The Waters of Wyrd, the depths of the unconscious, the flow of magic, the dreamworld where creatures of magic and myth roam free. Don’t underestimate the power of Laguz, the rune of water. The mysteries of water have long held sway over man’s imagination. Human life is formed in water and, to our northern ancestors, the deep waters were doorways to the world of the dead. As the rune of water Laguz might be said to contain the power of Wyrd itself; the flowing waters of creation, consciousness, memory and magic. For some commentators, the Laguz rune also represents the Frigga’s magic spindle upon which the threads of Wyrd are spun; in this sense Laguz represents not just the flow of Wyrd, but also the power to shape and form our own destinies.
