PostSubject: Ancient Runes Made Easy   Thu Jan 10 2008, 02:25

Hello Everyone!

I'm June, your class helper for my time as a Prefect. Since this class hasn't been active for a while, I figured I should post a new assignment .

This assignment is based upon this article: Ancient Runes Made Easy.

This link no longer works:
link: http://www.emmaempire.net/archives/cms.en.textbooks_runes.html

Please read the article and then proceed to complete the two parts of this assignment.

Part One:

What are runes used for?

How are runes different from, for example, tarot cards, tea cups, and crystal balls that are commonly used in divination? (By 'different', I mean the information that they give).

What does the word 'Rune' mean?

According to mythology, how did humans receive the meanings of the Runes? Please explain the complete process in your own words.

The Old Germanic Runic alphabet is also known as what?


Part Two:

Use the runes and their counterparts in the English alphabet to spell out either you username or your real name. (If a letter is unavailable, just leave either a space or substitute it with the English letter). From the meanings given in the article, write a paragraph explaining how the runes that make up your name either represent or do not represent who you are. Minimum of 100 words. When spelling your name here, you don't have to actually post the picture of the rune. Just put its name in its appropriate letter space. For example my name: Jera Uruz Nauthiz Ehwaz [JUNE].

Possible Points:

Part One: 45
Part Two: 45

REMEMBER TO CITE YOUR SOURCES!!!


As you now have to do your own research the total points possible is now 90

PM Samantha Granger if you have any questions!

Part One:

What are runes used for?
Runes are a sort of oracle one can ask advice from. It is useful at times of major life changes as well as day-to-day decision making. They also have been used for writing as a regular alphabet.

How are runes different from, for example, tarot cards, tea cups, and crystal balls that are commonly used in divination? (By 'different', I mean the information that they give).
The main difference that should be noted is that runes are not for telling the future. In reality nothing can tell you the future. Rather, they tell the outcome if a path is continued in the way it is lain out. Another difference is that the information given is even more vague than in the case of many other forms of divination. You have to be able to understand the intended meaning from the hints instead of just asking a question and getting an answer.

What does the word 'Rune' mean?
The word rune means mystery, secret, or whisper. This is not surprising given the vague nature of the runes.

According to mythology, how did humans receive the meanings of the Runes?
It is believed that we recieved the runes from the Norse gods. Odin, the High God, recieved them after an initiation of sorts. There is a tree known as the world tree or Yggdrasil. For nine days and nights he hung from that tree by his own spear. After this clearly torturous period, the runes appeared on the ground below him. He scooped them up, and was granted additional power.
In order to gain more power by way of a different branch of magic, he passed the information on to Freya, the Vanir goddess. Eventually we humans gained the knowlege from Heimdall, who was the guardian of the Rainbow Bridge, which is the bridge between the mortal world and the world of the gods.

The Old Germanic Runic alphabet is also known as what?
It is also known as the Elder Futhark alphabet.


Part Two:

As spelled out in the Elder Futhark alphabet my name, Pamela, would be Perthro Ansuz Mannaz Ehwaz Laguz Ansuz. The letter that most jumped out at me as something I felt a connection to was Laguz. This rune traditionally symbolizes things relating to water, and I have always felt a love for water, especially the sea. It also can symbolize a strong imagination. I have an intense fascination with fantasies, dreams, and other worlds. The one that definitely did not seem to relate to me was Perthro. It symbolizes a knowlege of the future and one's own destiny. I'm clueless when it comes to these things. It also represents mystery. I'm pretty much the most straight-forward person I know. Ansuz, which symbolizes a power of words as well as wisdom does relate to me well in that I'm a writer. I also have a way with words in speech. I can be very persuasive if I want to be. Also, wisdom is one of the most important things in the world to me. In a similar way Mannaz relates to me. It symbolizes, among other things, intelligence. The gathering of knowlege is another priority in my life. I'm somewhat wishy-washy with Ehwaz. What jumped out at me about that letter was the word loyalty. I'm not one to give loyalty to just anyone or anything; however, if I feel a friend has proven worthy, I will give loyalty.

Part One:

What are runes used for?

Runes are used for writing, divination and magic. They are also an ancient Germanic alphabet. They can also be used to tell advice to people.

How are runes different from, for example, tarot cards, tea cups, and crystal balls that are commonly used in divination? (By 'different', I mean the information that they give).

Runes, unlike tarot cards, tea cups, crystal balls etc., are not used for telling your future. They are mostly used for analyzing a path you are on. That means, the path can be changed if the you choose to do something and 'stray' from the path.

What does the word 'Rune' mean?
The word 'rune' means mystery secret and whisper.

According to mythology, how did humans receive the meanings of the Runes? Please explain the complete process in your own words.
There was a god called Odin who was the Norse High God of the Aesir. He hung himself on a tree with his very own spear. On the tree which was called Yggdrasil, he was there for 9 days, and 9 nights. Finally the runes he had wanted to gain from his own torture appeared in front of him. Odin took the runes and recieved all the knowledge in it. Later on, he gave his knowledge of the runes to Vanir goddess Freya who 'paid' Odin by teaching him seidr magic. Heimdall who somehow got the knowledge later on was a god of the Rainbow Bridge taught the runic knowledge to humans.

The Old Germanic Runic alphabet is also known as what?

Elder Futhark

Part Two:

In the alphabet of Elder Futhark, my name [Ingrid] is spelled as: Isa Ingwaz Algiz Isa Dagaz.
Isa [I] means a challenge or frustration. I guess that relates to me because I'm often frustrated with things I do and have to overcome many challenges.
The next 'letters' is Ingwaz. I could have spelled my with seperate letters except Ingwaz means [NG] which is my next 2 letters at the same time! Ingwaz means internal growth and a 'male god'. True, I'm not a male but the internal growth part I can relate. I often, nowadays, realize many things and learn about things I didn't understand- or refused to, before. I guess that means I'm growing 'spiritually' which means internal growth.
The next letter [R] is symbolized by Algiz. Algiz means protection. I don't think this one relates to me that much except for linking to the letters [NG], I think when I have internal growth, that means I'm learning more things and shedding protection on how the world is not really always a happy place with bunnies hopping, flowers blooming - like those Disney Princess movies.
The last letter (since I'm skipping letter 'I' since I already wrote about that in the second paragraph) is [D] which is symbolized by Dagaz. Dagaz means breakthrough of awareness and changing your fate. That completly relates on the letters [NG] and [R] about growing, shedding your protection and becoming aware of what is right in front of you and choosing what you want to be for the rest of your life. I think that relates to be because right now at school, I need to learn about choosing the right thing to do and choosing my path (by passing all the tests and getting a good grade).

Part One:
What are runes used for?
Runes are a Germanic alphabet. They used runes for a form of magic, even divination and mainly for writing.

How are runes different from, for example, tarot cards, tea cups, and crystal balls that are commonly used in divination? (By 'different', I mean the information that they give).
Well Runes are used as a form of communication for either the present or future by explaining the path that they are on. They are however not like tarot cards, tea cups or crystal balls as they only are used for communication and magic. Tarot cards, tea cups and crystal balls tell the future and runes do not.

What does the word 'Rune' mean?
The word Rune means mystery, secret or whisper.

According to mythology, how did humans receive the meanings of the Runes? Please explain the complete process in your own words.
Well there was this god Odin, the Norse High God of the Aesir who was hung by a world tree named Yggdrasil. The impalement lasted about 9 days. The reason for this was because he wanted to gain knowledge about runes.
During this time, he was lucky enough to have been given some runes on the ground. So he went and picked all them up, as he did so he gained a massive power surge. As this knowledge was so great he went and passed it on to Vanir goddess Freya. She was able to teach Odin to use these runes. Afterwards the rainbow bridge guard Heimdall taught all mankind.

The Old Germanic Runic alphabet is also known as what?
“Elder Futhark” and it contains 24 runes.

Part Two:

With the alphabet of Elder Futhark, I made my name (Christina)

C (no letters available) Hagalaz Raidho Isa Sowlio Tiwaz Isa Nauthiz Ansuz

Well since I couldn’t get any Elder Futhark for my C, I will ignore it. Hagalaz means that I’m a natural disaster. I completely disagree with this rune. I haven’t been a crisis that caused a natural disaster. But I do agree with inner harmony and pain, loss and hardship.

Raidho states, seeing a larger picture, seeing the right move for you to make and deciding upon it. These statements are correct in always. I do like to pick the correct move before taking a step, who doesn’t? I think this rune could possibly relate to anyone.

Isa states, illusion, deceit, betrayal, guile, stealth, ambush, plots. What I’m I? I mass murder? Gosh I feel like I’m a criminal trying to create a plan of escape. This so isn’t me. I don’t agree with this Rune at all. I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m not a perfect person; but ambush, betrayal and plots? Please!!

Sowlio means, Success, goals achieved, honor. Hmm, I can agree with this statement. I mean with goals finished caused achievement and then honor within ones self.

Tiwaz means, Honor, justice, leadership and authority. Well considering I’m in the process of becoming a police officer then this statement is absolutely correct.

Nauthiz means, Delays, restriction. This is also true. I do have moments in my career were I have huge side steps of delays and huge restrictions until I go up in rank.

Ansuz means, Protection, a shield. LOL, so fits into the policing aspect. As I have my badge and gun; sounds like protection to me. As I serve and protect as the same time.

ANCIENT RUNES MADE EASY

Part One:


What are runes used for?

Ancient runes are used for writing, divining, and, of course, magic.

How are runes different from, for example, tarot cards, tea cups, and crystal balls that are commonly used in divination? (By 'different', I mean the information that they give).
Runes are different from other types of divining mediums because the future they show is much less clear. This is because the path or future a person can have has the ability to change if the person makes a certain decision. When using runes, you are also much more likely to be seeking advice, such as the answer to specific questions. It is in these situations that the rune readings, although obscure, are the most clear.

What does the word 'Rune' mean?
The word “rune” means mystery, secret, or whisper.

According to mythology, how did humans receive the meanings of the Runes? Please explain the complete process in your own words.
Norse Mythology details how humans originally received the Runes:

Odin, the High God of Aesir, went through excruciating pain to get the Runes. He was impaled upon a world tree, known as Yggdrasil, for nine days and nine nights. At last, the Runes appeared to him, and he took them. The knowledge of the Runes empowered him, and he in turn gave this knowledge to the goddess Freya in exchange for learning the magic of seidr. The runes were taught to mankind by Heimdall, who was the god who guarded the Rainbow Bridges.

So, it would seem as though the Runes have come to humans only after much work.

The Old Germanic Runic alphabet is also known as what?
The Old Germanic Runic alphabet is now more commonly referred to as “The Elder Futhark” and contains 24 Runes. It gets it’s name from the first six letters of it’s “alphabet”. The first letters in Fehu, Uruz, Thurisaz, Ansuz, Raidho, and Kenaz spell out “FUTHARK”.


Part Two:


Use the runes and their counterparts in the English alphabet to spell out either you username or your real name. (If a letter is unavailable, just leave either a space or substitute it with the English letter). From the meanings given in the article, write a paragraph explaining how the runes that make up your name either represent or do not represent who you are. Minimum of 100 words. When spelling your name here, you don't have to actually post the picture of the rune. Just put its name in its appropriate letter space.


My Real First Name: Rachel
My First Name in Runes: Raidho Ansuz Kenaz Jera Eihwaz Laguz
Whether or not it represents me:
While all of these different runes have many meanings, I believe that my runic name gives, more or less, a rather accurate description of me. Raidho, the Chariot, represents travel, and traveling is something I really enjoy doing. Ansuz, which can symbolize the ancestral god, Odin, symbolizes insight and advice, something that I am rather talented at giving, and I believe that I want to do something with psychology in the future. Kenaz, the torch, and Jera, the year, (which I had to use to represent CH, as it is the closest thing in the Runic alphabet) signifies knowledge and the promise of success earned-I like to believe I am very knowledgeable, and I do above average in school for a student my age, so I have earned some success in that manner. Eihwaz, the yew tree, denotes trustworthiness. I am very loyal to my friends, and am very honored that they all feel so comfortable in confiding in me. Finally, Laguz, the water, indicates imagination, psychic matters, and life energy. I am full of energy, as many people are very aware of, and am always doing something imaginative-making graphics, scribbling stories, or creating dance routines to a song on my iPod. As for the psychic matters…well, let’s just say sometimes I’m freakishly right


Possible Points:

Part One:
20
Part Two: 45
Bonus for proper use of grammar, spelling etc, and for a well-written paragraph.

Total Possible Points: 70 points

PART 1

WHAT ARE RUNES USED FOR?

Runes were used for writting, divination, and magic throughout Europe, Scandinavia, Iceland and the British Ilses.

How are runes different from, for example, tarot cards, tea cups, and crystal balls that are commonly used in divination? (By 'different', I mean the information that they give).

Runes don't give details into what is going to happen. They only give a anaylized account of what will happen not a fixed outcome. Runes are different from predictions in the sense that predictions only give one out come where with runes you can change your path.

What does the word 'Rune' mean?

Rune means mystery, whisper, or secret, but depending on where you are from it could translate into different phrases or meanings.

According to mythology, how did humans receive the meanings of the Runes? Please explain the complete process in your own words.

Odin , a norse god, speared Yggdrasil with his own spear and hung him from the world tree for 9 days and nights. After that time the runes appeared below him and he picked them up and with their knowledge became powerful. He later passed on the knowledge of the runes to the goddess Freya who in turn taught him magic of seidr. Later the god Heimdall took the knowledge of the runes and taught it to the people of earth.

The Old Germanic Runic alphabet is also known as what?

The old germanic runic alphabet is also known as the Elder Futhark.

PART 2


Use the runes and their counterparts in the English alphabet to spell out either you username or your real name. (If a letter is unavailable, just leave either a space or substitute it with the English letter). From the meanings given in the article, write a paragraph explaining how the runes that make up your name either represent or do not represent who you are. Minimum of 100 words. When spelling your name here, you don't have to actually post the picture of the rune. Just put its name in its appropriate letter space. For example my name: Jera Uruz Nauthiz Ehwaz [JUNE]. While writing/gathering information for your paragraph, stop where it says: *insert rune name here* reversed.

Jera Eihwaz Sowilo Sowilo

Jera means year or good harvest. The people also iterpret it as being the hopes and expectations of peace and prosperity. It also opposes itself by being conflict and bad timing. Eihwaz means yew tree. It is looked to as a word of being strength, reliability, and enlightenment as well as a driving sense of purpose. Sowilo means the sun. This word is looked at as being success, achieving goals and honor.

Overall I believe that these words describe me because I am ever changing like the seasons during the year, people rely on me as much as I rely on myself, and I always have to succeed that is just the way I am. I have to work to succeed and reach my goals no matter how high. It is scary how dead on this thing is about me.

Sowilo Tiwaz Eihwaz Perthro Hagalaz

Sowilo- this rune describes success and in the past I have accomplished many things. It also says about goals and I like to set goals for myself. These goals that I set for myself I do accomplish but if I am unable to I will try my hardest to get as close as I can to my accomplishment.

Tiwaz – this rune is described as leadership and authority. I do not think that I am a very good leader but many other people disagree with me. I also don’t have that much authority unless they are my friends. My friends know that I care for them and take my advice if they too think that its good and they usually do but when it comes to others I don’t have that much authority.

Eihwaz- this runes is described as trustworthiness. I am a very trustworthy person. If someone tells me a secrete I will not tell anyone else without their permission. If they are counting on me to do something for them I will do it and if they need my help I am there for them no matter what it is.

Perthro- this rune is described as a mystery. Many people say that I can be secretive and for the most part I am. If I don’t know you well then for the most part I will not tell you much about myself but if you spend the time to get to know me I will eventually open up to you and tell you just about everything. I only do this when I believe that I can trust you with the information that I tell you.

Hagalaz- this rune is described as destructive. I do not think that I am destructive I do not like to see things being destroyed and try to prevent it if I could.

PostSubject: ARME Assignment   Tue Aug 17 2010, 05:49

Part One:
1. Runes are used for writing, magic, and divination.
2. Casting runes is not a means of foretelling the future; runes analyze the state of one’s affairs and describe the likely outcome of the current path.
3. ‘Rune’ means ‘mystery’, ‘secret’, or ‘whisper’.
4. Humans received the meaning of the runes from Heimdall, the Norse god-guardian of the rainbow, or the link between Asgard and Midgard. Heimdall was taught the meaning of the runes by the goddess, Freya, who learned of their meaning from Odin, the Norse high god.

It took nine days for the runes to reveal their knowledge to Odin, during which time the god hung from Yggdrasill, the ‘world tree’, impaled on his own spear. He sacrificed himself to himself because acquiring the knowledge of the runes required the meeting of certain dues and probably because he had to go on a trance journey to find the knowledge of the runes somewhere within one of the other nine worlds.

5. Elder Futhark

Part Two:
Tiwaz Jera Berkano Wunjo
For this part of the assignment, I just did my username because my full name (first, middle, last) is 23 letters long! So tjbw it is.

Turns out, four letters is all I needed to come up with some pretty interesting stuff. From tiwaz, the property ‘rational’ popped out as being an apt description of my personality. I am very sensible, and slow to panic; my arguments are sound 96% of the time. From jera, “everything changes, in its own time” is a personal philosophy of mine. To me, everything happens (what we consider good and what we consider bad) because change is life. And it is just that simple.

From berkano, the whole description fits me right now. The hubby and I are working on our mental, physical, and personal growth, in part to better our fertility and child bearing health; we are definitely in a romantic phase. I consider ‘new birth’ to be the outcome of my current path. In wunjo, I also hope that “the prospering of an enterprise or venture, spiritual reward, general success and recognition of worth” are the outcomes of my current path, because there are many actions I am currently taking for which these are the exact results I am praying for.

PART 1

What are runes used for?

Runes are used mainly for writing. It is an ancient Germanic alphabet that dates back to 100 B.C. In addition to their uses in language, runes are also used in magic and divination.

How are runes different from, for example, tarot cards, tea cups, and crystal balls that are commonly used in divination? (By 'different', I mean the information that they give).
While the aforementioned methods used in divination are used to see in to the future, runes are used as more of hints towards a path in a specific current event in one's life. While tarot cards, tea readings, and crystal balls usually foretell the future, runes are used more as advice. Like a push in the right direction.

What does the word 'Rune' mean?
The word 'rune' means mystery, secret or whisper.

According to mythology, how did humans receive the meanings of the Runes? Please explain the complete process in your own words.
The Norse High God, Odin, impaled and hung himself from the world tree, Yggdrasil, for nine fulls days so that he could gain understanding of runes. When he finally recieved the runes, they gave him power and knowledge. He later passed on what he knew to the Vanir goddess Freya, and she taught him the magic of seidr. Afterwards the God Heimdall, whom was the guard of the Rainbow Bridge, taught the runes to mankind.


The Old Germanic Runic alphabet is also known as what?

Elder Futhark

PART 2


Kenaz-Ansuz-Isa-Tiwaz-Laguz-Isa-Nauthiz
K-A-I-T-L-I-N
There is no rune for "C", so I've replaced it with the equivalent to "K" seeing as they have the same sound.



For Kenaz I agree with it representing me in most ways described. I'm very involved with just about anything having to use creativity. You name it, I've probably done it. With the whole "power to create you own reality" thing, I would most definitely agree. When I know that I want something whole-heartedly, I don't stop until I achieve it.

As for Ansuz, I'd have to disagree almost entirely. While I do have enthusiasm for anything and everything I find intrest in, I'm awful at communication... especially through speech. Don't get me wrong, I can get up on a stage and perform a monolouge no sweat, but they aren't my own words. Moving on to the part about good health? I'm sick year round courtesy of Cystic Fibrosis, so I'm obviously not a picture perfect "Ansuz" poster child.

My name has two I's in it. Isa, the runic equivalent stands for challenges or frustrations, as well as mental blocks to thought and/ or activity. The description says that the psychological blocks also apply to grievances. When something bad happens in my life, I take it as a really hard hit. I do tend to sort of shut down until I can find some way of picking myself back up again.

Tiwaz represents honor, justice, and leadership. All of these things I say I have in my personality in one way or another. For justice, I don't even put up with people J-walking. Tiwaz also describes victory and succes in any competition. Seeing as how I am quite possibly the most competetive person I know, I'd have to agree.

As for Laguz, water has always been an important part of my life. This ruin represents imagination and dreams, both of which I take pride in. In addition to those, Laguz also stands for mystery. I'm more curious than a cat, so this ruin obviously represents me well.

I also agree with the presece of the Nauthiz rune. In all, the description is about having intense confusion and hardships in one's life, but also having the will and power to overcome them when decided upon it. I've had a lot of trouble with depression and what not, but I know that I can't give up.. So basically, I agree.
