My 2020 Rune Tarot Deck

Only three more days until the New Year! 2020 is going to be a depth year for me. Numerologically, I'm in an 8/Strength personal year and the corresponding rune is Wunjo. What better year to go deeper?

The year rune I pulled for 2020 is Kenaz, a rune of wisdom, inspiration, creativity and illumination. Kenaz is a good fit with The Hierophant, one of my stalker cards in 2019. I kind of have a hunch that I was being stalked by this card precisely so that my ancestors could finally get my full attention.

A depth year is about getting focused, decluttering and getting rid of distractions. It's about paring things down to only what is truly useful and necessary. It's about frugality, recycling and upcycling. It's about diving deeper into wisdom teachings as well as connecting more deeply with Spirit on a soul level.

Over the past few days I have been contemplating using just one Tarot deck for my personal readings in 2020. In the end I decided to go with my beloved Grimaud Tarot de Marseille.***

It's hard for me to put words on why I feel this deck to be especially magical. It's not one of the prettier Marseille style decks out there. Heck, it doesn't even shuffle all that well for me, due to the thickness of the cards. It's a crude and 'clunky' deck... and maybe that's why I like it so much. There is no artifice in this deck and it makes me feel as if I'm using something that was very much the same hundreds of years ago.

I also wanted a deck that I could work with for rune correspondences. I have seen many such lists of correspondences over the years and none of them made much sense to me. Then, this morning, I came across this video on the Sacred Seed chanel. You can see the list of correspondences in the info section. This list made immediate sense to me, so I inscribed the runes on my Grimaud deck accordingly. The white backgrounds are good for inscribing the corresponding runes.

Obviously, I will still use my other decks for client readings and teaching etc. More than likely, I will keep shrinking my collection in the year to come though. If a deck doesn't fill me with Wunjo, it's better off in the home of someone who does have that connection with the deck.

I'm pretty much all set for 2020 now and I have my birch twig broom at the ready for clearing out stale, old energies on New Year's Eve. Then I will do my year head reading with my customized Rune-Tarot deck... can't wait!

Do White People Have a Right to Reclaim their Ancestral and Tribal Roots?

Today, I'm blogging a response to an article on Medium because I stumbled on this article right after my daily Oracle post (which was very much about reclaiming ancestral roots), and felt deeply moved to rebutt the notion that white people have no right to reclaim their ancestry or tribal roots.

The author of the original article makes a lot of very strong statements, lumping all 'white people' together:

"White people already have a bunch of ancestry. We’ve recorded it for centuries. Other peoples are not so fortunate because white supremacists ensured that they would not have family history through slavery or genocide.
So all that you’re doing by 'reclaiming ancestry' is defining something that can be used to discriminate against others, NOT of your ancestry, and put us all into categories.
I say, drop the idea RIGHT NOW, that anyone is 'reclaiming' anything. You are already white."
The article is quite obviously written by an American becaus…

March 2020 Forecasts Pick-a-Pile Rune & Tarot Readings

Happy Odin's day, my friends. I thought I'd get the March pick-a-pile rune and Tarot readings out to you a couple of days early this time.For this month's readings we are working with Legend - The Arthurian Tarot (affiliate link) and the set of runes I made a couple of weeks ago.

Mercury is still retrograde at the start of the month. For guidance on the current retrograde and a bespoke Tarot spread, chek out this post. Mercury stations direct on the 4th of March.

Mars is a big player this month, conjuncting the current stellium of planets in Capricorn and re-energising issues we dealt with back in January, some of which we will be forced to revisit - hopefully with a better outcome this time!

The March Super Full Moon in Virgo happens on 9 March at 17:37 GMT. If you feel you need more info on this lunation, I recommend this video by Pam Gregory.

The spring/autumn equinox falls on Thursday, March 19.

The New Moon in Aries happens on Tuesday, 24 March,at 09:28.

February Forecasts Pick-a-Pile Rune, Tarot and Oracle Readings

Hello my friends, I hope you are well and looking forward to all that February will bring. I think we can all safely say that we are glad to see the back of January that lasted forever and seemed to bring very little but bad news and ends with the UK divorcing the EU + concomitant threats of continued austerity. This morning I came across a relatable tweet where someone said:

"I have come to the end of my free one month subscription for 2020 and would like to cancel the subscription."

Okay, so January was tough for many of us both individually and on a global level but quitting is not an option.

Resisting the bad just makes it last longer, both in the subjective (time is relative) and the objective sense. Time to shift gears and begin to look forward to spring and what we can actually DO to make this world a bit better...

The February Full Moon in Leo happens on 9 Feb at 07:33 GMT. For astrological forecasts for your respective Sun and Rising signs, I recommend Nightlight As…
