Rune Series: Thurisaz

Rune Series 3/24
First Row (Aett): Thurisaz
Meaning: 'Giants', 'Resistance'
Associated English letter: Th

Sometimes referred to as the Rune of Thor, the God of Thunder, slayer of giants. Thurisaz is resistance, inner strenght and determination to fight, succeed and/or destroy.
Its shape is indicative of a sharp tool, or a thorn. The use of technology can help us grow and expand, but the rune reminds us that powerful forces can easily break from our control and bring chaos.
"If we must fight for peace, then let us find our peace in battle."

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.
