RUNE Fehu – “Cattle/Wealth”
The first of the Elder Futhark, Fehu indicates prosperity and material
wealth, either won or earned income. It can represent good luck,
abundance and financial success in the near future. It can also
relate to social success. Not everyone chooses to read a rune as
reversed (“merkstave”) if it comes up that way, but
if doing so resonates with you- its reversed meaning may indicate
the loss of personal possessions or income, a dip in self-esteem
or some other kind of struggles. In Tarot, this could be seen as
The Tower card.
KEYWORDS: Abundance, luck, hope, prosperity
WHAT ARE RUNES?
Rune stones are an ancient proto-Germanic tradition dating back
to potentially the 1st century AD. They consist of a runic alphabet
of 24 letters, usually made out of wood or stone that were used
as a method of fortune-telling and protection sigils. The first
completion of the total alphabet was the Elder Futhark runes in
the 5th century AD, that are most often used still today, and then
the Younger Futhark stones were adapted by the Vikings and other
Nordic tribes and continued until Medieval times. They are said
to be based off of Old Latin inscriptions. Runes stones are full
of powerful and magical history, and so were highly venerated and
used with extreme caution. In the Norse cultures and across other
Northern Europeans, it was believed that they held strong divinatory
powers and as such were taken very seriously.
The origin of word “rune” stems from the Germanic word
for “mystery” or “secret”, and similar findings
are present in Old Irish Gaelic, Welsh and Old English, sometimes
also meaning “miracle”. In Lithuanian it can me “to
speak”, and in Finnish it can also mean “poem”.
These days, runes are used as a method of connecting to one’s
higher self, inner guidance and tapping into intuition as a method
of foretelling what the future may hold and offering advice (similar
to Tarot Cards). Read on for our guide to what are the rune meanings
and how to use them for yourself!
