Raidho reversed

Raidho is the letter R

Anglo-Saxon rune poem (from ragweedforge.com)

Riding seems easy to every warrior while he is indoors
and very courageous to him who traverses the high-roadson the back of a stout horse

Raidho reversed signifies challenges in journeys of all kinds, from physical travel, to spiritual travel. Obstacles, traffic, car troubles, road closures, inclement weather are all possibilities for physical travel, while spiritual travel may be plagued by distractions, exhaustion, and perhaps just being unable to get into that right state of mind to do it.

Interestingly enough, this rune was very helpful for me today. I had a journey from where I live, up into the heart of Los Angeles, a long, although short journey. As many people are aware, Los Angeles I known for it’s traffic, especially when it rains, as people seem to freak out about the liquid falling from the sky. Fortunately, I did this reading with plenty of time before I left, and I spent my morning meditation and ritual time, making offerings to Gods of travelers and journeys, with an additional offering left in the crossroads as I journey to my destination. Not only was my trip swift, it was safe and peaceful. Thank you Hermes Diaktoros!

Raidho reversed is the rune of dangerous journeys, or journeys that should be avoided. It can also indicate obstacles to your travels or actions, or the loss of a means of transportation. Check your list (or make one) reconfirm your route and look for obstacles, and maybe reschedule that road trip, until after you have gotten your brakes checked and your oil changed
