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

From what I understand, Galdr is very much male-oriented. I have no intention of 'moving on' to it... and as much as I appreciate your concern and readiness to help, I wasn't requesting it. I'm quite capable of learning, and choosing a teacher if needs be, all by myself.

As for crafting, consecrating and using? I've only done so with one set of runes. I don't just create sets of runes and use them willy-nilly, in my opinion that would be insulting and disrespectful to them. I've made runes for people who asked me to make them after seeing the ones I'd made for myself, and as for what I did with them... To be honest, right now I don't really remember, and I don't appreciate having my methods questioned like some kind of bunny. I don't just do things without learning first.

I am a beginner.

I'm not a beginner, but not an expert either. I've enjoyed (thoroughly) learning from Beorc, Fox and Asdea.. I love them dearly for it. I'm interested to see if you can bring anything new and worthwhile to the light.

I'm useless at using the runes for divination... I don't have much of a head for remembering meaning... but I am very good at making them. =3
