Rune Series: Fehu

Rune Series 1/24
First Row (Aett): Fehu
Meaning: 'Cattle', 'Wealth'
Associated English letter: F

The first Rune begins the cycle. Fehu represents luck, material posessions or wealth, abundance and prosperity. Wealth is important, but it can cause discord among kin. One must use wealth, share it and never hoard it.
Wealth is not only money, but skills, knowledge and nourishment too. Fehu reminds us to be grateful for the many things we already have.
"Every beginning has within it the seeds of its own end."

The Runes of this series belong to the Elder Futhark, one of the oldest alphabets in recorded history. Each Rune has endless interpretations and deep meanings; while their origin and/or intent is lost to history, most interpretations come from the 'Rune Poems', possibly written around the 8th century.
