The divinatory use of runes has been proven for centuries. Indeed, the Celtic and Germanic peoples often consulted the future by the reading of the runes. Nowadays, there are psychics who still use that way to predict events. But how to read the runes? This is what we will see later.
What are the runes made of?
The runes are pebbles on which figures are inscribed. There are usually 24 figures of the Runic alphabet. This alphabet is also called Futhark. It would have been given to men by the god Odin himself. For some centuries, these pebbles adorned with figures of this alphabet are part of the divinatory arts. Like free tarot readings online, drawing these figures can predict the future. This is further supported by the fact that ancient Celtic and Germanic associated god with each rune. Thus, the runes would be endowed with magical powers. Magical powers that seers use today to predict future events.
How to read and understand the runes?
Like the tarot, the runes are played by drawing. The person who consults first asks a question and then a draw is made. There are several types of printing and therefore several types of interpretation. But the most common technique is to shoot 3 runes and arrange them online in front of you. Indeed, we have runes drawn from left to right.
The left rune represents the past, the middle rune the present, and the right rune the future. Thus, the reading is done horizontally from left to right. However, the position of the runes is also important. Be it upside down, sideways, etc. the position of the rune gives rise to a particular interpretation.
On the other hand, there is the cross print. Here, it’s about drawing five runes and arranging them in a cross shape. The order of draw is as follows: the first rune at the bottom, the second on the left, the third at the top, the fourth at the right and the fifth in the middle. With so many runes, interpreting events becomes more complex as several variables come into play such as the distant future, the near future, the general climate, and so on.
