Lagos tells us emotions prevail. There is little room for logic and rationality; everything is more suitable for intuition. The impulses of the unconscious are developed; the sense of creativity and uncertainty shows up. Dream and reality remain together.
The answer to why Laguz, refers to the fact that the unconscious world pushes forward to move into the conscious one. The unknown content inside of us brings pressure to bear on one�s mind. Things that are still out of shape are trying to get a definition according to familiar codes in order to have a meaning.
This rune suggests us to think things twice to see everything clearly, instead of acting under an impulse. Emotions should not be represses; one has to let them flow. Only if we understand their meaning, they will be useful.
It helps to open the way to things that flow without any order at all. It represents strong instincts. The end refers to stay back to think things over while one is completely alone, with no influence at all.
Laguz leads us into a gloomy moment, which is associated with fantasies and feeling. It is time of art and inspiration, which is far away from reality. It is not a moment of steadiness, but fluctuation. In another case, this rune may refer to night time, the Moon cycle or menstrual cycle. The moment Laguz talks about is the one in which contemplation prevails over thought.
First, Laguz suggests a humid place. It may be a place by a lake, or a city by the shore or the delta. In other sense, this rune may refer to the Moon itself. It may refer to places such as a city with canals, a lake or lagoon, swimming pools, big pipes, or any other site where water is an outstanding feature.
Laguz refers to a creative person; he is often in a bad mood, isolated and he is often skeptic of people�s ideals. It is a person who shares esoteric or symbolic beliefs. It may refer to an artist, a psychologist, a priest, or a hermit.
