Oracles and divination

Divination method: the days of the week

Part 1

In this blog I want to give some background material about a method I developed for a Tarot reading. Probably it can be used for the runes as well, but I have more experience with the tarot, so I’ll take my examples from that. I give it here, because someone asked for it, and because it is relevant to divination in general.

Why divination?

Divination is consulting omens or oracles.…

Othala: Identity, Race and Cultural Heritage

I am taking the liberty of violating my own Charter here, because rather than bury this in a thread which I have now closed, I felt I should start a personal blog post to clarify my position (and thus this community's policy) on the topic of 'racial identity', and 'cultural heritage' which has been a disappointing constraint of discussions about runology since Guido Von List's Armanen (edit: NOT Armanian) Runes, and their use in the Aryan mythology of the Nazi party last…

Enjoying the Ride

Always thought that old age is a bit dull. No more daring adventures, thrills or kicks. No more challenges, except letting go of course and becoming wise. Not true at all.

The body is like a used car, little things start to falter. The difference being that for each defect, you have to consult another specialist. Last week I had plastic surgery in my face, repair of trauma caused by an accident.  Was allowed to go home as soon as the narcosis had worn off. Yesterday I went to the same…

A thought for the day from the Universe

From my daily affirmations:

"Remember you once told me that if ever all of the circumstances in your life were aligned just so, your soon-to-be friends were in all the right places at all the right times, and the financial markets, social climate, and global energies had all reached optimal points... you'd want to be gently nudged as a subtle sign that it was time to start doing new things, saying new things, and visualizing so that you might catch these gargantuan waves of…

Raidho - The Journey

Raidho is the evolution of ourselves through active experience and exploration.


We are so used to having answers at our fingertips, that we are losing interest in the journey it takes to achieve understanding: we want the instant gratification of knowing, without the framework and the effort behind it. It is much easier to be passive than to actively seek out what you want. Being passively fed knowledge promotes an attitude of complacency that is all too rampant today.…

Runes as Pictographs - Isa

- Isa -

Isa is the last rune of the three primary rune shapes in my pictographic theory of the Elder Futhark. A great place to start the rest of the Futhark seeing as,…

Mannaz + Othala

Once upon a time, I made a little personal rune placing the top 'triangle' of Othala to join with the cross of Mannaz. My early readings on runes were limited to base definitions and to me it represented my love of humanity, and moreover my family. I expressed its meaning as "kindness for all and love for all" and I put a little bit of Wunjo inside the 'house' the image made. On the reverse of the charm it is inscribed on, are the runic symbols of my husband's initials, so this rune had a… Continue

Greetings to all / Horned Algiz!

First of all I would like to say hello to everyone within the Rune Secrets Study Community since this is my first blog post!

I'm really happy I found this place of people who study and care about the ancient runes, especially in  this period of my life in which my interest for the runes has been essentially rekindled.

Off to share some thoughts with you now!

Last night I started meditating on Algiz in a half lotus asana. Things were blurry at first, until my…

As I was meditating on healing last night, trying to put in practice the teachings only just stumbled across, Thurisaz kept flashing into my vision.  Persistent bugger that he was, I had to forcefully push him away, as I was not aware enough of what he represented.   (Must learn to be more trusting and welcoming!)


So, of course I turned here for the necessary information and read from Tyriels's excerpt and all of this community's commentary.  And if he pops in again, I will…
