Rune For the Good of the Earth
Who among us doesn't believe the earth can use all the help it can get? On a micro and macro level, our world needs action and protection. This rune is from The Veritable Key of Solomon, a 15th Century grimoire, and is an invocation for the good of the earth, against hail and storms.
This is to be used on Saturday under Saturn, and The Key of Solomon says that the colors appropriate to Saturn are "black or shadowy earth, leaden, brown, and the others which are sad and have no lustre." Appropriate, given the state of nature these days, and thus I chose an earthy green for the runic symbols.
A perfect addition to any home altar.
I haven't been able to successfully translate the Latin, so if anyone with expertise wants to chime in, I'm all ears!
