Norse protection symbol called Vegvísir, which has a deep meaning. The Icelandic word literally means ‘guidepost’ or ‘direction sign’. In modern popular culture the Vegvísir is often called Runic Compass or See the Way. This symbol is from the Icelandic grimoire called Galdrabók (‘magic book’). Vegvísir was drawn on one’s forehead with blood to prevent a person from getting lost.
