Interpreting the Runes ~ Rad ~ Raido ~ Raidho ~ Cartwheel
One will always find when reading the runes, that none of them is one-dimensional; especially Raidho. This rune, like Ansur, is also connected with the planet Mercury and is thus associated with communication. The communication associated with Raidho is especially directed toward travel. This rune causes an opposition between the ideas of travel and communication. Travel may be interpreted quite literally with this rune showing that for the person for whom we are reading a trip or physical journey may be expected. On the other hand, as travel in the ancient Germanic lands was treacherous and much longer in duration in the extreme, Raidho may be signaling that the person is ready to embark on a journey of personal growth; an inner journey that will bring enlightenment and yield new levels of understanding and knowledge.
Unlike Ansur, which counsels caution, forethought and advice before taking action, Raidho signals a need to move now. The outlook is good, as it is time for the person being read to shirk the “I can’t decide one way or the other” scenario and make a decision. The planet Mercury rules trade and as a result, Raidho can signal that there is some significant form of a business transaction in the near future. Recalling that the central meaning behind the rune Raidho is communication and travel, the person being read could receive some form of message that could skew the entire present situation in a most unexpected way.
When Raidho is drawn in the reversed position, obstacles and delays may be looming related to travel. If the person we are reading is planning a trip of some sort, there are sure to be any number of hindrances in the way of progress. Another sign of Raidho reversed is the message that a need for travel may present itself at a most inappropriate time, leaving one’s home or base, vulnerable. Lastly, this rune also may signal in the reversed position that one may expect a visit from a person that will result in unimaginable inconvenience.
