Runes – Isa
The Runes are magical in nature, but also a practical written language. It is thought that the alphabetical order of these symbols derives from the Etruscans in Northern Italy – in the border region of Switzerland and Austria. The Germanic Tribes in the Alps merged their symbols with the Etruscan form of writing to create a working system for their people. The runes were used for good luck, love, blessings, a good harvest, victory in battle (engraved in sword blades), and divination.
Isa is a rune of the great cycle of life, death and rebirth. Isa represents ice and winter and inward contemplation. All seasons are needed to create balance, in colder countries winter is well respected for its power and raw beauty. The ice and snow are protective forces for the hibernation of animals and the seeds that will be regenerate in spring. This magical rune of subterranean fire below and ice above is governed by the Frost Giants and the Goddess Skadi. In stories Isa is associated with bridges of ice, glass or crystal reaching to otherworld realms. Conjure the magic of winter with meditation, inspiration and planning. When the ice melts re-activate your personal quest.
