Bindrune to Create a Glamour

Filed Under Bindrune | Comments Off on Bindrune to Create a Glamour

If you are new to working with bindrunes, I suggest you read the introductory bindrune post here, then return to this post to read about this specific bindrune.

Life can present us with occasions for which we feel inadequate, or perhaps we just need a boost to help us present our best aspect. To go with last week’s bindrune for confidence, this week’s rune helps to create a glamour to help us appear as we wish to be seen. “Act as if” can be a helpful technique–for example, act as if you are calm and confident, and the casting director at the audition (or potential date at the cafe, or hiring manager at the job interview) is more likely to see you that way.

Now, you could use this bindrune to cast a glamour in a negative way–for example, to convince someone to trust you when you are actually using them for our own purposes–but I wouldn’t recommend that. It’s between you, your conscience, and your Gods, of course. But, my advice is–don’t.

Bind Rune for a Glamour - Ior, Dagaz, Laguz

Bind Rune for a Glamour – Ior, Dagaz, Laguz

Ior (green): The rune of Jormundgand draws in the Great Serpent’s boundary magic. We clearly define our boundaries, and thus ourselves, as we wish to be seen. This rune also calls upon Jormundgand’s fluid identity as perceived by others. While the Great Serpent is a unique being without gender, many who work with Jormundgand see him/her/hir as their own gender, and thus Jormundgand becomes the screen for our projections the way we wish to become the screen for the other person’s positive projections.

Dagaz (orange): This rune brings in the light of day, the brightness needed to dazzle our audience. Dagaz also functions as an energy filter, allowing out only what we wish to put forward for others to see. The converse of that, of course, is that it also filters what comes through to us, so the caution is to dazzle with, but not to be dazzled by, your own glamour.

Laguz (blue): With its flowing energy, Laguz can be quite useful in deflecting attention away from what we do not want others to see. We want to appear confident, so we don’t want them to see our nervousness. That’s good. We want to appear trustworthy, so we don’t want them to see our treachery. That’s not good. Just don’t do it. This rune has a a great deal of power to shape others’ perceptions of us–use it wisely.

The bindrune on the left was done in colored pencil. The one on the right was done with calligraphic marker. They are the same bind rune, shown in two different media to give an idea of how the same bindrune looks different depending on how it is created.

You could also put a drop of rose oil on the bindrune, as the scent creates a sense of well-being, which boosts our energy and inspires others to open up to us.

Wishing you a glamourous week!
