3 Elder Futhark Runes for a Family [& How to Use Them]

Updated on:


Written by: Tina Caro

Our family is one of the most important things for us. It is the very first reality where we start exploring ourselves, experience things, and learn how to communicate and connect with others.

How many times have you wanted to have a better relationship with your family? Maybe you have some old issues anchored to the past or you need some energy related to your family coming alive and guiding you when you feel a bit lost.

Did you know that there are some runes that are great to help you reestablish a wonderful relationship with your family members?

That’s why I want to share with you what the best Elder Futhark runes for a family are. Let’s begin.


Elder Futhark runes offer a meaningful way to strengthen family bonds and foster a harmonious home environment.

Several runes, including Ingwaz, Othala, Berkana, Kenaz, Wunjo, Gebo, and Ansuz, are associated with family, creativity, happiness, partnerships, and wisdom.

These runes can be incorporated into the home by carving them onto objects, meditating on their meanings, or including them in family rituals.

Placing runic symbols in shared spaces or using them as a focal point during family interactions can help enhance unity and well-being within the family.

It’s important to remember that the effectiveness of these practices may depend on your belief and intention.

The best Elder Futhark runes for family

Othala: (family assets, heritage)

Othala rune symbolizes the enclosure that delimits both spiritual and material properties and innate qualities. It is the power to obtain and predict favorable answers to all questions concerning one’s possessions, family interests, or social life.

Turned up, it can mean a loss of property or exclusion from a community. It can also indicate disputes relating to inheritances or bequests, or a sudden request for the repayment of a loan. In any case, Othala upside down indicates a problem that not even money or an inherited position can solve.

Before we continue

Working with runes takes skill and patience and isn’t recommended in most cases. I provide these “do it yourself” articles for educational purposes, but it is strongly recommended that you consult a divination expert such as Mystic Amber and allow us to do the work for you.

This way you know it’s being done by someone experienced and knowledgeable and we’re also always here to answer questions about your reading and provide follow-up at no additional charge.

Berkana (feminine energy)

Berkana rune has many different meanings. It refers to the mother, to that strong connection with your mother, or with a motherly figure in your life. Berkana can make us reflect on the concepts of purification and the awakening of the subtle feminine energies.

Berkana is the deep perception of our soul that grows inside us and that asks for our attention, asks for the care and nourishment that only we can give it.


Inguz: (continuity of life, development, progress)

Inguz can be compared to the DNA chain that contains all the information necessary for the creation of a new life. It heralds the completion of a favorable period and the beginning of another better one. It can also mean the realization of a project you have been dedicated to all your life.

In any case, the extraction of the Ingwaz rune indicates the possibility that something favorable will happen that could change your existence. It also represents family union and lineage.

When to use them?

You can use them when you feel like your family needs a little bit of energy, love, and positivity. You can use them when you are dealing with some family issues and you need to bring peace and calmness between you and other family members. You can even use them to get started and attract wonderful positive values into your brand new family.

How to use them?

Don’t forget to use these runes in their upright positions to let the right energy spread all over you and your family!

Here are some ideas:

Keep them with you during a family reunion

If you need some guidance and peace and to keep the “family” energy alive, you can keep it with you or, even better, wear it as a necklace to feel its energy surrounding you and your loved ones.

Use it for spells and rituals

If you cast a spell to bring clarity, strengthen your family connections, banish some negativity, or to solve some legal issues and or simply if you decide to cast a specific spell to boost a specific aspect of your family life, you can use these runes to give you the necessary energy to make it happen and for quicker, stronger results!

Create a sigil

You can create a family sigil using the word representing the rune you chose and display it on your altar or bring it with you wherever you go!
