Ah, Runes. . .

Your Question or Information: Who is She?


Fehu - Increase of wealth and possessions, protection of valuables. Used to send energy on its way, fire in its uncontrolled, primal state.


Gebo - Gifts, partnerships on all realms, sex magick, brilliance, integration of energies.


Ehwaz - Abrupt changes, moving into new home and environment, travel, swift change in situation.

So I'm playing . . .

As you can see below, I just decided to play with the Rune Casting thing so many people on LJ have been using. After reading a bunch of them, I was wondering if this thing had any "bad Runes" in it.

It doesn't. It's fluffy, and I hate fluffy. Especially with Runes. Take the description for Hagalaz (hail), for instance:

Hagall - Slow, steady pace, no disruptions, asking for a hand from fate within a situation you do not control.

Or this one (need):

Neid - Need, desire, fulfilling those needs, love and sex magick, motivation created by distress.

And Isa (ice):

Isa - Cessation of energy, freezing an issue where it stands, cooling relationships, separation, division.

These should read more like this:

Hagall - Hail, destructive force, starvation, chaos, anger.
Neid - Poverty, nakedness, death from starvation and frost.
Isa - Freezing, immobility, ice.

None of this happy-spin garbage.

My guess is that he's using the Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem, which is happier, but I can't abide these three Runes (always in series) being any good.

What I really don't get is the obsession with sex magic here. . . I don't know *any* Runes for that!

So how would I read them?

Yeah, I complain pretty well, I know.

So, if I'm so good, and I can talk the talk, can I walk the walk? Can I interpret these things?

Well, I'll give it a shot:

Original question: Who is She?

Fe - cattle, wealth, posession (of a mobile kind).

Fe indicates that She is a woman of wealth (the kind of wealth will vary) and leisure. She is dependable, and certainly a leader.

Gebo - Gifts, giving

Speaks directly to the previous attribute of wealth. Read together, the poor, weak, and destitute can depend on Her. She excludes nothing in Her generosity, and She is as free with love as She is with Her wealth, and the wealth spoken of in the previous Rune may well be love.

Ehwaz - the horse, movement

She moves through several areas of life. She pays attention to the poor and the rich in an equal manner. She is reliable, strong, and the most important thing to many people.

The whole reading:

She moves through the best circles, and is generous to all. A person who knows Her wants nothing but to posess Her, yet She is selfless and cares little for the way others perceive Her. She is the first to help and the last to withdraw aid. If you aren't on your feet and running after She's touched your life, then you're doing something wrong. She expects nothing in return, but a thank you card never hurts.

So who the Hel is She?

Wouldn't you like to know. . . Wouldn't you like to know. . .
