    NEED...

    Needs have been unrecognized or unfulfilled. The path to healing and fulfillment lies in answering these fundamental needs. A course of action must be chosen. Desire and need can be a source of strength.
    [ inverted meaning ]
    Beware temptation. Not all needs must be fulfilled. Do not take the path of least resistance.

    PERTHRO

    ~~~~~~~~~~

    Mystery

    Perthro represents that which we cannot fully know. Perthro, which signifies a cup, must be consumed to understand what it contains. Fate is at work here, and answers can only come with time.

    INGWAZ
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The Earth
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Ingwaz represents both the home and the greater world: Our oneness with the universe. Common sense is indicated here, as well as social consciousness. Love, caring, human warmth. A time of rest, or period of time spent at home. Reflect on the relationship of your personal existence to the world at large. Are there larger issues at play?

    ALGIZ
    ~~~~~~~~

    Protection
    ~~~~~~~~

    The symbol of Algiz was frequently inscribed on shields to symbolize protection. Algiz symbolizes defense of all that is sacred to you. Remember true nature. Algiz symbolizes a connection to the divine, but also the separation of man from divinity.

    HAGALAZ
    ~~~~~~~~

    Hail
    The wrath of the elements and the power of fundamental forces of nature overwhelm all else. A confusion of elements and a display of temper and wrath. A dispute that gives way to calm. A test of will. Crisis.

    inguz







    Phonetic equivalent: ng

    DIVINATORY MEANINGS: work, productivity, bounty,

    groundedness, balance, connection with the land

    MAGICAL USES: fertility, farming, growth, general health, balance

    ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Freyr / Ing, Nerthus, Thor, the Vanir

    ANALYSIS: Ing is a Danish / Anglo-Saxon name for Freyr, the God of agriculture and fertility.

    Agriculture represents one of the first attempts by mankind to control the environment, and the fertility of

    crops, animals and people has always been the primary concern and religious focus of most Pagan

    agrarian societies. From the earliest Sumerian accounts to modern-day British folk custom, people

    throughout history have sought to ensure the success of their crops.

    The vast majority of people in Western society have lost all contact and connection with the land and

    the process of growing things. The spiritual consequences of this segregation from the earth have been

    disastrous, since most people find it difficult to relate to deity in a purely man-made environment. The

    shape of this rune can be likened to that of a field, but its real significance may lie in its balance,

    representing the harmonious relationship between ourselves and the four elements / four directions.

    Inguz reminds us of that ancient connection between the Gods and the land, and re-links (the real

    meaning of the 'religion') us with our spiritual natures through the realm of the physical. It is quite literally

    a grounding rune, and by reintroducing us to the earth, it reconnects our bodies, our minds and our spirits.

    Colour :
    White/Silver
    Tree:
    Juniper
    Herb:

    Success, goals achieved, honor. The life-force, health.
    A time when power will be available to you for positive changes in

    Thurisaz

    : giant

    Phonetic equivalent: th (as in 'thing')

    DIVINATORY MEANINGS: hardship, painful event, discipline, knowledge, introspection, focus
    MAGICAL USES: aid in study and meditation, self-discipline, clearing out a bad situation
    ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: the Frost Giants, Loki
    ANALYSIS: Thurisaz is the first of the 'obstacle' runes. These obstacles are not necessarily
    destructive things, but are placed in our path to strengthen and teach us. After all, you can't have a
    mythic hero without dragons to slay or giants to fight!
    The lesson of this rune is 'to learn you must suffer', meaning not only literal suffering, but also in the
    biblical sense of 'allowing' - allowing one's destiny to unfold as it should, and allowing one's self to

    gebo
    : gift

    Phonetic equivalent: g (as in 'girl')
    DIVINATORY MEANINGS: gift, offering, relationship, love, marriage, partnership, generosity, unexpected good fortune
    MAGICAL USES: to find or strengthen a relationship, for fertility, to mark a gift or offering, to bring luck.
    ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Sigurd & Brunhild; Aesir & Vanir treaty

    ANALYSIS: Gebo is a rune of connection, particularly the connections between people. Up until now, our journey has been a solitary one. This rune represents those places where our path intersects with others, and allows us to begin to form conscious relationships. Such relationships are strengthened and sanctified by the exchange of gifts.

    The use of the gift as a symbol of an oath or a bond is an ancient one. When a lord wanted to ensure the loyalty of one of his subjects, he would give that person a gift. The gift would create a debt on the part of the person receiving it, and this debt would ensure his readiness to serve his lord. Similarly, a gift given between lovers, especially that of the ring symbolizes the bond between them.

    Originally, only the man gave the ring in a marriage for much the same reason as the lord giving gifts to his vassals, but today the arrangement is usually more equitable. Gifts or offerings given to the Gods often carry the same meaning, representing the giver's love for or loyalty to their Gods. The giving of a gift implies the acceptance of a debt with the understanding that the debt will not be repaid. It is this imbalance that forms the bond.

    3.2.1 The First Aett

    fehu: cattle
    Phonetic equivalent: f

    DIVINATORY MEANINGS: prosperity, money, wealth, concern with physical and
    financial needs, goals, promotion, self-esteem, centeredness, karma

    MAGICAL USES: for money, business, promotion, finding a job, achieving a goal, starting new enterprises.
    ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Freyr, Brisingamen, Gullveig, Dwarfs, Sigurd & the Otter's Gold.
    ANALYSIS: Fehu is both the day-to-day reality of our lives and the catalyst that awakens us to what lies beyond. It is whatever we think we are which frequently bears no resemblance to what we will eventually find. It is also our home, for after all our wanderings we will need to attend to our physical needs and ground ourselves in the simple pleasures of home, family, and good work. Oz might be a fun place to visit, but after a while all you really want to do is go back to Kansas.

    Fehu reminds us that we must be secure in our physical situation before embarking upon any spiritual journey. We all must begin with the mundane reality of our lives, although many people never get beyond this. In many ways, we have become as domesticated as the cattle, living our day-to-day existence without wanting or even being aware of anything more being possible. The first step in breaking away from this situation is to catch a glimpse of what is possible, without dwelling on what security we may lose to attain it.

    (which version do you guys prefer? The big definitions like off of the old threads here? Or the ones with the Tarot links to the Rune or the ones like the one in this post? Let me know!)
