Os

Os is the vowel sound “oh”

The mouth is the source of all language,
a pillar of wisdom and a comfort to wise men,a blessing and a joy to every knight

Os, the rune of the Mouth, is a sign for communication, speech and language. I always consider this to the rune of Odhinn, as the Galdrfadr (the father of spells) and his powers and abilities within that sphere, but also as the power of communication in general. You might find that people are calling you, but now is a good time to also reach out to others. Of course, if you are getting text message, phone calls, emails and messages from others all at once, it might be a little overwhelming. Try to handle them one at time.

Os is the rune for today, signifying a day of communication, speech, song, language, and expression. What you hear and say is going to have impact today, so be open and listen as much as you talk. You might find yourself being wittier or more eloquent, able to get your meaning across easier, but you could just as well find yourself bombarded with messages, phone calls, emails and other forms of communication media

It seems today is going to be filled with communication, or perhaps great use of communications technology. It also seemed to be a communication of the Gods and wights/spirits to me, as there was a moment this morning during my meditation that a message was a given. Unfortunately I am not quite sure what the message means, but it was one of those moments, when the stillness and silence just suddenly seems loud and not so still.

Os signifies communication in all of it’s myriad forms. Today, one of the forms that struck me was as the communication of Gods to humanity. One of the associations that Raven Kaldera gives Os is the God’s Mouth. I tend to think of it as the language of the Gods, which isn’t words or even sounds so much as impressions, flashes of intuition and as strong sense of what actions to take or not take. This language becomes even more intense when you seek the audience of the Gods, and commune with them intentionally. It is the same for the tongue of spirits, or angels, or any other kind of incorporeal intelligence.

It is also a reflection of Mercury having turned direct yesterday, and so now communication has become easier again, without the tribulations of the past three weeks.

Os can also be a call to use your voice, but also to remember your voice. Speak up, Stand up, and don’t allow yourself to be ignored or overlooked if you have something to say, whether it be with your mouth or your actions.

Os is also the rune that embodies the notion of Words (or Songs) of Power. To a certain degree, all words have power, just in the sense that they are used to communicate. But some words are more powerful then others. Sometimes they are special words used in magic, but there are contemporary Words of Power as well. Racial slurs, curse words, Company names, jingles heard through media, are all contemporary Words of Power. An excellent editorial about a rather notorious word is at Kenaz Filan’s blog

Titled “The Notorious N Word” it was a piece originally published in PanGaia, and a really great and interesting piece.

We have returned to Os and this time, it has been righted. Communication flows, people make wax eloquent, and you may find that more people are listening to your words then normal. You may also find other vocal activities are easier, and even being able to talk your way out of a difficult situation.
