A while back we got some really beautiful rune stones in our shop.
So, last week I took a bag and started doing some very basic spreads.
Now, I have to admit that divination with runes has never been my one of my strong suits. I have always been more of a tarot cards guy myself…
…but, this has TOTALLY changed my mind about how I feel about rune stones!
So, if you too feel a little intimidated by rune stones, I want to help you out.
And it’s actually very easy to cast with runes and I have A VERY SIMPLE spread for you that you can start to use right away…
It’s gonna be a little tricky to explain this, but I’ll try to do my very best.
The 5 Stone Rune Casting Method
Before doing anything else, you ask a question. Not just a yes or no question, but something a little more… uhm… tricky…
For example: “What will happen in the next 1-3 months if I do so and so” or “how will my relationship with mr. X turn out if we do this and that”…
You need 5 stones (obviously) and you need to place them kinda in a cross. Like this:
You should pick the stones at random from your Rune Stones bag and place them on the table. For now, just place them all heads up, so you can see the runes (later, when you get better, you can play around with reversed runes as well).
THE ORDER IS SUPER IMPORTANT! So don’t just put them randomly.
Start with one stone in the middle and then one to the left, then one below etc. (just like the image above)
Stone #1 represents your current problem or your state of mind. If the stone is negative or if it doesn’t seem to make any sense, it’s probably because you are confused right now (e.g. you mind isn’t focused) or because you are VERY troubled… Either way, go lay down or meditate for 5 minutes and try again (with a NEW spread).
Now, stone #2 represents the past. What you have gone through and what have brought you to your current situation.
Stone #3 will tell you what you need to deal with. Sometimes it requires help from people or your gods. If it’s a negative stone, it represent an obstacle you need to overcome.
Rune stone #4 basically tells you about the stuff you just have to accept. Sometimes there’s things you cannot change. Deal with it! At least for now…
And finally, stone number #5 shows you what to expect when you have dealt with
