Runic month of Uruz begins
Thursday, July 16, 2009 9:05 AM
The runic month of Uruz begins today (July 14th). It is the second rune of the Elder Futhark. Uruz is the embodiment of the now-extinct Auroch, a huge version of the Longhorn steer last hunted in Poland in the 1500s.
Uruz, like the Auroch, symbolizes pure bodily strength. This strength is not purely that used to exert the body to create work, but the strength of the entire individual and the sum of his parts; body, soul, spirit, luck, Will, etc.
In esoteric exercises, Uruz is used to bolster the ability of the body and mind to work the Will as well as ground the body to the Earth, using that connection to pull the very gravity of the Earth up into the body to affect the outcome of the working. Uruz can also work in reverse, shunting off maligning energy or ill Will back into the Earth where it is dissipated and dispersed.
Think about the benefits of Uruz until July 29th, when the next runic month begins.
