Beginnings, Fertility and Birth - Nauthiz (reversed)
Nauthiz reversed doesn't have a very clear translation. One possibility could be that you need to be careful in a relationship. You may have too much of an emotional attachment to the wrong partner - a person who will take advantage of you and use you until you have nothing left. Eating the wrong food could also lead to serious problems with your health.
Growth, Flow and Energy - Othala (reversed)
Othala in reverse depicts many negative qualities. It can represent homelessness and poverty. You feel lost, as if you have no roots, but be cautious as you will regret hastily thought out decisions. Your lack of vision could cause the loss of what you hold most dear. You'll lose a loved one - a soulmate - unless you have the nerve to take a calculated risk.
Changes, Polarities and Balance - Laguz
Seen as the ultimate feminine rune, Laguz translates as water, lake, and lagoon. Laguz is also linked to cleansing, and the tide. Now is the time to think clearly and change elements of your life that make you unhappy. Just like the tides, your feelings towards a partner are constantly changing. Find a lover and a friend who'll fill your life with adventure.
Protection and Defence - Gebo
Gebo translates as gift. This rune is also linked to love, partnership, forgiveness, and ability. You will come into a large amount of money at some point of your life. If the windfall comes in the form of a gift, you must be willing to give something back. You will also have good fortune with a life partner - found through discovering a new talent.
Learning, Art and Creativity - Ehwaz
Ehwaz is the rune of the horse. It represents, movement, speed, beauty, capability, spirituality, and loyalty. You want to change your circumstances for the better. Freedom and travel are important to you, although lethargy and confusion can stop you from fulfilling your dreams. Help will come in the form of a loyal and faithful partner - a soulmate.
Change and Metamorphosis - Sowilo
Sowilo translates as the sun. It is the rune of light, energy, strength, confidence, discovery, and wholeness. Confident, curious and spiritually aware, you will always be a positive force. The power of the sun translates into warmth in all relationships. Good social skills, a healthy body and sharp mind will allow you to realise your dreams.
Completion, Rewards and Luck - Teiwaz
Teiwaz is the rune of battles, warriors, sailors, and masculine power. Courageous, fearless, dedicated and diplomatic, you have the ability to meet any targets that you set. You have wisdom and an honest heart which will be tested. Teiwaz is from the Norse god Tiw, so look to Tuesday as a day for making big changes - especially if it involves a journey.
Inner Strength and Spiritual Guidance - Isa
Isa translates as ice. The ice rune represents cold, lack of emotion, stagnation, lacking passion. Be aware of potential risk as thin ice can be treacherous. Also beware of false smiles. To change your life, the crossing of water could be beneficial, but you must keep these plans on hold for a better time. Remember that winter will eventually become spring.
