rune trios: ehwaz | kenaz | hagalaz

©2021 Michael Raven

blood washing blood
at the river ford
a never-ending festering wound
time to move
leave the old behind
or be forced to follow wyrd


“Horse”; Sound: “e” as in “equity”

Trust, harmony, a friend, cooperation, perception of subtle cues, speed, animal bonding, movement, restlessness, symbiosis, setting personal boundaries/limits

Murk: betrayal, enemies, mistrust, indecisiveness, “stuck”, boundaries not respected, stagnation


“Torch”/”flame”; Sound: “k” as in “candle”

Knowledge, enlightenment, cunning, acquisition of knowledge, transformation, illumination, female occult secrets, warmth, friendship, unity, “brightstave”

Murk: disease, ignorance, lack of humility, arrogance, elitism, health issues, ulcers, inflammation, fever


“Hail”/”Disruption”; Sound: “h” as in “hail”

Change and growth for long term, inner harmony, correction, evolutionary progress, transformation, inevitability of wyrd, representation of the dark hag (e.g., the crone, Cailleach), sudden change

Murk: crisis, radical change, disruption, unavoidable trial, the shadow, discomfort, catastrophe

Argument: Ever evolving this process, I have decided that three is a sacred number for runes (as is nine) and have expanded the number of runes to include in my exploration. Please do not confuse this for a wyrd reading, there is no divination implied in these rune explorations. However, there is always shamanic and internal alchemy being explored.
