Uruz - Elder Futhark Rune Meanings

Uruz is a rune of power and it is the the second rune of Frey's aett. The original meaning of the glyph is 'aurochs,' the primeval wild ox that our hunter ancestors prized so highly. Because our association with the aurochs is much older than that with domesticated cattle, some argue that Uruz is the original first letter of the rune alphabet. Hence 'uthark' vs futhark.

Etymologically uruz also links to our origins. Any word begining with 'ur' in Swedish, for instance, speak of ancient origins. For instance, the word ancient itself is uråldrig in Swedish.

My personal take on this rune is that there is a much deeper meaning for this rune which deals with our genetic origins - Origins that are coded in our blood. On this level, we are looking at true human DNA versus hybrid empathy bypass (psycopathic) DNA that came in later in order to manipulate Earth's population.

The reason the runes are such a powerful tool is that they can help free us from entrainment by those who seek to keep humanity as a slave race. I'm speaking of both the visual and the sound vibrations of the runes. Yes, the runes really are that powerful.

Chanting Uruz 


Uruz Divinatory Meanings  

General: blueprint, DNA, origins, power, stability, courage – reversed: power drained, out of whack, instability, experiments run amoc, cowardice

Some claim that Uruz is specifically related to masculine sexuality but I don't agree with that. I see Uruz as signifying a free flow of sexual energy, completely unblocked by shame and guilt (i.e. filthy alien programming). For specifically masculine sexual energy we need to look at Tyr in a reading.

Uruz can signify a relationship that makes you stronger together with Gebo - a dynamic partner ship but potentially filled with conflict (see surrounding runes if power struggles are indicated). Together with Fehu, it means success in business, provided you are willing to work hard and face your fears. It's generally a good rune for health, signifying a strong healthy flow of life force energy.

Uruz Magick

Uruz is an all around healer with strong regenerative power and can be used in combination with other runes for more targeted healing. The mysterious ALU (ansuz, laguz, uruz) is considered a protective bindrune.

Freya Aswynn suggests using Uruz with Sowilo and Ansuz for healing in her book Northern Mysteries and Magick (affiliate link).

Fortify yourself with Uruz when you are going through any form of awakening or initiation, as it will help you stay grounded.

The colour blood red is associated with Uruz and this is also the reason why the runes are often drawn with this colour - It gives each rune more power.

Use Uruz together with runes specific to any area where you need more courage.

Chant the Uruz rune while drumming if you are experiencing apathy, have difficulty staying grounded or if you are feeling drained.

Blessed be!

Do White People Have a Right to Reclaim their Ancestral and Tribal Roots?

Today, I'm blogging a response to an article on Medium because I stumbled on this article right after my daily Oracle post (which was very much about reclaiming ancestral roots), and felt deeply moved to rebutt the notion that white people have no right to reclaim their ancestry or tribal roots.

The author of the original article makes a lot of very strong statements, lumping all 'white people' together:

"White people already have a bunch of ancestry. We’ve recorded it for centuries. Other peoples are not so fortunate because white supremacists ensured that they would not have family history through slavery or genocide.
So all that you’re doing by 'reclaiming ancestry' is defining something that can be used to discriminate against others, NOT of your ancestry, and put us all into categories.
I say, drop the idea RIGHT NOW, that anyone is 'reclaiming' anything. You are already white."
The article is quite obviously written by an American becaus…

February Forecasts Pick-a-Pile Rune, Tarot and Oracle Readings

Hello my friends, I hope you are well and looking forward to all that February will bring. I think we can all safely say that we are glad to see the back of January that lasted forever and seemed to bring very little but bad news and ends with the UK divorcing the EU + concomitant threats of continued austerity. This morning I came across a relatable tweet where someone said:

"I have come to the end of my free one month subscription for 2020 and would like to cancel the subscription."

Okay, so January was tough for many of us both individually and on a global level but quitting is not an option.

Resisting the bad just makes it last longer, both in the subjective (time is relative) and the objective sense. Time to shift gears and begin to look forward to spring and what we can actually DO to make this world a bit better...

The February Full Moon in Leo happens on 9 Feb at 07:33 GMT. For astrological forecasts for your respective Sun and Rising signs, I recommend Nightlight As…
