Ive been meditating on Fehu alot lately. And Ive definitely gotten the whole rebirth and motivation vibe.in the form of feeling like I should always be UP AND DOING SOMETHING as well as i'm getting more looks from the ladies that even others have noticed (an unintentional side effect mind you)

 Neither of these is a bad thing mind you, except I now find myself in the position of attempting rebirth while shackled in an imprisoning relationship and position in life. Its a seriously frustrating moment in life yet i am thankful for the lesson/opportunity and also thankful that Fehu is being as patient as it is at the moment.

 I would propose for beginners a sort of "side effects may include" list of experiences to clue people in to what is a normal effect on their lives and what is not.

I very much like the idea of a list of possible examples but Im not certain 'side effects' is the right word though- they ARE the effects.  They may have been unforeseen or unintended, unknown to the user, but they are most CERTAINLY the effect the rune intends.

The term side effects is 'spin' from the drug companies- when you want to sell a medication for a certain illness you list the 'desired' effects as the intent and the undesirable effects as side effects- it implies the effects were not the intended effects though again they ARE the effects. 

Hopefully this doesnt come across as nitpicking or critical- the idea is sound and VERY useful- the effects any rune can have are varied and examples are an excellent idea- the terminology is my issue: Though I understand this sort of clever trickery on the part of the drug industry Im not keen on applying the same terminology to runes :)

@ Jason. I worked in Pharmacy for thirteen years. The vocabulary sticks after a while. Regardless of what its titled the concept seems sound. You DO raise an interesting point though and I had been meaning to ask around about it,,,*runs to general forum*

yeah sorry :)  I didnt mean to sound all 'down' on the idea though I do have issue with a lot of 'Big Pharma' for obvious reasons lol.

I like the concept for sure.

  In my case I have been giving myself runes for tattoos over the last two years and I select them for 'obvious' reasons and then I notice something new in my life and sure enough when I re-read Tyriel I note that he mentions things that seem to follow that rune.   Where as the other sources/authors all seem to follow a rather formulaic approach (If Rune 'a' then effect 'b') Tyriels book is designed to identify the modern manifestation of that rune- making a shortlist of what those may in fact entail seems very much a boon to people jut starting
