Isa is the rune of ice, the matter which life on the worlds originated from. It was considered to be the rune of Giants (specifically Ymir). Its message says that now is the time to prepare strategy and gather the energy to act, not for the action itself. Ice was considered to be a separate element by the Nordic tribes .
