Rune Series: Kaunan

Rune Series 6/24
First Row (Aett): Kaunan
Meaning: 'Torch'
Associated English letter: K

Its real translation is uncertain, but Kaunan or Kenaz may be the rune that best represents the search for knowledge. Fire is intellect, a quest for discovering obscure truths.
It is related to personal transformation, self-mastery and intuition, a tool we all posess that can aid us if we learn to use it. Illumination is enlightenment, the supreme knowledge found deep within each and every one of us. Kaunan is the torch that lights our path.

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.
