Dagaz is a rune of blessings and awakening, and spiritual breakthrough. I love this poem written and narrated by Sigha Manning, and thought I would share it with the Tribe this morning. Dagaz is the rune of daylight clarity as opposed to nighttime uncertainty. Look to the dawn, which will always come, bringing with it the brightness and optimism of Sowilo, the sun. There is always hope beyond the uncertainty, look towards the dawn. Rune Poem Written, Video Editing and Narrated by Sigha Manning
Learning the runes is not just about a bunch of letters, it is also about the mythology around them. Its important to understand this in order to understand the individual runes themselves. So who better to do "An introduction to the basic facts, sources, gods, and beliefs of Norse mythology" than Dr. Jackson Crawford. Dr Crawford is Instructor of Nordic Studies and Nordic Program Coordinator at the University of Colorado Boulder (formerly UC Berkeley and UCLA). He is a historical linguist and an experienced teacher of Old Norse, Modern Icelandic, and Norwegian. Enjoy.
Dr. Jackson Crawford is an Old Norse specialist and translator teaching at the University of Colorado (formerly UC Berkeley and UCLA).So I thought who best to give you a little late night linguistic lessons on how to pronounce the names of the Elder Futhark runes.
