Upright and Reversed Perthro: Different Meanings & Energies

Updated on:


Written by: Tina Caro

Are you studying runes and you are curious to know more about the Perth or Perthro rune? This is the article you need to read to get to know this rune a little bit more.


In runic divination, the Perthro rune holds distinct meanings and energies depending on whether it appears in an upright or reversed position.

Upright Perthro symbolizes mystery, hidden knowledge, and the concept of fate and destiny. It signifies that there are elements of a situation yet to be revealed and suggests a sense of inevitability in certain life events. Additionally, it relates to games of chance and luck.

Reversed Perthro suggests the unveiling of hidden information or secrets and encourages individuals to take an active role in shaping their destiny. It advises caution in games of chance, emphasizing the importance of careful consideration and decision-making.

Interpretations of Perthro in a rune reading consider its orientation and the specific context, guiding individuals toward understanding hidden aspects, fate, and the unfolding of events in their lives.

What does the Perthro rune mean?

The Perthro rune means secret, novelty, and initiation. This rune more than any other embodies joy and exuberance. If in the course of divination, it finds itself in a position of relevance, it could recognize excessive debauchery in all respects.

While individuals who exhibit many Perthro characteristics undoubtedly guarantee a cheerful and easy-going company, this doesn’t mean they can always be relied upon. It is not necessary to be taken by surprise, thanks to the relaxed and careless atmosphere, by beautiful words and tempting proposals, nor to divulge secrets and other family matters, in order not to incur any risks.

Many people then believe that destiny is already written and that it is not in their power to change it.

Perthro, on the other hand, warns that this is not the case: destiny is the result of the set of decisions and choices we make during our life.

With Perthro, we find ourselves dealing with the feminine value of initiation, Death, and Regeneration. The initiate dies and is reborn, he learns the mysteries and is the bearer of a new consciousness, he is the one who overcomes the profane condition of the individual who, up to that moment, has ignored the sacred.

Order The Reading

The Eleusinian mysteries, like those of Osiris, whose Orifice cults are matriarchal mysteries and differ essentially from the masculine and patriarchal mystery, there are in fact many myths in which we find the theme of the girl kidnapped and sacrificed to a monster or a negative figure, a union that it expresses a hieros gamos where marriage is always a mystery but also a mystery of death. The masculine mystery is linked to the heroic struggle against evil; the primordial feminine mysteries are essentially mysteries of birth and death.

The goddess linked to this rune is Frigg, wife of Odin, also called Lady of Heaven or of the Gods, she shares the Hlindskialf seat with her husband and has at her disposal the abode in Fensalir, one of the regions of Asgard. From the name of the goddess, various words have been derived over time such as fria, “a candidate for marriage” in Swedish, frja, “to love” in Icelandic, and priya, “wife” in Sanskrit.

Odin-and-Frigga s
Odin and Frigg

Wrapped in a cloak of hawk feathers, she can travel in the sky, and is endowed with the gift of clairvoyance, assists couples, and helps sterile women and those still innocent who do not know acts of love. She assisted women in labor and tried to soothe their pains and sufferings. Perthro is associated with the Great Mother and all the symbols associated with her.

The rune resembles a door, a cave, a container, or a cauldron that welcomes inside or releases its contents. Perthro is the Grail, the Cauldron of Rebirth.

The Perthro rune extraction indicates that the cycle, which began with Jeraa, is over, the seed has remained in the soil long enough and is ready to be born and grow. A regeneration is taking place from all points of view; it announces a period in which we feel many things change, day after day we learn new things, and we grow spiritually.

You need to have a little patience and wait for the process to complete to feel renewed, at ease, serene, and balanced. You are free from any burden, from the ghosts of the past, and from the fear of death; you can rejoice and laugh, together with friends and loved ones.

It is a new day, a new beginning. Perthro is fun, play, destiny, success, luck, rebirth, problem-solving, and occult knowledge.
