WHAT ANSUR MEANS
AnsuR (pronounced as the English word Answer) is named after Norse Runes, used for more than 1000 years in northern Europe until the Latin alphabet took over. The Elder Futhark runes were the first ones, probably around since 100 AD, and the latest versions were in use in Scandinavia until the 20th Century.
All runes have fairly complex meanings, including spiritual and magic meanings. The rune A is called ansuR. It is the rune of the Gods, and implies inspiration, communication, wisdom, ideas and good advice. It is related to the provision of answers and wisdom from the Gods. AnsuR is thus an overall representation of inspiration, innovation and ideas.
