Mannaz wraps up its role as half-month rune this week, with Laguz flowing into place. This transition brings a shift from mindfully situating into new or unexpected community to a more internal emotional well of introspection. On the intuitive front, Fehu reversed suggests we be a little stingy with resources for a bit.
Mannaz remains the half-month rune through 29 April, at which Laguz shifts to the fore. Read right to left in the image is Mannaz on top, Laguz below, then Fehu reversed to the left. Learn more about the half-month rune's influence and my work with the runes. Find my runic artwork on Etsy.
Laguz brings the inner landscape into sharper focus, which when taken into consideration alongside the bestowal of community we experienced with Mannaz, may challenge boundaries a bit. It's hard enough to enter new territory with others when rebuilding the self -- as we have been. It's even harder to do so under the current runes, because empathy may be in overdrive.
Reading Fehu reversed is fairly straightforward: when upside down, our possessions fall out of our pockets. What's certain is the frustration of the efforts of hard work falling through our fingers, and the refinement of focus from a dangling carrot to what assets are most needed at this time.
Really, this week is a reminder not to fall back into old habits. New self, new group, new boundaries. Don't get sucked into other peoples' drama and lose that focus. Don't get turned upside down, though if it happens, see it for what it is. Hold onto that new wealth.
