Week 23 of My Rune Mini Course- Ethel

Hello Traveller,

The runic spirit to focus on this week is Ethel.


At the base level, the runic spirit Ethel represents everything your ancestors passed on to you. This could include:

  • Money
  • Your property
  • Your faith
  • Keepsakes

You might say that Ethel is the Feoh of the past generations. Your ancestors worked hard to amass property and wealth, so you could build on their foundations. They did this in faith you’d do the same for the generations that come after you.

Ethically done, this would mean no person on this earth would ever know what it was like to be starving or homeless.

Depending on the surrounding runes and the question, Ethel could mean the following in a rune cast:

  • Something given to you by an ancestor can help your situation right now.
  • Your ancestors have some advice for you.
  • One of your ancestors is the cause of your current plight.
