|Our rune today is Eihwaz of Heimdall’s Aett pronounced “eye-wawz” (EI: Yew tree) Strength, reliability, dependability, trustworthiness. Enlightenment, endurance. Defense, protection. The driving force to acquire, providing motivation and a sense of purpose. Indicates that you have set your sights on a reasonable target and can achieve your goals. An honest person who can be relied upon.
Seeds lie under snow. They are waiting for spring. Be patient. Wait for a proper time to take action. Your present situation may be the result of earlier hasty actions or decisions but you should not hurry now. Shoots appearing at the wrong time are destroyed by frost, so patience and perseverance are essential. When the time is right, things will change naturally, in the same way that spring follows winter. Delay is no reason to worry. It can be necessary and useful. In terms of your career, if something is threatening you, the best response is to defend your position. Do not attack! Hostile factors will either disappear, or they will ultimately turn to your advantage.
Eihwaz Reversed or Merkstave: Confusion, destruction, dissatisfaction, weakness. (Note: the reversed or merkstave definitions are included only for reference as they apply to a multi-rune cast and not to a single rune that’s drawn blind from the pouch)
As with all, take only what feels right to you and disregard the rest.
