Hey Peoples

I’m looking for a rune of cleansing and also one of rebirth, something that can be carved into a candle to be burnt over the course of a month

Anything would be a great help!

Hmm, let's see... According to my Asatru source, Edred Thorsson knows all in the way of runes. I know very little, but I'd suggest combining some of the Elder Futhark into something that would work well for your purposes.

Rebirth: Berkano (Beorc) for birth, new beginnings, re-birth, fertility, spring etc. You could combine it with many of the following.... Dagaz for dawn, awakening, breakthrough, transformation. Uruz has leanings of strength and potential. Nauthiz for overcoming adversity, self-reliance and self-initiated change. Jera for success, fruitfulness and change. Algiz for protection and awakening, growth and development.

Cleansing: Maybe Laguz? Laguz is water, the tide, cleansing, but also mystery, psychic ability, dreams etc. All that one associates with water. Combine with Berkano or Dagaz for birth or dawn, maybe. Algiz perhaps, for protection and connection with the gods.

Eh, I'm no Heathen, to be sure. I shall have to look up this Thorsson fellow. The runes are fairly involved. Good luck!

I would design or make my own.

Something that represents a connection to earth and to me, something tied irrevocably to Papatuanuku.

For me, it would probably at the very least include a koru. Or simply BE a koru.

Perfect for growth and rebirth, for hope and connection to Mother.

Many times, the simplest thing are the best.

Best to you. I hope you find what you need.

Wise words thank you :)

This is actually for a friend that I'm doing some work with so is a little harder to perfectly tune as such, but thanks all the same
