Uruz is also the rune of energy, however it is not the wild energy of fire, but a stable power of the ground. It symbolizes the primary creative force of Audhumla who emerged together with Ymir at the beginning of the world, she fed him with her own milk and by licking the ice she freed Buri, the forefather of the people. According to the descriptions from the times of Julius Caesar, the young Germans hunted for aurochs to prove that they were worthy to enter the world of men. As the trophy they brought the aurochs’ horns, which were then framed in silver and used for drinking.
