Rune Study Post #6: Raidho

This post is part of an ongoing rune study series that invites discussion around the runes and personal experiences that relate to working with this system.

Today's focus will be on Raidho, the fifth rune of the first aett.
Raidho translates to "wagon," and in a basic sense represents travel, movement, transportation, and journeying.

The Anglo Saxon rune poem (translated by Tom Wulf) reads:

Riding is to the warrior in the hall easy,
But very strenuous for one who sits on top,
Of a powerful horse over the long miles.

In a very mundane example, this is a rune I often pull on days that I end up doing a lot of driving around town for leisure activities or various errands (usually the nice sort!).


1) What other meanings do you attribute to Raidho?

2) How do you utilize this rune in your practice?

3) If Raidho has presented itself in your rune castings, how have you seen its energy manifested?

This catches us up to the current course flow! Tomorrow I will post on Kenaz, and I will only be posting every Wednesday from then onward.
