Today’s Rune is Berkana (buhr-KAH-nah).
Astrological Affinity: The Sign of Virgo
Today Berkana puts me on notice that my environment supports the growth of ideas which lead toward a desired goal or outcome. These ideas/concepts will not produce results immediately – they are seeds which must be nurtured to ensure a future “harvest.”
Looking back over the day, I see the energy of Berkana was present in many ways:
While visiting my family in beautiful rural northeastern Washington, several ideas came to me about businesses I could start that would do well here. My partner and I have talked for a couple years about moving here, but our chief concern has always been how to make a living. I’ve been tossing around one idea in particular, and had a flash of inspiration about how to overcome some logistical concerns. The “seed of growth” here is one a future endeavor that will enable me to live where I’d like to without worries of income.
I grew mentally by taking responsibility for a personality conflict at work that resulted in a missed opportunity, for me as well as for the client I was working with. The “seed of growth” here is learning greater patience and finesse in my professional dealings.
I grew personally by becoming reacquainted with cousins from Nevada during a family reunion. The “seed of growth” here is one of happy reconnection with seldom-seen relatives.
Looking over this, one can see that Berkana’s energy has affinity with domestic affairs relating to work and family.
