Ihwaz: Rune of Defense

Ihwaz is a yew tree and represents magic, protection, deflection and prevention. It has mistakenly become associated with death and misfortune because it used to be planted in hedges around graveyards. This was actually done to keep out scavengers, as yews are poisonous and thick all through the year. However, Ihwaz is also a rune of continuity and endurance, both of which are promised in the Death card. Ihwaz challenges us to seek transformation, to let go of the old and embrace change, no matter how fearful we might be of the unknown.

Astrology
Scorpio
Scorpio

Scorpio is the most intense of the astrological signs, associated with the deepest depths of the unconscious, with death, the underworld, with primal urges and instinct, with secrets and mystery. Scorpio’s influence on the Death card is profound and can barely be expressed in words. There is no mystery greater than death, nothing more feared or revered. As an extension of this fear, this reverence, this awe of death, we tend to fear any unknown, any transition. We want to see what will happen to us, where we will end up. No matter how evolved we become as human beings, there is the primal Scorpio urge within us all that wants to resist the unknown. Yet, we also have the free will summon courage to embrace the unknown despite our instincts.

Yet, instinct serves us well in many ways. While we resist the death of what we know, resist change, our instinct also tells us that death (in any form) is only one stop along the spiral of life. Instinctively we know that we are greater than our physical manifestations and can take heart in this truth so that we may look forward and become what we are destined to be.

It is also a planet of great endurance. Pluto’s presence on this card underlines the power of our hidden thoughts, deeds and beliefs. I reinforces the idea that judgement brings an end to old ways of doing and being, and thereby heralds rebirth and renewal. Pluto also serves as a warning to be aware of the darkness within so that we do not fall into a state where we are unable to accept forgiveness and redemption.

Saturn
Saturn

Saturn is the karmic planet of challenges, limitations, difficulty and discipline. It is a reality check on the expansion and generosity of Jupiter and its association with this card seems, at first glance, to be incongruous. However, Saturn’s influence is necessary in order to cultivate the discipline and work required to bring anything of worth to a successful conclusion. Without Saturn, there is no growth, no advancement, and without its hardships, we would not understand or appreciate peace and fulfillment. The feeling of wholeness and happiness represented by the Universe card can only be realized with hard work, some adversity and determination, for without limitations, we would soon find ourselves listless and bored. There is no greater sense of accomplishment than to meet Saturn’s challenges and reap the blessings of Jupiter.
