April 1, 2010 – Inguz


Inguz is the suffix –ing

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

Ing was first seen by men among the East-Danes,
till, followed by his chariot,he departed eastwards over the waves.So the Heardingas named the hero.

Inguz is the rune of gestation and catalysts. It is the seed held within the earth, waiting for the right conditions to burst forth in growth and being. Inguz (or Ing) is one of the names of Frey, the Vanic God of Fertility and Virility, the twin brother to Freya, the Goddess of Love and Fertility. His name actually translates as “Lord” (while her name means “Lady”).
The role of this week for Inguz I felt was to be one of gestation, holding the forces until the reach the right time to burst forth. So it holds for today. The forces are holding there, not in active, but not being expressed forth, locked in a slowly shifting dance until the right balance is achieved. Balance between what? Between inner power and outer expression. The inner power that is still, silent and constant, but it works best when it is expressed forth at the right time. For now, the two are strongly connected, but the outer expression needs to be encouraged, until the right time to rush forth in a illuminating blaze comes.
