Fehu Elder Futhark Rune Symbol Meaning First Aett


Modern meaning of Fehu is prosperity, money, and property. It is the Rune of creation & destruction, energy and fertility. It is a true Rune of abundance through EFFORT and perseverance. It will not tolerate lazy and reckless behavior, as well as greed.

Rune Fehu will aid with obtaining a favorable outcome of a project, task, any new beginning. It gives a power to obtain as well as helps to preserve what you already have. It will help in a situation where you are at competition or opposition.

You can use this Rune when making a purchase, going for a job interview or in general, when dealing with any financial matters. This Rune is also connected to the well-being of the soul, it aids in creative projects where you express yourself and use your talents.

One more point that should be mentioned about interpretation of Fehu is what a person is going to do with their wealth or in general, their material possessions.

There is a reason why this Rune means “cattle”. It does not directly mean money or house. Cattle is not only a possession but also a continuous source of production. This metaphor asks a person to take a closer look at what they are doing to expand and grow. Many people lose all the money when they win a lottery or receive an inheritance. It is an ability to amplify that is important.

Fehu IS read reversed, so be mindful when doing any Viking or Ásátru style Runic tattoo that includes Fehu.
