Today’s Rune is Raido, reversed (RYE-doe).
Astrological affinities: The sign of Sagittarius
Several years ago while meditating on the meaning of this rune, I had a short but potent vision that to me captures this rune’s essence. I saw a little boy in a house, standing at a window. He really wanted to go outside and play, but he was afraid to because he didn’t know what he’d find when he did. He would look outside the window with worry on his face, and then disappear from view – hiding crouched on the floor below the sill. He did this several times as the conflict between fear of the unknown and desire for adventure raged within him.
Today it seems I’m that little boy. I’m in a period of major transition on many different levels, and it seems I’m being cautioned not to let fear about “what’s next” keep me from moving forward.
