2012 the gift of gebo

A rune of exchange - giving, sharing, receiving of power, psychic journeying of two or more people to create a physical or magical result or exchange between gods and humanity.

Considered a rune of the Vanir.... especially the goddess Gefion - the goddess horsewhipped at the royal centre in Denmark.

Also governs more esoteric exchanges, especially exchanges of energy or magical power, whether between individuals or between humans and gods.

A new summer...... solstice

When we move into the north and are faced with the unpredictable force of fire, glimpsing or even grasping a greater understanding of our own power, there is suddenly a deep comfort in sensing the path that runs from there back to the south. Reaching out into the the high blue sky, up to the glorious shining sun, we become poignantly aware of the state of our roots and all that is keeping us grounded and stable. If our foundations are shaky, our stretch will be disastrous. Our actions, ungrounded, will have no secure basis and the energy will be burnt up without purpose.

We call this the place of the wild, the untamed, the unpredictable. It is often seen as the height of masculine or male energy, of assertiveness, thrust, push and growth, the linear and overt: the opposite of the dark embrace of the south. It is the place of power... it is the spark of our courage, felled by the oxygen of our thoughts and the old wood of our past experience, all of which make the fire that is our drive.

All too often the north is avoided...but avoidance doesn't teach us. To learn, to grow, we must stop, find out courage...we turn to look at the beliefs we hold about power. We look at the energy, the unpredictability... We acknowledge the thoughts which we've not allowed the energy they need to express themselves, fearing just what me might do if we did. We come to understand what we believe to be strength, courage, power, both within our adult minds and also the depths of our subconscious, where our attitudes are those of the child and the wounded.

(ref: Restall Orr, 1998 p134)

And so I reach out again, with sturdier foundations and a more courageous heart, I reach for the high blue sky and acknowledge and draw upon the masculine energy of the season. I accept the unpredictable and the wild and I am open to learning through asking. I see the power of the creative and I am in touch with the aching need for transformation


"Dance untill you shatter yourself"


 I dance to shed my skin, to peel away the layers that keep me separate. 

I have listened to my body speak to me, read the symbolic language within my cells, soul codes reactivating memories of an ancient past, etheric blue print looping in the same patterns time after time, life after life.

a pictorial explanation

from somewhere deep inside emerges the renewed.....

new feet on the same path

Magic is not just in the breakthrough. It isn't only the wild screaming of breaking the mind, the crashing out of our box of expectations, not about what happens when we have opened our nemeton and danced through the exquisite beauty of vibrant perception. ..magic is also about what we do next.

With her sense of self sufficiently clear, conscious of her own soul music... With finely tuned tools of resonance, using her voice and instruments, using words and sound, she creates magical change, shifting energies, emotions, beliefs and even memories.
(ref: Restall Orr,  2008:182)

Striding purposefully forward, she encounters all experiences with courage and strength, knowing that as a result of her transformation, she has the tools and intention to walk with all her fears, acknowledge her anxieties and reach for her pleasures and joy.
