Rune Tiwaz (Altruism) cross stitch chart

Today I will continue the series of inspirational runic cross stitch patterns (see Fehu rune and Kenaz rune patterns).

The Tiwaz rune has several symbolic meanings, among them justice, self-sacrifice and altruism. It is the rune of the god Tyr, who is most known for giving his name to  Tuesday (‘Týr’s day’). In Norse mythology, Týr sacrifices his arm to the monstrous wolf Fenrir, who bites off his limb while the gods bind the animal.

This small pattern is easy to stitch even if you are a beginner.

Altruism and self-sacrifice for a greater cause are the main meanings of Tiwaz. It is the rune that gives you strong will, courage and determination. In return it will ask you to bear all the responsibility for your choice. Tiwaz will also help you in sports and combat and will heal your wounds.

Every rune in my runic series has a symbolic tree, I choose the Linden as a symbol for Tiwaz .
