It’s been a while since I’ve posted about Runes. I’m so in love with this wooden set I got a bit ago. So I thought I’d pull one out and just start writing. So here’s Laguz.
This is a powerful rune, it represents “Thurses” which means Giants. It can mean there is something huge going on in your life.
Continuing with the Elder Futhark, this little rune made its way out of the bag today. As with all runes, though tiny it may be its meaning is anything but. This one deals with fate and the unknown.
Algiz (Elhaz) represents the letter Z, in a literal sense it means “elk.” It is also known to represent the Valkyrie, that’s pretty cool!
Nauthiz (Naudiz) is the letter N (source). It literally translates to “not this.” Interesting. Is it trying to tell me I’m headed in the wrong direction?
What could that mean? Ansuz represents Odin. That’s good, I guess! It means divine inspiration, well that’s definitely good.
Odal (or Othala) originated in the Elder Futhark, it is not contained in the Younger Futhark. It represents the “O” sound. It’s most strongly associated with inheritance, some of the laws it represented are still in place in Scandinavia today.
Runes are an ancient Germanic alphabet. Rune actually means mystery, secret or whisper! They date back to 100 B.C.E.
