Furthark Runic Script Ring
ALGIZ - Protection, Sedge and Rushes, a Moose
This is about the control of emotions. During transition periods, changing the course of life and accelerated self-change, it is important not to rush into emotions, either positive or negative. Remember that early action and right conduct are the only real protection. No matter whether your business flourishes or fades, don't worry. Maybe you don't win, but you will never lose because you will always learn from what has happened. Moderation and civility are the strengths of the protective forces of this rune.
RAIDHO, RAIDO - Communication, Agreement, Reconciliation, A Journey
This rune is about the communication, the mood of something that has two sides, two elements, and about a different reunion. Here grows the intrinsic value, and at such times, we must remember that it is not envisaged that we rely totally on our own strength, but instead ask ourselves what is the right action.
EHWAZ - Movement, Progress, Horse
Ehwaz is a rune of passage, of transition and movement: location changes, relocation, new attitudes or new life. This rune also represents movement, such as improving a situation. This rune is combined with gradual development and continuous progress, even slow growth of some changes and transformations. Conversely, movement that seems to block.

BERKANA - Growth, Rebirth, Birch
Berkana, the rune of the life process, another cycle rune, which stands for fertility, which leads both symbolically and actually to growth. Berkana is about the power to influence development and the nature in which it flows into your body. Its action is gentle and penetrating. Scatter the resistance first, then accomplish your work. To make this possible, your wish must be clear and controlled. Conversely, events, or, more likely character aspects distract the growth of new life.
GEBO - a Partnership, a Gift
If this rune is pulled, that is a sign that unity, union or partnership is near. But you are requested, not to throw yourself into this connection.

This advice is important at all levels: in romantic relationships, in commercial things, simply in partnerships of every type.
TYR, TEIWAZ - Warrior Energy, the God Tiu
This is the rune of the spiritual warrior. His fight is always the limiting ego. His will is strengthened by the act, but the warrior outcome, and he always knows that he cannot do anything but hinder himself because the will of heaven will prevail – these are his marks. This rune also contains the energy of the distinction. Patience is the virtue of this rune. You are asked to look inwardly, to dive down to the foundation of your life. If you dedicate your question to a certain case, an idea, a certain way, the Warrior Rune recommends perseverance, even if sometimes endurance is required in the form of patience. What are your priorities? How do you use your energy? The Rune Teiwaz stands for courage and devotion.
EIHWAZ - Defense, Defensive Forces, Yew
During our tests, we gather the strength to ward off, repel blockades and defeat. At the same time we develop an aversion to the pattern of behavior that lead to tense situations in our lives. Patience is the advice of Eihwaz. No hassle, no action or yaw for a desired result is necessary. Perseverance and caution are required. Avoid foreseeable difficulties by doing the right thing. Eihwaz means to see, despite inconveniences and discomforts, growth is still encouraged.
From ancient times the wearing of rings signified a form of magical ‘binding’ to the priesthood, the tribe, to another person or to a higher spiritual authority. The circle of the ring is a traditional symbol of infinity or eternity, the transposition of the magical into the real, tangible world. The materials of which the ring is constructed, plus the wearer’s visualization of the ring’s higher purpose, determine the nature of a ring’s power. All rings were once considered magical or sacred.

When you understand the reason behind wearing rings, you can master their inner power. Then you can use that power to enhance your life experience.
The thumbs in palmistry are about self-control. On the active hand (the right hand if a person’s right-handed) a folded-in thumb shows hesitation in applying oneself to worldly ambitions. On the passive hand, on a more personal level, a bent-inward thumb shows inner conflicts.
If you’re engaged in personal transformation, wear a narrow, silver ring (for higher guidance and strength) with a milled surface (for industry and effort) on the passive hand’s thumb. This will strengthen your resolve and induce greater powers of self-mastery. Any new challenge, be it losing weight or sticking to your morning yoga class will be easier.
The index finger is known to palmists as the ‘mirror’ finger. Its ruler is Jupiter and it’s about self-reflection. A big ring on the active index finger shows self-esteem issues and a frustrated need for power and recognition. This is particularly true if there’s a large gemstone. In portraits of powerful, ruling figures, like Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and Napoleon, large rings are visible on both index fingers.
Tin is the metal of Jupiter, so if you lack self-confidence, wear a ring of base metal on the index finger of your active hand to reinforce and enhance the sense of self. Ensure the ring has no gems and has flat, faceted sides (for modesty, humility and all-around recognition). You’ll feel better immediately. Visualize the kind of personal qualities you want frequently while turning the ring slowly with the finger and thumb of your other hand.
The middle finger is known as the ‘wall’ finger. It’s ruled by Saturn and represents psychological boundaries, lifestyle and value systems. The larger the ring and gemstone is worn on this finger, the more seriously one takes life and the more one wants to fit in and feel secure. Multiple rings on the middle finger on the passive hand are associated with worries about the stability of the family and an obsession with material things.
The metal traditionally associated with Saturn is lead. If you have any concerns in this area of your life, wear a ring made of pewter (which contains lead) on the passive hand’s middle finger. Ideally, get one with a clear, square crystal to bring stability, security, and clarity into your life. Get into the habit of folding the ring-bearing middle finger into the palm and holding it there with your thumb while breathing deeply. This will do wonders to bring balance if things are unstable.
The roots of placing a ring on the third finger in the love-binding ceremony go back to pagan times. Its ruling planet is Apollo, the sun god. In modern palmistry, it’s known as the peacock finger, as it’s about the instinct to display and attract a mate. The Ancient Egyptians and later, the Greeks, believed the vena amoris (the vein of love) made a connection between this finger and the heart.
Wearing a ring here is a self-imposed restriction on the subconscious desire to display and pursue the opposite sex. The ring places restrictions on the heart’s yearnings. The traditional metal associated with Apollo is gold.
If you’re in a love bond, wear a slim gold band here to boost Apollo’s blessing. Get one with a single small sapphire, indicating purity and eternity. If you’re single, the ring to wear is of gold with small different colored gems in a line which indicates the expectation of constant surprise and passion within relationships. In both cases, the rings give a boost to creativity, self-expression and social acceptance. You’ll feel bolder and brighter.
The little digit is ruled by Mercury, the god of communication, wit, commerce and sexuality. It’s called the ‘antenna’ in modern palmistry as it’s concerned with communication at all levels: verbal, signal and sexual. A person bearing more than one ring on the little finger may be inclined to bend the truth, be they in the field of business, education, finance or the media. When the ring on this digit is large, it indicates a desire to communicate more effectively. It’s enormously common for sexually available or sexually curious people to wear a large ring on the little finger. On both sexes, large or multiple rings on the passive little finger signal an absent or difficult relationship with one of the parent figures. This means they may not feel free to openly express feelings in a personal relationship. The multi-ringed antenna digit is endemic in the sex industry. To enhance your verbal skills and renounce any issues in intimacy, wear a small, fine platinum or white gold ring (for absolute purity and clarity) on the passive hand’s little finger. You’ll notice an immediate sense of freedom and openness in your thoughts, speech, and communication.
Now you’re privy to the secret of the rings. Use their powers well!
