Tuesday was named after Tyr. His rune is Tiwaz and looks like an arrow. The energy of this rune is to take aim and take action. This warrior rune is used to target the enemy. Tyr is the Norse warrior that sacrificed his right hand to bind the Fenris wolf. He was the only God with the courage to put his hand in the mouth of the Fenris Wolf so the other Gods cound bind it. While Tyr paid the price for the trickery used to bind Fenris, his rune is a rune of truth. Using this rune with untruth always exacts a price.
How do I honor Tyr on Tuesdays?
Strategize how to overcome opposition. Do something that takes courage. Be truthful in your dealings today.
In a personal approach; take aim on a habit you want to conquer or set a goal to improve a skill that will make you more competitive in your work or community. Know that Tyr usually requires sacrifice–though it can be time, the discomfort that comes with change, or occassionally injury. Choose wisely so the pain is worth the gain. Set a goal, make an oath and swear it on Tyr’s right hand. But be sure it is something you are willing to sacrifice for.
What does Tuesday mean to you? Where do you have conflict in your life and what are you going to do about it? What does victory look like?
