Rune of the Week Feb 28 - March 6
Ehwaz is the vowel sound e (like get)
Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)
The horse is a joy to princes in the presence of warriors.
A steed in the pride of its hoofs,when rich men on horseback bandy words about it;and it is ever a source of comfort to the restless.
Ehwaz translates as the word horse. In it’s reversed form, it indicates that things are moving slowly. It can also show that what is needed is a slow movement, marked with methodical and thoughtful action, instead of haste and seemingly thoughtless action. Nothing is necessarily holding it back, but it just cannot proceed quickly.
