Pathwalking with the Rune : http://www.northernshamanism.org/pathwalking-with-runes.html
This rune can open or provide a barrier for the dark forces, the realms of the death too. It makes us face our weakness, our failures and our sorrows. It makes us ask ourselves about what would we do if our death is near now. This is a good rune for trials and attack. This is a rune of time and change. It rules the secrets and the hidden things and it is also connected with the karmic energies. It is evolution of the magical ideas. The rune Perth can be used when you make investments or merchandising and also when you try to find something that you have lost.
In its meaning “fate, destiny” Perth directs the runic forses into cause – consequence. Perth helps you to receive intuitive guidance about financial operations. This is a rune of mystery, chance, merchandise, science and technologies.
Divination : Unknown result, mystery, gambling, weird things. To succeed you must use what is modern. Perth leads to spiritual revelation of a secret. This rune is connected with pregnancy and giving birth. It is also connected with the average and sensual sexual gelight.
To interpret Perth you should enguage the mystic and the providence.
Interpretation : there is always choice for you about everything. Noone and nothing can upset you unless you choose so. You should not allow your truth to be compromised if you want to do what you choose to do. Clearly state your right to choose. The biggest danger for you is not to make the choice and to let the things be. Do shape your future.
Reversed meaning : a possible failure. What seems clear hides deeper aspects and meanings. Do not hurry, do not give up. Believe only your loved ones. Do not take anything for granted. There may be a hidden depth in others` statements.
The development of the situation will not be what you expect or want to. You should temporarily give up your experiments with the occult forces.
This rune has a connection with Phoenix bird and with Mimir`s well, too. It is possible a deep secret of yours to come up to the surface and you may be disappointed or surprised by a person you trusted in.
Unexpected gain or surprise. In combination with Gebo or Hagalaz or Thurisaz it means financial gain. If you receive a gift , do ask yourself if there are hidden motives for it. Emotionally speaking, this is a sign for amazing sexual compatibility. In combination with Kano or Uruz Perth is a sign for a relationship based on sex only.
When Perth is surrounded by negative runes this can mean a rare, unknown and difficult to cure illness.
The rune Perth can be used to help finding Mimir`s well and to connect with the Norns. According to the Norse myths Mimmir is a giant who keeps the well of knowledge and wisdom and drinks of it and drinking the water from this well he has all wisdom. Odin went into the land of the giants to meet Mimir. At the shore of the lake they met and Odin asked Mimir for permission to take one sip from this well. Mimir agreed but asked for one of Odin`s eyes in return. With his knife Odin took off one of his eyes and the eye fell into the well, then Odin drank of the water and gained wisdom. The eye stayed into the well…seeing …nothing and…seeing everything.
Later Mimir`s head was cut by the Aesir gods and Mimir died. Mimir knew many secrets and was the wisest one. Odin decided to give the life back to Mimir`s head. Odin took the head of the giant, wrapped it with herbs and cast spells on it. Soon the head was alive again and could speak.
The rune is drawn with the middle and index finger together starting from top to base.
There is a large portion of our unmanifest future that rests on an element of chance. This awareness must be incorporated into the lore of Perthro and divination is a way to discern the parameters of that element of chance. Divination through casting of lots using dice or runes provides conscious indicators of unconscious ‘lay’ or pattern of cause and effect as it pertains to any specific future happening.
Of all the runes, this one is the most mysterious, perhaps next to Eihwaz before it, because Perthro deals with the mysteries within the runes themselves and the birth of the universe. On one hand this allows you to intuit original knowledge about the runes that may have been suppressed, destroyed or incompletely passed on over the centuries. On the other hand, the ‘how to’ techniques are less defined than with other runes, for we are dealing with fundamental mysteries of the universe. Orlog plays out as the consequences of the cosmic and primal laws themselves unfold from beginning of the universe until the end. All patterns are interdependent and interwoven, throughout all existence…
