Ansuz is the mysterium tremendum of the rune row.
The A-rune is instrumental in the creation of mankind. It describes two of the several spiritual gifts given to Askr and Embla (the primal man and woman) by the gods Ódhinn, Hœnir, and Lódhurr (a threefold aspect of the god Ódhinn). These gifts were önd or anda (breath, spirit, animating life principle) and ódhr(inspired mental activity, inspiration). This is the stave of Ódhinn as the numinous god of magic and of ecstasy.
Ansuz is the receiver-container/transformer-expresser of spiritual power and numinous knowledge. This force is received from the Æsir and transformed in humanity to be reexpressed toward the multiverse in magical and religious acts. This ecology of power works in tandem with that described by Ódhinn’s reception of rune wisdom and subsequent expression of that wisdom to mankind. The A-rune encompasses the medium through which numinous knowledge is received, the container of that power, and the force itself, which is manifested as the ecstatic state. This container-contained equation is common for symbols of the inspired or ecstatic state. In Norse mythology, the poetic mead of inspiration and the vessel in which it is contained are both known by the name Óthrœrir (the exciter of inspiration). This is the ecstasy that leads to the formation of a body of lore and wisdom.
This is the rune of the word, song, poetry, and magical incantation (galdr) as a container and expresser of magical force.
Ansuz is a magical ancestral power, one that has been handed down from generation to generation along genetic lines. The ancient Germanic peoples knew that they were “descended from their Gods,” as the genealogies of their kings, heroes, and clanic chieftains show. The power link between gods and men was, for them, unbroken. It remains so. Through the power of this rune, the realization of the link between the ancestral gods and their people may be regained. This is an ecstatic concept that complements the more stable, the institutional force of Othala.
The A-rune embodies the death mysteries of the Æsir.

Elder Futhark Rune
The Elder Futhark is the oldest form of the runic alphabet, with a Germanic character, used from the 2nd to the 8th century. About 350 inscriptions of this type of alphabet have survived, mainly from the Jutland Peninsula and Skåne. As a result of phonetic processes in Germanic languages, it was replaced in Scandinavia by the reduced so-called Younger Fuþark, and in Anglo-Saxon areas by the 28-character, and later 31-character Fuþork.
According to Norse beliefs, runes were given to people by the god Odin. Runes were also taught by Heimdall.
It is believed that runes are symbols working on the principle of “radiation of shapes”. Each symbol evokes subtle energies from the spiritual world and the cosmos. In addition, runes influence the subconscious by activating mental forces that are hidden under the threshold of consciousness. Nowadays, runes are used by some people to shape their personality (i.e. to strengthen certain features of the adept and eliminate others such as fear, anxiety, etc.).
