This is the Rune of opening, renewed clarity, dispelling the darkness
that has been shrouding some part of your life. You are free to receive,
and to know the joy of non-attached giving.
Kano is the Rune for the morning of activities, for seriousness, clear
intent and concentration, all of which are essential at the beginning of
work. The protection offered by Kano is this: The more Light you have,
the better you can see what is trivial and outmoded in your conditioning.
In relationships, there can now be a mutual opening up. You may serve
as the trigger, the timekeeper, through your awareness that the Light of
understanding is once again available to you both.
Recognize that while on the one hand you are limited and dependent,
on the other you exist at the perfect center where the harmonious and beneficent
forces of the universe merge and radiate. You are that center.
Simply put, if you have been operating in the dark, there is now enough
light to see that the patient on the operating is yourself.
Reversed: Expect a darkening of the light in some situation or relationship.
A friendship may be dying, a partnership, a marriage, some aspect of yourself
that is no longer appropriate to the person you are now. Receiving this
Rune puts you on notice that failure to face up to the death consciously
would constitute a loss; of opportunity. Kano is one of the Cycle Runes.
Reversed, it points to the death of a way of life invalidated by growth.
Reversed, this Rune calls for giving up gladly the old, and being prepared
to live for a time empty: it calls for developing inner stability - not
being seduced by the momentum of old ways while waiting for the new to
become illuminated in its proper time.
