  • laguz : water
    DIVINATORY MEANINGS: emotions, fears, unconscious mind,
    things hidden, revelation, intuition, counseling
    MAGICAL USES: enhancing psychic abilities, confronting fears, stabilizing mental or emotional disorders, uncovering hidden things
    ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Njord, Midgard Serpent
    ANALYSIS: When most people think of water, they generally think of its more pleasant associations - peacefulness, love, compassion, intuition, and the emotions in general. However, we must remember that, to the Norse, water most often meant the sea, and the sea was a terrifying, unpredictable place, home of the Midgard serpent and the grave of many sailors. Laguz, then, should be thought of in terms of the lighter and the darker sides of the element of water. It speaks to our primal fears of the dark, the cold, and all those terrifying things hidden deep within our subconscious minds.
    Like eihwaz, which forced the journeyer to confront his or her mortality, laguz makes us examine the underlying roots of our and behavior, and allows us to modify those aspects which are hindering our spiritual development. The understanding and wisdom gained through eihwaz and the runes that followed have prepared the journeyer to face this darker side (represented by laguz) and accept it as an integral part of their selves. Laguz also prepares the person to take on the task of helping others through this self-examination process, allowing them to empathize more strongly and share their own experiences, making it (among other things) the rune of the spiritual counselor.

      sowulo : sun
      DIVINATORY MEANINGS: success, positive energy, increase,
      power, activity, fertility, health
      MAGICAL USES: energy, strength, success, healing, fertility
      ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Sunna

      ANALYSIS: The sun is held sacred by almost every religion in the world. Its light and warmth symbolize life and growth and all that is good. Norse cosmology describes the sun being driven around the heavens in a chariot and chased by a great wolf, which will devour at Ragnarok. Throughout Indo-European Paganism, the sun has frequently been associated with the horse, often described as being carted around the sky by a horse. Both are symbolic of life and fertility, and are usually considered 'masculine' in polarity, although in Norse myth the chariot is driven by a girl. The swastika or sun wheel is a constant motif in rock carvings dating Neolithic times, and occurs throughout Europe and Asia. The sun rune itself is a variation on this symbol, and represents motion and energy.

      Sowulo marks the end of the second aett, and like wunjo represents success and glory. However, unlike the rest and relaxation of Valhalla, the sun is very much an active symbol. We have reached the end of the aett successfully, and the conclusion is a positive one, but in this case we are fully aware of the changing and transient nature of the universe. We can see the wolf at heels, and we know that we must move on. Here, though, the journeyer may pause briefly in the warmth and light of the sun, absorbing and applying its energy to the work ahead. This time we won't need to be blasted out of our safe position, but will rather choose to leave it in order to continue on the journey..

          RUNE OF THE DAY

          Thurisaz, literally "Giant", signifies destruction and defense. A conflict simmers which brings change.
          Force is directed, and force must react. After conflict and destruction comes new growth. Sexual tension.

          Will try to use the bigger more in depth meanings listed years ago on here from now on if anyone wish's me to?

            RAIDHO-A Journey

            Raidho symbolizes the chariot, or a journey which is physical or spiritual. Perspective is gained from
            a new vantage point. A time to make a change, or a journey which leads to spiritual transformation. Good advice.
