rune pairs: nauthiz | thurisaz

©2021 Michael Raven

fettered by the past
and present, too
charged air itself seems poised
for thunder and light
to come crashing forth
tempering fresh steel
for the times
now waking

nauthiz: necessity, need, recognizing one’s ørlǫg, resistance, constraint, overcoming adversity

thurisaz: awakening, lightning, break resistances in mind/body/spirit, conflict, psychological problems, catalyst

Note: There is no divinatory question being considered, but merely an investigation into the relationships the runes might suggest as they come together. For these exercises, I am not considering the murkstave implications from the drawing, but focusing exclusively on the core concepts. At a later date I may consider the implications presented by a reversed rune — possibly when I start casting the runes in a more traditional way — but I am more intent on learning the primary meanings and making connections via wyrd at this time.
