April 5, 2010 – Uruz


Uruz is the vowel U

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

The aurochs is proud and has great horns;
it is a very savage beast and fights with its horns;a great ranger of the moors, it is a creature of mettle

Uruz (the auroch) symbolizes strength, power, and potential. As the auroch was the wild precursor to modern cattle, it is potential, the potential that can be shaped and formed to achieve ones desires. As the auroch was strong creature, that was very fierce and dangerous, it is also power and strength, material strength and spiritual strength, which are both valued. It is a bit more masculine, compared to what can be seen as it’s companion Ac (the oak) which is a bit more feminine. It is also a rune of healing, applying that strength to rebuilding what has been damaged, and giving it the power to be stronger, better and powerful with health. In a reading, it indicates that those values are being expressed or are needed in the situation. Sometimes you need to work, and apply power and your strength to situation, in order to make it right or at least work out as best as it can.
