Vegvisir Runic Compass Nordic Protection Pendant

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 are used as a device for meditation and divination, to help gain insight into situations or questions
