The Fehu rune is the first rune of the Elder Futhark, the oldest known runic alphabet used by the ancient Germanic peoples. It is pronounced "feh-oo" or "fay-oo" and represents the "F" sound. The word "Fehu" itself translates to "cattle" or "wealth" in Old Norse. Symbolically, Fehu is associated with concepts of wealth, abundance, and material possessions. In ancient times, cattle were considered a measure of wealth and prosperity, so the rune represents the abundance of resources and the power and value of material possessions. It signifies the capacity to accumulate and distribute wealth, as well as the importance of maintaining a balanced and responsible approach to material resources. Beyond its literal interpretation, Fehu also carries metaphorical meanings. It can represent personal power, success in endeavors, and the ability to manifest one's desires. It encourages a mindset of abundance, reminding individuals to recognize and appreciate the wealth and opportunities that surround them. In divination or runic readings, the Fehu rune can indicate financial gain, prosperity, or the arrival of material resources. It suggests that favorable circumstances are likely to arise, and it encourages the individual to use their resources wisely and generously.
