This is the rune of strength, good health and sometimes advancement in career. It may also represent the male (one with strong emotions) in a relationship. Drawing this rune is a good indicator that your wish or dream will come to pass. Uruz indicates a time of great energy and health for you. It is also a rune of sudden or unexpected changes (usually for the better). Drawing Uruz suggests improvement in your business or finances (especially when paired with business or finance runes) will happen, but only through hard work. There will be new challenges and responsibilities along with the strength to take them on. Uruz brings the message of good fortune, exciting events and success.

Uruz Reversed
Uruz Reversed in your reading shows you may have failed to take advantage of the moment. You should not allow fear of a low self image to hold you back (might you have already?) from any challenges you encounter. This rune reversed tells you that your will power is weak now. Low vitality and ill health are indicated.

If Uruz Reversed shows up for a male, it might show sexual problems. You may be unmotivated. You may be experiencing bad luck. If Gifu or Thurisaz are in the cast, your strength is being used against you. With Raidho or Eihwaz it can show that lack of motivation will lead you to pass by a change for the better (unless the rest or the runes are negative, in which case you should let the change pass you by).

Converse: Hidden strengths must be realized. Ignore apparent opportunities.

Description: Uruz is the Rune of harmony, order and inner strength. Often it marks endings and beginnings of periods in our lives. Uruz also symbolizes your ability to tackle new challenges by confronting them with the powers that lie within you. Opportunities probably abound for you right now.
Reversed Description: Uruz reversed may represent a time of discord in your life and a disassociation from your inner strengths. You may be in a rut—absent of goals or challenges. The power to change this lies within you. While opportunities may seem to be nonexistent, they are there and waiting for you to find them.
