Hagalaz represents hail and its portent may be likened to
an unexpected hailstorm, an elemental disruption of your
life. When Hagalaz is linked with other runes, it can
suggest limitation, interruption, or delay, and imply a
complete change in direction. Hagalaz can also mean
suffering, hardship, illness, or injury.
Challenges are occurring in your life. These are not to be
feared, but faced. A hailstorm is daunting, but if you catch
a hailstone you will see that it is only water, nothing to
be feared. So it is with challenges. Fire up your
determination, and face the challenges head-on knowing they
are just stepping stones on the way to your goal. The
greater the challenge, the more you gain by overcoming it.
Hagalaz has no reverse
Hidden dangers from the natural world.
Apparently easy tasks hide unexpected dangers.
A lover or partner is hiding something.

Tarot Talk by Leila Vey
The Tower is an obvious card to associate with Hagalaz.
It is about the sudden collapse of everything we know,
about destruction, and being rocked right out of one's
Its energy forces us to begin again and (hopefully)
build something better out of the ashes. Disruption,
interference, natural (and man-made) disasters,
challenges and sudden changes in fortune all link
Hagalaz with The Tower.

The Rune Poem: Verse IX Hagalaz
Hail is the whitest of grain
Whirled from heaven's height,
The wind hurls it in showers
Into water then it turns.
