The Teiwaz Rune, meaning Strong Direction/Destiny, is associated with the the sun, which symbolizes getting what we want. The molding of character is the theme when Teiwaz appears. It is not something you pick in trivial matters; it is a profound symbol. Occasionally, you veer away from your chosen path, but eventually you return to it. This shows your strength of character, and it is this that Teiwaz stands for. It is a positive sign and makes us question what we really want.
If you have picked this Rune to confirm a directional choice, take it as a confirmation that you are on the right path!
In issues of relationships or a devotion to a cause, an ideal, or a path of conduct, you need to have patience. Strength can be found in patience. The path is CLEAR; you need to persevere through a period of time to reach the reward.
You are ultimately responsible for you life and its direction. Remember, your life is not predestined, but it does follow a course called destiny. Once your destiny is set, it is difficult, but not impossible, to change its direction. Only you can choose to stay on the chosen path. Finally, it is important when the Teiwaz Rune appears to look forward not back. Your destiny is ahead of you not behind in your past. When this Rune appears look forward in any question asked.

Other popular Teiwaz Rune meanings
The Teiwaz Rune has many meanings to the one casting the runes. As you continue to cast your own runes, you will see that each symbol will carry it’s own special meaning to you. Furthermore, here are some other popular Teiwaz Rune meanings.
Teiwaz Rune Meaning according to Ralph Blum – “Warrior Energy – Victory – The Sky God Tiw”
This is the Rune of the Spiritual Warrior. Always the battle for the Spiritual Warrior is with the self. Funding a will through action yet unattached to outcomes, able to be radically alone, remaining mindful that all you can really do is stay out of your own way and let the will of Heaven flow through you – these are among the hallmarks of the Spiritual Warrior.. – Ralph Blum “The New Book of Runes“
Tiwaz according to Rune Secrets – “Tea-waz” – Literally: “The god, Tyr” – Esoteric: Justice, Sacrifice
Tiwaz is a warrior rune named after the god Tyr who is the Northern god of law and justice. Tyr is related to the north star in the Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem, around which the fixed stars in the night sky appear to rotate. Ancient seamen used Polaris as their main navigational aid in their long journeys, and the symbol as an arrow pointing upward is perhaps made in reference to this. This symbolizes the positive ordering of the cosmos and humankind through law and justice and our moral compass. – From the Rune Secrets
Elder Futhark Inguz Rune Meaning – Tyr (Warrior God), the Tyr Rune, fatherhood, the arrow, a spear point.
The arrow of the Teiwaz rune represents going straight to the source, or the heart of things. It shows hitting the bullseye on the target and shooting straight. This rune gives one the ability to remain objective and judge in fairness. It also gives the potential for handling conflicts positively. The Teiwaz rune symbolizes new challenges and initiations into new understandings. It represents voluntary sacrifice made by someone who understands exactly what they are giving up and why. – From The Elder Futhhark Runes
