About The Viking Runes
Rune stone meanings, the elder futhark. An ancient Anglo-Saxon alphabet in the time of Odin (old Norse od, meaning ‘spirit’), ( over 2000 years old ) similar in intent and purpose to the Celtic alphabet the Ogham.
No one really knows the origins of the runic alphabet nor their meanings, sometimes called Viking runes the elder futhark is still a mystery. Neither alphabet was ever used as a language as such, rather signposts, protective symbols, a form of communication, gravestone markings names and places, and magic.
Ancient inscriptions were used in spells, manifestation, and marked jars of secret potions to describe ingredients to other soothsayers. Runes were also inscribed on weapons and tools to provide magical protection.
The meaning of the word rune or Runa translates to a secret whisper, the mystery. The translation alone tells us why the rune stone meanings were never recorded, knowledge of runes was passed on by word of mouth. The runes themselves are all we are left with, symbols carved on large rune stones found all over Europe. The last of the runemasters can be traced back to Iceland in the 17 Th century.
The elder futhark has fast become a popular divination tool, thanks to movies such as Harry Potter, Lord Of The Rings, and a string of others. The Germanic Futhark gets its name from its first eight letters, f, u, t, h, a, r, k.
The runes have three sets of eight letters (Freyr’s aett. Heimdall’s aett, Tyr’s aett.) totalling 24, you may have heard of a blank rune called Odin invented in the 1980s. This rune is not traditional, it is one author add-in, and should not be used in the casting of the runes for divination. © Psychic Medium Ian Scott
