Teiwaz Rune

The Teiwaz t-rune ᛏ is named after Tyr, justice, honor and was identified with this God. 

Tyr is the way.
He is the sky father
who guides us
thru life winding paths,
never abandons us
to darkness.


Teiwaz is the rune of the God Tyr. Tuesday was named after him. It is a rune of justice, strengths, warriors and order.

Like the warrior God Tyr, the Teiwaz rune represents inner strength, morality and honor. In Norse mythology and cosmology, the God Tyr’s sacrifice of his hand to allow the binding of the Ferris Wolf, was a noble one. Tyr is noted for his sense of duty and ethical responsibilities, in contrast to the pantheon of deities who are not concerned with such. The Teiwaz rune symbolizes all qualities associated with the God Tyr, including strength, heroism, duty and responsibility. It is said that Teiwaz is 'Tyr’s Rune'.

The Teiwaz rune is one of the oldest runes in the Elder futhark, having remained virtually unchanged from the earliest Bronze-age rock carvings, and it’s meanings and implications remain true. Teiwaz focuses the attention and forces discipline. Embodied in this rune is the energy of discrimination. It is one of courage and dedication.

The Teiwaz rune is phallic in shape and contains the embodiment of masculine energy, which resides in both men and women. The qualities of Teiwaz are often exerted and looked for in men more so than women, as a way of measuring and judging them. Teiwaz, the rune, is one of fatherhood and all that it entails.

The Teiwaz rune symbolizes new challenges and initiations into new understandings. It represents voluntary sacrifice made by someone who understands exactly what they are giving up and why.

Remember, the truth will always be victorious in the end .
