Fé means wealth or cattle, as cattle were the equivalent of wealth. Meaning the more livestock you owned, the wealthier you were.
Stanza from the Icelandic Rune Poem:
Wealth is the cause of conflict among kinsmen
and fire of the sea
and path of the serpent.
Stanza from the Norwegian Rune Poem:
Wealth causes conflict among kinsmen;
a wolf is born in the woods.
