EihwazAs with the 13th card of death in the tarot
deck, this rune is also symbolic of death, but death
in the sense of a cycle of life. It highlights the
importance of death in human life as in death, regeneration
and rebirth. This rune is symbolic of the gate to
the underworld. Patience is needed to work through
a period of stagnation. Old ways will pass giving
rise to the new.

for the past. It can also represent emotional problems
linked to the death of a loved one.
