Wunjo is a rune of joy, ecstasy, serenity, and pleasure. It radiates blissful happiness and uplifting feelings of goodness. Wunjo is smiles, laughter, fun, entertainment, amusement, and enjoyment. Like Ansuz, Wunjo is associated with Shamanic trance, as this “ecstasy” is what takes hold of the sorcerer’s spirit on their journey.
Wunjo is prosperity, good fortune, and wellbeing. When present, you can almost always associate it with good luck and good news. Wunjo radiates positivity and wisdom, representing delight and gratification in life. Wunjo is the clear, calm, bliss of the soul. Meditate on this rune to balance any detrimental energies of unhappiness within.
Wunjo is a basic spell against weaknesses like anxiety, depression, and fear. Good health, meditation, and sleep will encourage its’ energies; allowing it to radiate from you in all directions. When we can achieve this constant flow of energy, we can begin to heal any habits that have led us astray. Wunjo is the hope (and rope) we use to climb out of the dark and uninhabitable places of the mind.
Wunjo represents the right choices and right paths chosen. The healthier choices we make, the more we experience Wunjo. It is our reward for correct behavior and application of Will, the fruit of alchemical harmony within. Wunjo is fulfillment and satisfaction, the feeling of achievement. When we are victorious in life, we are reminded of this blissful phenomenon present in Wunjo.
Wunjo also represents love and its’ reciprocation. In instances of unconditional affection, we are transported beyond the reaches of our bodies, entering a timeless sphere of ecstasy. This is the metaphysical creation of Wunjo and a direct means of communication with its’ energies. The more habitual work you do with Wunjo, the more enjoyment you will see in your life. This is a holy act of self-preservation.
Wunjo keeps us optimistic and enthusiastic, acting as a compass for us in hard times. Just like short whims of true joy, we are destined to feel equally crippling moments of sorrow and anguish. Wunjo is the promise of better days to come and the beautiful reminder that emotions are impermanent; all things shall pass. All hope is never lost if you hold-fast in your efforts.
