Norse Rune of the Day 08 01 2022
The Norse Rune which commands our ability to interact with our higher selves. It indicates that the individual who pulled the rune is in a process of deep thought and reflection about a situation. Ansuz is also a symbol of the divine realm. It can indicate communication with a deity or ancestor who is motivated to help you grow.
This rune is heavily associated with the Norse God Odin. The leader of Asgard, Odin had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. He would often leave his throne and assume the guise of Wanderer. Astride the 8-legged horse Sleipnir, the All-Father would travel the realms and gain insight. Because of this association, this can be a good indicator it’s time to step up your efforts on personal growth.
Get some insight from reading a book, listening to a Youtuber, or perhaps communicating with social supports around you. You can also take a more passive approach and just allow yourself to breathe and be in the present moment. Take note of the thoughts that rise up and question why they chose that moment to show themselves to you.
Remember, Odin became the Wanderer as a form of self-care. You can break the cycle that isn’t serving you by serving yourself first.
