Rune of the Week March 14 - March 20 - Gar
There is no letter for Gar
There is stanza for Gar
Gar means spear. It is the last rune, and doesn’t belong to any of the aettirs. In a certain sense it completes the English runes, but it is also outside of them. As I have indicated before, spear is a euphemism for Yggdrasil, the World Tree of the Northern Tradition.
In a reading, Gar is a non answer. It indicates that you need to stand back, and let things happen and not to worry over the results. They will come on their own. It is also a tabula rasa, a blank slate that shows that anything can be done here, because it is not influenced by anything, and it’s influence is not necessarily something that will be felt. To have this show up as the energy working through for a week is kind of an interesting space. On one hand, it is the end and beginning and yet neither. It’s a week for taking new opportunities, or to bring other things to a clean end. How you use it is up to you, but the important thing is to act.
