Berkano is the rune of nurturing, the Mother Goddess rune. I affectionately call Berkano ‘the cosmic boob rune.’ This rune covers all aspects of nurturing: nurturing self and others, as well as allowing ourselves to be nurtured, both by the Divine and the people in our lives.
The Anglo-Saxon rune poem for Berkano/Beorc:
“The poplar bears no fruit; yet without seed it brings forth suckers,
for it is generated from its leaves.
Splendid are its branches and gloriously adorned
its lofty crown which reaches to the skies.”
