Pick A Rune – 6/11/2021

No Comments
Today’s choices feature Iolite (left), Labradorite(center), and Rose Quartz (right). I am casting with my buffalo teeth Runes.

If you are new here, Welcome. This is a special gift to my followers that I do to help you understand my Rune Magic, learn about Crystals, and, most importantly, the messages of the Runes. Look at the photo either above, or the closer up shot below, and feel the energy. Which one calls to you? Close your eyes. Then open them. Where do your eyes land first? Choose that one. Let the Universe know which one you choose by commenting here (Right, Center, or Left). If you already commented over on Instagram, go below for the reveal. Remember, these readings find you when you need to hear it. If you miss this one, I’ll be doing another soon and that one just may find you.

Pick a Rune: Left, Center, or Right? Comment below with your choice and then see the reveal of the Rune Casting and the reading for your choice.

Just a quick reminder before the reveal below, I have a Special Summer Solstice Reading available that includes 8 Runes and Oracle cards around a Solar Wheel Mirror. Offerings are given just for you. There are only 9 of these available right as of this posting. You can find them in my Magical Flea Market Etsy Shop. See what this Summer has in store for you with this special seasonal reading.

Iolite is a rare stone used in healing to facilitate inner journeying. Any realizations that come from such inner journeying can have profound effects on your life.

Hagalaz is the Rune with messages for you today. Ooh, baby! This transformation has been a rough one, but you are the most boldest and beautiful butterfly now. You’ve emerged from the goo of the cocoon and finally are taking deep breaths in your new power. Those hardships have made you not only a new you, but a more confident and radiant you. Don’t be surprised if you’re attracting not only new and positive attention, but a few wasps. Don’t share your milkweed with them. Find locations in the sun without them.

Labradorite belongs to a group of minerals called feldspars that are commonly found in the earth’s crust. In healing, this stone is considered to hold powerful Magic. It helps awaken supersensory abilities and the awareness of other states of energies.

Ingwaz is our Rune casted for the center choice. The Earth is calling for you to help it. How are you helping it? Are you taking control of how your home and family help the Earth rest and find relief? Where could you improve? Ingwaz wants you to know that it’s less work to help heal the Earth than to let her toil under stress. You will find new growth and a lessening of anxiety when you focus on this path. If you are wanting to increase your family, now is the time to take action on that.

Rose Quartz is a crystal you should have first and foremost. So versatile. So powerful. Used to open the heart chakra and bring more love in our lives, it can also help soothe anxiety and bring about more restful sleep.

Tiwaz has a message for you: stop sacrificing for those who don’t hold you in high regard. Giving until it hurts is not working for you here. Continuing to do this will only bring more negativity and potentially lead to a volatile situation where only more misery is harvested. Stop. Reassess. Protect your energy. And put that sacrifice back into serving your health, business, and/or relationships. It’s not necessary to be unkind when you stop giving your resources to people and areas of your life that aren’t giving you a return. Just stop. Set boundaries. Move on.

Thank you for allowing me to read for you. Hope your Eclipse Season brings you the clarity and peace you seek. Don’t forget to cleanse and align.

Blessed Be,

~Runa

Pick A Rune – 5/7/2021

Pick a Rune: Left, Middle, or Right. Hag Stone, Aragonite, or Bloodstone.

Want the Runes to give you even more messages and guidance? Consider booking an annual, quarterly, or triple Rune Casting from yours truly. You can message me to book at Runa@CountryDwellers(dot)com or via my Etsy shop, Magical Flea Market.

See the reveal and the reading below:

The Hag Stone on the Left, formed by the strong energy of water, it is used for protection and warding. Aragonite in the center is helpful in grounding, performing Earth magic, or Root Chakra work; on the right we have Bloodstone, used in Craft work to strengthen intuition and find the path to healing.

The message today from Fehu has to deal with your spiritual wealth. If you have not protected your sacred time to enhance your spirituality, this is your message to focus on your spiritual life to increase the abundance you receive from such work. Quit making excuses and set the time aside for craft work, meditation, yoga, and even just walking barefoot in the grass. Perhaps you need to wander along the water’s edge and find your own Hag Stone.

Aragonite has brought Sowilo forward, which is the Rune of personal energy. You have the inner drive to transform, but you’re going to need self-control and discipline to continue the positive direction. Keep your ego in check. Always be humble and kind.

The Bloodstone holds up the Rune Wunjo Merkstave (reversed). This is your reminder not to isolate yourself. Everyone needs some solid interaction even in small doses. Do be mindful of possible betrayals near you. Check yourself before you wreck yourself, just like your mama used to tell you.

Thank you for allowing me to provide this divination for you. I hope the messages lead you to your truest self and best life.

Blessed Be,

~Runa

Today’s Readings was done after making an offering to Freyja, and all the energy she represents. Since these readings will now take place on Friday, it seemed only right. The Buffalo Teeth Runes were used, hosted by (1) Chalcedony; (2) Lilac Kunzite; (3) Apache Tear.

Thank you all, once again, for honoring me with providing this reading for you. The energies following the Full Moon in Scorpio this past week are still strong. Messages have been clear and many. If you’re new here, for this reading, please pick one of the Runes. Look at them, understand that the stones next to them hold energies that very much may be calling to you. Look away or close your eyes for a moment. Open your eyes again. Where did your eye land first? Was it to the left with the stone, Chalcedony? Was it to the right with the Apache Tear? Or did it land smack dab in the middle with the Lilac Kunzite? Whichever you picked, the reveal and reading is below.

*************

From Left to Right, the Runes cast are: Laguz, Ansuz, and Kenaz. For their messages, see below.

*************

If you chose the Chalcedony Rune, you are wanting to bring your mind, body, and spirit into harmony.

Laguz is the Rune that has been cast for you. It is full of water energy and understands you want relief from hostility and to transform your melancholy into joy. What you dream of is not a fantasy. Laguz bears the message that if you can imagine it, you can make it happen. Pay attention to your dreams for more information for the path forward.

If you chose Lilac Kunzite, it’s likely you are needing some free expression of your feelings or needing to connect with people who have experienced what you have.

Your choice has brought you a message for Ansuz, the Rune of ancestors and the Allfather. Your inner child is in need. It longs for creative expression and to live the vision of life you know you want. Forget the heartache, it is blocking you. Align that Heart Chakra and go for that which you desire. What battles did your ancestors already fight so that you could live a better life? Honor them by living your best life as your truest self.

If you chose Apache Tear, you are seeking protection and grace.

If you chose Apache Tear, you know that grief must be shared, and the wrongs of old healed. Kenaz is the Rune cast for you today and it is a Beacon of New Strength. You recognize the gentle support you have been given to move forward past that which is no longer serving you. You know the guiding light in your life directs you to vibrate higher and to harness your power. Fry Scrying may provide you further direction forward.

It’s Taurus Season! And Witch Wednesday! So Pick A Rune and let’s not pull any bull, ok?

In honor of Taurus season, we have #1 Rune paired with Malachite; #2 Rune paired with Petrified Wood; and #3 Rune paired with Howlite. Look at the photo, which Rune is whispering to you? Which stone’s energy pulls you in? Choose one and see the reveal below.

*************

In case you needed a closer look…

Spring is in full swing for most of us in the Northern Hemisphere, whereas our Southern Hemisphere friends and family are preparing for winter. It’s a busy time wherever you find yourself. So what messages do the Runes have for us today?

If you picked: #1 Malachite, your Rune is Uruz; #2 Petrified Wood, your Rune is Algiz; #3 Howlite, your Rune is Laguz.
Uruz is in Freyja’s aett. As for Malachite is a stone for warriors and is able to enhance passion for life and the energy to be true to one’s unique purpose.

If this was your pick, you need to know that this Rune is the Mother of Manifestation. Where have you planted seeds that need tending? Get to it because now is the time to shape and form your circumstances creatively through will and inspiration. Your dreams are realized through a bit of watering and composting.

Algiz is in Heimdall’s aett. Petrified Wood is associated with Taurus because of its powerful Earth Energy. It used to be a living tree, after all. It carries with it the healing power and wisdom of nature.

If you chose #2, Algiz is the Rune most associated with protection, especially that which the Earth provides. This is the Rune that connects the gods and humanity. Right now you are being called for a higher purpose. Are you listening? What steps can you take to live in this higher vibration?

Laguz is in Tyr’s Aett. Howlite is often used to calm an anxious mind; it opens the mind to wisdom.

Choice #3 is full of Watery energy, washing ashore the Earth energy of Taurus season. Laguz represents the primal waters that bring all life. This is a potent rune of initiation. What new things are you letting into your life? Are they serving you? Are they feeding your magic? This is the time to take inventory and let goodness wash over you and let anything that isn’t serving you flow away.

Thanks again for allowing me to divine for you again this week. If you appreciate the work I do, please let me know in the comments below. If you’re interested in a deeper Runic Reading, feel free to message me about booking either a 3-rune, quarterly, or annual reading.

Have a great week,

Your Weekly Rune Casting from Runa Troy

From Left to Right: Turquoise, Calcite, or Chrysoprase

These are intended to find you when you need the message. Instead of actual crystals this week, I was called to use my Crystal Oracle Deck — this Crone doesn’t just use Runes for divination and messages from the Universe. And we’re using everyone’s favorite Bison-Teeth Rune set. Look at the photo. Where does your eye go? Close your eyes or look away and where does your heart say to go? Left? Middle? Right? Turquoise, Calcite, or Chrysoprase? Leave a comment below with which one you choose, please. Thank you again for spending a little bit of time with me on Witch Wednesday! Reveal is below…

*************

Reveal Below

*************

Turquoise is a protective stone and promotes spiritual attunement and enhances communication with both the spiritual and physical worlds.

The Rune pulled here is Algiz, the Elk Spirit, full of protection. Given that it’s paired with Turquoise protection is a huge focus for this message. Where is your refuge and sanctuary? Have you ignored making sure you have that space? With our own sacred spaces, we can channel our energy and stand in our power and commune with the Divine. Get yours squared away and nest in its healing protection.

Calcite is a powerful amplifier and cleanser of energy.

Othalla is the Rune of Ancestral Property. The message today surrounds around fundamental values, yours, your ancestors, and your descendants. Are you living your values? Your beliefs? If not, the message is to live what you believe, talking about them is not enough. You will not be remembered for the things you have, but how you treat the creatures of the world. What positive deeds can you do today?

Chrysoprase is a great stone for when you want to promote love of truth, hope, and personal insights.

Raidho is riding its wagon on Chrysoprase right now, which means that your progression towards love, truth, hope, and wisdom is moving forward. Remember you decide your path, no one else. Also, you won’t get to your destination unless you have the right frame of mind, so ground, center, and root and move forward again.

Thanks again for allowing me to divine for you again this week. If you appreciate the work I do, please let me know in the comments below.

Have a great week,

It’s Witch Wednesday!

Your Weekly Pick-A-Rune from Runa Troy. Pick one that speaks to you. #1 is Desert Rose; #2 is Fossil Amber, #3 is Snowflake Obsidian. Which did you choose? Comment below.

At this point you should know the drill. Pick the one that makes you keep looking at it. Is that the first, second, or third? Comment below with your choice. This week we’re using the Tiger’s Eye rune set and featuring some very healing stones alongside.

*************

Here is your weekly Pick A Rune Reveal. #1 Desert Rose with Raidho; #2 Fossil Amber is Sowilo; and #3 Snowflake Obsidian is Gebo. See below for readings.
Raidho is the Rune of movement and travel, also known as the Chariot or Wagon Rune. Desert Rose is a great crystal to help improve self-confidence.

If you picked number one, the message today is about recognizing that your journey on your current path is about evolution. It’s time to check and make sure that you are evolving, becoming your truest self and living your best life. If this is not the case, it’s time to switch directions.

Sowilo is the rune of the Sun; Fossil Amber is not a crystal at all, but a tree resin that solidified and became fossilized. It has strong connections with the earth and is a grounding stone for higher energies.

If you chose number two, the message this week is to know that wholeness is on the horizon for you. Be sure to honor your partnerships so you may garner even more success.

#3 is Gebo, the Rune of Gifts. Snowflake Obsidian is a great crystal to carry if you are having issues with your skin or eyes. It is said to improve circulation with its energy.

If you picked number three for our Pick-A-Rune this week, then the message is to examine where you protect and serve the Earth. How are you doing your part for a stable, safe, and sustainable home? When you work with Mama Nature, not only do you reap the benefits, so do those around you.

Thanks again for allowing me to divine for you again this week. If you appreciate the work I do, please let me know in the comments below.

Have a great week,

#WitchWednesday

This week’s PIck-A-Rune features Bison Teeth Runes and Iolite, Labradorite, and Charoite.

Look at the picture above. Now look away. When you look back, what calls to you? That’s your number. Note it here in the comments, or if you have already done this on my Instagram, then look below for the reveal. We’re in Aries season now, and the primal fire is hot.

*************

1) Iolite is Ingwaz; 2) Labradorite is Wunjo; 3) Charoite is Jera.
#1 – Iolite & Ingwaz.

#1 – Iolite & Ingwaz: The full moon is coming and you need to tie up loose ends. With those chores done you can release that anxiety that has been hanging around and truly rest. Take a day off from everything as soon as you can. Venture deep into nature. Dig your toes in the sand, your hands in the soil; or your back against a tree. Let the sun shine on you for a good moment. This is a time to use your third-eye chakra. Then look to see how you can help heal our dear Mother Earth, even in a small way.

#2 Labradorite with Wunjo.

#2- Labradorite with Wunjo. If you’re feeling in a rut, you need to look for wonderment again. Avoid intoxicants for a bit of time and listen to your mind, body, and spirit. There is a new detour on your path that will return pleasure and harmony to you. Use the passion and fire of Aries season to get it on!

Charoite and Jera.

#3 – Charoite and Jera have a message for you: Renew your commitment to getting that project done. It will be not only a gift to yourself but to all those around you. However, more joy will be yours if you’re humble about the accomplishment of it. You will succeed in your goal; just don’t let it go to your head.

Thanks again for accepting this casting. If you appreciate this weekly messages, let me know in the comments. Don’t forget I do full readings as found in my Magical Flea Market. You can find my offerings here: Book A Rune Casting With Runa. If you don’t have an Etsy account, you can always message me and we can book a reading privately.

Now go out and be the magic of this world by being your truest self and living your best life.

Blessed Be,

It’s that time of the week again, where you get a little Hump-Day pick me up with my weekly Pick-A-Rune. With the Moon in Taurus you may be feeling a bit wanting to be home-centered. I know that with the Covid Pandemic, that’s not a big guidance. But if you were thinking of going off on a new journey, maybe take a minute a make some more secure plans. So which of these rune pairs are calling to you?

This week we have #1. Bloodstone, the warrior stone; #2 Pyrite; also known as fool’s gold; and, #3 Citrine; that great healer.

Take a moment and breathe, and choose what aligns with your spirit right in this minute. Tell me below which you choose!

*************

What a reveal! These stones together with the runes are so powerful, but alone they are quite the source of energy, too. Now here’s the downlow:

#1 Bloodstone & Tiwaz (Merkstave*) – The Sky God wants you to sit down and just take stock. You’ve been in a constant conflict with yourself. You are overthinking and creating an energy block, especially where your creativity is concerned. If you continue in this pattern you may find yourself in a larger cycle of dwindling passions and even failure. Take some time to ground, center, and root and come back into the now. Future-tripping is helping no one, especially yourself. The order you desire comes with the practice of mindfulness.

#2 Pyrite & Ansuz – Your dreams are here to to provide you messages from your gods, ancestors, and/or the Universe. If you haven’t been doing dream work, this is a message to get back into it, start, or re-invigorate it. With this dream work you will find a new wisdom and mental agility you have been craving. If you do dream work on the regular it may be time to push yourself and begin the advanced work of visions quests and/or astral projection.

#3 Citrine & Berkano – The growth you have experienced lately felt like so much loss, but that transition has brought you new liberation, you just need to surrender and accept it — radically! That new venture you were fearful of trying? it’s time to dive in for it will bring you a new prosperity. Whenever you have Berkano come up in a reading, it’s also a message to do one small thing for the Earth right now. Plant a tree, pick up litter, or leave an offering of some sort.

Thanks again for accepting this casting. If you appreciate this weekly messages, let me know in the comments. Don’t forget I do full readings as found in my Magical Flea Market. You can find my offerings here: Book A Rune Casting With Runa. If you don’t have an Etsy account, you can always message me and we can book via that way.

Now go out and be the magic of this world by being your truest self and living your best life.

Blessed Be,

Weekly Pick-A-Rune Reveal (3/10/21)

Look at the photo. Which one calls to you? Is it 1) Tiger’s Eye; 2) Green Flourite; or 3) Sodalite? See the full Casting below.

Dear friends, readers, and fellow Witches:

As is often with how I operate, Spirit sent me lots of messages yesterday about how I’m conducting my readings and its benefit to others, as well as myself. In response to that Divine Download, from today onward you will find the Pick-A-Rune Reveal post here on Wednesdays. I will continue to post the Pick-A-Rune prompt on Instagram; but the Reveal will be here. It’s an extra step; but, it means the messages to those it should reach will be stronger.

Additionally, there will changes coming (think Aries season) to The Magical Flea Market and my website here, which will reflect the things I have learned since becoming a Mystical Business Owner, aka a Boss Witch. When I first started in this practice, I underestimated the amount of effort required to provide a quality experience. Clearly I’m still learning the lesson on Psychic Energy Use I blogged about not too long ago.

Because it is important to me to take the time and invest the energy to deliver a high-quality experience for my clients, especially for my dream interpretations and Rune castings, how I offer my services and goods will begin to change. Some things will only be found here at RunaTroy.com, whereas my magically curated items (Witch Bottles, Dream Recall Bags, e.g.) will remain offered over on Etsy via The Magical Flea Market. At some point, I hope to have everything in one place (TBD). But for now, this is my way of letting those who regularly use my services to know that I have received the messages from not only my clients, my fellow Witches, but also Source, that I have been devaluing my knowledge, skills, and abilities and that is not good for anyone. As a Crone, I should know better; but, there’s one thing true about practicing Witchcraft — you are always learning.

In the meantime, I hope that my movement to knowing my value and worth will rub off on all of you. I think that is a message we all need especially in these times of late-stage capitalism and late-stage pandemic.

Now to the weekly Pick-a-Rune Casting:

1. is Fehu Merkstave (reversed); 2. is Naudhiz; 3. is Raidho. For full reading on your pick see below.
  1. Here we find Fehu Merkstave (reversed) under the Tiger’s Eye stone. Freyja has a message for you that you are doing too much and are headed for burnout. Such a crisis will sow discord and impact your finances. So take some time TODAY and re-prioritize and re-value what is truly important. Remember without personal happiness there is no true wealth.
  2. Here we find Naudhiz under the Green Flourite. If you are taking unnecessary risks, this is not a good time for that. Yeah, yeah, you have to risk it to get the biscuit, but the biscuit for you right now means a big ol’ stone of distress, because those risks are harming those around you. Take a pause and check yourself before your wreck yourself. You’re missing a key something to make things right.
  3. Here we find Raidho under the Sodalite. Hitch up your wagon and know you are moving forward. Just don’t forget to focus in on the logistics to arrive safely to your goal. Don’t rely on others to achieve your objective right now. You must rely on your own chutzpah. The journey will lead you to bigger and better things; just don’t forget to trust yourself along the way.

Thanks again for visiting. I hope this weekly reading on the ramp up to the New Moon in Pisces resonates with you. If you are interested in a deeper Rune Casting reading, please consider booking one with me. Again, please note that the current prices will be changing in a couple of weeks, so booking now under the lower price might just be what the gods ordered for you. I have openings still for the New Moon time. If you have questions about how that looks, feel free to email me at Runa(at)CountryDwellers(dot)com

As I will it; So mote it be.

Blessed Be.
