Laguz represents the origin of all organic life in the universe. It is the rune of the sea, from which all the life of the entire earth has come forth. The rune is therefore subject to all matters of the sea.
It is also subject to reverie, emotions and daydreams. Only when you are attuned to creation can life flow as it should. Mental balance is a result of natural nourishment.
Like the sea, a part of life should always be in motion. This rune is closely related to the power of the moon, feminine intuition, harmony and life energy. If it appears in the interpretation it has an important message for your life - or even a warning.
Laguz represents all that is within and without, that which flows and is in motion. It represents the source of organic life in the universe and is the rune that initiates into life.
It wards off cowardice and offers protection from betrayal. The rune bent downwards is the rune of initiation.
It wants to give the following tip to the person seeking advice: To pay more attention to the messages of the subconscious, which are sometimes difficult to recognize, and to pay attention to the voice of the subconscious, that is, the dreams.
So it means to pay attention to the dreams and, above all, to interpret them correctly.
Origin and Meaning of the Laguz Rune
Water is a strong elemental force that man can never tame. Drawn by the power of the moon, water flows wherever it wants. The sap of plants, the blood and the entire sea: the moon rules the liquid.
If you want to live in harmony with creation, you must be attuned to the seasons as well as the moon. Those who live in harmony with nature automatically change their perspective and see many new possibilities and paths open up.
The rune Laguz can train clairvoyant abilities, enhance concentration, stimulate visualization, and promote spirit travel on the astral or etheric plane. It can be used to influence other people, or to control dreams.
For its appropriate purpose, however, it is used to overcome cowardice, train steadfastness, calm children in the dark, and protect against betrayal.
Laguz is a travel rune and therefore bestows protection against dangers while traveling, especially during air and sea voyages. It is associated with the goddesses Nerthus, Nehalennia and Njord and is related to the animals hawk and goose. It is also associated with the flowers water lily, and levkoje, and the trees willow spruce and mountain ash.
The rune Laguz is not only the rune of the seas, artists and feminine energy. It also indicates the mode of movement, the perfect way of moving forward. Flowing is a good way of moving forward, after all, powerfully opposes all adversities.
The river of inner power continuously carries more water as more individual abilities are gathered and added. A rushing river of water can easily flood even large obstacles or skillfully flow around them if they are too formidable. Nothing can stand in the way of water so easily.
Translated to life, this means that even the biggest supposed obstacles can be overcome if personal abilities and energies are connected. Only in this way does the strength arise to master challenges and overcome hurdles in life. Only those who are fully focused and concentrated can successfully overcome life's problems.
If the rune falls in reverse, there are some small and large blockages on the way. This is connected with the request to collect the scattered energies and personal abilities and bring them together into a powerful stream of water. Only in this way can great obstacles be overcome.
You should question whether you might not get bogged down in the many little things instead of concentrating your energies. For example, you can imagine a small river in the forest flowing towards a rock. The river dams up in front of it, collects the water and eventually foams over the rock or skilfully washes around it.
So always ask yourself whether you are actually using your abilities economically or sparingly. Thereby the rune is an important companion for more vitality, life force, renewal and the origin. It indicates that it is now important to bring the energies together and to overcome obstacles in life with the combined power of all abilities and to grow from them.
Fixed Laguz Rune Meaning
This is a round of feminine intuitive knowledge. If it is drawn, it is associated with the advice to follow one's intuition. All intuitive, personal abilities are then particularly strong. In particular, if the rune Perth also appears in the reading, the ability is strengthened to its maximum.
Another meaning can be that you are unconsciously protected or guided by higher powers, just as a prophetic dream can be meant. Regarding relationships, the rune symbolizes the woman.
If the rune appears in the interpretation, it means that together with the power of intuition can master any emerging problem. It is not without reason that it stands for learning success and a good memory.
The rune gives you the message that re-evaluation, purification and relaxation are important in your life now. Especially when Mannaz appears next to her, it means that others will approach you harmoniously and with understanding.
Reversed Laguz Rune Meaning
Laguz, conversely, is an indication of a time of confusion. Misjudgments can harm the actions as well as wrong decisions. Caution is advised, as a lack of creativity may be imminent. If no positive runes surround it the reversed Laguz is not a good omen.
Intuition puts you in a situation you can't handle. At the same time, the temptation is enormous to take the easiest way and not to resist the temptation to do the wrong thing. If Laguz not surrounded by delay runes, you should get out of the not nice situation as soon as possible.
If Laguz appears in reverse, it is often associated with a warning against a woman who can lead to trouble. Especially neurotic personalities are meant here.
However, if the interpretation is otherwise positive, it can also mean a lady who is helpful, but who expects something in return for her support afterwards. If the reversed rune occurs together with Perth, a failure in instinct and wisdom is pre-programmed or has already happened.
