What Are Runes?
Runes is an ancient alphabet that was mainly used by the germanic tribes before the arrival of the Roman Empire and the Latin alphabet. After the collapse of the Roman Empire, the runic alphabet was spread throughout Europe by the vikings which resulted in variations on the alphabet depending upon the geographical location. It finally became settled into a basic alphabet of 24 Runes called the “Futhark”. This set contains 25 tumbled stones ( 24 letters of the Runic alphabet & a blank Rune, often named "Odin", which represents the “unknown”). Runes are ideal for divination, decision making & communication.
How to Use Runes?
Lay down a cloth and decide which part will be “down” and “up”. Ideally ruins are cast on an East-West axis or facing the sun. Then focus on the question for the casting. Runes should then be drawn from either a box or pouch where they should be kept at all times. After casting the stones onto the cloth the ones which have fallen the right side up are read and depending upon whether the rune is reversed or not, it will have a bearing upon its meaning and the reading as a whole.
An alternative to casting the rune stones .....
Pick a rune stone randomly for a day reading; keep your eyes closed and concentrate on the questions for your casting. Then put your hand in the pile of runes and pick one. Some feel that the day rune is a good way to get an answer to a single question.
You can also do what is known as a 3 rune spread. The first rune is an answer to a past situation (Past events or current situation related to your question), the second one is an answer to a present situation ( challenges & obstacles that you need to overcome regarding your question) and the last is an answer to a future situation (what is likely to happen as a result of the challenge). The 3 Rune Spread is used for asking broader questions whereas the single rune can be drawn on a daily basis
.*Please be advised that that upon purchase you will receive 25 Runes. However, this kit does not include any booklets or manuals.
