The Vegvísir

The Vegvísir is an Icelandic charm that helps the bearer find their way through rough and heavy weather. Pronounced “VEGG-vee-seer” it means the “wayfinder”, or That Which Shows The Way. For sailors who challenge the wind and sea, the Vegvísir’s meaning is profound:

“If this sign is carried, one will never lose one’s way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known.”

And experienced sailors uniquely understand the many parallels of a voyage under sail and life’s journey, including personal growth and discovery. In that regard, below is an interpretation of the Vegvísir’s many symbols.
