 NAUTHIZ ELDER FUTHARK RUNE MEANING

 

​Nauthiz often seems to be connected to “fate” but it does not actually mean that destiny is at play. It means that the “need” to do something (quite urgently) exists and through this Rune you can achieve an action plan and necessary wisdom to face the fate.

 

Nauthiz brings forth both the sense of need AND liberation from the powers of necessity and struggles associated with it. This can be seen in Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem:

 

(Need) constricts the heart,

Tho to the bairns of men it often becomes

Help and health nevertheless,

If they heed it in time.

Nauthiz has the ability to help you find the right path and a solution to your problem (need). 

 

Nauthiz will support you during difficult times but it is asking to show patience, perseverance and control over your emotions and actions.

 

With regards to the Elements, some attribute Water qualities to Nauthiz but mostly, Nauthiz refers to a self-created Fire (two sticks rubbed together to create Fire are illustrated in the Rune). The so much needed Fire was to help the World of Men to grow and become.

 

Rune Advice: Pull yourself together! Stop crying, complaining and feeling sorry for yourself. Release the past and look into the future. Start acting now, show your strengths and power!

RUNE NAUTHIZ IN MEDITATION & RITUALS

Nauthiz often signifies the issues and unresolved questions or actions from the past that resulted in the need you are facing today. Use it in meditation to tap into your intuitive part and understand what brought you to the position you are in today.

In all other Ritual matters, Nauthiz is still used to bind.

 

 It can be used in protection Rituals and to strengthen the Bind Rune. I would say to be mindful when adding it to the Bind Rune because it IS the Rune of CONSEQUENCES, so really mind your intentions here.

Nauthiz has long been used in Icelandic Love Rituals due to the sexual elements present in the stave. It can be used in Rituals when one is looking for love or lover.

Amulet or Talisman with Rune Nauthiz

In general, it is not recommended to wear an amulet with Nauthiz on a daily basis. The Rune is used during the times of need to get through struggles or break some bonds. You may even draw it on your body for a time being to really work through its energy.

NAUTHIZ RUNE MEANING IN HEALTH MATTERS:

Like I’ve mentioned above, if you are asking about health issues or want to simply ask the Runes “What areas of my health require attention?” Nauthiz will point out the following areas: Arthritis, Joint Pain and Viral Infections.

 

Nauthiz can point on self-esteem issues and personal shadows. It comes with a warning that change needs to happen and those unrecognised needs must become conscious.

NAUTHIZ RUNE MEANING IN LOVE & RELATIONSHIP:

Nauthiz can signify a love and relationship that is very binding due to the dependence between partners. You can theoretically use it in love rituals to bind the lovers but understand that it will not be an easy bond to break, if needed in the future.

NAUTHIZ RUNE MEANING IN CAREER & FINANCES

 

Nauthiz brings loss and a sense of dissatisfaction. You may have issues and misunderstandings with your boss or colleagues. You need to find strength inside and not fall into despair.

 

Otherwise you will find yourself upset and depressed which in turn will only make the situation worse. Find other ways, make more connections. Pursue your goals and career aspirations no matter what.

RUNIC TATTOOS: RUNE NAUTHIZ IN A TATTOO

 

If you read the Complete Guide to Rune Nauthiz on my website, you will notice that I don’t even recommend wearing this Rune as an amulet for a long time.

You see, Nauthiz is the Rune you would work with during the time of struggles and need. You can even put it on your body but for a time being.

To live your entire life under the influence of this Rune can be difficult and truly is not the best idea.

Rune Nauthiz means both the need and liberation through a thought through action.
