Early this year I began to have "difficulties". At a point when these difficulties started taking on a grave nature, I happened to glance over at some do-dads. I realized their arrangement made them look like a rune. I suddenly recognized it as a rune, although I didn't know it's name or meaning. I looked it up and sure enough it was a rune and it's meaning was dead on to what was happening. I have been seriously studying runes since. I'm just learning the runes' names and meanings,…Continue
Im new to the Runes and driven to learn all I can. I had a stroke a couple years back, and I find that learning new things is extremely more difficult now, but I will not let that stop me.
Im engaged to an Asatru man and he has been teaching me when he can, but not as often as we'd both…Continue
Recently, I was feeling enraged and I had no idea why! The anger was so deep. I found myself being short with everyone- feeling like I was going to snap. I was not at all like myself.
I decided to go into my meditation room and seek advice from my ancestors and from the runes. I started to explain what I was feeling and tears came forth. I had tears from my anger. I asked why I was feeling this way- and what was I so enraged about?
As soon as I put my hand into my rune bag,…Continue
As I wrote in a previous blog, I'm new to learning about the Elder Futhark Runes. I've studied for 7 years ,to the best of my…Continue
I have been self studying the Runes for about 7 years.
For the last 3 years or so I've practiced The Nornic Casting method ,The method written in Edred Thorsson's ,The Well of Wyrd in which the lots are cast on a white cloth. Have also experimented with my own variations. I have mainly practiced on my self .
After my cast I've looked upward or shut my eyes and picked out three Runes and placed them in order
of past /Urdhr-on left hand side , then present…Continue
Lately, I have felt the pressure and pulling of the energies that have been impacting the planet. I have heard here and there that this month particularly will be full of changes and transformative energy will abound.
Inwardly, I have been processing alot of "emotional baggage", the results of a few abusive relationships and have been struggling with my emotions. Anger is quick to flare up, over really insignificant triggers (usually my kids getting into something they know they…Continue
I have not seen this in the literature, but it came to me after writing my last book, and the thought was resurrected while writing the narrative of the murkstaves in this new book, "Questioning the Runes". What I found was that each rune was able to be described in terms of the runes to its immediate right and left. I believe this to be possible with any rune combination.
My chapter would consist of 552 such demonstrations, and I will give an example in this blog post of what…Continue

Light travels at a certain speed, and thus the night sky we see is not as it truly is. The ancient stars are more ancient than we can suppose, and the deeper we look, the farther we are from what is Now.
So it has been with my words, as I express thoughts I had, in words you all could understand. I strove for clarity, above all, to establish the foundations of the rune meanings as I understood them, but only as far as I could express clearly.
Whether or not my…Continue
Being a geek of sorts I have this need to explore things and so I was toying with the idea of the unit circle, a sine wave, the elder futhark, and the nine worlds, plotted together. The X axis, horizontal, is literally the year in our time and the elder futhark plotted in 15 degree increments of 360 degree's. I have…Continue
You made mention of a matter on my profile you wish to disclose with me privately. I find this request a little odd. Please clarify subject matter, so I can evaluate whether this is something I would like to take offline.
First let me say that I'm grateful to finally find an active forum! I'm a relative newbie at this, and have been reading through the usual sources from Thorsson, Oswald, Aswynn, etc...and what I'm really dying to find is the ancient rituals used to create the runes themselves. I can burn straight lines into tree branches all day long, but I'd like to actually be able to properly empower my runes. Getting my hands on some of those old practices would go a long way in giving me some…Continue

The rune that comes to raise awareness and consciousness this week is called Thorn and it actually looks like a…Continue
This week’s rune is called Eh and came out in inverted position. It invites to start a journey towards our essence step by step. Shall we start?
The concept of Consciousness that most strongly resonates with me now is “that which accepts all and judges nothing.” If each one of us is an embodied hologram of that Consciousness, this rune invites us to explore how to experience that concept in human form.
Because this is a rune of earth, it whispers that the path shall be taken…Continue

I just relocated to WA (US) and am looking for independent kindreds and Heathens in the Seattle/Everett area. I've been happily solitary for several years, and yet now I feel a strong urge to make connections with others in a more direct way.
I'd be happy to get to know folks in the area, even just to know who's around here!
All the best,
Welcome to all new members, it is good to see more and more kindred here. Please do not forget to set a profile photo to give color to the members page, but most of all we are real people interacting with each other and it does feel little more personal when we can put a face to the discussions on the forum and blog. Looking forwards to get to know you all. Blessings ~Sigha
