Most easily pronounced (RYE-tho), the fifth rune of the Elder Futhark is commonly associated with a wagon. In deeper understanding, Raidho represents a journey, a physical movement from one place to another. Within the realm of its preceding runes, Raidho is the rune that represents the actions taken to produce an outcome. It is often said among Germanic vitkis (rune magicians) that the journey to an event is just as important as the event you are attending. This is prevalent in many old Germanic stories as well as many Scandinavian and Icelandic Sagas. Many things happen on a travelled road and one interacts with many travellers.
Ponder your journeys and take note in what directions you have travelled and whether you are, indeed, on the right journey for what you intend to accomplish.
