6. Describe the results of three divinations performed by you. These divinations may be text assisted. (minimum 100 words each)
5/5/2014, 7pm – Question from a friend
“My 90 days at Job2 is going to be up soon, and I’ll have health insurance. Should I turn in my 2 weeks today at Job1, or work both jobs for an extra 2 weeks and save up some extra money?”
- Peorth – an unpredictable outcome, a gamble
- Gyfu – a gift, reciprocity
- Eoh – yew tree, reliability, overlooked resources
- Rad – the journey
I’d say for sure you are supposed to stick it out at Job1 for another two weeks. There’s some risk to doing so, probably to your health (nobody likes working 2 jobs), but you’re doing your due diligence there and proving to be a reliable asset. And you shouldn’t overlook the resources that are an extra two week’s pay! You’re still on the journey to your new home with Job2, but you haven’t arrived yet.
5/2/2014, 8pm – Beltane Ritual, Live Oaks Study Group (not text assisted)
What blessings do the Ancestors offer us? Daeg – The Day, blessings that shine upon the poor and the wealthy alike. We are favored by the ancestors at this time, though it may not be for anything special that we are doing.
What blessings do the Nature Spirits offer us? Ear – The grave, finality, endings, sadness. This is a challenging blessing, but I see it representing the end of our study group as a separate entity. We will have growing pains as we integrate with the protogrove, and that may not be trivial, and will come with some amount of sadness.
What blessings do the Deities offer us? Rad – The journey. Even though there may be some challenges in front of us, the eventual outcome is that we’ll be where we’re needed most. And that place will become a home for us.
Note: After discussing the Omen, we decided to make additional offerings, as Ear seemed ill suited as a blessing. We drew an additional rune afterward, to see if those offerings were enough, and drew Is – things are not as nice as they seem, take careful action, go no further. We determined that this was a “tentatively yes, but get your stuff better organized next time” answer. (The ritual’s offerings were not well put together, and several had been left off of the organization list, and got skipped during the ritual.)
5/9/14, 6pm – Reading for a friend
Can you give me some insight into how to build my relationship with the kindreds?
- Cen (face down) – Torch – light, fire, creation, if uncontrolled – destruction
- Eoh (face down) – Yew – reliability, something overlooked, “all that is gold does not glitter”
- Gear (face down) – Year – fulfillment, reward for hard work, plenty, right order
- Eolh (face down) – Elk Sedge – protection, danger, careful action, warning
- Ior – Beaver/Eel – Adaptability, Flexibility
Fire in the head, reliable offerings, reward for hard work, protection/careful action, adaptability.
BE FLEXIBLE. The only rune face up in this reading suggests that this is the biggest sticking point, though I think the others are important as well. Make offerings, be reliable, don’t rush the outcome, be careful not to rush in, and everything will work out in the end.
Altogether, these runes made a reverse Nyd rune based on their position when I threw them on the table – Don’t make it harder than it needs to be.
