Viking Vegvisir Rune stainless steel pendant on a stainless steel chain.
This pendant features the Viking compass, Vegvisir, encircled with the Elder Futhark Runes and measures about 1 1/4“ in diameter.
The Vegvisir, ”That Which Shows the Way“, pronounced ”VEGG-vee-seer“.
”If this sign is carried, one will never lose one’s way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known.“
The Elder Futhark is the original runic alphabet of the ancient Vikings and consists of 24 letters. The runes are symbols of the most powerful forces in the cosmos. The word ‘rune’ means both letter and secret. Runes allow one to access, use, and change the world shaping forces they symbolize. Odin watched the Norns from his seat in Asgard and envied their powers and wisdom and bend his will toward the task of coming to know the runes. To gain the secret knowledge of the runes Odin sacrificed himself to himself. He hung himself from a branch of Yggdrasil , pierced himself with his spear, and stared down into the shadowy waters of the Well of Urd below calling to the runes for nine days and nine nights. At the end of the ninth night the Runes accepted Odin’s sacrifice and shown themselves to him, revealing to him all their secrets and powers they possessed.
