Raidho is one of the most popular runes and it has so many different messages we could cherish and use to start living a more fulfilling, happier life. Let’s see then what Raidho means together with some more information about this ancient symbol and its magic.
What does Raidho rune mean?
The Raidho rune means travel. The Raidho rune has an Indo-European root, reidh-, from which the English words road and to ride derive. It represents a rider on the back of his horse with the front hoof raised, ready to go.
The symbols that can be connected to Raidho are the cosmic tree Yggdrasil, which means the horse of Ygg, or Odin, which symbolizes the profound understanding of the meaning of life that can only be obtained by traveling through the nine worlds.
Sleipnir, Odin’s eight-legged horse, also indicates the strength and energy needed when we decide to embark on a journey. In ancient times, the horse played an important role; the people who had horses available and raised them quickly became great conquerors.
With Ansuz we met our guide who invited us to take a new path and to leave for a new adventure, and Raidho is the journey we must undertake. An Anglo-Saxon poem tells us how comfortable and easy it is to stay at home, live with family, be among friends, and be supported, but sometimes there is the need to leave, to stop living for others, to be independent, and to find the right direction.
Raidho represents a new life, new paths to take, new experiences, new ideas, new responsibilities, and new companies.
When we are born, we begin to build our identity; thanks to the help of parents and family, we learn the rules and customs of society, how to behave and how to move in order to live better with other people, respecting a certain balance.
From year to year, our shadow grows in us with everything that is not accepted by society and does not conform to what we have learned. All this is more than normal but it has nothing to do with us and with the journey of life, a strictly personal journey that tests us through our actions and reactions.
During the journey, all the aspects that we have put aside, that we have forgotten, all our fears and stifled instincts are faced. But we are not alone; our family, friends, and ancestors support us, those who before us have embarked on their own journey.
The extraction of Raidho shows us that we have solved most of our problems and are ready to leave for a new adventure, such as a trip, a vacation, a new business, or a new relationship. Which path we take depends on our choices.
Raidho also represents an initiation, the awareness of the transition from one evolutionary stage to another, from childhood to adolescence, from adolescence to adulthood, from maturity to old age. The transition has already taken place and a new journey is about to begin.
Raidho meaning if upright
Associated with communication and the ultimate harmony of the elements at the end of a long journey, Raidho means research and struggle.
When this rune appears, we must have faith in the fact that the problem that torments us will soon be definitively solved, as long as we keep our goals clear and are persevering.
It is therefore time to act by trusting in our strength. Raidho can also announce the achievement, in a short time, of unexpected results or the imminent arrival of positive news from abroad.
Raidho meaning if reversed
We should look inward, within. It is very likely that we have not reached the goals we set ourselves because our mental attitude is negative (i.e. we do not believe in our projects, nor in our abilities) and because we are acting in the wrong way.
We must stop justifying ourselves and not accepting reality, but rather face the facts and make the necessary decisions, even if they are unpleasant.
Only in this way can we go further. Raidho reminds us that we must go forward, step by step, without fear of facing adversity.
Raidho meaning in love, work, and health
Love: you will experience exciting moments full of passion in the sentimental sphere, experiencing a feeling of fullness by satisfying the need to love passionately.
Work: you need to prepare well and acquire adequate training if your purpose is to achieve important professional goals. In the event that what was expected at work has already been achieved, a period of calm and order will follow.
Health: Health problems, if any, are of no concern. In any case, Raidho recommends walking outdoors, doing yoga, and exercising.
