Fehu is the first rune in the Futhark. So naturally this is the rune that you typically begin with when studying the runes to any extent, for whatever purpose. As a result, most sources of information for the Futhark runes have common meanings ascribed to them for many different reasons. This however can cause problems for people who find that the meaning/s ascribed to that rune in a particular source don’t gel very well.
For me this has been very much the case with Fehu for a while now. In the book that I use, only a single conceptual meaning is applied to each rune. For Fehu the conceptual meaning was ‘Wealth’. The last time that I tried to meditate with Fehu as my focus I found that I couldn’t focus properly on Fehu because for me, wealth is just not something that is important to me. Certainly, its something that I enjoy and/or would make use of, but over all ‘wealth’ is just not a priority for me – presuming that I interpret wealth to mean riches, rather than just generic money/income.
Yesterday though, I found a source (a website that I really need to find again and provide the link for) that had ‘new beginnings’ as one of the meanings ascribed to Fehu. Tonight I found this concept to work much better as a way of meditating on Fehu.
