Here’s a little bit of fun you can all have with your date of birth and the Runes. It’s really very simple. All you need is the day and month of your birth and some simple arithmetic. Let’s have a pun and call it…


Using the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc it is possible to list 31 Runes for each day of the month. Select your Day and Month of birth. Add these two figures together to get your Life Challenge. Add this total together to get a single digit for your destiny woven by the Norns.

My birthdate is 1st of October so that 1 & 10 or in Rune stones, 1 = Feoh (Wealth – Livestock)  & 10 = Nȳd (Shadows – Nutrients). So as a birthing frequency I kinda have ‘A Wealth of Shadows’. I can certainly vouch for there having been a plethora of dark moments in my life but there’s also been heaps of joy that follow those darker moments.

By adding the day and month together I can look at a challenge or hurdle that needs attending to in life. So 1 + 10 = 11 and that is the Rune, Īs. By looking up 11 on the ‘Life Challenges’ list I get…

11. Fear makes you a victim of your own delusions. It’s cool to slip up and get back up again.

If I work on defeating this challenge I can hone in on my destiny which is found by reducing your Challenge total to a single digit therefore mine is 1 + 1 = 2 which on the destiny list is…

2. Untameable, roaming freely. Understanding the wonders that Nomadic confidence            offers. Exploration is nourishment. 

So I’m happy with that. I might start pulling runes to see what other challenges I might look into. I’m sure all 42 will be part of me if I’m honest with myself.
