Today’s Rune is Sowulo (soh-VOO-low), converse.
Element: Fire (the Sun)
(Converse means the rune came into my hand face down.)
The spiritual principle Sowulo embodies is complete and utter wholeness – mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. The journey toward wholeness (and what “wholeness” means) is different for everyone. It’s a winding road with change and self-discovery at every turn.
Sowulo converse indicates the path to wholeness isn’t currently visible – it lies in the dark, waiting to be illuminated. Receiving this rune is a good opportunity to get honest with yourself about what wholeness means to you. Approach this with the knowledge that your quest for wholeness is yours alone – convincing yourself that you need a specific person or object(s) to be whole will bring you discontent at best, and absolute misery at worst. Beyond this allow yourself the freedom to answer honestly and without self-censorship, and don’t feel like your decisions are set in stone. What wholeness meant to you 10 years ago is probably different from what it means today, and will likely be different again 10 years from now.
Today, Sowulo converse reflects the anxiety I’m feeling about the uncertain direction of my career. I have a lot of unanswered questions. Should I stay or go? Where/how will I be most fulfilled? Which choice will bring me the most joy and prosperity?
Though it’s easier said than done, it really does come down to just deciding what I want. Getting clear about how I define wholeness will help.
