INGUZ RUNE ELDER FUTHARK DETAILED MEANING
Ingwaz, Inguz or Ing is the 22nd Rune of Germanic Elder Futhark and the 6th Rune of the Aett of Týr. You will see me using all three names interchangeably.
Esoteric interpretation of Ingwaz is the Germanic earth god who works with Nerthus, the earth Mother. The Ing-Nerthus cult was very strong among the peoples of the North Sea.
The Old English Rune Poem says:
Ing was at first
among the East-Danes
seen by men,
until he went eastward
over the wave,
his wain rolled after him:
thus the Heardings
named the hero.
Freyr was also known as Yngvi, the old Norwegian name on Ingwaz. You can now understand where the Rune draws the fertility elements from.
The meaning of Ingwaz, that in most situations is positive due to the fact that this Rune is not read reversed, always brings some changes to a situation. The negative aspects of Ing Rune can really only be highlighted by the neighboring Runes.
The Rune brings a period of happiness and faith. All your obstacles will now be replaced with opportunities.
The Rune means that you are no longer walking in circles, you now have a clear destination and a plan for how to get where you want to be. It is time to let go of the old patterns, behaviors and people to make room for the new. Quality is now more important than quantity.
It is the time for action, you can be bold and courageous, even when taking on an opportunity in the unknown area.
The Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem Says:
Ing was first among the Eastern Danes
seen by men, until he soon afterwards
departed over the ways, a wagon running after him.
Thus, bold men named this hero.
Interesting to highlight: while Ingwaz does not have a reversed position, it has sort of a shadow aspect to it. Sometimes a person is unable to let go of the past and move on in life. You do a reading, you predict a new opportunity, for example at work. But a person is too scared to quit their job and take a new one because they don’t want to work with new people, or the job seems to be too hard. And they get stuck at their old job for years, missing the chance presented to them by the Ing Rune.
Rune Ingwaz Advice: get rid of everything and everyone who is dragging you down and is holding you back. Look at the world around and everything it has to offer, as your time is coming. You need to strive for success and growth.
