Image finding
« on: June 10, 2017, 09:03:19 AM »
This is going to sound weird, but last night the image of a rune popped into my head.  I would really like to find out what it is and what it is supposed to do.  The problem is there are literally dozens of cultures with runes and I have no idea where to even begin and it could take all day.  I drew it in a paint file and tried to do a reverse search, but that did not help.  Anybody have any ideas?

Another complication is that Nordic runes (and possibly this is true with other types) can be layered to form a compound sigil.  Maybe sharing the pic here would help?

I know the Futhark runes and have worked with bind runes before (that's a sigil made up of multiple runes combined). I could have a look at your design and give you my interpretation of it if it relates to Norse runes.

Not the best, but this is what popped into my head.

Most of it doesn't seem that like the Elder Futhark, though the lines like the less-than symbol < are reminiscent of Kenaz, which can imply fire and masculine energy.

However, the dot usage reminds me of the Younger Futhark. For instance, note the G:

G in the Elder Futhark is Gifu/Gebo, meaning a gift (such as a friendship or a relationship, even). Note the G here:
https://whispersofthewyrd.files.wordpress.com/2016/05/elderfuthark.gif?w=584
It's shaped like an X. However, you don't have the full rune so I'd say it isn't directly relevant.

Do you remember if the upper horizontal line of the shape pointed up or down more? (It looks like it's pointing down slightly). You have Ansuz:

which points down or Fehu, which points up:
https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/0d/69/28/0d69282f7601fb0cfbf1a382e659b53c.jpg

Personally, I'd guess a combination of Ansuz and Kenaz. You don't have a full rune enough for Gifu or Hagalaz.
So you get a blend of 'communication' and 'masculine/fiery drive/energy' from those two combined.

If the upper horizontal line was pointing up more, you might have the shape of Fehu, which is money/wealth. It would either be that or Ansuz.
It (the upper horizontal line) should be parallel with the lower line of Kenaz (the < sign) if it's Ansuz.

Generally dots were used for separating words or I think to do with whether certain runes were voiced in speech. (View them as an alphabet also with esoteric meanings). So that's the closest I can get in terms of meaning.

Here's one similar that someone's created only without Wunjo reversed:

The top line is supposed to be straight.  Really not sure what the heck, if it's an actual existing rune, or if my mind just created it.  All I know is my mind focused on it, my face felt pressure and warmth, and my sinuses which have been bugging me for days felt a lot better, so... *shrugs*

I'd say that doesn't imply a Norse bind rune then. The straight horizontal line isn't typical of it and with the available options, it doesn't seem like it would be a healing rune. However, there are other types of runes. I just don't know them well.
