Original meaning: Mystery
There is much still hidden. Trust your intuition. Activities dealing with the occult are favored. You may find that which was thought lost forever.

The meaning of the word Peorþ (Peorth) is unknown, but many have taken it to mean 'lot box" and therefore see a link to Wyrd. However, it is important to remember that nothing is truly random, there is a cause for everything even if our mortal minds cannot comprehend it. The laws of cause and effect were set down long ago and the entire universe must follow this laws set down in Wyrd. The verse of the "Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem" also stresses the happiness of warriors gaming together. This may be symbolic of warriors going off to face their wyrds, the doom of battle, without out fear, but laughing in the face of death. Taticus speaks of Germanic tribesmen gambling themselves into the point of slavery, and then cheerfully accepting that state.

Even the mention of the Beerhall in the "Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem" brings in the concept of Wyrd. The beerhall was where the ancient Germanic ritual of symbel was commonly held. Symbel is a rite to place one's self into the flow of the events of Wyrd, to better understand one's actions, and act accordingly. (Bauschatz, page 83). Symbel is an Átrú drinking rite in which rounds are made; with the first round the Norse gods are boasted, with the second the ancestors of those present, and after the third participants boast of their own past deeds and then vow to do greater ones. The point of this rite is to place one's self in touch with Wyrd and thereby gain mægen by boasting of great deeds one can accomplish.

In divination Peorþ may mean a stroke of luck or indicate the unknown. It is rarely used in spellwork, but may be used to bring about the outcome of one's wyrd
