It speaks of action and good health, and promises wisdom and the chance to gain a deeper insight into oneself. Drawn this way it also threatens ill health and inconsistency, ignorance and callousness, brutality and violence. Uruz can charge with an unstoppable fury and gore the stoutest opponents. A rune of creativity and sexual energy. Uruz also represents the death of a cycle, out with the old wild ox and in with the new. May indicate a dark period with material loss or the loss of a person but new opportunities will arise from this. It is indicative of an unpredictable power, tests and greed. Opportunities, sexuality and good luck are the keywords for this rune. You have the strength within you to fulfill all your dreams, but with strength comes responsibility. Strength is not a force to wield over others, but a force to stop others exerting power over you. Use your strength to keep focused on your path and to stop yourself being outmaneuvered. There will always be negative people, but don’t let them upset you. Master your own ego and you will succeed.
