Greetings Beloved Kin,
I was inspired to learn something about the Runes. There are only 24 in the basic set. I figured the angles had to have something to do with it, and they are easy understand. Straight lines are absolute things. Curvy lines may be matters that require a human choice. Two lines represent the Spirit’s journey from the lower to the higher realm. (Left, the spirit side and Right, the Human side.) In between the lines is our Center within. That’s what I’m going on for now.
These were the cards I pulled at the beginning of the Sun/AHAU trecena. The first card is the overview (see instruction card). The Othala symbol shows both the left and right arrows/angles are pointed to the center – facing each other by intention (I think angles are pointing to the direction of movement). Together, they are both in agreement about something above. (The translation is given on the Othala card.) The center card, Fehu, is the challenge. This isn’t hard to imagine as human opening its arms to receive from above. And, the possible course of action, card 3, is Laguz. From the human/right side, the intention reaches to the top of the scale between the down below and up above.
The only way to teach our subconscious mind anything is through an experience. Symbols make us think and discern an experience of truth. Our mind doesn’t know the difference between a real or imagined experience. And, it can’t hurt imagining the top of the scale… at least for the reasons written on the card.
Is the Word written in every language on every scale? The Bible is no less an Oracle, you can turn to any story on any page. A Divine Creator will speak to us any way we ask to know. It’s the same story on every scale from the macro to the micro, and in every experience from the bottom to the top. There IS no place we can go where God isn’t there.
love, in lak’ech
THE TRECENA OF SUN/AHAU: DANCING IN THE LIGHT
6 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Cherokee, Serpent Do’tsi)
Galactic Tone 6: Flow. Six is responsiveness and the art of negotiation. It is the movement of volume through space that creates time. This energy in action is like the art of dance or a great athlete in motion. Six facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life.
Serpent/CHICCHAN: Movement and the creation of time. Sensual and dramatic, this sun sign embodies intense instinctual wisdom and creates a connection from Earth bound, to Heavenly aspirations. By sincere service to others, Serpent opens and expands its heart. Serpent aligns authority and the truth to bring justice that is quick and sure. Serpents are very adaptable, even fluid until trapped in a corner, and then they explode. Serpents, venomous temper poisons itself as well as others by creating resentful, suppressive and even destructive attitudes.
Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI: Serpent’s symbol is Constellation Serpens. Serpent people are Sky people who come to earth periodically as Educators. As above-So below, on Earth the Serpent is the roots of the tree of knowledge. Serpent power is vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, the trigger that sets off the action. It lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself. Knowledge, combining science, technology and psychology, plus spirituality are seeded on the planet.
