Talk by Leila Vey
I have seen Laguz linked with Temperance, and The High
Priestess, but I feel its strongest connection, by far,
is with The Moon.
When I read about Laguz, I might as
well be reading a description of the Moon card. It is
truly a perfect and profound fit. It is probably the
best rune/tarot fit in the entire Futhark.

The Rune Poem: Verse XXI Laguz
Water seems interminable to men
If they should venture on a shaky bark;
And the sea-surges greatly frighten them,
And the sea-steed takes no heed of the curb.
