Today’s rune makeup was inspired by the runes Kenaz and Elhaz(Algiz)

Meaning- Torch

Elhaz (or Algiz)  represents restraint and waiting for the opportune moment, protection against hostile influences, warding, and careful consideration of boundaries.

Today’s Rune Makeup was inspired by the runes Ansuz and Elhaz/Algiz:

Ansuz represents stability, order, intellectual activity, learning,scholarship, spoken word, creation, and the breath of life. This rune has a strong connection to Yggdrasil and to Idunn’s ask basket in which she carries the apples that grant immortality. It is associated with those we hold in high esteem and respect, helpful advice, wisdom, and learning from others.

Meaning- Mouth or Divine Breath

Color- Purple

Deity- Odin

I was only planning to do one rune today but Elhaz (Algiz) literally jumped out at me (as if I needed further confirmation that today would be rough):

Elhaz (or Algiz)  represents restraint and waiting for the opportune moment, protection against hostile influences, warding, and careful consideration of boundaries. It represents the need to meditate on how best to protect yourself and those you care about- is it better to engage in action, reaffirm your boundaries, or make a strategic retreat?

Meaning- Elk or Protection

Color- Black and Purple

Deity- Heimdall
