Today Eihwaz is telling me to protect myself. I recently hurt my back, and suspect I’m being cautioned against over-exerting myself today.
There is an image that always comes to mind when I pull this Rune. I see a fierce, yellow-haired viking warrior at the forefront of a raging battle. This rune is scribed on his shield to protect him from his enemies.
Whether the “enemy” represents myself and my habits/tendencies or a person/situation in the outside world, I’m being told to rally my personal defenses.
