If anyone knows where I can find Rune graphics drop me a line!

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

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.

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"

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...)
