    ok be nice but yeah i need some help and i didnt know where to post this...

    yeah i did'nt know where to post this. my problem is that i got a tattoo..me and my ex wife did some research on runes and we found a special set of runes that is more then just "letters" The set of runes i found were pretty basic runes that also were letters but whatever guide i found also had a cool chart that pointed out which rune meant as far as what they symbolized and all the runes were given names. Well i picked all the runes that resonated with me and got them tattooed on me in a sequence that kinda tells a story or paints a sort of picture? pretty deep symbolic kinda stuff too..but yeah i never really memorized their meanings..i did write them all down but lost the piece of paper i wrote them down on..AND also the laptop I used to find the site that had the references ended up getting destroyed and i lost the link i had bookmarked. ..ive tried searching for the site online but for some wierd reason i cannot find a site that has what im looking for. for some reason ..since samhain and now that my birthsign is rising...i've felt really drawn to remembering what the whole thing is about because i purposely did the tattoo to transcribe a sort of message to myself. I feel pretty dumb for not memorizing it..at the time i was very busy with my kids and work and taking care of my wife so i did'nt really even have any time for working on magick and the like...i wanted to do a "charging ritual" as well ..and now i kinda feel its time to do that but i;m stuck...

    What exactly are you asking for help with? The meanings of the runes?

    A picture would be helpful - there are some really experienced individuals here who will be able to help you interpret their meanings.

    I second what Torey asked. Some of us are really knowledgable about the runes, but we cannot be of much help without an image.

    Re: ok be nice but yeah i need some help and i didnt know where to post this...

    The runes look to be (from top to bottom) Perth (luck), Ansuz (god), Thurisaz (giant), Nauthiz (necessity) OR Gebo (gift), Sowulo (sun, though this is missing the extension so it might be something else), and Wunjo (joy). I believe they're all from the elder Futhark listing, but runes aren't something I'm super into. I'm personally of the opinion that runes aren't any more magical than the Latin alphabet, since there's no evidence they were anything but a writing system, but I also think words are inherently magical anyway so, whatever.

    These runes can also be transliterated as p-a-th-n(or)g-s-w using their associated letter sounds. I'm not really sure what else you're asking for.

    Yep, they are Elder Futhark runes. From top to bottom: Pertho-Ansuz-Thurisaz-Gebo-Sowilo-Wunjo. Corvus' translations aren't quite perfect but they are the common amalgamated 'meanings' and so are probably the meanings that you first saw, especially if you saw them on an internet chart.

    This is actually not strictly true. There is no historical evidence that the Elder or Younger Futhark runes were used as a divination system, but we do have some evidence that they were used in magical charms and spellcasting. Most of the primary sources aren't specific about the actual runes themselves, but there are some accounts that name the rune staves that we know today. So to say that they were nothing but a writing system is not technically correct and cannot be proven.

    My argument would be that this isn't substantively different from most other cultures and magic done with the local written language is pretty common. There's sources which ascribe magical meaning to runes, however it's unclear if that is referring to the magical power of words, or the runes themselves. It may be later that they were mystified and given greater meaning, much like Greek and Latin were in other regions.

    Except that the runes attributed to magical charms and spellcasting do not always form words. In some cases, it is the single rune itself, or a repetition of that rune that forms the spell.
