Ior the sound io

Anglo-Saxon Rune poem (from ragweedforge.com)

Ior is a river fish and yet it always feeds on land;
it has a fair abode encompassed by water, where it lives in happiness

Ior is translated river-fish, often interpreted as being a beaver or fresh water otter, as by earlier mindset, they were considered a fish. It is also often associated with the World Serpent, Iormungand.
Today, the meaning for me has been about boundaries, limits and, as I wrote in my divination journal, parameters. Sometimes, you just need to experience your limits and get a sense of your boundaries, and live within them, accept them, and understand them.. You don’t always have to push yourself. Sometimes, doing so will work against you.
