Description:
Thor, the Thunder god.  Male core fertility.  Thurisaz has to do with strife, conflict, combat, defense, and aggression.  Reacting forcefully, as if threatened.  Instinctual will, eroticism, a catalyst for change.  A purging flood, a cleansing fire, catharsis.

This rune suggests that now may not be the best time to make any hasty decisions.  Perhaps time should be set aside to reflect.
