Runes. How are they used in Rituals or Predictions.

Anyway. Firstly Runes What are they.

There are 25 Runes in the Nordic Rune Set, each one representing a different aspect of life and issues that can pop up in life. 13 of theses Runes deal with what is term the cycle of self transformation.

The different Runes are

Manmaz - The Self Gebo - Partnership *Ansuz - Signals
*Othila - Seperation *Uruz - Strength *Perth - Initiation
*Nauthiz - Constraints *Inguz -Fertility Eihwaz -Defence
Algiz - Protection Fehu - Possessions Wunjo - Joy
Jera - Harvest *Kano - Opening Teiwaz -Warrior
*Berkanan - Growth Ehwaz - Movement Laguz - Flow
*Hagalaz - Disruption *Raido - Communication *Thurisaz - Gateway
*Dagaz - Breakthrough Isa - Standstill Sowelu - Wholeness
Odin - The Unknowable

* represents the stone for the cycle of transformation.
and here is a piccy of them
I will continue in a new box.

Ok thats the easy part. Creating your set of runes. Most people make there own Runes to use. Finding some good stones and carving them out.
Then blessing them and the rest. I wont go into the full rituals here anyway.

Now Divination. There are multiple ways of using the Runes in Divinations. With Runes stone you always read then Right to Left...unlike reading this text.

I found that alot of people adapt Reading Runes to very much the same as Tarots, the Celtic Cross is a favorite spread used.

Odin's Rune is also another divination method. That is when you think of a topic and then pull a Rune from the bag. You the interpret the idea from the Runic meaning, as always.

Now Divination with Runes is very different in a major aspect. It will normally show different paths and issues relating to them. It will give you what is called the Best outcome, but that is not the only outcome avaliable from the situation.

Hmmm i will post more information if people need it.

Next lesson, wont do it tonight, will be on Ritual Use of Runes and why Runes are inscribed in items.......

Sorry Tarty looks like i might be posting a very long thread here....

*sigh*

There are 3 'families' of Runes that were used in old times, plus another created by Guido Von List.
They are-

Elder, constisting of 24 Runes. (similar to your post, though some of your meanings are off)

Younger or Icelandic, consisting of 16 Runes.

Anglo-Saxon, consisting of 33 Runes.

Armenian, (created by Von List) constisting of 18 Runes.

Runes are historically carved from wood, not stone, for divination.

Here is a part from 'Germania' by Tacitus concerning his witnes of Rune use-

Auguries and Method of Divination. Augury and divination by lot no people practise more diligently. The use of
the lots is simple. A little bough is lopped off a fruit-bearing tree, and cut into small pieces; these are distinguished
by certain marks, and thrown carelessly and at random over a white garment. In public questions the priest of the
particular state, in private the father of the family, invokes the gods, and, with his eyes toward heaven, takes up
each piece three times, and finds in them a meaning according to the mark previously impressed on them. If they
prove unfavourable, there is no further consultation that day about the matter; if they sanction it, the confirmation
of augury is still required. For they are also familiar with the practice of consulting the notes and flight of birds. It is
peculiar to this people to seek omens and monitions from horses. Kept at the public expense, in these same
woods and groves, are white horses, pure from the taint of earthly labour; these are yoked to a sacred car, and
accompanied by the priest and the king, or chief of the tribe, who note their neighings and snortings. No species of
augury is more trusted, not only by the people and by the nobility, but also by the priests, who regard themselves
as the ministers of the gods, and the horses as acquainted with their will.

Will.

Thank you for your information. What i put forward is what ive learn. There are also more versions of Runes, including the Druidic Tree Runes. Each is different. Im just putting the information about the style of Runes that I uses. I was going to post more on history of Runes later and go into more description of it.

There's a lot of 'versions' being created these days. Often with little to no research into the old ways. (As with Von List & Blum)

The Celtic 'runes' (Ogham) are similar in that they are scratched into wood or stone as writing, & can be used in Divination, but they are not truly Runes. The word 'Rune' comes from the Old Norse word 'Runa' meaning 'whispered' or 'secret'. (something that led Von List astray, not knowing that the '18 Charms' (Runes) listed in Havamal DIDN'T mean the written Rune staves...)

Sorry if I jumped ahead in your 'Lesson Plan'. :-)
