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.
The eighth and final rune of the first aett of the Elder Futhark. It is the rune of bliss and one of the Victory Runes, rounding off our first aett on a high note. It is harmony and contentment, it is the feeling of having enough, of feeling joyful and satisfied. It can also help with emotional healing to align with that sought state of joy, including being present in the moment and being grateful for what you find there. If you let it, it can direct you to new potentials and prevent stagnation. I have also found it useful in unlearning codependence habits.
