Guardian Angel

All Hail 
The Rune ‘Algiz’ magical name;
an insignia of Protection, is His fame.
In His safekeeping, we are honoured,
in our awakening, we will prosper.

Boundaries, limits and self care,
are tested and strengthened there. 
Will you need a mirror of reflection?
or perhaps, a reversal for protection?

We might not reap all that we sow,
but from awareness, we will grow. 
Algiz raises upwards his guiding hand, 
asking: ’This, do You understand?

This sign is used on armour and shields,
as ‘symbolic’ of defence on battlefields.
Algiz will be your strength of mind,
when struggling in emotional times. 

A magnetic force, a field of energy,
if you have any problems, call *Hamingia*

ALGIZ  Rune  

Algiz is one of the most important runes. Standing for: Protection. Shield. Consciousness. Directing energy in the right direction. Resisting hostile forces. Guardian (*Hamingia*) Magical power. Sedge or Rushes. The Elk.

Temperance and courtesy are the sinews of this Rune’s protective powers.

Algiz victory runes were carved onto the shields, swords and spears of warriors as a mark of protection and sanctuary from harm.

The rune of life, his shape evokes the open hand protection.



Are the boundaries you have set being recognised and respected? Are you respecting the boundaries of those around you? 

Perhaps the challenge you are feeling now requires the courage to say no to something that no longer has a place in your life.

The primary objective for each Rune, is concerned with a correct relationship to your ‘self’ and are reflections of your own subconscious process.



If you are drawn to reading the Runes for your self; I’d suggest that you choose an oracle that you are instinctively attracted to. These poems are written from my own reflections. I use ‘The Book of Runes’ ~ (Ralph Blum) which were gifted to me by a dear friend, who has now passed. I am especially grateful to Sarah Beales who introduced me to these Runes as a study of self change.


(The fact that the runes were each given meaningful names confirms that they had some magical or spiritual significance to their users long before they emerged as an alphabet for records and messages.)



*The hamingja was a female guardian angel in Norse mythology. It was believed that she accompanied a person and decided his luck and happiness.


‘God within me, God without,

How shall I ever be in doubt?

There is no place where I may go

and not there see God’s face, not know’


‘Gud blessi thig’ ~ God bless you
