Tiwaz: A Trajectory of Daring


I pulled a single rune as a focus for this week, and sort of for the remainder of 2015. I got this Sagittarius-esque rune, Tiwaz. It's about focus, daring, bravery, justice, luck and safety on a journey...a lot of things I associate with Sagittarian energy. Rather appropriate for the Sagittarian birthday season right now!

I have been trying to focus my energies and not get too scattered by the myriad of activities, appointments, get-togethers and other life transactions happening now. Using a quote from RuneMaker.com:

Characteristics
Tactical genius, courage, bravery, dedication, daring. Protection on sea voyages. Negotiating and legislative ability.

coral (fossilized)Tiwaz is named for the Norse god Tiw, after whom Tuesday is named. Tiw is the Norse equivalent of Zeus or Jupiter. He was the god of war and justice, fair law and regulation, and success through sacrifice. He was courageous, fearless, the master tactician and a consummate diplomat. He allowed a wolf to bite off his right hand in order to bind the wolf's chaotic force and thus protects warriors (both physical & spiritual), the disabled and the left-handed. Tiwaz also represents determination and male sexuality. It symbolizes new challenges and initiations into new understandings.
oakPersonal Interpretation
There is a need for courage now, as your victory is already assured if your heart remains true. Make use of all the skill and wisdom you have acquired so far. Protect your faith, as it will be challenged. But truth, honesty and justice will always win through.




I find it interesting that Tiwaz is linked to the day Tuesday, which is today. Haha. The Norse mythology is fun to read about because my daughter, in her Waldorf-style charter school, is learning all about Norse mythology right now. She's performing in her class play on Friday called, 'The Theft of Thor's Hammer' and it's supposed to be a comedy, so it should be fun.

Sending you all positive focus,
MM
