rune pairs: laguz | berkanan

©2021 Michael Raven

i dream my shadow
past that underground lake
plunging blind seeing
to emerge
sheltered within the
breasts of a goddess

laguz: “lake”, subconscious, dreams, imagination, the Jungian “shadow”, development of second sight or prophecy, love

berkanan: birth or becoming, change, stillness, creative processes, concealment, female, healing, safety

Note: There is no divinatory question being considered, but merely an investigation into the relationships the runes might suggest as they come together. For these exercises, I am not considering the murkstave implications from the drawing, but focusing exclusively on the core concepts. At a later date I may consider the implications presented by a reversed rune — possibly when I start casting the runes in a more traditional way — but I am more intent on learning the primary meanings and making connections via wyrd at this time.
