The Mythology of Raidho
This rune is connected with carts, transporting and travelling. Raidho became the rune of those who rode, their nobility and high position in life. Odin’s famous horse Sleipnir could carry him to all of the nine worlds of creation, and this rune may very well be a symbol of Sleipnir. This rune is also connected to the fertility god Frey, king of horses.
Interpretation of Raidho
Raidho shows up in the reading when it is time to connect to your destiny. You might have to reinvent a part of your life. You will travel to a completely new ‘world’. Some will experience astral travel. It is not what you know that will take you further, but who you know. Tread light and don’t put your roots too deep. Make plans for the future. Stay pure in your thoughts, words and actions. Your good intentions are not in vain. People do appreciate you, and they might even follow you on your path. You can be a leader, but not necessarily be lead. You are seeing the light within each person. People with low vibration won’t be able to connect with you, or even find you, see you, know about you. The journey is the destination, so make sure you enjoy your adventures.
