Welcome to another installment of our journey through the runes, based on The Elder Futhark Script.
Today we explore Raidho (rye-though).
Raidho is the rune of travel. This rune indicates you are setting off (or will soon set off) on a journey, whether in the external world or on an emotional or spiritual level.
If your travel is physical, it signals a pleasant experience with few or no mishaps. If you are on a spiritual quest, the going may require significant flexibility on your part, but the rewards of reaching your destination will be well worth it, as you are following your soul’s chosen path. Either way, you are advised to keep your focus on the experience of the journey itself, rather than on your arrival. This is because Raidho signifies not just the vehicle you ride in, but also the road you travel on. You will be best served by making the most of every moment along the way.
You may have to travel for unpleasant reasons or to a place you’d rather not visit. If this is the case, now is a good time to remember that all journeys yield lessons, and you will have an easier time of it if you can be in acceptance as much as possible, rather than resistance.
A related interpretation of Raidho is “reunion” – specifically the return of old friends in your life or the arrival of new people with whom you made a soul agreement before incarnating into this life. It is possible that you may be presented with a chance to resolve a disagreement or conflict with someone else or with yourself.
Some runic systems also view Raidho as an indicator that now is a good time for negotiations or deliberations related to agreements with others. Financially speaking, this rune can indicate that the time is right to buy or sell.
Finally, sometimes Raidho is simply a reminder to align yourself with the “wheel of life” Know that life has its ups and downs, ebbs and flows and constant seasonal changes. The contrast between opposites is part of the journey of life. If things are not going your way, take heart and know that nothing is permanent.
The birthdates Raidho is associated with is August 29th – September 13th.
