Elder Futhark Runes: Peorth

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.

Peorth has several meanings. It represents the dice cup, pawn or game piece. It represents chance and uncertainty.It also represents free will as once the game pieces are on the board, it is up to the gamer as to what happens next. The game board itself represents life, but a life that is confined to a pattern or set of rules.

On another level, it is also the rune used to bring things in existence. It exposes things that were previously concealed. This is why it is also considered the bringer of knowledge. With all the connotations of games boards, revealing knowledge and free will, Peorth is a rune of memory, recollection, problem-solving and esoteric knowledge. It is also a rune of magickal perception, letting us know the inner secrets of both the human world and nature.

The trees for this rune are Beech and Aspen. Beech is used in magickal writing which stores and protects knowledge. Aspen is a protective wood magickally and was used to make magickal shields and measuring rods.
