I found a site which provides some of the basic info that might assist our growing understanding ... As a beginner, I sometimes feel there is a need to see some of the history / mythology / saga on the runes so here is a link ...



Runes of the Havamal


I especially liked it as it had a "magic spell" linkage that appealed to my Wiccan leanings, so I chose this for the post but there are some others on the site which might appeal to others more strongly.

Ah, an interesting breakdown, though reading the entire Havamal is highly recommended. It really stands as a whole.

I've seen that site before. Semi-flattered that they chose to make it look like Rune Secrets. FYI I don't know who the guy is ;)

Yeah I liked the font envy too! Perhaps you need a section here with those elements of runic lore that would provide background etc for beginners? That way we could have a whole resource in one ....
Thank you for posting this. This will help me learn.

Reading a couple different translations of the Havamal is a very rewarding investment of your time. It goes over much more wisdom than the runes that are mentioned, as well. My favourite of the Eddas.
