Eohlx reversed

Eohlx can be the letter x or z

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from

Eolhx 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 a rune of protection, and when it appears reversed, it may symbolize that you are not protected or secure as you think you are. It advises caution in all things, looking before you leap, because what appears to be, may not be what really is present. You just might be jumping into a trap, or you are overwhelmed with your own expectations and do not see what is really before you. Think things through, take stock of what lies before, take any advice with a grain of salt and don’t rush ahead, oblivious to what may be around the corner.

Eohlx Reversed

Eohlx is the letter x or z.

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from
The Eolh-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

After a momentary break, we have returned to Eohlx again. The general message of awareness, alertness and caution is called for, but today came the feeling that it is more focused on awareness. Being aware of your actions, your words, your environment, other people, their words, their actions, that car coming down the street that doesn’t seem to be slowing down, the odd smell coming from restaurant that you just entered for the first time, and the lack of customers, the millions of different clues, hints and signs that barrage our senses everyday, but are often ignored because so many people move about, lost in their thoughts, dreaming, hoping, fear, ranting, and then missing that sign that said “Watch out!” or the sheen to the newly washed floor which is slippery. The tired and upset look on the bosses face that reads “Don’t play games with me today, I am not in the mood.” Awareness of the self, awareness of others, awareness of your environment, it is this awareness that keeps things moving forward, keeps us feeling secure, and managing the mix ups and up sets of life.
