The rune Wunjo is the rune of joy, happiness and things finally coming together. It speaks of the culmination of the phase of learning and growth and appears in a reading when one can be assured that a positive outcome that brings joy to your heart is in the distant tel of sight.

This rune is symbolic of a new clarity and understanding in the current situation. Wunjo tells that you have the presence and connection with your own self.

Wunjo Rune Meaning

Absolute love, the arrival of good news, an excellent turn of fortune and the establishment of a happy home. All in all, Wunjo represents a fulfilling life or at least a time when everything is on track.

Partnerships are of course of primary importance when this rune appears, not only the relationships of emotional nature, but also those related to business. Solid friendships and mutually beneficial arrangements are under the auspices of this rune.

But it is in the realm of love that Wunjo really shines. If you are unattached, someone attractive is likely to be pale skinned and have beautiful hair, but we must remember that these qualities were the old Norse standards of beauty and that they did not live in a multicultural society.

Artistic or other creative projects will be successful, and you may receive messages from afar, probably from a man who has driven over water. In health terms, the appearance of Wunjo indicates that tender loving care will pay off and that recovery is likely.

Inverted Wunjo Rune Meaning

Trust becomes a problem when Wunjo is reversed. Future partners may not be all that they seem, so don't give your heart away too easily.

Also in business, beware of double-crossing and don't take anything at face value. If at all possible, delay sweeping judgments unless you have all the facts so you can make a valid decision.

Tradition says that if you have an emotional concern, you should delay your decision making for three months. If the troublesome factors are in the business, delay any action for three days. Things will slow down for a while and you may despair over the prospects.
