Perthro or Peorth Elder Futhark Rune Meanings

Perthro – Rune of the Seer

The Perthro rune signifies the state of being receptive to divine messages, prophecy and revelation. It is the rune of the Tarot Reader, Oracle Witch, Seer or Prophetess. It tells us that we are missing important information unless we allow guidance to arise from within and pay attention to signs and synchronicities.

Stripped back meaning based on the actual word and shape

The shape of the rune is a die cup (or lot cup) on its side. Gambling and casting lots were almost interchangeable in Viking times. Being lucky when gambling meant you were fate was on your side. Personally, I believe the shape combines with the word ‘perthro’ to mean portal or gateway (port in modern Swedish). This is the gateway through which we receive subtle messages from the unseen realm. Casting lots is certainly one way of making this connection. However, if someone abuses this practice to gamble or to prove that they are ‘luckier’ than someone else, there will be a distortion of any message that wants to come through.

The intent has to be pure.

Upright, this rune means that hidden information is being revealed, pointing the way to the future. When it is reversed, it is pointing to the past, asking us to learn from past patterns and integrate the learning from past lessons before we are ready to move on.
