An increased awareness of what the future holds is heralded when Ansuz appears. It also signifies justice and general awareness. The wearer is bound to attain more knowledge and wisdom from a higher authority, teacher or mentor. This rune represents the instinctive, primal energy of the Uruz rune, tempered with the discipline and experience of Thurisaz. These elements are combined in the personage of Odin, who exhibits the characteristics of both chieftain and shaman; a god of wisdom as well as war. The Ansuz rune is often referred to as the ‘Rune of Odin’, the ‘Rune of the Ash Tree’ or the ‘Rune of Release’. In traditional references it is the ‘god rune’. Ansuz is the rune of inspired speech and incantation as a creative expression. Ansuz shows us the power of speech, which passes along knowledge with the breath of life from generation to generation. It is the passing on of knowledge through the spoken word, rather than the written. Usually Ansuz signifies an authority figure in the life of the individual, such as an employer, teacher, or parent. Whoever this figure may be, they are about to facilitate a positive life-changing event for the individual. One may look forward to a promotion or bonus due to excellent work. A book may be written, a great work composed, a long-standing problem may be solved creatively. Whatever this achievement is, assistance will be received from someone well qualified to give it. Ansuz may also reference a highly creative person, or a creative solution to a long-standing problem. Look for signals and confirmations which are all around you, all the time. Everything has a special significance.
