August 30, 2010 – Eihwaz


Eihwaz is the long “i” sound, but is rarely used in script.

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from

The yew is a tree with rough bark,
hard and fast in the earth, supported by its roots,a guardian of flame and a joy upon an estate.

Eihwaz today signifies a coming together, that possibility of seemingly disparate things being linked, and a relationship being formed between them. That relationship might be benevolent, a conjuction that brings good things to both in harmony. It might also be difficult or malevolent, a stressful opposition, but it also involves balance, a dynamic tension that forces both elements into action.
