So I’m gonna be putting some off hand ideas I have had of runes and connecting them. I’m seeking a deeper and renewed initiation into the runes due to a part of my Odin Pathworking.
Fehu F rune
Fehu is a rune of wealth nourishment and strength. Its strength aspect lies on the results of its primary correspondences. Fehu literally means cattle which can be seen as property,possession,wealth or power. The first primordial cow Audumla who nourished Ymir and formed the plane of existence from the nothingness is associated with this rune. Connecting of Fehu with love magick can be drawn however that’s not the primary purpose so the rune and its effect have to be ‘tinkered’ for that particular affect. Fehu is also the rune of Frejya and thus is connected with fertility,magick and passion. Fehu is called the rune of nourishment as it can affect the ability of a individual to cook better which is a affect that can be confirmed by me although I would seek other gnosis on that. Invoking Fehu is the same as doing it with any other rune which is the use of Galdr and then making a physical vessel of the rune temporarily or permanently. Fehu is seen also as the creation rune and thus also connects to magick due to the very nature of magick being to create or manifest. Fehu can have side effects however its essence is very strong and can be used for wards and protection spells. Fehu reversed can mean loss of property and wealth and is used as a source of power along with a upright fehu rune in ritual for destroying a person(personal gnosis, appreciate having other ideas)
The rune thurisaz and Fehu are connected intimately in my study as Thurisaz refers to struggle, obstacles and all in all a rougher way and fehu represents wealth and power. A proper accumulation of wealth cannot be successfully gained from nothingness and struggle in that regard is an important part of that.
The old poem also connects the runes with Odin and Thor and the need for struggle:
From Gautrek’s Saga
Odin said: “I grant him an abundance of possession.”
Thor said: "I impose on him a state of dissatisfaction with all that he possesses."
