Ehwaz - the horse. Change, driven by connection and partnership.

I often think about what the horse might have meant, when the runes were used by the old nordic folks we most associate with the early uses of the Elder Futhark. Horses were change making in those times - owning the horse was the difference between a quickly plowed field or travelling across great expanses of land in a short period of time.

Horses allowed a person to stand taller, and they carried intelligence to make decisions in tandem of their rider. We're so used to riding cars, as a culture, we think of transportation as a tool. There were days when it also involved a relationship, a personality, and a being.

What things in your life are you co-creating the future with? How do they carry you?
