Auðumla, Nifelheim
In modern symbology, fire is generally masculine and ice (or earth) is feminine, but it is unknown whether the Norse shared this association. Certainly, ice was a constant factor in their day to day lives. It threatened their crops and their ships almost throughout the year, but it also served as a symbol of creation, from which all life will eventually spring. It says something about the Norse mind that they could recognize the need to have such a seemingly destructive joining of elements in order to create and maintain life. Fire may be warm and pleasant, but it must be balanced by the freezing of winter just as birth must be balanced by death. Even the little death of sleep has been proven to be vital for our mental and physical well-being.
Isa encompasses all of these ideas, but primarily represents a period of rest before activity, and itself forms the material from which life can be created. It is matter, inert by itself, but transformed into the stuff of stars when wedded with energy. It is the immovable form acted upon the irresistible force. In many ways, the Norse predicted Einstein with their version of the creation of the universe, recognizing that everything in their world contained both fire and ice (energy and matter), and that the relationship between the two defined the processes of life itself.

  1. I am a Rune reader and I can tell you from experience what I tell you might not be what another reader would tell you. But I have been told I hit the nail on the head. My interruption of this Rune indicates that you are definitely in a rut and you feel like your life is at a stand still. You need to take a break from your life right now. Take a few days off of work if you can. Clear your head. Do some meditating. Ask the Divine to come to you. Then explain that you are searching for a new Path to take in your life. Listen and She will provide you with the answers you seek.If you feel that Rune hits home with you, you are definitely on the wrong Path. Ask the Divine for a new course, to give your life meaning and purpose.

    I hope I have helped you out. If you need anything else, just let me know. Oh, did you see I had redone the Ancient Symbol Cards for the day using you as my influence. Here’s the link:
