Stands for: Power (of the elk)
Casting meaning: The rune Algs represents the power that is found in an elk. The Gothic rune of Ezec represents the fifteen starts of traditional European astronomy.
Third eye, seeing the truth, clairvoyance, someone’s watching, the evil eye and protection. This rune is my favorite. The all-seeing eye. It represents seeing things unseen, also seeing the beauty in things others don’t. Can also be a warning of the evil eye or someone watching.
Intimacy, gentleness, sweetness, kindness, positivity, partnership
Tree: Heather (Erica spp., Calluna spp.)
Ur speaks of deep relationships, family, mates, and close friendships in both the biological family and non-biological family sense. It is nearly impossible to survive as a true hermit. As much as it can seem desirable at times to cut oneself off from the rest of society, the truth is we are stronger together. One of the immeasurable benefits of a light touch — letting go of small grievances, avoiding childish selfishness, and not letting irritability get the upper hand — is deep and lasting relationships. When you want something, chances are coaxing rather than forcing will get you the result you want… just like the old saying “you win more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.” Depending on your personality or mood, sweetness may seem counterintuitive. This Ogham suggests perhaps sweetness/gentleness is the best policy.
Nature is often fantastically cruel but she is also a protector and nurturer. Ur is her nurturing side. Ur teaches the beauty of the long cycle and of the flow that often goes unnoticed by busy, modern people. True kindness improves everything around you. Just as a single common plantain has an important role to play in a many-acred meadow, your small act of graciousness will reverberate and help you to evolve into an improved version of yourself. Don’t underestimate a single time where you checked your temper or did the right thing when you were tempted to do the opposite. Everything you do matters. Everything you do is part of the flow. You are indeed being watched, if only by a more enlightened version of yourself who knows better.
Hexagram Fifty – Seven/57
Sun / The Penetrating Wind
Wind follows upon wind, wandering the earth, penetrating gently but persistently:
The Superior Person expands his influence by reaffirming his decisions and carrying out his promises.
Small, persistent, focused effort brings success.
Seek advice from someone you respect.
Gentle persuasion is the key in this instance.
Though the words are soft, their speaker must be firm, calm and confident.
Gentle words are worthless if spoken with trepidation.
Wordless influence by example is also effective in this situation.
All persuasion should be almost unfelt, yet consistent and persistent.
Ask for feedback from someone you know to be an effective persuader.
Fifty – Seven
It represents intelligence and inventiveness. It brings wisdom in the later part of life. It is very creative and unconventional.
