Lesson 5: Runes & Bindrunes

Lesson 5: Runes & Bindrunes
Like the sigils these are a piece of cake compared to the seals! The only thing you need to have is a chart with the attributes and intents of each of the letters of the magickal alphabet you want to use and you’re good to go. If you familiarize yourself with the chosen alphabet by using it regularly, then after a while you won’t even need the chart. You’ll be able to combine the letters instinctively for the intent needed. 

There are a limitless number of uses for Bindrunes. Practical uses would include talismans for abundance, business, health, home, love, etc.. An interesting personal use would be a talisman with a personalized monogram of a person’s or business’s name.

Making a Bindrune
Every Rune has its own meaning (because it is also a form of written language), intent and energy. By combining certain chosen Runes for their specific energies you can design a Bindrune that will contain considerable powers towards its purpose, whether manifestation of something, protection of its bearer, or healing, or whatever it was you designed it for.

Looking over the Rune list above you will find the Runes you need. For our example we will design a Bindrune for personal protection. The powers of the Runes are most affective when used in a relative sequence of starting Rune, beginning Rune, central Runes, and the two Runes for sealing the energies.

There are two consensus regarding whether to use all the Runes that would apply to your need or only just a few. The first holds to the belief that the Bindrune then holds the energies of anything that could apply to the intent of the Bindrune being designed. The latter opinion is that it will be easier to remember the Runes that went into making the Bindrune. 

I, personally, believe in using all that would apply. The reason being that each of the Runes do then attach their energies and powers to the Bindrune, and these energies coalesce into one. Which is the reason for using a Bindrune in the first place. Also, the point regarding too many Runes being hard to remember is a ridiculous argument, because the reason for making a Bindrune is to have a “new” Rune to work with that is all yours. So all you have to remember is the new Rune, not all those that went into making it!

With that said, let’s make a Protection Bindrune using the following Runes:

Wyrd - Blank rune is the starting Rune, which is placed before the “official” first rune, Fehu, because it is energy at its most basic and must be programmed & controlled by the subsequent Runes. This Rune, since it is blank, has the square as its shape due to its relationship to all four directions and the four elements. This square is then what surrounds, or frames, the Bindrune formed by the other Runes. 

Fehu  should always be the “official” first Rune in the sequence because it is used to expedite any circumstance or situation and to send magickal power to strengthen surrounding Runes toward the desired result.

Thurisaz  is the next in the sequence due to its wielding of the powers of destruction or self-defense. It is power directed by the sheer force of your will.

Kaunaz  Rune protects your valuables and anything you place this Rune on. It also banishes any negative energies coming at you.

Algiz  is another Rune for the purpose of protection because it is the “Hero’s Rune” to protect & defend yourself, loved ones and your possessions. It also repels danger, theft & destructive energies and banishes & diminishes the power of those wishing ill-will toward you.

Berkano  provides protection from an emotional level directed from yourself to what ever the need may be.

Wunjo  should be used as the next to the last Rune to ensure a successful land happy ending to be manifested. This Rune harmonizes & channels energies toward clearly specified intents.

Ing  Binds, fixes, and hold the desired outcome in any situation. It keeps the powers from diminishing in the magickal works you’ve done and prevents you from losing, or being stolen from, that which you’ve worked for.

For ease of being able to see what I’ve done, each Rune is a different color.

Image 3: Fehu Rune

Image 4: Thurisaz Rune

Image 5: Kaunaz Rune

Image 6: Algiz Rune

Image 7: Berkano Rune

Image 8: Wunjo Rune

Image 9: Ing Rune

To come to the arrangement I like, after trying several that I didn’t, the following is how each of the Runes were arranged and adjusted. I made sure to place each in order, so as to keep the continuity of the energies flowing properly.

Image 11: Fehu adjusted

Image 12: Thurisaz adjusted

Image 13: Kaunaz adjusted

Image 14: Algiz adjusted

Image 15: Berkano adjusted

Image 16: Wunjo adjusted

Image 17: Ing unchanged

And this is the final result:

Image 18: Completed Protection Bindrune - colors showing overlaying of each

So, now you know how to go about making a Bindrune of your own. The steps are easy, follow them and you’ll have a Bindrune that is specific to you and your needs and holds your powers combined with those of your chosen Runes.

To review:
1) Review the Runes and their meanings
2) Choose the Runes you’ll use
3) Remember to always use the Blank Rune as your framework around the others
4) Remember to always use the Wunjo & Ing Runes as the final two Runes so you seal in and insure the success of your Bindrune

  1. I added Eihwaz.

    I've been usung the same set or runes for 30 years!

  2. I love using the Runes too! I design Bindrunes for my garden, my car (travel), my purse, the house - everything, basically. I like how they can have so much meaning to you, but without needing explanation to anyone because they're usually not really noticed by anyone. Those that do see them may or may not ask - those that do, I consider it one of those learning moments and something they need to hear about for some reason.

    I would imagine your Rune set are very powerful! I made a set from river stones about 8 years ago. They're my favorite set. :)

    Thank you for commenting - love to hear about the works of others!
