EIHWAZ symbolizes death, whether physical or symbolic
EIHWAZ announces a waiting period that will allow the fountain to fill up again. This rune symbolizes the yew tree of death with evergreen foliage. In Nordic traditions, the tree is the privileged place of initiation. More than a physical death, EIHWAZ represents a break, a break to allow the passage to another level of consciousness. It therefore announces a period of great transformation.
This rune is symmetrical and therefore has only one reading direction.
