November 7, 2010 – Eohlx


Eohlx is the letters x or z

Anglo-Saxon rune poem (from

The Eohlx-sedge is mostly to be found in a marsh;
it grows in the water and makes a ghastly wound,covering with blood every warrior who touches it

Eohlx is the rune of protection and sanctuary, a place secured against harm and danger, perhaps surrounded by dangers so that it can be protected. It’s most obvious form is awareness. You are just in touch with your environment, choosing the route that avoids the traffic jam, sidestepping at the moment before the cyclists would have ran into you, and choosing to wait for 3 seconds at the green light, and thus missing the speeding motorist who decided to run the red.
