There could be emotional cooling in a relationship or business partnership, there may be a separation or parting, and things may have to be shelved for a time. This is only a temporary situation, and could change within seven days, as this rune has a strong connection with that number. Money expected will not come, and it is best to leave things rather than push for a solution.

We will be quoting from all three main runic poems and will also be giving details of the god associated with the rune under discussion. We will also link each rune with a Tarot card (using Thorsson's versions), a colour and a polarity. Meanings will be given for the rune in upright and reverse positions, but it is worth considering that not all runemasters use reverse meanings.

Don't get involved with people who may be doing things which you consider immoral or incorrect.
