Gaulish Divination

Ueletorunoi

Ueletorunoi is a composition of the Gaulish words Uelet/to see and Runos/Secret. This uses all 18 letters of the Lugano alphabet it was used to record Lepontic inscriptions known from around 140 inscriptions, it is one of five main Northern Italic alphabets derived from the Etruscan alphabet dating from 550 to 100 BC. The Germanic runes probably come from a script belonging to this group. We will get more into this at a later time. The alphabet does not distinguish voiced and unvoiced occlusives.

*Connected to Gaulish Culture. Each one is connected to aspects of Gaulish Culture. So one for the Tribe, or Warband things like that. They are not connected to the gods as I see no reasoning for them to be. You use them to communicate with the gods.

The first part of the divinatory meaning is Positive the second part is a Negative meaning. But there really is no Positive or negative it’s all about the energies around you and being in Intune with your intuition.

The Readings

There are many ways to read the Runoi do that which connects with you. Positive/Negative Now with the reading, if the Runos fall face up it is to be read as positive and face down read as negative, or they can be discarded. One must make that decision before casting the Runos. Always be consistent in your casting. I personally don’t do reverse Runoi as that is a modern concept and I feel that it is about being true to your intuitive skills.

Circular Aspects

Casting them onto your cloth visualize the center being positive and the farther away you get the less positive or the center as having the most direct impact and the farther away less impact. One must first determine the location the Runoi fall in the casting, Is it inside or outside your field. Which Runos is it near and at what angle are they with the others? Also, are they face up or down.

We will get into all this in-depth in a later article, for now, we are focusing on the Runoi themselves.

This has taken a lot of work and it’s for you all to use, if you post them on your site or in Social Media places please make sure to share my link.

In the cold of the dark, we need the fire to give us strength but this fire must come from within. Realizing the need of strength leads us to appreciate the need. This can be a source of salvation. Coming forth into being. Fighting the will leads to the strengthening of it. If we don’t recognize the need for the fire we will look outwards and never find it. This can create a hostile mind frame and that can turn your environment into chaos. That can, in turn, lead you down a path of the least resistance.

It’s a force to help prevent forces that are unwanted from entering the interior of the enclosed spaces and at the same time creating useful energy within the enclosure. It’s the spiritual energy of a Touta clan/tribe. The energy within the enclosure must be harmonious and follow an order of law. It is a give-and-take within the environment of the Touta. It is not connected to the land but the home within. It is well-being and prosperity within the Touta. Customs and order must be paid attention to, so true freedom and a sense of security can be maintained.

It’s the ultimate wisdom to know with death comes life with life comes death. That the cycle is creation and destruction is all around. This is the poetic muse making music and the artist with their paints, the singer singing for creation in its many forms. We sit in ecstasy in a pondering mind state seeking the knowledge and wisdom of the far-away thought the secret. Sometimes we are not meant to know. And if you force this it can create unpleasant consequences. At the same time, this can lead to addictions to the pleasures of the cauldron which will destroy your understanding of it.

(wheel)
(r)

Divinatory Meaning
This is the cycle of universal law. It’s the rhythm of all things. This is also what creates the order of The Touta and other bodies of institutions. It’s the sun, moon, and galaxies dancing their way around. This is a journey of that which is rightfully ordered. This is the wheel going in its direction but it also has a spiral direction that helps us to hone in on a target could be an idea or a goal. We must plan accordingly and prepare our actions to gain experience along our path. Always have good counsel on your path remembering you and the gods are working together. When the natural laws of this are broken it will re-balance itself out, but that can create hard times and form a rough journey in your life. You can become surrounded by people that are offering you bad advice, you can become violent and irritable. Remember this is the rhythm of life and sometimes it goes off the track but don’t become frantic. Good and bad motions are better than no motion.

This is the gift to mankind – Consciousness born. As the night merges with the day and the stars that shine in the in-between are brought together to understand the polar opposites. Known to all who seek it, the light may be found where you least expect it. This is true vision enlightened consciousness. That which becomes out-and-out becomes bidirectional energy simultaneously working with each other in extreme ways. We don’t seek that which is at the center but that that lay on its borders. If you are not prepared for this, it can lead to blindness to your enlightenment.

(the Sun)
(s)

Divinatory Meaning
Seen as a great force of nurturing protective power but also transformative. It shines its light encouraging and giving us guidance for hope. We will always be found and never lost as the light will shed away all illusions of your reality. This is also moving and spinning like the Rota Runos, but unlike Rota this Runos forces fixed energies to your journey or goals. This is always forcing us to look within for our answers. But if you do not trust in Rota you will be looking outside yourself for your answers and guidance. You become gullible to others and follow them or end up working for their goals. You lose the light which will make you confused about your sense of purpose and direction. This Runos can be a teacher.

Trexos


(most powerful)
(t/d)

Divinatory Meaning
This is a deep distant force that keeps the separation of the realms so manifestation in the created space can be known. This is an independent cosmic order to occur. This is faith, loyalty, trust, and justice that can be seen in difficult cycles. A careful view of the facts will lead to victory if you have been wise. Sometimes self-sacrifice is needed for the success of your goals to manifest. We must practice faithfulness and loyalty. This Runos can also work by making you focus too much on the details of your goals which can paralyze your actions. Resulting in too much talk and never doing. This can be an academic person or a warrior.

Keywords
