Also called Beorc
Old Norse name: Bjarkan
is a female rune. It indicates Goddess force, female fertility,
and the relationship between a mother and her child, especially
the relationship between a mother and her infant. Maternal influence/nurturing
is key when Berkana shows in a reading. In readings concerning business
or some other non-mother/child situation, it still carries the connotation
of nurturing, such as the nurturing one would give a business project
in its early stages.
Generally though, Berkana
is indicative of the domestic situation.
When Berkana is reversed, it often indicates problems or frictions
between mother and child, especially between mothers and daughters.
Unless it is paired with highly negative runes, however, these problems
are usually temporary. Think of the frictions of a child becoming
more independent versus the mother who is unable to let go of the
child, and that is what Berkana reversed is indicating.
