Inguz is suffix –ing

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from

Ing was first seen by men among the East-Danes,
till, followed by his chariot,he departed eastwards over the waves.So the Heardingas named the hero

Inguz , or Ing, is the name of hero and God of Northern Europe. You might be familiar with this god by another name, Freyr. A lot of information about Inguz often speaks a lot about Freyr and various ritual practices involving Freyr, which is all fine and good. It will better explain the poem stanza and the event that it refers to. I am not.

To me, in a reading, Inguz signifies a force that sets other things in motion. A catalyst, if you will. That catalyst makes the possibility for other changes to happen, as it brings together the various elements and sets them in motion, which then creates something new from what was present before. When it does come up in a reading, you should expand on Inguz with other runes, to see the forces involved, and what will spring forth anew from this result. Suffice to say, I find the presence of Inguz to be very interesting, and something of note in any reading. When it does show up, it should get due attention.
