Elder Rune Summons:
Born of fire, born of ice
Life is lived at such a price
Elder Runes in your way
Advise the mortal man today
Elder Rune: Pertho: Dice cup, issues concerning: the lucky roll of the dice, questions of luck, the consideration of Wurt/Urlag (the ordeal of Humankind), the Wurtâ; Urda (that which was), Werdanda (that which is becoming) and Sculd (that which is owed), the realization of hidden potential, interwoven yet independent Wurt, good fellowship and happiness, secrets revealed, the collective consciousness, the Well of Knowledge for true growth.
The presence of negative Wurt, an unlucky roll of the dice, bad luck, secrets remaining secret, delusions, fantasies, megalomania, outside the collective/individual consciousness, out of touch with reality, negative forces set in motion, that which is unknowable, the need to deal with uncertainty, unpleasant contractions of birth pains, secrets remaining secret, take no chances.
Armanen Rune Summons:
Born of fire, born of ice
Life is lived at such a price
Armanen Runes in your way
Advise the Spirit man today
Armanen Rune: Is:
A ninth one I sing, when dangers at sea forces me
To protect my ship from the stormy waves;
The storm I calm down, no matter how billowing the sea,
And I cradle the waves to sleep.
Calm in the face of distress, comfort, hypnotic power of the forceful will, course of affairs, Rest, Ego, das Ich, Positivity, activity, personal will, self-domination, self-control, confidence, determination, extension of the Divine center, the upright human being, the awakened Self, influence, personal power, magical power, power to banish evil, unity in the Universe, duration, action in the Cosmos, activity, will, self-domination, influence, personal power, self-discipline, unity in the Universe, duration, magical powers, axis/column/Irminsul of the world, action in the Cosmos, elimination of that which is unnecessary, calm.
“Win power over yourself and you will have power over everything in the spiritual and physical worlds that strive against you” (List, 56).
Rune Lesson: With the proper amount of good luck comes some serious calm. Something can be said for resting in luck. With good luck, we ride the waves of free will.
1st check on all fur-kids: food, water, litterboxes, shelter.
Outcome: 7hrs of solid sleep and lots of Lily loving.
Brief wifey conversation
Made a fruit smoothie for wifey and me,
Three eggs sunny side up, hashbrowns, three strips of turkey bacon and whole wheat toast topped with strawberry jelly.
Toby and I out for an early afternoon, three block, well behaved, roundy. There was considerable amount of Toby-prancing!
*mostly cloudy, mildly cool, NNE breeze.
Note to Self; Toby’s 1:30pm feeding and insulin
Lots of online searches for the Feminine Divine.
Triple turkey bologna in strips and a whole wheat tortilla with bbq sauce + an apple.
The front yard doesn’t look horrible, so I’m not going to tend to that. What DOES look horrible is the fence row, and around THINGS in the backyard. I guess I have to make up for the shortcomings she either doesn’t want to or can’t seem to do. Now the back yard is trimmed a bit better.
Made wifey some bacon wrapped asparagus for Mother’s Day; ALWAYS welcomed!
Made myself a couple of chicken patties topped with cheese and salsa + steamed asparagus.
Prepped some German coleslaw. Now it has to sit for 24hrs.
2hrs of Ghost Whisperer on Start TV (OTA)
*I’ve seen both of them. I may start watching them from the beginning on Hulu.
Yup, started it; Ghost Whisperer S1 Es 1and 2 on Hulu.
Note to Self; Toby’s 12:30am feeding and insulin.
Last check on all fur-kids.
1:45am nighty night
