Runes are very old powerful occult symbols that originated from Norse / Germanic peoples history predating over 1300 BC. They were a magickal language that was said to have been discovered by Odin (Viking God) to allow people to use the elements of nature around them. Today most do not know this but the English language has evidence to indicate it originated from this magickal alphabet they call the Elder Futhark or Germanic Futhark.. From the images below you may see why this is indicated as the original English language.
(Algiz – The magickal rune of Protection seen throughout the ages above)
In this post I wanted to discuss the rune Algiz (Elhaz, Algir, Algis, Algs, Elgr), which is the Rune of Protection and it has always been my favourite. In a previous post I referenced Ancient Occult Symbols – The Aegishjalmur where it indicates Algiz was used inside a magickal talisman..
“Algiz represents Z in the english language..”
Algiz the rune of Magical Protection..
The rune Algiz if used right was said to bestow upon its user or wearer the ability of protection. As the image implies the symbol of a tree, this indicates trees were a powerful image to the Germanic tribes and indicates there reference to using nature for magick.
Other references to the Algiz Rune meaning are the antlers of the elk, and the shape of the sedge-grass herb. The symbol has been indicated possibly to suggest the spread fingers of a hand raised in a protective gesture. It is a powerful rune of protection and, spiritually, it is often referred to as symbolizing reaching up to the divine.
(as you can see from the above image of the runes, the word futhark came from the first 6 runes meaning magickal alphabet.. Indications of possibly the origin of English can be seen in the language..)
How to Use the Rune Symbol Algiz?
Simply by using on a necklace, shirt or a talisman it is said to bestow these powers of protection.
