Also known as the rune for money, wealth, good fortune, abundance, success, and luck, Fehu represents the F sound in the Futhark alphabets. Its name means "wealth", which is often interpreted as "sheep" or "cattle".
Fehu is known as an indicator of wealth and symbolizes cattle or sheep. Before the introduction of money, herds of cattle were the measure of wealth among ancient peoples.
So when this rune is found in the future position, a profitable time lies ahead. However, just as the ancients sacrificed one of their herds over and over again to show the gods that they were grateful for their good fortune, it is equally important that you receive the gifts of Fehu with humility.
The rune also suggests that one should take care of the possessions that are already in your possession and that one should save one's resources for the times when the warmth of the comforting fire is cooled by icy blast of winter.
Even if one feels that the comfort of Him or Her is gone, one should try to take the opportunity to ensure that the happy state continues. Conversely, when one feels the bite of poverty, Fehu promises that the time will soon come for you to become prosperous once again.
Aside from these material concerns, the appearance of Fehu can also signify fertility, birth, and new beginnings of all kinds. Likewise, as the "Song of Odin" says, when you are in misery or sorrow, the rune Fehu will bring maternal comfort, which is one of the most precious things in the world.
Immaterially Fehu kisses our awake spirit, she is the source of our thoughts and ideas. It is allowed to bubble and bring forth many new impulses. No stagnation - constant liveliness in our being.
Fehu is also the rune of selfless abundance. So act for the good of all and not for pure self-interest. See to it that all life flows - remains a cycle.
If you succeed, this abundance will carry you and give you the strength and courage to help other people.
A reversal of fortune, resulting in the loss of something valuable, is likely when this rune is reversed.
The association of Fehu with wealth and property suggests that this loss will involve a material possession, but it may also refer to the departure of a loved one or close friend.
However, since the basic nature of Fehu is nurturing, the loss will be made up over time. Tradition also says that the reversed Fehu rune can refer to problems with conception or fertility in general.
