Algiz : The Rune of Protection
Modern day runes are known to be a rendering of an ancient alphabet carved into small stones or wood pieces for the purpose of divination, spells, or talisman creation. Each rune represents an unchanging constant, a principle that's part of the mechanics of the very core of the material world. For example: A "harvest" represents the eternal principle of cause and effect, the karmic consequences of our behavior. We reap what we sow - this is the lesson of Jera, the rune of harvest.
Runes, however, can be used for more than just divination. If one learns how to work with the classic runes of the Elder Futhark runic alphabet, they can tap into the runic current from which the runes' magic can positively affect and change one’s life through one’s experiences with them.
One of the easiest runes to work with, magically, is the Algiz rune, which represents "protection." It can be turned into a talisman by simply carrying it around in your pocket or drawing the symbol onto objects that you would like to energetically protect.
You can also charge this rune with the intention of protecting yourself, an object, or a person. And it's also the rune of courage and bravery, so it can additionally be used as a personal talisman to invoke these qualities within you, perhaps before facing a challenging situation.
Because of their deceptive simplicity, runes can sometimes just take a little bit more effort to penetrate into, as there's an endless depth of meaning hiding within them, which may not always be apparent at first glance, as their limitless treasures are waiting to be revealed to those who seek them.
