Rune....What it symbolizes

Uruz - Strength, determination, health, and sometimes the higher self. Looks like an upside-down "U"

Thurisaz - Chaos, conflict. Also represents true will. Looks sort of like this: |> ...kinda.

Ansuz - Wisdom and the occult. Also power, revenge, and sometimes healing. Looks like an "F" with the tines slanted downwards

Gebo - Agreements, settlements and union, and boundries. Looks like this: X

Wunjo - Blessings, success, and fertility. Somtimes points to the controlling of will. Looks like a "P" with all striaght lines (the hump is a triangle)

Jera - Gentle change, cycle, time. Also can symbolize gestation. Looks like these two signs > <, the first above and to the right of the second one

Eiwaz - Outgoing, dynamic, GO!! Also can mean hunting or evolution. Tough to describe...sort of like a "Z" except backwards and slanted where it's supposed to be stright, and vice versa

Pertho - Secret, discovery of hidden, and history. Looks kinda like a "C" drawn with straight lines, and a ^ for the bottom (an upside down ^ for the top)

Algiz - Protection, shield, and help. Looks kinda like a "Y" with the middle line projecting up between the tines a small distance.

Sowulo - Healing, strength, centering, and luck. Looks like someone drew a lightning bolt with three straight lines.

Teiwaz - Justice, legal matters, dedication, and bravery. Looks like an arrow pointing up.

Bekana - Emotional stability, birth, and "women's mysteries". Looks like a "B" with all straight lines. (triangles for the humps, not squares)

Ehwaz - Shapeshifter, adjustments. Also sometimes means a telepathic link. Looks like an "M"

Mannuz - Communications, cooporations, and legal affairs. Looks like two Wunjos facing each other.

Laguz - Occult, influence, and movement. Also sometimes represents sex. Looks like the right half of Teiwaz.

Inguz - Progression and fertility. Can also symbolize the Astral. Looks like these two symbols > < overlapping.

Othila - Centering, grounding, invoking, family, values, and Kundalini energy (when I learn more I hope to put a page about Kundalini). Looks like X with ^ on top. Sorta like a fish.

Dagas - Invisible, catalyst, between worlds. Looks like an infinity sign drawn with straight lines.

The Blank Rune - The unknown or unknowable. Also called the Rune of Odin. If you can't guess what this one looks like I ain't gonna help ya. (I recently found a page which says there is no historical evidence to back up the existance of a blank rune in ancient times. I was a bit dissapointed, especially since it really seems to work...)
