He's listing the Elder Futhark runes (with Latin Characters) and their corresponding Anglo-Saxon Futhorc runes. For example, H in Elder Futhark was halgalaz and in Anglo-Saxon it became ᚻ (haegl), both usually symbolizing hail, or A in Elder Futhark corresponds to ansuz which was changed to correspond to o in A-S Futhorc as ᚩ (os), symbolizing god. I don't know where the other meanings come from, though I would guess from the "magic" in the title it has to do with that, and can think of much better ways to assign new "meanings" to Latin characters.
