the comfort of others to strengthen you and provide warmth during this time of teamwork.  At the end of the week, look back and appreciate all that has been accomplished by remaining open to this way of being.

Viking Rune – Gebo – “Partnership”

Gebo is reminding you to remain your unique self during this time of partnership or teamwork.  You have the demeanor that allows you to become lost in the character and goals of others, this rune is here to tell you to appreciate the concept of the union and bonding but do not become so immersed as to lose your independence.  The sense in this is that by falling head over heels into this week, you are simply following an old pattern.  Be open but aware, this week could allow you to become your own worst enemy.

 Capricorn (December 22 – January 19) – Seven of Wands

You are being led into a situation that forces you to stand for what you believe and defend what is yours with honor and dignity.  This week be prepared to show courage and determination despite the actions of others.  Do not be led astray by the cunning abilities of those around you. Stand tall and use the skills and voice that you have to allow your truth to shine brighter than those who are pushing your limits.

Viking Rune – Thurisaz – “Gateway”

This rune is advising you to reflect on your life and where you are in it currently.  The message is that sometimes the best course of action is no action at all.  If you are feeling hesitant about standing up for yourself, then now is the time to search within to find out why.  What is it that is truly holding you back?  Do you have things to forgive yourself for or old wounds to care for?  If so, now is the time to do it.  You will be called into action during the weeks ahead and you must be prepared with a strong sense of self and mighty will.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) – The World

You have achieved what you want and obtained what you were after.  Now is the time to rejoice and count your blessings.  You are in a great position and are able to look at all you have accomplished with a sound peace of mind.  Be humbled by the world you have created through dedication, time, and hard-work.  Not everyone is able to have a time where everything so simply seems to fall into place at the most opportune time.  This is the blessing of true Aquarian nature.

Viking Rune – Jera – “Harvest” 

This rune symbolizes patience and cultivation.  The way in which to continue in this state you have achieved is to care for all its working parts.  This is the time to continue to nurture each aspect of your world so that it can continue to flow in harmony.  Exercising patience without becoming lazy or becoming controlling is the way to make this world of yours continue to turn in your favor.

 Pisces (February 19 – March 20) – Page of Swords

You are being advised to look at things logically and with a new lens.  You are tapping into a time of growth and opportunity.  Continue to remain focused and diligent as you gather all of the tools necessary to obtain prosperity.  Your calm demeanor will carry itself forth as you objectively view all of the possibilities laid out before you.

 Viking Rune – Mannaz (reversed) – “The Self”

This rune is advising you to look to yourself for answers.  To rely on others will leave you empty and not allow for the growth and reflection necessary for change to occur.  Take some time to reflect and consider new alternatives for the path ahead.
