Cows, Assets and the Fehu Rune

The cow is an apt symbol for Fehu. Until fairly recently, families in rural Scandinavia would keep a milk cow. It was a steady source of milk for the family. Before refrigeration, much of the milk would be turned into butter or cheese to preserve it. The cow was a necessity, and it was cared for and protected.

A family that had more than one cow could use the extra milk, cheese and butter to sell or trade. In rural areas, milk was a commodity just like carrots, beans, apples or fish. It could be sold or bartered. Milk was money. A family that had more cows had more milk, and thus it was like having more money. This is one way in which cattle represented prosperity.

Cattle still represent prosperity. Cattlemen of the West count their wealth by the number of cattle they own. In fact, asking a man how much cattle he owns is considered as rude as asking how much money he has in the bank. Cattle is as much a commodity as oil, coal or grain.

The Eastern cattle are mostly dairy cows. Again, cows represent units of wealth. The farmerís ability to profit is determined by how many milk cows he owns. More cows mean more milk, and that means more profit. Once again, milk translates to money.

The Fehu Rune represents assets. Its symbol is cattle. By looking at cattle, we can get a good idea of the nature of assets. The symbol may be ancient, but it exists in the everyday world today as an asset. Milk farming and the dairy industry are but one manifestation of this Rune. They are good examples for illustrating the principles behind wealth, profit and assets.

Absolutely. There is a wealth of truth in that statement that is not only literal but figurative as well. Hence the term Stock Market. What assets do you think are being traded? Paper?

To me, this rune is the basis of understanding the mystery of the blood. It also represents possession in its base form and could be the most important rune, to the free Germanic people. For without property the man is little more than a slave. As the first rune in the FUTHARK it can also be said to encompass all the others. It is the key to understanding the mystery of the blood and can be used to awaken passion, determination, and fever. All elements of the Germanic spirit and Aryan will.

Fire itself is embodied in this rune as a devourer and cleansing agent. The blood, being the fire of life, provides the vehicle to rid toxins and distribute nutrients and oxygen through out the body and back to the heart. The heart being the first organ to develop after conception,( just 21 days) begins a life long task of regulating the bodies pulse and providing the generation of new blood cells. Take a few minutes to ponder the incredible function and dedication that the heart performs for you daily. Generation, degeneration, and regeneration. Perhaps the secret mystery of Life.

Fehu is the beginning, the first of all. There is no son without the father.
