Ear is the dipthong “ea”
Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)
The grave is horrible to every knight,
when the corpse quickly begins to cooland is laid in the bosom of the dark earth.Prosperity declines, happiness passes awayand covenants are broken.
Seeing that this rune appeared at the beginning of the week, and now it appears again reversed, tells me that it’s role and influence has no completed itself. What I find interesting is that this ending (and reversal) occurs on the day when the two benevolent planets of Astrology, Jupiter and Venus, are also changing the retrograde motion and moving forward. No longer does “prosperity decline, happiness pass away and covenants are broken” but instead they will now increase and improve, at least a little. It doesn’t necessarily solve all of your troubles, but with the direct presence of their benefic influence, things can improve again.
