Interpreting the Runes ~ Ansuz ~ Signals ~ Messenger Rune Gift
The keynote here is receiving: messages, signals, gifts. Even a most timely warning may be seen as a gift. The message may be that of a new life unfolding. New lives begin with new connections, surprising linkages that direct you to new pathways. Take care now to be especially aware during meetings, visits, chance encounters, particularly with persons wiser than yourself. When the Messenger Rune brings sacred knowledge, you are truly blessed.
Loki is that ancient trickster from the pantheon of the Norse Gods. He is theheyeohkah of the Native Americans, a mocking shadow of the creator god, as well as the bringer of benefits to humankind. He is a reminder that even scoundrels and arch-thieves can be the bearers of wisdom. When this Rune is drawn, expect the unexpected; the message is always a call, a call to a new life.
Ansuz is the first of the thirteen Runes that make up the Cycle of Initiation -Runes that focus directly upon the mechanism of self-change – and as such, addresses our need to integrate unconscious motive with conscious intent.
Drawing Ansuz indicates that a connection with the Divine is at hand. It is a signal to explore the depths, the foundations of life, and to experience the inexhaustible wellspring of the Divine in one’s own nature.
At the same time, Ansuz reminds that one must first draw from the well to nourish and give to oneself. Then, there will be more than enough to nourish others. A new sense of family solidarity invests this Rune.
Ansuz also presents a different message when drawn in a reversed position: One may be concerned over what appears to be failed communication, lack of clarity or awareness either in one’s past history or in a present situation. One may feel inhibited from accepting what is offered. A sense of futility, of wasted motion, may overwhelm one’s self. However, that is what is happening and is timely to one’s own process. If the well is clogged, this is the moment for cleaning out the old. Reversed, Ansuz is saying, “Consider the uses of adversity.”
