 The Isa Rune is also known as Is, Iss, Isar, Isaz

Isa Rune Meaning

Isa is translated directly into the word “ice.” Its opposite is Kenaz which represents fire. (It may be important to note that Kenaz does include the Isa rune within it).In a way we can say Isa is associated with the ice that met fire in the magical void of the Gunningap. Isa is altogether a rune of restriction.

Isa brings about the image of a stalactite in our mind. Isa is as the moving glacier, damaging object in its own path. Isa’s own inflexibly and its colossal quantity breaks everything in its direction. Isa is also like the frozen iceberg in the ocean: the little obvious extent is tricky on the grounds that it covers up enormous assets which act a great deal more top to bottom than what we envision. Therefore we can see this rune offers two possibilities to us. At one hand it represents quantity over quality; non-fluid and immobile. On the other hand it represents a covering of force. As a erect pole it can be claimed that Isa also represents the physical reality of the world tree.

Isa Rune Poem


Ice is very cold and immeasurably slippery;
it glistens as clear as glass and most like to gems;
it is a floor wrought by the frost, fair to look upon.

Old Norse

Ice is called the broad bridge;
the blind man must be led.

Icelandic Rune Poem

Ice is bark of rivers
and roof of the wave
and destruction of the doomed.
