The Vegvisir symbol means “That Which Shows the Way.” It is an Icelandic magical stave. This symbol is used by many for protection against getting lost (particularly at sea) – The symbol comes down to us from the Icelandic Huld Manuscript which was compiled in the 1840s from older manuscripts (now lost). The exact age of the Vegvisir is therefore unknown.
The Vegvisir is not only protection against being unable to find one’s way in the physical world. For many people, the Vegvisir / Viking Compass represents staying on course in our spiritual voyage, and in finding our way through all the ups, downs, twists, and turns our lives can take.
