    The Anglo-Saxon has 29-33 runes in it (again, sorta depends which 'language' you're using... both are historically valid)... an excellent source for these is Nigel Pennick'c Rune Magic, which I believe is still in print & available from amazon.com or B&N.com, or maybe even your local bookstore.

      Rick, what do you think of Edred Thorsson's work?

        I think that many of his works are "must-have's" if one is a serious student of runes. I think many of his works aren't for everyone, & are ONLY for serious students of runes. I think that since he has a fistful of doctorates in the areas that he writes about, & has done a decade worth of field research in various locations throughout Europe, he probably knows whereof he speaks.

                Nyd rune, help w/interpretation?

                Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum and would appreciate any advice on the following.

                On three occasions in recent years I've asked the runes to shed light on the "essence" of my life or what most clearly summarizes what my life is about (a pretty general--and vain--question, I know), and every time I've drawn the Nyd rune - reversed on one occasion and "normal" the other two.

                From what I've read, the Nyd rune, reversed or not, isn't exactly good news (failure, delays, sorrow, hunger, etc). I find this especially disturbing since I've always been idealistic and goal-oriented, and have worked hard to achieve what I have in life. I have big plans for the coming years and the thought of failure and sorrow as the "essence" my life gives me shudders!

                Am I missing something or do you think there's reason to worry?

                Thanks!

                  Nyd rune, help w/interpretation?

                  What source are you using Nyd? Nyd is one of the runes that has no reverse
                  But then there is the argument that none of the runes have reveres
                  Nyd also indicates the Vail and night is the Vail one of the goddess of Nyd is Nott or night
                  my question is what are you hunger for?
                  and Delay may mean being slow to reacted
                  Nyd means Need A need to do
                  hope this helps

                                I received a lovely new unfinished wooden set of runes for Christmas from a friend. I am supposed to consecrate it with oil which will not rot the wood. I was wondering which oil would be best? It's my first wooden set, I've only had stone ones before and I'm not quite sure.
                                For all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these, 'It might have been.'

                                Usually when people are sad, they don't do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when they get angry, they bring about a change.
