Hail! and Welcome to Runes and Galdr!

"Heill dagr! Heilir dags synir!

Heil nótt ok nift!

Óreiðum augum lítið okkr þinig

ok gefið sitjöndum sigr!


Heilir æsir! Heilar ásynjur!

Heil sjá in fjölnýta fold!

Mál ok mannvit gefið okkr mærum tveim

ok læknishendr, meðan lifum.


(English translation)


"Hail, day! Hail, sons of day!

Hail night and night's daughter!

With loving eye look on we gathered

and grant us great victories.


"Hail gods! Hail goddesses!

Hail the all-giving earth spirits!

Sage wisdom and goodly speech give to we who are renowned

And healing hands, life-long


from “Sigdrífumál”

I don't know how many are aware of it, but here is a video on youtube featuring Freya Aswynn intoning the Elder Futhark. I find it very helpful for my own rune meditations: …Continue

Hi there, I've been a member of realpagan for awhile. At this point in my life I am more interested in Kemetic practices, but I'm still interested in  runes for anyone who wants to chat about them.

Can this Tyr ritual include a "blot"

A blot can be a simple affair where a horn of mead is consecrated to
the Gods and then poured as a libation, or it can be a part of a
larger ritual.

I am glad to be here. I have been following the Elder futhark and enjoy reading about the Norse mytholgy and the runes. I have been wanting to do a ritual for the Norse God Tyr but I am not saure how to do it.

hello, are people still here in the group?

I have read about Galdr. One book states that when you sing the rune you only use the vowels another has you reciting a rune in various ways. Which is right?

Hi Chaz,

Can you please clarify why divination works, particularly Runic divination? Thanks.

I apologize for my rather grumpy reply :) I feel like I should know these things so I guess my pride got hurt xD
Thank you for the welcome, too. :)

Hehe, thanks for the welcome. I've been meaning to join, but I know next to nothing about the runes, although I've been drawn to them for years. Anyway, other than asking pretty beginner stuff, I'll probably be a bit of lurker for a while, at least until I know more than I know at the moment...LOL

Well I do not have years of research or practice on my back when it comes to these matters. While I am familiar, mostly due to location, with these subjects I really did not expect to be sitting on any information that would be useful to you.

I do know Icelandic christian priests used runes and rune magic, long after the christian faith took over, and somehow (while pagan religions were THE DEVIL) this was socially accepted.

Obviously I would need to go through mountains of reading material before I become of any use in this group.
