Week 10 of My Rune Mini Course- Nyd

Hello Traveller,

The rune to consider this week is Nyd. Like the prior rune, Nyd focuses on harsh times. It’s literal translation is ‘need’.

Need is the lack of something necessary to you at any given time. It can be realised on the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. read more

Week 8 of My Rune Mini Course- Wynn

Hello Traveller

Welcome to week 8 of my rune mini course- Wynn

This week’s rune is Wynn.

Wynn is another runic spirit left out of all the rune poems, save the Anglo Saxon one.

Week 7 of My Rune Mini Course- Gifu

Hello Traveller,

This week’s runic spirit is Gifu.

The only source for the foundational meaning of this rune is the Anglo Saxon rune poem.

It tells us that Gifu brings recognition and fame that makes one feel worthy. read more

Weekof 6 Of My Rune Mini Course- Ken

Hello Traveller,

This week’s runic spirit is Ken.

Week 5 of My Rune Mini Course- Rad

Hello Traveller,

This week’s runic spirit is Rad.

This runic spirit’s name means ‘ride’. As time went on, many associations were given to this spirit. However since this course is merely an introduction to each runic spirit, I’ll focus on the meaning only. read more

Week 4 of My Rune Mini Course- Ansur

Hello Traveller,

This week’s runic spirit is Ansur. Its name means ‘mouth’ and is used both when speaking about a fleshy mouth and the mouth of a river (the lower point in a river in which its current flows into the sea). In both instances the emphasis is on what comes out of the mouth rather than what goes in. read more

Week 3 of My Rune Mini Course- Thorn

Hello Traveller,


This week’s rune is Thorn. Because of its great power and desructive potential, Thorn is one of the runic spirits that requires you to understand its many aspects before it will ally with you. read more

Week 2 of My Rune Mini Course- Ur

Hello traveller,

The rune for this week is Ur.

To begin to understand the powerful spirit of this rune and what it can mean in a casting, you must get a feel for the powerful, untameable beast (sadly, now extinct) that it was named after, the aurochs. read more

Week One of My Mini Rune Course- Feoh

When I first set out to read the runes, I attempted to tackle it in the same manner I learned Tarot.

I learned a key word and concept for each rune and then set out to do readings.
