Berkana
Growth, Purity

Letter- B
Divinatory Meaning- Birth, becoming, mother, shelter, liberation, maternity, fertility, health, new beginnings, growth, conception, plenty, clearance
Magickal Uses- Healing (especially infections), achieving conception, making a fresh start
Myths & Deities- Frigg, Idunna
Symbolism- This rune symbolizes womanhood, and Gaia herself. This is a very nurturing rune, which is applicable in domestic matters; i.e. children, spouse and family.
A spring-like perpetual growing is the meaning of this rune. The Birch tree is highly
associated with berkana and the "b" is with smooth lips, not like saying "bird". The
meditations associated would concentrate on the rapid growth of a new situation or
fertility, although inguz is also used. Problems that are treated with berkana usually
come to pass with fruitful outcomes.
