ALGIZ = Protection
Algiz is the Rune of protection and it is likened to the horns of an elk. We all have a need to feel safe. The horns of the elk enable it to go forward without fear of danger. The horns will keep an open and safe space around you. It is okay to progress or move forward. This could be a period of extreme highs and lows emotionally. The Rune is telling you not to worry about danger. It is giving you permission to proceed and progress in your life without FEAR. If it has any warning attached to it, it has to do with your health. Just be careful and look after yourself. Take time to know yourself; relax and look for an inner peace. Algiz gives you time to regroup and to come out fighting again. Warriors often etched this symbol on their shields before going into battle.
