Womanrunes: The Two Circles

Womanrunes: The Two Circles. Rune of Merging. Joining or Dividing. June 2013 041

We come together with others in a dance of being so intricate as to be unfathomable. We enter their spheres, they enter ours. Linked, connected, drawing apart. Remaining cells linked forever in the overall body of humanity. Meiosis and mitosis. Separation and connection—always balancing these twin forces. Recognizing when sinking in to another is a thing of holy beauty and recognizing when pulling away is the same. Holding hands, linking arms, forming interlocking circles of strength. A chain stretching across time and space, carried lightly on wings of eternity, and nestled, curled and connected in the womb of an ancient mother.

Interdependence cannot be denied. It is essential to survival and strength.

The same day I drew this stone, I also drew a card from my Goddess Oracle deck. I drew Diana (my daughter’s middle namesake) and I loved her message:

It is time to hunt for what brings you strength.

I definitely feel myself in a place of change and transition. Our family’s roles and structure are evolving and shifting with my husband quitting his job. The urge towards the shift of focus that began for me in 2009 is reaching greater clarity and urgency and I feel ready to make some more dramatic changes…

Update: this project evolved into a real book!

The first post in my Womanrunes series is available here. The runes and the names of them come from Shekhinah Mountainwater’s Womanrunes system for which there are no written interpretations available other than the name and one word meanings. I’m engaging in a semi-daily practice of drawing one and then going down to the woods with it to see what it “tells” me–basically, creating what I wish I had, which is a more developed interpretation of the meaning of each womanrunestone.
