Raido -- ability to control, take initiatives, put things in order, be the boss, move or remove things, direct magickal energies where needed

Gebo -- reconciles two opposed or complementary forces; use to bind or to give blessings or curses

Wunjo -- realize true will, wishing; combines well with Raido (ability to control)

Isa -- defense by blocking; that is, places barriers in the path of opponent or competitor

Jera -- creates positive, lasting change in a situation; works well in all matters involving time

Eihwaz -- use in situations that demand an outgoing, go-out-and-get-it response, such as searching for a job or an apartment

Pertho -- use in regression work; can put you in touch with the Norns

Algiz -- invoke divine protection, acts as shielding device, especially in working where backlash is a consideration; can be applied to the four corners as a protective sigil, much like a pentagram, but with a more defensive effect

Sowulo -- contributes strength to any healing spell; reinforces other runes with solar energy; centers and directs working

Laguz -- sorcery, occult; can use to attract love; if projected between the eyes of a person making a request, a positive reply will be more likely (probably wouldn't work if you asked a bank manager for a million dollars, but would be useful when asking for a pay raise!)

Inguz -- use in binding; also makes a great doorway to the astral, so project onto an imaginary door or curtain, for pathworking or astral travel

Othila -- establishing, centering, and "earthing" a working down to the physical plane; use to invoke Odin; creates a sense of belonging and togetherness in group workings and binds people together in a common goal
