The Rune Reading of the Month: Algiz.
Algiz is the 15th Rune in the Elder Futhark and the seventh in the Unconscious Aett (family group). Algiz is an Air rune that relates to the whole body, aura and especially the spinal cord.
Algiz is the active theme from 29th January to 12th February.
Algiz is the strongest protective Rune of the Elder Futhark. Algiz relates to the animal totem the swan. It’s shape looks similar to a swans foot. Swans are graceful beautiful birds that are protected by Law. Underneath that composed exterior is a powerful being that protects its space. This is worth bearing in mind in how to use this potent Rune.
As a Protective rune- its Peace is found through Artistry. Odin used Algiz Rune to connect the head and the heart and to keep grounded in the now. Often called the Rainbow Bridge Rune, look out for rainbows as they may signal a time to use your Creative powers to bring inner calm and peace to your life. In times of change- I love to remind myself of the deep wisdom of the The Serenity Prayer.
O God, grant us the serenity to accept what cannot be changed;
the courage to change what can be changed;
and the wisdom to know one from the other. Reinhold Niebuhr
Algiz calmly asks;
- Are you feeling grounded and safe?
- Do you yearn peacefulness within yourself? Perhaps try meditation, yoga, art, writing, craft, making music, or dance.
- If you live, work, commute in busy chaotic environments-imagine the Algiz shape wrapped around your whole body like a loving protective cloak.
- If you are going through challenging personal change or feeling fearful- use affirmations such as “I am safe” and “All is well” to keep you feeling safe and secure and centred.
