This bindrune reads Hurnaz and consists of the runes ᚺ ᚢ ᚱ ᚾ ᚨ ᛉ. This symbol is used to attract or invoke the Wild Spirit of the forest and all associated guardians therein. Hurnaz is a Germanic title for this force, meaning “Horn.” This is a direct translation of the powers represented by the Celtic god Cernunnos. Carve this on any tree near the perimeter of your property that borders the forest; it will invoke good luck and protection from the Forest Gods.
When used in ritual, place a talisman of wood, stone or bone with this symbol carved into it on each cardinal point of the work space. This will create a charged area of focus and intensity for you to carry out your functions in. In this space, you can be assured that no detrimental outside forces are granted access to you or your sacred enclosure. All powers of ill intent will be repelled by the presence of these runes around your work space. This can also be painted on the skin for the same purpose; being especially handy when working alone in the woods. Paint with whatever materials you have available to you. Ideally, use ash, blood, or both to create a usable paint.
