The Wndsn Legend
Science and mythology of the Norseman.
The "Vegvisir" magical stave, according to the Huld manuscript  is to guide people through rough weather. Icelandic magical staves (sigils) are symbols called Galdrastafur in Icelandic, and are credited with magical effect preserved in various grimoires dating from the 17th century and later.
The word "Vegvisir" is derived from two Icelandic words: veg and vísir. "Vegur" means road or path, and "Visir" stands for the word Guide. The instruction given to this symbol has been translated as:
"If this sign is carried, one will never lose one's way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known or in unfamiliar surrounds."
