Rune Study: Hagalaz
Hagalaz - The goddess Hella
Hagalaz (hag-ah-lahz) is the 9th rune and is the symbol for "hail" and the color Indigo.
Hella is the goddess of death and the underworld. She is the daughter of Loki and the giantess Angrboda. She is the sister of Fenris Wolf and the snake Jormungand. She is often betrayed as having her upper body a pale pink and her lower body a dark, greenish black decaying color. She rules Hel and her task is to look after all who die of illness or old age.
Uncontrolled forces either physical or psychological. Upsets, risks or disruption. Natural events that could affect future plans.
