Original meaning: Yew
Flexibility is indicated. Don't borrow trouble. Some events are outside your control at the present time, however delays may be beneficial.

Éoh reflects the quality of the European Yew, a tree that grows to great heights, is nearly indestructible, and has deep meaning for the peoples of Northern Europe. The wood of the yew was used in staves fashioned for protection against all forms of evil, and also in bows, a weapon that commonly was used to protect against the onslaught of an enemy charge. Beyond this however, the yew had deeper meanings, for many believe that the World Tree of ancient belief was a yew (though some said it was an ash). This would explain the use of yew trees in ancient European cemeteries and its connection in folklore to death. In order to reach the gods' realms, the worthy dead would have to journey up the World Tree from our plane here on Earth. Éoh therefore can represent death, or the spiritual death and rebirth of the shaman who makes a similar journey while alive.

Éoh also represents the ability to be hard and fast and ever on our guard against the "fire" that may damage us. By doing so we build strength deep within us so we appear rooted in any stand we make. Éoh gives us the ability to ward and defend ourselves just as the yew tree does.

The verse of the "Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem" for Éoh also contains the names of two other runes, Wynn and Éþel. Usually when this occurs it indicates that the rune contains qualities of the runes mentioned in its verse. Éoh then, drawing on its own symbols and those of Wynn and Éþel; could indicate the joy or ecstasy of death and rebirth in the estates of the gods.

In divination, Éoh can be a difficult rune to interpret. Nonetheless, it can indicate that a spiritual journey is about to be made or that psychic death may be in the making. In spellwork, it can be used as a rune of defense
