Uruz: "Aurochs"

Spellings: uruz, urus, ur

Translations: the aurochs, bison, ox, drizzle, rain

Uruz is fearless       to every man
a very fierce beast,      it fights with its horns,
a famous roamer of the moor,       it is a courageous animal. 
~Old English Rune Poem

The Book of Rune Secrets says:

KEY CONCEPTS: manifestation, self-preservation, persistence, raw primal power, survival, physical growth, archetypal patterning, organic structure, formative life force, immediate action, permanence

“… once harnessed, the secret of Uruz can make dreams into physical reality in the same way it slowly and surely persisted in making your body. But it takes work and perseverance to master because it is the embodiment of work and perseverance… “

“… The energy of Uruz flows around the self, binding us to our biological form, fixing our patterns and giving us permanence, but the cost is that we form habits and conditioning that can be difficult to shed.”

The Book of Rune Secrets is available on Amazon. Also, there is a free lesson about Uruz on the Study Community.
