could you guys offer some advice on bind runes as they have quite captured my intrest.

on the site mentioned above in mentions a ritual to be performed whilst inscribing runes, would you use the same ritual(or a variation on the same theam) or a complatly different one when inscribing a Bindrune on an object.

the reason i ask is (and i hiope i have the theory right here) because i have a problem with spenind money a little too freely and i'm usually skint befor next payday comes around.

would a Bindrune combining Fehu (representing earned income) & Nauthiz  (representing restriction, Resistance leading to strength and determination)
inscribed on my wallet help me to hold onto my money better?
 and sould it look somthing like this

Hmm... I am certainly not an expert on bindrunes, but as far as spellcasting goes I'd be a little hesitant to place something like what you described on your wallet.  Combining a spell with the properties of "restriction" and "earned income" could accidentally backfire and result in a reduction (or loss!) of income!

It sounds like what you want is enough cash to last you from payday to payday and to cover all your needs.  Perhaps something phrased in a positive manner ("abundance"  "wealth" "sufficiency", etc.) rather than a negative ("restriction") would work better for you.

Mrs. S.

I'm going to agree with Mrs. Sullivan. I'd say that's the wrong route to take. I think it might backfire in a rather spectacular way. It's that part about 'Resistance leading to strength and determination' which gives me pause. Say, you lose your wallet. You'll manage to survive, through *cough* strength and determination... and you won't be spending money out of your wallet... but it's not what you want, either.

Perhaps... Eihwaz is more appropriate. Or something focusing on wisdom.

Looks like a good way to combine them.

You might also like to try Austin Osman Spare's sigil magic (similar sort of concept to bind-runes).

The ritual should include carving the runes on the wallet while focussing on your intent ("I will have enough money left by the end of the month") and then I would draw the runes with a magical tool and then project them into the ones on the wallet.  You could also ask a relevant deity to be your ally in your endeavour.

Obviously do whatever you do to create sacred space in which to do this (depends on your preferred tradition).

Introduction type thing...

I've been Wiccan since 1991, and Unitarian since 2006 (yes I am both at the same time).

Occult interests: runes, Giordano Bruno, memory theatre, Jack Parsons, Wiccans past and present, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Taoism, alchemy.

I like reading about the Western Mystery Tradition but am not drawn to do rituals in that system.

Steamy interests: science/speculative fiction, mad scientists, alchemy, re-enactment, gadgetry, tools, weaponry, steam engines and industrial archaeology, alternative history, social history, occult history, dressing-up, botany and 19th century botanists, bluestockings, Pre-Raphaelite and Impressionist art.

I would like to apply to join the Esoteric Order of the Brazen Dawn.

The Wiccan/Unitarian affiliation is
very common here in the States,
these days.

Time was, the Swedenborgian/
Spiritualist churches were the
typical secondary affiliation
hereabouts.

It's not so common in the UK, but there are quite a lot of Unitarian Earth Spirit Network people.

Apparently there is a small Swedenborgian group in Bristol, but they are also few and far between.

The Witchcraft movement here in
the States went hand-in-hand with
the Spiritualism, Suffrage and
Abolition movements in New York
State.

It is no coincidence that the oldest
Spiritualist communities in the US -
Lily Dale, New York and Cassadaga,
Florida - are at the northern and
southern termini, respectively, of
the Underground Railroad, or that
Lily Dale and Hydesville (home of
the Fox Sisters) are in such close
proximity to Seneca Falls (site of
the first Women’s Rights convention).

Many of the witches that I knew
back in the '60s were still getting
ordained by Spiritualist churches,
which enabled them to act as legal
clergy in their communities and
perform such services as marriage,
as well as providing a slightly more
user-friendly backdrop for their
communications with the souls of
the recently and not-so-recently
departed, as well as with Deities
of various sorts.

The Spiritualist / Swedenborgian
community is also responsible for
giving Wicca the term 'Summerland' -
first used in 1851 by Andrew Jackson
Davis in his book, The Great
Harmonia
, and in the title of his
A Stellar Key to Summerland,
1868 :

I love researching the occult myself, including the darker parts of it. If anyone wants me to look something up I will devote some time to it if I am interested, but either way do not be afraid to ask.

Obviously do whatever you do to create sacred space in which to do this (depends on your preferred tradition).

That's an aesthetically pleasing way to combine your runes. *Nod* It'll work well.

As to ritual... it can get fairly elaborate, but it really doesn't have to be. The Runes are a serious business, but the Norse were a practical people and the Gods will understand if you don't put on your sunday clothes and start burning candles and incense.

A simple way to empower them would be to, first individually, trace each of the carved runes with saliva on your finger, concentrating on their meaning and purpose. Then the Bindrune as a whole. It could be as simple as that.

You could also take the time to invoke a God/Goddess. If you were to invoke a God or more, or some local or personal spirits, you would do it before tracing the first rune so that they're present and with you. The Heathen in me(which can be at odds with some wiccan practices from time to time;)) says it would be appropriate to have something for them to drink. Mead or Wine or Beer would be preferred. Odin is an appropriate choice for empowering Runes, but not necessarily the only one.

If that's not enough, then perhaps take the time to read through this: http://sunnyway.com/runes/runeset.html it's an essay on making a runeset for divination, but the principles could be used elsewhere. I don't rightly disagree with anything in there, except perhaps that runes need to be red or made exclusively in blood. The most of it seems rather superfluous to me but I'm a simple person when it comes to this and what I would do is outlined in that first simple method I mentioned. Anyways, it's a good example of how deeply involved/complicated such a thing could be. If it would give you more confidence in the power of them, go through all the pomp and ceremony.


And as for Process Man and Great Big Sea: Cheers. I thought the song, and particularly that verse, was excellently appropriate for Steampunk.

so its pretty much a case of is creating an environment and inscribing the runes in such a way as to focus and channel my person energy (for want of a better phrase) into the piece? rather than following a set "do this when inscribing runes" ritual.

also on a (slightly) related note, how are numbers represented in runes, i want to start putting dates on the ointments/salvs/tinctures etc i make and rather than using english or roman numerals i was thinking of using runes

Yes I thought so, nice to know for definite though.

Also the system of correspondences comes from Swedenborg.

Thanks for the interesting references.

Also the system of correspondences comes from Swedenborg.

I always find it puzzling when I hear
that, because there are enormously
elaborate systems of correspondence
in evidence long before his time
(Swedenborg lived from 1688-1772),
from the Greek Magical Papyri on
through the Picatrix and the various
Clavicula of Solomon.

For example :
