Born of fire, born of ice
Life is lived at such a price

Elder Rune: Elder Rune: Algiz: Protection/shielding, Heimo (the genetic connection between gods and the Folk), guardian of Ensiwëg, the Rainbow Bridge, expansion of archetypal consciousness, acute awareness, divine realizations, an awakening, drawing on the natural Will, invocation/supplication to the gods, preparedness, sanctuary, embracing the Divine plan, a safe harbor, connection with current events, the Elk, or swan.
Outside the favor of Heimo, failure to integrate humanity with the Divine, without divine protection, possible dangers lurking, lack of preparedness, spiritual blindness, inability to embrace fear, failure to face the ultimate good in all things, tested by the natural Will/Universal voice, without the need for protection, the inability to see/understand/connect with what’s coming, an aspect of death, helplessness.

Arrow come flying into the throng;

*H1R5; Halbdutzend 1, root 5, Irminsul’s root of creation
Rune Lesson: With Heimo’s example, we have the ability to squelch any incoming challenges. We know we are shielded thru our OWN strength of will. Our consciousness is expanded as we drive forward knowing that we are shielded by the correctness of the wise council given by those who have gone before us.
*from destruction to creation.
