Rune of the Day- Teiwaz, Sky God

Now when I picked this rune for the day, it was reversed, pointing down. The battle that is pointed out by this rune is the within. Letting the Supreme Power flow through us requires a will to act and to not be burdened by attachment to the outcome. When trying to understand the meanings behind the rune, we may seek comfort in the fact that the Universe always has the first move. The most aggressive warriors forget patience and try to overrun, when restraint is necessary. Only by taking the time to plumb the depths of our own selves can we hope to find the treasures that only we can bring forth. The message is about a triumverate patience, courage and dedication. It serves as a signpost to remind us to recommit to resolution of the battle between the self that we have created in our mind’s eye and the true self that lives within our hearts.

When reversed, Teiwaz points out a very real risk of pouring out our vital nature on frivolity. It reminds us to look closely into our own motives, are we pure and true to Creator’s will and our true purpose, or are we squandering our power trying to dominate another, craving the outcome, or through hasty action are we ignoring our authentic self, squandering our life force. It begs us to return to a more honest and authentic way of being in the word that reflects a wisdom of ages rather than aspiring to false power, egotistic fleeting pursuits and narcissism.
