Rune Series: Nauthiz

Rune Series 10/24
Second Row: Nauthiz
Meaning: 'Need', 'Necessity'
Associated English letter: N

Nauthiz is unfulfilled desire; a constraint, resistance or friction. The unconscious illusion of necessity is a resistance to the evolution of consciousness. This is a harsh, painful rune, but it often points to the truth that what we want is not necessarily what we need. It may give the wisdom to recognise what must be done in complex situations, even when the solution to a problem may not be comfortable.
Nauthiz can help with the recognition of many patterns that often repeat through our lives, and will not disappear until we learn their lessons.

The Runes of this series belong to the Elder Futhark, one of the oldest alphabets in recorded history. Each Rune has endless interpretations and deep meanings; while their origin and/or intent is lost to history, most interpretations come from the 'Rune Poems', possibly written around the 8th century.
