The rune sowilo is the rune of the sun. To the Norse, the sun was known as ‘Sunna’ or ‘Sol’ and was considered feminine. The sun’s light and warmth supports life and growth. Sowilu stimulates spiritual awakening as a life giving force to new understanding, this runic energy creates awareness and pushes someone going through the stages of an awakening. The energy of this rune encourages one to take on a positive attitude and move forward along their pathway. Sowilo reminds us to catch the rays of the sun when we can to bask in the sunshine. The warmth from the healing rays of the sun charge us with energy to achieve goals that seemed impossible.

From the historical rune poems about Sowilo we get:
The Anglo Saxon rune poem translated tells us: "Sun is ever a joy in the hopes of seafarers when they journey away over the fishes' bath, until the course of the deep bears them to land."
