Aethel is the dipthong “ae”
Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)
An estate is very dear to every man,
if he can enjoy there in his housewhatever is right and proper in constant prosperity
Aethel is the rune for this week, indicating a focus on home, estate, family, ancestors, inheritance, and the wealth and good fortune that surrounds those things. Maybe your home will seem particularly inviting, or perhaps after a great deal of travel and effort, it is time to return, rest and enjoy those comforts of familial space and connection. As the days turn shorter, we come now into Autumn, which is the beginning of many holidays and events where family and friends gather together, in celebration of some event, or another.
