Runes of Odin ( how to write the Runes)

This post is going to be very practical so I will not give links nor tell stories.  I am going to introduce all Runes I work with and explain how the Runes are to be correctly written. The names of the Runes I use can differ by comparison with other sources because each Rune has more than one spelling of its name. Easy 🙂 the differences are not so big so you can reckognise it without problems . I am sorry for my inability to post pictures here. This is due to thechnical problems I have but I promise this would not affect the information I am about to give.

Each Rune has a number in the Runic alphabet, I will start with Fehu…the name Futhark is actually something like ABC for the Runes..these are the few initial letters or runes in the Runic alphabet.

Remember one thing – regard  each rune as  a tree with branches/see exclusions below/, start writing it and first make the trunk and then the branches coming out of the tree.

  1. Fehu – start with the trunk from bottom to top and then the branches upwards, the lower line first and then the upper line , like branches upwards to the sky
  2. Uruz – Start from the bottom left and move upwards and then to the bottom right
  3. Thurisaz – this rune should be started with the vertical line from the top to the bottom and then the “thorn” from bottom to top
  4. Ansuz – the vertical line from bottom to top and the wings down to the right
  5. Raido – from bottom to top and then down to the right without stopping till the rune is written
  6. Kauno – from top to bottom
  7. Gebo – from top to the bottom each line and you write X
  8. Wunjo – from bottom to top and then to the right and down
  9. Hagalaz – all lines from top to bottom, start with the vertical lines first and then draw the tilted line
  10. Nauthiz – from top to bottom, first the vertical one and then cross with the other one, both lines start from top down
  11. Isa – from top to bottom
  12. Jera – from top to bottom both lines
  13. Eihwaz – from bottom to top is written for offensive defence and from top to bottom means general defence
  14. Perth – from top to the bottom
  15. Algiz – vertical line first from bottom to top and then the wings from left to the right
  16. Sowilo – from top to bottom
  17. Tiwaz – vertical line first from bottom to top and then the arrow from left to the right
  18. Berkana – from bottom to top and then down
  19. Ehwaz – from bottom left to bottom right like M
  20. Mannaz – left vertical line first from bottom to top and then the little one down, then cross with the right little line and continue to the bottom right
  21. Laguz – from bottom to top and then to the right with the little line
  22. Ing – write two crossing each other <> start from bottom left >, the second < is started from top to bottom
  23. Dagaz – start from bottom left and continue by your choice
  24. Othila – start from bottom left/ this is the end of the common Rune set, I will continue with some Runes I know and work with

Ear – the vertical line from bottom to top and then the wings from right to left

Ac – the vertical line first from bottom to top and then to the right, the second line to the left towards the vertical trunk

Ior – the vertical line first from bottom to top and then X from top to bottom

Yr – first write the central vertical line from top to bottom, then the horizontal line /if you want to write it/and then write like I described the writing of Uruz

Os – the vertical line from bottom to top and then to the right , then the second line from right to left

Cweorth – from bottom left

Stan – from bottom right to the bottom left

Chalc – first write the “cup” and then the vertical central line from top to bottom

Gar – first write the “diamond” from bottom to top and then the X over the ‘diamond”from top to bottom

 

In the next post I will share a ritual with you. December draws nearer and this ritual is connected with the Norns or Fates that are celebrated in December .  The destiny of each soul is written/weaved by the threads and even Gods have destiny. The Past is Urd, the Present is Verdandi and the Future is Skuld, all Sisters, all Maidens and the three of them are all time that is No Time, that is between the worlds. All Gods gather there in no time  by the Urd well to talk and meet the Fates.  Runes and Norns have a close connection. We can ask the Norns to weave the threads of our destiny so that our path becomes full of what our hearts desire . The ritual is also a way to consecrete your new Rune set, you decide 🙂

 

Until we merry meet again
