Rune of the Day: Lagaz
Lagaz is a rune of the mind: empathy, compassion, imagination, intuition and premonitions.
This rune appears when we need to listen to our subconscious and the messages it is sending to us. These messages may involve how we deal with others, or how we view ourselves.
Often, the messages come through our imagination, and are expressed in our creative endeavors or in our dreams. These messages help us revitalize or realign our lives.
Lagaz is telling us that now is a time to pay particular attention to the messages from our subconscious: our dreams, our intuitions, and our inspirations. They just might lead us to something great.
