February 28, 2010 – Wunjo


Wunjoy is the letter W

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

Bliss he enjoys who knows not suffering, sorrow nor anxiety,
and has prosperity and happiness and a good enough house

Wunjo is often translated as Joy, Bliss and sometimes happiness. Etymologically, it is related to a german word for wishes or wishing.

Wunjo creates a category of it’s own, known as gamaruna or Joy runes. As I am typing this entry, each time I type Wunjo, I keep adding the letter y to the end. Esoterically it is the rune of Harmony, showing all things working together, being in the right place at the right time, reverberating and resonating in a kind of cosmic tuning. It shows that harmony is filling the day (although not necessarily Peace or calm) and that anxiety, sorrow and suffering is temporarily alleviated. It is also a heidrunar or bright rune, as there is a quality of light that seems to permeate contemplation of Wunjo, which is different from the light of other runes. It is rather like the light that fills the sky before sunrise, or just after the sun has set, where if you stop and watch and be with that moment, everything just seems to fall into place.
