Additional information about Today’s Rune, Elhaz

 

algiz: protection

 

Phonetic equivalent: x, z

 

DIVINATORY MEANINGS: protection, assistance, defense, warning, support, a mentor, an ethical dilemma

 

MAGICAL USES: for protection, hunting

 

ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Heimdall, Gjallerhorn

 

ANALYSIS: Heimdall is an interesting and mysterious figure in Norse mythology, and I associate him with the rune algiz because of his role as protector and guardian. He is the watcher at the gate who guards the boundaries between the worlds and who charges all entering and leaving with caution. He is best known for his famous horn, but his sword is also important in the consideration of rune. Snorri mentions that the poetic name for a sword is ‘Heimdall’s head’, and the poetic name for a head is ‘Heimdall’s sword’. This is particularly significant if we consider that one form of his name was ‘Heimdali’, meaning ‘ram’. Through the image of the ram,Heimdall’s sword and his horn can be seen as two different sides of the same image. Both the sword and the horns (or the elks antlers) are symbols of power that may be used for either offence or defence, depending on the situation.

 

In terms of the journey, we have passed through death and rebirth, and must now face the Guardian before returning to our world. It is he who charges us to use our new-found power wisely. The person can no longer be simply concerned with their own personal development, but must now consider the effect that their actions may have on others. This is a crucial turning point, and the person will either choose to adopt a system of ethics or ignore the effect on others and only work to serve their own ends. Again, the sword is in their hands, but they must decide whether to use it for defense or offense.

Celebrating Spirituality 365 Days A Year – The Day of Heimdall

March 24

The Day of Heimdall

This day celebrates the horn-sounding guardian God of the Rainbow Bridge to Valhalla who, as Rig, was the progenitor of each of the different classes of traditional society. He was the God of orderliness and has been equated with the Archangel Gabriel—lord of the moon and patron of everything that grows upon the earth.

 

Prayer for the Angel Gabriel to Grant a Wish

In honor of Gabriel, light a violet votive candle and ask for something you need by saying:

In the name of the Great Creator of al that is, I call
upon Gabriel, guardian of the Moon, and all that
grows upon the Earth to grant me (state wish) this
special favor that I shall realize (repeat wish) for
the good of myself and to harm none.

Today’s Runes for 3/28

Today’s Runes

Jade Runes are most commonly used for questions about love, friendship, and relationships. Ger is one of the runes that touches on the cycles of the year, in this case the fall harvest. These cycles are eternal, which is represented in the rune by the fact that it is unchanged by reversal. Ger can represent pregnancy or other forms of fruitfulness, and is especially indicative of the cycles of providence and karma – that which has been sown is now being reaped. This rune can also represent the cycles of wealth, for crops were frequently a sign of wealth.

Runecast for Sunday February 20

This morning Algiz of Heimdall’s Aett popped out. Algiz pronounced “all-yeese” (Z or -R: Elk, protection) Protection, a shield. The protective urge to shelter oneself or others. Defense, warding off of evil, shield, guardian. Connection with the gods, awakening, higher life. It can be used to channel energies appropriately. Follow your instincts. Keep hold of success or maintain a position won or earned.

The elk stands alone, his horns silhouetted against the stormy sky. Protection. Stand alone. Keep open space around you. You are strongly caught up with something in your life and need to free yourself from excessive emotional bonds. By being too emotionally involved, you are wasting your energy and opening yourself to unfriendly people. By doing so, you are preventing yourself from progressing and creating disappointment, so try to be detached and objective, and in career matters, be independent. Instead of worrying about trivial, everyday issues, decide on the most important thing and forget everything else. Also, before involving other people, make sure that you really need their input.

Algiz Reversed: or Merkstave: Hidden danger, consumption by divine forces, loss of divine link. Taboo, warning, turning away, that which repels. (Note: the reversed or merkstave definitions are included only for reference as they apply to a multi-rune cast and not to a single rune that’s drawn blind from the pouch)

As with all, take only what feels right to you and disregard the rest.
