Path Layout

Path Layout #1

 

 

Difficulty: Easy

For the Path, the querent asks for suggestions on how to behave properly in order to achieve a desired result. The Current column shows how the querent has been acting, and the Suggestedcolumn suggests how the querent should act in order to achieve a certain goal. The chart-like layout uses the standard 3 levels: Rational, Emotional, and External Stance (how one projects one’s self outwardly). When comparing the Current to Suggested runes, the most important thing is to notice the differences between the 2 runes. It is these differences which hint at the behaviors that you should think about changing.

Rune #1 is the significator, the rune which should reflect the nature of the query and/or the desired outcome.

Rune #2 shows the way you are and have been thinking. Rune #7 shows how you need to change the way you think in order to serve yourself better.

Rune #3 tells you about your emotional attitude. Though it may seem difficult to manipulate one’s own emotions, it can be done if you put your mind to it. For example, acting a certain way such as smiling intently for a few minutes will lead the emotions to follow. If you try this, as silly as the exercise seems, you will find that this evokes the emotion of happiness. For this reading, you should try to make yourself feel the way that Rune #6 tells you.

External Stance means how you act outwardly, how you hope others see you. Rune #4 tells you how you were acting, while #5 indicates how you should act outwardly, for other people’s sake. It is the differences between these runes that hint at what behavior patterns should be altered.

Jera

Jera is a rune of harvest, abundance, reward, fortune, completion, and putting things in order. The fruits of earlier labors are ripe for the picking. Abundant peace and contentedness due to a nice surplus. The promise of success earned. The life cycle of eternal change which rules the universe.

Ill-dignification can mean a sudden setback or reversal of fortune. A major change, bad timing, conflict, poverty, or getting stuck in a repeating loop.

Ansuz signifies the protection of Odin, concerned with man's connection with the universe, spiritual messages, learning, communication, and the spoken word. Signs, inspiration, visions, and the symbolic power of words and names.

Acceptance of good advice yields blessings in health, harmony, and wisdom. Non-acceptance of good advice results in manipulation by others, misunderstanding, and delusion.

Current External Stance

Othala

This rune is concerned with home, land, and property. What is truly important to one. Group order, group prosperity. Land of birth, spiritual heritage, experience and fundamental values. Inheritance. Aid in journeys.

Othala relates to marriage, family, and things which are fixed and unchangeable, set in stone. On a spiritual level this is a reminder that your body is the temple and home of your soul, a source of security, increase, and abundance.

Ill-dignification can mean lack of respect, totalitarianism, slavery, poverty, homelessness. Bad karma, prejudice, injury. This is a warning to take care of what you have if you care about it.

 

 

 

 

Suggested External Stance

Thurisaz

Thor, the Thunder god. Male core fertility. Thurisaz has to do with strife, conflict, combat, defense, and aggression. Reacting forcefully, as if theatened. 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.
