Monday #Motivation #Meditation #RuneReading #DragonCard

This week’s theme seems to be about creativity and ways to let that energetic exchange flow.

I was drawn back to the runes this week for a reading and chose to use my set of moonstone runes.

The first rune in the past position is actually the last rune in the Elder Futhark alphabet, Othala. If you remember from our rune study, this rune represents our heritage, tradition, or family ties. Perhaps we are being encouraged to revisit our roots, our deepest ingrained beliefs. Othala can represent maintaining a status quo, the way things have always been done. In an ever-changing world, however, it’s up to us to distinguish between what is useful to hang onto and what needs to be discarded so that you can live and grow in your own authenticity.

The rune in the present position is Mannaz and symbolizes humanity. It represents the characteristics that set humans apart from the rest of Earth’s living creatures—the ability to create for the sake of creativity itself. It can also indicate the need to either ask for or give support or assistance.

The rune in the future position is Eihwaz, which you might remember symbolizes the yew tree (both death and regeneration). It can indicate an ending that will lead to a new beginning. Maybe you’ve come to the end of a project and looking forward to the next. Or, you may find yourself needing to leave behind old ways to make way for new and more authentic ways of living. Again, it goes back to the first rune and doing things the ways we always have while expecting something to change. It won’t happen.

My takeaway from this reading:

It is time to step strongly into our own truth, separate from perhaps the way our parents taught us to live and grow into our higher selves. When we do that, the energetic flow of creativity increases and it’s always okay to ask for assistance or offer help when you see someone struggling. Once we reach an ending, there is always a new beginning. If we want to bring about change, we have to start with ourselves.

I love this dragon card for the week. While the theme started out with creativity, it ends with change. Perhaps the two are connectively intertwined.

Have a great week!

  1. You know it’s been a busy week for me when I’m getting to your Monday post on Friday. Lol! I see an a connection with the dragon card and the Eihwaz rune. Whether it’s an ending or a new beginning, it’s a change. We just need to choose to embrace it (that’s the hard part…lol!). Great post, Jan! As always, I’ll get to the meditation on another day, but I’ll enjoy it when I do. 🙂

    1. Yes, my dear Yvette, it must have been a doozy of a week. But I’m glad you made it by. And I know you will enjoy the meditation whenever you have the time. It’s uplifting. I agree with everything you said about the reading and the dragon card. Definitely a correlation. Have a great weekend!

  2. Once we reach an ending, there is always a new beginning.
    So true!
    It’s easy to get discouraged when things go wrong (come to an end), but if we think of it in a positive light, new beginnings emerge- often better than before.

  3. Wonderful reading, Jan, and it is so perfect for this month. Change seems to be part of our lives, so much so that we can barely plan one day in advance. Thank you for showing us the path – via the stones. 😊

  4. I love that dragon and the reading. I do think we need to rethink things we are doung because that’s the way they have always been done. Nice to breakaway and do what works for us. I got my daughter the moonstone runes. We still need to sit down and work with them. Great meditation too. Perfect for a day of writing.

    1. If we continue to do the same thing and expect different results, we are in for a rude awakening. I agree. Nice to breakaway and do what works and serves our higher selves. How wonderful that you and your daughter can share an interest in the runes. That’s special!! Thank you for stopping by, Denise! Happy Writing!


    1. Oh, I’m so glad, Mary. I love it when there is validation. It seems that many of us have been rethinking the ways in which we do things just because it’s the way it’s always been done. Here’s to positive growth and change! I love the dragon cards, too! 🙂


    1. Very true, Staci! I love the dragon cards, too. We could all use a champion protector. And on some level, I believe we have that. We just can’t always feel or see it. Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week!
