Algiz is the rune that appears as if a foot of a bird, to be more specific Algiz might just be the rune that represents the foot of a crow. The Valkyries and Heimdall are deities in connection with Algiz.
Algiz itself has a fortnight consisting from the 28th of January to the 12th of February and rules over the hour of 2:30 to 3:30.

The very meaning of Algiz is healing and protection. While this rune is in association of crows Algiz is connected by symbolism to elk. Algiz is associated with multiple plants, the yew tree, lime tree and semi-aquatic plants (such as reeds, rushes, eelgrass and sedge). As mentioned before, Algiz appears as if the foot of a crow but can be seen as an outstretched hand or the outstretching branches of a tree.

When Algiz appears upright in a reading it tells of success, healing of illness and that dreams and desires should be held onto. Looking after yourself should be first as it is said that looking after others won’t be possible if looking after oneself is done. However, selfishness is not what the rune promotes but rather making time for yourself.

Inverted meaning of Algiz it is further reinforcing its messages when upright, but one’s health should have a special eye out as problems with health is likely sometime soon. Slowing down and allowing time to rest to gain strength is what the inverted Algiz tells in a reading.
