A few more passages from Lisa Chamberlain’s book for reference:

“A very positive rune, Wunjo literally translates to “joy,” and indicates all manner of happiness and well-being. Situations that have been difficult are resolved and optimism is renewed. It may be that a surprise development comes into your life that changes everything for the better. You may experience a feeling of being truly blessed by the higher realms. However, bliss and harmony are also present,
and more consistently so, when we take a balanced approach to life. Constantly focusing on the negative will ultimately bring further negative circumstances—via the Law of Attraction—whereas the practice of recognizing what is going well will not only bring you more well-being but also means you
are feeling satisfied and at peace with your life more of the time. If you have been feeling down, discouraged or irritable, Wunjo may be asking you to adjust your view and focus on what brings you joy. Doing so will allow the positive energy represented by this rune to enter your life.”

“As the rune of joy, Wunjo is also associated with happy relationships. You are truly enjoying the company of others. Friendships are deepening and romance is successful, whether a relationship is just beginning or is more established. Wunjo reversed signifies an unhappy time, where things are not going the way you want due to conflict or unexpected problems. You may be lacking energy and
interest in life, or stress and anxiety may be dominant in your experience. Avoid making important decisions now, as you are not in a good frame of mind to choose the best course, or to even be aware of all of your options. In relationships, there may be tension or misunderstandings, possibly leading to
arguments or even the end of the partnership. If you can, take some time out to let the negative energies subside and return to the issue with a clearer, calmer mind and heart.”

“Additional Meanings
Wunjo is considered a good sign when it comes to business and prosperity, as well as the rewards of following your ambition in general. You are enjoying your work, especially if you are involved in something creative. Now maybe a good time to start a new venture, depending on the other runes in the reading. Wunjo reversed in this context warns that now is not a good time for new projects, or may simply indicate that your ambition has been blocked by real or perceived obstacles or interference. You may be dissatisfied with your job or with the results of your work. If this is the case, focus as much as you can on other areas of your life that bring you joy. In this way, you can balance your outlook on life and make more room for new, positive developments to come in.”

I loved this Rune’s focus on positivity as a way of living (not always easy I know) and how that can affect our life. It has links to relationships as well but I think it focuses on what we can grow from bonds if they are looked after properly. Relationships are give and take for different reasons at different times and remaining as positive as you can really help to nurture love and strong bonds :heartpulse: I also noticed its reference to The Law of Attraction and it made me think of the Threefold rule, whatever you send out into the Universe comes back to you x3 :heartpulse:

@TheTravelWitch @Jeannie1 You are both so welcome :slight_smile: I honestly believe that finding this community was a gift from the Universe and I have such an urge to make sure I give back for that gift. I don’t feel pressured or anything like that, not at all, I just really feel like I want to give back if you know what I mean? I’m loving every moment though :heartpulse: Blessed Be :heartpulse:

I know exactly what you mean, Lisa! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: There are many good communities out there, but what takes a group to the next level is how the members actively reach out to share and collaborate with each other. It’s the best feeling in the world when coven members help to lift each other up- it’s a magickal thing! :sparkles::grin:

Thanks so much for fuelling the forums with your enthusiasm and passion- that good energy is contagious! :heart:
