    The real question is, why did Ralph Blum put a blank rune on the backs of all the other runes too? Did he think we wouldn't notice?

    yes good point, so remember all of you that use the blank rune, if doing a reading and the blank rune is drawn, before spending 10 + mins describing the blank rune check the otherside of the rune just in case.

    reply about blank rune

    The blank rune a none valid run.

    Its blank and blank is its answer.

    When the rune petro, perth is carved as a symbol on a rune it signifies fate. which is what it is and is Linked to the norns. This is the fate rune linked to

    Urd past,

    Verdandi present,

    Skuld the future.
    It is the matrix of the thread of karma being woven by fate. By destiny itself. From the past into the present and beyond.

    I thought perth represented something hidden a secret matter, an initiation of some kind, intuition (kind of like the high priestess in the tarot) not destiny or fate (which is more the wheel of fortune in the tarot).

    Perthro is tied to fate and is something hidden. Each decision we make, we are casting our lot cups and making a decision which is fate which is something hidden. As for the blank rune, it is a somewhat new invention. It has no place in the Elder or Younger Runes, unless you want to keep it as a backup for when you lose one.

    Yes your absolutely right I have checked in one of pennicks books and just recieved a copy of futhark by thorsson and they all concur with you. Sorry my mistake. Why did blum then create the blank rune for fate, destiny if peorth already represented that?

    IO think it was invented to better conform to the wiccan idea of divination.

    Runes were, first and foremost, an alphabet. A blank rune would be like the spacebar.

    Also, rune readings were often done by casting staves on the ground and seeing what, if any, runes were formed by how they lay. A "blank rune" reading would be impossible.

    There is no historical evidence that runemasters of old ever used a blank rune. It's self-evident because a rune is a symbol, not the token that carries it. Have you ever seen a blank symbol? Of course not, that's an oxymoron.

    The Blank Rune sometimes also is called "Odin's Rune". Also complete false. Like the Wyrd Rune would be Perthro, Odin's Rune would be Ansuz. Having a blank with such meanings is pointless and repetitive.

    The three Ættir are balanced and equal - three rows with eight in each set.

    In the history of using the Runes, a dot ( · ) or two ( : ) was placed between words formed. You wouldn't and could not assign a meaning to the ' ' between words. A blank rune makes no sense, no matter what angle you look at it.





















    I dont think Ralph Blum did make the blank rune up as I have come accross a book that pre dates blums book of runes and this book uses a blank rune. Also in his book blum states that he uses the 24 elder futhark runes and a later inovation the blank rune.

    That is "interesting to know". What would be the name of that book you dicovered the "blank Rune" in. And, who was the Author?
    My dear Wife is great on Book searches. And I would like to find a book that would put this Controversy to rest. I had, myself, always heard that "Blum made up the Blamk Rune". But, if there is definitive proof otherwise, it would surely put the rumors to rest.

    Please let us know if you can come up with the Title and Author, if you would. Thanks, for your help in putting this all to rest.

    There is no such thing as a "Blank Rune"!

    We should kill this topic and only refer newbies to this thread when they are not knowing.
