This rune is about transition, not just minor shifts in understanding, behavior or actions, but major ones. Like a tiny bird fledging, or a child becoming an adult. This is a sign that the cycle of initiation has ended and it is time to strike out in completely new ways. At the heart of this transformation is leaving behind all that we have known for a more comprehensive view, as well as breaking out from routines and habits that have hemmed in our ability to achieve greatness. The time to honor our own power and strength has arrived, no longer are we to be students, but teachers. Co-creators of the future, points of crystallization for new ways of life and vessels for distillation of essential qualities that are needed to remake the world around us.
Rather than losing oneself in the changes, or acting recklessly, this rune reminds us to joyfully accept the hard work involved in our own transformation and proceed with a deep joy and strength of character that being peace warriors requires. Blessed Be!
