Rune Interpretation Cheat Sheet


While this sheet is of my authorship, I can’t claim responsibility for developing the information on this sheet. I cribbed from “The Practical Guide to the Runes” by Lisa Perchel to assemble this. However, the names have been changed to reflect a consistent language, not the polyglot that was in that book.
