Laguz and Tiewaz

Laguz is the letter L. Tiewaz is the letter T

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poems (from ragweedforge.com)

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

Tiewaz is a guiding star; well does it keep faith with princes;
it is ever on its course over the mists of night and never fails

Todays runecast was unusual, in that two runes came out, simultaneously. Sensing importance and significance to this, I have given both.

The first things comes of interest to me is the point where the meanings of the rune poems cross. One describes the ocean, surging, violent and terrible. The other gives the guiding stars, the source of navigation for many peoples, not only on land, but also by sea. Together, you have this perilous journey, which you are navigating by following the stars, which are the only means to keep you on your course.

On the esoteric level, that significance still holds, as the flow of life can jerk as around, whether we just float along, or resist it’s current, but sometimes, we have the wisdom to know each one, and perhaps the turbulence experienced is lessened as we follow the guidance, and wisdom, to make decisions and judgement on the which flow we follow, or resist.
