Runic Magic and Divination By Crystalinks

Runic Magic and Divination

Rune stones, (sometimes cards), are used as tools of divination – a way to predict one’s future. Rune Stones come in a set of 24 ancient alphabetic symbols. They can be made of different materials – wood or glass most common and attractive – and usually kept in a pouch or box. They usually come with a book of instructions defining the symbols.

Ideally ruins are cast on an East-West axis or facing the sun. A white cloth is laid down and used to determine the direction of the casting. From here the focus should lie with the pressing question. After casting the stones onto the cloth the ones which have fallen the right side up are read and depending upon whether the rune is reversed or not will have a bearing upon its meaning and the reading as a whole.

An alternative to casting the rune stones …

Pick a rune stone randomly for a day reading; you can also do what is known as a 3 rune spread. Some feel that the day rune is a good way to get an answer to a single question. The 3 Rune Spread is used for asking broader questions whereas the single rune can be drawn on a daily basis.

There are many different methods of divination like scrying, rune casting or dowsing with a pendulum. Among these various methods is dowsing with a pendulum. This is the most basic and easy to learn form of divination.

What is Divination?

There are several definitions of what divination is. Divination is usually described as a form of practicing fortune telling. Some people do not believe in fortune telling and instead feel that we all have the power within us to shape our futures. They feel that nothing is truly set in stone until we make a decision that will shape it.

To those who don’t believe in fortune telling, divination is more of a way to gain insight into situations or questions. Those who don’t believe in fortune telling approach divination as a way to gain higher knowledge, guidance or mental clarity.

Not Into Halloween? Here are 13 Rituals to Celebrate Samhain | Gaia

By: Gaia Staff

Samhain is a time-honored tradition followed by witches, Wiccans, ancient druids and countless other modern pagans across the world, celebrated as October turns to November. Samhain is a festival of the Dead, meaning “Summer’s End,” and though you’re probably tempted to pronounce it “sam-hane,” it’s actually pronounced saah-win or saah-ween.

What is a Samhain Celebration?

Tradition holds that Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest and the start of the coldest half of the year, and with this transition it’s also celebrated as the beginning of the spiritual new year for practitioners, which is also why it’s nicknamed “The Witches’ New Year.”

How to Celebrate Samhain

Samhain is typically celebrated by preparing a dinner to celebrate the harvest. The holiday is meant to be shared with those who have passed on as well as those still with us. Set a place at the table for those in the spiritual plane, providing an offering for them upon every serving throughout the meal. In addition to those who have passed, invite friends and family to enjoy the feast with you. Typical beverages include mulled wine, cider, and mead, and are to be shared with the Dead throughout the meal.

Despite occurring at similar times and containing similar themes, Samhain and Halloween actually are not the same holiday. Halloween, short for All Hallow’s Eve, is celebrated on and around

Fairies | Witchcraft – Pagan, Wiccan, Occult and M­­agic by Magic

FAIRIES

The term fairy can be used to describe many types of magical creatures. Most people relate the word fairy to the more ethereal image, the classic fairy with wings and flowing hair. Fairies are human in appearance and they have magical powers, the origin of fairies is the point of much contention as no one can actually say where they originated from.

Fairies are capable of making themselves invisible sometimes, fairies actually fly on the back of birds and they are very in tune with the creatures of the sky. Fairies are very intelligent creatures and their fragility is deceptive, they are actually powerful magicians and very strong mentally and physically.

Children who have imaginary friends are actually talking to fairies, as fairies feel most comfortable with children and are often drawn to their laughter. Adults catch fairies
