Aegishjalmur is an ancient protective talisman of the Norse —but the true nature of its magic has many interpretations. In icelandic sagas it can be found to confer power and dominance in conflict. Aegishalmur instill fear in one’s enemies and to conquer fear in one’s own mind. Aegishjalmur contains two numerical patterns, 3 and 8, that were sacred to the Northern tradition. And multiples like 24, the number of runes in the elder futhark, or runic alphabet. But its most prominent feature is the rune Elhaz. Elhaz can be used by itself for protection of a person, place or thing. It can create a sacred space or scatter negative energy, people or groups. Elhaz protects, links us to guardianship, a sovereign right to exist, for our time here. The rune is shaped like someone with outstretched hands to the heavens. In the Aegishjalmur, Elhaz is also contained 8 times not only at the ends of each spoke, but 8 times hidden in the spokes themselves. Truly a defense in depth, in other ways as well. Comes with bronze colored metal chain.
