Happy Woden’s day! Thought I would pull a Rune in honor of today. What a gift to pull this Rune for today.
Germanic name – ANSUZ
Anglo-Saxon Name – OS
Old Norse name – ASS
Phonetic value – A

4th Rune of the Futhark Runes
Represents order – the defenders in Norse mythology are the Aesir
It represents consciousness, intelligence, communication, and reason.
This is the Odin Rune (Order) and its element is AIR. Air is essential to all life forms and without air, we do not have sound. Air is a medium through which we have communication. Air, or wind, is how seeds are spread through the Earth helping to fertilize the land.
The Gift of Odin is ‘vital breath’.
Air (mental) and wind (chaos) are both a part of us. Odin, with both of these residing inside of him, is a physical expression of chaos controlled and directed.
This Rune is a great reminder for this time that we are in. We all may be feeling some sort of anxiety or stress within us that stirs up the energy of chaos. We must become conscious of our Self so we can channel this chaos into something constructive. Allow it to stir the winds in the mind, to stir up ideas within our minds to allow us to create, to focus the energy.
Learn to be the calm in the center of the storm.
