Runic Astrology July 3 - July 9: 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.

Fehu (29th June – 14th July)

You may experience that there are tensions within you and around you in connection with the full moon, but outwardly you show a funny facade. Avoid getting caught in the crossfire if others try to provoke. Most likely, you will get nowhere in matters of importance to you until later in the week.

Uruz (14th July – 29th July)

Now you may experience unrest in close relationships, both professionally and privately. Especially in connection with Monday's full moon and the days surrounding it, you can feel an inner turmoil. Set aside time for meditation. Avoid being provoked. Make up your mind, but avoid getting into conflict.

Thurisaz (29th July – 13th August)

Listen to your dreams and this week's message from the Universe. Set aside time for a quiet moment for yourself. Use meditation to get in touch with your inner self. The full moon and the days around it will guide you in which direction to go in order to achieve them.

Ansuz (13th August – 29th August)

Now you may find that life is getting better for you in several areas. Where you have previously avoided exploring in depth emotions in favour of everyday duties, you will feel a change. The messages will come to you now if you take the time to listen. A fateful meeting can occur. Trust your gut feeling.

Raidho (29th August – 13th September)
