Laguz -- Water -- All is flowing as it should. This is the message of Laguz. Anytime this symbol of flow shows up, we can at least take heart that the elements around us are aligning as they need to. The question then is, are we aligning with the elements?
Anytime this Rune speaks in a spread, it's a time to examine if we're in sync with what's going on in our lives, and if not, how to get in the groove. Associated with a primal feminine influence, Laguz puts us in direct contact with deep, perhaps even unconscious drives. This inner connection can feel a bit discombobulating if we're off track, and especially so if we're not even sure what our track is.
When Laguz comes up, it's not the time to force outcomes. If the tide isn't suitable, if the current isn't going our way, this is the time to let it carry us. Funny how often those two things are related -- forcing outcomes, and letting What Is carry us. In this culture of "create your own reality," we forget how much active participation just flowing requires. How many of us really know how to do that? When we do know, how many of us can or will allow it? Even when you are tapped into the right places in your life, there is an assumption that you will always effortlessly be. The active part of going with the flow isn't in fighting the urge to do, it's in asserting a vision of peace no matter what comes -- externally, or internally.
Let Laguz lead you to the places that need attention. If you're not sure what the flow is or should be in your life right now, close your eyes and imagine swinging in a hammock and floating on the air, or drifting in an inner tube along the surface of a calm lake -- whatever sensual experience gives you lightness, support, the feeling of being so one with the elements, that you becomes them.
This is what being aligned with your highest needs and desires feels like, because at the end of it all, that connection is all you need.
