Dear Friend, tiny, yellow flowers blooming at the base of a glacier is such a beautiful, comforting sign. I may have been shivering on that cool June afternoon, but the light of Iceland’s midnight sun suffused the entire scene with a subtle, almost divine energy. It’s no wonder my Germanic ancestors revered the sun as a goddess – Sunna. Much of the ancient world associated the sun with masculinity – the ancient Egyptians with Ra, the Greeks with Helios, pulling the sun in a chariot. I embrace Sunna’s feminine energy. Her warmth on cold days always seems more like a mother’s embrace to me. Hail, Sunna!

Icelandic Rune Poems & Magic

With the first sixteen Postcards From Iceland blog posts, I’ll also include one verse from The Icelandic Rune Poem, which has been called the most systemized of the rune poems. Rune poems are thought to encapsulate esoteric knowledge of the symbol. Such interpretations are used in modern divination and meditation. Learn More?

Rune Name



Old Icelandic

Týr er einhendr áss
ok ulfs leifar
ok hofa hilmir.
Mars tiggi.


Týr = god with one hand
and leavings of the wolf
and prince of temples.
