Laguz is the letter L

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from

The ocean seems interminable to men,
if they venture on the rolling barkand the waves of the sea terrify themand the courser of the deep heed not its bridle
Laguz is the ocean or in other intepretations, water, rivers and lakes. As the meanings indicate, it has a strong watery influence from this rune, an influence of flowing and responding to what is flowing around you. Sometimes that flow is dangerous, such as when a ship is caught in a storm or current, and the lives of those aboard maybe lost. Other times the flow is beneficial, like the river current aiding boats speed down the river. Not all flows are obvious, and in learning how to work with them, you can choose which flows to follow and move with, and what flows to leave behind or that need to be struggled with until you reach the right place to change, move or relax. Go with the flow, but which flow will you go with?
