Wow. There's a bird flying toward a combined futhark/horoscope circle but that's really just scratching the surface of what's going on here.

Runes and Astrology: Symbol and Starcraft in the Northern Tradition

by Nigel Pennick Author

The runes were more than just an alphabet, but also a system of symbols used to gain insights into the cosmos and our place within it. In Runes and Astrology, Nigel Pennick explores the ancient Northern Tradition's use of runes to understand the natural world and the cycles of time beginning with the  eight seasonal festivals celebrated as the wheel of the year. He then looks at the 24 runes of the Elder Futhark, the oldest runic alphabet, and their relationship to the planets, stars, seasons, and months, as well as their elemental and color associations. There are charts and calculations used to determine which rune is the primary influence on a particular day, week, month, season, or year. He also explores the concept of runic astrology, and shows how the runes can be used to create birth charts and horoscopes. There's so much information here that you could say that not getting this book would totally rune your day!
