This rune represents the “vehicle” (or method) that we use in order for us to achieve an object or goal. Raidho allows us to channel our energies in an effective way so that these energies flow in a manner that will help us obtain our goal. However to use this rune to it’s full power we must know how to place ourselves in the “right place” at the “right time.”

Raido can mean wheel, ride, or travel, but it also has a deeper meaning. Riding a horse includes both movement and direction. A journey can be long and arduous, requiring planning, foresight, determination, and fortitude. Raido can therefore refer to the journey of life, or to a spiritual quest. Raido might also mean transport or communication, such as delivering or receiving a message, wise counsel, or the wheel of life.

Recognize that everything comes in cycles and that by following them you will progress quickly and efficiently. Align your lifestyle to the seasons and honor the turning of the year. Embrace hard times knowing that the harder it is now, the easier it will get in the future. Everything has its opposite, and challenges bring equal and opposite rewards. Life and change continue and we must always go on. We will eventually end up where we began, but on a higher level and with a better perspective. The journey never really ends.

Reverse Meaning
Be particularly attentive to personal relationships. At this time reconciliations are not forthcoming. In fact any pressure at this time could see a fracturing of said relationship. The negatives in your life will actually be opportunities being redirected. Union and reunion being the final destinations.
