AEI03 - A keychain made of a closed loop steel
cable attached to a stone fob. A threaded fitting at
one end of the cable provides for the closure of the
loop. The fob is a highly polished black stone with a
hole drilled in order to attach the steel cable to the fob.
The stone fob is sandcarved with the image of the
rune Laguz, from the Elder Futhark which is then
color filled with a gold colored paint.
LAGUZ is The Water Rune, pronunced "Lah-gooze",
and is equivalent to the English letter "L", as in Let.
Its translation is water, lake, lagoon, meaning water,
sea, ocean, river or lake, cleansing, and tide. Its
characteristics are associations with water in all its
forms, cleansing action and tidal movement - ebb
and flow. It is a fortuitous omen for overseas travel,
fishing or other aquatic activities. Laguz means water,
a vital part of life, but a constant danger, just as
our journey through life encounters risks. Laguz
contains elements of fluidity, changeability, and a
lack of control. It represents the sensual madness of
sexuality, the unconscious, intuitive, and psychic
abilities. It’s deceptive elements come from
its variety, rather than from any menace. Traditionally,
Laguz is the ultimate female rune.
The rune meanings are augmented by further
interpretations for upright (right way up),
reverse (upside-down) and converse (face down)
presentations. In reverse presentation LAGUZ
means storm, flood, waves, corrosion or other
destructive action of water, danger of sinking or
drowning. In converse presentation it means to
beware of mariners or others associated with water
who may be trying to trick you.
Other associations of LAGUZ include:
