Rune Laguz in the direct position

The description of rune Laguz in the direct position is related to its several meanings. First of all, it is the flow of life, constantly changing circumstances. It is literally a river of time, a stream. There is another meaning associated with the symbolism of the flow. After all, streams can also be energetic. Speaking of a financial or love channel in a person’s spiritual body through which they receive benefits (including through runic magic), Laguz denotes these channels and streams of energy moving through them.

In addition, Laguz in the direct position are certain qualities described in the context of runic practice as feminine. These include a penchant for magic, the ability to intuitively sense a change of circumstances and adapt to them, the ability to achieve their goals softly – as water erodes soil, and a woman can gradually and seamlessly overcome great difficulties.

In addition, this symbol means developed intuition, the ability to anticipate future events, propensity to engage in fortune telling, fortune telling, seeing and interpreting prophetic dreams.

Laguz in the direct position encourages listening to your intuition, to immerse themselves in their inner world, trust the flow, to show flexibility and relaxation.

Rune Laguz in the inverted position

Laguz reversed can be interpreted in several ways. First, it is a suspension of events, processes, and flows. In this sense, it is somewhat similar to the inverted Raido, but to diagnose the situation of suspension is more difficult. Quite often it is associated with a deliberate magical blocking of certain opportunities for a person.

In the inverted position, this symbol can mean a ban on practicing magic and divination, usually imposed artificially in order to prevent. In addition, it can reflect the events after the misuse of magic or misinterpretation of any predictions.

Often speaks of the closed ways and possibilities, lack of chances to do anything about it at the present moment.

Interpretation of Laguz in divination


On love and relationships

Direct position

Laguz in a relationship is an ambiguous symbol. When divining the future of a relationship, this symbol indicates that it is too early to give an answer. At the moment, some important processes are taking place, the outcome of which will decide the future of the couple. Influence them with great caution, because the outcome may be unpredictable. Time is needed in order to understand the situation better. Possible second fortune-telling in a few days.

Means a young girl or woman, so falling out surrounded by negative symbols, for example, inverted Hagalaz, can indicate that the relationship is at risk due to the influence of such a person.

Answers to questions about this relationship may come in dreams or during meditation, so it is recommended to practice it at this time.

Inverted position

Laguz reversed in a relationship is a negative, but not entirely unambiguous symbol. First of all, it indicates that the relationship is on pause. It often falls in the case where one of the partners has taken time to rest and reflect on his attitude toward the other. It can also symbolize the temporary cooling of feelings in the couple.

Often indicates artificial interference in the relationship from outside. Understand the situation better help fall side runes or other predictive techniques.

Can indicate a deadlocked relationship when the feelings of both partners have, but something prevents them from staying together further. If you are in the phase, you will be able to make a decision about what to do and how to do it, but you will not be able to do it.

On career and finances

Direct position

The interpretation of Laguz in a financial and career chart varies depending on the question posed. In a general sense, this is a positive rune. It means progress in the cases, solving long overdue questions. In combination with the positive runes can talk about upward promotion, the appointment to the desired position.

Symbolizes professions associated with the frequent short trips. Can also point to typically female occupations.

In a positive environment, such as next to a straight Fehu, may indicate an increase in income.

Answers positively to the question of whether to change the field of work. Also indicates the need for professional growth and development, further training.

Inverted position

The inverted position describes a situation of career or financial deadlock. Most likely, the diviner is already aware of his situation, but is not yet ready to take action to correct it. Laguz reversed calls for a change, and action is immediate, but not too hasty. The most important thing now – to understand in what direction to move, and begin to apply effort, but not too hasty with their implementation, and act gradually and in stages.

This indicates a stalemate in terms of career development. Most likely, the current work does not allow the diviner to fully realize himself and develop beyond the position he is in now. In this sense, the inverted Laguz should be an incentive to change jobs. In addition, an improvement in the financial situation will also be unattainable until the diviner actively begins to change the circumstances in which he or she finds himself or herself.

On the health

Direct position

Does not have a specific interpretation in health divinations, like any straight rune, indicates the absence of significant problems. Also indicates youth and good physical fitness. Cheerfulness of body and spirit.

Inverted position

Indicates a pause or slowing of any important processes, for example, metabolism. Could indicate a lack of movement, leading to health problems. The slowing of vital processes in connection with the aging of the body or a serious illness.

”The Rune of the Day” divination

As a Rune of the Day it warns of important events that will occur in the near future. Calls to actively participate in them, not to refuse new opportunities, to move forward in their affairs. In the inverted form warns of a possible unplanned suspension, which should be perceived calmly. It is worth to listen to the signs that give the higher forces, divination in the morning will be useful. It is also worth paying attention to the dreams that were dreamed the previous night and will be seen the next. Their interpretation can help in solving many troubling issues.

Rune Advice

Never stop in their pursuit of the future. Everyone can live up to the changing circumstances and keep up with the flow of life, if it will make the effort. Development, striving to stay in line, not to remain on the sidelines of events will help to get what you want and not to be deprived of benefits. Passivity is very likely to lead to defeat. It is worth taking from life everything that is possible and available.

Many problems can be solved if you think them over and act slowly, but do not stop and have a clear plan. Helpers will be patience and intuition.
