rune trios: pertho | mannaz | laguz

©2021 Michael Raven

the nornir show their hand today
carving their wyrd
not into a tree, but me
before tossing me to drown
in the well of dreams
laughing at my
grasping greedy hand
as i slip beneath the waters


Literal meaning unknown, prophecy, chance, living with unknowns, perception of ørlǫg and wyrd, patterns, luck, play

Murk: psychological or emotional addictions, delusion, fantasy


“Mankind”, mind, memory, social order, sustainability, mental and spiritual power, self-actualization

Murk: depression, self-delusion, arrogance, social division, chaotic mind, forgetfulness


“Lake”, subconscious, memory, dreams, water, guidance through difficulty, testing

Murk: fear, depression, avoidance, toxicity, poison, emotional blackmail

Argument: Ever evolving this process, I have decided that three is a sacred number for runes (as is nine) and have expanded the number of runes to include in my exploration. Please do not confuse this for a wyrd reading, there is no divination implied in these rune explorations. However, there is always shamanic and internal alchemy being explored.
