Runes – Perthro
The Runes are magical in nature, but also a practical written language. It is thought that the alphabetical order of these symbols derives from the Etruscans in Northern Italy – in the border region of Switzerland and Austria. The Germanic Tribes in the Alps merged their symbols with the Etruscan form of writing to create a working system for their people. The runes were used for good luck, love, blessings, a good harvest, victory in battle (engraved in sword blades), and divination.
Perthro is a deeply mysterious rune with various meanings ascribed. Some believe it to be a dice cup; that life is a combination of security and the risks needed for future improvements. Dice cups were also used in fortune telling, but it wasn’t necessarily a fixed fate, but rather options to help one make sound decisions. Others believe this shape to be of a burial chamber entrance where sacred ceremonies and communication with the ancestors took place. In that case this is a rune of magic, meditation, trance, intuition and initiation into the mysteries. Perthro is also akin to the cosmic laws of Nordic Karma – cause and effect.
