Perthro is the rune of the Seer, Oracle and Mystic. In the Tarot, it corresponds with The High Priestess and The Hanged Man. In general, it asks the Seeker to go within for answers and to not neglect signs and synchronicities all around her. Much that is hidden has yet to be uncovered before the Seeker’s path is clear.
In dealings with others, the Perthro rune could be a sign that they are hiding something from the Seeker. Perthro is a rune of secrets, mystery and prophecy. In a relationship reading, it can show up for two souls that are destined to do the Great Work in unison, together with Gebo, Wunjo and Mannaz.
The Anglo-Saxon rune poem for Perthro:
““Perthro is a source of play and laughter for the great, where warriors sit blithely together in the banqueting hall””
