It is a rune which is considered sacred to Odin, the one who collects the souls of the dead people for their easy travel to Valhalla, or the underworld.
When it’s on the right side, Eihwaz is considered to be a rune that symbolizes death, but it should be taken as a natural process, as it happens when people attain old age, and after that, leave this world and all its materialistic pleasures.
Eihwaz signifies the value of death in our life as a simple process for taking birth again and getting a new life.
This rune also highlights its linkage to the opening door of the underworld.
Endurance and calmness are required to pass through a bad or a dull phase in one’s life. This indirectly also tells us that without old things moving out of our life, the coming of new things isn’t possible.
This rune can be used to interact with our loved ones who are now in the underworld after death.
But if it's reversed, it's not a good sign. It clearly gives us a warning of one receiving emotional issues in life, feeling nostalgic, and crying over what has already happened.
In reversal, Eihwaz also warns us of having emotional troubles due to the early demise of one’s beloved or a very close relative.
Eihwaz is also known as Ihwaz. It means “yew” in general.
