This rune indicates a time of standstills. A freeze in some situation. All your plans should be put on hold for a while. Wait for improved conditions or more enthusiasm before continuing on. Paired with delay runes, positive accomplishments are unlikely now. This rune (unless paired with negative runes) indicates temporary delays and frustrations. It may tell of a relationship cooling off. (Examine the runes surrounding Isa to see what type of relationship.) There may be bad feelings and resentments, possibly leading to separation. Problems with loyalty are indicated. Unless Isa is paired with reversed love runes, relationship problems will be resolved soon, but in a strongly negative runecast, the relationship or project is no longer salvageable and the advice of this rune is to move on.
Converse: Coolness hides emotion. An impending change will not be of benefit. Smiles mask evil intentions.
