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

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)

Initiatives you have previously taken or are taking this week could bring you something that is sought after by many. The universe is giving you a helping hand and it looks like you're holding the best cards right now. Use your willpower and action wisely. Raise your eyes to the future.

Uruz (14th July – 29th July)

This week is designed for you to take initiative on what you want to improve in your everyday life. Whether it is your daily routines that need to be adjusted, or perhaps some of your work tasks that you would like to change. Be creative when entering negotiations, and try to avoid stepping on others' toes. Be consistent.

Thurisaz (29th July – 13th August)

Flirting, falling in love and social connections in general take on a life of their own this week. Positive developments can be expected in several areas of your life, including your private relationships and those at work. The universe is sending you what you ask for, whether you whisper or shout. Follow your intuition.

Ansuz (13th August – 29th August)

An ambition or wishful dream you’ve held for a long time could become a reality this week if you play your cards right. Find your power. It is hidden inside of you, and will come to you if you only look within. There is nothing too big or too small when it comes to thoughts. Realisation lies in the balance between dreams and facts.

Raidho (29th August – 13th September)

This week you will enjoy a special occasion or event, most likely in relation to family. For some, this could also mean close friends, or the foundational relationships that make up your chosen family. Harmony will prevail. Changes you've been longing for could finally fall into place. Seize the opportunity when it comes.

Kenaz (13th September – 28th September)

You can expect a harmonious week, one where you will build on what you created last week. Something you thought about or set in motion then will have an effect on your life for a long time to come. If you didn't manage to start last week, it's not too late to begin now. Follow your inner star and consider the options.

Gebo (28th September – 13th October)

If you assert your opinions and use your creativity at the beginning of the week, it could lead to some positive outcomes for you. But try to avoid stepping on others' toes in your zeal. It will help you to attract future advocates for your cause. Disagreements you have are easily resolved with consideration and justice.

Wunjo (13th October – 28th October)

You will gain traction for your opinions, but this requires that you don't allow yourself to become annoyed by the lack of room you have to play with. With tact and the right tone you’ll get others to understand what you want more easily. Engage others as if they are key for you to succeed.

Hagalaz (28th October – 13th November)

Something that has been simmering under the surface, either in your subconscious or your surroundings will suddenly come to light this week. Already at the beginning of the week you get an insight into what may be involved. Open your eyes. You will receive an input that will tip the scales, and you will know what to do. Trust your own abilities and resources.

Nauthiz (13th November – 28th November)

Who you are and how others perceive you is important to you, now so more than ever. Your values; ethical, moral and financial, are assessed in your inner self. The initiative you take now will be rewarded, the only thing that can stop you is someone with greater influence than you limiting your initiative. Plan the details.

Isa (28th November – 13th December)

December is off to a great start for you. It's your month, and you'll feel it already from the beginning of this week. Now you can assert yourself with energy and confidence. Cooperation is favoured in all areas, both privately and at work. Openings that you could only imagine will come to you now.

Jera (13th December – 28th December)

December is off to a great start for you. It's your month, and you'll feel it already from the beginning of this week. Now you can assert yourself with energy and confidence. Cooperation is favoured in all areas, both privately and at work. Openings that you could only imagine will come to you now.

Eihwaz (28th December – 13th January)

Be open to the unknown. Your subconscious is pushing, whether it's in the form of clear intuitive flashes of consciousness or night dreams. Stop and consider them. You are in a time when you have to clear up questions you have been asking yourself. Consider the durability of your dreams.

Perthro (13th January – 28th January)

That which you dream of or wish to create for yourself you can now feel safe to work on in secret. It will take some time for your thoughts and ideas to mature before you can come out with them. In the meantime, the best way forward is to hone the details. Be confident in yourself and your choices. It's your life that matters.

Algiz (28th January – 13th February)

If you have long thought about reorganising your life in one area or another, you may have gotten a clearer vision about how to go about it last week. Now is the time to implement and work on this. Adjust your course in line with what your new goals are. Every action begins with a single thought. Trust yours.

Sowilo (13th February – 27th February)

The changes you wish to make, the ones that came like an intuitive flash last week, may come to you again this week. Whether it concerns work, friendship, housing or your free time, this week you can start planning where the road will take you next. You may even be inspired to begin a new activity as a result.

Teiwaz (27th February – 14th March)

You could be challenged in your opinions and thoughts this week, both at work and in your private life. Stand up for what you believe, and don't waver on any decisions if someone tries to criticise you. It is up to you whether you should stick to something you feel could be a success based on your own interpretation, or whether you should trust the views of others.

Berkano (14th March – 30th March)

Luck will accompany you in the contracts and agreements you enter into now, especially at the beginning of the week. New acquaintances you make may be beneficial for the future, and there may even be some flirtatious and romantic undertones here. Find the balance. Those in a committed relationship should set aside some time together, this will be in your favour and strengthen the bonds between you.

Ehwaz (30th March – 14th April)

You may easily be inspired by the attitudes and opinions of others just now, something which could be positive. It is in meeting new people that the motivation to change an existing situation comes. What you say yes to now could become the basis for greater success in the future. Find your starting point.

Mannaz (14th April – 29th April)

If you’ve had the feeling of being stuck in the same pattern, the next few days and even coming weeks are a perfect time to deal with your outdated life attitudes. Your philosophy of life and values are changing. Find the challenging points, the painful spots that pinch you. It's time for trying new ways of thinking and doing things.

Laguz (29th April – 14th May)

This week you might be faced with an ultimatum. It could be about a final decision that you must make in order for you to move on, or in order for your life to move in a direction that is better for you. It may be related to something you've been thinking about for a while. Have confidence.

Ingwaz (14th May – 29th May)

The distribution of your financial resources will occupy your thoughts for much of the week. Your values versus others' values is a moral dilemma you could be faced with. A detailed and accurate agreement will be able to resolve the situation. Think ahead, accept the rules of the game and follow them. It will benefit you in the long run.

Othala (29th May – 14th June)

Good thoughts and feelings are plentiful in your close relationships now, both in your private life and at work. Something will develop in your favour this week too, perhaps as a continuation of last week. If you are single and meet someone now, it could feel as if fate has its hand in the game. Take time to feel your feelings. Think carefully before you act.

Dagaz (14th June – 29th June)

If you are considering investing in your own talents or creative abilities, this is the right time. Information you collect, or steps you take now, will set off the process in the right direction for you. Be open to the unknown. A meeting could turn into a friendship, and perhaps something more. Take the time to be curious about other people.
