The sixteenth rune of the Elder Futhark. Sowilo ends the second Aett on a high note. It brings us out of the dark night of the soul which Hagalaz invited us into; Sowilo is the light at the end of the tunnel, the culmination of our efforts. Sowilo represents the sun, its clarity and its blessings for us. Sowilo brings success, the victory we win for ourselves and what we care about. Sowilo empowers and rejuvenates, releases stagnation, and brings us into our healing wholeness. After this Aett’s journey, it is hard won and well-earned.
