Rune Interpretations

So here are my very basic interpretations for each rune. Obviously each of these can be gone into in more depth but to get started these will suffice and over time you will begin to interpret the runes in your own way. I have split them up into their families or Aetts and one thing to remember is green is the right way up and red is the reversed interpretation.

Freyja's Aett


Fehu - Livestock/Wealth


A sign of good wealth and health to come along with good fortune, don’t waste it however on those that will abuse it.


Poverty and health problems will come along with a run of bad luck. Be charitable and show compassion.

Good Physical and Mental health, and in a man virility and in a woman fertility. You have the strength to fulfill your dreams but you must use your strength to stay on track. Master your own ego to succeed.
