Fehu means cattle, a measure of wealth to the ancients. Today Fehu means movable wealth, such as money and
possessions. It also implies the energy and hard work that leads to wealth. Fehu can mean emotional and spiritual riches,
as well as money.
Fehu is Frey’s rune, and he is the god of fertility, itself a form of wealth. It is a rune of unselfish abundance. Let
it shine forth to lighten your path and the paths of others. You will never run out of your spiritual richness, but don’t
waste it on those who will abuse it. Discernment is important.
Failed ambition. Health problems. Poverty. Love unrequited. Bad luck.

Tarot Talk by Leila Vey
Many tarot experts associate Fehu with
The Empress, and certainly this makes sense, given that the
Empress stands for abundance, wealth, love and beauty.
Freya is often seen as an Empress figure, which also ties her with Fehu.

The Rune Poem: Verse I Fehu
Wealth is a consolation to all men
Yet much of it must each man give away
If glory he desire
To gain before his god.
