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, the rune of home, estate, inheritance, family and ancestors (phew) is an indicator of staying close to home, and enjoying the environment around you. Put off any long distance travel, take a break from work, and connect with your personal and immediate environment and family. Part of the understanding of family is blood, and you might do well to focus on your blood and who and what you are connected to by that blood. Not only physical blood, but your spiritual blood as well.
