Zodiac signs have been used for decades, centuries even, to assist us in defining who we are. Putting into words the thoughts we cannot quite capture about our essence has led many to consult their Zodiac sign whenever possible. But, what if there was more? More information. More detail. Just…more. Read further to discover how runes can add more depth to who you are. Harness the combined power of the Runes AND the Zodiac to become more….you!
Which Runes Have the Best Influence on Your Zodiac Sign
Runes have ancient roots, like many other Divination tools. As with Zodiacs, runes have connections to the planets and different seasons of the year. As there are 24 runes, there are two that fall within each Zodiac sign. These runes can further assist each sign on their personal journey in this life.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Aries is connected to the runes Uruz and Fehu. These runes speak to the strength that is an Aries.
Uruz is the rune of strength and growth. It connects Aries further to their depth and personal power in this life, as well as their unbridled potential to make this world theirs. Take that bull by the horns. It may not be easy, but when did that ever stop you?
The second rune in Aries is Fehu. This rune speaks to abundance and fulfillment. Fehu plays to Aries' competitiveness and their need for onward progress. Keep it up! This rune is there to assist that momentum!
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Bringing in Taurus are the runes Thurisaz and Ansuz. These runes add to the movement of Taurus’ path and their grounded Earthy-ness.
Thurisaz is steadfast and contemplative. It advises you to deepen your thoughts of self and observations of your past. It drives your already grounded spirit even further. It is strengthening and eye-opening.
Ansuz is another rune that heeds self-reflection. While not a power-driven sign, this rune opens Taurus up to curiosity with a rationalization for what power can do within their lives.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Gemini calls in Raidho and Kauna as their runes. These are eloquent in their dance with the sign of Gemini. No other sign quite knows how to be two separate entities within oneself. Gemini, when understood and on their chosen path, can be powerful two-gether.
Raidho is a flowing rune, a rune that has an end goal. That end goal is a perfect union. Beginning with two sides, two entities, and working toward the goal of the perfect union is, to some, the highest of Gemini’s enlightenment. Raidho is here to assist toward that enlightenment.
Kauna is a rune of knowledge and curiosity. Here to satiate the Twins' burning need to know, this rune is the torch Gemini should carry on their life path. Illuminate your desires and consistently add to your arsenal of information.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
The two runes that call to Cancer are Wunjo and Gebo. These runes offer assistance more than add to information. They enhance your path by lending a hand when needed.
Wunjo is a rune of joy and prosperity. It will further enable Cancer as they hone their emotions towards those that need it. Wunjo gives support and energy to those who willingly give their support and energy. With this rune, a Cancer will never feel depleted for being their highest emotional self.
Gebo adds to Cancer through enhanced gifts and partnership. It adds strength to Cancer as they care for their family, friends, and tribe. Gebo also sheds light on the possibility of a partnership with the higher self, your true self. Gebo adds support on whatever true path you embark on.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
The runes that connect to Leo are Hagalaz and Nauthiz. Both these runes are powerful and potentially destructive in nature, hence the connection to the always highly visible Leo.
Hagalaz is the rune of destruction, an uncontrolled tempest in nature. Not entirely unlike Leo. A force to be reckoned with, Hagalaz offers mutual energy to assist in breaking the obstacles that seem to constantly be in front of Leo. As they match their energy, not much can withstand their turbulence.
Nauthiz is a symbol of fire in the runes. This rune calls for growth under pressure or tension. It offers its strength and energy to Leo as they are tested. Nagathiz is similar to a bolt of lightning striking Thor’s hammer, adding to the power that is already there.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Let’s face it...Virgo most definitely is the runes Isaz and Jera. Both self-reflecting and thought-provoking, these runes scream what a Virgo truly embodies.
Isaz is the rune of internal and external assessment. It is the rune of pause and reflection. What more could a critical thinking, systematic sign as for. Isaz offers its energy to Virgo to take a moment and double-check their already deep consideration. Take one more breath and look again. All still how you want it? Then make that move.
Jera is a rune of perseverance and patience. Usually compared to tending a garden, Jera gives its energy to Virgo through added support with consistent movement. It walks Virgo through times of stagnation and shows them how taking small steps is still progression.
Libra (September 23 - October 23)
Eihwaz and Perthro are the runes connected to Libra. Both speak to the highest Libra self and lend their abilities to guiding, not forcing.
Eihwaz is a rune of persistence and motivation. That ‘get up and try again’ Libra notion is exactly what this rune depicts. Ever evolving to their situations, no sign is as malleable as a Libra. Eihwaz is there to add to the energy needed to adjust correctly. Patience is sometimes what Eihwaz would caution, as Libra cannot be so forthcoming to change for everything. Take another look. Are there consequences to the decision that may have been overlooked? Eihwaz is there to say both, “stay calm and wait” and “now is the time, MOVE!”
Perthro is a rune of intense introspection. Sometimes associated with an Eagle or Phoenix, this rune is above the human sphere. True evolution to a higher self is what this rune is wanting to assist with. Renewal or rebirth. Take this rune and dive deeply into who you truly are! It will guide you.
Scorpio (October 24 - November 22)
The ever-elusive Scorpio is connected to runes Sowilo and Algiz. As most runes add power and energy to different aspects of their connected signs, these runes are truly weapons for a Scorpio’s arsenal.
Algiz is a rune of protection, a shield. It is a rune of divine channeling. As a Scorpio walks the line between the world of life and death, this rune provides not only a defense but heightened energy to the different worlds. To many, this can look dark and negative. As Scorpio knows, it is anything but. The path Scorpio walks is deep and uncomfortable. Most would flee from the things Scorpio yearns to know.
Sowilo is a rune of intensity and victory. It gives energy to one of Scorpio’s deepest desires, true wholeness. Not from humanity’s perspective, but from a deeply founded individuality and need to be exactly who you are. Cannot quite grasp at that identity? Use Sowilo to add a little more depth. It will guide you through.
Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21)
Berkan and Tiwaz are the runes that assist Sagittarius. Both these runes are powerful for self-energy. Much like the Sagittarius, these runes focus on growth, birth, and new experiences.
Berkan is a rune of renewal and rebirth (or possibly new birth). It is a rune that may seem more appropriate with a different sign but, like Sagittarius, it is right where it needs to be when it needs to be there. Berkan gives its energy to Sagittarius for the development of self, new beginnings, and new experiences.
Tiwaz is the Warrior rune. This rune was literally painted on the body or weaponry of warriors prior to battle. Today, the rune is seen more as a rune for a spiritual warrior. Self-reflection and growth. The rune gives strength to rid oneself of the old, dead, or unneeded aspects of life. This rune calls for patience while doing this work though. It speaks to laying a sturdy foundation prior to wielding its power to create a new you.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
The two runes for Capricorn are Ehwaz and Mannaz. These runes add energy to the already steadfast, deliberate zodiac. These runes add energy to the already steadfast, deliberate zodiac.
Ehwaz is signified by a horse. It is the rune for movement and progress, albeit slow and steady. As technical and calculated as a Capricorn is, this rune adds to that energy with advice that, even though it may be slow, movement in the right direction is still movement in the right direction. This rune heeds that tilling the ground properly or making a strong foundation will add to the harvest or structural soundness of the building (or self).
Mannaz is the Self rune. The first. This rune gives energy to the development of self and major growth. It speaks to Capricorn’s structure. Allow this rune to guide you as you move into who you are and form the needed boundaries with the outside world.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 19)
Laguz and Ingwaz are the two runes that connect to Aquarius. As these runes assist in the path Aquarius chooses, their ability to evolve is just as fluid as Aquarius themselves.
Laguz is the rune for flow and water. Ever giving of its energy to the ebb and flow of life, Aquarius would do well to harness this energy as they grow into their paths through their originality and vision.
Ingwaz, the rune of new beginnings and a time of respite. This rune offers space for the Aquarius to evolve unencumbered by restriction, either from the world or from the self. Inguz offers a chance to breathe and come back to oneself while also making steady forward momentum.
Pisces (February 20 - March 20)
For Pisces, Othala and Dagaz offer their energy. As Pisces is a transformative sign that is heavy in emotional turbulence, these runes can offer levels of grounding that may be needed on the path.
Othala is the rune of separation and inheritance. While it can mean literal, physical inheritance, for Pisces, most times it is a means of spiritual inheritance and connection to the deeper levels of oneself. Separation can mean a form of ending relationships or it can mean the shedding of one old self in place of the newer you. Othala offers energy to Pisces during these journeys and assists in guiding through the muck that comes from such awakenings.
Dagaz is a rune of transformation and breakthrough. As the final sign of the zodiac, this Rune is perfectly placed as Pisces moves through to the next phase. Dagaz’s transformation energy comes from within. The world and the outside influences fall away as Dagaz energizes Pisces to reach their higher path.
Can you see it? The power here! The grand coupling perfectly assists the signs with their paths on this Earth. Runes and Zodiac signs are perfect matches. The yin and yang of divination. Neither predicts your future, they take your hand and guide you to who you are truly meant to be!
