Rune Meanings ~&~ Symbols
Explore Norse Viking Rune Symbolism

Explore Rune Meanings Symbols, & Art.   For this article I created stylized runes on a colorful background highlighting the main power of the rune.  In addition a brief explanation of the lore and legend of each of the Viking Norse runes.  

Rune Meanings.....
"The origin of Runes is believed to have been created around 200 BC, the Nordic tribes of northern Europe devised these Rune Symbols to represent the forces of nature.  It was believed that by picking the right Rune, the caster or wearer could harness the power the rune represented".

Quite interestingly enough, rune symbols and names vary a bit, I am sharing the names and symbols of the Viking rune stones that I learned about 20 years ago, as I was quite entranced by their strong and mystical forms.  Indeed there are more runes and variations, however what I share here on this page is a simple set of Norse runes, with straightforward meanings that are brief and easy to remember and understand.   My advise in learning about the runes is to begin with a simple set of runes and meanings and expanding from there if you are drawn to learn more. My intention with this simple set of runes is to make remembering the runes and their meanings an easy and enjoyable process.   

Different types of runes:  Some rune sets have more characters, but interestingly enough all runes have remarkably similar names and the symbols quite nearly the same.  The slight variations designating differing regions or tribes, and adaptations made from the original.  Just as a story changes as it is passed on, the runes changed as they spread to other nations who found great power in their magic and meanings.  Norse and Germanic people carried runes similar in the way that Native American carried totems in amulet bags, or used them as a talisman.
