Please, check the links so can can find more information about URUZ. You should only read the part about URUZ because the three links below will be available with each different rune I describe in my posts.
Shamanic Journey with the Rune : http://www.northernshamanism.org/pathwalking-with-runes.html
Meanings : http://www.runemaker.com/futhark/uruz.shtml
Element : Earth
Gemstone : Garnet
Colour : dark green, dark grey
Tree : Birch tree
Plant : Iceland Moss
God : Thor
Divinations : You have the strength to make your dreams come true but do not forget the responsibilities that come with this. Your strength is not imposing your will on others , this is a strength for overcoming the attempts of the others to impose their will on you, a strength that does not allow interference into your choice. Use this noble strength to stay focused on your goal. Do not allow you to be led astray. Do not allow negative people to upset you. Control your Ego and you will succeed.
This is a rune of changes. It requires control over whatever will be released in risky initiations, it draws new situations in life.
Reverse meaning : you are unable to think clearly; bad health. Pay attention to the signs of your weakness or to the threats against you. You should become aware of your hidden strength.
Use : Uruz can be used on anything that needs strength, including yourself. It can be used on objects or for healing.
The Rune can be drawn directly on parts of your body that need strength. It can also be drawn onto the main chakras, especially Solar Plexus chakra for strengthening the will. Draw it with your thumb and inhale deeply to take the Rune into yourself.
Power to stand for your will.
Change that requires courage facing new responsibilities and challenges.
Good health, vitallity, energy for overcoming or success.
Magickal Use : it strenghtens the will and the muscles. Uruz stabilises the chaotic situation or state of mind. It is used in the Craft for drawing off unwanted control, for cutting off restrictions and breaking of barriers. It encourages confidence and courage. It can be used for restoration of hope, for increasing of the sexual desire, for strenghtening the mind.
Uruz is not safe when it is magically used. If not used correctly, it can bring disbalance and it can reverse the result , thus it can do harm.
Mythology : Here is a description of Thor given in the book by Neil Gaiman “ Norse mythology “
“ Thor, Odin`s son, is the thunderer….Huge he is, and red-bearded, and strong, by far the strongest of all the gods. His might is increased by his belt of strength, Megingjord:when he wears it, his strength is doubled….Thor`s mother was Jord, the earth goddess. Thor`s sons are Modi, the angry , and Magni, the strong. Thor`s daughter is Thrud, the powerful.
His wife is Sif, of the golden hair. She had a son , Ullr, before she married Thor…Ullr is a god who hunts with bow and with arrows, and he is good with skis.
Thor is the defender of Asgard and Midgard”.
