Nauthiz is the rune that represents need and necessity. It is the rune that personified the Norns and Fate. Its shape is that of the bow which can provide protection. It provides what is needed most - protection, security and well-being for the individual and the family. It is also the rune for growth, friction and resistance which are symbolized by this rune, and the dialectic of idea and opposition which causes struggle and conflict that lead to growth and development for both the individual and group.
