I dont normally do runes do I? This morning I walked past my runes and they called out to me and said they had something to say someone needed to hear so I said cool (I dig talking to inanimate objects) and this is the rune that was chosen "ehwaz". Now Im not really a great rune reader so I will just give you the meaning and you can take it from there.
The first meaning is literally "horse" is horse your totem animal?
The meaning is "the mind will trust the body, the body will trust the mind." I looked around online and found some interesting interpertations...here are the ones that jumped out at me:
"Literally: “Horse” – Esoteric: Trust. Rune of harmonious teamwork and trust. Rune of pairs of entities working together for a common goal." from rune secrets.
Wikipedia had this awesome rune poem;
ᛖ Eh byþ for eorlum æþelinga wyn,
hors hofum wlanc, ðær him hæleþ ymb[e]
welege on wicgum wrixlaþ spræce
and biþ unstyllum æfre frofur.
"The horse is a joy to princes in the presence of warriors.
A steed in the pride of its hoofs,
when rich men on horseback bandy words about it;
and it is ever a source of comfort to the restless."
I also found references to tantric twin, trusted friend and "the fetch" which made me really go hmmm....I remember that word from long long ago...the fetch is the opposite sex double that we all have, the double used to attract a member of the opposite sex, and the double, or doppleganger. Carlos Castenada called it "the double". There are lots of references to the double in literature, the sacred union, the hero twins, the marriage, the union. Oh and Epona goddess of the horses also popped into my mind. I hope this reaches whoever needs it. ~Mamma Moon
