The Old Norse runes, known as the Elder Futhark, have longed joined forces with the cycles of the reasons to offer powerful initiations, guidance and wisdom. Aligning the sacred festivals, paintings, and harvests of ancient runic calendars with our modern 12-month-calendar, Kelly Harrell reveals how the runes can once again offer initiations as well instruct us on the holy days and creative rhythms of today.
Drawing on her more than 25 years of shamanic practice and runic study, Harrell offers a step-by-step primer to work with the runes throughout the year. She explores the meaning of each rune in detail and presents structured runic devotions for each half-month, interwoven with guidance of how to make the best use of the life force available for each season. She details the runes most powerful during each half-month, what they portend for personal and spiritual well-being, techniques for creating relationships with them, and how to work with them as an oracle.
By moving through Natures cycle with the runes, each year becomes a reliable and trackable process of personalised growth and spiritual connection.
