The Meaning Behind this Symbol:
Aegishjalmur/Aegishjalmr, The Helm of Awe and Terror
Aegishjalmr (also known as the Helm of Awe and terror) is a rune stave that is known as a Viking symbol of protection.
The word Aegishjalmur is comprised of two different words in Old Norse language: aegis meaning ‘shield’ and hjalmr meaning ‘helm’.
We should clarify something at this point: the ‘helm’ part of Aegishjalmr here, which actually is the root of the word ‘helmet’ in English, does not refer to anything physical or mean a physical helmet – like many others chose to believe later on. It simply means ‘at the forefront’.
In fact, Viking warriors used to draw Aegishjalmr on their foreheads to be protected from their enemies and to instill fear in them.
As one of several Norse protection symbols, Aegishjalmr is mentioned in several sagas regarding the deeds of the Viking heroes including the Völsunga Saga.
Today, the Aegishjalmur is drawn or used in form of tattoos as a protection symbol or a symbol of identification among Asatru believers.
