Elder Futhark Runes: Wyn

The Elder Futhark Runes were made up of 24 basic runic letters. There were more added at points in time. The basic 24 are the runes that are normally used in divination and runic magic. The Elder Futhark alphabet starts with Feoh and ends with Dag. Each letter has its own meaning and correspondences.

Wyn is the eighth rune in the Elder Futhark alphabet and is the last in the first aett. Wyn stands for joy and prosperity. In magick, joy refers to the balance in nature and the people. It removes anxiety and uncertainty because it is the mid-point between extremes. It is also the prosperity rune since when you are in balance all things are easier. This prosperity doesn’t just include wealth, but also love happiness and joy. It is a great rune to use in combination with other positive runes for added magickal and spiritual energy.

Like the Gyfu rune, the Wyn rune is represented by the Ash tree, especially by the most sacred tree, the Yggdrasil. Ash is the tree traditionally used for making fence posts as well as the handles of tools and weapons.  In this, it represents order.  Ash is also the wood that is used in Druidic wands as it is a great conductor of magickal force or önd.  The smoke from burning Ash is said to chase away evil spirits and negative energy.
