"It is experienced if you ask the runes, the goddescended, created by the mightiest gods and drawn by the giantpoet!"
Havamal, Edda-Poem

In germanic mythology, the runes were given to the humans by Odin, the chief god and ruler of Asgard. He hung on the world tree Yggdrasil for 9 days and nights, hurt by his own spear. After all this pain he received the magical runes, who made the spoken word repeatable for eternal time. A real wonder for the ancient people! This divine origin explains the connection between the runes and the magical use. Each rune had a name, representing the sound of it´s pronunciation. Most names are reconstructable by the rune poems of the 8th century and by comparison  with the Gothic alphabet. The meaning is created by the translation of the rune´s name.
The roman author and historian Tacitus (56-117 AD) described, how the Germans tried to find answers on their questions by the help of the runes:

"Noone cares about oracels as much as they do. They cut a branch from a fruit bearing tree, dividing him in small parts. They draw signs on the pieces and throw them without plan, like the coincidence decides, on a white cloth. In case of a public questioning, the priest of the tribe - in private cases the housefather - raises his eyes to sky, draws three branch pieces and interprets them concerning the carved signs."

Still today, the 24 runes of the elder Futhark (alphabet) are the base of a rudimentary rune magic, beeing practised seriously.
The rune Raido is the equivalent of the letter "R", the translated meaning is "journey" or "ride". The rune of a good journey is assigned to the god Thor, the heal power strenghtens the legs.
