The Vegvisir simply means “That Which Shows The Way”.
People believed that if you wore this symbol on your person, you would never lose your way in storms or bad weather.
The Vegvisir or runic compass is a Viking rune stave, a magical device used to aid in sea navigation. According to a number of legends, this protective symbol was inscribed on seagoing vessels to insure their safe return. Today, it is most commonly paired with the aegishjalmer, used as a symbol of spiritual guidance and an emblem of identification by Asatru believers.
The Runes surrounding the Vegvisir are the elder Futhark: a mystical Norse alphabet developed around 200 BCE. According to Norse myth, the alphabet was discovered in a vision by the god Odin. The word ‘rune’ literally means a ‘whisper’ or ‘secret' and is used as a device for meditation and divination, to help gain insight into situations or questions.
