The mystery of the runes…
Rune stones are an ancient proto-Germanic tradition dating back to the 1st century AD. The Elder Futhark consists of a runic alphabet of 24 letters, usually made out of wood or stone that were used as a method of fortune-telling and protection sigils.
The first completion of the total alphabet was the Elder Futhark runes in the 5th century AD, that are most often used still today, and then the Younger Futhark stones were adapted by the Vikings and other Nordic tribes and continued until Medieval times. Many rune stones still exist in England and were still used by the Anglo Saxons up till around the year 900AD. Runes stones are full of powerful and magical history, and so were highly venerated and used with care.
Many ancient buildings in Scandinavia still have “Bind Runes”, an early form of the modern sigil idea, etched into them for protection or luck or fertility! Even in modern times, the famous “Bluetooth” symbol is a bindrune!
In the Norse and Saxon cultures, it was believed that they held strong divinatory powers and as such were taken very seriously. The origin of word “rune” stems from the Germanic word for “mystery” or “secret”, and similar findings are present in Old Irish Gaelic, Welsh and Old English, sometimes also meaning “miracle”. In Lithuanian it can me “to speak”, and in Finnish it can also mean “poem”.
These days, runes are used as a method of connecting to one’s higher self, inner guidance and tapping into intuition as a method of foretelling what the future may hold and offering advice (similar to Tarot Cards).
Just like Tarot they can also be used in spells and manifestation ritual work by witches and pagans, lay out the runes on your altar or charging plate that corresponds to your desires and outcomes.
