The Laguz rune is one of the most mysterious runes and it is a great tool for our witchy practice. Are you curious to learn more about it? Keep reading this article and the Laguz rune won’t be a secret!
What does the Laguz rune mean?
The Laguz rune means sea, change, and hidden powers. This rune talks about the powers of intuition, especially how important it is to listen to it in order to live your life in complete freedom.
Hindered by excessive rationality and numerous social obligations, they often forget their most authentic needs: to be loved and to live in harmony with themselves and the surrounding world.
Laguz teaches us to draw from the collective unconscious, from the cosmic consciousness, that subtle, invisible yet perceptible place from which we draw archetypes, ideas, and knowledge. The glyph of the rune recalls a waterfall that falls from top to bottom, a hook that turns towards the sky and goes fishing in this sea of thoughts and words.
Laguz is the rune of water, of the unconscious, of emotion, of birth, of sensitivity, psychic powers, telepathy, clairvoyance, art, and spontaneity. Laguz is the rune of runes, divination, and interpretation, the source of Mimir into which Odin cast his eye to acquire the gift of prophecy.
It is associated with the god of the lineage Vani Njord, lord of the sea and the wind, of perturbations, dispenser of troubles and fortunes for sailors, identified with the mother goddess Nerthus of whom Tacitus speaks. Those who feel attracted to this rune should study and deepen all the spirits linked to the element of water: nymphs, nereids, naiads, camene, undines, and pelne.
Laguz is the link to the Source.
From its root, laku-, derives the French lac, the English lake, the ancient Icelandic logr, the ancient Irish loch, and the Latin lacus.
Lakes in mythology are magical and mysterious places, populated by fantastic creatures, some benevolent and others hostile, just as in the unconscious we can find unexpected resources, knowledge, and wisdom or make terrifying encounters.
The extraction of this rune means the collective unconscious, increasing energy, a birth, a change, or evolution is connected to the world of dreams, the unconscious, adaptability, emotions, empathy, and mystery.
Laguz indicates that we are in contact with our sensitive parts; they are not dry, dried up, in us the ascua flows, as well as energy, without obstacles or complications. We have the power to tap into the Source and information from the collective unconscious.
In love, this rune advises us to let ourselves go to the emotions, to melt and be more natural and casual, to love ourselves naturally, accepting ourselves. As for health, the advice is to engage in some aquatic activity such as swimming, in the pool or in the sea. In the workplace, if we feel the need for changes, it is the right time to give life to new projects or to start a new job: changes are already underway.
Laguz meaning if upright
The mysterious Laguz, linked to water and the Moon, warns that we are in a moment of transition: if you want to achieve emotional balance, you have to get back in touch with nature.
Taking care of your body will undoubtedly help you to enjoy greater physical and mental well-being.
Only in this way will it be possible to implement the changes necessary to achieve happiness.
Body and mind are not two autonomous entities, but they are in continuous communication with each other and both need to be in balance and harmony with nature.
Laguz meaning if reversed
Maybe you are too hard on yourself. Perhaps you are also too demanding at work or excessively perfectionist in everything you do.
Laguz, therefore, suggests adopting a more flexible and understanding attitude towards one’s mistakes and limitations. The satisfaction that one will feel for one’s successes, however small they may be, will have positive effects on our psyche.
An attitude that is too rigid towards oneself can, in fact, cause a feeling of inability to act due to the fear of making mistakes.
Laguz asks to be less harsh and to profit from all experiences, both their positive and negative aspects.
Laguz meaning in love, work, and health
Love: the rune of water and the Moon stimulates you to experience new sensations within the couple, abandoning oneself to the flow of emotions of both. Perhaps more than in other aspects of life, in love, it is necessary to let yourself go; this attitude can be very rewarding.
Work: If you are not satisfied with your professional situation and want to get out of it, this is the right time to do it.
Perhaps it will be enough to better organize one’s time and duties or it will even be necessary to change jobs.
Laguz encourages us to reflect on the situation and make a decision.
Health: doing aqua gymnastics, swimming in a pool or in the sea… Any exercise done in the water will help you relax.
