Cross Layout

Cross Layout

 

 

Difficulty: Easy

The Cross Spread is good for questions asking for advice. It can also be used to determine the meaning of a confusing rune from a previous reading, or for that matter, to shed light on other points of confusion.

In questions asking advice, this layout is self-explanatory. The main thing is to determine the difference between runes #2 and #3. #1 is the topic and #4 is the result.

In questions regarding confusion, such as: "What was the meaning of Rune (X) in the last layout?" the main thing is also to determine the difference between runes #2 and #3. In this case, #2 will show what the rune was not referring to, and Rune #3 will show what was really meant. Rune #1 is the topic and #4 represents the purpose it serves.

It Deals with This

Ingwaz

This is the rune of male health, fertility, creativity, gestation, and personal growth. Common sense, simple virtue, family, home. The spark of a new idea could start a fire. Often relates to a pivotal point, perhaps a rest stage, a time of relief, of healing and regeneration. A time when loose ends can be tied, freeing one to possibly move in a new direction. You must listen to yourself.

Ill-dignification can suggest impotence and circular movement. Production, labour, work.

 

 

 

 

Do NOT Do This

Elhaz

Elhaz is concerned with security, protection, and defence. Warding off of evil, shield, guardian. Connection with the gods, awakening, higher purpose, divine inspiration, channelling energy or spirits, spiritual enlightenment. This rune is connected to shamans and alternative medicine that are no longer popular in today's society. May indicate a need of retreat for introspection.

Follow your instincts. Elhaz warns that people may want to push you into doing something against your will. You must stand your ground to maintain the rewards of your success or to maintain a position earned.

Ill-dignification warns you to watch for people taking advantage of you. Be careful not to take on their burdens. Can mean hidden danger, deception, confusion, reversal of fortune, weakening of the divine link. Taboo, warning, peril, repugnance. A creative drought.

 

 

 

 

DO This

Thurisaz

Thor, the Thunder god. Male core fertility. Thurisaz has to do with strife, conflict, combat, defence, and aggression. Reacting forcefully, as if threatened. Instinctual will, eroticism, a catalyst for change. A purging flood, a cleansing fire, catharsis.

This rune suggests that now may not be the best time to make any hasty decisions. Perhaps time should be set aside to reflect.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It Leads to This

Eihwaz

Eihwaz is a rune of progress. The desire for material gain provides motivation and a sense of purpose. It indicates a plan being formulated and moving forward. May indicate a person who can be trusted. Some keywords are: honesty, dependability, reliability, endurance, strength, defence, protection.

Ill-dignification can mean: confusion, delays, disturbance, destruction, dissatisfaction, weakness.
