January 17, 2010 – Sowelo


Sowilo is the letter S

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (ragweedforge.com)

The sun is ever a joy in the hopes of seafarers
when they journey away over the fishes’ bath,until the courser of the deep bears them to land

Sowilo refers to the sun. That radiant heavenly body that warms the earth, shines during the day and is generally seen as a good thing by most people. While the source of this poem refers to travel by sea, and how seafaring people welcomed the sun, especially while they were out at sea, that is a generally a good recognition for everyone.
Esoterically and metaphysically, Sowilo is also the symbolic power of the sun. It drives away darkness, it is radiant and powerful. It’s energy helps plants to grow, helps people to see, and carrying that power inside of you also brings success, and a kind of shining quality to yourself that others can’t ignore.
