    Rune of the week/month... anyone interested?

    I've had a look through the Heathenry board and the Divination & Astrology board, and aside from a few newbie questions about runes and the one sticky thread above, we've never really discussed them in depth. Is anyone interested in doing some beyond-introductory type compilation of our thoughts and experiences about the runes? I'm thinking maybe a 'Rune of the Week/Fortnight/Month/whatever'... either starting with Fehu and working our way through the Futhark or with me picking a new one at random, maybe with inclusion of the Younger Futhark and the Anglo Saxon Futhorc runes somehow. Or we could just have a 'Rune of the Day' thread where someone picks a rune from their own set at random and posts about their thoughts on it, then the next person picks one from theirs and posts about it.

    Anyone interested? What do you all think? Any ideas for a format?

    I've specifically posted this in Heathenry rather than Divination because I work with the runes in magick far more often than I do in divination. There is more to them than divination, and I would like us to explore that together. Divination is certainly a part of it, but lets include galdr, lore, magick, combinations for bindrunes, correspondences (if you believe they have them) and everything else. This is not about book definitions or interpretations... this is about how WE interact with and use the runes in our everyday practices. Of course non-Heathens/NT/Northern folk are welcome to contribute, I just thought putting it here was more expansive than limiting it to Divination.

    I'm all for seeing rune info but I'll be more lurking than posting since I don't typically use them.

    I would add that option to the poll but I don't think I can edit it...

    I'm pretty sure someone can edit it but I'm going to sleep soon so I'm not meddling. I'll tinker tomorrow or see if I can con an admin.

    Cheers.

    No rush though. In the meantime, other would-be lurkers are welcome to contribute!

    Re: Rune of the week/month... anyone interested?

    I'll probably be something of a lurker as well, but I would be delighted to seeing this sort of thread.

    Runes have interested me for some time and, while I have never used them for spiritual or spiritual practices, I used to know the Futhark alphabet quite well. It would definitely be interesting to see the 'less secular' usage of runes, and how people apply them in their spiritual practice. :3

    Once again I will probably be one of the lurkers, but I support this idea for a thread.

    I'd welcome such a thing.
    A good deal of my daily practice and study revolves around the runes (the elder futhark) so I'd be very open to discussing and sharing ideas with everyone.

    Re: Rune of the week/month... anyone interested?

    I would love that. Personally I'd prefer it if it were either monthly or bi-weekly since life and stuff tend to happen. I very much like the idea of having it centred in magic(k), or at lest not in divination since I never use runes for divination but only in "spells", chants and rituals. I've never been able to make them work for me as divination tools, no idea why, so I'll just stick to my Tarot cars there.
