Bind-Rune Basics
Bind-Runes are a subject that’s been covered in a few rune-books, but most have not covered it well. It seems that somewhere in the process of creating interesting activities for people to replicate, most rune authors seem to lose the aim and intent of bind-runes somewhere along the wooded path.
A bind-rune is simply a combination of runes that are stuck together or overlapped in some way – the term binding referring actually to weaving, as in the old Nordic term Nalbinding, or needle-knitting.

Introducing The Aetts

For more information about Runes such as how to read them, type Runes into Coven Life’s “Search. Box.” I would like to thank Lady Abyss again for teaching is about runes. I am not that familiar with reading times so I get to learn with you.

Witches Of The Craft®

Introducing The Aetts

In the Elder Futhark, in other words the 24-plus-one runic set with which we are concerned here, there
are three divisions. These divisions contain eight runes each, the blank or 25th rune being a separate
item. This is similar to the Greek division of the alphabet into three ogdoads (groups of eight), said to
reflect the three parts of the universe. Each of these sets has its own name, and is called an aett, an
Icelandic word, with many meanings included in which are things connected with place, lineage and
eight directions.

It is interesting to note that the Scottish word airt is very similar, as is the Irish word aird meaning an
eighth of the horizon, and used as a means of direction. The number eight is said to have been a very
powerful number to the Vikings and each set of eight runes forms its…

Introduction to the Runes

Witches Of The Craft®

Introduction to the Runes

Runes originate in the Viking period, in the time of Odin, the chief god of Norse mythology, a time
when longboats sailed from the fjords of Scandinavia on military missions. It is part of Viking legend
that Odin’s horse, Sleipnir, had runic symbols engraved upon its teeth. Maybe for this reason, the 19th
rune is called Ehwaz, the horse.

Fortunately runes and runic symbols did not die with the Vikings. Thanks to television and film, many
people who would otherwise know nothing of the Vikings are aware of them, their gods and their
lifestyle, but relatively few also know that the lore of the Vikings continues well into our modern-day
lives through the use of the runes.

Every rune symbolises not only an alphabetical letter, but a deeper meaning, an energy. It is our aim
to show the relevance of the wisdom of the runes even…

Consulting The Runes

Witches Of The Craft®

Consulting The Runes

The runes can be consulted in many ways, principally, however, by casting them. It is said, as we
have already briefly mentioned, that they can also be used for protection, in matters of health and
finance, and we will discuss these suggestions briefly before moving on to the most common usage of
runes. The lettering used for such matters will be discussed as we progress through the alphabetical
system.

Protection
Viking legend suggests that runes were buried around items needing protection from wandering tribes
likely to rape and pillage, as well as being used for the protection of women and children whilst the
Vikings were away.

I have heard of people leaving runes to care for their property whilst going on holiday – with some
success. Some have hewn runic symbols above their front door for protection, whilst others have even
used runic symbolism to protect their…
