rune trios: sowilo | kenaz | nauthiz

©2021 Michael Raven

straining against deep roots
immutable, those lots already cast
their ropes cannot constrain
i follow the sun
stretching, reaching
the cusp of change
burning, searing within

sowilo: “sun”; guidance, optimal health, success, victory, wholeness, taking action, optimism, invigoration; murk: poor advice, gullibility, misguidance, stagnation, lost, failure

kenaz: “torch”, knowledge, enlightenment, cunning, acquisition of knowledge, transformation, illumination, female occult secrets; murk: disease, ignorance, lack of humility, arrogance, elitism

nauthiz: “necessity”, need, constraint, friction, “no pain, no gain”, hard work, understanding ørlǫg, self-reliance; murk: toil, distress, guilt, ignoring personal needs, worry, laziness

Argument: Ever evolving this process, I have decided that three is a sacred number for runes (as is nine) and have expanded the number of runes to include in my exploration. Please do not confuse this for a wyrd reading, there is no divination implied in these rune explorations. However, there is always shamanic and internal alchemy being explored.
