Rune Inguz (Ing, Eppel, Ingwaz, Enguz, Iggws)
This rune is often associated with masculine energy and the Moon. The Inguz rune represents Nerthiz, the god Ing (or Freyr), who is the embodiment of fertility. It is this fertility that we call upon to create.
The shape of the Inguz rune shows balance, representing the harmonious relationship between ourselves and the four elements or four directions. Inguz reminds us of the ancient connection between the gods and the land. It is a rune of grounding, and tells us to reconnect and re-link (which is the true meaning of the word ‘religion’) with our spiritual natures and to reintroduce ourselves to the earth and all its beauties as well as its forebodings. This will reconnect our bodies, minds and spirits.
Inguz is a rune of movement, action and reaction. It is also one of responsibility. The Inguz rune indicates that you are on a spiritual path or journey. Drawing this Rune means that you now have the strength and personal power to achieve completion, resolution and finalisation with some issues that have been a burden or have been long drawn out. It is crucial here to complete projects and finish unfinished business. From this comes an exciting new beginning. You must be done with the old to allow room for the new.
