WUNJO - The Rune of Joy

   

Alternative Names
Anglo-Friesian/Germanic: Wunjo
Norse (Viking): Wyn
Old English: Wyn
Other Names/Spellings: Vend, Vin, Uinne, Winja, Wungo,
                                    Wunja, Wunju

Pronunciation: Vun-yoh

English Letter Equivalent
W as in wax. V as in van.

Translation
Joy

diamondMeaning
Happiness, light, emotional satisfaction.

Characteristics
Understanding, realisation of ambition, success in romance and good health. Partnerships flourish. New beginnings are blessed with joyfulness. Your eyes are opened to the truth.

Wunjo is linked to a reward, a feeling of goodness and satisfaction, peaceful winning, and ultimate achievement. It contains the idea of everything going well because you are in total harmony with life. Wunjo also implies close co-operation and companionship with other people, because joy is not usually a solitary emotion. When so much of life can be negative, it is important to allow Wunjo’s joy to reach into every part of your life.

ashPersonal Interpretation
Happiness is yours if you are willing to work for it. You must strive for balance and harmony in your life. Always look for solutions rather than dwell on problems. For happiness to last, it must be founded on truth and honesty. Hide from the truth and you hide from true happiness. Seek only what is good and right, and good fortune cannot fail to follow.

Reverse
Misunderstanding. Ambition stalled. Romantic or partnership difficulties. Not a good time for new ventures.

Converse
The truth is hidden from you. Success is elusive - work hard. Imagined love is false. Partnerships under strain through secretive behaviour.

Tarot Talk by Leila Vey

Many experts list Strength for this rune and this is a good fit. So are The Fool and The Universe, (which is the association I prefer.)

The Universe is about successful completion, ultimate achievement, happiness, harmony and perfection, so of all the runes, I feel Wunjo is its closest match. Wunjo's joy also spills over into new beginnings as we forge new paths in truth and light.

The Rune Poem: Verse VIII Wunjo
He enjoys Delight who knows little of woe,
Of suffering and sorrow,
And has for his own prosperity, pleasure,
Eke the plenty of cities
