Here are the first 12 runes and their interpretations:

Feoh: Magical sacred meaning

This Rune brings to you an increase in wealth through your own efforts. It could indicate extra responsibilities or help which will be valued. It will move obstacles and bring them to a conclusion. It warns you to establish what is good in your life and what you feel are the really important aspects of it and then work towards them not allowing yourself to be side tracked. Once you have decide a course it will proceed to a successful conclusion.

Feoh: Reversed meaning.

If this Rune should fall reversed it means confusion, delay of plans and failure. Not a time to make any big decisions. You may lose something you have worked hard for and there maybe a lesson to be learnt from this. Have you been paying attention to detail or have you been shirking your duties.

Uruz: Magical sacred meaning

This Rune brings to you strength to deal with confrontations and courage to stand up against a challenge which could be sudden and dramatic. This is received as an omen of change which needs adapting to in order to allow you to grow. As something is lost and allowed to be let go freely, then space is relinquished in order to embrace a new challenge.

Uruz: Reversed meaning

Thorn: Magical sacred meaning

This Rune brings to you protection and luck. It indicates a time not to make decisions until you have examined your motives, for you are at a door way and you need to examine that which is hidden before you move. This could indicate protection from yourself, from harming your own circumstances by being foolhardy. It could also indicate the intentions of an attack. Watch your back.

Thorn: Reversed meaning

If this Rune should fall reversed it means your development is progressing faster at the moment then you are prepared for. Speed up quickly not to lose this opportunity to grow. The throwing of a temper tantrum, unbelievable arrogance and bad judgement are in the air so be warned.

As: Magical sacred meaning

This Rune brings to you the energies of a teacher or mentor. It prepares you to expect the unexpected, a signal to concentrate on what is best for you. It is the quest for truth and knowledge that drives us to communicate on all levels, and it is that same drive that make us individual. This is the Rune that sets you apart from others. All matters of public speaking, examinations, interviews, elections and ritual requests are favoured.

Radh: Magical sacred meaning

This Rune brings to you telephone messages, letters, unexpected travel and positive cycles in your daily life. Check that your passport and travel insurance are in order to be in a position to move fast. A symbol of fertility, good luck charms and returning to positive health after a time of illness or being out of balance.

Radh: Reversed meaning

If this Rune should fall reversed it means delays in travel arrangements, set backs in relationships and trickery and deceit in business. Feeling out of balance and dropping the ball will both be attributed to your failings so be attentive.
