Runic Astrology December 4th - 10th: What do the runes have in store for you this week?

By Randi Bjærum

Runic astrologer Randi Bjærum uses the ancient Viking practice to forecast your love, money, career, style and health every week

Divination in runes is an ancient art that can be traced back to the Norse God Odin. Old scriptures show that the Vikings then continued this tradition - they even used used rune symbols in jewellery, clothing and weapons to boost their energy.


When we're born, we all get our own rune stone (find yours here). This birth rune indicates the abilities, talents and resources that you bring into your life.

But as the universe is constantly changing, daily, weekly or monthly runic astrology can tell you how events, actions and things affect your life. It can also reveal what energies, events and changes are occurring, and how you can best act on them. A runic horoscope is a guide to your spiritual journey and a guide on how to live life to the fullest.

Raidho (29th August – 13th September)

Continue to persevere in the next few days just as you have throughout the autumn. You are soon to face the rewards, both professionally and personally. Social engagements are increasing, and a busy schedule may bring some unrest into close relationships. Plan together so that both parties are accommodated. If you are single, mid-week activities could lead to exciting encounters with sparks flying.

Kenaz (13th September – 28th September)

The need for changes, either professionally or personally, may manifest as internal pressure or actual events from the outside. Address it immediately – both what you feel is right and the path forward for you. Either take concrete action in the first half of the week or wait until the beginning of the new year, as indicated by the universe. Follow your intuition.

Gebo (28th September – 13th October)

Now is an opportune time to tackle the tasks on your to-do list in the first half of the week. Get things done swiftly because in the second half of the week, unexpected events may occur, and it could get busy for you. Social engagements are increasing, and you're in for pleasant days filled with company and warmth.

Wunjo (13th October – 28th October)

The pre-Christmas time is a magical period for you, where you have the opportunity to make up for lost social time. You approach others with openness and joy, making them feel comfortable. One of your magical abilities. At the same time, you receive manifold in return now. A acquaintance may quickly develop into something more if you desire. Enjoy it!

Hagalaz (28th October – 13th November)

Take care of your financial priorities early in the week because there is a shift in the universe that you may already feel in the second half of the week, depending on how highly sensitive you are. You have a strong intuition, and this week, you will need to rely on it. Your values are crucial, both financially and ethically, and starting next week, you may want to prioritise differently.

Nauthiz (13th November – 28th November)

Something you've longed for can become a reality this week. Be open to the possibility that others can change, both emotionally and in behaviour. Forgiving may be challenging for you, but this week, consider giving someone a 'trial period.' Assess the situation until mid-January before forming a final opinion, especially in matters of love. Remember that to forgive and let go, you must also forgive yourself.

Isa (28th November – 13th December)

Now is the time for you to shine in the pre-Christmas season. This week is one of the best in this year to elevate your image, appearance, and essence to a new and higher level. Whether it's clothing, hair, or the role you play in relation to others, in the coming days, you will see the returns on the investment you make in yourself. Actualise yourself.

Jera (13th December – 28th December)

Something you've been contemplating for a while, you now have the willpower and energy to accomplish. It might take doing the same thing twice before you're satisfied, but it could be necessary to reach your goal. Pre-Christmas activities are increasing, bringing more social interactions. Enjoy the season and the days ahead.

Eihwaz (28th December – 13th January)

The need to withdraw for meditation and rest may conflict with the demands of daily life. Get as much done as possible early in the week because the closer you get to the weekend, the greater the social activity. You are popular, and invitations are pouring in. Structure and plan your days. Try to carve out some time for yourself every day.

Perthro (13th January – 28th January)

Avoid burning the candle at both ends this week in your eagerness to gain control and get things done. The need to withdraw a bit to plan your next moves in the time ahead may disrupt your rhythm. Find a balance between these two extremes. Something you've been waiting for confirmation on may come early in the week.

Algiz (28th January – 13th February)

The magical pre-Christmas time, where everyone is eager to get things done before the holiday season, may already be noticeable this week. The level of activity and workload is increasing. Get as much done as possible at the beginning of the week, even though there may be significant social activity as well. With a bit of creativity and reliable collaborators, you can manage your tasks. Be patient.

Sowilo (13th February – 27th February)

Continue, and you can experience joy during the magical pre-Christmas season, but the duties of everyday life can steal the spirit from anyone. In connection with a project, the associated organization or group may have higher demands than what you can accommodate with your current agenda. Set boundaries and provide concrete feedback. Use facts.

Teiwaz (27th February – 14th March)

You have more energy and enthusiasm than normal and are keen to get things done, but your surroundings may not always share the same perception. Arm yourself with patience if things don't progress at your pace. Instead of getting frustrated, take the time to enjoy the magical message of the pre-Christmas season. Actively use your time to bring joy to someone who may not have the same opportunities as you. Offer yourself.

Berkano (14th March – 30th March)

The need to showcase your professional capabilities is above average this week. Take the time to prioritize your needs to get things done before everything else. If you have a family, communicate with them about the situation. Catch up on what's been neglected over the weekend, even though social activities may be tempting. Find a balance between giving and taking in the coming days.

Ehwaz (30th March – 14th April)

In this magical advent season, you may encounter new cultures and foreign lands with much greater respect and understanding than usual. This could be because your higher consciousness is more open during this time of year. Romance and inspiration for new activities may arise in connection with foreign places. Enjoy it!

Mannaz (14th April – 29th April)

Now, impressions from other horizons can inspire you if you let your thoughts wander freely. Whether it's foreign cultures or the idea of higher education that makes you reflect on your life values and philosophy, or meeting someone different from yourself, let it sink in. Let it mature before you act on it, especially if you are traveling abroad.

Laguz (29th April – 14th May)

Now you're in a period where you receive increased attention from others. Enjoy the moments and the joy of being seen. Romance is on the rise, but also an awareness of the balance between the two of you. If you've been giving too much of yourself, it may be time to shift, or conversely, if you should step up your offer. Find a sustainable balance and fair distribution.

Ingwaz (14th May – 29th May)

Exciting developments may arise at the beginning of the week. If you've been in a committed relationship for a while, it could be the time for a proposal, deciding to move in together, or if you're single, meeting someone with the potential for a long-term commitment. The financial agreements you commit to now may be wise to have documented by a professional.

Othala (29th May – 14th June)

Love and romance are intensifying this week. In the coming weeks, you'll likely experience others approaching you in an open and trusting manner. If you wish to establish a relationship, you have the best opportunities in the next few weeks. Be conscious of what you want from a partnership.

Dagaz (14th June – 29th June)

Now you enter a period where your values and desires in close relationships are more important than usual. You experience increased interest from others, both friends, colleagues, and in romantic initiatives. Personal qualities become more important to you. External appearances are one thing, but in the end, only the two of you remain. The question you must ask yourself is if you have something in common.

Fehu (29th June – 14th July)

Now is the time to trust yourself and your intuition more. If your gut feeling tells you that something is off, it probably is. However, carefully check the facts before drawing conclusions. Your daily routines may be holding you back in your everyday life, preventing you from doing what you truly desire. Find the balance. Free up some personal time for yourself.

Uruz (14th July – 29th July)

You are entering into a positive phase and something you have been working on for a long time may now start to show progress. A significant turning point occurs this week where you may feel that the heaviest burdens you've carried in the past few months or years are over. You are heading into a new phase. Rejoice. A flirtation may arise over the weekend if you are open to it.

Thurisaz (29th July – 13th August)

Take the feeling that something is missing in your life seriously. It may be related to not being able to express enough of your creative side, whether it's at work, in close relationships, or in your free time. A meeting may inspire you to take concrete actions, and it may feel fateful. Romance or a flirtation can arise in this context.

Ansuz (13th August – 29th August)

Now is the time to balance your own creativity and leisure against the demands from others, whether they be friends, groups, organizations, or networks you belong to. Be honest with yourself. Go for what feels right and brings you joy, even if it's tempting to choose what is strategic. Let your own values count the most.
