PostSubject: Runic Numerology   Tue Jan 01, 2008 6:48 am

This is the system I use for runic numerology - there are others, but this one sits better with me Smile

There are two basic types of numerology used in the runes. The first is the total number of runes in a sequence. For example the word ‘money’ has five letters and as five is used to denote general satisfaction and success, this is perfect. Runes can be combined to reduce the number to a more suitable one where required, and where a rune sequence needed additional runes for the effect required, symbols such as Thor’s Hammer (an upside-down T), the Sunwheel or the Shieldknot would be added to make up the difference.

The second type is a repeated rune. This is seen very clearly in a Troll Rune sequence, where three Thurisaz runes are used to activate the sequence, followed by the actual curse runes to make up a total appropriate to the effect required. In this way both forms of numerology are used together to complete an inscription.

One. A single rune is used to represent the basic power of that rune, or as a shorthand form of the runes’ name

Two. Used to bind the runes to your service

Three. To strengthen, empower, augment and activate a sequence. Also used as a minor invocation to the Gods

Four. To cause irritation, annoyance, distress and discomfort

Five. For general satisfaction and success

Six. That which is unwelcome or causes hostility

Seven. Sexual or relationship matters

Eight. Completion and strength. Also a major invocation to the Gods

Nine. Not commonly used, nine is an enhanced version of an eight-rune sequence. Ultimate completion and power.

This is based on the work of Bernard King, author of The Elements of the Runes

Fascinating post! Thank you. Smile

Some of the above appear to be for more than divination purposes. Are they also used in spellcasting and if so, how?

Oh, this is for magic Very Happy I generally make a charm or amulet combining a number of runes into one image - this is generally known as a bindrune. I've a page about them on my old website - http://wyrdwebs.bravehost.com/bindrune.html

I'll have to get around to rewriting the site one of these days, it's been up since the early days of me being heathen.

When I am feeling a bit more human (hangover!) I will read this through fully!

I think I should renounce being the Rune Reader....someone is much more capable than I!! lol

Hows my reading coming by the way Grim? Wink

Oh no, you can continue reading! I'm so rusty you wouldn't believe it Razz Want a charm, no worries but a reading? I'm really struggling. You use them quite differently when you're working magic instead of divination. Basically, you are telling them what they have to do, not the other way round! Very Happy

I'm sure I'll get back into it, but you are the better rune reader now.

Has anyone ever used runes in a magical context? Besides me? Razz

I apologise to lower the tone of the conversation, but is it just me or do some of the beard runes look like pac-man characters? Smile

Grim, I use them lots in magic!! Myself and LunarCraft (Forum Mother) design, carve and charge candles to be sold in her shop (The Willow Tree). Ones for attracting money, ones for increasing passion....it's amazing how they work actually, they're very complicated!! But I don't do much else apart from for protective reasons, etc.

Logmadr...

P.s. Grimnir, what does your name mean?!

You'll have to send me pics of some of the runic work you do Smile I'm always interested!

Yes, those beard runes do look like pac-man characters Razz but that may be because I did them quick in Paint...

My online name, Grimnir. It means Hooded One or Masked One and is one of the many names of Odhinn. It is the name he used in the Grimnismál, one of the Poetic Eddas.

I think runes are really cool but I obviously havent done much of the hard work on them, I think it would be great if Grimnir could do a runes for beginners and then slowly build it up so people like me can understand what these posts really are talking about :p xxx

Runes do tend to make more sense when you can actually read them and differentiate them. Obviously. I mean, it's like letters: once you learn the name of them the sounds come easily, and once you learn the names and shapes of Runes, the meanings just...flow Smile

P.s. Grimnir, I thought you;d like to know what Logmadr meant: it means "Man of the Law". I thought it was appropriate because my surname is Justice! lol

Don't worry how long you use it for, I don't need it anymore, but I need it back when you're finished: means a lot to me, obviously, even if it was a birthday present in December....and my birthday is in the beginning of June!!

Runes for beginners? Well, I guess I could always direct you to this rather nifty site... http://wyrdwebs.bravehost.com/runes.html

It's my old rune site, and has quite a lot from divination to making your own set.
