The rune for today is Kenaz or Ken (torch), the rune of fire and illumination, of knowledge and cunning, of inspiration and creativity. Kenaz is about the physical fire like for instance the hearth, as well as about the spiritual fire we see displayed in the suit of wands.
The Queen of Pentacles from the Original Rider Waite Tarot has come to share with us her wisdom about the wonders of her earthly realm.
Kenaz and Queen together remind me of the cunning woman in the forest. She has no need for book knowledge because she reads nature as her ”book of life” and she distills not only potions and ointments from the herbs she finds but also deep embedded truths from the lessons learned by observing the turning of the wheel and all its wonders.I could dream and fantasize about such a life for hours and hours but that won’t bring me much fiery energy in today’s life. So for now I am going to finish my coffee and then I will take my bike out for a spin to enjoy the sun on a early Spring day.
