If you were born between November 13 and 27, happy birthday! Your birth rune is Nauthiz. This is a gift from the Norn to help you achieve your destiny and fulfill your purpose.
Nauthiz translates to “need” or “necessity.” It looks like fingers crossed for luck, or maybe two sticks being rubbed together to make a fire. As a species, we need fire. At the same time, we’re aware of its power so we fear it a little. This need-versus-reticence is at the heart of Nauthiz: it gives us what we need when there’s no comfortable choice. But this rune can also represent urgency, deprivation, friction…and sometimes an unhealthy demand or compulsion.
You may be wondering how Nauthiz can be a gift when the description makes it sound like something you’d want to avoid!
Very often, it suggests desperation, which makes it seem like a bad luck rune. But in these situations, we must recognize that need is more powerful than want, so Nauthiz only represents a temporary sacrifice or short-term loss for a longer-term gain. It may have a delaying influence, but its energy is very strong.
This rune gives us the ability to choose the lesser of two evils, to overcome the dark side of ourselves. More than that, it gives us the clarity to see what needs to be done and the courage to do it.
Are you a late Scorpio?
Everyone has lessons to learn. Yours is to learn to dive deep and get under that notorious Scorpio mystery and drama. You need to stop keeping secrets from yourself and do the shadow work. This is where the clarity and courage of Nauthiz will be especially handy for you.
You’re also here to learn to relax, to pull out all the stops and be generous. While your trust issues may have you keeping a great deal to yourself, remember that trust is a two-way street. You keep a lot of potential warmth and sparkle locked away that at least a few others would appreciate and celebrate. You know who’s worthy: trust them with those positive energies. It’s the temporary sacrifice of Nauthiz, but you’ll gain deeper and richer relationships.
Are you an early Sagittarius?
You’re here to learn to dream big and take risks. Chances are, you’ve already got some big, bold concepts in your head. As a mutable sign, you’ve probably already edited and revised those ideas multiple times. But you haven’t put them into action yet, have you?
Dear Sagittarius, your planet is Jupiter. You’re all about luck, growth, optimism, and abundance. Nauthiz is a reminder for you that there’s no time like the present. In fact, there’s a saying that if you wait for the perfect time, you’ll always be waiting. If you’ve been waiting for a sign, Nauthiz is it!
It’s time to launch, or least start actual preparations. Without action, your ideas will always – and only – be ideas.
Nauthiz acknowledges the difficult choices and uncomfortable sacrifices that might be required. But you have what you need to take the risk and turn those dreams into something real and rewarding!
