The vegvísir is composed of eight Viking runic staves. It is similar to the Helm of Awe/Aegishjàlmr, but there are some differences between them. The eight runic staves in vegvisir respectively stand for four cardinals (north, south, west and east) and four directions between mandrels (northwest, northeast, southwest and southeast). The eight directions and the central point (which stands for the Midgard) are the basic elements in the composition of vegvísir.

Some people believed that the eight runic staves in vegvísir respectively stand for the eight direction (north, south, west, east, northwest, northeast, southwest, southeast). They and the central point also represent the nine realm in Norse mythology. The central point stands for Midgard, the human world in Norse mythology, as well as the sign posts to the other eight realms and the corresponding protection.

Some other people hold the view that when a nail is placed in the center of Viking compass, the positions of its shadow at certain time of the day indicate the direction, in that way it helped Vikings in voyages and guided them through rough weather. Therefore, a reversed Viking compass might show you the opposite direction. According to Fen Alraun, the orientation of Viking compass does not really matter, because the eight staves in vegvísir do not indicate the exact directions, but correspond to eight protections.
