    My runes are slightly different then yours, but have generally the same meanings and names... they are still refered to as elder futhark, but simple difference... like fehu is Feoh, and Manaz is Manu.... any ideas on why? Why the heck (can we say hell on the posts?) are my runes so the same but so different

    The names you've mentioned are from the Anglo-Saxon Futhark (or some variation thereof), rather than the Germanic (Elder) Futhark. Many authors (especially those that aren't particularly well researched, or are mostly regurgitating the poor research of others) often make the mistake of 'mixing & matching' the names of the runes (not to be confused with the same runic symbol in different Futharks/Futhorcs having different names because of linguistic differences).

    Interesting.. thank you Rick... I find that to be both surprising and a bit of a shame as the author of my book claims that the runes ARE elder futhark, the germanic pagan runes... what a shame indeed. Oh well. What are these other five anglo-saxon runes mucgwyrt mentions?

    The Anglo-Saxon has 29-33 runes in it (again, sorta depends which 'language' you're using... both are historically valid)... an excellent source for these is Nigel Pennick'c Rune Magic, which I believe is still in print & available from amazon.com or B&N.com, or maybe even your local bookstore.

    I think that many of his works are "must-have's" if one is a serious student of runes. I think many of his works aren't for everyone, & are ONLY for serious students of runes. I think that since he has a fistful of doctorates in the areas that he writes about, & has done a decade worth of field research in various locations throughout Europe, he probably knows whereof he speaks.

    I have a question i got my first rune set recently and have been doing readings their a lot of fun but i noticed something weird with the spread i like most it has a spot for what the person lacks and when i try reading for myself no matter what specific issue it is i almost always get hagal in this spot i know it represents change and even disaster but i don't get it does it mean im stuck in a rut or my life dosent have enough disaster?? cuz my life changed a lot in the past few months no disasters but im happy without disaster thank you!!

    zos, check out the discussion on the meanings of Hagalaz elsewhere in this are of the board, you'll probably get some insights.
