Runes are ancient tools used for divination and communication. Runes stem from an ancient form of the Germanic alphabet, which was used by the Germanic and Nordic tribes for writing, divination, and magical purposes. Runic inscriptions have been found on stones, jewelry, weapons, and objects dating back to the 3rd century AD, but it’s likely that they existed long before that.
The runes can be used to help guide you through problems or issues and help show you what is likely to happen. They’re not a form of fortune-telling and don’t offer exact answers or give you advice. Instead, they offer different variables and suggest how you could behave if the event does occur. Runes are known for hinting towards answers, but leaving you to work out the details, which is where intuition is helpful.
To start your reading, find a quiet place to do your reading and start by having a period of quiet, where you clear your mind and focus on the reading you’re about to do. Think about the issue or question you have in mind and, if you so desire, you can say a prayer or call upon higher spirits to guide you with your reading. Then, you may cast and interpret your runes!
