This rune appears to have a double meaning. It can mean sickness, particularly ulcers, or creativity and new beginnings. It is all connected with the underworld. I’m going to take a leap and say that the “ulcers” were not to be taken literally but intended to represent the metaphorical wound of the soul. Creativity and the wounded soul go hand in hand and is the realm of the shaman or magician (Odin and Freya).
