rune pairs: sowilo | eihwaz

©2021 Michael Raven

paths wend through
tangles & time
all much more than this
this life is a mirror
of the mirror of a mirror
looking back
i take up my blackthorn staff
& follow the unending track
until the end of time

sowilo: sun, faith in outcomes, action, revelation, enlightenment and guidance along the path, spiritual and individual will, dedication, victory

eihwaz: yew, mysteries of life/death, liberation from fear of death, recalling past lives, vision, ancestors, shamanic ecstasy, near death expereiences

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.
