A Comparison of the Wiligut/von List Irminen/Armanen Runes-Fa/Feh/Feo

Wiligut rune-Fa

von List rune-Fa


`Thus that Rune was called the Rune "Fa".

Germination had already split the "I" into Matter and Spirit.
Circulating in the workings of creationwithout beginning or end...
Despite discord there was unity-therefore by a wise hand.`

[Secret King]

von List:

`Fa, feh, feo=fire-generation, fire-borer, livestock, [Vieh], property, to grow, to wander, to destroy, to shred[fetzen].

The first promises to help helpfully
in the struggle and in misery and in every difficulty.

The root-word "fa", which is symbolized as the "primordial word" in this rune, is the conceptual foundation of "arising", "being"[doing, working, ruling], and of "passing away to new arising"-and so of the transitoriness of all existence and therefore of the stability of the "ego" in constant transformation. This rune conceals, therefore, the skaldic solace that true wisdom only lives for the evolution of the future, while only the fool mourns over decay: "Generate your luck and you will have it!"`
