This rune signifies the power of the universe, but is a power that cannot be owned or controlled. You have the strength within you to fulfill all your dreams, but with strength comes responsibility. Strength is not a force to wield over others, but a force to stop others exerting power over you. Use your strength to keep focused on your path and to stop yourself being outmaneuvered.

It includes emotional and spiritual strength, male sexual potency, and good health. It can also imply a challenge leading to a major life change. Uruz in a casting may mean that personal success is near, so be ready to accept that power. It has also been know to be a rune of healing, so when you need that extra healing help, you can turn to Uruz.
