Runes

Divination with Runes on the New Normal Wednesday

Posted on Updated on

Please join Tchipakkan with her guests Jane Sibley and Thor Halvorsen on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, November 1, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt.

Miss the live show? Here’s the link to the archived show.

This is going to be a chat about using Runes for Divination. Runes were used for writing, and for magick, but since Ralph Blum came out with his little rune divination kit, many people seem to think that this is what Runes are for. Well, they sure work, so let’s talk about it. Jane Sibley is an expert on Norse folklore and Runes, and Thor is a Rune reader and student of pagan sociology (as is Tchipakkan). This should be a fun conversation. Feel free to call in at 619-639-4606 with questions or comments.

 

Listen to the show on http://liveparanormal.com/ , live Wednesday 8-9 eastern time. If you miss the live show, we’ll share the link to the archive as soon as it’s done on fb, and the CTCW.net site, as well as https://Tchipakkan.wordpress.com Hope you can join us!

Panel Preview Occult Jigsaw Puzzle

Posted on Updated on

Occult Jigsaw Puzzle Panel, Forcing Correspondences:

You can find books with lists and charts of correspondences to use in your magickal work: which tarot card represents the same energy as which rune or Sephirot, or chakra or astrological sign. This drives some of us crazy. There are many real correspondences out there- the Sun and the metal gold and fire, masculine energy, these are the correspondences on which alchemy is based. But when people see that there’s a sun and a moon in the tarot and then try to make the various runes match up to tarot cards or astrological signs, the systems break down and chaos reigns. Come and share in this discussion where panelists will try to figure out which correspondences work and which are forced. Often the problems with such meshing are due to the fact that these systems can be meshed without an understanding or care for the culture of which they originated. This is a form of misappropriation, because these systems are inseparable from the context of culture and language. And sometimes- they just don’t work.

We’ll be talking about bindrunes
It’s another podcast coming up for your education and entertainment!
Wednesday night Starwolf will be talking with Tchipakkan on http://liveparanormal.com/ from 8-9 pm.
The topic of the evening is Bindrunes and Rune Magick. We’re told that the runes were given to the Norse folks by Odin. They’re a symbol system, an alphabet, a method of divination and a method of working with energy, and Starwolf and Tch

ipakkan will be talking about the more metaphysical uses of the Runes.
What is a bindrune? It’s when combine two or more runes often using the same long central line. The magickal properties of both/ all runes are still there. Why and how would you do this? Listen to learn more.

Speaker Spotlight: Jane Sibley

Posted on Updated on

Jane T. Sibley, one of the founders of CTCW, also created the New England Conference on Mithraic Studies (Mithracon), happening in New Haven this weekend. Jane and Tchipakkan met in the Society for Creative Anachronism, a medieval recreation group, where Jane’s persona is that of a Norsewoman from the pre-Viking period, Arwen ferch Rhys (Tchipakkan’s is an Anglo-Saxon, also from the 7th century). That was where Jane created Auntie Arwen’s Spices, where she sells herbs and herb mixes both culinary and healing. If you can’t wait until the conference check them out on line. In the SCA she worked with Lois Fitzpatrick in the Soothsayer’s Guild, being awarded the Order of the Laurel for historical divination. Among the techniques she shared in this medievalist group were reading runes, casting seeds, and her work in utsetta (oracular seidhr).

She was taught a lot of this by her Norwegian grandmother, and, being an historian, is hesitant to claim that these techniques go back farther than can be documented, these are traditional techniques. Jane passes them along outside the family because they shouldn’t be lost, and none of the next generation has shown interest. Among these is the very intense Norseworking healing ritual, which she’s done for a few years. (If you come, be sure you know how to ground your energy!)

Jane’s degree was in folklore (her PhD in runes), and her work was with an electron microscope- as with much of CTCW, she combines mind and spirit, history and science, healing, divination, myth and humor, each informing our understanding of the others.

Her books, “Norse Mythology…According to Uncle Einar”, “The Hammer of the Smith”, “The Divine Thunderbolt: Missile of the Gods”,  and “A Different Dragon” and The Way of the Wise (Traditional Norse Folk Medicine and Magic.)

See her page here for a list of the classes she’s taught over the years.
