Mine wasn't necessarily a guess. I only substituted one letter. Otherwise, those are the English equivalents of all of the rune stones presented on
the parchment. STD HAS AN ELF might be a code for something else though. Or, there's always the possibility that the whole thing is a prank, or a
hoax, which has been orchestrated to keep curious minds occupied.
When we analyze it as if it were a rune casting we get the following. Personal note, this is an extremely
surface level analysis, as I didn't
feel like doing a proper rune casting and full-on interpretation of the runes utilized:
- represents the origin point of the rune alphabet. It is the first rune, so it represents the wealth of creation, and the limitless
potential for all things to manifest in a multitude of variations.
- represents the element of water, and likewise corresponds to both the Shadow Self (Id of psychology) and the Yin of the Tao. On a lower
plane it represents the receptive nature of a person; their ability to listen and receive, hear and hold, and analyze what they are being told, or
- Is a dual-nature rune. On the purely material plane it represents movement, action, travel, or vacations which are fast approaching. On
a more mystical, or spiritual plane it represents the need, and advancement, of forming the bond and link with the Higher Self, spirit, or
- this is the rune of patience, and a lack of change. It indicates that movement is slow, and the formation of desired goals will be
impeded. Instead of panicking, rushing, or losing your head though, this represent a time which needs recuperation, meditation, and observation.
- this rune represents the Sun, and is thusly dedicated to activity, energy, fortune, creativity, inspiration and musings. A burst of
activity and formation are coming about quickly, and now is the time to seek out the heart's desires.
- representing the Great Fires of Creation, and the god Odin. This rune symbolizes the uncovering of secrets, the advancement of
traditions, the inheritance of past generations, and situations of a like manner. Additionally, it also represents getting lost in the self, and
losing sight of the goal.
- represents breakthroughs, revelations, awakenings and all manner of spiritual journey into the true nature of the self. Transitions and
transformations are prevalent in this rune, which parallels Atu XIII: Death, from the Tarot very closely. On a more mundane level Dagaz also
represents dualism: night/day; light/dark; living/dead, etc.
- is the rune of honor, strength, courage, and the faculties of mind; reason, rational, and intelligence. This rune cultivates
experience, and life lessons which are then turned to internal benefit, to help the recipient receive the highest virtues in their daily life.
Again though, the meaning and intended meaning could only ever be known by the one who cast the runes, and created the sigil/amulet/talisman. The
duplication of particular runes makes the interpretation even more difficult, as rune lots often only contain one of each rune stone, making duplicate
runes in a single reading impossible.
