Disruption; Disruption by natural events and uncontrolled forces

This is known as the Mother Rune, in the position of the sacred number nine. In its original shape as the six-pointed snowflake, Haegl had a geometric form found in the composition of many natural forms of life Hagalaz means Hail or Hail stone and is regarded is seen as the cosmic seed, for Ice was the second main element invoved in creation and as such it is the alter ego of kenaz. The Old Norse Rune Poem.talks of hail as `the coldest of grains’, associating it with the harvest, for when hail melts it is life-giving water.

Haegal has therefore come to represent unwelcome external chnage that if used positively can transform life and sorrow to happiness.
