I never know what to say in these things. Feel free to ask me if there is anything else you would like to know :)

I am here to learn more about the runes, their meanings, and how they relate to each other. I was first introduced to them in 1998 by my freshman roommate in college. I mostly use them for insight when I am having trouble sorting out my thoughts, or am not sure if I am making correct decisions. Sometimes I want to know what the outcome would be of certain decisions.

Though years ago I attempted to make basic talismans, I decided against the least until I understood things better. It seemed dangerous to mess around with forces I didn't understand all that well. My main concern currently is to simply learn to read them better when I cast them. Also maybe to learn some different methods.

Because I'm a pretty infrequent user, and I have never met anyone else who had any knowledge of them, I am afraid that I don't know as much as I should after all these years.

At this time, I have a set that I made 10 years ago. The materials used were synthetic since I lived in the city, and was pregnant and poor. They are made of green glass stones and acrylic paint, lol. But they have served me well enough. I keep them stored with some of my favorite things in a bag that I had made out of an old shirt of mine that was too worn to wear anymore, along with the book I have always used to interpret them. Nobody else has ever touched them.

The book I currently use is Lisa Peschel's Practical Guide to the Runes. It is the same one I was taught from years ago.

I hope to learn a lot here! Thanks for reading :)
When did you begin using the runes?
What rune(s) are you most concerned with?
Tir and Gifu have always been the ones that stand out to me the most. So, if I had to pick, those would be the ones I would choose to focus on.
Who are your favorite authors on the runes?

11/14/12 My Rune of the Day - Hagal

Posted on November 14, 2012 at 8:23am 8 Comments

This morning I had an urge to pull a single rune before heading to work. This is not something I normally fact, I can't remember the last time I have. But something was telling me that I should, so I did.


The rune pulled was Hagal. To me, this rune tells me that there may be turmoil, that I have no control over the situation(s), and that I might as well quit stressing. Roll with the punches, and all will be well in the end.


This is very timely advice…
