Retrocausality and the Well of Urd


Perhaps you are aware that some quantum physicists are theorizing around the possibility of choices made in the present having an effect on the past. The theory is known as retrocausality. Do click on the link if you want to learn more. It's written in plain English by someone who really knows their stuff.

I'm not going to try to explain what is in the article but I want to highlight that they talk about signalling into the past being forbidden and how this is different to making decisions that affect the past.

What fascinates me about retrocausality is that our ancient ancestors seem to have already known about this. Yggdrasil, the Tree of Life which represents all of existence, sits on top of the Well of Wyrd (also known as the Well of Urd / the past).

Sitting by the Well are the three Norns Urdr (past), Verdandi (present) and Skuld (future) signifying that at the deepest level of existence, you find yourself outside the time-space continuum where linear time does not exist.

There are forces unknown to us represented by these Norns (or fates) that draw on the nourishing waters of the Well of Urd and shape our destinies here in Midgård where the second law of thermodynamics make time appear linear.

However, the moisture rising from the Well of Urd falls back from the leaves of Yggdrasil into that same well... Droplets of the future affecting the past... That is something to meditate on, wouldn't you agree?

Have you ever had a feeling of making a choice that rewrote your past? Let me know in the comments!

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…
