Runes reading dates back to medieval times when various German tribes across Northern Europe and Britain used an alphabet of graphic symbols known as the "Futhark". The word “Rune” itself can have several meanings and can refer to a secret or a mystery. Although they have been used for divination and magic for a very long time, we have no concrete evidence to indicate when Runes were first used for this purpose. These days Rune stones are commonly used for fortune telling and divination in a similar fashion to Tarot Cards.
Runes are not used to predict the future like some other divination tools. Instead, they allow you to understand where you are heading and where this might take you in life in the coming years of 2014, 2015, 2016. To make an accurate interpretation of Runes a good knowledge of their meaning is absolutely essential. Every individual Rune has a higher level meaning outside of its everyday interpretation and phonetic value.
However, this does not mean you have to know all of the rune meanings off by heart. You can start by learning to recognise the relationship between the stone and the Rune itself. You can do this by taking each stone in turn, holding it in your hand and examining it visually until this connection becomes apparent.
The value of reading Runes lies in their ability to assess your inner being and your current direction in life. If you don’t like what you hear you always have a choice to change your direction. So the tool can help you to find greater clarity about your direction in life and motivate you to find solutions to some of the issues you are facing.
Runes can be made from a variety of different types of stone. Depending on what you are trying to achieve from your reading you will need to use a different type of stone. In addition, the way in which the Runes are laid out for a reading will differ from reading to reading. This can influence the pattern and the positioning of the stones.
