Welcome back to another segment of the journey through the runes! We are more than halfway through the Elder Futhark Alphabet.
The rune we are exploring today is Elhaz (el-hahz) also known as Algiz.
The keywords associated with this rune are: Protection, Defense and Opportunity.
Sounds uncannily like our Tarot Reading yesterday. 🙂
Elhaz is the rune of defense and protection and its shape is said to represent both the elk, with its imposing antlers, and the sedge plant, whose sharp leaves act as a natural protection from would-be predators. Both images illustrate the power represented by this rune.
Drawing Elhaz in a reading indicates that you are safe from danger, and there is no need to fear. However, don’t take the protective energy for granted by being reckless with your actions. As long as you remain alert and clear-minded, in touch with your intuition, you are headed for a positive outcome.
Elhaz has also been associated with reaching up to connect with the divine for support. It can refer to an upcoming opportunity or quest. Usually this involves one or more other people who may bring an offer or an invitation to join in a venture of some kind. As long as your intuition agrees, go for it. This is a favorable time for a new endeavor, and it is likely to produce positive results at a rapid pace.
Elhaz indicates protection from negative energy and people, protection of property, strengthened friendships, and possible astral communication.
The birthdates associated with this rune are January 28th – February 13th.
