Tiwaz is a god rune named after the God Tr after whom Tuesday is named. It is a rune of positive regulation that involves personal sacrifice to ensure a positive result. Also, like Sowulo, promises success in our achievements, but does require that personal sacrifice. This rune works well in legal matters but only if you are right to begin with. Tiwaz also represents determination and male sexuality. It symbolizes new challenges and initiations into new understandings.

There is a need for courage now, as your victory is already assured if your heart remains true. Make use of all the skill and wisdom you have acquired so far. Protect your faith, as it will be challenged. But truth, honesty and justice will always be.

Tyr’s rune is one of the oldest in the fuark, having survived virtually unchanged from the earliest Bronze-age carvings. It represents all those qualities associated with the God: strength, heroism, duty and responsibility.

Reverse Meaning
There is an indication of losing energy through ill-timed or hasty action. Examine your motives, are you concerned with self-conquest or the domination of another?
