Runes – Ansuz
The Runes are magical in nature, but also a practical written language. It is thought that the alphabetical order of these symbols derives from the Etruscans in Northern Italy – in the border region of Switzerland and Austria. The Germanic Tribes in the Alps merged their symbols with the Etruscan form of writing to create a working system for their people. The runes were used for good luck, love, blessings, a good harvest, victory in battle (engraved in sword blades), and divination.
Ansuz is the rune of speech, communication, or mouth. It is easy to take speech for granted; only those with serious communication issues can understand its true value. Though there will be moments when we are asked to undertake public speaking which many find a frightening or stressful experience. Luckily we don’t need speech to communicate with the gods/goddess of our choosing. From here we can gain insight and inspiration to make life easier. With words we can create stories, poetry, songs, philosophy, spells and history. Ansuz is a rune of conversation, creativity, inspiration, and the power to relay such talents in spoken, written or recorded form.
