Loyalty, trust and dependence built between two partners with each passing day forms a web of emotional and spiritual one-on-one connections which become highly resilient as time goes on. Genuine friendship develops, for it’s own sake, the kind of bond we die for. It is the combination of emotional energies with the intellectual spark to produce harmonious partnership. Ehwaz is particularly relevant to the energies which bond two people together in lawful marriage. Its energies can unify two people in a strong cooperative relationship and attract the right persons for partnership in work, business, teams or service.
